I was watching a Jack Nicklaus special on TV the other day. In one of the interviews with Jack, he said something very interesting. When he started hitting winning majors, he said his actual golf game (swing, strategy, etc) didn't change or got better. What changed was his discipline, his focus on the shot. He said that once he learned to control his emotions and not let things bother him (bad shot, noisy crowd, etc), that is when his game improved and elevated to the next level. In my opinion, it's that discipline and focus is what I think seperates the top amateurs from the tour pros... and the tour pros from the major championship winners. All these guys I'm talking about have great swings, they can putt really well, and they all can hit the same type of quality shots... its this discipline that really seperates them. Jack was the best at it bar-none, and it looks like Tiger has mastered this nearly as well.
