Former Masters champ Mark O'Meara has spoken up on Tiger Woods and how he continues to fall further down as a golfer.
On Friday, Golf Digest shared a report from O'Meara who opened up on how difficult it is to figure out what could possibly be causing Woods to sink so low in his career. He reportedly dropped out of the top 200 in the world after his rough game at the U.S. Open and posted his worst score in a major championship.
"It's so hard to understand and comprehend what has happened to him," O'Meara said. "From what I saw last week...he says he's close. He doesn't look close to me. I think there's just too much going on in his head."
"Especially when he's probably the most gifted athlete who has ever played our sport, to have Butch Harmon or Hank Haney or Sean Foley or [current instructor] Chris Como or Mark O'Meara tell him what to do," the golf champ added. "The time has come for him to just go play golf."
Rumor has it that Woods could be dealing with personal struggles especially since he and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn broke up about a month ago. Woods was also married to Elin Nordegren, which led into a giant scandal. Whatever is happening though, O'Meara made it clear that there is only so much that can be done for Woods.
"I can only push the envelope so far [in reaching out]. You can't help somebody unless they ask," he said. "I love the kid. I love and respect him, and he's made a big difference in my life. I might not have won those majors at 41 without him around. When you play against him, he elevates your game."
