    Yeah, but it sounds like he's saying that because it's whats expected of him. It's too early for a 19 year old to be desiring a "normal" life of obscurity. Hopefully the challenge of tour competition motivates and drives him to continue to improve.

    That being said, there's no doubt he has the game, but Tiger's drive, passion, and competitiveness were 2nd to none!

    Alex I watched a YouTube on him last night. I was very impressed to say the least. Now he will be fun to watch on tour.

    i can tell you that his drive to be number 1 is all of his own choosing and motivation. he's got no one pulling strings or telling him how to do this. His expectations are his own desire, no one elses.
