Mickelson- I just feel like he's going to come out of his funk this week

Watney- Bad finish but still played very well last week

Tiger- Played pretty well at Doral but who knows where his mind will be this week

I want Tiger to win also. I'm sick of the commentators talking about his sex scandal every time he plays.  Magic Johnson slept with 1000's of woman while he was married. He slept with woman at halftime. I don't get why Tiger gets all this scrutiny. Is it because of the game he plays? I think it's time for Tiger to play the race card to get people off his back. Magic cheats on his wife gets HIV and is on Oprah 10 times a year to be praised for I have no idea what. They were both huge role models. I honestly think it's because of the sport they play. I bet when he does win it will take him a while to get another one and they will continue to say its because of stress from his scandal and the win was just a good week.

My boss called me today and said he might have to tickets for Saturday's round and asked me if I wanted to go. Uuuhhh, hell yea! I've been a couple times before but it was years ago when it was stilled called the Nestle'. I'm really hoping he can get the tickets because seeing just how great these guys play is almost surreal.

They did stop talking about it.  About  a year ago, in fact.  Maybe it's you who needs to move on.

And you suggest that he should play "the race card"? That would be bad enough if he were black, but he isn't. Dear oh dear.....

I haven't heard them mention Tiger's sex scandal in a very long time.

I agree with you...but, when did Tiger stop being black?

OK maybe they don't say sex scandal. They say personal life aka sex scandal. My bigger point was the treatment of two black men who play different sports, golf = rich, basketball = poor. Magic = HIV hero, Tiger = man whore. I guess I can't make that point because you believe he isn't black. Do you believe we just elected our first black president? I guess you would say technically no.

Personal life =/= sex scandal.

My picks last week were way off.  I guess I don't know the courses well enough to predict which player fits the course.  I'll go with Gary Woodland for two in a row.

    • A little status update 30 rounds into the season:  - Taking small steps in the right direction. Index currently on 10,3 and I will probably see the "9" sometime this month. Positive trend.  - Season best so far is 83 from the yellows (6350 yards). Separate best 9s is +1 on the front 9 and +3 on the back 9, so it should be possble to stitch a sub 80 round together with good flow and focus through 18 holes. I still have never played 2 good 9 nine hole stretches in a row in my life, so this still might not happen. I have shot rounds in the 70s 3 times from the front tees this year though (5300 yards) - Still have a long way to go with the driver. The misses are fewer, but I still hit way too few fairways with the big dog (30-40%) - Just a question of time before the eagle-goal is achieved. I've given myself some chances on hole 1, 9 and 10 so far this season, and more will come.  I feel my game from 150yards and in has improved a lot this year, while my long game is still very inconsistant. My putting has also been ranging from brilliant to weak (26-40 putts). Focus is something that I still need to work on, and I still let a couple of bad shots influence my confidence in several situations. 
    • Visiting Florida from NY.  Played Indian River Preserve.   Shot a 93,  best of my year so far.  Problems off the tee with driver on most for whatever reason, snap hooks for 175 yards, but stayed in play.   Got 2 birdies, both par 5 (only 2 tee shots with Driver that were good).   Both I was on in 2 with Driver then 3H.  Then Driver 3w on 18th hole, which I lipped out the 15 foot eagle putt for a tap in birdie.    Also had 32 putts which is great for me.  Slowly getting better at putting by getting the speed right 
    • Still learning I guess. I didn't know that you don't get the fedex-bonuses for invited players, like Higgo. Got the longshot winner, but no bonus, kind of an anticlimax....  Congratulations to Bunker Jon for taking down the segment.   👏
    • I can see if golf buddy is interested. My son is getting married the weekend of the 31st and I do have some club events that month.
