3 years ago, Tiger was clearly better than Jack at the same time in their careers. Now, however, things have changed significantly. Tiger's chart is becoming more and more like Jack's.
Shot an 87 at Spring Lake in Long Island (43/44) on Sunday 7/13/14 with 34 putts
Shot an 88 at the Yellow Course at Beth Page (43/45) on Wednesday 7/16/14 with 35 putts.
Shot a 92 on the Chiau Sih Golf Club in Taiwan with rental clubs that were not well suited to my game. Beautiful views.
I shot a 91 on the Black course at Bethpage on Sunday: 45 and 46. I hit only 2 fairways because of 15-20 mph gusts. I shot about 8 pars. Took several doubles as the morning dew didn't dry out until about 11am, which meant chipping by the greens was like hitting out of peanut butter.
I just found my ball in a divot this weekend. A perfect drive into the middle of the fairway. The ball was just into the divot, which means I couldn't see the lower 1/3 of the back of ball. If it were in it's own pitch mark, I would get relief. Now what sense is that? If someone else causes a hole to be made in the fairway, then I don't get relief, but if I 'caused' the buried ball, then I'm entitled to get relief? It may be that the USGA is living in an ideal world,...
Personally, they can make the rule clear, 'If the ball comes to a stop in the middle of the correct fairway (i.e. not the fairway of the 7th hole when you are playing #8) and the ball is NOT laying on grass that's planted in the ground, the player should be able to drop the ball 1 club length, no closer to the hole.'
While playing at Dyker Beach golf club, I hit a perfect drive at the 14 th tee. When my golf ball was about to land in the fairway left, I saw it take a severe 90 degree turn and it shot into the reeds/bushes to the right. When we approached, a dead raccoon was on the ground where my ball ricochet. The raccoon looked like it was in mid step, with it's right front paw extended...but it was dead. I must've hit it in the head. Tommake matters worse, I was assessed a 1 shot...
