It's funny how underrated Westwood is. Especially in the US...

I disagree. I think that Lee is neither overrated nor underrated, which is exemplified by his 2 worldwide wins that last 2 years.

It's actually 3 wins and over a dozen other top3 finishes. Including 4 close calls in majors. And this includes being injured for a good few months this year (Did not play in the PGA championship for example)

You are correct, 3 wins, but I still don't think that makes him underrated.

Westwood is a fantastic player, who really deserves his position as the " number one golfer on the planet".
As for not winning a major, trust me his day is coming.
I don't think tiger is going to get back to his best any time soon, plus the other players don't fear him any more.
I think kaymer will knock Westwood off the top within a couple of months.
There are a lot of players hungry for that top spot, so it should be great viewing for us mere mortals.

i agree that he is consistant but he dosent stand out to me as much as tiger woods

There's a difference between your favorite golfer, and the golfer who has played well enough to earn world #1. I liked Jack Nicklaus growing up, and was impressed by Greg Norman's game-doesn't mean they're still "number 1 in my eyes." Bottom line-Tiger will be number 1 again when he earns it, which I believe he will sometime next year.

Tiger fanboyism is weird.

Tiger fanboyism is weird.

Indeed it is, but it does make for entertaining reading sometimes.

But you yurpean types - and I do realize that Greece is not yet a major golfing power yet like Ireland, England or Italy - you recall do you not the full meaning of the word hubris ? You'd better start appeasing the *olfing *ods in whatever way works for you, or 7 years of golfing awaits and TW returns triumphant.

Your a funny American , great post man.

If tiger wins this week and west wood comes tied for second tiger gets back to number one, it's looking good for the tiger apart from one thing " westy is leading in south Africa" I can see them both winning this week and westy holding his rightful place as world no1. Any way some great tv for the weekend, and since I'm snowed in, right in front of the tv I'll be .

Westwood has this week wrapped up imo. Pity he is reaching full fitness at the end of the season

He played flawless golf today , it was fantastic to watch, he has an extra bounce in his step, extra confidence, must be from wearing his number one crown.

I agree the only way he looses this one is if he breaks his arm.

    • Hello and welcome to TST. First a suggestion, a request really, please use paragraph breaks so it’s easier on the eyes to read.😉 We have a great section here called ‘Members Swings’ where you can post videos of your swing and get some great free advice. You need to find your priority piece first. Rather than long irons or driver, you need to focus on specific areas then find the very specific piece to work on. 
    • 95 today at Harbour Pointe from the whites.  My son was my playing partner, so we were more in the test and see mode than really tying to shoot our best scores.  I also pulled the old Wilson Killer Whale driver out as I hit it well at the range last Saturday.  To be honest this was a mistake on my part.  Was all over the fairway - left, right, middle.  Never really knew where it was going to go.  The G400 went back in the bag when I got home.  Scoring wise nothing to report.  Putting was okay, total of 37 (a lot of "long" first putts, but thankfully very short 2nd putts).  Approach work was better, but due to the craziness of the driver I spent most of the round working out of tough lies from errant tee shots to where almost every hole was trying to get up and down for par....scrambling golf for sure.  
    • The old adage "Think long, think wrong" definitely applies.  There is no time to think as now you are completing the swing.   For me, I try to be quiet in mind instead focusing on repeating the proper swing mechanics.  
    • Day 2 - Worked on the Rhythm/Tempo part of Day 8 from the 30-day practice plan and discovered that my ideal  is 82 bpm.
    • Day 113 (19 Oct 21) - Played 18 today.  Worked on alternative approach scenarios as my son was working on the same as well.  He did an excellent job on the last hole.  A par 5 where he was about 270 out after the tee shot.  He wanted to be about 125 - his PW distance for the approach.  Took his 8i and played it almost to the yard as he was 120 from center of the green for his approach.  It was a great day where we both worked on course management and getting comfortable not just grabbing a driver on every tee or thinking that going long was always the best answer.
