But damn, he's "close".  Just a few tweaks here and there.
Actually I like Buck.  He has just the right amount of respect, but at the same time doesn't put golf on some sort of bullshit pedestal.  Norman on the other hand sounds like a Neanderthal at this point., and is providing no additional insight.  Pavin is decent and has potential, however Weiskopf has to go.  He's out of touch with today's game, and like Norman, isn't providing anything of value.  And I grew up watching Nicklaus, Trevino, Weiskopf, so this is hard for me to...
 Just be honest (with himself) and say he's struggling.  It's obvious even to the most casual observer.  Nothing wrong with that.  Saying "you're close" is just sad.
I can't help but think that Tiger has sabotaged his own career at this point.  I get that he wants to improve his game, but completely re-vamping his swing AGAIN?  Watching his news conference was truly sad.  He's starting to believe his own hyperbole at this point, and I'm one of his biggest fans.  No Tiger, you're NOT close to putting it all together.  I'd rather see him retire at this point knowing that his 14 majors will stand for at least another 20 years or...
Actually, it was Peter Kostis (or maybe Butch Harmon) that said recently some of his current students (PGA tour players) can't get the persimmons off the ground.  'Nuff said.   Dale
It appears that the team meeting on Saturday night was a cluster; if you believe what's coming out now.  If in fact Mr. Watson was as disrespectful as it appears then it's no wonder the team collapsed on Sunday.  However, Phil was STILL out of line in making his comments at the press conference.  He should have had a private conversation with Tom Watson before the press conference.   Dale
I'm hesitant to reply the OP because I think he's trolling, but I feel compelled to reply anyway.   There's no question that the golfers of today are a different breed from those 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 years ago.  However, if you gave the golfers of today balata balls and persimmon drivers, they'd be hard-pressed to break 80.  Fact.  That's called leveling the playing field.  Obviously, Ben Hogan can't play today with new technology, but today's players could in fact attempt...
Given that the American women got their asses handed to them in the Solheim Cup, I'd like to propose the women's equivalent of the President's Cup: the Commander's Cup.  Seriously.  Let's take the winner of the Solheim Cup and have them play the Asians in the Commander's Cup in alternating years.  Right now, the Asians are dominating the LPGA, but the Europeans are a formidable opponent when it comes to team match play.  Sadly, I don't see the American's winning another...
Having walked with a LPGA pro-am group, I can tell you first hand that the scratch golfer got creamed.  Here's a summary of what happened:   - The scratch golfer consistently out-drove the LPGA pro by an average of about 10 yards (sometimes more, sometimes less). - However, (and this is big), the LPGA  pro played from the fairway FAR more often than the scratch golfer.  Even though the LPGA courses are short (in comparison), the scratch golfer didn't have nearly...
It was an interesting article, but like others have said, Tiger will surpass Snead without the help.  Also, touring pros played a LOT more tournaments back then, so the opportunity to win was greater than today.  Can you imagine today's pros even attempting to play the type of schedule that they did back in the day?  And having to drive to each tournament, instead of fly?  Yeah, I can see it now:  Ah...Phil, here's your station wagon for the next 6 months.  Make sure you...
