Super U Podcast | 7 Super Tips with Tiger Woods:
[5:07] Tip #1
“Not scary. No, it’s frustrating sometimes in a sense, you have to explain yourself. When you don’t win. Even some, sometimes people just play, that’s just the way it goes. Or the fact you make mistakes, that’s never been easy, ever, never, ever. That’s never my intent. That’s all I could give. I really didn’t care about Bob being famous. All I cared about is winning golf tournaments and winning major championships. And then and trying to beat these guys out here. That That to me was was my goal.”
[5:51] Tip #2
“I’m certainly not a person who’s gregarious and certainly outgoing, but more reserved than anything? Well, I think life experiences. And I think having two great parents certainly shaped that. Giving me the tools and the confidence and the knowledge to go ahead and do that. And then the guidance. And that’s instrumental. Not everyone has, you know, two great parents.”
[7:30] Tip #3
“It puts things in perspective, you know, real fast, going through watching my dad get sick, and ultimately passing and then the birth of my two kids. It’s, it’s pretty, pretty special to see, you know, my kids light up and see the smile on their faces. I won’t say necessary to shape the talents, I think it provided the environment for them to choose whatever they want to choose and be successful. And it’ll be leaders in their own right. And hopefully, I can do that for our kids.”
[8:20] Tip #4
“One thing my dad always taught me is that if you put a lot of effort into it, you’re going to get results, but you don’t put any effort into it, you’re not going to get any results out of it more probably you don’t deserve any results. So again, I would put into it. And one of the things that my dad always did when I was growing up, it kept competitive and fun and I love to compete. So he kind of just always fed up on that. And my whole goal my entire childhood was to try and beat my dad.”
[10:22] Tip #5
“That’s fine. They can expect all they want, but I’ve always had this one. Bonus to my, to my personality. My expectations are so high, no matter what anybody else expects, this is going to be less than what I expected myself. Yeah, so that’s, that’s a big bonus. And plus, I really don’t give a darn what they think. I love the competition. There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about it. I’m just one of those people as loves to compete, and I didn’t have that. I try and find it someplace else.”
[12:06] Tip #6
“I’m naturally a tactician, that even when I was hitting the ball long and blown over the top of bunkers, that was the strategy. And so I use my mind. And then eventually, the method I used allowed me to master my craft that that part hasn’t, hasn’t left me. I know how to get done. I just need to get into a position to get it done.”
[12:47] Tip #7
“I don’t think we’re necessarily bigger than the sport. I think I just think that we’ve had so much success in the sport. And I think it’s in the way we’ve done it. Whether it through disappears, dominance, or maybe someone may have a more flashy personality, as well as dominating some people or they may do it differently than it was ever seen it done before in the past. And I think that’s where I think people kind of gravitate towards what Messi and Ronaldo are doing now in soccer is just phenomenal but in two different ways. Two different ways of doing it. Right. And then you have Jordan, come in into the league, he did it completely different than anybody else. And then when I came in into golf, I have done differently because no one had ever trained. No one ever lifted weights. No one ever ran run miles to overdo wind sprints. No one ever did any little things in golf, so I did it differently. And I had success doing it differently. And I think that’s what people sometimes see and have gravitated towards.”
