Tiger Woods has Lost his Mojo — It’s Not Just his Back

A day after announcing he won’t return to the PGA Tour until he’s playing well enough to challenge the best players in the world, Tiger Woods traveled to the Colorado Rockies to begin clearing his head in the thin air and cheer on his girlfriend, skier Lindsey Vonn.

On Monday he’ll head to the Medalist Golf Club near his home in Jupiter, Fla., to begin extensive labor on his troubled golf game.

Where Woods really needs to go, Paul Azinger said, is back to his youth.

“I’d like to see Tiger kick the video camera to the curb,” Azinger told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday. “What Tiger has done is sacrifice a winning swing at the altar for a quest for the perfect swing. And a perfect swing doesn’t exist. … Feel is the key here. A great player has to eliminate one side of the course and he’s fighting a two-way miss. He has to feel he won’t hook the ball instead of thinking how not to hook the ball.”

Woods, who is receiving daily therapy on his back, hasn’t been in contention on the PGA Tour in a long time and acknowledged Wednesday that his game needs a lot of work. He hasn’t won since August 2013 and didn’t have one top-10 finish in nine starts last year.

This year he has missed a cut and withdrawn after 11 holes in his only two starts.

One of those starts included an 82 – his highest score as a pro.
