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 posted two videos of Tiger swinging Driver and 3 wood on this thread... Maybe you can help with the Geometry on that....

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.

    • Played in our club championship this past weekend.  Shot 89 both days from silver tees.  Not that great but an ok tournament score for me and better than I did last year. Played Tuesday and shot 83 off silver which was net 70, so 2 under my cap.  Played combo's Wednesday and had my best round in years with an 80, net 65 and got my first eagle since relocating after retiring.  Also got 3 birdies in the same round.  Played again Friday and shot 84, net 72 with a couple of birdies.  Leaving the driver out of the bag for the last few rounds has certainly helped in the penalty department.  I recently replaced my 3W and the new shaft in it is so stable I feel I can trust it so much more.  Have ordered a new driver shaft with a similar spec but slightly lighter than 3W shaft, so hopefully will be able to have a similar stability with the driver and a few extra yards in the fairway.
    • Find them quite tricky. Hit them like an iron or flatter like a wood? Also my G400 hybrid has no swing weight which helps swing speed but makes me nervous. Also it just dont have a good feeling to it. Proper Woods are so fun to hit. 
    • noticed that myself, never seen him do that half takeback like JT before in his routine... then today at Wyndham, wasn't doing it.  His fidgeting does seem to have gotten worse the last couple years, at least he's not grabbing the towel 10,000 times anymore 😂.   Curious what someone else with far more knowledge on the golf swing thinks though of the commentators remark today, I believe it was Trevor Immelman and Aaron Oberholser who both agreed that if he just switched to playing a cut off the tee, it would solve a lot of his issues.
    • This is a really deep question, possibly with no right answer. I think that usage and accuracy of equipment are the main components in deciding what you want, and price just follows suit. I kind of divide it into three categories: toy (not accurate or not simulators), recreational sim (more accurate, but comes with limitations on certain data and isn't as accurate as the final category), and professional sim. The toy category is comprised of sub 500 dollar options (the measuring device itself) that measure a couple of things. The OptiShot line is the prime example. It only measures the club going over an array of infrared sensors (2 lines of sensors). It can track face angle, speed (kind of), and perceived strike location based on which sensors are triggered at what time. It doesn't even require the use of a ball to get its data, so it can be quite inaccurate. The other options here would be Mevo or SC300, though neither of these truly offer sim capabilities but are more accurate than an OptiShot as they use ball data. The rec sims only have 2 that I can think of. The Mevo+ and the SkyTrak. They operate in very different ways, with the Mevo+ operating on radar and measuring mostly the ball for the first part of flight, and the SkyTrak operating on optics measuring the point of impact, both ball and club. These are both fairly robust devices for the price (probably around 3k each for a full sim) but both have drawbacks and it could be argued over which is better. From my small knowledge about launch monitors it seems that for indoor simulation the optic driven devices excel, but outdoors radar is king, i.e. SkyTrak for indoors and Mevo+ for outdoors. On to the big dogs, the professional sims. Once again there are really two choices at the moment, and like the previous category, one is radar driven where the other is optic driven. Trackman is the premium radar system available and comes in just under 20k USD on price. Big bucks for big performance. The GCQuad (or GC2+HMT) is king for optical launch monitors and can be had for around 12k USD, but with the putting analysis and head monitoring add on, it also comes in just under 20k. Same thing here, gotta pay to play. These prices don't include the bay (mat/projector/screen) so you can really spec them as you please. The GC2 without the HMT upgrade kind of splits the difference between recreational and professional launch monitors, and the price follows suit. A certified preowned unit can be had for around 5500 USD. It really does split the difference in the optical category, being a big step up from a SkyTrak, but comes up short to the GCQuad or if you were to add the HMT unit. I know this is a lot of info, although it's just the basics when it comes to launch monitors/sims. For the actual question: If I had a room with a tall enough ceiling in my house, I would probably go for the SkyTrak at first. One of the biggest reasons is that it has compatibility with "The Golf Club 2019" which is a video game that I have on home computer. That package comes at an up-charge, but between the official courses designed by the game developer, and the many recreated courses done by fans (even has Augusta in there), there are something like 180,000 courses to play. That's a big draw for me.  There is something to be said for course packages/subscriptions and which best fits your interest/needs. I might grow tired of the SkyTrak, or find it lacking in accuracy at some point and then it would be a GCQuad for me. Snce it would be indoors only, I would prefer an optical system.  There is plenty of info online, and plenty of reviews to go along with them. I have only used the GC2s that are in my local golf galaxy, so I don't experience with most of these, but this is most of the info I have gathered. I hope this helps in some way, and if you have any questions, I can try to answer them.
