ATLANTA – The impromptu lesson is as old as the game itself, but when “the best clutch putter of all time” offers some putting tips, you listen.
So it went that Sean O’Hair got a Putting 101 lesson from Tiger Woods during the duo’s practice round on Wednesday at East Lake. And if Woods ever wants to stop making history he seems to have a future in teaching. One day after the tip, O’Hair grabbed the lead at the Tour Championship.
“We all know how great of a player he is, but I think the thing that impresses me more is the quality of guy he is,” O’Hair said. “I mean, I'm his competition, and for him to help me out like he did was very classy.”
As for what pearls of wisdom the world No. 1 offered O’Hair?
“I think it’s a little too complicated for you guys,” O’Hair offered the assembled scribes.
