Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

A little humorous happening. Yesterdaywe stopped for lunch at a sports bar. On one of the flat screens they were showing TW's highlight. It might have even been at the event Woody is playing in this week. 

There was a guy who was jumping out of his shoes at Woody's play. With every putt made he would holler something exciting. 

When it was over, he walked by us and let us know that Tiger was back, and would win the tournament. 

I just smiled and acknowledge his remark. I didn't think it was necessary to ruin his day by telling him the 61 that Woody shot on the flat screen was from a past tournament. That his current round three score today was a 73.

Exact same thing happened to me yesterday, except it was Joe Montana.

Anyone else see that graphic yesterday on how Tiger's swing speed has steadily dropped the past five events it has been measured?

That’s not unexpected since he’s kind of trying to steer it around right now.

Are we allowed to do this when we know it's a rerun?  If so, I'm going to do this next time I watch the 1947 NFL Championship.

Yeah, he's definitely got that weird thing going on, not the free flowing swing.

I don’t think he was bored. I somewhat agree he could’ve done more but not because of Chamblee’s reasoning. Golf is hard. Tiger was dominating. But he was dominating relative to golf and its history of players. Tiger didn’t win every tournament he played in. Not even at his peak. I honestly feel he made some poor choices in life that took away from his golf. His father dying, the injuries to add, a lot for a young man to endure all while trying to win at the most difficult sport of all. Tiger in his prime was phenomenal. Far beyond any golfer in history. But it’s all just speculation as far as what more he could’ve done. It is what it is. But I think his comeback is on a good pace and I hope he continues to have the desire.

I agree that he's underperformed based on his talent and work effort, which is primarily because of injuries. That the GOAT is the one who's gotten the least out of his talents however, I can't agree with. Maybe that he's the one that's potentially lost the most based on his talent.

I believe it's a back-handed complement to Tiger and just leave it at that.

I know it's commonplace for him now, but the first time he drew a huge crowd for a practice round, that must have been such a rush.

I did see he was ranked 47 for the Fedex Cup and now he is at 20.  Pretty amazing based on where he was at the beginning of the year and the number of tournaments he has played.  It is good to see him playing so well.

At 42, and so many surgeries, he will have a tough time against the younger players who molded their power games after Tiger.  He has kept not only his die hard fans, but I think he has converted a number of non-Tiger fans who are rooting for this version of Tiger against the world.

    • Would be tough to golf in Michigan...
    • I grew up playing in the wind in the St. Louis area.  Qualifying for the high school golf team or the university team (scant miles from St. Louis) in the Spring was hell!  I am no longer there and I will no longer play in the wind.  Period.  Even when I play WGT I set the wind at "low". But I will play in the snow.
    • I get annoyed with the dewy 7 AM grass grabbing the face of my clubs when I chip.  I marvel at the wind owning my would-be solid strikes.  Shots with altitude changes make it hard for me to judge distance. Slope-infested greens, insane heat, fairways in need of some rain, foggy mornings, etc, all create challenges. Which ones do you hate to encounter? Which do you thrive in? What stories can I get from you about your experiences in difficult conditions? Do you consider these conditions part of the game? A fun additional challenge? Something to be avoided when you can?
    • Speaking of white spray paint... a few years ago I carried a can of paint in my bag and painted the upper earth/dirt portion of the 4th hole cup at my local course (using a pre-cut template so no paint got on the putting surface) to resemble how they paint the cups for PGA events.  My golfing friends are essentially non-observant and didn't know this was done... which gives the pros a bright white target to aim at. An advantage we mortals don't get. They all loved putting at that cup.  I'm sure the greenskeepers were a bit surprised the next morning.
    • Full disclosure this is my 1st set of clubs fit to my swing. Im fairly new to consistently playing golf but now after a few lessons and plenty of practice have a fairly consistent swing. So i had an iron/wedge fitting done yesterday outside on grass and landed on I210s w/ KBS stiff shafts (tried T100/200, CF19, Epic, JPX 919 and I500 same day). Both the DG 120 and Project X were sp8nning too much. The fitter also recommended the following: 1) -1/2" shaft length. This has to do more with a small adjustment on the lie angle. Tape showed me center but slight toe action. My miss is left and ball flight starts a little left. His recommendation was to choke down and all balls went straight. 2) 1 degree strong from standard loft.  7 iron would carry 168 with club head speed of 91 (if i remember correctly), ball speed 122 and 95 ft at apex.  This may have been an adjustment to lower spin with shorter shaft.... I'm thinking about ordering these clubs standard length and loft to feel them out. In case there is small improvemwnt to my swing vs cutting length. I'd also just choke the club to test on the course a while before cutting the shaft. Lastly, although these are cast clubs and not forged I've also heard they are a little hard to bend the lofts/lies. I would guess a good club shop could bend these 1 degree at some time later, correct?  I'm guessing if this is true, it has something to do with the metallurgy. Appreciate the feedback to help my decision!
