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 know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....  
    • Day 284: Worked a bit on my priority pieces with a new drill to feel the left leg push back. Then worked on tempo.
    • Ugh. They better keep him away from tall buildings for a few days…
    • Broke 90 today (from the white tees) with an 88.   Most consistent round ever...now to turn the 5's to 4's and the 6's to 5's....
    • Day 40 (05 Aug 21) - Solo round today as the rain had relented.  Course was pretty open as there was only one person ahead and no one behind.  Allowed me to be not rushed as I played 18 at the local course.  A good day with the putter which I did have two putters with me - my old DF992 and the Odyssey White Steel 5.  As I had time, I would set up a second ball once on the green, play out the original ball for the score and then putt the other ball with the other putter from the same distance.  Found I am much more accurate with the White Steel 5, so in the bag it stays.
