Great golfers have more grey matter in their brains

Great golfers have more grey matter in their brainsWashington, April 11: Tiger Woods may be having more grey matter in his brain than others that keeps him winning, if the findings of a new study are to be believed.

University of Zurich researchers have found that expert golfers have a higher volume of the grey-coloured, closely packed neuron cell bodies that are known to be involved with muscle control.

The finding attains significance as it suggests that golfers who start young, and commit to years of practice, can also grow their brains while their handicaps shrink.

Tiger Woods may never again dominate golf: Ernie Els

Tiger Woods may never again dominate golf: Ernie ElsLondon, Mar 3 : Ernie Els reckons that Tiger Woods might never again dominate golf as he did before his latest injury.

Woods returned last week after an eight-month lay-off at the Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona.

Tim Clark knocked him out in the second round and Els believes his knee may continue to hamper him.

Former world No. 1 Els underwent similar surgery for a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in 2005, The Sun reported.

Tiger Woods loses to Tim Clark

Tiger Woods loses to Tim ClarkMarana (Arizona, US), Feb. 27 : Golf champion Tiger Woods celebrated comeback from knee surgery after eight months at the Accenture Match Play Championship ended after two rounds Thursday with a 4-and-2 defeat to Tim Clark.

Even one moment of magic - a hole-out from the bunker on the 14th - couldn''t swing the momentum.

Woods made more mistakes down the stretch and couldn''t match the South African''s six birdies in 16 holes.

"I''ve played with Tiger a few times. You either let it get the best of you or you thrive on it," said Clark.

Tiger Woods says its business as usual

Washington, Feb. 26 : Golfing champion Tiger Woods, who spent eight months recovering from knee surgery, has declared it is business as usual.

Woods, up against Australia's Brendan Jones, was playing for the first time since last June when he won the US Open before needing reconstructive knee surgery.

And despite a front-nine wobble that included bogeys at the third, fifth and seventh holes, world No 1 Woods roared to a 3 and 2 victory - thanks in part to an eagle at the par-five 13th.

Woods, 33, said: "I got off to a great start but there were some loose shots that followed in the middle of the round before I got it back on the 13th.

Tiger is back, feeling even stronger

Tiger WoodsLondon, Feb. 25 : After his eight-month lay-off due to a knee surgery, Tiger Woods is back to action and feeling “stronger than ever.”

The 33-year-old golfing superstar will mark his comeback with the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship — his first tournament since winning the US Open last June.

The world No. 1 had reconstructive surgery on a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee days afterwards, The Sun reports.

Woods insists he is back in business as he takes on Australia’s Brendan Jones, the 64th and lowest-ranked player in the field.
