I may be jumping the gun, but Tiger is pretty much back...if he gets his wedges under control....he's completely back.

I think this will be the start of a good come back for Tiger. If he wins this, it will be a HUGE confidence booster for events to come. Likewise, in a press conference, I loved that he had the confidence and cajones to say he would absolutely beat Nicklaus's record. That right there makes me believe that his confidence and borderline arrogance will carry him for awhile.

I tried the XM radio for a while, but they pretty much talked about everything except what was going on at the course.

Oh well, TV coverage is on now.

I've seen Tiger miss those short putts before... this is not the time to get bold.
Bogey on a 291 yard par 4, such a waste.

Wow, Woods just missed a 2 footer for par. 3-jacked from 12 feet. That is a short par 4, which means he basically gave two shots to the field. Big mistake there.

This is just about the worst he could shoot today while hitting all the fairways.

The stats and conditions would indicate a good score, but he was not able to capitalize the round. A couple of costly mistakes also hurt his scorecard.

I liked the part where Tiger missed his approach from the rough (which could be something as simple as the clubhead rotating in the grass), and Nick Faldo talking about how his belt was raising when he comes through the ball. He suggested Tiger should try to rotate on the backswing by keeping the hips level and rotate on the downswing keeping the hips on the same level. He specifically said the right hip should not move up, but rather down on the backswing.

talk about a shitty 9 holes...seemed to be on a good role on the front nine but his play on the back nine leaves for a lot to be desired. Hopefully he'll get his game workin again by tmrw. He's not TOO far off from leader so he can still recover.

By the end of this round he'll probably be 7 behind the lead. He shot himself in the foot today big time. 9 holes is all it took.

well he messed up at that par 3 by hitting it way over. Then on the next hole was that reachable par 4, 320 yards or so and he got boo'd for laying up with an iron and I think thats were it started going south. He should of went for the green, even if he did miss the green, he is a really good chipper and would be close for a birdie,

Or he could of pushed/sliced it way right and had a terrible shot at the green. He was playing within himself....it was the right play, it was his second shot that screwed him up, not the first.

His wedges were bad all day and so was his putting. Long irons were fantatsic

Ugh, what a shame. At least he's only 4 back, which is surmountable if he can put together one of those killer rounds that seemed to be out there for a handful of players. With 2 days left, he could even just plod his way there with a little luck from the guys ahead of him.

Hopefully the bad 9 doesn't get into his head too much, and hopefully he's at the chipping green right now......

While his wedge shot at the short par-4 wasn't very good by his standards, he still had a 12 footer for birdie. 3-jacking from there was pathetic though. THAT is where it really went south for him.

    • Four rounds to catch up on: 7/20: Finally got my bro out to Croasdaile to play. I shot 51-44 from the blues that included a nine on the 9th hole. Didn’t putt well: a four putt and four three putts. My bro shot 59 on the front, which isn’t bad at all for him since the front is the tougher side out there, but he played awful on the back. 7/23: Back to the home course for the next three rounds. This one was a nice little 87 where I made a quad on the par-3 third and a triple on 14, but played well apart from that, including back to back birdies on 9 and 10. 7/30: I played the day after we got back from vacation and shot a pretty poor 96. Made a nine on the second hole and it just went downhill from there: 49-47 were the final numbers. 8/1: The best round of the four: shot 40 on the front with no doubles, then a 44 on the back which included a triple on 13 and a double on 17. Total is 84, which I’m super happy with. Also dropped my handicap from 13.8 to 13.5. I’m probably gonna play tomorrow as well, so looking forward to that!
    • Adam, you always give great advice. May I make one suggestion? Use a dry erase marker rather than a sharpie. Much much easier to clean off the club face. 🙂
    • Yea, not something you can decide on your own. Someone can say all the benefits of a single plane swing, but it might not work for you at all. 
    • Damn Kevin…I’m not even an instructor but I certainly think you’re doing yourself a disservice in all this pondering and video searching. Not to be an ass but you're all over the place. You’re building a house and analyzing the kitchen sink before even having the foundation poured. Have a good instructor give you a priority piece then focus on that and that alone. You’ll find much better progress that way. Just my two cents.🙂
    • Both, I'd like to know if there's biomechanical advantages in having the hands higher at the top of the swing and if that was the case I'd see if I could incorporate it into mine & if it would be suitable
