I'm so nervous for Tiger.  The longer he waited to get healthy, the higher the expectations got about how he'll play upon his return.  If he purports to be 100%, we will once again, more or less, expe

My grand scheme is apparently of a much larger scope than yours.

You are confusing the hell out of me lol. Certainly it won't matter much for Tiger's career but if he were to win this week after so long off and just him being who he is I think that media will treat

I'm not sure I would use the word "awesome" if he won but it would be much more than a blip. Watch the 19th Hole on Golf Channel-they talk Tiger when there is nothing to talk about. Winning would necessatate a two hour special.

Well he has won the Bridgestone Invitational 7 times in his last 11 appearances there. So, no, it probably wouldn't be that big a deal. As stated above, it'd be a big deal on the Golf Channel for a day or two, no doubt with hysterical claims of "Tiger's back!". But yeah, If he's gonna win anywhere this year, Firestone is probably the one. That said he's obviously gonna be rusty, it's highly unlikely.

I would have been shocked if he wasn't

That just makes sense though. He can withdraw at any time but there are deadlines to enter.

Agreed 100%

It would be bigger to him to win then anyone else. I would admit it would be enjoyable to watch but what it would do for him mentally is where it would be at.

Grand scheme as far as his career and the history of golf I certainly agree with you. For golf right now a Tiger win would be huge. If there is any signal he is back that would impact upcoming tv negotiations as well as the competative landscape but again, your point is well taken.

My grand scheme is all of existence and time. It's not even a blip.

If we're talking about Tiger's career, my guess is he hopes it would be a blip at most on his resumption towards 19.

If we're talking about the PGA Tour, it'll be more than a blip. It'll be fairly big.

If we're talking just about golf, but all of golf, it'll again be a blip. Most golfers don't really care who wins or loses each week on the PGA Tour each week. Some more than others, but overall, the average golfer digests the news, thinks about it for a second or two, and moves on.

It would be awesome to me if he won just because he's Tiger Woods and every time he wins it is awesome...

Winning an event he's won quite often (7 out of last 11 appearances as someone pointed out) might be considered irrelevant if he never does anything more from here on out (7 for 11 or 8 for 12 - potayto potahto - sort of like finishing 4th at the Masters  . . . again), but it would certainly indicate he can get his collective #%^& together for 4 straight days and that hasn't happened in a long while.  If I was a Tiger booster, I'd probably think it was awesome. Just like I'd have thought it was awesome if Daly had won that playoff in 2005. Not a career maker or breaker, but it would have been cool.

I'm not saying I think he will win, but don't you think a ton of people will make a bigger deal out of this if it did happen than most other tournaments he has won? Even though he only placed 4th at the masters, every single headline about the masters mentioned him in it.

    • Welcome to TST.   We're glad you've joined.    I use TheGrint to keep statistics.   
    • Moreover, assuming that it’s considered less safe to hit larger stones, it could be perceived as discouraging a player from taking an action that could make play more safe… There are other instances in the rules that allow for relief from unsafe conditions.  If rocks in a bunker are considered unsafe, then yeah, I was a bit surprised by that limitation.
    • I've been taking some lessons for the past couple months.  My full swing iron and wedge game continue to improve as we have mainly been working on the driver. I am very happy with the irons as far as start lines and curve goes. I feel I am close to a decent golfer with that. The driver continues to be the main challenge for me as it always is. I've been able to put the ball in play for the most part and have a little bit of speed, but path/face and strike consistency has been a struggle. I've worked mainly on some setup, grip and takeaway pieces so far. Miss right now tends to be out of the bottom half of the club. I am getting closer with the takeaway so I will likely try and add a little bit of throw in the DS and see if I can find the center of the face a little more with a higher trajectory. Maybe one day I can even put a fairway wood back in the bag. 😂
    • I am currently using Hole19 though I have just been using it for a scorecard most of this time.  Just started using it a bit more with number of putts and the GIR/up and down/sand shots, but not yet used the shot by shot of fairway, left/right etc
