Tiger Woods Struggling without Butch Harmon?

Tiger Woods Struggling without Butch Harmon?

As discussed in a Chicago Tribune article by Ed Sherman, Tiger Woods split from his longtime 10-year coach Butch Harmon in 2003 and he has been struggling with his winning golf game ever since.

It is reminiscent of Boris Becker's split with his tennis coaches, which ultimately led to Becker's loss of tennis world dominance.

Not only has Woods - for him - been ineffective in the only parameter that counts - winning tournaments - but the competition has been getting better due to standards of excellence that Woods himself has set in his short but already illustrious golf career.

Will Tiger continue to win the big ones in coming years without Harmon? Perhaps. Will he continue to dominate the game? That is doubtful.

Golf and Investing

Ameritrade and TaylorMade Golf have teamed up on an innovative marketing idea, combining investment and golf. A $5000 deposit will get the investor a Rossa Monza Putter and a $25000 depositor becomes the proud owner of a TaylorMade® R500XD Series Driver.

It would be interesting for someone to do a study on whether there is a successful correlation between good golf play and sound investing.
