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.

    • DAY 6: practiced tempo with Orange Whip Trainer (10 min).
    • I’ll join this foursome - my timing is flexible and this will allow me to drive back east after the lesson on Saturday. Will join you for dinner on Friday as well. My wife / sometime caddy might also join. Thanks for arranging @StuM!
    • Why did the employer require a test that’s not even recommended by the CDC? Not really ball busting but this is part of a problem we’re facing way too often as physicians. Employers, schools, all making up their own protocols without knowing what they’re talking about. I get your ‘wanting to know’ but know what? Like you said, it’s just a number that means nothing at this time. It’s also possible that insurance wouldn’t cover it as it’s not medically necessary.
    • Lab Corp has a "Semi-Quantitative" test that I'm considering taking.  I'm a leukemia survivor, had a bone marrow transplant, I have GVHD, and I'm on immune suppression medication (tacrolimus, sirolimus, prednisone).  Some of my Dr.'s patients in the same situation as me got no response from the vaccine I took the qualitative test and I have antibodies, but I have no idea how protected I am.  I recently got the Moderna booster. The Lab Corp Semi-Quantitative test gives no indication of what is a good response.  It's just a number.  I don't see the point of taking the test if there is no way to interpret the number.  Still I want to take it, I can at least compare it to the number my neighbor got (his employer required the test).
    • I’m surprised you held onto them for 20 years. They would have ended up lost of in the trash long ago if mine.
