If you combined Tiger's mental makeup and work ethic with Daly's raw talent, you'd have BY FAR the greatest golfer of all time.  But it's an imperfect world -- with Tiger still in his "funk" following getting busted and Daly in his ever-changing "funk" that is his life.

John Daly has not been on the leaderboard for a loooong time... The last I saw him on TV was on 2006 Tournament in San Francisco Harding Park Golf course.....  He was playing a playoff against Tiger WOODS and he lost.


FWIW Daly was among the leaders at the British last year.

Tiger doesn't release a lot of the specs of his golf clubs, so it's hard information to find. Just Google it. If you really want to figure it out, find a picture of Tiger Woods and do some geometry.

I did check the leaderboard thank you very much, and by doing that I saw Daly's first round 66 which put him in a tie for third.

You've been given your answer several times.

A rudimentary search will tell you that Tiger plays a driver shaft of between 43 and 43 and a half inches.  Like most players, it is under the "standard" driver length and closer to driver lengths of a couple of decades ago.  A bit over current three wood length.

You have to stop yelling at people by typing in capitals. And demanding things. No please, no thankyou. nothing.  I can see that English is not your first language, so I'll make allowances for that.

Have a look at your threads - I'm not quite sure what you are trying to achieve.

When you make claims that are ridiculous or that can't be backed up, and people respond to them, don't get angry becuase people have moved away from your original comment.

You got your answer very early on. It is common knowledge amongst keen golfers.

Tiger is not "the best".  As far as driving goes (with a driver), I would seriously struggle to name many players he's better than.

At his best he is fantastic to watch.

At the moment he is exciting some of the time.

Yesterday's round in Dubai is a perfect example.

One of the things that has been proven over the last two years is that golf can be very exciting to watch without Tiger Woods. Last year's Fall Series was incredible.

He probably changes the length from time to time too, he's used several different shafts the last few years. In other words, there is not definitive answer.

I always thought it was The Open Championship, but what do I know, being from Texas.

Actually, I just picking on you a bit because I think pointing that out was being a bit picky.

The Open, The Open Championship, or The British Open--is my favorite tournament. It has history, great courses, and with the rise in the quality of international golf, probably the strongest field of any of the majors.

One other comment relating to this thread, which is also off the subject.

One poster mentioned Tiger heading to the gym in his workout gear.

Working out is a good idea, but Tiger would be better off if he had never lifted anything heavier than a driver.

My apologies I think I was been alittle picky, its just one of the very few things I have a habit to grind down on.

    • I'm not really sure why you quoted me there and then wrote this. None of this has anything to do with anything I wrote in this thread. The next time I write the word "tragic" here will be the first.
    • And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions.  If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse?   +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow.   Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them.  Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers.  I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident?   I don’t agree that it will save that many lives.  I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor.  Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect.  And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired.  An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system.  So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years.   Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain?  Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles.   Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least.   Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit.  With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be.   I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.  
    • A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
    • Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.  Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot.
