I read a new bit from PGA Aus this morn and something annoyed me in it. Yes maybe should be in that other thread but thought a discussion about what it takes to become a World #1 would be more appropriate.
Tiger and Greg both were top of the game for a very long period, Tiger of course way more than Greg.
Tiger moved to playing less events each year and focused on always winning each event he played or why else play?
This blurb out of PGA story:
"John Senden and Adam Scott were the two to join Leishman on Sunday, Senden finishing 9-under for the week and T42 and Scott 7-under and T56.
It was a case of two steps forward and one back most of the week for Scott who played some quality golf in his first outing of the year but mixed it with some less than impressive play as well.
The former World Number 1 admitted he had done little in the way of practise over the Christmas break but will be pleased enough with his game overall."
So why did Adam Scott even play if he didnt go to win? Somebody else could have taken the spot that was more hungry to play!
Yes it was the "beginning" of the season but why not prepare?
Scott more or less fell into the World Top spot and of course now slowly slipping down.
This isnt a Scott bash - just got me thinking about what can other players learn about winning and winning a lot.
On minimum - get mentally ready to win.
