Westwood with 0 bogeys so far this week. I like his chances to win it all

ITs not looking too good...jabbing at it a bit.

If I am speaking of the same putt, both he and Tiger both thought that putt was going to move a little left. Tiger didn't really go to school on Nick's putt...they both missed it a few inches right.

Wish I could watch some of his stellar play.

They show almost all of his approaches/putts on skysports. Almost nothing other than TW/Watney and Westwood

No offense intended here, but yours is the view of someone watching golf for the first time. Even during his dominant years, Tiger lost over 70% of the time. And he hit bad shots even during good weeks, or he would never have had to chip in on 16 at the 2005 Masters.

That memorable shot put Tiger two up with two to play, against journeyman Chris DiMarco. According to you, "Tiger" would not have let DiMarco back in, but he proceeded to bogey the last two holes, and had to win in a playoff. Journeyman YE Yang spotted "Tiger" two shots in the last round of the 2009 PGA, and still beat him by three. Even during the greatest season ever seen in golf, in between setting records at the 2000 Open and the 2000 PGA, "Tiger" couldn't manage a top ten against the weak field at the Buick Open.

That's golf. I'm not saying Tiger will regain his 2000 form, or even his 2009 form. But to say he's washed up at 36, based on a round or three while he's still in the middle stages of a swing change, is just ridiculous.

Maybe they're showing the matches in reverse alphabetical order?!?

I guess they don't show more of Rory because his shirt is very ugly

Oops...I'm good at jinxing. Just ask any Chicago sports team! Double bogey for Westwood! He's still three up through 13 but Karlson looks like he may be heating up. I am trying some reverse jinxing!a2_wink.gif

I wonder if Rory got a free bowl of soup with that shirt!?

Tiger, 9i from 190 into a breeze...Really? I know it is a bit down hill and the ball is flying but that was just dumb. I would appreciate an explanation for your actions via thesandtrap.com after your round!

And right as I type this you try to hit a 7i from 226!!! Joe obviously has no say in any of Tiger's decision making. I don't like Steve WIlliams but he would have told Tiger to remove his head from his ass at least.
post #137 of 321

Well everyone is sure getting their Tiger fix again lol... Would really be nice to see a little more then just the odd putt made by Westwood or the odd clip of Rory's ugly shirt..... seriously whats with the shirt.

I'd like to hear the inside story about why Tiger dumped Steve. Not only is his club selection bad, but they mentioned yesterday that Joe never helps Tiger read putts, and Tiger is constantly saying he can't see the lines, so he obviously needs some help.

Obviously....Tiger must not trust him yet or something. I heard that same comment about Joe reading putts. And as I type this he pushes another one right! Tiger needs a belly putter! ha ha.

I personally think Tiger dumped Steve because his ego wouldn't allow him to let Steve work with A Scott while he was hurt. In Tiger's mind he probably felt like Steve was his property and nobody elses. Which is kinda crazy if you think about it.

Ive never seen anybody hit a ball that far left

post #141 of 321

He can probably drop it greenside for a routine up and down

And Watch, he will get to drop it right left of the grandstand and probably make a par. If the gradnstand wasn't there, his ball would be past the next tee box and into the dessert. We were having this discussion during the Abu Dabi when Rory blasted one over the stands on 18 and got a drop right next to green and made birdie still.

That drives me nuts when I hit a shot that isn't terrible and can't find it.  These guy have spotters, crowds, and grandstands that keep the ball playable and find it in the long grass.  I re-tee for my 3rd stroke.

Not only that, but you don't get a million bucks when you play well.
