Tigers driver and irons are fantastic.

I went through his round shot by shot...interesting to note that his longest three drives were 289, 273 and 272...everything else was in the 250-260 range. Was he hitting a lot of 3 woods, or is he maybe backing off the driver a bit to get the ball in the fairway.....his average driving distance was 255, but also hit 13 of 14 fairways.

Last hole, he drove it 306....I agree on his short distance average though....but his long irons were on fire....maybe his game plan?

I am watching shot tracker.

Well, he's finished anyway so it doesn't matter now. Tiger Woods -6, 255.5 driving distance, 92.86 % driving accuracy, 83.33% GIR! Those are ridiculous! He probably throttled back a little or hit more 3 woods because of that driving distance, but the fairways and GIR numbers are crazy!

And average proximity to hole 23 feet, which is also pretty good

That's very good, specially since (I'm pretty sure) that stat includes missed greens.

Well, I guess this answers it

Q: Do you plan to hit as many 3s off the tee with the conditions? TIGER WOODS: It depends on the wind condition. For most of the day the wind was in the right direction to hit three wood off the tee. I could have hit driver a couple more times but I had to take it over corners. I didn't feel comfortable with it. Ball in hand it's more important to get the ball in play. Even if I have a 3 or 4-iron in the fairway I'd much rather have that an a 7-iron in the rough. It's wet and guys aren't getting it to the green. So I just felt that was a better way of playing the golf course today.

Anyone going? This is going to be my first PGA event I attend - I do kind of regret missing out on the Barclays last year and that Liberty Golf Course...

I was at Liberty National last year for the Barclays and we'll be there again this year for Sunday's round. Last year we watched th practice range for a while (highly recommend this) and then headed to the course around 1:00 and walked it backwards.

It worked out pretty well because we got to see the whole course and everyone in the field and then we made it back to 1/18 in time to settle in and watch the contending groups come home. Following Tiger is a wash. But like I mentioned, if you're walkin the course backward you get ahead of the crowd and can wait in a good vanage point for anyone you want to see. I should've mentioned last year we went on Saturday and they went off both sides of the course due to bad weather.. so perhaps walkin backwards wouldn't have worked out as well with everyone going off th front.

With all of the 3 woods tiger hit off the tee today with success, I am amazed that it took him this long to realize that hitting the 3 wood is a good gameplan? Yes, there are courses and holes where you MUST hit driver but with his driver being all over the place like it is, he should've been hitting 3woods off of the tee all season with resorting to 4i & 5i's from the fairway on his second shot.... Regardless, great round for him today.

I do some divorces. Only once do I remember a client shedding a tear leaving the judge's office after finalization. Most often, they leave with a lighter step and a feeling that a load is off their shoulders.

Thursday's leader is rarely on the leaderboard come Sunday, so it's jumping to conclusions to say that Tiger is back. But maybe he is.

It's on ESPN3 now.

I don't understand who is covering what on the internets. I assume if it's on the Golf Channel, ESPN doesn't carry it, but ESPN3 does. I guess the ESPN coverage is different from that of the Golf Channel.

I guess just check ESPN3 regardless.

Did Tiger change his swing slightly? I just watched the highlights of his round and something looks differant, clubface seems to be more shut/square, maybe foley told his to use a stronger grip?

I got out of class around 1 p.m. today and boy was I surprised when I saw the leaderboard. It's pretty exciting to see Tiger's name at the top again :) at least for Tiger fans it is.

yeah i came into work late today and my coworker ran over as soon as I walked in and was like "YOU SEE TIGER TODAY?!" i was like... huh? Completely forgot today was Thursday too. Pleasant surprise to say the least. Let's just hope he keeps it up.

    • Sure it is, pending the situation.  You have an 18 year old, who doesn't need an parent to co-sign on a loan, being lured into signing for an expensive student loan by a college because they make it seem like its the best thing for them. So, they learn from their mistake, 10-15 years down the line when they realize the students loan debt was a bad idea?  The outcome of this decision isn't something you get instant return on as a learning situation. This isn't like placing your hand on a hot stove.  Why should the biggest mistake 17-19 year olds make be getting hit with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt? That is just asinine thinking really.  Really, colleges are bad faith actors who are swindling people out of money with no regulatory control.  It is even worse since you can not get rid of the student debt in bankruptcy. Guess what, in the end, bankruptcy is a form of loan forgiveness. You can file for bankruptcy, sell off your assets, and the courts decide to void out a good portion of the loan amount in a lot of cases. Except for students loan debt. Which is idiotic. What makes students loan debt so special?  What about this, you get your students loan forgiven, but it hits your credit score like any other bankruptcy? You choose, to work off your students loans, or take a hit to your credit score. I think that is fair.  No one is arguing they are entitled to a degree. How did you jump to that?  I think it is because they can't be for-profit. Also, state governments can control tuition.   
    • Welcome to TST! Start with a local golf maintenance superintendent. See what their expertise is in creating a sand trap and the materials, cost, machinery, etc. They may also have a better idea of what landscape company may have that expertise. Or you may be able to hire out the maintenance staff at the course during the off season. 
    • It’s a bit of a mess some people are in with student loans.  There does need to be some accountability for the decisions individuals make on their education.  That said, I do believe there are a lot of people who are in real trouble with their loans, and there could be ways to help them and future generations that don’t involve debt forgiveness. Perhaps legislate reasonable fixed interest rates (3%)? Limits on the amount of debt a student is allowed to access for undergrad and graduate school? Mandatory high school curriculum on college, careers, cost/benefit?  (my kids actually have a class in jr high that includes this content)  There are also plenty of good paying careers and trades that don’t require much college, if any. A lot of state schools do a better job at keeping costs down for in-state tuition (with it being free in some states).  Choice of school could obviously be a huge savings/debt reduction.  I’m not sure how appropriate legislation is to control private school tuition. Parents, be involved.  If your child decides to pursue a degree in basket weaving… tell them it’s crazy.  If that’s their passion, don’t push college, tell them to just go get a job at a basket company… plus there’s a great golf course in OH right by Longaberger Basket Company! From a personal perspective… My oldest wants to be an elementary school teacher (which could always change).  We’ve had the conversations already that she should be looking at lower cost state schools, as she’s likely not going to make a substantial amount of money if she went that route.  Now, if she wanted to be a CFO or something, it would make sense to consider an MS from a program at the likes of Wharton.  That said, I’m a finance exec and I didn’t take the premier university route.
