I've never been too worried about his length. Accuracy on the other hand...

He apparently played with Trump and Dustin Johnson yesterday (Thanksgiving)?

Today (Friday) I believe.  Tiger has made a few off-course decisions in life that didn't work out too well.  This will rank right up there.

I disagree, and will urge you to please remember our rule: no politics.

And yes, today. I thought today was the 25th for some reason.

Dana Dahlquist has some photos of Woods on the range I think today. That A9 position looks like less stress on the back.

Nah, it's becoming something of a tradition for Tiger to hurt his stock on Thanksgiving :-P

Please stay healthy this year, Tiger. If you can't come back, then what hope do I have? Rooting for him this season, despite my razzing here haha.

Hmmm, how to comment on this without being political... 

This is challenging haha. OK, here goes:

Respect to Tiger not caring at all if people will approve of this or not. I like that.

He's played with every president. That's remaining neutral. You either play with none of 'em or all of 'em.

Woods looks like he has old man finish, but according to Faxon, hit it past DJ half the time, hey if it goes far and straight, who cares how it looks?

I read Woods is designing a Trump course, forget where, so if true, partly business round.

It's in Dubai and the development is partly being done by a Chinese state owned construction firm:

A point I hadn't considered before:

Quote

One more point: I think the rehab stint was more important for Tiger than we can know. The DUI report made clear how out of control his prescription drug use had become. Tough to play golf like that. If his mind is clear and his body flushed-out from all of those toxins, that could make this comeback much different from all the previous, aborted ones.

Wow!!!  This I did not realize the rate of winning when leading after 54 holes.  It just show how great he was in his prime...

Quote

 In his prime, Woods converted 93 percent of his 54-hole leads/co-leads – by comparison Jack Nicklaus converted 60 percent of the time when leading after three rounds – and he’s spent 683 weeks as world No. 1. Everyone else has a combined 384 weeks atop the world ranking since 1997.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
