Soooo....seems like not too many people care about the playoffs this year.  Cant say that Im all that enthused either, seeing as Tiger and I went 0-fer this year in the majors.  Oh well, we'll see if he can do anything this week.

Seems to be getting updated minute by minute.

Nice find!

Also, if it's any wonder how those guys hit it so far, all you need to see is how high they get on their feet:

What happened? Rickie/Dickie Fowler is playing my kind of golf- opening with two double bogies!

stupid short putts from tiger.  he and i both miss them from time to time...

Looks like he finally drained a long putt to close out the day though.  I'll watch it later when I get home.

Yeah, another typical eye-rolling moment...he missed three short ones earlier...should be at -7 or even -8...

Wow, you were right.  He missed three 4 footers over the last six holes.

I think he also missed a 5 or 6 foot putt on the first 9 for birdie.

In his defense, there was at least one of those shorter putts that had a lot of wind. From a guy who once lived, and played a lot of golf in the Windy City, that can really play mind games with you when you're trying to make a steady stroke and you're getting blasted by the wind over a 5ft or less putt.

Yeah but that putt broke left, against the wind. Either a misread or a pull, I think.

    • As others have said, you''ll probably be hitting a lot of shots with short irons .  with awkward changes to grip,posture, that kind of thing.  I'll be surprised if he let's you swing your driver unless your iron game is really competent and you don't have swing flaws. A very good chance it'll make you a better player, but early lessons  might not be fun. At least that's been my experience and that of everybody I know who have taken lessons.
    • I responded initially to David's comment about hitting an approach shot with what I thought would require a fairway wood to a difficult green and being confident in the outcome. What you've quoted was a response and disagreement to Kevin's comment suggesting that hole would not be difficult for higher handicappers. I'll resist replying to @Vinsk's post directly below yours. My apologies for taking this thread off-topic.
    • I've been looking at my swing in caddie view, especially P8/A8 (the shaft is parallel to the ground in the follow-through) and I noticed that my neck and eyes are still pointing in the direction of where the ball was at address until after P9/A9. I think this is a really bad move for me as I am left handed and left eye dominant, meaning that my dominant eye isn't really seeing the ball after impact, and I am not extending or raising my head from P7/A7 to P9/A9. Annika Sorenstam (who is right handed and right eye dominant) does the opposite move, at P8/A8 her eyes and neck are in the direction of the clubhead from a head swivel move in the downswing. Jim Furyk and David Duval do the same thing that she does and all 3 players shot sub 60 rounds... Could this be a magic move?
    • Uhh, these guys you are destroying, what scores do they usually shoot? they had low handicaps, they were on the golf team with me or for another high school.   You have a 28 HDCP, yet you hit the sweet spot consistently on your irons? for the most part, yes.    thank you for the suggestion, but I hate the feel and look of game improvement irons. which ones do you suggest?
    • Funny guy this Groucho, think he is trolling you Erik.  My story as someone who scores in the seventies when playing a good round (low eighties are more common). I really need my long game to be on. Hitting it 220-230y from the tee, playing a course at 6700y. Next I mostly have a wood or a hybrid to the green. Because of that I became a really good woods/hybrid player (practice it a lot during my rounds). There are two 440y par4's that I can't reach in two, stopped trying to make gir there (no more 3 woods out of my shoes to the green). Not that I hit every green, I even miss greens from 100y in, allways very happy to be on the green in regulation. Ngir is king for me. If not on the green, but almost, I try my Texas wedge (putter) to make up and down. I am not an elite player at all, but am really into scoring. Thinking about buying a chipper, because my chipping is below average. I take my driver out on every hole except par3's. I learned to hit a short gripped driver with an easy 70% swing 180-190y, when there is danger at 200+y, it works for me all the time.
