I say he wins, then the media switches back to talking about 19 majors every day until Augusta.

I am looking forward to this tourney.

If Tiger really is back in form, it will be fun to watch.

I hope he wins. It's my last chance to win the bet I made.

Then again, the Presidents Cup is also a "PGA Tour sanctioned event." ;-)

The "win" wouldn't count, even though it's a great field.

Wasn't McDowell's win in a playoff? Didn't he make great putts on 18 and then on the first playoff hole, also 18?

Tehnically that is his last two holes, but I wouldn't describe McDowell's win as "making birdies on his last two holes" He made two amazing putts after Tiger hit one stone dead next to the 72nd hole.

That was ice cold! The twisted dagger! They still show that moment of the putt dropping and him fist pumping while shooting Tiger a look on a Golf Channel commercial almost daily.

I looked it up there and saw that Gmac got 50 points last year for winning it. A Major gives you 100...half the points of a major for a field of 18 event which is basically a bit of fun?

Haven't been posting much...been a bit busy (will be adding my .02 in some of the instruction areas soon)...but the "fat leprechaun" comment just made me laugh so hard I had to thank colin007!!!

Dana Dahlquist snapped a pic of Tiger's new bag.  He's got a new deal with Fuse Science, a small, Florida-based nutrition company that focuses on energy and body replenishment products in drop form or lotion that can be rubbed into the skin.

Unbelievable. Pseudo science nonsense. But then again, I still see pros wearing those ridiculus Powerband and TrionZ things.

And....people buy bottled water, so I guess separating fools from their money is a pretty easy thing to do. Just a shame that some golf pros take the money. Who can blame them I guess.

So much for their integrity and "due diligence".

I will honestly say if someone wanted to pay me money to put something on my bag or use it, I would probably do it.  I hope Tiger plays like he did on Sunday of the President's Cup.  Should be interesting to see how he fairs with having to the hit the driver a little more.

    • Bought the wrong flex wedge... should I return?
      I had finally found the last wedge in my tm r9 set (sand wedge, 55 deg) on ebay and payed a pretty decent amount for it ($53) for being a ~4-5 year old club and being used. I'm happy with the condition, but the seller put on the page part of the listing that it was a stiff flex, but on the actual description field section it said regular flex. I took a gamble since I didn't have a lot of time to contact the seller before the auction ended... and lost. I won the auction, but turns out it has the stock shaft KBS satin steel in REGULAR flex  So my question is, seeing as I have a pretty decent swing speed on my irons fitted for stiff steel shafts... should I play with this club?  I think I'm reading that because it's a shorter club that you may be okay with playing different flexes on the shorter wedges, is this true?  My options are to return the club (if they'll accept that... technically it said regular flex in the description elsewhere) and use that money towards getting fitted for one of the independent wedges (cleveland, titleist,etc) or get a new shaft on this one (kind of a waste I would think?).  Side-note I'm actually pretty timid with my sand wedge in my current game. I usually don't attack it as hard as my other clubs above it (AW+). I hit my current SW only about 75 y full shot. My AW is 95y full. But if I ever have an approach shot between 70-80y to the center of the green (which happens frequently now) I will go with my AW, grip down, and take a 3/4 swing that I'm very comfortable with. I have a moderately HIGH ball flight so they land pretty soft. So I can cover my club gap pretty well, and very comfortably. This may not be relevant but I'm shooting solid mid-eighties now and the area I'm losing a CONSIDERABLE amount of strokes every round being in 5-20y chip shots. Let's put it this way, if I could just HIT THE GREEN (anywhere on the green) consistently with these short chips... I could be breaking 80. I'm hitting  around 10/18 GIR usually now with a few nGIR. I tell you this because my SW is not part of my iron set, and has a "crescent" sole that like to dig hard. It has almost zero bounce. This new wedge will at least have some bounce which I'm hoping will help here. Albeit buying clubs doesnt fix games... fixing your swing fixes games  Your input would be greatly appreciated! Before I can even play this club I will need to have it cut down and re-gripped so that why I ask now instead of just playing with it and seeing if it goes okay.  Thanks guys and gals! 
    • Who is going to be the next big name in golf
      Last year at this time I said Ollie S, but that's not looking good right now. Not sure what's happened to him. I think Spieth, Day and Rory are gonna be the Big 3 for a while. But I do think Justin Thomas and Matthew F have some potential to get up there with them. 
    • Joost Luiten
      Joost struggling on the final day,he needs a very strong back nine,still 6 shots off the lead with 8 to play.
    • Standing on Tee Marker for Aiding a Swing
      Speaking in practical terms, would it even be possible to make a swing with your foot on the tee marker without moving it? Most tee markers I've seen aren't heavy and bolted down like a bench or a chair would be. 
    • Lowest score you've seen?
      I've played with guys who shot 67 or 68. I don't know what he shot, but I was playing in the group ahead of Ed Dougherty one day many years ago. He was knocking the flags down all day long. I can't remember how many he stacked inside 10 feet, but it was more than a handful. I remember someone commenting how poor(sarcasticly) one of his shots were that stopped 20 feet from the hole. Most impressive ball striking I've ever seen in person.
