The problem for Rory is Caroline probably has a stronger backhand.

Or, it could be that it's difficult to focus on hitting golf balls when you could be at home hitting Caroline Wozniacki.

Not only that, but I'm sure he felt obligated to go off to wherever in the world she was playing instead of practice.

Pretty clear that she was stealing his essence.

Maybe she wouldn't let him play the backside of the course.

If I'm properly reading what you wrote, a round of golf is equivalent to sexing her up 6 times in 4hrs.

Tiger is realizing the consequences of years of over swinging and, probably, juicing. Athletes keeps taking these supplements because they assume, or are being told, that it's not a zero sum equation. There's always a reckoning.

You could figure out who dumped whom based on that first weekend after the split; he won a tourney and she lost in the first round of a major. Tough for her, I'll try and console her. Hell, I hate golf! I'm perfect for her.

Maybe he was scared of the eventual "Pre-nup Powerup" and the beating he would get.

I guess he was too busy balling to focus on his ball.
 
2014-08-13 04:20:22 PM  
Apparently Wozniacki has gotten better since she stopped dating as well.

It's almost like you have to be a soulless automaton who cares only about playing a sport to be one of the best in the world at it. Or you could be a human being.

Yep.  I bet in his time off he is sitting forlornly in his darkened basement, wishing he could just find *one* nice looking woman somewhere who might be willing to help him spend his millions.

Yup. Steroids are like running up your credit card to pay for groceries. Eventually you're going to have to pay it back, and the interest will kill you.

You can give her up when you've got a bevy of options.

There will always be attractive 20-somethings with great bodies. Caroline Wozniacki is an attractive young lady, for certain, but there are and always have been athletic girls that attractive on every major college campus in the US.

The window for a golfer to win major championships, however, is relatively small. Nicklaus won 14 from 62-75, a 13-year window. Tiger won 14 in 11- 97 to 08. Rory's on the clock, and if he's going to try to elevate himself into that pantheon, he needs to strike while the iron's hot.

And when he's done winning all the majors he can, he'll still have time to find somebody to be his new Caroline.
 
2014-08-13 04:52:06 PM  
Everyone is forgetting the most obvious reason here.  That she was most likely a huge pain in the ass and he was sick of her crap.

Being in a relationship takes time, energy and thought. That's time energy and thought that doesn't go toward golf. When you have to be one of the best in the world at something, it's going to require all the time, energy, and thought you have.

For me, I used to run marathons. Now don't get me wrong-- I wasn't very good at it, let alone world class like this guy in golf, but that's even more of a reason that it took all my time to train at the gym and going for runs. When I first started dating my wife she expressed concern that I wouldn't have enough time for her because of all the time I spent on work and my running obsession.  She was the only woman I ever met during that period of my life that made me want to consider choosing spending time with her over running. And I did. The last marathon I ever finished was 10 months after she and I started dating. After that I got through about 20 miles on two others before bailing due to injury / being unprepared from poor training.

I don't regret it one bit. She's an amazing woman. But sometimes choices have to be made. He's far too young and talented to lose focus, and he either figured that out or was told by some who knew.

Why pick up a wife when he can just get on the Dustin Johnson plan and start banging everyone else's.

Well, he was probably gonna do something stupid to reveal the fact that he was boning other women on the side anyway, so...

We've seen a good year from Rory followed by a year where he struggled to make the cut. Let's wait a bit to claim that his dating habits had anything to do with it.

Rory is just as likely to never win in 2015 at all as he is to win a major based on past history.

Didn't David Duval weightlift himself into golf oblivion because of Tiger?

/don't even know where I heard that

"Dating"?  He was engaged.  He's a beer-chugging Irishman.  What he's doing while NOT engaged probably looks more like a touring funk band's hotel room than "dating".
