Truth & Rumors: Tiger Woods says he’s had ‘lean years’ before

Posted at 12:45 PM by Mike Walker

Tiger Woods, who recently lost the No. 1 ranking he held for more than five years after a winless 2010, said in an interview with the BBC that he’s gone through slumps before and he hopes to start winning soon once his new swing changes take hold.

"I'm rebuilding my game, making a number of different swing changes. I've done this before. I had lean years with [former coach] Butch Harmon. I won the Masters in '97, changed my swing - then went from the middle of '97 to the middle of '99 with only one win.

"It's a matter of staying the course, believing in what I'm doing and eventually when it kicks in hopefully I'll win some tournaments."

Woods also said that winning more major championships than Jack Nicklaus is still his goal. Woods has 14 major championships, while Nicklaus won a record 18.

"It's a career. It took Jack over 20 years and I haven't been playing that long," he reasoned. "No-one has done better than Jack with 18... at the end of the day, hopefully I'll have more than 18 major championships.

"I'm only 34 -- Ben Hogan didn't start winning his [majors] until after my age - all nine of them - so I'm looking forward to it."

Woods admitted it had been a "tough 12 months" following revelations about his private life but stated: "I'm in a much, much better place.

"I'm much happier, much more balanced. I've gone through a lot and thank God I did, because I needed to put my life back into an order and a balance.

"It was rough going, but boy I'm glad I'm at the spot I'm at now. It feels good."

Golf-ranking guy defends No. 1 system after Butch Harmon criticism

The Official World Golf Rankings have replaced Lisa Pavin’s Ryder Cup fashion choices as the most-criticized subject in the game since Lee Westwood replaced Tiger Woods as No. 1 despite hardly playing since August. Butch Harmon weighed in Monday, saying the “system sucked” and that PGA Championship winner Martin Kaymer should be No. 1. In an interview with Reuters European Tour statistics expert Ian Barker defended the ranking system, which uses the previous two years of results to rank players.

"What Butch is effectively saying is that the rankings should be done over a shorter period. "If we just prepared it on the points won so far this year Woods would not be in the top 50 and Martin Kaymer would be comfortably the world number one," Barker, the European Tour's director of information services, told Reuters.

How Lee Westwood got in No. 1 shape

We always thought Lee Westwood trained like one of those boxers who switches to light beer before a big fight, but James Corrigan of The Independent (UK) talks to the fitness guru behind Westwood’s remarkable run to the top spot.

The Englishman's fitness coach is also seeing his stock rise still further as the reports continue to emerge of the expert with the power to rebuild the multi-million dollar man.

Except labeling Steve McGregor a mere "fitness coach" is a bit like calling Ross Brawn "a mechanic". As Westwood himself points out, what McGregor preaches has "a lot more to do with science than sweat". Since his moment of self-realization on a range four years ago – "I looked at Tiger, Ernie, Phil and Retief and said 'I am way too heavy'," – Westwood has been transformed, shedding almost three stones and seven inches off his waist. The scientist judges it in different terms.

"In the four years we've been working together he's probably lost more than 50 per cent in body fat, which is a big mass," McGregor told The Independent yesterday.

Sean Foley and Butch Harmon chat Friday at Whistling Straits

Posted at 1:48 PM by David Dusek

IMG_0846 SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – Moments after the golfers left the practice green this morning, Sean Foley, the man many people assume will become Tiger Woods's next swing coach, walked behind Butch Harmon, Woods's coach for eight years.

"Hey Hollywood!" Harmon called out to Foley, who turned around and smiled under the low brim of his visor.

Foley walked over to Harman and said, "Man, I've got a good one for ya." The two men then lowered their voices and had a five-minute discussion.

They never raised their voices above a whisper, but at one point Harmon put his arm around Foley's shoulder. Harmon is not only in the very unique position to advise Foley on what coaching Tiger Woods is like, but also about effectively coaching several top players at once. His stable includes Phil Mickelson, Nick Watney, Stewart Cink and Dustin Johnson. Foley is currently coaching Sean O'Hair, Hunter Mahan, Justin Rose and Stephen Ames.

