It’s been three days since the all-star golfer and his Olympian GF, Lindsey Vonn split.
On Tuesday, the professional athlete revealed it’s been hard to concentrate since breaking up with his lady love of three years. It doesn’t help that he also has the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass this week to prepare for.
“Obviously it does affect me. It is tough. There’s no doubt. I’m not going to lie about that. It is tough.
And on top of that, this time of year is really, really hard on me. This three-day window is really hard. I haven’t slept. These three days, May 3rd and through the 5th, today is just brutal on me, and then obviously with what happened on Sunday, it just adds to it.”
Break-ups always suck. However, when they land on the nine-year-anniversary of your father’s death — brutal.
Regardless, Tiger is a professional and can compartmentalize with the best of them!
“That’s kind of always how it’s been. I’ve always had to deal with circumstances on both, deal with stuff outside the ropes, and once you’re inside the ropes it’s time to tee it up and time to play.”
Apparently, the father of two is all geared up to win his tournament — but we just hope he takes the proper time he needs to mourn his relationship.
Go get ├óΓé¼╦£em, Tiger! There are plenty of other fish in the sea!
