"I see it in his eyes...because that's where I've been."

Pretty powerful comments from Sean O'Hair today at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, talking about Tiger Woods as someone who has gotten lost searching for a game.

Brian Wacker
at PGATour.com with the quotes and O'Hair's story, which is on a upswing after his playoff appearance at last week's Valspar Championship.

"I just think that he's lost and the only reason why I say that is because I see it in his eyes and I see it in how he's walking and I see it in how he's playing because that's where I've been. I've been living it."

After turning pro out of high school, O'Hair didn't make it through his first five attempts at PGA TOUR q-school. He had also become estranged from his father during the process.

Then in 2005, his rookie year on TOUR, he won the John Deere Classic and by the spring of the following year was the youngest player in the top 50 in the Official World Golf Rankings.

While O'Hair never reached Tiger's level, the depths he hit after getting too technical at least suggest there is a path to saying sayonara to the demons.

Playing the Masters isn't one of them.
