You telling us you don't care for how he handles his personal life in light of this wasn't really needed.

 

Congrats to Tiger. His game is coming into shape just in time for the US Open. He's peaking perfectly.

Well, I did say I love his golf greatness.

 

And I was on the edge of my seat watching him and wanting greatness.

 

And I did say I got chills when he pitched in on 16.

 

All people have issues, some grow from them, others don't, and some are not aware of their issues - it's their life. I am glad to watch Tiger's golf greatness, and I wish him the best. Not that he cares. But I always wish the best for everyone.

 

That was a heckuva comeback. And to get the 73rd at Jack's place to tie Jack - wow.

I agree that Tiger has probably suffered enough for his personal mistakes, and whatever one may think of him personally is very much secondary to appreciating Tiger the golfer. I also think that the timing of calling him a douche after what he just did is classless at best.

That's how you get it done folks. Tiger now has won arnie and jacks tournaments this year. Both had solid fields and great moments. I would say tiger is stepping in to stride.

2012...the year of awesome golf.

At least now we won't have the controversy of tiger having to be a ryder cup captains pick. I'm glad to see more american players breaking in to the top of the owgr.

Can't we all just agree that today was an awesome day for Golf? Tiger looked like his old self out there and even his bad shot s were great.

 

But, Rickie Fowler? What the hell happened there? An 84? That is totally shocking for him. Rory McIlroy didn't make the cut  and I'm really surprised at how he is falling off lately.

He should enter next year's Wyndham, so he can get his 82nd win there.

The guy creates excitement in the game like no one else. Great that he's winning again. Golf is definitely more fun to watch when he's in the hunt.

Incredible chip in

Fowler's 84 is insane.  Guess he isn't ready to handle Tiger on a sunday. 
 

post #263 of 342

Andfor those who complain about Tigers personality, at least I dont see him throwing his ex-friends under the bus like they have to him.

 

He may have fired them, but thats his right as the boss when he feels a change is needed. Haney and Williams have totally betrayed the trust of man who made them both filthy rich. Neither would be known outside the tour if not for Woods, yet I havent heard him say a single thing about them aside from "I think its dissapointing that a teacher would betrays his students trust like that. Nothing more. He hasnt trashed them. Woods is private, but he affords others the same privacy he expects.

I thought it was interesting when Nantz mentioned how in 2009 Tiger won every event he played before each major, and he's done the same so far this year. Not that it means anything for his future major chances, but just something I found interesting.

I knew it! Wow was that chip in ever great.... Reminded me of #16 @ Augusta in 2005.

I just read this evening that Tiger was playing this tournament while he had the flu?   Geez, have to imagine how he would have done if he was 100% healthy!

He might not have won. They say "beware the injured golfer" for a reason.

post #268 of 342

You see the part in the presser where he said he was hitting irons farther.  The guy asks him why that is and he says something like "Because I'm not scooping it anymore".. LOL  imagine what Haney and Butch think of that...

Why is everyone calling this a chip-in? That's not a chip shot.

Because it's not a "hole-out," and "pitch-in" and "flop-in" aren't widely used.
