After that first pull-hook, it seems like he's been doing well enough. Not making birdies, missed more fairways and greens, but still making pars.

Agreed. They shouldn't even have shown any of his shots.

I went to a random range on the way home from a trip and all they were talking about was tiger. I would say then the tv is covering what most want to hear about.

I realize that he's still the number one player in the world and he's great for the ratings, but it does seem a little unfair though to all of the players ahead of him who are obviously playing better and not getting any TV time.

Great sentiment, but completely untrue. Virtually everyone ahead of him got TV coverage, and the leaders get covered as much as they do in any tournament. Why do they show Tiger when he's out of contention, between showing shots of the leaders? Because he's won 70+ times including 14 majors.

No........ not surprised. Just bored with everyone drooling over the "mesiah"

And I'm bored with people making comments about how they're tired of seeing him on TV. He was a small part of the coverage - a very small part - and enough people want to see him that the networks show him. End of story.

Fast forward if you don't want to see him. If you're watching live, then trust me, it ain't the Tiger coverage that's boring you.

Why drool all over Tiger for a large part of the coverage when he is not within sniffing distance of the lead? I thought everyone liked seeing good golf. Is it a "man crush" thing........ or do people like watching train wrecks?

The number of commercials are mind numbing, especially towards the last hour, when there are fewer players to cover.

Looking at the forum subjects and no one is talking about the US Amateur. I was switching between both and found myself watching the US Amateur more.

a) He wasn't a "large part" of the coverage by any stretch of the definition.

b) He's the world's best and has won 70+ and 14 majors. It's that simple. Never mind the below reason...
I thought everyone liked seeing

He shot -3 in about five holes while being covered by CBS. Pretty good golf, no?

    • I know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....  
    • Day 284: Worked a bit on my priority pieces with a new drill to feel the left leg push back. Then worked on tempo.
    • Ugh. They better keep him away from tall buildings for a few days…
    • Broke 90 today (from the white tees) with an 88.   Most consistent round ever...now to turn the 5's to 4's and the 6's to 5's....
    • Day 40 (05 Aug 21) - Solo round today as the rain had relented.  Course was pretty open as there was only one person ahead and no one behind.  Allowed me to be not rushed as I played 18 at the local course.  A good day with the putter which I did have two putters with me - my old DF992 and the Odyssey White Steel 5.  As I had time, I would set up a second ball once on the green, play out the original ball for the score and then putt the other ball with the other putter from the same distance.  Found I am much more accurate with the White Steel 5, so in the bag it stays.
