Tiger starting off great! Gotta stop with the bogeys, he’d have a nice lead if he could eliminate those damn mishaps.

That's apparently Tiger's best opening round in a tournament since 1996. Must be nice after opening with bogey-bogey-bogey.

Best "season" opening round since 1996 I believe is what they were saying.

Aha. I never actually saw an article on it, just mentioned by someone on a forum. Couldn't find an article that mentioned it either.

Either way, it's nice to see him get off to a good start. Seems like it's been awhile. And watching live golf in prime time is kinda nice.

I am not a fanboy.  It is just not in my nature.  Also, I do not keep up with PGA Tour golf very much.  But I stumbled upon this before bed last night and I have to admit.  I am stoked to see him looking good out there.  At his best, he was like a superhero.  It feels comfortable to have that back in some limited form with his comfortable green jacket.

Between the weird airtime and the second round delay my brain is all scrambled - I swear Tiger has been sitting on the first-round lead for 4 days running.

I watched some of it, and was struck by Tiger acting "like he'd been there before".  You know how some athletes seem out of place, scoring a touchdown, or hitting a home run, and acting like they've never done it before, and never expect to do it again.  Tiger didn't look like that.  He looked more comfortable to me than he did even in the Tour Championship, or the Masters.  The other thing that struck me was that he actually had a couple putts that didn't drop that looked pretty good.  Can he keep it up?  Who knows?  Will his body let him?  Don't know.  But he looks much more himself (or his old self) that he has in a while.

Poulter posted a video of the typhoon on the course.

Golf course has received a staggering amount of rain today.. Under this water is the 10th fairway somewhere. You can see the green in the top of the picture. This course drains incredibly well and will be ready for us tomorrow, tee times are now between 9.30-11.30

 

Quote

Torrential rain caused flooding and mudslides Friday in towns east of Tokyo, leaving one dead and two missing and expanding damage in areas still recovering from recent typhoons.

More than six inches of rain was recorded at the Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club on Friday.

“Due to safety concerns, PGA Tour officials have announced the course will unfortunately be closed to all spectators and ticket holders on Saturday as the well-being of our fans is paramount,” the PGA Tour said in a statement.

Back-to-back rounds of 64. I can't remember the last time Tiger was -12 after the first two rounds.

 LOL, I know. I use a friend's login cable information to get access to the streaming on the golf Channel app, but it has not been working for me recently.

Haha it’s football season for me. Usually stay quiet from Aug-Feb, but I have been following. It’s been impressive. Guess the rest has done him well. He looks like he did at Augusta. Would be great to see him get 82 here and 83 at either Torrey or Bay Hill.

Oh I hear ya...I’m huge on NCAA Football...hoping to see OSU do it’s usual egg drop and lose to Wisconsin...not too hopeful but hell they’ve lost to Iowa and Purdue when everyone thought they were unbeatable...( the embarrassing ass whipping from OU was hushed of course.) lol.

College football is terrible, the quality of QB play is so inferior to the NFL it makes it unwatchable for me

    • I agree, I can feel it too.  But you get used to it pretty quickly and then you don’t even think of it.
    • What loft was he using on those heads?  The Flash is a low spin head, I forget what the TS2 is.  With an 85 mph clubhead speed I’d be as concerned about the head as I am the shaft.  The Flash also has the weights, how are those set up? FWIW my son is also small... older than your son but he is 5’even and 80lbs.  He hits a Ping G SFT 12 degree with a senior shaft.  Hits it about 225 yards with a tight little draw.  He has always had a draw anyway.    I didn’t mind getting him the SFT because he plays it at full length and the SFT feature would enable him hitting a draw with a shaft that’s too long so he would get some distance.
    • So I haven't been pleased with my putting lately.  It just seems like I have been fighting it on the backswing, and that is throwing me off. So I thought I would pull out a bunch of putters. like many people have and weigh them and see what the balance turned out to be.  This is not scientific since I am using a Taylormade Monza IB Spider as the baseline weight and using a digital scale.  I realize this only gives me overall static weight of the putter and not the head weight.  I'm just guessing at that since they all have small pistol grips.  The IB weighed 537gr and has a spec of 350gr headweight.  It has a slight toe balance. 1930's Burke 15oz, 90* toe balance (Found in my parent's garage as a kid and actually used it a long time ago because I thought it was cool). 1985 Taylormade TPA V 488gr 17-1/4oz, guess 300gr HW slight toe (First real putter that I used for a long time... Nevada Bob's). 1990's Teradrops TD-xx 504/508 17-3/4oz, guess 315/320gr HW slight toe (Drank the roll face kool-aid a few years ago, they do roll nice). 2008 Adams Mallet 523gr 18-1/2oz, guess 335gr HW face balance (Got this after wife took my IB, I loved this putter before Jim Jones got a hold of me... back in the bag). I have others, the 80's are around the same weight (slight toe, except one that is about 80*) and I have a Teardrop RFD that is "toe up" by 30* and is almost 19-1/2oz-360gr HW.  It is super stable... but boy I hate that one. I realize that my list is really low budget and most people wouldn't be caught dead with any of them.  But this was kind of an exercise in looking back at the years and also have some baseline for me.  I don't buy a lot, but I realize that I've picked up too much of the same that isn't working, at least for my current setup.

    • I get it.  But the bottom line is, that just because it’s on the cart path, the actual procedure doesn’t change at all from any other drop.  That’s why you’re not finding anything.  There’s no difference in the procedure at all.
