Nice to hear some words from himself rather than someone else. He seems to have come out of a pretty bad accident relatively lucky, all things considered.

Quote

“I think something that is realistic is playing the tour one day—never full time, ever again—but pick and choose, just like Mr. [Ben] Hogan did. Pick and choose a few events a year and you play around that,” Woods said during a Zoom interview with Golf Digest’s Henni Koyack from his South Florida home. “You practice around that, and you gear yourself up for that. I think that’s how I’m going to have to play it from now on. It’s an unfortunate reality, but it’s my reality. And I understand it, and I accept it.”

When was the last time he played full time? 😛

The occasional major, his own tournaments and maybe some other special tournaments then, at best. With slim chances of the good old «double U».

I was glad to see the TW smile back today. He's had some really tall peaks and some pretty deep lows. I'm happy to see that he can smile and laugh a bit again. GOAT or not he's done a ton of good for the game, in my opinion.

This move here looks a little Haverkamp, maybe it's the angle? Looks like limited back flexibility. I'm sure he will keep on PTing and healing and getting better though.

Maybe he'll try it out on the Florida swing. I would predict that Tiger would tee it up in the Masters if it wasn't such a difficult walk. Too many elevation changes.

He might play Bay Hill at some point… but even that's unlikely, I think.

Three majors (not the U.S. Open?). Maybe Riviera (pretty flat, benefits TWF). Those are the tier 1 tournaments, I think.

Maybe the Players, since he can bunt it around and putt and it's a flat site, and it pays out a good bit too.

I think he'll play six events a year.

Broadcast going from tape delayed to live. Who moves the needle? Who?

 

Oh man, for some reason I thought this was this weekend.

But that's just the stupid QBE.

I missed this one. Don’t really want a new thread for it since I very much doubt it’d take place. Jake Paul challenged Tiger to a fight… because Tiger was a top 10 athlete google search… yeah.

    • Thanks Bill. It's interesting that you consider the DG to be a low trajectory shaft. It makes me think that the fitter really didn't care enough to try to increase my apex to attempt to accommodate my low spin rate. He didn't take any measurement for club length either, so I'm apparently standard everything, but stiffer shaft to accommodate my swing speed.   To be fair, the fitter did say exactly that - they will adjust the lie angle if it doesn't work for me, but like I said in another reply, how would I ever know if it is not working for me if I don't have a basis for comparison with other lie angles? I also have fairly short legs, yet bizarrely a 35.5" wrist to floor measurement - which puts me at 2 degrees upright, according to Ping... Hence my concern that I'm just "standard" everything.
    • What shaft is your friend using?  Maybe a good place to start is that shaft profile.  From there, you have a pretty nice budget to get whatever irons you want.
    • @Nick-uk Just a thought, you can always get your lie adjusted (whether you do it now or later).  It’s pretty simple to have done down the road.  I had mine adjusted 1 degree upright after the fact. FWIW… We’re similar height, similar distance with the 7i.  I’ve been playing the DG S300 and S400 for as long as I’ve been playing, and very happy with them.  I did try different shafts once, ran back to the DG.  I can only assume the DG product life has existed for a long time for a reason. Also, unless someone is quite short or tall, most people will be fine with a “standard” fit.
    • Unless I’m working off of outdated information, the standard Dynamic Gold shafts haven’t really changed much in decades. They’re known to be low launch and high spin, kind of the preferred trajectory of yesteryear. Again, spin rate alone is not enough information, but low spin rate + low apex height suggests an issue to me. It could just be your swing, but it’s also possible that shaft doesn’t fit you anyway. Just for reference I’m a “low spin” ball striker myself, but my 7i averages 5900 rpm, not 4000. My average apex height is 95’ though. I play KBS Tours. I was fitted out of DG S300 years ago. They don’t work for me.
