The player refuses to be cowed down by these numbers saying that he had the same opportunity as anyone else on the field

"Does it test you? Yes, of course it does, is that any excuse? No, because I'm out there and I have the same opportunity as everybody else here in this field to shoot a good number, and I didn't do that," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

Open champion Stewart Cink said, "He's obviously got things in his mind other than what's going on between the ropes right now.

You've got to balance what's going on in your life with your golf." (ANI)
