You're right. It's not about TIGER using that as an excuse...it's his blind-followers.

Well not really. I was attempting to start a hypothetical discussion about "what if" Tiger does not get back to form. Of course it ended being about IF he will get back to form (or some even seem to argue that he is on Form already)

Tiger Woods' life was a lie or rather a series of lies. Coming from the municipal track the public enjoyed the strutting and fist pumping and other antics to show the rich country club boys a thing or two. Now that behavior doesn't work with the public so Tiger Woods cannot pump himself up to get the eye of the tiger. He'll never be able to return to his old form. Too many pages have been turned. His swing needs to be Harmonized if they can kiss and make up. He may even have to make a caddy change to progress. he had a great caddy(Stevie) in the days but those days are over

you re right, if you don't think much of someones' behaviour it is difficult to go and work for them on a long term basis. Maybe Tiger ought to ask Fanny, Henrik Stenson's current caddy, for her services in the new year!

If Applby can come back from his horrible tragedy, there is hope for anyone.

I agree with a previous poster...he needs to ink the divorce papers, get his ex and the lost $$$ out of his mind, go to vegas for a stipperfest buffet weekend. Then watch out buddy, he maybe shoot 58....

Uh, before you go making stupid comments like that, get your own facts straight. He's missed one cut so far, probably misses this one for two in the year. Why don't you go check how many cuts most players miss in a year before you make a fool of yourself any further. As for poor finishes, ok, he's had 3 (now 4) outside the top 25 this year. About 75 guys per week finish outside the top 25. My statements stand up to logic, yours don't. He's playing bad golf for himself, but it's fairly average overall.

that

Ok a missed cut, a withdraw that was questionable, and no cut today lucky for him. 142 in Driving accuracy, 111 in GIR, 134 in putts per round, and 193 in total driving does not seem like a average season by anyones standards.

Balance out you selected, out-of-context stats with the following: 4th at the Masters; 4th at the US Open. Do you know any "average", middle of the pack golf pro who regularly posts results like that by the first week of August?

that

Does it really matter if Tiger gets his form back? Everyone should let the game move forward and forget about the past. Enjoy the players that are shooting well, look towards the future and the new talent that is rising. Tiger has his place and right now it isn't in the front of the pack, it is a dismal spot near the back end. I really enjoy seeing new players on the leader board each week, the mighty Tiger was fun to watch but it has gotten a little old. Much like the hype around him getting his game back or not, if it happens then we get to see him make a run at Nicklaus, if it doesn't life still moves on with or without Tiger.

Do you know any average golfer that has won 14 majors. He has been there before and therefore is better able to handle the pressure. That is why he scores better in majors. While the field is freaking out he has been there 14 times before you know. Funny thing is why all you guys defend him till death if you asked him about his play what do you think he would say? I have an idea. By the way, Putting and Gir stats are far from out-of-context, we aren't talking about his ping pong game.

The GolfChannel just showed his "shot highlights" like 4 or 5 times during the broadcast. IMO thats pretty ambitous for a guy thats at the bottom of the leaderboard. On the other hand, i havent seen a single shot of AK or JB Holmes or pretty much 80% of the Top of the leaderboard and how they got there....... The GC (or any other media network in that regard) is like a gambler, he just cant let go.

Exactly !!!

To answer the question thrown out by the title of the thread: If he never regains he form golf will have lost one of the (of not the) best players in it's history, the most polarizing player in pro golf, the most popular player in sports, and the man who has brought more people to playing and watching the game of golf. He has increased the talent pool more than anyone in history and his impact on the game will be missed. Love him or hate him, there is no disputing what he has done for the state of the pro and amateur game of golf.

Tiger is a cheating D bag that hurt the game and derailed the role model of kids all over the world. Lets not forget about his own children. He did not make one mistake. He made many hundreds of them time and time again with no regards for his wife, children, or legacy. I can only hope his game doesn't come back. I was a fan btw. Low life...all i can say.

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.

I kind of agree... (I'm always a looking for a wag-the-dog style conspiricacy)... I feel like he's playing so poorly on purpose right now so that he doesn't even have to consider being a pick for the Ryder Cup. Since he hasn't won any majors this year, he might do the same thing at the PGA Championship as well just to not be hassled with the Ryder Cup. Hard to say that because he's such an alpha male competitor... but I feel like I have to beleive he's playing possum because I love [edit] his golf game [/edit] so much. (There, I said it) :)

I just think he's writing off this year for image reasons, among others. We'll have years and years of Tiger on top. You guys wait and see.

Tiger is almost dead last this week- hopefully he can get it together for the USPGA. He should just skip the Ryder Cup and get ready for next year in my view. You have to blame his management team for not managing his situation in the most efficient fashion.

Well stated. Articulate. Right on the money.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
