BMW Championship Discussion Thread: PGA Tour Playoffs

Recommended Posts

mvmac    1,759

Just two weeks after Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods were paired for the first time in a PGA Tour event, they’ll be back at it once again.  The only players with three PGA Tour victories this year, they will compete together during the first two rounds of this week’s BMW Championship based on their current FedEx Cup standing.  With players in threesomes off two tees for the opening 36 holes, McIlroy (No. 1 on the points list) and Woods (No. 3) will be joined by Nick Watney (No. 2) at Crooked Stick.

With a victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Sunday, McIlroy further extended his lead in the Official World Golf Ranking, while Woods remained in third after a solo third-place finish.

Here's the full article on Tiger and Rory

Quote:

“He's a great kid and it's great to be around him,” Woods said. “What an amazing talent he really is. I just hope that everyone just lets him grow and develop as a player, because it's going to be fun to see over the next 20 years how this kid's career is going to pan out.”

“I feel every time I've played with Tiger, he's sort of brought the best out of me,” McIlroy countered. “I really enjoy his company.”

I never thought I'd here this sentence used in reference to Tiger Woods!  As much as I hated to see the Tiger Woods scandal hurt his reputation I'm glad to see he has changed.  He has embraced his roll as a senior player on the tour and it's nice to see him mentoring the youth of the PGA.  It's nice to see a little rivilry and friendship forming.

Also Rory is a little ahead of Tiger in Player of the year award, more than likely, because of the major win.  So if Tiger could knock out another win or two, that might propel him into Player of the year....along with the other accolades of doing well in the playoffs.

Tiger has had other PGA pro's as buddies in the past.  I think his mentality is like a fighters, he plays every round trying to win and crush the competition.  Having friends on Tour makes it tougher to be that way.

I'd guess as he gets older and less competitive he will become more friendly and take some of the younger guys under his wing to mentor.

Watching this live on PGAtour.com.  So I guess the reason why they won't show Tiger or any "marquee" groups is some sort of agreement with Golf Channel who will broadcast later?

I am only able to follow the PGA Shot tracker. 186 yard Drive from Tiger on the 4th hole? That seems to be wrong.

Edit: Yeah that is correct. A crap drive.

I will watch later on my DVR, but whatever is happening right now is likely good for golf (this growing Tiger vs Rory competition) with them being paired together and both going pretty low so far.

How fortunate for Oosthuizen and Hoffman that a new tournament is being played to divert attention form Hoffman giving fellow Titleist ball player Oosthuizen one of his balls in the trees under full view of millions of spactators.

It was conveniently swept under the carpet and the commentators have clearly been told not to mention it.

You can give a playing competitor a golf ball according to the USGA(the PGA tour is a bit more restrictive with regards to golf balls, but again still legal)..  If they played the same make/number, by PGA tour rules it would be ok afaik

    • I play steel in my 4 and 6 hybrids (dont play a 5 at the moment). The 4 is TM burner with a OEM steel shaft but the 6 is one i built on the cheap as an experiment. Its an Acer XDS, fitted with an Appollo steel shaft. Its the cheapest one they do and its spot on. You can get the Appollo Shadow lite are Acculite for decent prices through Nordica golf 
    • It's not an informed opinion but I have tried a DG s300 in a 5 wood head and found that the overall weight was very heavy. I was able to get the swingweight down to d2 but the whole club felt like I was swinging a mallet. Since the DG SL is about 20grams lighter ( lower ball flight) or AWT ( Mid Ball flight) I would opt for either of these, bearing in mind that the shaft would have to be parallel tip hosel .370 to fit the Adams Pro .370. ( I could be wrong here but hopefully someone that knows more will pitch in )
    • Hiya All I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years - with a 5 year kid break My current handicap index or average score is: 18
      My typical ball flight is: pull/pull draw
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull draw Current swing thoughts are -Posture don't arch back and neck -Start backswing with right ass cheek -Just rotate on the way back, don't sway to the right -downswing - rotate body, rotate, rotate...ROTATE! -impact try to drive club face forward (impact bag feeling) not flip Not all at the same time, of course! Videos:      The hand signals show the ball flight on DTL. This is a 6I This is a selection of shots, I've not given you the highlights real. Shank happens once every 20-30 Push every 15-20 over draw every other shot.  
    • Probably this,   No specifically, but the overall confidence level is probably low.  
    • This I really agree with.  Really   As it happens I went for the trackman certified guy.  Thanks for the all the thoughts, At lot of them made a lot of sense. Not sure I really got an answer into the fundamental question -How do you know if the advice you are being given is just plain wrong? I, for one, don't want to waste a couple of months being shown the wrong path.  It's a difficult game and weeding out the good advice from the bad is tricky.  The best I've found is to look at how an instructor fixes a "problem"  If they talk about fixing the movements that lead up to the problem, the previous links in the chain, then they get more points.  If they just fix the problem without referring to anything else, then they lose points with me.   Thanks for the help all. Now to get to the range again!
