Struggling Woods will be fine in the end, says Clarke (Reuters)

By Bernie McGuire DUBAI (Reuters) - People should not read too much into Tiger Woods' disastrous performance at the Phoenix Open, according to his close friend and fellow former British Open champion Darren Clarke. Clarke himself has struggled since winning golf’s oldest Major in 2011 at Royal St. Georges. The 46-year old Northern Irishman, who is widely tipped to become Europe’s next Ryder Cup captain, has not had a top-10 in 55 events on the European Tour since lifting the Claret...

The worst round of Tiger Woods’ professional career was a mild surprise rather than a complete shock to most golf insiders. Woods shot an 11-over-par 82 in the second round at the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Friday, a score that might be stunning to casual observers of the game, but not necessarily to those who have closely observed him.

Woods has particularly struggled with his chipping since switching instructors from Sean Foley to Chris Como in...

"I'm just doing this so I don’t get fined,” he joked to reporters, echoing media-shy Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch, who is playing in the Super Bowl in nearby Glendale on...
