  • Mrmet19 shared from The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods by Hank Haney
    He was averse to loud and cocky players, especially if he felt their records didn’t warrant all the talk. He wasn’t a fan of Ian Poulter, for example. A couple of weeks before the 2007 U.S. Open at Oakmont, a few players drove to the Pittsburgh area course after the Memorial Tournament in relatively nearby Columbus to get in some practice rounds. Poulter was one of them, and while there he was cheeky enough to ask Tiger, “How are we getting home?” He knew Tiger had a plane at his disposal, and that he sometimes gave other players who lived in Orlando a ride. But Tiger did that for guys...

    I would soon find out that though Tiger might let loose with a fierce uppercut or leg kick when a winning putt dropped on the 72nd hole, he’d become pretty blasé by the time he gathered his stuff in the locker room. After victories, Steve Williams and I developed a little ritual in which we privately congratulated each other in a humorously exaggerated way while we waited for Tiger.

    If he hit a really good one, I’d say, “That was incredible.” If I happened to do something that was better than average, he’d never say, “Good shot.” He would go with, “Where the fuck did that come from?” or, “How did you do that?” That was Tiger’s version of affection.

    I always remember a quirky aspect of Tiger’s behavior that in retrospect says a lot about how it was with him. When we were watching television after dinner, he’d sometimes go to the refrigerator to get a sugar-free popsicle. But he never offered me one or ever came back with one, and one night I really wanted one of those popsicles. But I found myself sitting kind of frozen, not knowing what to do next. I didn’t feel right just going to the refrigerator and taking one, and I kind of started laughing to myself at how hesitant I was to ask Tiger for one. It actually took me a while to summon...

    If the line appears to be pointed open to the target, your brain tells your motor system to pull your putt to get it on line. You must eliminate this optical parallax.

    Optically, in the address position, the ability to aim a perpendicular line to a target appears more accurate than aiming a straight line. But many players need more help than just aiming with their putterface.
