The answer is: Yes. But it depends…
After reading Steve Helling’s book called “Tiger” it’s now obvious that what brought Tiger out of his past slumps was a meaningful relationship with a beautiful well-educated statuesque blond, someone he admired and would even consider marrying. In other words, a “significant other.”

There is no question that when athletes are happy and their lives are in harmony they will perform close to their skill levels on a consistent basis. In 1999, after a two year slump, Tiger met Joanna Jagoda, a pretty blond co-ed at Cal-Santa Barbara who was not only beautiful but also intelligent and ambitious with an intent on attending law school. As soon as they began dating (including her taking trips with Tiger to tournaments around the globe) Tiger returned to dominance and as Helling points out in his book, “beginning a three year winning streak that would cement his spot as one of golf’s best players.” But in 2001, his relationship with Joanna began to fade (along with caddie problems he was experiencing) and his game suffered. And it was then that he met Elin Nordegren, another highly intelligent, beautiful, statuesque blond. In 2003, he ended his relationship with Joanna and began dating Elin exclusively and suddenly, his game returned to the Tiger of old.

Since his divorce, it’s unknown if Tiger has had a new “significant other” in his life but it’s been rumored that he’s been dating another statuesque blond whose name is Lindsey Vonn,  an Olympic Skier. If this rumor is true, then during the 2013 golf season we should be seeing a new, improved Tiger Woods.  But only time will tell.  Postscript: In today’s news we learned that Lindsey Vonn tore two knee ligaments in a tumbling crash during the Alpine World Championships in Austria and will require reconstructive surgery.  Let’s hope she gets well soon and that her new relationship with Tiger (if true) hasn’t affected her ability to focus.
