Geoff Ogilvy’s 2014

Geoff Ogilvy’s 2014

2014 has not been kind at all with Geoff Ogilvy as his winless streak just grew and grew, his world ranking was descending constantly and his will was slowly withering away. He also failed to qualify for the U. S. Open and two other competitions dear to him: the British Open and the Masters. At this point in time a question came to Ogilvy’s mind: should I just quit?

Ogilvy was 37 in 2014 when he starting asking himself if he should just walk away from professional golf. He stated that he wasn’t enjoying himself on the field anymore and that was a strange thought for him seeing how he’d done it his entire life.

He also said that he was that the thought of being away from his family constantly was weighing on his mind and that it wasn’t a financial issue anymore, having enough money to retire to a more stay at home type of life.

However after he took a month to clear his head in 2014 he decided to return to the field and he did so with renewed energy. Winning the Barracuda Championship and coming second at the Deutsche Bank Championship turned his entire game around. These feats and others that came after assured his place at the Masters in 2015.

After rising from his streak of unfortunate experiences Ogilvy stated that he always knew his game would turn around and that he is very happy to be in shape again and be able to put together his own schedule for 2015.
