That was a Chamblee special. "Oh, I can't hit a draw? Sure, no problem. I'll hit 2 back to back on the hardest hole on the course"

Tiger could have just hit his second shot into the front center of the green and let it feed to the hole like it did for Maggert and Witttenberg, but he took that statement shot

Yes when they are in different groups,  When they are in the same group it is who had the honors on #1.

Only if by lately you mean for about the last 10 years.  I remember when he hit the flagstick at the British Open and his ball bounced far from the hole, and he complained that he gets this kind of break but of Tiger hit the stick it would top by the hole .  I remember the US Open at Bethpage Black in 2002 when he complained that the USGA did not stop play because of the rain but they would have suspended play if Tiger had been out there.  In addition to his many other residences, Tiger has a permanent reserved room in Sergio's head.

 

 

Sergio's triple dunking on 17 and 18 today was just the golf gods' way of letting us know who was right in the silly pulling the club dispute. The real question is whether this will spark another of the famous Sergio funks where he isn't heard from for a year or two, competitively.

I don't think Sergio's quite there yet, but he's a lot closer than he was a week ago.

I am not a huge fan of Sergio but I like how he went for the win at the end instead of going for the sure 2nd or 3rd place finish like he could have.

I'm not sure that was the hole to do it with tho. A miss on that hole ends your tournament, a par keeps you alive. you can still birdie 18

I don't think he will leave it out of the bag.  But he will definitely use it sparingly.

Ironically, going for that pin assured of him of not winning.  Playing to the middle of the green would have given him just as much chance to win, albeit likely in a playoff.

I just wish Garcia had hit those shots out of a tree at seventeen. I did gain a lot more respect for him with his play and his demeanor with the media. Even with tiger the day before, just good old sportsmanship

Golf ain't football soccer or basketball. Its not meant for fans going bananas either.
Sergio might do bettter with a pacifier though.
I saw it too. Fans kicking the ball back towards the clear

Tiger Woods Owes Rivera play. That tournament, was if I am wrong, "correct me"...his first PGA event allbeit it as an amateur. Jerry West begged him to play the Northern Trust Open.
Man up Tiger you owe Rivera a play.

They did the same for Arnie.

 

I don't hear people bitch' about Arnie or his womanizing.

I have more respect for his reaction to his shots on 17th and his talking to the media afterwards than I did before this tournament.   Can't believe he was heckled by fans who would couldn't break 120 on this course.

Same here. I don't think many realize this. Like in NASCAR, he gunned it in the final lap but crashed and burned in the process.  Just got to wonder about his strategy.

USA Today calls Sergio's play on 17th as a "choke". Seriously?

 

 

Sergio Garcia chokes on the 17th tee, handing win to Tiger Woods

it WAS a choke.  he's a top tour pro with a wedge in his hand...and came up well short.  What else do you call it?

Maybe it was all those dry crackers his mommy put in his lunch. :-p

Sorry, I rarely rag on a player because let's face it, they are all infinitely good but Sergio is just such big baby it's hard not to dislike him.

I also felt like he was trying to put on a whole "happy go lucky" front on Sunday as if to say, "see look, I'm a great guy when that stupid Tiger isn't around to ruin my round."
post #306 of 510

It was a choke, he's a whiner, but I don't wish that kind of finish on anyone.

God knows I have had plenty of them. HA!
