It may be that I don't understand the nature of ADD, but this doesn't sound to me like an attention "deficit," but rather, the ability to focus
concentration precisely where it needs to be, to keep it there for as
long as it needs to be, and to refocus it elsewhere when necessary,
all of which would seem to be to be the exact opposite of what I
thought ADD was...?

Stewart believed that ADD was a blessing in two ways. First it helped
him focus tremendous energy on concentration in key moments of a round:
setting up for a shot, reading a putt or making a critical decision that
could win or lose a tournament. The second blessing was that once the
moment passed, he felt free to allow his mind to wander away from the
game so that he wouldn't worry himself into making a silly error by
over-analyzing the game, the course, the conditions, or the competition.
He could enjoy banter with his caddy, a joke with a playing partner, the
question of a reporter, or the well-wishes of fans without feeling
guilty for neglecting his "job" of the match at hand.
