今年的Tiger在18場比賽中拿了8個冠軍(其中包括1個大滿貫冠軍)
四個大滿貫賽比賽中...除了拿到PGA錦標賽的冠軍之外...
Master和US OPEN都可惜的只拿到第二名
但是今年是他收穫很多的一年...大部分的的原因是女兒Sam的誕生
在去年失去了他的父親之後...Sam...則是稍稍填補了一點空缺
而Sam也在今年Tiger的最後一場比賽Target World Challenge中公開亮相....
Tiger漂亮的在女兒來看的第一場比賽...獲得冠軍....照片如下

看到了嗎!?一家四口穿著紅色的上衣...連Sam都是.....
因為他們家深信不疑:
在比賽的最後一輪穿上紅色衣服...會帶來好運!
這個習慣從Tiger小時候就一直延續到現在

今年的美巡賽轉播...比起前幾年來...真的是挺少的!
有點獄卒...但好處是少了很多熬夜的星期假日...好吧!算是保養一下身體.....
也只能在報紙新聞和網路中...看到比賽的過程和結果
不過亞巡賽的比賽倒是播了不少...可見台灣的高爾夫球還有很大的發展!

話說回Tiger一如往常的...每隔一到兩個月...就會發表一封公開信...
多半是寫這陣子的比賽經過和心情...期許自己更努力...與家人的互動
或是Tiger Woods Leaning Center的活動...以及不忘了對其他人的感謝
在今年即將進入尾聲的此時...他又發表了這一篇公開信!
這一次我不用翻譯了!哈哈....因為竟然有熱情的記者翻好了...
差不多就那樣.....有興趣的就看看吧

December 20, 2007

By Tiger Woods

I have so much to be thankful for in 2007. Obviously, my wife and new daughter top the list. I had always heard that fatherhood changes your life and perspective, but until you experience it, there's no way to really understand how much. Every day, Sam does something new that brings a smile to my face. I appreciate the little things, like having her watch me hit balls on the back of the driving range or watch sports with me on TV. She's a wonderful, curious little girl, and Elin and I cherish every moment together.

Golf-wise, I've always said if you win a major, it's a great year. Everything else is gravy. Winning the PGA Championship was the highlight, but I played consistently most of the season and am very pleased with my progress. It was also satisfying to win two World Golf Championship events, and of course, the inaugural FedExCup.

The only disappointments were coming up short at the Masters and U.S. Open. I put myself in position both times, but just couldn't get the job done. I'll think about that during the next few weeks and hopefully come back even stronger in 2008.

It was nice to end the year with a W in the Target World Challenge. Coming off a 10-week break, I wasn't sure how sharp I would be, but I putted great and hit big shots when I needed them. I also accomplished it playing the new Nike ONE Platinum ball. More importantly, we were able to raise a lot of money for the Tiger Woods Foundation, which will enable us to help more kids. My thanks to the players, sponsors, staff, volunteers and of course the fans for making the tournament such a big success.

The Tiger Woods Leaning Center in Anaheim, Ca. has exceeded all expectations, and we are making great progress in our Washington, D.C. efforts. We also have some exciting programs I plan to launch in January 08. More on that later.

I would like to thank my good friend Hank Haney for all his help and support this year. Henry dealt with some family issues and I know it wasn't easy. He didn't attend as many events as he usually does, and rightfully so. But he was there when I needed him. All the countless hours we have put in together are paying off. I have a better understanding of my golf swing than ever before and know how to fix most of my faults. When I don't, Henry will continue to be my extra set of eyes.

I will start the 2008 season next month by defending my title at the Buick Invitational. I want to spend as much time as I can during the holidays with family and friends. Although I've never been much of Christmas guy, things are different now that we have Sam. As a kid, my parents used to give me a left shoe for Christmas and a right shoe for my birthday (Dec. 30). Real funny. I'm not a great shopper, but look forward to picking out a few presents for her.

That's all for now. Elin, Sam and I send our best wishes for the holiday season. Have a safe and healthy New Year.

高球》老虎伍茲07年的感恩信:女兒是天上掉下的禮物

更新日期:2007/12/23 18:49 特約記者古奇

PGA官網今21日轉摘自老虎伍茲(Tiger Woods)的個人官網,發布伍茲向2007年的感恩信,現翻譯如下: 

2007年,我有許多要感謝的東西,很明顯名單最頂端是我的太太和新降生的女兒。我總是聽人說為人父母會改變你的人生和心態,可是直到你經歷過了,你才有可能真正理解。每一天,山姆(Sam)總有一樣新東西讓我面泛笑容。我欣賞這些細小的細節,比如說在練習場的後邊她看著我擊球,又或者與我一起看電視上的體育節目。她是一個奇妙的,好奇的小姑娘。埃琳(Elin)和我珍惜在一起的每一分每一秒。

 從高爾夫的角度來說,我總是說如果你贏得1場大滿貫賽,那便是偉大的一年。其他東西只是調味的。贏得美國PGA錦標賽是這一年的最高點,可是我整個賽季打得都很穩定,非常滿意自己的進展情況。我同樣很滿意贏得了兩場世界高爾夫錦標賽,當然還有首屆聯邦杯。

 唯一失望的地方是美國名人賽和美國公開賽我差一點,沒能成功。我兩次都將自己放在奪冠位置上,可是都沒能有始有終。我未來幾周會好好反思的,希望2008年我重新出山的時候能更強。

 十分高興終結這一年的時候,能在Target世界挑戰賽上拿到1個「W(勝利)」。經過10周的休假,我不確定自己能有多敏銳,可是我推桿推得非常棒,在有需要的時候打出了重要的1桿。更為重要的時候,我們能夠為老虎伍茲基金會籌集到一大筆錢,這讓我們可以幫助更多孩子。我需要謝謝球員、贊助商、工作人員、義工,當然還有那些球迷,是你們讓這場比賽取得了巨大成功。

 老虎伍茲學習中心超過了所有預期,另外我們在華盛頓取得了重大進展。我們也有一些激動人心的專案,我計劃在2008年元月推出。隨後會有更多。

 我需要感謝我的好朋友漢克.漢尼(Hank Haney),感謝今年他的幫助和支援。漢尼需要處理一些家庭問題,我知道那不容易。他並沒有像以往那樣頻繁地出現在我參加的比賽中。可是當我需要的時候他總在那裡。我們在一起合作的無數個小時終於結開花結果。我理解揮桿比起以前來更為透徹了,我出現的大部分毛病都知道如何修整。當我做不到的時候,漢尼會繼續做我的那雙額外的眼睛。

我會在下個月開始2008賽季,屆時我將衛冕別克邀請賽。我希望在假期中能盡可能與親人和朋友共享天倫。雖然我從來對耶誕節不是那麼熱中,可是現在有了山姆,情況不一樣了。還是孩子的時候,父母曾經送給我左腳的鞋子當耶誕節禮物,送給右腳的鞋子當生日禮物(12月30日)。真的很有趣。我不是一個瘋狂的購物迷,可是我會為女兒挑選一些禮物的。 

現在就說這麼多。埃琳、山姆和我送上對節日最誠摯的祝願。希望大家過一個安全、健康的新年。
