As much as i hate to admit it being a massive tiger fan i think it is safe to say that the 23 year old irishman is set to eclipse woods as the new face of golf.

Not only is he starting to dominate the game beating tiger and every body else but also he seems to be a sponsors dream, young number one in his sport with a young good looking tennis player for a girlfriend.

with all the stuff tiger has had going on over the last few years with divorces and affairs and all the rest of it mcilroy has come into his own winning 2 majors and 4 other tournaments on the pga tour.

i think within the nest 3-5 year mcilroy will be the new face of golf and tiger will live in his shadow until the day he retires.

Great golfer but not sure he has the personality to become a cultural icon the way Tiger did. In his prime he was well known to people that had no interest in golf. Time will tell but currently I don't think the same can be said about Rory. Tiger's massive fame still makes him the most recognizable face in golf. Regardless of how he scores I don't see that changing for a while.

Rory's on a roll for sure, playing the best golf over an extended period that anyone has played since Tiger's dominance began, but I think that Tiger still has lots of game left.  We'll see what happens this week, and then at the Ryder Cup.  I'm just not ready to anoint Rory as the best until he holds #1 for more than a few weeks at a time.

This is where that old saying comes from.... "Spoke too soon"

    • Day 112 (7/27/21) - C19--PP Day 2 today. Focused on keeping my shoulders turning on the proper plane and minimizing head movement. 
    • I'll only ever leave a ball in the trap once. Because ... I'm launching number two into the stratosphere. Some of the longest, most majestic shots I ever hit come out of the greenside bunker on the second effort..

    • One of the more freeing things I ever learned about golf was the bit in LSW about how good or bad (I guess depending on your view) Tour Players are from bunkers.  I can get out of a bunker and onto the green most of the time, and now it isn't something I really worry about practicing;  both because of lack of availability of practice bunkers and also the lack of the need.  The quality of my approach shots has also improved and keeps me out of them enough of the time, too.  And most of my "didn't get down in three from the bunker" instances are three-putting from places I probably shouldn't three-putt from too often, which means the bunker shot wasn't the culprit. 
    • Yeah, it's definitely highly dependent on the situation. Based on my limited experience with how penalty areas are marked near cart paths, it's very rare to see the relief area be between the cart path and the penalty area. That's why I was skeptical but also hedged in my post. In any event, this is really an easy situation in competition. Have them play 2 balls and take some pictures of the area. Let the committee sort it out afterwards. That's easier than arguing about it and have that hanging over your head.