As Foley walked toward the clubhouse, Harmon called out to him, "Hey, how about a match with my four versus your four ... and we get to do the announcing. HA!"

Truth & Rumors: Obama snubs Limbaugh, more on Blasberg and another Harmon for Tiger

Posted at 12:12 PM by Steve Beslow
According to The New York Post, Zev Chafet's new biography of conservative stalwart Rush Limbaugh reveals that he tentatively sought out a presidential pairing last year, only to be rebuffed by the Golfer in Chief.

"You guys are both golfers," Chafets told Limbaugh. "Would you play a round with the president and show the country that there are no hard feelings?"

"He's the president of the United States," Limbaugh told Chafets. "If any president asked me to meet him, or play golf with him, I'd do it. But I promise you that will never happen. His base on the left would have a s--t-fit."

"How about letting me ask?" Chafets said.

"Go ahead," Limbaugh said. "Nothing will come of it."

Chafets writes that he reached out to Obama adviser David Axelrod, "whom I know slightly," but Axelrod didn't return calls. Then Chafets spoke to "a very senior Democratic activist with whom I'm friendly" who said he would convey the message. A day or two later the adviser responded, "Limbaugh can play with himself." Chafets wouldn't name the aide or say whether the quote was directly from Obama.

While I would love to see Obama and Limbaugh (a purported 16-handicap) teeing it up, I can't blame the President for turning down the request. Rush doesn't exactly seem like the kind of guy who would stop talking in your backswing.

VIDEO UPDATE: Limbaugh responds to Page 6 report.

Unanswered questions in Erica Blasberg's death

When dealing with an epically heartbreaking event like the death of 25-year-old LPGA player Erica Blasberg, it's tempting to write, "what more can you say?" and just try to move on. But the truth is that, somehow, we know as little (or somehow seemingly less) about her tragic last day than we did on Sunday, when her body was discovered at her home in Nevada. Christian Red from The New York Daily News gives the latest update on the investigation, which is startlingly low on details after this much time.

The sudden death of a beautiful young LPGA golfer remained shrouded in mystery Tuesday, when her father said he has serious questions about how she died.

"At first glance, it looks like she might have taken her own life, but at second glance, something is very, very strange about it," Mel Blasberg told the Riverside Press-Enterprise in California. "Either way, I lost her and it's impossible to deal with."

Erica Blasberg, a 25-year-old two-time All-American from the University of Arizona, was found dead Sunday in her two-story, three-bedroom home in Henderson, Nev.

"She died on Mother's Day. [Her mom, Debra Blasberg] didn't get the phone call, so she knew something was wrong," the golfer's aunt, Ilene Osinski, told the Daily News. Police won't say how she died.

Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul called it "a death investigation." He wouldn't say who placed the 3 p.m. 911 call.

In a more personal look at the effect this tragedy is having, The New York Times' Karen Crouse talked to some of Blasberg's comrades and competitors yesterday.

The practice range is where the women of the L.P.G.A. Tour gather early in the workweek to exchange gossip and girl talk. It is their water cooler, a usually festive place where beautiful swings compete with buoyant personalities for attention.

A pall hung over the range at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Magnolia Grove on Tuesday as competitors in this week’s Bell Micro L.P.G.A. Classic struggled to accept that Erica Blasberg would not be blowing through like a welcome breeze.

After hitting a few shots, Irene Cho stood with red-rimmed eyes and talked about the plans she had made with Blasberg, her best friend on the tour, to meet for dinner the night before Blasberg, 25, played for a spot in the field during Monday qualifying.

They had confirmed plans in a phone conversation last week, but Blasberg never made it. She was found dead on Sunday afternoon after the police responded to a 911 call from Blasberg’s suburban Las Vegas home.

“I think everybody is kind of shocked,” Cho said.

