Indeed Tigers opponent seemed to be very nervous and didnt get his game together until late in the round. So nothing special there from Tiger, but i´m sure he can step it up if he needs to.

i do think cink will do a good job, i think it will be him and micklson on friday. The way phil has been playing the last week, I dont see how cink could beat him. I did not see phile today though so I guess I have no place to talk.

i agree as he will be up against the next big thing;) McIlroy vs Woods would be an awesome match! the "next tiger" against the man himself, cant wait to see them go head to head

I say Tiger either wins the event outright, or he loses in the 2nd round to Tim Clark 3 and 2.

Called it. He lost 4 and 2, oh well. But I had him losing to Tim Clark in my pool! Awesome! I wanted him to win though....

And AK can also make other plans.

Tiger played poorly

Clark played to perfection. Tiger was late on most of his shots and didn't really make the clutch putts that he needed. What surprised me was that Tiger said he was happy with his ballstriking today, saying that he only missed one 8 iron and one driver, but I felt that he missed so much more than that.

McIlroy hasn't convinced me in the first two rounds, but he's made it so far. Played some great golf in the end today though. Rory vs Tim can be a close match if both play like they can.

Would've been great to see Villegas vs McIlroy.

Yeah I didn't get that either. He missed greens with short irons yesterday and today. His driving, even with a 3W, was bizarre at times, finding bunkers and the rough on fairly generous fairways...

So sure, he may have hit the ball solidly, but he either hit it solidly dead sideways fairly often or with the wrong clubs.

As alluded to earlier, Tiger's round today is a perfect example of good ball striking not necessarily equating good results. He played like he hadn't played competitive golf in eight months. But that was some hole-out from the sand on #15 -- awesome.

    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.  
    • I will be competing in a 4-club tournament in a few weeks. I'm leaning toward the following choices: 3-wood -- I usually hit it about 215 but I'm hoping to choke down and swing easier to hit it under 200 6-iron -- for all shots 90 yards to 160 sand wedge -- for all shots under 90 yards  putter -- I don't think I could putt with anything else. I personally think this should be required in order to protect the greens, but that is not the case.  Any thoughts on different or better choices?   
    • Day 510: Did some weight/pressure shot drills in my office at work without a club. Did more takeaway/backswing work at home, and hit some foam balls at slow speed incorporating backswing and weight/pressure shift elements.
