Officials with the World Golf Hall of Fame announced a lower age requirement for induction from 50 to 45 and streamlined the entry categories

 

If Tiger plays well this year, I think the HOF voters should give him serious consideration.

Good point. We all know how important "longevity" is, after all.

I've fought that battle many times over the years, but now it's moot.  There are only 7 golfers with a longer PGA Tour winning span than Tiger's 24 years, and his next win will bring that down to four -- Snead, Floyd, Mickelson, and DLIII.

Sarcasm, my man. 🙂

But seriously, Tiger's Masters victory in 2019 did a lot to help the "longevity" BS, for sure.

I found it interesting he kept moving the tee down too. I normally keep it in place, but I can see why he does that.

Tiger Woods shot a 69 playing the North Course at Torrey Pines on Thursday, leaving him 3 shots behind leaders Keegan Bradley and Sebastian Cappelen. It was his first round in the 60s on the North Course since 2013.

 

Quote

The round also marked a career first: playing with someone on the PGA Tour who was born after Woods turned pro. Collin Morikawa had that honor, and the former Cal star was a shot behind Woods after a 70.

Not even taking into account what happened on the first hole, he's hit some just abysmal putts today. Sometimes he putts like Michael J Fox plays Jenga...

I just noticed this piece on his equipment. In it, you see his putter head and the wear mark. I have no idea where the sweet spot should be, I guess it depends on the putter. It's closer to the heel than I would have imagined.

Holding Tiger Woods' golf clubs is a special experience. Here are 7 details we noticed while taking in-hand photos at Torrey Pines.

Nice article where a bunch of pros talk about the first time they played with Tiger, with a video cameo of Jack:

Yea, it’s right in the middle of the putter. The neck isn’t coming up out of the heel of the putter.

Yeah, I'm waiting a few more holes before going into the 59 alert thread, but someone better check on @colin007 to see if he's still breathing

Here's a hint on how to find the sweet spot on Tiger Wood's putter.

Look for the wear mark.  Case closed.  Nothing you speculate matters.  Don't question it. Accept that he is far more knowledge and self-aware of his golf game than you are.  Don't be delusional.  Stop.

    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.   
    • Okay, sure, but it almost all cases on the PGA Tour (and competitive golf generally), it's a fellow competitor for those reasons.
