BUTCH HARMON: “WOODS SUCCEEDED THANKS TO HIS ARROGANCE”

The most prestigious golfer of the world Butch Harmon shared that the utter arrogance has been playing an important part in the Tiger Woods’ golf career success.

“Arrogance is an essential character to maximize and motivate one’s endowed talent, and then help turn one into the greatest. Inside one golfer are different characters, either good or bad ones, and these are greatly disposed when he/she is playing on the course. Tiger is an example. Golfers like him just want harsh competing atmosphere and become the  winner. Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka are similar.”, Butch Harmon said during an intimate talk through Instagram with his son – Claude, who is also a golf coach, on the 26th April.

Woods, at the age of 44, has gained 15 major titles on the collection of 82 PGA Tour cups. 8 first majors of the well-known golfer come during the period he worked with Harmon, from 1993 to 2004. The experienced coach also commented that during 24 previous years of chasing different cups and titles, Woods has always become a different version of his daily person.

Harmon also compared Woods with Jack Nicklaus – this 80-year-old legend has always been unpredictable and knows himself more than anyone else. 

“They eat meals, have fun, chatter with friends just like you. However, when it comes to competing, they must fight over you if you are the opponent. Sometimes, Jack Nicklaus is also one of them. You can not visualize their true colors through their behaviors.” Harmon said.

Woods has soon exposed his arrogance and the habit of “torturing the prey” on the golf course before he becomes the most famous golf star. A remarkable example for this character of Woods is his 6 successive victories in an amateur golfing tournament before becoming a professional one.

WOODS AND MICKELSON ARE UNDER DISCUSSION FOR A LEGENDARY REMATCH

2 prestigious golfers, which are Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, are under discussion to arrange another rematch. The rematch reward is evaluated to be around 9 million USD.

The detailed information about this rematch was unveiled during a Q&A between Phill Mickelson and his fans on Twitter on the 30th of March. An account named Chris Yurko asked: “Dear Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, have two of you ever thought about a rematch with a camera on, then livestream it for worldwide golf fans? We need to watch online sports, especially golf during these days.”

“We’re on our ways.” – Mickelson replied. Another fan tried to figure it out: “Do not tell joke to us, do you?” and Mickelson replied once again: “This is totally not a joke!” 

Before this, Mickelson used to reveal a rematch where there will be other famous sports figures, and two sportsmen which were predicted have been superstar Tom Brady and Peyton Manning of NFL.

Sports and tournaments all over the world have ceased due to Covid-19, and it’s hard to foreseen when they will be continued. If the rematch between Mickelson and Woods will become real the 2nd time, there is high possibility that this event will be held behind the doors. According to The Sun (England), the reward of this 2nd rematch will still be 9 million USD. 

The first rematch between Woods and Mickelson took place on Shadow Creek golf course in Nevada in the 23rd of November, 2018. After 18 holes, the play had been still under an indissoluble situation. The match only came to an end after the 4th round with the victory belonging to Mickelson. He was rewarded a staggering prize of 9 million USD. Besides, all of their betting money on this play, which was around 800.000 USD, was donated to charity fund.
