Tiger commits to three upcoming tournaments

16 posts in this topic

Tiger seems to be reading this forum. He replied to the [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/t/64709/why-isnt-tiger-in-more-events]"Why isn't Tiger in more events?"-thread[/URL] by committing to the [URL=http://www.pgatour.com/tourreport/2013/02/12/tiger-commits-to-the-honda-classic.html]three next tournaments[/URL] on the PGA Tour. World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship - Feb 20 - 24 The Honda Classic - Feb 28 - Mar 3 World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship on Tuesday - Mar 7 - 10 Thought it was worth a thread, Tiger being who he is.

It's good for golf when Tiger is playing, getting the big media to cover the events more.

I'm not sure what contract length he has with Nike currently (I think last one expired in 2011) but I'd guess he's feeling some heat with Nike signing Rory.

Looking forward to see Tiger at Match Play Championship.

Followed him at Torrey on Sunday and saw some amazing golf shots.

I guess we're gonna have to wait and see on that one.

Why is that a question?

He's already won a lot more PGA Tour events this year than almost everyone else will. :)

The Honda tried to make a media event of Tiger's commitment today although it was a foregone conclusion.  I skipped the press conference today, but last year it was a major freakin deal.  I almost went only to get the first hand account for my Trappers, but I had something else going on.

Any tournament that scores Tiger plain scores and can pick up 30% across the board. I see him really trying to win at the Honda because it is Jack's course and he finished 2nd to Rory last year.  He really had a great Sunday last year in the March breeze.

I wish he would play more tournaments but it's good to see that he's committed to three in a row.

im conflicted...i love tiger more than anyone else on the face of the earth, but at the same time i like the mystique of him not playing that much, it makes the tournaments that he does play that much more special.

GOOOO TIGER!!!!!

    • Thanks, makes perfect sense to me as it has been what I have worked on the past couple of months, and up until yesterday it wasn't something I had to really think about during the swing.  I'll hit the range sometime this week, hopefully it was just a bad day. And yes, been planning to get a My Swing Thread going, but was hoping to get back to where I felt my swing was late last year first. But that may not happen, so guess I'll try to get some swings recorded soon.
    • more offset if for the ones who can't close the face. for me i want less offset so i don't have to worry my ball hooking when i close the face. a lot of AM golfers aren't worry about trying to spin the ball with a GI irons, they are more into trying to smoke the ball as far as they can. and the most forgiveness they can get. but their are some guys who can spin the ball with a GI because they are using a softer ball which helps a lot and knows how to spin the ball. i think it's easier to hit a ball with a small face then a big face
    • I don't really feel that. I'm not working on anything that has to do with the elbow "dropping" at all. If anything I feel it driving outward (toward the ball) more as it comes down naturally. You should start a Member Swing thread of your own. Your elbow probably gets stuck around behind you too much. I'm exaggerating some things to help with my piece right now. It exits lower when I swing normally (even on a draw).
    • @iacas  two quick questions for you. On your transition into the downswing, what is your feel for when the club/hands/right arm/elbow drops?  I ask this because I had a horrific round yesterday, once I got to the top of my swing I was totally clueless, even went back to the range a few hours later, had no issues with wedges, but everything else stayed horrific.  I understand the lower body initiates the downswing, but for me it is more of a parallel move with my lower slide/rotation and my right elbow dropping.  I tried what I would call my normal swing and it just wasn't working, then I tried to only shift my lower body first, then tried the feeling of pulling my hands down and then out.  Regardless of what I tried it just didn't work, just lost all feelings when I got to the top.  Not looking for a magic pill here, just curious if you have a certain feel at this point in your swing. On your follow through, I notice your left arm stays high (inline with your shoulder line).  Mine is much lower when I finish my follow through, sometimes probably under my shoulder line. Is this just a difference in swings or is there a common fault that you see that may cause a lower follow through? Thanks!
