"The Second Life of Tiger Woods" by Michael Bamberger


Recommended Posts

I just got it in yesterday, got through the first chapter so far. (What I think is the first chapter - there's no ToC.)

I have mixed expectations based on on interview he did on NLU's Trap Draw podcast.

I'm on about page 80 and not really enjoying it. I'm right in the middle of the PED stuff, and Bamberger's own opinions are clear, and I'm really getting annoyed by the jumping around he's doing. We're in 2009, then we're up to 2017, then 2013, then back to the 2010 Masters, etc. It's annoying, particularly for a book that purports to be about 2017 onward.

And the PED stuff is bullshit. It appears to be entirely based on the hearsay of Tony Bosch, with no corroboration of literally anything.

I’m on page 100 or so and MY GOD this is why books usually have chapters. I was extremely unsurprised when he mentioned that his editor also edited the Benedict and Keteyian book.

I finished the book, didn’t like it at all really. It jumps around so much. I learned nothing new. I’m decidedly not a Bamberger fan, apparently.

Double bogey.

    • Welcome to The Sand Trap!   You may be a while waiting for a response to this one, the last post here is almost 11 years old.  But take a look around, and chime in to whichever threads interest you.
    • what app are you all using to track your golf stats. GIR & scrambling etc.? 
    • I suppose it depends on the length of the golf course.  I would say somewhere between a 7 and PW.  Personally I would like a PW because that is one of the favourite clubs in my bag and is useful enough to get you out of must situations onto the fairway.  If you are intending to use it to reach a green, then a longer club may well be required.  Definitely don't go something as long as a 5 iron, unless the course is such that you have no rough to speak off, in which case a 5 iron would be useful as punch out type of club to keep it low
    • Day 114 (7/29/21) -  Practice green - Worked on chipping with my 58* and 6H to different holes and from different lies, then putting out. Then played 5-holes of chip and putt, scoring a 13.  When putting, I focused on the hole, rather than the ball.  Range - Hit a small bucket. With wedges, hybrids and fairway woods I focused making sure the low point of my swing was in front of the ball. For driver, I focused on swinging smoothly and making sure the low point was behind the ball. The 2-3 best drives I hit today, bar far, were using the Distanza shaft in my G400.  
    • A group of us are playing a week in Arizona next month, and we are permitting ourselves to carry and use a 15th "desert" club for hitting out of rocks, dirt and the many less-than-club-friendly places our golf balls will find themselves. (I know that scratched clubs don't really affect performance).  What's the best desert club?  5 iron? 8 iron? Mark <>
