Are you implying that a guy who knew the rules good enough to know he could have the gallery move a "loose impedement" for him and yet doesn't know the rules good enough to know how to take a drop after hitting it in the water ?

Maybe you are the one who needs to get a life?

She's not all that smart, but I'd call her ass a 9! :-D . . . . . . . . . I know, I'm sorry........ :-P

Whoa, easy there. This soap opera has to continue, a lot of grown up people have nothing better to do with their time. We've got to respect this!

This from a guy who was the Scorer on Thursday with Tiger's group, demonstrating the chaos that surrounds Tiger: I was the walking scorer with Tiger's group on Thursday. It was Tiger, K

The biggest problem I see is the idiots that are sitting at home and calling in to report rules infractions.  Can you imagine if the NFL did that?  What a mess that would create.  They should take this equation out of it and allow the tournament officials to do what they are there for.

I can guarantee you that EVERY golfer in this world has taken an illegal drop.  It just wasn't caught on camera.  Get over yourselves and enjoy what you are witnessing.  This comes along once every few generations.

I wonder what the producers yelled in Johnny Miller's earpiece when he all but accused Tiger of cheating without saying so. Funny he never mentioned it again afterward. After Tiger hit his ball in the water on 14, NBC showed an aerial view that clearly showed where the ball entered the hazard. I am curious to see the correlation of the aerial shot and where Tiger dropped

After finishing reading the last page, I guess there were 3 idiots with about 15 posts each who joined just to bash.   Guess they got theirs when Tiger pulled it out.

Congrats to Tiger, bummer for Maggert.

And Sergio????

Then I thought maybe the Swede was going to do it on 17, but making a 7 footer on the next to last hole to tie Tiger is more pressure than any of us will likely ever face.  Actually I have a strong hunch that tee shot was a mistake that he got away with.  And after a bit of a struggle off the tee most of the day, Tiger nails it on 18 for the probable win, and at least no worse than a tie.  It was a great final round, putting the lie to the idea that TV golf can't be exciting.

WELL STATED. TIGER IS THE GREATEST GOLFER OF ALL TIME END OF STORY!

I'm sure I've taken a few over the years as has everyone else. However, we don't have millions of dollars in prize money at stake.

It happens, Tigers was caught on camera and then called in by some slob on a couch someplace. If anything Tiger should be the one biotccching.

Tiger didn't suggest a drop spot and then ask for feedback.  According to the guy walking with the group (Maltbie?), the first thing Tiger did is ask his playing partner if his ball crossed before or after a specific post, and his partner said it crossed after.  You could then see him proceed to ask several times for feedback on the spot.

Are you really that dense?  Tiger clearly made a mistake on the rules at the Masters, because if he intentionally cheated then he would be incredibly dumb (giving you guys a run for your money in that department) for admitting it in the post-round presser.

I watched the aerial view a few times and it still wasn't clear to me where the ball crossed.

Anyway, today was great entertainment.  Lingmerth was aggressive and took a lot of risky lines all day, but got away with all of them and ALMOST made the most of his round by tying for the lead late or finishing solo 2nd.  Sergio gave everybody exactly what they wanted with a meltdown on the gimmick hole while in contention.  Tiger haters and lovers both got what they want: the haters a chance to grasp at straws and call him a cheater, and the fans another remarkable display of great execution, followed by great resolve.

As stupid as it may sound to say, I think he may be playing the best golf of his career.  He probably won't win 3 majors this season, but damn if he isn't as consistent in each start.

Can't wait for the US Open!

Yes, Malbie said that from where he was, the drop looked to be in an appropriate location from what they could see at the tee box.

Bear in mind that if the aerial video wasn't straight over the top of the ball, it could look like it was over the top of the ball, but it would look farther away from the shore than it was in real life.

The aerial view showed nothing.  You can't tell a thing by that because of the camera angle.  It would only be meaningful if the camera was dead straight above the point where the ball crossed into the hazard.

Dense, not by any means.  Merely using the same logic and lingo as some of the fanboys boys who drool in TW foot steps. And then get asked if I'm dense.  Some of you fanboys show as much class as your hero does.  You clearly were ment for each other.

Admittedly I am no Tiger fan.  Saying that I did not see the happenings on the 14th hole nor do I give a big enough crap to try and see a replay.  What I did see of him today looked like he has his poop in a group and will be chasing history again.  I am no fan of his but I do like to watch amazing golf when its played.  I am old enough to be able to watch good golf and not respect the a-hole playing it.  Me thinks some of you should give your families the love and attention that you effortlessly donate to Tiger.

Yeah. Not only could the camera have been off, but we would not have been able to tell if it was off, or by how much.

How about the stones it took to hit a draw into that pin position in 18? Not to mention the tee shot...

I must say, Sergio took this a lot better than I thought he would. I said somewhere on this forum that the turning point of his career would be when, instead of standing defeated in the face of luck/fate/what have you, he stands defiant of it; Phil didn't start winning majors until his outlook changed. I don't think Sergio's quite there yet, but he's a lot closer than he was a week ago.

No, you used NO logic.  That is the point.  Logic failed the statement you made and the question you asked.  Logic would have stopped you from making the initial post.

Clearly you are not yet old enough to separate your feelings about the a-hole from the analysis of the golf.  The mere fact that you assume people here give Tiger more love and attention that they do their families is a great illustration of this.

Given how beautifully Tiger is hitting his 3 wood and 5 wood, and given how tight Merion will play, will he leave the driver out of the bag at Merion? Should he?

    • Our Junior golf program starts kids at a very young age and the kids progress as their abilities become better. Most will start will the 3 hole program playing from around 100 yards. Then they move back to 150. Then the program advances them to 5 hole rounds. They start at 150 and move back to 200 yards. When they are able to average a set scoring ability they will advance to 9 hole short course and then 9 hole long. During the stages, staff will have instructional days along with fun games they play at the range. Each season consists of a putting contest and a family scramble with award dinner at the end of the season sessions. The program has become very popular as the membership grows with over 300 kids participating. Parents are encouraged to keep scores for groups during the season. Many just walk along and observe and assist when needed. Most kids complete the entire program and they make many new friends. My observance over the years is when kids play, they are learning safe manners and  exhibit a good mannerism learning etiquette and sportsmanship and rules. IMO, kids will enjoy leaning golf with other kids. I enjoyed having my grandson in the program for several years. It also provided me an opportunity to meet the children of many regular golf members who I have golfed with through the years.   
    • I think you keep searching for different things when in reality you need to find your priority thing and work on that until it’s no longer the priority thing.
    • Oops. I should have said 'discarded cigarette lighter' rather than a walnut.
    • I have been doing a drill where I swing with my right arm only (right-handed golfer). In taking the club back slowly with my right arm only to the top and pausing there, I have found that the only real efficient way to initiate the downswing is for the lower body/hips to rotate towards the target. The lower body is needed to tug/pull the upper body/right arm. The momentum created on the downswing of the right arm does not have the left arm to get in the way and stall the swing. I find that the body opens up fully to the target without thought or concentrated effort involved. So practice a full, slow backswing with a pause at the top with the right arm only. Then do a good downswing and the body will be facing the target and there is also some good lag and forward shaft lean.  
    • I would suggest putting up a swing video so that people can assist you better.  In general, very few people can generally have too much hip or shoulder turn.  Most have too little