Crouse's piece also includes an interesting fact that seems to have gone unreported elsewhere. Blasberg's agent has stated that her bags were packed to attend this week's tournament in Alabama, but Irene Cho's caddy (who was supposed to be on Blasberg's bag Monday) says she received a text from Blasberg in the middle of the night on Saturday/Sunday, saying that she wouldn't be coming. 

Also, Stephanie Wei at "Wei Under Par" has an LPGA memo regarding a memorial service and tribute to Blasberg tonight at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

Needless to say, we will be covering this story as respectfully as we can over the coming days and weeks. Our thoughts are with Blasberg's family as well as her friends and colleagues on the LPGA Tour.

Tiger to work with Harmon? No, not that one, the other one

Call me a latte-sipping, arugala-eating, East Coast liberal elitest, but I just couldn't get enough of The New York Times this morning. Bill Pennington, writing for their On Par golf blog, has an interesting suggestion for where Tiger might look in his search for a Hank Haney replacement.

And while Woods’s former and highly successful coach, Butch Harmon, is being mentioned in every story about the Haney/Woods split, it is hard to imagine any scenario that puts Woods and Harmon in a player/coach relationship again. One, Woods does not admit mistakes all that often, and two, Harmon is currently being paid to help Phil Mickelson usurp Woods as the No. 1 player in the world.

So there’s just a bit of conflict of interest there.

Others, like the Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee, who has been incisive on the deteriorating Woods golf game in recent weeks, suggested that Woods start visiting a different Harmon, Butch’s brother Billy. There are three Harmon brothers, all of them noted golf teachers, as was their father, Claude. Another brother, Dick, died unexpectedly in 2006 and at one time tutored Fred Couples, Lanny Wadkins, Jay Haas and Lucas Glover, who went on to win the 2009 United States Open. Craig Harmon is the well-known pro at the Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester.

This isn't the first time I've heard Billy Harmon mentioned as a good coaching candidate for Woods, but Pennington's reasoning is interesting, in that it goes beyond just coaching ability. Pennington suggests that Billy, who is the most affable of the three Harmon brothers, might not just instill a change of swing, but also a change of attitude from the suddenly morose No. 1 golfer.

Daily Flogging: Ben Crane survives at Torrey; Phil Mickelson and others falter

Posted at 12:01 PM by Gary Van Sickle

With the likes of Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els and Robert Allenby in the chase, you weren't the only one who was surprised by Ben Crane's victory in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. So, too, was Crane, who up until now has been best known for being golf's poster boy for slow play.

Seriously, Crane two-putted the final green, holing a three-footer, and still didn't know he'd won. Take it from Mick Elliott of AOL Fanhouse:

That's when Crane turned quizzically to caddie Joel Stock, looking very much like a man suddenly realizing his pants were on fire.

"You know, I did not know that I had won when it was over," Crane said. "I didn't know who was playing well. I didn't know what was really going on in front of me. I had no idea what was going on. I'm thankful I didn't. Someone said, 'one-shot lead' when we were going to the last hole, so I thought he might be right."

Still, Crane insisted victory did not register until final-group playing partner Ryuji Imada made it official. "He goes, 'Congratulations,' and I go, 'Did I win?' " Crane said. "He kind of looks at me. I said, 'Did I win the tournament?' He's like, 'Yeah.' "

The funny thing was, the guys who didn't win got almost as much attention as Crane. The most noteworthy story belonged to Aussie Allenby, whose chances of winning vanished when his 7-iron approach shot air-mailed the green at the 14th hole. It was the dreaded flyer shot that everyone has been talking about -- a ball jumping farther than normal off the face of the club from the rough due to the new grooves.

On ESPN.com, Bob Harig focused on Allenby's wayward shot:

"I think it's still going," the Aussie said disgustedly afterward. "It's going for a surf."

Allenby was kicking himself for blowing his second chance at victory in two tournaments -- in both, a "flyer" cost him. He was very much in favor of the new rule in place this year that limits the space in grooves -- the intended consequences now biting Allenby twice.

"I think, if you really look at it, it's cost me two tournaments, definitely," Allenby said. "I was in the groove. And feeling ready to do it today. It was such a shame that it happened... You know what, I don't have a problem with it (the rule). Obviously, two shots have cost me two tournaments. But at least they're costing me tournaments."

