I am not predicting it will happen, but what if Tiger does a Duval, and only gets worse? Would it how much interest would fans and media still have in Tiger?

well I think this whole season is definitly going to effect him the rest of his life but Duval had injuries that he ingnored which caused his demise. Tigers life is just a mess, I think he will still win. Give him a few years, I mean come on, he was going to sex rehab!!

I can't imagine it will happen, but who thought after the 2001 British Open that Duval wouldn't rack up a half dozen top-10s (at least) the next year? Or that he'd fall to 884 at some point?

I think it's less likely due to the sheer dominance he displayed and the length of time he maintained it.

However, beyond the personal problems, he did have pretty major surgery that is going to mess with his swing. On the one hand, that could be part of the reason it's taking so long to bounce back, but it is the kind of thing that could do irreversible harm...

My gut tells me he'll come back. Never with as much dominance as he had, but he'll get back to winning regularly. Remember that he's not been doing all that badly, he's still in the hunt more often than not, so it's not like he's missing cuts regularly. It's a bit too early to draw any conclusions.

I think some of the haters are starting to feel for the guy now.

Oh, I think you're wrong there. If Tiger threw himself in front of a speeding bus to push a young mother and baby out of harm's way, some folks here would be posting in his memorial thread that the sonofabitch was probably just trying to get her phone number.

To be honest, I think this has been one of the most interesting seasons in recent history with Tiger playing badly. Media coverage, while still Tiger biased has had to look at other players that are playing great right now. We've seen some incredible scoring (albeit, maybe on easier course setups), and there's no clear favorite for every tournament. While I'm not a Tiger hater, I always want to see the little guy win out of nowhere, and we've seen that this year more than in the past.

What I find funny, is that watching the Golf Channel, some idiot always still picks Tiger to win every tournament he enters, when we have to be realistic, it's going to take a while if we ever see him back in form.

I was starting to think that he really likes the shade under those trees as Firestone. He is surprisingly off, and I am not sure when he will get it back. This type of performance has to be trying his confidence which is something he has never experienced. When you lose the mental edge, it is harder than the physical aspect. Hogan got hit by a bus and still walked 36 the last day to win the US Open. Are Tiger's "sexcapades" and public outing his bus accident? Yesterday was really hard to watch, but like a train wreck, we all watched as the Golf Channel milked it for all it was worth.

It's getting frustrating. I think some of the haters are starting to feel for the guy now.

hmmm, if you want a far fetched conspiracy, maybe Tiger is sandbagging right now. I think that the PR would have been pretty bad if he came back from his "issue" playing great.

If he plays the "broken man" for a while it would be good for his image.

He needs a coach fast! He needs to be told what is wrong with his swing! It's frustrating that he thinks he can get through this dip in form by himself.

His swing doesn't look bad. He misses when his tempo gets too fast. Just like most of us.

I watched him in person on the range at the memorial. He was just throwing darts, he didn't miss a shot. He just can't take that guy to the course for whatever reason. He just losses that rhythm on the course.

He will be back. But seriously, can Phil or someone take number one please. This is getting stupid.

Tiger said himself he is nailing it on the range, and he recently shot a 61.....it's when he's on the course with the crowds, cameras etc he is falling apart.

The pressure of thousands of accusing eyes and all that?Could well be it.

I don't think a swing coach is that big a deal for someone like Tiger.He knows Golf, he knows his swing.It's just a matter of executing under pressure.Might get that back, might not.

In that case I've been nailing it at the range (easily 450-500) and I shot a 61 yesterday.

I'll believe it when I see it :)

    • Commenting ,just before  taking the shot (especially negative thoughts) affect your golf swing. Man I feel bad for you. It was awful. Action with some new rules should be taken for this. 
    • Well, at least you have the par-4s down!  I had a round a few weeks ago at my home course that would have been my second-ever no sixes (first was not at my home course)... played the par-5s in -1 (all pars and a birdie), but two sixes on par-4s did me in for the challenge.  Thankfully I have the badge from two years ago or so, but it'll be nice to have a few more rounds that fit this. 
    • Day 206.  Stop me if you've heard this one before.  15 minutes after work of 6-iron shots (about a half dozen total balls this time).  Same focus:  setup, backswing pace and length.
    • Day 52: COVID-19 day 6/7 short game drills. After that, did a few minutes of rehearsals for my priority piece. Lesson coming up at the end of this week to see where I have gone wrong with this one.
    • Agreed. You always seem to have a brain-fart hole where you even just make bogey on a par-five and you’re toast. I usually am able to do it about 1 in 4 rounds, and it’s usually a bogey on a par-five that does me in. (Or the occasional brain-fart 6 on a par-3)
