Tiger still went for birdies.

He's making eagles and birdies today. When Tiger won his British Opens, he wasn't taking any more than the course was allowing. He was just putting much better than the field. Sort of like Louis is doing. Playing smart and draining putts - he's kicking ass today - plain and simple.

Yes, but he did that early in his career, but he once said he finally learned that he doesn't have to win by 10 shots. Two or three gets the job done, too. That nuance gets lost on casual golf fans, though. They like him because of the personable and light-hearted image he created in the Nike ads he used to do (remember the Frank the Clubhead Cover?), the fact that he is a very handsome man, and the excitement he shows on the course, especially on the green when he sinks a putt that he needs to make at a key moment. No one else cuts a figure on the course like him, has the air of invincibility with a lead like him; who else on the Tour has the smile that lights up a room? Casual golf fans don't want drama. They want a sure thing, and Tiger's it. Or was.

ESPN may have low ratings but the viewer benefited. The free ESPN3 stream plus the BBC feed, we got to see alot of golf and avoid commercials. ESPN3.com (plus the World Cup) is awesome.

Of course he does. Now that he is staring a divorce in the eye he cares even more.

He lost 100-200 million out of however much he has. Not that bad.

I have verizon phone internet, but I didn't think about trying it. I did try my password. I have timewarner and I didn't feel like working too hard to set it up.

umm... you really think nike ads had something to do with people liking tiger? i think the fact that winning 5 tournaments in a season is almost a letdown for him, and him crushing the field by double digit strokes, and the fact that he has, along with phil, the greatest short game ever has to do with people liking him. plus he's an athletic black/asian american, which was the antithesis of the cigar smoking fat white guy image most had in their minds eye of the avg. pga tour player. he made golf better, made people become athletes to compete with him, and forced everyone to up their game. all that is why people love tiger, it's got nothing to do with a nike ad.

It gets old being right all the time.

This place is an absolute dog path. You know, I wouldn't have a problem with the tournament being here if they would just come out and admit that they're playing it there because it's so old and the "home of golf" and not because it's a good golf course. Other than those two factors, there is absolutely nothing that separates it from the dog path ten minutes from my house.

I disagree. I have played this course only on PS3 of course but it gives a very different look at golf than other courses around the world. It is different and a different challenge for the pros. Although it does seem somewhat easy with balmy weather but if it is rarely perfect weather there is no need to make the course any more difficult.

Isn't the ability to turn a huge 54 hole lead into an even bigger lead, one of the many reasons so many casual golf fans had a crush on Tiger Woods?

Yeah-I don't understand why it's tremendously popular only when Tiger does it. It's boring to me either way-I'm impressed with Louis, just as I'm impressed when Tiger runs away with it, but not terribly interested.

    • I would say the Ace wins.  Hard to deny them the prize to give it to someone who need 2-3 shots.
    • If you know you are better, just get enjoyment out of beating them 😉 If not, mindfulness is a good way to try to not stay annoyed. 
    • So today I was paired with a couple of annoying golf partners.  I would guess they cost me a few strokes, but we know that’s not possible as only we are responsible for our shots.  But maintains focus with the guys who play only a few times a year can have you lose focus and you can’t wait for the round to end. A few of these guys are in this video, especially Mr. Mood Swing. Enjoy:   
    • First, welcome to the Sand Trap!   Second, in my mind, of course an ace on a par-4 wins!!  Now if you get someone who pitches in for 2 I can see a discussion, he's just as close, but in a case of a tie, the win should go to the guy who did it in fewer shots.  I don't know what a proxy is worth in your group, but he can use it to payoff some of the drinks tab for the ace.
    • How does that work, you fly side by side? I'm still getting the hang of keeping the plane steady. You have to be really gentle with the controller sticks. I think I wore out the batteries stalling, making the controller rumble.
