    I would class him as one of my sporting hero’s. I basically how to swing by reading his books and watching his videos. That said, he IS a dick. My ex dealt with him when the airline she worked for was a sponsor at the BMW at Wentworth. She claimed he strode round the place like he owned it and was pretty much an arse to everyone he talked to. Just go and rewatch his opening speech during the Ryder Cup when he was Capt. it was all me me me.

    I have to disagree not the impression I get from him at all. I like his commentary and he brings a lot of knowledge of the swing and mechanics that I enjoy. He's also way better than Miller!

    As a commenter, I like him. I don't know him personally, so I can't comment on him that way. I do think he has mellowed a lot now he's out of competition. As for his attitude when competing, there's a lot of professional sports figure who are full Alpha Dog. I think it comes with the territory of being driven to be the absolute best in the world. Is it overarching? Nah. But there's examples of it all over.
