HATE that he's one of those people who's like "I eat and eat and eat and I just can't gain any weight!"

I know Tiger wanted to make the Tour Championship, but I'm not so sure missing is such a bad thing.  He has played 8 competitive rounds the last 2 weeks and he knows what he needs to work on and now he has an extra week to get that all cleaned up before the Open.

But then again, what the hell do I know?

I don't know about having an extra week to clean-up his swing.  He had a plenty of time to do so before BMW Championship. He is just not what he used to be.

He has too many other priorities.  I would be shocked if he made top 25 at the U.S. Open.

He played the week before.

Now, with 8 rounds under his belt, he can make some changes based on those rounds. Maybe a bit more time putting, among other things.

You were saying the same kinds of things before he won the Masters and the Zozo. I don't know what he's got in his system anymore, either. Anything we get is gravy. But I won't really speak out against him.

It's all gravy.

I think I probably got too excited after the Zozo and the Presidents Cup, feeling that since he was on such a tear after his knee surgery, that was the only thing holding him back last summer, post-Masters, and that as long as he was healthy he'd be back to consistently competing. Realistically, he's never going to be healthy at 44, spine or otherwise, so it's tough to expect too much week to week. 

Kind of a frustrating few weeks though. It's been a lot of that 2010s Tiger where he'll have a good 6-9 hole stretch and then look pretty listless for the rest of the round. It would probably be easier to accept that if he a) hadn't already been doing that for a solid decade and b) didn't have three wins in the last few years, in each of which where he looked like he was in pretty good command of his game.

On the plus side, this year's Zozo is being relocated to Sherwood Country Club, where Tiger used to host the World Challenge, and where he has won a bunch of times (over super tiny fields, admittedly). They also moved the CJ Cup to Shadow Creek, where the original Match was held.

He probably won't play both of those, since they're in back to back weeks, but they're really the only events I could see him playing between the U.S. Open in September and the Masters in November.

Yes, I did.  And it was a pleasant surprise to see him actually win those events.  But he seem to be having more frequent health issues, which is not surprising given his age.

More importantly, now that his kids have grown up and needs more of his attention, in particular Charlie with winning his junior events, he may not have the time or the drive he once had.

I was like uh-oh, did something bad happen, no, just random appreciation, in Mickelson's own words.

    • Pro, I will challenge you (or ANYONE on T.S.T.) to an epic match, 18 holes "GOLF", (9 right handed, 9 left handed) followed by 18 holes disc golf (9 lefty, 9 righty).   Stroke play, 14 clubs, winner gets a chicken dinner (or steak).   I'll travel to you, or if you're in Columbus.  Pro, you should be a good disc lefty, cause its a righty golf swing.  Don't take my word for it, review the many hours of disc golf instruction on Disc  Golf Course Review or on YT (seabass, heavydisc) who use the golf swing to instruct.  I'll  download some relevant examples in the future and my right and left golf swing on post swing forum when I get a chance.  I'm probably a 20 handicap lefty, don't know cause I'm a certified range rat, but I'm getting better lefty quick.  
    • Neon pink and neon blue, because I feel like these compliment the high-visibility balls I use.
    • Please don't call it "ball golf." I play disc golf too (not as much as I'd like), and that term is abhorrent. It's golf, and disc golf. @cipher will back me up here. 😉 You're going to have to explain that one a little bit, as I don't know that I agree.
    • @JohnBta, welcome to the site. I share these only to try to help… https://thesandtrap.com/how-to/embed-videos/ - Please embed videos. https://thesandtrap.com/b/playing_tips/filming_your_swing - Mind your camera angles. The swing starts about two full minutes in to that video. Trim videos and people will be more likely to help you.
    • Lifetime righty ball golfer here, still learning at 64, about a 6-8 handicap nowadays, -mainly a range rat.   Been disc golfing 3 years, studying form.  The Swing and Throw are highly related, I've been experiencing epiphany for my ball golf swing by studying disc  golf form on YouTube (following slingshotdiscgolf and jifs like below.)   Check out the speed of Will's rotation, watch his left foot.  Amazing.  Tons of YouTube content from the top 5 disc golf form analysts who seem to love Shawn Clemens, the ball golf pro.   The same lag/whip/snap concepts.
