Azinger also said Woods looked lost at Augusta.
Paul Azinger, the former Ryder Cup captain who has always been positive on Tiger Woods, came down on him hard on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Radio channel Monday, ripping into club-kicking snit at the Masters.
“Tiger’s antics this week were an embarrassment to the game, to the membership at Augusta,” Zinger said. “I was really disappointed to see him carry on that way. He’s not trying to endear himself to anybody. And after he won Bay Hill I thought, ‘here we go again, this is going to be Tiger just kicking butt and taking names.’ I don’t know. I thought he acted like the south end of a northbound mule.”
As for Woods’ golf, Azinger said, “I think his brain is full of swing thoughts, not swing feelings.
“He thinks he needs to know it all so he can fix what’s wrong, but that’s not what happened here,” he went on. “When it started to go off he didn’t have a go-to shot, there was nothing he could do. I can’t compare my career to Tiger Woods’ career for sure, but I’ll say this, in the 28 years I’ve played golf for a living I’ve never been as lost as he looked out there.”
