Tiger Woods Blames His Tournament Choke on Personal Drama

Tiger Woods Blames His Tournament Choke on Personal Drama-photo

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.

    Tiger said he is frustrated because his golf game is suffering big time for everything that is happening in his personal life. What I can’t understand is why Tiger continues to play under such emotional stress, or what is he trying to prove? The sensible thing to do in a situation like this is to stop playing until his personal life becomes more stable and he achieves peace within himself. It is truly tragic to see a person like Tiger that achieved so much, to descend so low and lose so much for something so worthless!!!
