If it seems like Tiger Woods is having less fun on the golf course, well, Hunter Mahan agrees. He confessed those feelings to Reuters Thursday over the phone.
“From a fan’s perspective, I just don’t see him enjoying the game as much as he used to,” Mahan said. “I don’t know why. Technically, it’s definitely not there for him after six, seven or eight months of (Chris) Como.”
The six-time Tour winner said he hasn’t watched much of Woods this year but has tuned in “a little bit” because he’s confused at how a “player of his caliber is struggling so much.”
This comes less than a week after Woods compiled a four-round total of 302, the highest of his career, at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio. His next event will be the U.S. Open next weekend at Chambers Bay in University Place, Washington.
