Tiger Woods is a god. Anyone or anything that may cause Tiger some kind of disruption, be it during a round or after, must be slammed in a thread. Anyone who dares challenge Tiger on any level must be slammed in a thread

I think that sums up the bulk of the thesandtrap.com

By the way, this is two tournaments in a row where Tiger has had some sort of controversy involving improving his chances....CHEATER!

@mtsalmela80: Take your anger out in some other thread. Let's not make this thread like the Masters one ended up.

Who will be playing with Lingmerth if both Tiger and Sergio finish at -11?

Dude, are you watching the same tournament we are? With the distance and the crowd surrounding him, there was no line of sight for Tiger to see Sergio, and he went by what the marshal told him. Besides, the applause had already started before he was swinging. Sergio chose to swing away even though he could've backed off and waited for the crowd to quiet down. Then when he hit a bad shot he blames everyone else. At least he said he could've hit a bad shot either way...

Just curious. The feud between Tiger and Sergio is certainly not the first time two pro golfers have been paired up against each other with a mutual distain for one another. Has there ever been a situation where the animosity ever transitioned into a physical confrontation ala pro hockey like fights.

Tournament officials just screwed up on the final round pairings. Garcia and Woods finished tied. Woods shot a lower round and finished before Garcia on 18, but they're putting Sergio in the final group. First in, last out? Apparently not.

LOL at Tiger lovers.

If you actually believe what you say you must have no idea of reality. Sergio was in the middle of his freakin swing when the "Tiger" crowd erupted.

There is no real knowing what happened, but its possible Tiger tried to screw up Sergio, not for sure, but its possible.

Because he is Tiger and the PGA lets him do what he wants at all times.

I understand he brings a lot to the PGA, but altering the rules for his play is wrong.

There would be no controversy in either thread if Tiger simply played by the rules. Like I said, this is 2 in a row involving some problem with Tiger.

If he just played well I would have no problem, but he has to create these problems.

When is the last freaking time that a PGA player played out of turn? Can anyone tell me?

Playing out of turn is really only an issue in match play. Just wondering, did you see the split screen simultaneous view of both players?

Can you tell me how pulling a club is playing out of turn? Sergio is being a bitch, as usual.

Watch the replay where it shows both of them in synch.

It will show you that Sergio is a horse's butt. At the same time, Tiger could have apologized.

The replay shows that Tiger took out a club, the crowd reacted, and Sergio had plenty of time to back off ... he was over the shot (and probably regripping and regripping), when the crowd erupted. Plenty of time to back off. He was using the crowd noise as an excuse for his poor shot...

Sergio is also known on Tour as being temperamental/cranky

cmon tiger!  get a good nights sleep, rest up.  sweet dreams, buddy!

Oompa-loompa would easily kick you and your 11-HCP ass even if he gave you a stroke a hole.

Good luck to him - don't think he'll shoot well under the pressure, but props to him for getting this far.

The hole, as golf fans know, is the 132-yard par-3 No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., the site of The Players Championship, which is to be played this week and carried on the Golf Channel and NBC. It is the signature hole of the course.

During a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, Chamblee explained why he doesn't like it.

"I think it comes too late in the round," Chamblee said. "I think it has the potential to play too much of a role for the quality of the hole. It's 130 yards and . . . sometimes it's an absolute nothing short iron when the wind is not blowing.But when the wind is blowing, there is too much luck involved in the shot and too much of the penalty for a miss.

"I really do think this tournament should be a major," Chamblee said. "I absolutely think this tournament should be a major. I think one of the things that keeps it from really getting its due is the 17th hole. If you look at the way Augusta National or the Masters become a major, it grew into a major organically. There was a reverence there, an awe there, and over a period of time, people looked at it and went, this is a major. You can't deny the quality of the people and the quality of this golf course.

"But there's a contrived part of that 17th hole that makes it great TV, that makes it great drama, that I think just makes the feel of the golf course quirky," Chamblee said. "The rest of the golf course is fabulous. But . . . I love watching it as an analyst."

Chamblee's comments on TPC Sawgrass are OK that is his opinion. I disagree about the 17th hole. usually by late afternoon the wind on the east coast of Florida is always blowing with lots of gusts. Tuck a pin in on the edge and you really see who has the skill and nerve to go pin hunting. The 17th hole has been one the most interesting holes to watch. I would wager that most casual PGA fans if asked what holes do you enjoy watching the 17th would be second only to the famed 16th hole at the Phoenix Open.

That's an understatement. Even his good friend Adam Scott, who is as laid back as it gets, got frustrated with Garcia's temper tantrum antics last year at the PGA Championship.

It's been asked before and you still haven't answered, have you seen the split screen of them both? If you have and you're still yapping, it's because you're just a Tiger hater and facts don't enter into your thought process. If you haven't seen it, then you're just talking out of your ass.

    • Shorter flight, no spin. Gotta land it before the green a lot and let bounce it on. I like hitting the driver. I find it really forces me to swing smooth with a mild tempo. You don’t really use the Wedge(Niblick) around the greens other than when you are forced to flop it over something, which is tough to do. Often you will use a Mashie which is lofted similar to a 7 iron around the greens. The biggest learning curve is just in hitting the ball cleanly. The front edge on these clubs is very sharp.
    • How was it playing a round with the hickories ? Big learning curve or just shorter ball flight ? 
    • Here are some clubs I’ve been working on. I restored the Niblick(pitching wedge) but the other 2 vintage irons, I bought from an individual who restored them for me. I have a replica driver and a long iron which is called a Mid Iron. The second photo shows before and after of cleaning the rust off the heads. I am working towards building an all Scottish set, which will take some time. There are a number of short courses and older courses that are more fun to play with hickories. I played Eagle Springs which is Wisconsin’s oldest course and also a short course recently as my first round with hickories. It is a perfect hickory course. I’ll attach some more photos later about working on restoring these clubs for play. 
    • I’m new to golf in the last few months and my only previous driver experience was a older hand me-down. As in 30 years old or so.      I bought the Wilson launchpad driver yesterday , the slice fighting model  with 13 degrees loft.    It is very forgiving , I was hitting in bounds shots in the 150-180 range on my first few shots , with no driver experience. By the back 9 I was making several shots over 200 yards .    Today I was able to stay in bounds and managed a 250 yard shot verified by rangefinder and cart gps.    If your having trouble with an older driver or don’t have one at all I’d recommend giving it a shot. I think they run under $300 new and this one was less than $175 as a pristine used one.    It’s so easy to hit I might have been better off with the 10 degree loft one , I would have more rollout perhaps. Regardless I’m pretty happy with it , beats my previous 5 iron/5 wood drive strategy. 
    • Thanks for the replies , especially Carl’s he summed it up pretty well. It was a combination of needing to recognize the different condition required a better focus and not having the best release. I was so annoyed at yesterday’s performance I booked a 8:40 tee time this morning on a nicer course that I knew would have pretty good fairways. Also did a range bucket beforehand.  With a commitment to focusing on a later release I played much better , took many divots and was impressing the guys I was paired with through the first 9 holes.   As this was my 6th straight day of 18 holes I hit a wall on the back 9, but it got my head in a better place.   As an aside I bought my first driver yesterday , other than a hand me down ‘80s one  I had played with a few times. Managed to hit 5 drives 200+ in the first 9 all in bounds and an additional 250 yarder.
