I was looking for some comments from Phil until I heard he (understandably) didn't want to the media. Phil has stormed off the course w/o talking to the media more times than I remember this year. He's usually the best at talking after a disappointing day on the course.

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.

yea, but I dont even think that hole was 320, it was very short for a par 4 and everyone was going for it. It was reachable with his 3 wood no doubt. I was thinking he should of hit his 3 wood. His playing partners all went for it and though they didnt hit the green, they all got birdie, but honestly I think the boo's played with his mind a bit and made him doubt his game plan and screwed up his second shot

Bogey on a 291 yard par 4, such a waste.

Man, on a 291 yard par-4 without a big gap in the middle, I feel as though I lost a shot when I bogey it. I can only imagine how Tiger feels.

And yet, Tiger spoke to the media after Bridgestone. What's with it?

yea a 290 yard par 4 and he lays up. The past two days he has been striping his 3 wood about 290 in the middle of the fairway, nearly 100% fairways hit in 36 holes and he lays up with an iron. Not the right play to me.

yeah but the hole was uphill and the green was surrounded by rough and bunkers so i dont think he could have reached with a controlled 3-wood (what he's been hitting all the time) as he'd have had to land it on the green, i still think he should have gone for it but with the way he played the hole he still gave himself a very makeable birdie putt, he just 3 whacked it

Source: Interview with Tiger Q. Talk about 5. A lot of guys trying to go right for the green. You laid up on that and bogeyed on that hole. Talk about that one. TIGER WOODS: It was a tough tee shot for me. I had to take something off and hit it in the air. Not an easy thing to do with a driver. Pin was back. Normal drive. But with the pin off, I had to take something off of it and cut it. I didn't feel comfortable doing it. I laid up and trusted my wedge game and fortunately I 3-putted.

I'm "fortunate" that way too a lot of the time.

Casey, Donald and Rose keeping it pretty tight right now in their jostle for the Captains Pick.

Looks like you can stick a fork in Woods for this tournament. Just snap-hooked his tee shot at #1 so far left that he had to take a penalty and hit another tee shot. He made triple bogey to fall back to -1 for the tournament. He might not even make it into the next tournament of the FedEx Cup if he keeps this kind of poor play going. At the moment he is projected to be 102nd in the standings, which would knock him out of the playoffs.

Holy crap!!! What a shot by Rickie Fowler.

Haven't been following the tournament much but the driving distances seem to be way down. Also, surprised how Rickie was the only one whose reached the green in 2 on 17.

    • I'm watching this video and he mentions "he got himself a little more out onto the front of his feet" and "he's got himself more centred in to back of his feet" in the other comparison https://youtu.be/S8dkDx8YVkI?t=242  Does that mean he puts more weight on the front of his feet than the back?   One more question: how do you create more space for the right arm during impact as mentioned here? He's more tipped over which allows this , I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8dkDx8YVkI?t=280 Would reducing how much your right forearm can rotate clockwise help with this, duringthe end of your backswing?
    • Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,   ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone ,  sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense) If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))
    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
