Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

Yeah. Long way from swinging. I'm thinking PGA at the earliest.

I said Ryder Cup, and you were willing to bet against me on that!

Actually, if he doesn't play the PGA, I doubt he'll play in the Ryder Cup either.


Remember guys (sarcasm alert) its going to be a "process", more time with Sean, more "trajs and reps", more not enough spin or compression of the ball, more thinks for Sean and I to work on.

I think he'll come back in that time frame of mid to late july, but competing maybe another story.

Good point, but he did win the 2008 US Open on a broken leg ;-) .   He doesn't have to be in perfect shape to win.

But that was before drug testing though......

:doh:

You literally have NO actual evidence that he did drugs. You don't even have anyone reasonably close (and by "reasonably" I'm casting a pretty big net here) to him saying he did.

I'm a 100% sure that Spitfisher is just a troll. Or, at least I hope he is.

Although I don't think Tiger was using PED's, it's interesting to see people's opinions on it. Here's an example. http://lannyhgolf.wordpress.com/2013/08/12/reader-commentary-was-tiger-woods-doping-peds-steroids-hgh-galea-biogenesis-etc/ I'm sure somebody can point out all of the flaws in his argument though.

He hates Tiger. He is has some personal vendetta because Tiger's values do not meet his. Tmac as well.

I wonder what explains my excitement when Tiger plays (or lack of when he isn't). If I hate the man, I should be happy when he's not playing, no?

Agreed, it is the same tired story.

? :hmm: [quote name="Valleygolfer" url="/t/72993/tiger-woods-master-catch-all-thread-was-injury-thread/378#post_983189"] He hates Tiger. He is has some personal vendetta because Tiger's values do not meet his. Tmac as well. [/quote] Not a troll and I don't "hate" anyône.... That's a bad presumption. Nor do I subscribe to the notion that everything we hear, read & see from entertainers, athletes or anyone in public sector for that matter is gospel. Now back to our regular schedule program. Will he tiger come back strong enough to win a major or simply to the level before the back pain came to the forefront? I happen to think with so much parity of players ability he'll get close to winning a tour event only this year.

I'll go not too far out on the limb and say he ends up winless this year. Don't believe he'll be back before the PGA and won't qualify for the playoffs. He doesn't play anything after that so I don't think it's too much of a stretch.

He'll win again because he is a phenomenal player even when injured.  You insinuated he was doping, which is why you got all the negative responses.  Don't act like you did not create the presumption.

Well, for the record, although I recognize this topic is volatile, I am also of the opinion that there is a greater than 0% chance Tiger has juiced at some point. Most folks I know believe the same. It's the age we're in. Arod, Bonds, Lance, and so many more. I believe DJ has done it too and been caught and sanctioned, quietly. I really don't say this to create a firestorm but to indicate that the assumption is not so very far-fetched nor is it unique by any stretch. Just don't have the same faith I once did in these guys and many, many others are in the same boat as me.

Depends on how you define juiced.  Sudafed is prohibited in the Olympics.  Many common over-the-counter drugs are as well.  In cycling, you have to ask permission for an aspirin.  Caffeine is prohibited above certain levels.  So each sport has a different requirement.  Not sure how juicing would help you in golf either.  It is just a common point the anti-Tiger crowd has and it is so tiring to hear.

    • There is no requirement for a marker to be a fellow competitor. They are simply a "person responsible for entering a player’s score on the player’s scorecard and for certifying that scorecard."
    • I’ll recount this round more specifically, then answer your question.  1) hit normal, first tee shot, duck hookish drive left of fw. Hit a low, below the trees, 95yd 52 wedge to inside 10ft. Missed the putt.  2) cut drive, still missed ever so slightly left of fw. Put approach to 3ft, made birdie.  3) 2iron to mid fairway, had 130 in and hit pw barely over the green (within 20ft of pin). Hit a putt from the rough as it was straight downhill, made par.  4) par 3, hit front edge of green after a high toe chunk of a tee shot. Couldn’t get up and down. 5) par 5, perfect drive, left with 200 or so in. Missed green to the right but pin high, chipped to a tap in.  6) par 3 missed green short right, chip hit the pin and stopped close.  7) par 5, good drive, had 5iron in, missed slightly right but carried the bunker. 2 putt birdie 8- Good drive, missed fairway, but it’s a short hole and ended short right of green. 65yd pitch to inside 10ft. made the putt.  9) pounded the drive, approach from 45yds ended up inches from the hole. Birdie 10) missed drive right into the trees, punched out, had 105yds in and put my 56 to 4ft and made par. Key par there.  11) par 5, drive missed right of fw but still fine, hit 4iron to inside 20ft, 2 putt birdie.  12) par 3, thought i hit it perfect, bit landed mid green and spun to front. Had a tough uphill putt from 40ft or so. Made par.  13) par 5, good drive but slightly left of fw, hit 2iron to pin high right of green. Chip to 5ft, made the slider for birdie.  14) 315yd par 4, drove green (must have had a lucky kick, I’ve been plugging in front approach all winter), ended within 15ft and made the putt for eagle. 15) cut 2iron down left side fw, tucked right pin so did my normal draw off it to middle of green. Had 25-30ft, made par.  16) par 3, 150yds, tucked right pin again, hit 15-20ft away, made par.  17) hit hooky 2iron, but ok in left rough, had 100yds in slightly downwind, hit my 60 8ft past, made birdie.  18) hit 2iron hard down right but hit trees and kicked, luckily, slightly left back into fairway, had 130yds in and had my 52 to 4ft, made birdie.  That is 7/14 fairways and 14/18 greens. Basically the driver was hit well, and for the most part, not in trouble and leaving short wedges in. From there I hit wedges really well, including many of the chip/pitch distances. When my game is around even par, there’s definitely no putts made and approaches aren’t as close. Mid to upper 60s means better approaches and some putts. Low 60s is good approaches with more putts made. Certainly making birdies on the 4 par 5s is important as well as making virtually no bogies.  I’ve said it before about my game but when my driver is doing good, I’m doing good. If it’s not, I’m not. My full/partial wedges are the best part of my game. Pitching/chipping is getting a ton better. Putting is a lot better but variable depending on conditions. The game just happens to be aligning more the last few months. 
    • Day 50 - Used MirrorVision to watch/film swings, focusing on my impact position.
    • 62 is cool as hell. Damn
    • Great playing! Curious when you say "good approaches" on like 1,2,17,18 that resulted in 3 birdies, what kinds of distances are you hitting for the approach shots and how far are you leaving for your birdie putts?  Maybe a better way to ask is during this great run of golf you've been playing obviously you've been doing a lot of things well, but is there a common theme among the really low rounds that you hadn't had prior to this stretch? Like has it been a case of stuffing everything to 5 feet, making a ton of long putts, not missing a fairway, etc.
