Tiger's TMS Woes Continue

    At the start of each month I'm entitled to 10 articles to view without paying a subscription fee to the Washington Post, so, lo and behold, look at what popped up when I looked at the main news items this monring:


    This article really chronicles all of Tiger's injuries and setbacks in detail, so much detail in fact that you can't escape the obvious conclusions that Woods is suffering from a long-term case of TMS. You can't help but see how all the structural medical procedures he has undergone have reinforced the notion that he is a "broken man" at 40! Trying to be perfect and good for a long, long time have definitely taken a toll.

    Bet Steve Ozanich has some useful commentary on these developments in Tiger's career.

    Steve Ozanich goes into Tiger's TMS problems in some detail in his TMS autobiography, The Great Pain Deception, but this Washington Post article sure gives a nice one-page summary of Woods' medical problems (all of which, it seems to me, are more mental than physical). Would be handy to draw a two-line chronological graph connecting the onset of Tiger's pain symptoms with events in his personal life.

    And you have to wonder what Tiger himself thinks when he reads Barry Svrluga's conclusion at the end of the WP article?

    "And we might finally be getting to the point with Tiger Woods where the optimism has worn off, and the reality of a man who appears broken both physically and mentally settles in."

    Gets really close to a body-mind diagnosis, doesn't it?