Meanwhile, fellow Aussie Michael Sim (perhaps the leader of the up-and-coming-young-stars group) astonished the CBS telecast crew by not going for the par-5 18th green in two when he trailed leader Ben Crane by one shot. Instead, Sim played it safe, laid up and made a par, allowing Crane to win with a routine par.

No writers took Sim to task, but Brent Read let Sim explain himself in The Australian

"I think I could have got there, but I had to hit it flush, and I wasn't swinging that well and just decided to lay up to a comfortable number. I felt like I hit a great shot, landed in a perfect spot. I just had too much spin on it. I'm sure a lot of guys probably did the same on that last hole today... I won three tournaments last year on the Nationwide Tour, and it was just different out there today. You know, you're out there to try and win your first PGA Tour event, and I felt like I handled myself pretty good after getting off to such a rough start. I felt like I struggled with my swing, especially today and yesterday. It was a mentally tough week. So to finish in second place, (I'm) extremely happy."

Hometown hero Mickelson didn't get the job done in the final round, either. He shot 73 and dropped from fifth to 19th. His final-round charge never materialized after he opened with three straight bogeys. As the San Diego Union-Tribune pointed out, it was the ninth straight year he failed to win his hometown event and, coincidentally, it's been nine years since the South Course was remodeled by Rees Jones. The Union-Trib's Phil wrapup:

“Yeah, I would like to play better out here,” Mickelson said when asked if he’s frustrated by the victory drought here. “I’ve struggled on the course since it’s been redesigned, but everybody’s got to play it. I just haven’t played it as well as others. I still look at this tournament with a great fondness... I know where I want to go with my game. It didn’t feel as bad as the score reflected. I’m looking forward to L.A. I’ve had some good results there in the past."

Adding to yesterday’s frustration was that Mickelson’s coach, Butch Harmon, came to Torrey Pines for some pre-round work and Mickelson said he had a “good warm-up session.”

“He was so amped up and excited to play he almost was like a racehorse in the gate, biting at the bit to get out,” Harmon said. “To me he was so ready to play that he almost put too much pressure on himself. He was so anxious, more than anything. But he’s fine.”

Butch Harmon says Tiger could return in March

Posted at 2:56 PM by Mike Walker

Tiger Woods's ex-coach Butch Harmon says that he expects Woods will return to golf this year, likely before the Masters Tournament in April, according to a Reuters report.

"Those who say he won't play again are crazy," Harmon said in an interview with Sky Sports on Friday.

"People who say he probably won't play this year, I don't really believe that (either). If you want to put a timetable on it, I'd say you may see him in Florida before the U.S. Masters (in April)."

Woods is in self-imposed exile from the game following revelations late last year of his extramarital affairs. Harmon coached Woods for ten years until they split in 2002.

Mickelson beats Tiger to the range Tuesday morning

Posted at 10:34 AM by David Dusek

Philmickelsontigerwoods MARANA, Ariz. – At 6:30 a.m., in the cool pre-dawn darkness, a message was sent from Phil Mickelson to Tiger Woods.

With swarms of photographers waiting for the arrival of the world's No. 1 player on Tuesday morning at the range, the first person to arrive was Mickelson's caddie, Jim "Bones" Mackay. He set up Mickelson's clubs and two bags of balls in the middle of the hitting area.

"This is pretty interesting," he said, gazing at the members of the media.

Mickelson walked through the crowd as daylight was starting to break over the hills. He immediately started to get loose by swinging his pitching wedge and hitting some half-swing shots.

A few minutes later, the clicks and murmurs began about 40 feet behind him. Woods had arrived. Mickelson never looked back to acknowledge Tiger's entrance, and Woods didn't walk over to say hello to Mickelson.

About a minute later, Butch Harmon hustled through the crowd and took up a position behind Mickelson.

