Tiger Woods comeback


Queen’s University professor and sports psychologist Dany MacDonald is available to talk about the pressure Tiger Woods will face when he makes his comeback at next month’s Masters tournament.

“Tiger Woods has shown over and over again that he can mentally cope with stressful situations and pressure both on and off the golf course. Most golf fans don’t care about his personal life. The fans at the Masters won’t be there to heckle him,” says Professor MacDonald. “There will be a lot of questions off the course from media but once he is on the course, it will be business as usual. When you are Tiger Woods, everything is scrutinized. He is use to this by now.”

Professor MacDonald teaches at the Queen’s School of Kinesiology and Health Students and does sports psychology work with golfers. He is also a golf fan and has been following the Tiger Woods story.
