Didn't want to start a new thread, and it's Tiger related so here it is...

So in recent months I've been having a crisis of sorts...perhaps an existential crisis? IDK. Anyways, we don't have cable, I watch whatever free apps there are on Roku, and there's a PGA Tour channel that replays lots of tournaments from the past twenty years or so. Sometimes they'll go on a Tiger kick and replay a bunch in a row of his wins from the early 2000s. 

My crisis is this - It's becoming more and more apparent how much better the guys from the past ten years are than the guys from '97-2010ish. I'm watching Tigs beat up on guys who *seem* like chumps compared to the Rorys and DJs and Spieths and Rahms and Koepkas of today. 

I'm watching leaderboards filled with well known names, but who in my mind aren't in the same league. Guys like Scott McCarron, Bob Tway, Jerry Kelly, Bob Estes, Steve Flesch....

Even some of the bigger names like David Duval, Justin Leonard, Ernie Els, etc, don't seem quite as formidable anymore. 

I guess I just don't know what to believe anymore. It's like my whole world is a lie.

The Tiger Woods of the 2000s would have dominated the Tiger Woods of this decade too. He was just that much better than everyone that decade. The fact that he’s 44 and can still beat these very talented young players now just reinforces that. Even Phil, who is 50, can hold his own with these players. So it’s not a lie.
 

There are more of these good players now than in the 2000s for sure. But they come and go. We thought Spieth was going to dominate. Rory is great at times, as is Brooks and BD, JT, Rose, etc., but they can’t seem to string it together for long. No one will ever break the consecutive streak of cuts or weeks at number 1. At least not in my lifetime.

New ESPN bit on Woods.

Tiger Woods doing Tiger things.

 

That shot at 1:57 is so cool with the ball leaving and then re-entering the frame...

That clip pops up on my Instagram from time to time. Automatic watch. Traj porn.

I was definitely surprised to see him on the range after the round. Expected that would be out of the cards these days.

I would guess that it is more of a 'cool down' and tempo session than a practice or fixit session.

It was practice. He was looking at video and his data/numbers.

Reports of using a longer putter to take some strain off the lower back; lve not seen how much difference the newer putter is in length, I wonder kinda selfishly since my back restricts my freedom s, especially later in the round.

Not a big surprise, but here it is, he is playing the Northern Trust.

It’s official — Tiger Woods will be in the field at the Northern Trust when the FedEx Cup Playoffs start next week. He tweeted the news on Friday...

Ray Floyd played some his best golf using an extra long putter.  He used it conventionally, not anchored in any way.

Jason Day to Woods - Can you just explain things like a normal person? 😁

Case in point:

 

I thought Instagram didn't allow porn?

    • 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.
