Tiger Woods' 'intimidation factor' made competitors crack under pressure - Stephen A. | First Take

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 15 Apr 2019
  • Stephen A. Smith did not expect Tiger Woods to win The 2019 Masters Tournament, but noticed that other golfers cracked under pressure when Tiger was near the top of the leaderboard. Max Kellerman is not surprised by Tiger's win and says he has completed his comeback.

    Intimidation? Fuck off. He won because he out golfed the field. Tiger who hasn't won shit in years comes out and intimidates the top golfers in the world? At the masters? Yeah eat shit you donkey brained cocksuckers at espn.

    Tiger didn't intimidate anyone, Tiger never shot the same shot as the other 4 players who went into the the water. Tiger went over the bunker, a shorter distance. He out smarter them in the 12 th hole. Experience winning 4 Masters and playing there over 20 times...

    Stfu max. Easy for someone who didn't play sports at a high level to say a player is weak if pressure affects them. Nobody is completely above pressure. Pressure in golf is more difficult to handle than in something like basketball or football. There's so much more time in between actions in golf and thus pressure weighs on you more. So fuck off max, you don't know shit

    That’s not true golf will always be “relevant” I watch all sports and I’m a huge fan of all mainstream sports. I’m not a huge soccer fan. But golf and soccer are world wide LEGENDARY sports. No one can top golf and soccer/futball. But in my opinion no sport in the history is as old and is as iconic as golf.
    People that never played the game thinks Tiger has to keep it relevant. No sport in the history is as hard as golf. In golf it’s not about being “big or tall” it’s a grind for 4 days more like 6 or more with practice. It is the most challenging and mentally challenging main stream sport of all time. People don’t know what it takes to hit a shot perfectly on a spot of a professional green to get a chance for a birdie or eagle putt. It’s a grind and a focus unlike anything out there. And there is no one to help you. All by yourself. Your worst enemy in life is yourself. That is the game of golf. Tiger woods has proven to be the greatest player in any sport EVER to do what he has done is the impossible. There will Never be something like this in the history of mainstream sports. This is a once in a billion year moment. I salute to man. No one has doubted anyone more than Tiger. This is a movie in real life. And I will never forget what I’ve seen. Bigger than sports. This is a will of a human that didn’t do it for the world. But for the will of his father. His family. And himself. The greatest of all time.

    Stephen A...you can backpeddle all you want but the viewers know what you said about Tiger. The viewers know that out of your own big mouth,that you said he would never win a major again and was very skeptical that he would even win a PGA tour event again. Tiger checked BOTH of those right off your list. Max Kellerman,you go out there on a Sunday at a major,with Tiger Woods,within 1-2 shots of you,and I GUARANTEE you,you’ll crack under the pressure as well. The mental aspect of golf,which isn’t a team sport but an individual sport,you rely on no one but YOURSELF!! Y’all don’t even need to comment about the sport of golf because you guys have no clue what it entails.

    Golf can be cool to do and fun, but its more of a leisurely past time for old white dudes than it is a "sport". If golf is a sport than pool is also a sport. And throwing frisbee is a sport.

    My 2¢ worth: Watching the final round of The Masters as it went to the back nine it seemed like a pressure cooker out there; the pressure seemed to be crackling through my television screen. And Tiger handled it. And stayed dry on 12.

You deserve to comment anything, you are an embarrassment to the world of sports. Your tone is not apologetic or remorseful in anyway... You justify yourself as if you invented golf! The should fire you effective immediately... to make it worse you are racist... Just go home and become a farmer. We don't need you in the media..

    I’m not buying any of this intimidation crap. Both Koepka and mollinari beat tiger in previous majors down the stretch. So now because tiger wins it’s due to intimidation. It’s total BS. What are you going to say the next time one of these guys wins, they intimidated tiger?

    Stephen A......don't talk like an ASSHOLE. There is no **intimidation factor** with Woods and these new young golfers----who were in grade school when Woods was winning. You think Koepka is intimidated by Tiger ? And how about that new Italian guy....same goes for him. Tiger's going to have to win a few more tournaments before some of these younger guys feel intimidated. Let's just hope that Tiger can stay HEALTHY going forward. And a lot will depend on Tiger's putter----especially from 5 feet. He's terrible on the short putts. Maybe he needs to get his eyes checked for **glasses.**
