What’s the secret to success in the world of professional golf? Practice, focus—and, perhaps, not getting embroiled in an adultery scandal that turns your life upside-down.

Tiger Woods experienced a major stumble on his march down the comeback trail on Thursday, with his disastrous showing at the AT&T National. But don’t worry, he thinks he knows what happened—he was thrown off of his game by the ongoing drama of his impending divorce from Elin Nordegren:

“Outside the ropes there are certainly still distractions. It is what it is. I think everyone has had distractions in their lives [but] I think that my life out here on tour is becoming more normalized.”

Tiger better get his game together soon; with a rumored $750 million divorce settlement looming, he’s going to need all the wins he can score.
