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.

    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
    • I think he’s making a huge assumption that something he feels makes him do something, will translate to anyone else. I think tips like these come from instructors who confuse the concept of what’s natural anatomy wise isn’t natural function wise if that makes sense.
