Re: Rory's golf thread

I wonder whether there is some Northern Irish Golf messageboard out there, where they bitch about Wozniacki ruining Rory´s career. She better not mess up the Ryder Cup.

I doubt it because he's become the number one ranked player since Woz came in his life.

Seriously. I hate these "Blame the woman when an athlete have a rough patch." It's so sexist.

Yeah, but Rory is also blamed for Caro's slump, so it's not one way traffic. I don't see why someone shouldn't have a girlfriend/boyfriend just because he or she happens to be a high profile athlete though. All those other athletes have girlfriends/boyfriends as well. The only difference here is that both parties are celebrities which makes for better copy.

True but most cases I've seen it's more likely for the woman get blamed for the guy's slump than the reverse. I mean in general many people all over the have relationships as well as demanding careers. Blaming the SO for a person's career slump is just a cheap shot.

It's two tournaments Rory has missed the cut. A tad embarrassing for sure, but he's certainly appeared to have benefited from a more disciplined and structured approach to his sport. Which he credits Caroline for having taught him.

But .. two missed cuts in a row and it's all suddenly Caroline's fault (judging from the front page. Couldn't find the article online).

Agree and either way it's all speculation and no-one really knows whether it's affected their respective games. But there is a key difference. With Caro it's been quite some time and most of it with Rory that she's been in a slump. With Rory - it's what? A couple of tournaments? And it ignores the fact that the best he's ever done has been with Caro. So there is a difference speculating Rory a factor in Caro's slump to Caro a factor in this "so-called" Rory slump (which I think is ridiculous right now).

I do wish them every happiness together. But with Caro anyway I do think Rory blunts the pain of losing a bit. And I just wonder....

Re: Rory's golf thread

In tennis, if you had success, there are benefits to falling from the top.
You already have money, so thats not an issue.
But you have more free time when you lose early. Boyfriend (or family members)comforts you. Its easier on your body to play fewer matches.

It takes a lot of mental toughness to be near the top for a long time. Only a few players ever do it.
Caroline fell off last summer, and it looks like its going to be very hard for her to fight for each point the way she use to. Its 9 months without any title, and she used to win almost half her tournaments

Its way she loses, with errors early in points, running around her backhand. She rarely lost matches like that before last fall. I was really impressed with how she hid her weaknesses & played to her strengths. Now, I think she exposes her weaknesses at the big moments

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

Well, sure but we all know that women are evil. As the great Robert Plant said: "The soul of a woman was created below."
