I wish Tiger would just go back to Harmon.   When he was with Butch he was winning majors by 10 shots.   Enough of this Haney & Foley nonsense.

Have you not been paying attention the last 3 years?.......

Yeah...we've been saving up for a long time, and we're going with our brother and sister in-laws, who are paying for half of the trip. We spent most of the money that we can spend right now on that.

Don't act like a smartass.



Errrr....he wasn't

I was acknowledging that I could see why you weren't going, but since you put it out there, why were you considering going in the first place?

Wouldn't be surprised if he just plays the majors, WGCs, Jack, Arnie, and his events here on out.

Perhaps, but there's no guarantee he's going to qualify for some of these events. He's safe in the majors basically forever, of course. And if he gave up PGA Tour membership, Jack and Arnie would no doubt give him sponsor's exemptions. But he's dropping fast in the world rankings, and while he qualifies for the field at Firestone based on his Ryder Cup membership, he's not a lock for the HSBC and the WGCs beyond that. Most awkward of all, he may not qualify for his own Chevron Challenge tournament, as the 2 special exemptions in the Chevron field must be awarded to players in the world top 50. This was a condition of the event being included in OWGR, something that Tiger apparently lobbied quite heavily for.

I've been wondering what the hell he was thinking there too. If the knee is so messed up he needs to stay out this long and then who knows how much longer it seems it should've been obvious not to play at The Players. Maybe he really made it worse during those 9 holes at The Players. Maybe he just makes really bad decisions .

I think the Players was a wake up call (to him and the doctors) to really give it time (this is the same guy that played with a broken leg).

Why do people keep repeating this? He did NOT play with a broken leg.

Because we really wanted to see Tiger and would have paid the money to. It's rare that the PGA Tour comes this close to where we live. But since he's not playing, we would rather save the money because we really need it right now. We'll go to another tournament for sure, probably next year.

I thought the poster was referring to Tiger playing thru the 2008 US Open with the torn ACL and double stress fracture in his left tibia ... not this year's Players.

I'm really struggling to understand what you mean.   Yes Tiger has won in the last three years but he's been no where near as dominant as when he was with Harmon.   Look at his margin of victory in his wins under Harmon versus those under Haney.    It's not even close.

I agree that he was great under Harmon, but to me it's not margin of victory, it's the number of victories. And I believe he has won more total tournaments under Haney if I'm not mistaken...don't feel like looking it up right now. Either way, if he would have kept Harmon's swing his whole career, he would be injured even worse...especially with that "leg-snapping" thing he used to do for extra power.

Well, I certainly did. Maybe I see it differently. Either way, what's the big deal? This isn't a forum to argue...let's get back on topic.

    • A poll would be nice for this topic. Mine is standard 45.5”.
    • That's why I've got Nickent 3DX Hybrid irons, I have a 10 iron which works for me. Most sets of irons have 8" or more of loft gap between the 9 and the wedge, it's ok if your good enough to hit a half'ish or climb into the Sandiron but I'm not. I'm not too bad hitting a strong 9 8 7 etc but the wedges I'm more likely to hit skinny or fat, I think why there is so many wedges is all about the Money...
    • Above, or you could also make yourself a set of homemade speed training aids, instructions are all over the internet.
    • Day 202.  This evening, I spent ten minutes hitting balls.  I noticed my rehearsal swings weren't getting to where I expected and that my front arm was folding almost at setup.  I wonder if this was the issue yesterday?  I will have to pay more attention going forward.  By the way, I say "the issue yesterday" as if I hit the ball horribly.  Other than the first shot O.B. (which was also my first shot of the day -- range was closed), I played quite well, beating the 10 handicap mark on strokes gained by nearly a full stroke, and if we ignore the opening O.B. (which I maintain wouldn't have happened if I had been able to hit a few balls to warm up -- yes, it still counts of course), I'm under my handicap in SG:D for the day, too.
