As if the Masters needed anymore excitement leading into. Any word on Reigning champ playing?

He’s going through all the motions of an official start but cagey as always.

Dunno why this doesn’t unfurl.

Phil should send Tiger a thank you note because all of the 'will he play or not' has buried what would have otherwise been the biggest pre-Masters story.

My memory is fuzzy. Has his first tournament back from a long break ever been a major? I’m thinking a previous Masters maybe?

Depends on how you define long. He was out for a couple of months with a back injury before returning for the 2015 Masters.

Yes! I’d count that.

Phil’s too arrogant and dumb to realize that’s a good thing.

It's mainly the claim that he hasn't lost any speed, that's implausible. I don't doubt that he had a good sesh, but c'mon....

Oh my Goodness. ... I hate to say it, but I think you are right. 

Back on topic:
Whether or not Tiger plays doesn't matter to me. I will be following and streaming as much of the Masters as my job/life allows. Having said that, Tiger is obviously the biggest thing in golf and I'm sure there are a lot of people who would benefit from him playing. 

Personally, I only want him to play if he's up to it. I'd hate to see him out there just knocking it around. Think about this. The last time Tiger missed the cut at The Masters was during The Clinton Administration.

    • I did just that. Just finished a bucket trying what he’s teaching. It was awful. Shanks, pushes, push slices. I did manage to hit about 10 shots that were nice draws but not any more distance than my own hilarious method. I’m pretty disappointed. You really had me going this was gonna be a Eureka moment. It’s probably like any other method in that there has to exist some sort of natural talent which I and @ChetlovesMer lack. So unless every single aspect of the swing is detailed correctly to us, we’re not gonna get it right. And when we do make the swing that looks right on video, the feel is so foreign and unrepeatable to us we find ourselves reverting back to comfort. Sorry I spoke for you Chet.
    • People have answered about what the limitations and issues that there are with this method.  It might work for some people and help them, but there is probably a limit to the amount of help vs. working with a good local pro.     You are completely missing the point of what lessons are supposed to do if you make changes.   Heck my local pro told me point blank that it was going to take time and he specifically wanted me to have a couple of practice sessions before playing because it's going to take time.  He also funnily said "if you go play now it'll be the worst round ever".   That's pretty basic.   Find a good pro, make sure you commit to the changes and the amount of time and keep listening.   It's a real dunce who takes lessons, goes and plays 1-2 times and then thinks they know better.   The only point being proved is that you won't tolerate anything other than your viewpoint.    And there is a difference between putting something down and calling out issues with it. And yes, if my listening to experts who review and give their opinions, backed up by facts, then I don't need to drive the car.   The key requirement is that you trust who is giving the review and they know what they are talking about. Kind of like going to a golf forum, run by a respected teacher and oodles of knowledgable people about the game of golf and swing mechanics and listening to what they have to say. That kind of philosophy only works...until it doesn't.   Why would I go and try something like this when I have a community like this where I've taken several things to the course from the help provided and I already work with a good professional?   Maybe you, or other people, don't want to do that...that's fine.   Saying that people refuse to listen is really another way of saying "I don't want to listen to what the majority of people say".   If there was something revolutionary in what was being taught it would get out there.   This seems to me to be gimmicky, like diamond dust on a wedge or magical clubs that save you 5-7 shots a round.   Both examples of magical wishful thinking. I hope the system works for you, I really do.   But don't sign up here and troll like this.   No one will put up with it in the very near future.  Feel free to post on other topics and engage nicely, or keep your post count as close to the current 7 as possible.   Either way is fine. Actually this came in while I was typing.  Please feel free to go away, yourself.   
    • Yes, but you'd probably also make a lot more high numbers.  The risk/reward for an aggressive shot is very different in a scramble, especially if someone on your team has already put the ball into play. 
    • I haven't looked into them, sorry.  
    • tell you what - go away, try what this PGA teaching Profesional is showing then come back if its a load of garbage. Didnt realise there were so many precious people on here that are always right and never wrong.
