Hi Ewen, a well worded column as always! Your thoughts on Tiger are spot on, it must be a relatively lonely existence for him in some respects, of course he has himself to blame for that, just goes to show that all that money and fame doesn't necessarily bring happiness. I am gutted for Lee Westwood (again!), he seems like a down to earth guy and tells it how it is in interviews, I think it is no coincidence that he hasn't won a major despite having one of the best long games in the world, his putting buckles under pressure, some of the putts he missed at Augusta were unbelievable and he obviously has problems chipping. It would be a real shame if he never won a major as his career deserves it, I still think he will win one at some point but he needs to see Dave Stockton about his putting I think. As for Bubba his win was well deserved, certainly an interesting character and as a fellow lefty I'm pleased to see him represent us well! He is a maverick player and sees shots no one else can see, Mickelson aside, and I think he could end up a multiple major winner by the end of his career.

Nice epilogue Ewen. I think you are right about Wood's mindset, a worrying quote from him was "I know what to do, but I'm just not doing it". It's reasonable to think that there have been too many coaches, too many conflicting swing thoughts. Worrying time for Westwood and Garcia too. Westwood needs a new putting coach (Paul Hurrion?) and I think if Garcia makes the Ryder Cup team, it will reignite his love for the game.
