It’s harder to assess his swing and gate in slow motion.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

It's always fun to watch Tiger and the atmosphere he brings.  Even if he doesn't win it or place well, there's always that chance that he plays the one amazing round he's so well known for.

Tiger wearing FootJoys in practice rounds due to stability of shoe. Interesting.

Maybe. Has anyone specifically said it's due to the "stability"?

Maybe it stretches more, so if his foot swells from walking more than he's used to it's still a fit.

Or something…?

That is what the article stated. He was looking for obvious reasons a more stable shoe. Nike at this time does not have that type of shoe apparently. I bet they will very soon.

What article? You didn't post an article when you stated the reason he is in the Footjoys

It doesn't say anything like that:

Quote

It therefore is unsurprising that he would need the footwear that provides him with the most support, and right now FootJoy is apparently ahead of Nike in that regard.

That's it. And it's not a quote or attributed to anyone, thus, it's… the opinion of the author, I guess?

Speculation at best? So I renew my earlier question(s).

Yea, i wouldn't take that as something Tiger mentioned, but just an opinion of the author. From my experience with Nike, they always run a bit narrow. I do not think Foot Joy provide more support versus Nike. When I think of support, I think of how immobile it makes your foot. Like, what New Balance has made their entire running brand around versus more barefoot style of shoe that allows for more mobility.

Plus it’ll add 7-8 yds to his drive!

Nike better come up with that shoe and quick before they lose him altogether over that

Maybe it's about having a lower platform with less total rise (and maybe less heel drop).

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. 

When he was an amateur.

Says he is going to play "as of now" and will play 9 more practice holes today.

When he is in the field, I feel like he is always a threat to win.

If he doesn’t get worse, he’s playing. If that ends up with 72 holes or not remains to be seen.

    • Guess who plays lots of afternoon golf for discounted rates?  🤚 All the math on pricing i remember basically took that into account I guess.  I have heard good things about RTJ as well.  You can always throw a dart at the cheaper courses in the area for a morning round, and jump on those discounted rates at the elite courses for the second 18 of the day. This also is true.  I want to say I paid under $70 for afternoon rounds everywhere I've played down there before.....and thats the cheapest I could find in Hilton Head.  I rarely pay over $50 for most of my rounds in Michigan Either way, you're in for a great trip.  The "cheap" courses are still great to play, and a couple top tier courses mixed in would be a perfect week of golf.  Makes me want to get back down there for a full island golf tour sometime soon
    • Right. But they are televising it in the morning.  I don’t know why they do that? I suspect it’s the PGA. Anyway, who are you watching/rooting for?
    • I started to post this in the US Amateur thread, but don't want to derail that discussion with LIV....but I was absolutely shocked to see David Puig in there after competing in multiple LIV events.  Turns out, he has not accepted any prize money or contract money from LIV in order to keep his amateur status. Makes for an interesting case, since by playing in those tournaments, he forfeit his chance to join Korn Ferry or another PGA Tour Umbrella tour through NCAA standings.  But he's not accepting money from LIV, presumably to return to school for his senior year, so he doesn't have income or a long term future with LIV either.
