what is stack and tilt, I keep hearing that phrase.

I just read what it is. I have actually been doing this same stuff in my swing even before I have read the stack and tilt method. I always would try to keep most weight on my left foot because I felt I hit the ball better and could control it better that way and have been doing that for years.

Tiger will go solo for 2 years and fix it himself. He needs to stay over the ball and focus on impact. He will be in the top 10% in total driving...then his irons, short game, and putting will wreck shop. Haney totally f-uped his swing.

Tiger will dig it out of the dirt like Hogan did. His swing 10 years ago was the best ever....undeniable power and accuracy.......CRISP! He will find it again.

Tiger has walked the runway nude with his problems...his second chance has just started. The horse has been beat enough!

I think Tiger went with hank because of mark o meira, who is a close friend to tiger. Haney came along side mark o meira when mark first became a pro and was stuggling to stay pro. I guess Haney helped him to stay on tour and to actually start winning.

This should be interesting with Tiger and how his swing will change with his coach. Will it be Butch? It was a nice way to let Hank go if Tiger had a change of mind. What the real question would be is who is the next celebrity for Hank on his TV show?

More than I need to.

Not meaning to hijack here, but I see now why people from Colorado have such long driving averages - they be hitting off mountains.

I think Tiger should compile all Golf Digest instructional tips he's personally done (sure he did) and videos of his own swing when it was its most perfect (___insert swing version____) and then hire Cameron to create a virtual 3D uberhot alien chick as a coach / mentor. It could fill all his current needs.

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

Haney may have quit on his own. Not easy being associated with Tiger, especially with a shark feeding frenzy going on. Just about anyone known to be coaching Tiger will have to wall himself off. Not something you can do if you want to continue working with ordinary golfers. I can imagine a flock of reporters hanging around Hank Haney's golf facility, trying to sneak in or get in by signing up for lessons.

Steve Williams can handle the association. Nobody is going to get in his face, and besides, he can hide out in New Zealand.

Has anyone mentioned D & A? It's not only a matter of a disruption of Tiger's life. Indications were that back during the November incident, while he still had something of a homelife, Tiger was taking at least two prescription drugs in addition to drinking. It's hard to take mood affecting drugs routinely and analyze and rebuild your golf swing. If Tiger is not careful, in a dozen years he could pull a Michael Jackson. Their lives, thanks in part to us, have definite similarities. Oh, the sad life of a superstar.

My son played in a 2 day tournament this weekend, one of the players he was paired with is in the Sean Foley academy, one of Sean's assistants teaches him. Anyway...the buzz is that Sean will be Tiger's new coach.

Can we assume he took my advice? I'd cook up a cross between Lara Croft, Laura Diaz and Cristie Kerr - or one of the random hotties from Tiger Woods '09 for Wii.

I watched the press conference from Memorial earlier and it sounds like Tiger has no plans of getting a new coach immediately. Says he has replaced Haney with a video camara!

Yes...but Foley was wathcing him warm up yesterday. I think it will be half video camera - half Foley...with no official announcement in the next 6 months.

    • Probably had my best shot of the week/month/year/life today. I was hitting block fades with driver all day today (well each of the 5 times I hit driver anyways), so on #18, I predictably hit a block fade over the trees on the right of the hole onto an adjacent fairway. If you hit the ball far enough to get past the trees, you have an unobstructed approach to the green, but the green becomes shorter front to back than if you are in the right fairway due to the bad angle. I was about 135 yards to the hole, slightly uphill (I could see the top half of the pin). Without my PW I had to hit a partial 9-iron. I flushed it and the flight of the ball never left the flag. I almost wanted to do a Tiger club twirl and start confidently stalking after the ball. I saw it hop once and then lost sight of the ball behind some mounds. Walked up to the green and saw my ball peaking out of the cup atop the pool noodle. Pitch mark was about 8 feet from the hole. First eagle since I was in college 20+ years ago.
    • 97, 51/46 with a 10 on a par five on the front (3 water balls). First time playing this course, Maccasin Run in PA. Beautiful track. Absolutely pristine.  Grass everywhere even in the rough. Leaves cleared off. Tightly mown. No excusses for hitting a bad shot.  Weather low 50s with a slight breeze.  
    • Shot an 86 today, with 13 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, and 2 penalty strokes. Only carried 8 clubs today (Driver, 3-hybrid, 5/7/9-iron, 50/60 degree wedge, putter), so hit a lot of partial shots, which I enjoyed. Overall golf was very solid, but I had two bad holes where I was +7. First one was on #1, where I blocked my drive down the right side, bounced off a cart path into the ether, so dropped with a 2 stroke penalty. Then my approach (4th stroke) got rejected by a branch, and 5th shot was over the green. Pitch on and 2 putts for an 8 (+4). Second one was on the par-3 7th. Another block, this time with 5-iron, also caught a cart path and bounced about 30 yards past the green. Rushed my 2nd shot since I was standing in the playing line of golfers on another hole and came up well short. Another pitch landed short, and finally a pitch onto the green and 2 putts for a 6 (+3). Finished the round with a hole out for eagle on the 18th which made the round very satisfying overall.
    • Holed out an approach for eagle in today’s round. I think it’s been over 22 years since my previous (and only other) eagle.
    • Day 352 Played 18 today. Really stiff and sore from painting and moving furniture around all weekend, so only carried 8 clubs. Focused on good takeaway/backswing and tempo. Played pretty well, except for 2 holes where I was +7.
