After Tiger Woods shot an 85 in the third round of the 2015 Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village, the naysayers were out in full force!

 “Tiger is finished”  “Tiger needs to pack it in”  Wow, what a lot of bull!  Jack himself has been through slumps like this, and what did he do?  He went back to his original coach Jack Grout and worked on the basic fundamentals of grip, aim, posture, and ball position.  A little work with Phil Rogers on his short game and voila, Jack was back.

He won the US Open a short while later and went on to win another 3 Majors after that!  So why am I posting this article?  Because I think Tiger needs to put his pride in his pocket and go and see Butch.  I think Butch can get him back in about a week.  Come on, Tiger, as your sponsor company, Nike, says, “Just Do It!”   Thanks to this insightful article by Marc Lancaster writing for Sporting News.

Butch Harmon isn’t going to coach Tiger Woods full-time again, but he is willing to help the fallen star if asked.

Harmon told Golf World he wouldn’t rebuff an approach from Woods, his pupil for a decade at the beginning of the golfer’s pro career, but he isn’t sitting around waiting for a call.

“If he wanted, I’d be more than happy to spend a couple hours and give him my opinion,” Harmon said. “I don’t think he would ask because it goes against his pride.”

Woods and Harmon parted ways in 2002, and by most accounts, haven’t looked back.

Talk of a reunion tends to bubble up whenever Woods hits a particularly rough patch — the current one certainly qualifies — but that chatter generally has been quashed in a hurry, often by Harmon.

At 71, he’s still out on Tour working with a variety of players, including Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler, so he’s all too familiar with Woods’ woes. Harmon is especially perplexed by Woods’ short-game trouble
