Case in point: At the British Open this summer,Woods played a wicked game of small ball. At his next tournament, the Buick Open, he won with a power game. At his other major-tournament win, the PGA championship, Woods repeatedly relied on his putt to pull out the win.
You can’t call it inconsistency because Woods is consistently good. He simply adjusts to the situation.
“Yes,” he said after the PGA. “With added experience, and understanding how to get myself around a golf course and how to control my emotions and all the different shots I’ve learned since then, yeah, I feel like things are pretty darned good right now.”
