Tiger Woods appears to have lost a little something since his sex scandal three years ago. One could point to his swing or his confidence, but perhaps Woods is no longer at peace when stepping onto the golf course. Professional golfer and commentator Nick Faldo thinks Woods’ sex scandal did serious damage, and he now has questions about where Woods’ mind is whenever the popular pro tees off. “[The revelations] have done more damage than people would give them credit for,” Faldo said on BBC Radio. “It’s wrecked, that wonderful tranquility you get of going to a golf course, tipping out a bag of balls and hitting them from 9-5 and just thinking of golf. “When you’re a golfer that is great. But now… He has shattered that peace. He won’t get that back. Once you lose that concentration and that ability to become completely engrossed in your golf… then slowly things have changed for him. His swing — physically, technically, mentally, karma — it’s a harder climb right now. Sure, he could come back and do things, but he won’t be dominant like he was.” Faldo thinks Woods — who has 14 career major wins — will have a hard time reaching Jack Nicklaus‘ record of 18 career majors, even if he does remain a good golfer today. Faldo’s comments were the topic of discussion on Tuesday’s Dennis and Callahan. Check out the video above to hear more about the issue.
