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.

    • Day 38-41 Continued to work on rotation and weight shift drills through the middle/end of the week. Today I took my mom golfing as a belated Mother's Day gift. Also brought my son along for his first round ever. Played a par 3 course. Shot one-under. Which I'm pretty proud of given that it was a SLOW round with a 5 year old. Struck the ball really well, and putting was solid. All the work I put in putting has definitely paid off. Back to the days when I was automatic from 5 feet and in.  Was really proud of the little guy. He didn't once show any signs of mental fatigue or boredom. He even got a round of applause from a group of 8 guys after his tee shot on the last hole.  And no, we weren't holding up play. This particular course has added a soccer type course that runs in tandem with their traditional 9-hole par 3 course. Kind of interesting and hadn't seen anything like that before. Essentially 18 holes with a soccer ball. Where the "hole" is essentially a 55 gallon drum embedded in the ground. 
    • Day 126: Some priority piece practice and then a bit of short game practice. 
    • Day 163 (21 May 22) - left foot, skin breakdown again. Did some lag drills with the putter using heads up technique.  
    • Day 76.  Qualifier (stroke play) for my club's match play tournament.  Shot an 86 and qualified    Also in happy news:  my putting.  No, I didn't make many more putts, but I did miss in a lot better places.  My missed putts from long range are closer and my missed putts from 3-15' are typically going past the hole but leaving me with a tap-in (instead of 1-2').  I think this is a result of more putting practice and means the skill is improving because my misses are smaller.
