Former world No. 1 Greg Norman said Tiger Woods has too many distractions to win another major, golf.com reported Wednesday.
Woods has not won a tournament since November 2009, when details began to emerge of his multiple infidelities that eventually ended his marriage with former Swedish model Elin Nordegren.
Norman, a two-time British Open champion, said Woods’ approach to the game was far different now than when he won 14 majors in 11 years.
"Tiger, when he dominated, had a single-shot approach. It was only about the golf," Norman said in an interview to be published in the November issue of Golf Magazine.
"Now there are so many distractions, and people are looking for things that are wrong with Tiger, so he’s got to deal with that on a day-to-day basis, like every other mortal has to do.
"In our lives, in our business, we all have to be responsible for our actions. It’s very hard for him to have that focus. And the more he shuts people off, the worse it gets."
Jack Nicklaus said recently he still believed Woods could overtake his record of 18 major titles, but Norman said Woods’ body language suggested otherwise.
"He doesn’t keep his head up anymore, he’s got his eyes down, he’s trying to keep his eyes away from the camera," Norman said.
The Florida-based Australian added he would like to talk to Woods personally about his issues.
"I’d love to talk to Tiger about it, guy to guy," Norman said. "The president of the United States [Bill Clinton], when he came to my house, wanted to talk to me guy to guy. We all put our underpants on the same way, one leg at a time. So we sit down and have a chat until two o’clock in the morning."
