After Dustin just bombed a driver, Adam Scott grabbed the driver and started checking it out. Taylor Made must be salivating right now. :-P

Tiger's putter looked very good today.  Hopefully he can take advantage of his morning tee time tomorrow.

Side note - Tiger flew past some greens today. We all know how hard it is to find your exact distances again after time away from playing so I don't know if that's just rust OR caddie error?

He said afterwards that he was hitting it flush, he just wasn't controlling his distance very well. IIRC he didn't give a reason.

He said it was because he hadn't played out there in a while. Could take some time getting used to the distances on a course in a different part of the country.

this was the only portion of his game that he was "allowed" to work on during his time off. would imagine that has something to do with it.

tiger was hitting his irons just a little too far, I think this happens to a lot of people when they jump back into competition...I know it happened to me recently.  I think there is just a hint of adrenaline in a competitive situation and you have to adjust to it.  Some of his best shots sailed over the green and put him in some bad spots so all in all a very successful round to say the least.

I'm excited to see what happens the next few days, he was like his old self out there today.

I agree, but I also think not having Williams helping him with club selection was a factor.

why didn't anyone blame Williams when Tiger missed the green before? Tiger can't possibly miss a green! seriously, though, i think caddies have this whole "this is how far away you are from the hole" thing down pretty well. he's only been swinging a club for a few weeks. Foley nor Bell nor Tiger himself probably knows how far he's consistently hitting a club.

edit: my concern would've been Williams green reading abilities. for today at least, it seemed like Tiger was fine in that regard. i think there are drawbacks to letting Williams go, but club selection/distances aren't, especially at a point when Tiger is going through swing changes and just now getting the hang of the changes (at least that's what Tiger is saying).

I really do not think these Pros need a caddy to tell them which club to hit and how far to hit it,  both caddy and golfer are present when the notes are jotted down during practice so I am sure all the caddy is doing is refreshing the golfer memory.

Haha yea, thought that was funny..I mean, he must have tried out an R11 before, right?

While most pro's probably don't need caddies, you often see them consulting with their caddie about club selection.  Good caddies know how to read their pro and probably track and remember their distances better than the pro does.  I'm not saying that Tiger hit every green with Williams, just was throwing out there that Williams might have provided better input on which club to hit given his years with Tiger.

    • Played RiverBend from the whites with my son.  Course fairways were decent, greens were very rough.  We were the first out at 10 as we have had freezing temps and the thaw from last weekend’s ice and snow is about complete.  Shot 92 (51 / 41).  The 51 was a battle of missed hits and too many double bogies.  The back side 41 had 3 pars and 6 bogies for a 41 (off a par of 35).  Rough greens - they are trying to let them “grow” in where they are battling bare spots, makes for lumpy-bouncy putting.  Still to play 18 in late January with temps in the low 50’s and no wind with my son was a blast! 
    • Day 34: 1/25/2022 I felt like changing things up a bit today. So, I did speed sticks. I have to say.... I felt pretty slow.  Then I looked at the Swing Speed Radar and it confirmed it... I was slow. 
    • Finished out last year shooting just under 90.  Finished 2020 about 10 strokes higher, so yes I am doing better.  Had the best front nine ever last week with a 1 over 37.  This lets me know my game is getting better.  Goal for 2022, will be to “average” 9 GIR/nGIR.  This means the approach game has to vastly improve.
