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

really? i'm not sure i can agree with that. yeah, you've got some old guys who could benefit from winning a half recognized event that doesn't get you into any majors or wgc's. on the other hand you'v

Tiger's old swing wins at Tiger's old favorite stomping ground with Tiger's old caddy.

anyway else get annoyed with the constant barrage of useless "quips" from the crowd? the dudes constantly screaming "get in the hole" are just morons and have the slight twang of accent that ma

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.

    • They have announced that there will be no cheering!
    • Yesterday. Found myself very close to the lip of a greenside bunker, on very firm sand. Couldn't aim at pin, but about 10' to the left of it.  Barely opened up the 58/10 degree wedge, smacked it into the "sand" about 1.5 ball widths behind ball. It popped out, hit the green and rolled out about 3', ending up directly downhill from pin. And for a change I made the putt.
    • Another league night that I just didn’t play well. Won a skin on 1 with a par, net birdie. Threw one away at 2 with a 3 putt. By hole 5 and 6 the wait between shots was so bad I lost interest. Course was jammed with people... and when pace gets that slow I lose interest. Didn’t keep my own score from that point. If my partner was in for a par I didn’t finish out or made runs at birdie and picked up etc. I did manage a birdie and skin at 8, with no handicap stroke. Partner and I won the week by 2 and now sit way ahead of the standings. We have 2x the points of 2nd place. I’m 3 skins ahead of the next closest player for skins. Not playing great lately tho but doing enough to get by.
    • I can't wait to hear about them.  I'm probably not getting new hybrids this year, but if I did, these would be near the top of my consideration list.  Please let us know how they are.
    • I read something recently in either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine and it listed I think the top 50 players and what they played for irons.  It was a blades/ combo set/ whatever set type of article.  I showed that they were very few players playing a full set of MB’s.  If I recall correctly, most were gaming some type of combo set.   Clubs like the TM p770 are just so good now, their benefits are more attractive to better players.
