I think, almost by definition, a forum is a place where people will argue.

At this point, Tiger should just take the year off.  To me, it's worth it if it gives his knee sufficent time to heal to the maximum it can.

Right now, it seems like he is feeling pressure to come back.  Maybe it's from the sponsors whom are paying him millions which is the only logical reason I can come up with why he even tried to play at the Players.

I don't think the injury is quite that bad--not bad enough to keep him out for the rest of the year. When he's 100%, he's going to come back. There is no time to waste, he can't continue to skip majors. Maybe not playing the British Open would be a good decision, but I'm pretty confident he'll be 100% in time for the PGA Championship.

I would hope so. I just watched highlights on YouTube of him missing 2 and 3 foot putts at the Masters, and I'm here practicing putting in my house and am having absolutely no problem draining them, even with lots of break in them. Those were just terrible. I'm kind of debating with myself whether he should go back to the Scotty Cameron or not.

I like your optimism and certainly hope that you are right

I won't go into the first few sentences (mostly because I can't stop laughing), but it actually seems like, at least lately, he's been putting better with the Nike Method 003.

A very good point.  Just MO of course but when he's in better shape (clinically) he needs to play in a good few events before he has a real shot at a major.  That is, it would be a mistake for him to just focus on the majors and not put in the grunt work.   Never forget, T. is (or was)  a marvelous touch player as well as a remarkable power player - that's what makes him so great - and touch play (in a professional tournament) isn't something you can just switch off and on like that.

I remember the short shots as much as the power plays when I think of watching him play up close at the local track (Torrey Pines).  He had it all, and will need to get essentially all of it back to win big again.

Not by much, and I'm sure of that. I have a sunroom with very thin, fast carpet, and from settling over the years, the floor is slanted in different ways. Lots of break in the putts. More break than in the ones he missed in the final round of Augusta. I'm just saying, those were putts he should have drained easily--he used to be the best putter on Tour.

Yeah, I agree. I would have never thought he would have switched to a heeled putter, always thought he'd stick with the classic blade, but whatever works. I really don't think it's that much of the putter's fault, I think he just needs to work on his putting. He did say he had changed his putting stroke slightly.

Which way does the grain grow in your sunroom?  Toward the setting sun?  You know, if Tiger spends his time working on his putting in your sunroom, he probably will putt much, much better at next year's Masters.

Joking aside, until you have tried to make a 3-4 footer when it counts , you won't know how difficult they are.  I am continually amazed at how good the guys on tour are at sinking these "easy" putts.

    • Ha. He has always seemed as a doofus, and every now and then he confirms the suspicions with stuff like this.
    • Great post here even if it is from 2015! So I guess I would revise my consistency goal to something like "improve my poor shots and reduce the dispersion in shot results, in both distance and direction".
    • +2 on a quick 9 today. Pretty easy course although no roll in the PNW off season. Used only 4 clubs for a fast getaway from the house and a bit of a challenge. Rangefinder would have been useful.
    • As the calendar year draws to a close thank you all for putting up with me, and allowing me into your insights. The golf posting season is now ended but play continues on for my second winter (it is awesome!). This year has been good for me although I still have things I would like to correct. I am in awe of all of you that work diligently on your swings. If I ever find an instructor like my first, and find enough time to add practice I will join you in that quest. For now I love to play too much. Advance Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!
