It should be noted that Tiger did not somehow capitalize on a break in his favor.  IF he is not DQ'd, and IF he comes back to win, anybody suggesting that he was "lucky" or "fortunate" would be severe

No article from Feinstein on Tiger is worth reading.

From a friend of Tiger: “More than the physical and swing-wise, he’s just not working on anything . He’s not worried about his swing, he’s worried about the score. He’s

Oh that. I dunno, even Feherty said that tiger had 3 options for a drop there, and one was about 2 yards behind him. I dunno why, I know it was red stakes, but thats what was said before he made the shot.

I've found literally no one else mentioning this. Not on Facebook, Twitter, golf websites...

naww, there is no dq. He was given the option of dropping there by the rules official on the hole. Feherty spoke of his options before he took the second shot, and that was one of them.

Can Erik tell me what hole he is talking about?  You don't explain what hole you are talking about

15, the phlagstick ricochet.

No it isn't.

First, it's yellow. I don't know what Feherty is talking about. But let's pretend it is red. You get to:

  • Replay the shot.
  • Drop on the line back from where it last crossed the hazard.
  • Drop within two clublengths.
  • Use a drop zone.

Tiger clearly used the first option. He didn't replay from the original spot. If he had chosen option #2 he'd have had to go well back on the line to the left.

I think there's roughly a 0.2% chance anything happens.

But I'd investigate if I was on the RC.

Eric, given that it seems you're the only person who noticed this and then made other people aware. I'll remind you now that you could be about to become one of the most disliked men in golf if Tiger gets DQ'ed.

Either way it sucks because he either is going to get away with a broken rule or he's going to get DQ'd.

Yeah, I agree, that Eric dude's in for a shitstorm if anyone actually picks this up. ;-)

Rules are rules. What can I say? I think my posts here clearly paint me as NOT a Tiger hater or even a disliker at all. I've been rooting for him since 1996. Or before, since I watched his Am wins. I want him to get to 19. I want to see history made.

But Rules are Rules. Especially at the tournament Mr. Jones started.

    • Day 70, August 3, 2021: Grip work, I mean my grip sucks. So I worked on it for ten minutes then hit some chips.
    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
    • The conditions, particularly of the putting greens, don't appear to be "bad" at all there. That stuff matters.
    • The Costs of Selling Covid Fear. Covid vaccines are incredibly… | by James Surowiecki | Jul, 2021 | Elemental Covid vaccines are incredibly effective. The media’s overhyping of new research from the CDC is making people think otherwise. If you haven't already, get vaccinated.
    • Day 584 - August 3, 2021 Hit fifteen or twenty balls at Chautauqua between lessons. Wrists while I turn, 1/2 swing (or 3/4). Whatever it is, it's "less." Hit some good ones.
