Tiger Woods


Queen’s University professor and sports psychologist Dany MacDonald is available to talk about the pressure Tiger Woods will face at The Masters next week.

“Tiger Woods, the world’s most famous athlete, is making his comeback at the world’s most famous golf tournament. He will be under intense media scrutiny. But Tiger has shown he can mentally cope with stressful situations both on and off the golf course,” says Professor MacDonald. “Most golf fans don’t care about his personal life. There will be a lot of questions from media but once Tiger is on the course, it will be business as usual.”

Professor MacDonald teaches at the Queen’s School of Kinesiology and Health Studies and does sports psychology work with golfers. He is also an avid golf fan who is familiar with the traditions of The Masters and the recent troubles of Tiger Woods.
