phil needs to get rid of that blade putter, i know he cant put with anything else but everyone I know that used a blade putter is SOO inconsistent with putting. They have flashes of brilliance but are known to miss 5 footers. I would know I used one in the past

That and his driver....

Yeah, Phil's problems stem from the type of putter he uses. Phil is phil, he loses interest when he doesn't start well, simple as that.

The field is fortunate right now. Woods hasn't missed a fairway or green during this second round but he is only -1. Looks like he just stiffed it to 5 feet at the 18th, but anytime he's hitting fairways you have to think he could go lower than he is right now. On the 17th, for instance, he was 30 yards short of the green in the intermediate rough after two shots. It was a pretty straightforward pitch shot, but looked like he caught it heavy and didn't get any spin on the ball. It ran 25 feet past the hole. Wasted birdie opportunity for him. He looked pretty ticked off after the chunky chip shot.

Kevin Streelman lit it up today. He shot -8 on the round and -6 on the front nine (his back nine). Very impressive comeback from shooting +1 yesterday.

Yeah, Tiger blew a pretty good opportunity on 17 (the only hole I saw on the online coverage, since they're covering all the groups). Excellent 3W tee shot, fair 3W second shot to first cut, then blew it past to a makable putt for birdie, but I thought (and from his reaction, he thought) he should have been a lot closer. Still, I think that sort of thing will clear itself up if he can just keep hitting the short grass from the tee.

Apparently it ticked him off because he stiffed a 180-yard iron shot at 18 and made birdie. You're right about the fairways. As long as he keeps hitting fairways, he will be very tough to beat this week simply because he won't make too many bogies from the fairway.
I hope tiger wins this, but on the other hand....

The divorce was just the official end of their marriage, but they weren't living together for the last 9-10 months anyway.

He's had his time off, the divorce just got official this week, the marriage has been over for a long time. Like he said, it's his job, it's what he do.

The putter wasn't the problem today. He hit something like 55% GIR and a little over that for fairways. Like somebody else said, Phil seems to lose his focus very easily. One great shot can send him on a run of 4 birdies in 6 holes, but if not he will be all over the place.

yea Im not really talking about lately. Im just making a general statement about his putter. Those putters arent the easiest to play with, most people wouldnt be able to putt with them. They are very good for long putts but the short ones can be sketchy.

    • Ha. He has always seemed as a doofus, and every now and then he confirms the suspicions with stuff like this.
    • Great post here even if it is from 2015! So I guess I would revise my consistency goal to something like "improve my poor shots and reduce the dispersion in shot results, in both distance and direction".
    • +2 on a quick 9 today. Pretty easy course although no roll in the PNW off season. Used only 4 clubs for a fast getaway from the house and a bit of a challenge. Rangefinder would have been useful.
    • As the calendar year draws to a close thank you all for putting up with me, and allowing me into your insights. The golf posting season is now ended but play continues on for my second winter (it is awesome!). This year has been good for me although I still have things I would like to correct. I am in awe of all of you that work diligently on your swings. If I ever find an instructor like my first, and find enough time to add practice I will join you in that quest. For now I love to play too much. Advance Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!
