NEW YORK - American golfer Rocco Mediate is all praise for Tiger Woods, who will be paired with him at the Farmers Insurance Open, saying that he is still the best despite what the rankings say.
Mediate, 48, has not played with Woods, 35, since the epic playoff at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, but he expects the latter to be in his same old form when they tee off.
“Because he’s tired. He’s tired of seeing what he’s seeing. He’ll fix it. He’ll definitely fix it. He’s not going away. I still think he’s the best player, I don’t care what the rankings say,” the New York Daily News quoted Mediate as saying.
“He’s had a little bit of an off year. A lot of things happen; we all go through weeks and months and years without ever being able to get it done, even him.
“He’s got to feel that, and I guarantee he doesn’t like it. There’s no way he’ll stay where he is.
“Has he been vulnerable over the last year or so? Yes, we’ve all seen it. Does that mean he’s always going to be that way? Absolutely not. He will evolve and do what he’s got to do to figure it out,” he added. (ANI)
