Outspoken golf legend Gary Player recently said that if he could spend just an hour with Tiger Woods, the golf world would be different. “I would love to sit down with him for one hour and give him a piece of my knowledge,” Player said. “Then I think he could win majors.” Player did not say how the hour would be spent, but he did say some of the talk would be about Woods’ golf swing.
Gary Player is obviously enormously confident in his ability to communicate. Not only does he need just the hour, but remember he said talk to Tiger “sitting down.” Hard to demonstrate hip turn and pronation without getting out of your chair! In today’s world, where everything is measurable, that confidence has a price. When Woods was at his best, he won at an unheard of 33% rate–basically taking home the trophy in one out of every three tournaments he started. There are about 45 official PGA events each year–the winners will take home nearly $60 million. If Player’s hour got Woods back to that 33% win percentage for even just a season, it’d be advice worth $20 million an hour.
