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.

    • The shaft is the "imponderable medium" connecting the golfer to the club head.  The more "ponderable" it is...the more one has to think about.  That can be beneficial or otherwise.
    • I am a big believer in fittings, although I have never been fit myself (only got serious about the game a year ago. Watching TY (TXG mostly), I have seen what it can do for some people. When it comes to shafts, I am less of a believer. Shaft weight and stiffness certainly play a role in getting a great fit, but more important is gapping, lie angle (I lump length in with this because the correlation is heavy), and the proper heads. I am by no means an expert on this stuff, but if I do go for a fit, those 3 things are what I am going to ask about the most. If you are going to buy new and they offer you a crazy good shaft (usually at a crazy price) based on numbers that are marginally better, I would ask to try the "stock" shaft closest in weight and stiffness to the exotic. They will be different, but not enough to warrant the price in most cases. There are outliers where the exotic is a big upgrade that warrants the price, but those are few and far between.
    • Eberts, the restaurant at Green Valley Ranch Golf Course is open for outdoor terrace seatings.  Went there for dinner last night - first time eating out since this all started.  
    • A lot of practice greens don't have the same conditioning as on-course greens. My suggestion would be (Step one) to try for the practice green, but only for 5-10 long putts (you can play many more short ones if you wish). You don't want to get too grooved in if the on-course greens are substantially different. (Step 2) After that, you pay SUPER close attention to the speed on green 1. Remember that green speed also dictates amount of break. If you get to hole one, and it's slower, and you miss high side, remember that the high-side miss wasn't because you misread it, it is because the green is slower. I have been on fire with the putter lately, and I think that this is why. Just be very perceptive on the first green, basically. For my pre-round, I am going to vote for the least amount of practice, only because I make lots of tee times straight after work, and I literally don't have any time to practice pre-round. Most of my weekend rounds I get to the course early though. 20-30 minutes is usually the mark for me, forgoing range balls (gotta pay for them thangz), and going straight to the practice green to get my chips going. I usually putt for 3-5 minutes and spend the rest chipping. As I am a player that doesn't hit the green in regulation that often, I want to make sure that when I am close, I have my strokes dialed in for those short yardages. I usually only use the 52 degree, as I can predict what "distances" I will get on the greens for the rest of the round.
