Tiger Tops Tee Shot

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 

Anybody watch Tiger top the first tee shot on his 2nd 9 holes? I found it very enjoyable :p

I didn't catch it. Fell asleep when they were on 15. (His 6th hole of the day) I recorded it so I will check it out when I'm home

They never showed a good shot of it from what I could tell.

I understand the poster of the YT video is trying to convey that Woods hit a bad shot, but fat top shank?

 

Is it possible to top and fat and shank a shot at the same time?

i think it was a drop-kicked duck hook, from what i could tell.  it appeared that the ball ended up short and well left - hence the duck hook.  he also hit the ground at least 3 inches behind the teed up ball - hence the fat/topped.  there was no shank, from what i can tell.

This wasn't too pretty either.

     Rory and Tiger both hit shots that were much more "human" than their usual, always makes me feel a little better. I have not seen Rory make two doubles in a round in a long time. Rory has at times hit some bad shots, he just usually recovers better than he did yesterday.

Just caught up in coverage. Rorys second on 18 and tigers tee shot on 1 I can relate to :)

Both of them hit some less than stellar shots. Time for them to shake of the rust and get back to work.

I do it all the time.

Exactly, they will both be fine once they hit their stride. I expect them to both finish the season, barring injury, some where in the top 5 possibly 1 and 2a1_smile.gif

 

EDIT* Unless the 'courting of Elin' stories are true and a new media storm is imminent, in which case all bets are off.b3_huh.gif

I wish they would show those rare bad shots better than they typically do.  I would've liked to see a slow-mo and the announcers should've said what the carry distance was.  Not to embarass the guy - but I would just find it interesting as a viewer.  Plus it helps you understand how good the *next* shot is (which it usually is).

I have both those shots in my bag... I just never know when...

The addage of, "Cheaper to keep her" applies here. e4_tumbleweed.gif

Man, I can't afford to throw my clubs around after making a bad shot...they would all be bent and dinged to heck.

Tiger's next instructor - Patrick57 and logman. That's why he was in Austria - it wasn't for Lindsey Vonn!
