If Tiger wins Bay Hill this week, it'll be his 9th victory there. That is ridiculous. And awesome.

Yeah but all those other shmoes are just kinda like the "red shirt" dudes in the old Star Trek show, part of the scenery and likely to be killed.

He's also the only player who moves the needle every time.

 

I often record PGA Tour golf. I only tend to watch it the past few years when Tiger's playing. And even then, if he's not around the lead on Saturday or Sunday, I often still don't watch the coverage.

One of the few courses on tour that the public can play. The 18th hole anything can happen. And that shot to the Sunday pin placement is SCARY. I'm a decent player and the landing area looks miniscule from where that Robert Gamez plaque is located.

I may run down and watch for a day.  The problem is, I'd rather play golf, than watch golf....

 

.....and if I play, we can still wander by our favorite local watering hole that employs very cute ladies dressed in very short skirts to serve very cold beer, and watch the tournament on the very big screen.   Kind of a win/win there.   ;-)

Yeah but now that you know GMac maybe he can get you inside the ropes.

Are you sure about that?

is this accurate? thought most of the tour's courses were TPC and open to public, provided you had the cash  ---and I thought you needed a member to get you onto Arnie's course.

Tiger at a tourney is like the Pied Piper - he attracts all the novice, casual fans who many wouldn't know the difference between  hybrid club and a putter.  It's really kind of funny to see the mob---many in Nike Tiger gear.  It does make things better because it really reduces the number of followers on course with some of the other big names like Dufner, Kucher, Schnedeker, Donald, Rose, etc etc.  That old ESPN commercial is spot on how events look when TW is playing.......

Not much of a sense humour, eh? The OP is playing the role of Super Fan Boy somewhat tongue and cheek (his tongue, Tiger's cheeks, you guess which ones b2_tongue.gif).

I know many many serious fans of golf who only watch the majors and tournaments in which Tiger is playing (some only watch anything when he's contending).

We'll be there Friday-Sunday. If you see a few guys in Foursum gear with promo models - be sure to say hi!

Generally you need to book a room and stay at the lodge, but you can get on the course.

 

Buddy and I are planning to do it this summer.  Great little getaway.....we'll take the wives over there Saturday and spend the night on the town.  Some great restaurants and night life in that part of town.  Stay at the lodge and the ladies will head home after breakfast in the morning and we'll play.

I have an 82 year old friend who adores Tiger.  She calls him, "My Tiger".  She's never played golf in her life.  So I guess it does bump the ratings.

There are 52 tour events. If you open the attached link you can count 9 TPC courses. Pebble, Torrey Pines, Kapalua and a few others are also open to the public. No, you do not need a member to play Bay Hill, you just need to stay at the Hotel.
