Even though Tiger Woods played his C+ game this weekend at the Bridgestone, he persevered.

Yawn. Another week, another victory…that makes four in a row, doesn't it?

Despite a playoff with rival Stewart Cink (2004 winner) Woods' strong mental game allowed him to stay focused with his "eye on the prize". We are simply amazed by Tiger Woods' ability and discuss his golf tips on "how to master the mind" straight from his book, "Tiger Woods: How I Play Golf".

In my opinion, Bobby Jones comes in a close second. Remember, Jones still remains the only person ever to win the Grand Slam, although many claim that Jack Nicklaus deserves the honor of "greatest golfer of the present day".

In the "Rules of Golf made easy" we discuss the ramifications of hitting the wrong golf ball.

Also, a question for our listeners. How was it decided to make a round of golf eighteen holes? Listen to our podcast to find out!

Finally, congratulations to Lorena Ochoa who celebrates her third win of the season at the Wendy's Championship for Children. At least Morgan Pressel and Cristie Kerr came out of this event with a pair of top-tens!
