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.

    • Calkins: Bryson DeChambeau is unvaccinated, unrepentant — and delusional - Memphis Local, Sports, Business & Food News | Daily Memphian Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart? Then why is it, when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine, he sounds like such a dummy?  Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart? That’s his schtick, isn’t it? He studied physics at SMU. His nickname is the “Mad Scientist.”  He can talk endlessly about training his brain to find the proper balance between the “parasympathetic and sympathetic states.” Turns out that’s bunk. DeChambeau is a dummy. Indeed, he is the worst kind of dummy, the kind that likes to pretend he is smart. You know the type, don’t you?
    • I don't know if it can be repaired and if it's even worth repairing. That said, the metal in the dented area has been severely stretched so it will need to be shrunk to get it back. I think you're on the right track with heat and cold but I see a couple of potential issues. First, I'm not certain a heat gun will heat a small enough area and, second, it actually needs to "bubble" out a bit in the opposite direction of the dent - if that makes sense. I think you can get it to come back some but I don't think it'll "pop" back with the rounded shape it should have. Good luck and please let us know how it goes.
    • Hi Everyone, I haven't responded in a while because I started taking lessons and I wanted to see how they pan out.  I've improved greatly, though I've only been using my pitching wedge and 7 iron so far.  I've used both my blades with the stiff shafts and my "game improvement" irons with regular shafts. and the flight trajectory and distance is the same.   I just thought I'd give an update since I haven't replied in a little while.  Thanks.
    • Give Continental Golf a look.   I've had them repair a driver head that I dropped on the garage floor and they were exceptional.   Facebook Website
