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.

 

 

 

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.

 

I didn't see a link.

When Tiger is in the field and playing well, I'm watching every second of it. If he's not playing well, or not in the field, I'm barely watching with any interest. Only other players I enjoy are Stricker and Jason Day. Like it or not, that is the guy that moves the needle. Period.

I watch golf when I can't play it or don't have family or work obligations.  I'll watch, regardless of whether Tiger is playing, but I'm more interested when Tiger is playing well.  I think Tiger will be the last guy to challenge Jack's record given the amount of parity there seems to be right now in professional golf.

I didn't realize Tiggy has won 8 times at Bay Hill. I knew it was a lot.. but didn't know it was that many. He has to be a favorite this week.

If he was healthy.  Backs always come back (pun intended)

If you can remember, Woods won this event 2 years ago after withdrawing from the WGC Cadillac with an injury. Wouldn't be surprised if he won. He has won 4 of the last 5 at this event.

I watch a lot of golf, but when the big names are at the top of the leaderboard, it does make things more exciting.


And there's certainly no bigger name than Eldrick "Tiger" Tont Woods in golf, and even in sports.

That is just a crazy number. Winning 8 out of 16 times you tee it up against the best in the world at that one venue :bugout:

I think Tger has won 7 times at Torrey Pines as well, but he missed the cut there in January. I haven't seen anything out of Tiger yet this season that would make me think he is the favorite to win anywhere.

Tiger has been so erratic last few years, I don't know what to expect.

I hope he does well, though, and wins.  I would like to see him get his game in shape for Augusta.

I don't think you can call eight wins and the number one ranking erratic

Wow. Disappointing, but gotta be the right choice.

 

So no more events for Tiger until Augusta?

That would suck so much. Hopefully he'll be up and ready for Augusta.

Holy crap. What reason given, his back?