Fifteen minutes later, as Tiger walked with caddie Steve Williams to the first tee to begin his practice round, Phil had sent his message — everyone's following you, Tiger, but I'm here and working just as hard as you are.

Watch the scene unfold in this quick video shot as Tiger arrived at the range.

Butch says Tiger risked legacy by playing US Open

Posted at 11:21 AM by Mike Walker

Ex-coach Butch Harmon said Tiger Woods took a huge risk by playing the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines last June on his injured knee, according to an interview published in The Bangkok Post. Despite Woods’ imminent return to the PGA Tour, Harmon said Woods’ goal of surpassing Jack Nickalus’ record of 18 major wins will be in jeopardy if Woods doesn’t make a full recovery. (Woods has won 14 major championships.)

Harmon, who was fired by Woods in 2002 after coaching Tiger for 10 years, said Woods took a huge risk in playing through the pain barrier last June, undergoing knee surgery a week later, although he expected his former pupil to make a full recovery.

"We hope that what he did by playing at the US Open with a broken bone and a problem with the cartilage in his knee, we hope that doesn't take away his chances to win it (the record), but we don't know," Harmon said in an interview.

"We'll have to wait and see. It's either the most phenomenal feat ever in the game of golf or not a very smart thing if he played and he doesn't come back healthy," he added.

"I'm of the belief that he's going to be fine, he's going to be stronger than ever. The game needs him back and we all want to see him back."

Harmon also said Woods would probably have to change his swing in the future to relieve pressure on his left knee. Still, Harmon wouldn’t bet against his old boss.

"I would think so [that Woods would make a swing change], to be honest with you. It's the fourth operation on the same knee and this is the most extensive that they had to do," he said. "But then again he's Tiger Woods—he's the greatest player that's ever walked on this planet."

Butch, others chime in on Stevie's comments about Phil

Posted at 11:29 AM by Mike Walker

The fallout from Steve Williams's comments about Phil Mickelson probably won’t subside until Tiger Woods answers reporters' questions at his Chevron World Challenge on Wednesday. It will likely go something like this: “I’m disappointed, it’s been dealt with, I respect Phil, Stevie is my caddie, next question. I said, next question.”

But if Woods doesn’t want to talk about Stevie-gate, he’s pretty much the only one. Most prominent of the many commentators taking Williams to task is Woods’s former coach Butch Harmon. Now working with Mickelson, Harmon said he was shocked to hear what Williams said about Mickelson.

"I can't believe he said what he said. I think it's deplorable he would say something like that," said Harmon, adding that he was "extremely upset."

"Golf is a game of honor and integrity and that was a very uncalled for remark. I don't think it's any reflection of what Tiger thinks of Phil Mickelson."

Harmon added that Williams would likely get a personal reprimand from Woods.

"I would have loved to have heard a recording of the conversation between (Williams) and Tiger. I worked with Tiger for 10 years and I can tell you he wouldn't have been very happy with that."

Lawrence Donegan, The Guardian (UK) reporter who got Williams to confirm an initial report of his comments about Mickelson at a New Zealand charity event, asks what would have happened if another player's caddie had badmouthed Woods in the same way. The answer, Donegan writes, is obvious:

What we do know, however, is that when the world No. 1 returns after injury sometime in the new year Williams will be at his side, as ever. No doubt some will find this to be a commendable act of loyalty on Woods' part but in truth it will be the ultimate act of contempt for a fellow professional, Mickelson.

If that sounds too apocalyptic, then ask yourself this: what would have happened if Mickelson's caddie, or any caddie working for a leading professional, had publicly insulted Woods in the same manner? The answer, of course, is the caddie would have been fired on the spot.

The Canadian Press somehow finds a way to relate all this to hockey, pointing out a double standard in sports where Dallas Stars left winger Sean Avery is suspended for politically incorrect remarks while Williams is left free to speak his mind. (The writer, Tim Dahlberg, favors sanctions over free speech.)

Hockey, which tolerates muggings on a nightly basis and has never felt the need to be politically correct, was so offended by a few words that Avery was sent packing after playing only 23 games of what was supposed to be a four-year stint with the Dallas Stars. When last heard from, he was at an undisclosed location undergoing treatment for anger management issues.

