It’s no wonder Rory can’t seem to get it together on the course. His personal life is a mess. In the on-again, off-again relationship with Caroline Wozniacki, Rory has seemingly broken off the engagement even as invites to the wedding were in the mail. Story here.
I think perhaps more than any other, golf is a mental game. With the right mental processes, an average player can become very good, and a very good player, great. Conversely, an all-time great can suddenly become ordinary when the mental game falters.
I feel sorry for Rory. He seems like a nice guy, but I wonder if it all wasn’t too much, too fast.
