In the past Tiger's mental game has been as strong as anyone and this has always seen him through, I can still remember him winning the US Open at Torrey Pines in 2008 on one leg. I now wonder how strong his mental game is? Does he realise how good everyone else's is now? No longer do the other players fear him now the 'Tiger Factor' has gone and I just wonder if he is kidding himself as to the level he is at compared to everyone else.
On social media I have heard and read about him scoring a 66 playing a worse ball format and a 74 at Augusta in a practice round, but will his game stand up to the test? I sincerely hope he proves me, and probably a lot of other people, wrong and that we get him and Rory neck and neck going into the back 9 on Sunday... what a sight that would be!

grip, posture, ball position and alignment.
I am going to start with the grip as this how a lot of people will start their pre-shot routines off. The grip is very important as it is the only contact we have with the club and can be responsible for changes to the club face aim and the speed we can swing the club. It can hinder swing path, quality of contact and the angle at which we hit the ball.
- Baseball - The index finger of your left hand and the little finger of your right hand touch.
- Interlocking - The little finger of the right hand slots in between the index finger and middle finger of the left hand
- Overlapping - The little finger of the right hand sits in between the index finger and middle finger of your left hand
Have a look at the pictures below to see how the hands should look for the above grips. It is up to you as to which way you have your hands connected as there is no set way that is better than the others. Beginners are often taught the baseball grip for its simplicity, whilst the overlapping might be more suited with people with shorter fingers.