Golf, which regards itself as the ultimate gentleman's sport, has apparently left it up to Tiger Woods to decide the fate of his caddie. That's perhaps appropriate because Woods yields far more power in the sport than PGA commissioner Tim Finchem.

But let’s give the last word (for now) to Steve Elling of cbssports.com, who looks at friendly Mickelson and his caddie Bones Mackay and then at the standoffish Woods and Williams and wonders if caddies and players start to resemble each other the way dogs and their owners do.

It never dawned on me until this serve-and-volley exchange began how much the respective caddies and players are alike. Mickelson and Mackay are approachable, if not even affable, often handing out autographs and goodies to fans for hours. Meanwhile, Woods and Williams are there to kick ass and take down names, not write the latter on pieces of memorabilia for eBay hawkers.

It's sorta like the old saw about dog owners. Fat guys buy jowly bulldogs and high-maintenance rich chicks buy poodles. You know, because dogs often mirror the personality and appearance of the owner.

Els looks to next major after Open woes

Posted at 10:52 AM by Eamon Lynch

SOUTHPORT, England — As he stood by the 18th green at Royal Birkdale on Sunday, Ernie Els admitted that he lost any chance of winning a second British Open title three days earlier, on Thursday afternoon.

That was when the 2002 Open champion covered the last nine holes of the first round in an abysmal 45 strokes for a round of 80, his worst ever score in his favorite major championship.

"I played myself out of the tournament, going nine over in nine holes," Els said. "How do you come back from that?"

You don't. But Els gave a good account of himself nonetheless. It's a testament to the South African's resilience that he might still find himself inside the top ten by day's end. On Sunday Els shot a one-under-par 69, the second time he has broken par in brutal winds since his horrific first round. He made two birdies against just one bogey to finish at 12 over, good enough to tie for seventh.

"At least I managed to break par twice. I can look forward to the next major," Els said. "I'm doing quite a few things right. It was just a battle out there. It's been a tough week but at least I gave it my best shot."

Els will go to Las Vegas to work with coach Butch Harmon in advance of next month's PGA Championship at Oakland Hills near Detroit, an event he has never won. "I've got one major left and I'm going to work my tail off," Els said. "I'll go and see Butch this week and sort out all the doubts I have in my technique. Then hopefully I'll be able to really compete."

"I'll get ready for the next one," he added. "It's a good thing it's in two weeks time."

Angry Els Rues Missed Chance at Open

Posted at 8:39 AM by Eamon Lynch

Elssatam_600x400 SOUTHPORT, England—This Open Championship has turned into Groundhog Day for Ernie Els—different day, same story. Saturday marked the third straight day that the South African has walked off the 18th green at Royal Birkdale with his frustrations boiling over.

On Thursday he signed for an opening round of 80, his worst ever in the British Open. Yesterday he bogeyed the last to fall to 9-over-par for the week, causing him to angrily slam his putter into his bag and also slam the door of the scorer's hut. Today Els signed for a round of 74 and admitted that his chances of winning a second Open crown had been all but blown away in the strong winds.

"I said this morning if I could break par or stay where I was I would be maybe four off [the lead]," Els said. "I think if you're four, five, six over you still have a chance to win."

Finishing two hours before the leaders teed off, Els stood a seemingly insurmountable 14 strokes off the lead held by K.J. Choi.

The 2002 Open winner blamed his woes this week on a sloppy short game and announced that he's heading to Las Vegas to work with coach Butch Harmon. "It's been a frustrating week on the greens, and when you're not making putts it's more frustrating. There's been a lot of missed opportunities, a lot of missed putts," he said.

"I'm going to see [Harmon] for two days in Vegas and work on the short game and get it sharp. I think I'll start scoring then as it's been a tough year up to now."

Since winning the Honda Classic in March, Els has posted just two top-10 finishes, a T-6 at the Players Championship and a T-9 at last week's Barclay's Scottish Open.
