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.

A lot of comments he’s wearing Footjoys not shoes from Nike.

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. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

    • I see that guys like Rahm and Phil are suggesting they now play 72 holes. They appear to be conceding that their circus is viewed as less than a true competitive event. Rahm was a whiney bitch all weekend at Augusta. Regrets?
    • Yeah, in the lessons I have taken we have worked on swinging less steeply. I probably still swing too steep with woods.  Average yardages through my bag according to my Garmin watch (won't be 100% accurate due to sometimes the watch not picking up a shot, or me accidently clicking the wrong club): 60 - 100 yds 56 - 106 yds 52 - 125 yds PW - 149 yds (this one seems off to me) 9i - 149 yds 8i - 157 yds 7i - 167 yds 6i - 178 yds 5i - 190 yds 4i - 202 yds   And longer than that is where I get into trouble: 2i - 208 yds (small sample size on this one, still mostly just practicing with it one the range as the slice % is too high for my liking) 4 wood - 202 yds (haven't used it much last season due to not liking it) Driver - 241 yds   My driver has a huge variance as well. So for example on Sunday (the first round of the year) I hit it 5 times. 2 were big slices (186, and 179 well off to the right). 2 were my hands getting too closed and hitting a much too low draw/hook (239 and 225 on the left rough), and one came out low like the draw, but actually had a fade on it (210, just off the right side of the fairway. Looking back at some past rounds, the good drives (maybe 10% of shots) tend to be between 250 and 280. So when it is outside of 200 yds is where I really get into a lot of trouble. I will often play irons off the tee, or on a par 5 lay up to gap wedge range to try and give myself a comfortable shot in.
    • And yet on they have no problem calling every wooden club a persimmon even though they’re not all made of persimmon. As @iacas said, it’s just what the clubs are called.
    • Hybrids you're supposed to play much like your long irons. I don't really like them anymore because I have a tendency to hook them. I'm probably going to replace my 2h with a 5w soon. Fairway woods are meant to be hit off the ground with a shallower angle. You don't want to take too steep of a swing that you're taking much of a divot. If you have difficulty with the length you can try to choke down on the grip a little. I honestly don't think, based on what you're written so far, that a 3i is really the answer. Maybe learning how to hit the fairway woods better so you can play your 4w or even get a 5w might be the play. What are your yardages through the bag? Do you even need another club just because you can fit one in?
    • And by 'growing the game' they mean growing their bank account.  It's just a weak and stupid rationale.
