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.

Oh ... kay.

Maybe the greens at Augusta are a bit different than the carpet in your home?

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

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.

    • My school just announced similar last night:  masks for all, regardless of vaccination status, when indoors on campus, with some exceptions like if I'm alone in my office.  Students who plan to return for the fall term must either be vaccinated or have an "approved exception or medical exemption," although that's been announced for a while.  Tomorrow is four months since I got my second shot, so I'm good to go as far as that goes. Edit to clarify:  I have no problem with the policy.  "I'm good to go as far as that goes" was my saying I don't have all my lesson plans for the term already in order, that sort of thing.  
    • My wife has a cousin whose wife is completely off the rails.   I mean it’s a planned pandemic, micro chips and Bill Gates are behind it….or worse.   She has had so many posts taken down on FB for the misinformation and crapola that she spreads.   She, albeit briefly, was posting about how the vaccine gets in your blood and makes you magnetic.   So yes, she believed that you could stick keys to your head because of the vaccine. kind of makes deluding yourself you can make that forced carry (when you can’t) seem sane….
    • The anti-vaxers have a ton of excuses.  I have heard many of them.  I have an unvaccinated friend (yes, I even have stupid friends) who quite often "cherry-picks" articles from alternative publications that support his view and he texts them to me.  Anything to support a bad habit.  Smoking is good for you...
    • It would be nice to watch Covid slowly just fade away as vaccinations increase. Unfortunately the dopes who have refused to get it will dream up some other reason why Covid faded. Or we’re in for another lockdown as Delta and other variants surge and they’ll say, ‘ see..what good is the vaccine any way.’ Again, profound ignorance.
    • Birdied #16 at Quail Brook today. Pulled my drive onto the 15th tee box and got to my ball where a couple of my friends were waiting to tee off, ready to heckle me. Had about 90 yards to the flag and hit a partial GW to 2'. The ball mark was 2' short of the hole from where I was and the ball ended up 2' past it. I don't know if it had a chance to go in; it probably took a hop and spun. I would have never heard the end of it if I didn't hit a good shot there.
