Recommended Reading: Michael Agger on Tiger, Hound Dog on LPGA

Check out Michael Agger's adroit use of ShotLink data to break down what areas of Tiger's game have been holding him back and compare it to the kinds of stats Hound Dog has to engineer to come up with useful measures of ballstriking and putting performance on the LPGA, and you'll see what a great gulf in investment there is between the men's and women's major tours. Among other useful things.

Shot link and all the stats they generate are cool and sometimes a lot of fun - but I still get the impression that Tiger's head and heart aren't in it right now. He can't focus the way we're used to seeing. He was always mentally stronger than anyone else.

What do you think ?

I think that's what Agger ends up suggesting is the cause of Tiger's problems with his short and lag putting.
