Maybe he is looking for drift wood on the beach?

LOL... This could be like the other thread on TST - where people just start hitting bombs into the group ahead of them.
I'd like to see one of them pick up on a hole and quit.
Seriously, it looks like everybody just wants to get off the course...including Tiger. 2008 Torrey Pines on Monday, this is not.
Slow play aside, I don't think I will ever understand why a player like Tiger, with the incredible talent he has, seems to be unable to find a way to hit a driver. If his driver was even close to the average player's driver, he'd be double digits ahead of the field. Even on 17 when he played what appeared to be a popped up 3 wood, it was still his incredibly poor driving that caused that club selection in the first place. He's still going to win by at least 3 or 4 strokes but, I think that he will still see it as a failure.
He has to know that he can't keep winning, especially in majors, unless he gets something figured out with his tee shots.
He still has the stinger. This course is really long so maybe he decided not to go to it as often. But I don't get why the announcers were suggesting he doesn't have a go-to shot. He does, it's just not with his driver. And he's had good success with it in majors.
Oh, and regarding the actual tournament ... I said last year during the Tiger V. Rory poll that Tiger would win 5 times this year, (among other things ... http://thesandtrap.com/t/62054/bet-on-2013-tiger-vs-rory/0_30#post_768076) so why not start this week?
Ch-ching! One down, 4 more (and a few other things) to go!
(If you win a new driver for correctly picking the winner and winning score in the majors, then what do I get for this prediction?)
A broken tee, perhaps??
