If he's driving past Chuck Norris it will have to be on the road. As long as he's not parked on the curb for a quick nap.

Nah, just exceeding speed of light is all.

Is he allowed on the road right now?

This two weeks is going to take forever!

Coverage is all set up to cover all 75 plus shots Tiger takes for round 1 and 2.  He moves the needle for sure. It was about this time last year when Perez called it like it is about Tiger.

And yet I would rather watch him hit all 75 plus of those shots than 95% plus of the guys on tour at the moment.

He shot 73 65 70 his first three rounds last year, only shooting 76 in his last round when he was well out of it already.

So…

This, and from what I remember about last year, this year's comeback has entailed a lot more reason for optimism. 

Pretty sure Pat Perez's comments were around Torrey/Dubai times of early 2017, when TW was clearly injured (again)

that alone gave me a lot of hope for a much betting outing for Tiger this time around.  Plus the fact that he is probably working hard on his game before the Hero Challenge.

Can't wait to see how he does.

Practice is practice. It's ususally been when the hits the tour that stuff starts to go awry. Either way I'm looking forward to see how he holds up. As far as I remember, he's usually been hitting it well right before comebacks.

He has not played before most of his recent comebacks. Just practice. He’s reportedly playing a lot.

The bulls are pretty bad now. MJ should come back to see if he still has it and fill the stands. Wait it would be conflict of interest with the Bobcats.

Don't know where I read it, it might have been here, but Hank Haney is very hopeful for Tiger's return. Said he's found a swing that can work with how he is physically. Also, heard a clip on radio of Tiger responding to a reporter's question of "why not just go back to 2000" to find his swing again. Tiger said, something like, "Because I can't go back to 2000! My one knee is trash. I've had four operations on it. I've had surgeries on my spine! I just can't do the 2000 swing anymore!"

Ah. By practice I meant playing practice rounds. He's had so many comebacks that I probably mix them up. I know one time he was reportedly playing a lot of practice rounds and playing really well, but that could have been some time ago.

During one of those comebacks he was reported to be shooting 63 or something at medalist every time he played.  Then he came back and was barley shooting scores that could have beaten me.

    • Today’s session 1–17-20 I had to take some time off to heal from snowboarding. I don’t suck at it or anything, I must just be getting old. Everything hurt 😩. Goals: 1. Swing inside out. I keep swinging left 2. Go up through impact (forward shaft lean problem) 3. Stop shanking it. I drew some lines on my videos when I was bored. I noticed my butt was not maintaining the depth that it started at. I was gonna try to keep my butt against an imaginary chair or something. FIRST SWING after warm up. Nothing too good about this one. SECOND SWING I spent a good third of my session trying to keep my butt against an imaginary wall, and swing out. I thought this was not good. The takeaway was goofy on top of everything else. I came up with a new plan after this. 1.I tried to take the club away low and wide, then hinge my wrists vertically 2. I tried to bump hips and keep my chest closed to the target to stay deep in transition to swing out to the right. 3. Hit draws or hooks LAST SWING. I have a bunch from this part of session. They all look similar. The last half of session was all slow swings 50% at most. I could not obtain “success” at any faster speeds. 1. Not in love with the top of my backswing, not sure why it keeps laying off. 2. I focused a lot on bowing wrist throughout the downswing. More than I captured in this video. I did hit a lot of draws in this part of session. 3. I got the club to not tip out in this part of session.  SUMMARY I feel a little lost, not sure where to start or what to focus on most. I’m kind of frustrated that I can’t simply swing out to the right like I’ve been able to for 6+ months. Next session should be Tuesday at the latest
    • Wedges are very personal. Some people like and play well with low bounce, some grinds have different effective bounces and some people use them for different things. Also the size and width of the flange is a factor.   All that said. I agree 6 deg is a low bounce and will be more likely to dig in softer sand/turf. 
    • The kid I sold my irons to kept them for a couple years and the paint fills were still good when he got rid of them. He played a lot too. I would imagine they would last as long as a normal paint fill would, several seasons. I mean it is a permanent thing, its not designed to wear out.
    • I played to scratch when I was coaching a high school golf team several years ago. Since then, I’ve had the following surgeries; total c2 to t1 fusion with a permanently broken c1 vertebrae. 360• fusion (both through the front then through the back) of my L1 to S1 vertebrae. also have arthritis in my knees and zero cartilage in my right knee.    I know I will never get to scratch again but I believe if I start slowly I can get some semblance of a game by trying to improve in other areas. I am not going to hit those booming 300 yard drives again but maybe my mid-short iron game can be improved from where they were. i take as my inspiration a great friend , Matty Reid (see Curt Sampson’s book Hogan) who would travel to Texas tournaments with Hogan and beat both Hogan and Nelson for a couple of Texas championships. Matty was great but back then he needed to work on a railroad nod to feed himself and his family. He was in an accident that crushed every bone in his wrist. When we would play together he would bump it along the ground and then sink 40 footers for par. Everyone can have fun at this game with the right inspiration and expectations.   sorry, I felt like preaching today.
