Ladies: don’t let sexism (or anything else) keep you off the course!

Tiger’s Dominance Is All About His Mental Game

Yes, it’s another post about Tiger Woods. I’m just so in awe. I have always enjoyed rooting for underdogs when I don’t have a favorite player or team to support in any given contest.
