Have you looked at the aerial photos of the roadway?

If you look back through this topic you’ll see I posted aerial photos and maps of the area.

Have you reviewed the safety systems of the vehicle?  Do you understand how they are supposed to work?

I do.

Do you realize it has been reported by police that there were no skid marks?

Yep. So far, you’re striking out here buddy. Before we get too far into it, I have a question for you: did you see the part where I asked you/told you to stop with the speculation?

Isn't this very odd?

I provided a few possibilities why there might not be any skid marks. Plus, you can’t get skid marks if the car is in the air.

Pray tell how a vehicle with active collision avoidance and active steering gets you into a ditch, after crossing multiple lanes, across the central median, thru two oncoming lanes?  No skid marks?

I gave some possibilities. And until we know more… actually, even then, we don’t deal in speculation here. And that feels like the bulk of what you’re offering.

 I consider your perspective pure speculation if you haven't looked at those facts.

Strike three. I’ve seen them all. Where is your fact that the “motor was in his lap”? Oh, don’t have one? In fact, it directly contradicts the sheriff and deputy who said “the passenger cabin was largely intact”?

No more speculation.

That is simply impressive. 

I'm always surprised when something like this happens how many folks do impressive things to show their support. Good for them.

Thankfully you didn’t have dinner with a proctologist!

Sounds like they got to him quick enough to avoid amputation issues. I also think that being his right leg makes it more hopeful for full recovery for golf. Left leg is another story.

Lol. Yeah compartmental syndrome can get serious real fast...loss of limb. Luckily it appears his treatment was expedited. When all is over he’ll look like the terminator in those airport scanners.

I'm guessing his back did not appreciate all the jolting and rolling...

We can hope his body works like in the movies and the jolting and rolling put stuff back in order.

No reason to speculate about reasons, assists on or off etc. They will release the info they can when they got it. The fact a car ran off the road says nothing about safety levels. Assistants can be turned off and you can force the car off the road. No matter how much equipment a car has, the person behind the wheel is the operator.

With Tiger not being one to disclose every detail of his medical state and operations, who knows how much we’ll really know in the end. Not that the details are all that interesting.

Very sad indeed. I am surprised he doesn't have a personal assistant to make sure he gets to his appointments. Wake him up if needed, lay out his clothes, and for certain drive him to his destinations.

I rely on my wife when traveling on vacation. She makes all of the plane, car, and hotel arrangements. I don't know what time the plane departs usually until the day before. I would let her drive, but she goes too fast for my comfort. I drive like Steve Stricker in that Avis commercial.

Rory’s been killin’ it for awhile now. Pretty hard not to like him. He’s made some great comments and seems to have a very good attitude and really a good ambassador for golf.

I've always said an "accident" is when a meteor hits your house.  Almost everything else you have some control over.

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 can play golf again?-Dude is 45. Will be 46 before he can do much of anything athletic again.-I just hope he can walk relatively normally and pain free.--Lord knows I can not. Shut up about the golf. He is done and if by some miracle he is not then okay-But that would be a bonus to end all bonuses.

Well, the word "accident" is a misnomer.  Overly used by the human race to discount things we may have had a hand in.  In Tiger's case it is said he was going fast (the speed limit there is 45mph).  And apparently, he must have been somewhat inattentive to his surroundings, including the steep downhill slope.  If I'm skiing too fast, a bit out of control, and hit a tree, that is not an accident.  I could have prevented it.  What we don't know is if Tiger's brakes failed or if there was tire failure.  Since it wasn't his car and he had faith he was provided with a safe and fully-functioning car, then we could call it an accident.

So Mr. McGleno, let's call it an auto "crash".  More accurate.

It’s natural to wonder if and worry about whether Tiger Woods will ever play competitively again, but there are also other more relevant questions.

Do you think Tiger intentionally crashed his car? No? Then it’s an accident.

    • I regret that I quit playing golf when I had kids.  I did buy them a cheap set when they were young. My daughter was never interested. My son was interested but time, money, general sense of family obligation, and fear of slow play kept us from playing more that a couple times per year, particularly after a golf buddy moved away. My son has atrial flutter, a heart tachycardia problem, that made him quit playing soccer after his sophomore year of high school.  Three ablations were not able to fix it and he relies on medication to control it now. He decided to play golf instead of soccer and now loves it. He is much better than I am and will play golf at an NAIA college this fall.  This finally got me back on the course over the last 3 years and he is my main playing partner for now. A younger friend of mine has 4 kids under 12 years old.  The older 2 are into golf and I end up playing with them sometimes when I play with my friend.  The younger 2 also occasionally play or at least ride along. We usually play an adult/kid scramble on Sunday nights when the course is not crowded.  It can be a lot of fun as the kids aren't too bad, but certainly not young Tigers either. Beginning this week I am playing in a Saturday night 2 man scramble league with one of the kids my partner.  I don't even know which one it is yet as I just agreed to it blindly.  I hope it is the 10 year old as he a slightly better swing than his older brother.  It will be interesting to see how that works out. I sometimes wish I had my kids on the course like my friend does.
    • The paparazzi got some photos of Woods heading into a hospital or something yesterday and seen putting "significant" (in their words) weight on injured leg. Hope his recovery is progressing smoothly.
    • I started golf with professional lessons around the age of 11 and have been golfing ever since.  Most of the stories with kids involved is of me.  However, I was also a rules marshal in my home course when we have junior tournaments there so have seen some kids who have become very impressive amateurs and even one or two who have become pro's. Regarding clubs, see if they can use the same clubs provided it doesn't affect their swing.  If not, either consider getting shaft extenders or look at clubs where you can change the shaft with a tool and then replace shafts as necessary.  Not cheap, I admit, but might be necessary.  Definitely consider the younger child getting hand me down clubs from the elder child provided the specs fit.
    • Our Junior golf program starts kids at a very young age and the kids progress as their abilities become better. Most will start will the 3 hole program playing from around 100 yards. Then they move back to 150. Then the program advances them to 5 hole rounds. They start at 150 and move back to 200 yards. When they are able to average a set scoring ability they will advance to 9 hole short course and then 9 hole long. During the stages, staff will have instructional days along with fun games they play at the range. Each season consists of a putting contest and a family scramble with award dinner at the end of the season sessions. The program has become very popular as the membership grows with over 300 kids participating. Parents are encouraged to keep scores for groups during the season. Many just walk along and observe and assist when needed. Most kids complete the entire program and they make many new friends. My observance over the years is when kids play, they are learning safe manners and  exhibit a good mannerism learning etiquette and sportsmanship and rules. IMO, kids will enjoy leaning golf with other kids. I enjoyed having my grandson in the program for several years. It also provided me an opportunity to meet the children of many regular golf members who I have golfed with through the years.
