2010 Chevron World Challenge - Page 11

Re: 2010 Chevron World Challenge

That was a good finish! I've never been a Tiger fan. I respect his insane talent, but that's where it stops. That being said, it's always better to watch when he's in the hunt. 2011 should be a great year for the tour.

Re: 2010 Chevron World Challenge

It was great to see someone rise to the challenge and not fold under the pressure. GMac is for real...I really thought he was making a huge mistake on the par three, but somehow he got up and down. I had a feeling when he hit that last putt on 18 that it was in the hole. It makes for great golf lore when you hear of these kind of epic battles. It takes nothing from Tiger...remember how many times Nicklaus finished second.

Just came back from the event. The last hole was very exciting. Will never forget that putt by GMac.

Re: 2010 Chevron World Challenge

The positive thing I got from watching this match was the way Tiger handled himself in defeat. For once, he did not behave like a spoiled child. He accepted the loss with grace and dignity. Perhaps he is maturing.

Re: 2010 Chevron World Challenge

What a great tournament, looking forwad to 2011. Tiger got a little 'loose' in the middle, that double-bogey 7 on the par-5 13th was just plain stupid. But, he rebounded well and hit some really solid shots down the stretch. I told my wife that G-Mac was 'gritty' just before he got up-and-down on 17 and told her I bet he'd make those putts on 18, too. He was clutch!

I think the loss was 'good' for Tiger, he got a taste of being in the hunt again, realized that he can hit the shots with his new swing, and it should fuel his practice during the off-season. I think he'll work even harder since he lost bue he saw that the swing improvements are working.

Re: 2010 Chevron World Challenge

What a finish. I haven't been that tuned into a tournament for a few months now. Graeme's up and down bogey-save on 17 was one of the best of the year. He got a couple fortunate hops on other tee shots, but the putter was lights out. I still can't believe he made the 2nd putt.

Tiger played well in spurts but broke down a little bit in his swing late in the tournament. Then he made one of the only clutch shots he has made all season, and it was a beauty. But Graeme was having none of that!

The Tour may be back, gentlemen.

I'm glad Graeme will be playing on the PGA tour. Hopefully more duels to come next year.

Good year for GMac, 2 European Tour wins, 1 major, and the Chevron obviously. More to see in 2011?

Haven't seen tiger have a meltdown on a sunday like that in ages apart from the 2009 PGA championship.

Nice one Gmac.

Re: 2010 Chevron World Challenge

I love how how Graeme threw Tiger a "Nice shot mate." after Tiger hit that sick approack on the last regulation hole. Really classy.

I wanted tiger to win though, and then watch all the credit go to Sean Foley and Nike Methods.

I know, he missed many putts he shouldn't have. But it's the putter that would have been in his hands in every picture of him when he rolled the final put for the win and the subsequent fist pumps.

Yeah, he really faltered down the stretch, sticking it to 18 inches on the last.

He lost his swing in the middle of the round and had two three-putts early. You must have a different version of the word "meltdown."

BTW, the odds of McDowell making both of the putts he made on 18 are roughly 1 in 40. Throw in the up and down on 17 and the odds go to 1 in 400.

Re: 2010 Chevron World Challenge

was neat to see Tiger play well again
i dont care what others think, he is one of the best in the game and to hit it close like that on 18 to possibly win....simply incredible

NOW...that being said......

im pumped G-MAc won (was rooting for him the whole time ;) )
regardless of the odds, dude has mad skills and i respect the crap outta him abd his game
to be able to make back to back clutch putts to win over Tiger Woods has to be the greatest feeling inthe entire world - more than the US open or Ryder Cup
HE BEAT THE BEST in his backyard - kudos to you Gmac...i mean G MONEY (cause those putts were money!)

Not sure about that bit I bolded. He seemed to enjoy those other big wins too. He's definitely shown himself to be a class act ever since his first win of the season.
