Tiger Woods‘ son, Charlie, is only 13 years old, but many consider him one of the greatest talents. He is expected to become one of the bigger players. However, it is too early to put pressure on a 13-year-old boy. Tiger Woods explained the ‘mental games’ he plays with him to teach Charlie some things.
“It’s non-stop, non-stop,” said Woods about distracting his son, as quoted by golfmonthly.com. “It’s trying to get him – if I can get into his head, that means someone else can get into his head. It’s going to get to a point where I can’t get into his head, and then no one else can get in there either.
That’s what my dad believed. You’ve got to be willing to take it.” Somewhat more experienced players probably know about the ‘mental games’ that used to be played on golf courses. “Zing [Azinger] can attest to this, he played in an era where certain players, and we’re not going to mention anybody by name, but certain players would do certain things with clubs and shoes and timing and trying to get in your head, the early walk.
That was still prevalent when I came out here, and a lot of these guys don’t know about any of that stuff, but people did it.”
Tiger Woods on his son
Tiger Woods gave his son an important lesson: No one will help you, you have to work hard and fight!
“You got to go earn it. This is not handed to you. And you got to go earn it every day. This is not something that’s given to you. You got to hit those million putts before you become a good putter. You got to hit those shots on the range.
You got to be able to go out there and do it. No one’s going to do it for you. You got to go do it for yourself. Number one, without a doubt, you get out what you put into it. And don’t expect any results if you don’t put any work into it”.
