I didn't catch it. Fell asleep when they were on 15. (His 6th hole of the day) I recorded it so I will check it out when I'm home

They never showed a good shot of it from what I could tell.

I understand the poster of the YT video is trying to convey that Woods hit a bad shot, but fat top shank?

Is it possible to top and fat and shank a shot at the same time?

i think it was a drop-kicked duck hook, from what i could tell.  it appeared that the ball ended up short and well left - hence the duck hook.  he also hit the ground at least 3 inches behind the teed up ball - hence the fat/topped.  there was no shank, from what i can tell.

This wasn't too pretty either.

Rory and Tiger both hit shots that were much more "human" than their usual, always makes me feel a little better. I have not seen Rory make two doubles in a round in a long time. Rory has at times hit some bad shots, he just usually recovers better than he did yesterday.

Both of them hit some less than stellar shots. Time for them to shake of the rust and get back to work.

Exactly, they will both be fine once they hit their stride. I expect them to both finish the season, barring injury, some where in the top 5 possibly 1 and 2

EDIT* Unless the 'courting of Elin' stories are true and a new media storm is imminent, in which case all bets are off.

I wish they would show those rare bad shots better than they typically do.  I would've liked to see a slow-mo and the announcers should've said what the carry distance was.  Not to embarass the guy - but I would just find it interesting as a viewer.  Plus it helps you understand how good the *next* shot is (which it usually is).

The addage of, " Cheaper to keep her " applies here.

Man, I can't afford to throw my clubs around after making a bad shot...they would all be bent and dinged to heck.

Tiger's next instructor - Patrick57 and logman. That's why he was in Austria - it wasn't for Lindsey Vonn!

    • This is the interesting question.  If he hadn't been drinking, there should be no reason to refuse the breathalyzer.   Surely he's not stupid enough to tell a boldfaced lie in his statement that will easily be refuted.
    • Number one, I had no idea there was a free rules of golf app. Do you have to be a member of the USGA? Because i'm Canadian, and Golf Canada doesn't give us free anything besides a crappy quarterly magazine. I didn't have a current rules book with me, as I was forced out of the game for almost 3 years due to a workplace injury. I encountered a situation that had never happened to me before and asked a simple question. 
    • Hmm, where have I heard that a DUI arrest is a medical issue before? Oh yeah, when his agent was arrested for DUI: http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/tiger-woods-agent-mark-steinberg-arrested-drunken-driving-charges Color me skeptical. Not that it really matters. A DUI for an "unexpected reaction" to medication, which probably has a warning on it not to drive when taking it, is just as serious as a DUI for alcohol. If he's going through personal issues, I hope he sorts through them. But he shouldn't get a free pass because alcohol was not involved.
    • I figured it was meds, and while it still bothers me, i'm not as dissapointed as I was when I thought it was alcohol, just because I know how meds can affect you without even realizing it. I went through third degree burns to my left leg, and I did the same thing as him (though I wasn't caught or charged) for a few days thinking I was fine, before once becoming suddenly very tired at the wheel, I mean nodding off like a heroin addict. I had to pull into a parking lot and call some friends to come pick up me and my truck. I didn't drive again until I was off the meds. But it was a reaction I wasn't expecting. I had been tired throughout the ordeal after my surgeries, but I thought it was just my body telling me I needed rest. I had no experience with pain meds, or the anti-anxiety (Clonazepam or some such drug) meds they gave me after my workplace accident, and didn't know how they were affecting me.    I'm not defending Tiger, just like i'm not defending what I did. Had I been caught, I would have rightly been charged, just like Tiger.    And if you think driving at 3am post-surgery when you've slept most of the day and can't sleep at night is something out of the ordinary, I don't know what to tell you. I still go for a drive in the middle of the night when I can't sleep sometimes.  And in Tigers case, he is apparently also a known insomniac. 
    • Uhhhh…? You can have a different reaction weeks into a set drug regimen. Plenty of other factors can change. Dosage. Lack of sleep. Diet. The specific times you take things. I don't much care either way (he should not drive impaired - that puts others in danger) as it's off-course stuff, but I still like facts and dislike speculation.
