Tiger will definitely play again for the simple reason he does not want to go out the way he is going out. I think he realizes the major record has probably slipped away, but I think he would still like to break Snead's record. It would be a bit of a disappointment if he doesn't get that record. But I'm sure he wants to end his career on a positive note. If he never swings again, I'm not sure I would call that going out on a positive note.
Range practice. A4 to A6 motion work in slow motion.
Then abbreviated swings with a smooth loopy feel. Trying to exaggerate the loop like Furyk, even for just that short half backswing (not much past A2). When hitting balls, I found it difficult to keep the same loopiness. Tendency even for the shortened backswing was STILL to come straight back on the same steep-ish path. I hit remainder of bucket doing slow loopy swings to make contact with ball. Really feeling the steep backswing and shallow downswing.
In the end, I was able to make good contact that way, but never got my backswing much up past parallel. Felt productive though, as I powered through something keeping me from doing the motion with a ball in front of me.
What do you mean the *worst* thing ? lol. I caught my 3 year old eating goldfish he found on the ground at the bottom of a slide on the playground . .today! I made him stop eating those - but I'm not going to let him eat dirty marshmallows just because they're less gross. I know it's not that dirty . . but that was my first reaction when I saw that . .I was like "Don't eat that!"
