I guess it varies, but what is the typical outcome when you see a car that looks like that after having rolled over?

He did shear off an 8" thick tree, they said in the presser.

Deputy Gonzalez is doing a great job.

I think this is St Andrews

Interesting Twitter thread from a doctor:  

What is the point of this?-So it was not an accident even though that is what we call things like this-Auto Accidents? Is anyone else as annoyed by the talking heads worrying or wondering when he

I witnessed a couple of rollovers in the last ten years. One was a landscaping truck. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was extremely lucky because the truck kept rolling and he went out the window. I was right behind him when it happened on the highway. His tired blew then the truck lost control and rolled. He was in pretty good shape when I got to him.

The other was a rollover and it was on its roof. There was a a lady inside. I grabbed a blanket and crawled in the back window, which was gone. I told her to turn the car off. She was still in the seat with the seatbelt on upside down. I told her that we were going to wait for the fire department to come get her out. I stayed with her until they came. Her car looked like Tiger's.

I think we're all holding our collective breaths and hoping he survives and recovers from this. Are there enough facts to support any guesses as to whether he comes back to golf or is this it? With his back and now this... I'm not optimistic. Of course, I want him to come back and win more, but part of me also wants him to hang it up and live out his days at peace with himself.

Dude, what? I was responding to the poster who implied he gets in his car loopy, not Tiger Woods. We don't know what the cause of the crash was and I'm not speculating. But, anyone acting like getting in a car half asleep is somehow acceptable behavior needs to be set straight. 

No, he was saying that Tiger's look and demeanor in that interview are how he is before his first cup of coffee.  Take the L and let it go.

Jimmy Roberts says "Don't speculate but use your imagination." STFU Jimmy!

Love to hear him explain what the difference is.

because the word explain only has one i, not 3.

One can only hope that he recovers and gets back to something resembling normal. Being able to play competitively again, while I certainly hope it happens, would be a complete bonus at this point.

I REALLY wish they would stop talking about his "body being broken" on TGC. Stop speculating on whether this is the end of his competitive career. Let's just sit tight until we know more.

We still do not know the severity of the injuries correct? 

Maybe?

A part of me almost hopes it is. Maybe it'll force him to retire instead of clinging on for a long time. I'd almost selfishly only want him to come back if he's at least like 93% or something, and I don't know that he can be that.

I don't know. I remember Arnie hanging on for a long time after he was no longer competitive. It was kinda cool seeing him out there playing even what you knew he had no chance. 

Plus, I never begrudge a guy if he wants to keep trying and keep plugging away trying to catch lightening in a bottle one more time. When Tom Watson came close at the British in 2009, I thought it was really captivating to watch. I feel Tiger should hang up his spikes when he's ready. It would be a shame in my opinion if a car accident forced his decision. 

Sounds like it was a good thing he was wearing his seatbelt.

That certainly does not sound promising. 😥

Tiger can come back to become the oldest to win the Masters. 

Augusta National is very hilly.  Walking a practice round and then 4 rounds might be too much for him.  Never mind all the swings.

I meant, come back in 2 years.

    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction. 
    • One of the things I have noticed about really good Youtube channels - let alone excellent films, is exactly this. There might be a time lapse that would take hours to video, but it is on screen for perhaps less than two seconds. But it gives the presentation quality. Look at films with incredible special effects and costumes/props - Lord of the Rings, for example. Years and years go into making things like a belt that a camera may never even focus on, or be a hundred metres a way, but the film wouldn't work without them.The total is greater than the sum of its parts. The flip side of this, of course, is that a prop that takes 5 minutes to make and looks like crap it is noticeably crap even if it is on screen for half a second, like a poorly photoshopped "family portrait" or newspaper "front page" with a stuck on headline on paper not even close to the colour of the newspaper. The devil is in the detail and tiny things connect to make the big picture. A bit like golf, perhaps.
    • I’d rather have it shut than open. I can find a swing where it’s more shut than that. Open doesn’t work for me, the extended lead wrist gets me steep and I shallow late, leave the face too open (or shank) going to A7. The last 3 instructors I’ve worked with have told me to bow the lead wrist at 4 more and I’ll get away from that and get steep.  When I try and do that my arms come off my chest and path goes too out to in. When I feel like I drop the club behind me at A4 my arms will go out towards the ball pretty good I think, like in the second swing, at A5 my hands bisect the torso. 
    • My 2 cents is that if you have to add more than 1.5" or so, you are really in need of new shafts. As far as "orange dot length" is concerned, I always thought that the dot color only denoted lie angle, not length. For example, if I were to order Pings, I would want blue dot (1" upright) at standard length (I fall on the short end of standard range). I just came across an old post on here that give a good Ping chart. Don't comment in there unless it is really pertinent though, as it is quite an old thread.
