Thanks. I did a search on Hal Sutton and scanned all the articles. I can’t find anything really negative on him. What leads you to have such a low opinion of him? Seems like a pretty good golfer.

This is to what he was referring, not Hal Sutton; it’s not Hal Sutton that is the issue, it’s the overstated important of the mental game

Thanks. That clears it up. I don’t speak for Hal Sutton, but I think he would agree. The anecdote he shared was that he pulled his caddie aside and told him, “There are three people that need to know I’m going to beat his ass. I need to know it. You need to know it. And Tiger needs to know it.”

Does that make Hal full of shit? Sounds like he agrees with the idea.

I don’t know how to respond to that. It sounds like he was stressing the importance of confidence and exuding that.  But I don’t think that makes the mental game more important than having a better skill set than your opponent...which is I believe what others here are saying.

I don't think it's Hal Sutton specifically, but rather the importance (or lack of importance) of the mental game.

This.

🤦‍♂️

This is the Tiger topic. It's not the "Hal Sutton is full of shit about the importance of the mental game" topic.

Tour pros say a lot of stupid shit.

P.S. You can be as confident as you want, but if the other guy performs better than you physically, he'll probably beat you. Also, Hal beat Tiger like one time. If Hal was a better player because he had a better "mental game" than Tiger or something like that, why didn't he win 16 majors and 83 PGA Tour titles?

Seriously, man, look at the other topics. Post there.

I recorded it, I think. I saw it was on, and then there was a later showing at midnight or something. I should have it, I think.

So… I thought I recorded it, but it was soccer.

IIRC, around that time he was with Harmon, and started shortening his swing, especially for wedges because he was flying over greens? And people were saying he won the Masters and he's changing his swing? That's ludicrous!

Wasn't sure where to post this, but here's an article from the Ringer on Tiger Tracker:

Tiger Tracker has been an integral part of online golf and Tiger Woods fandom since 2012. Who was behind it—and where did it go?

Sounds like there's a good chance the account is shut down for good.

There is no replacement for Tiger Tracker, but there are others to fill in some of the void. I follow twspot on Instagram. There are one or two accounts that are on the tip of my tongue, but not recalling the handles right now. Stopped following one of them because it was just too much Tiger Woods in the feed.

The twspot instagram account has been brutal lately. The guy is pimping some big rebrand ploy. Dude, we're here to follow Tiger's rounds and occasionally get a WITB. I don't need a breakdown on what the red, white, and black colors you're using for your new weird logo are called.

If Hal thinks it is all about the mental game, and his win over Tiger in the Players shows he was mentally stronger, then why didn't he outperform Tiger consistently?  

Because of the wide gap in their physical ability, that's why.

    • That's a very cool project, while challenging for the best players it does look like it has other options for the less talented when the winds are kicking up which is probably most of the time.    
    • BillChao, interesting point on the blind shots on the 'famous holes' course. We have a course here in Maryland called Renditions I have been meaning to play setup with famous holes as well. I'll need to take a look and make sure I'm not getting into something that isn't fun unless you've played it several times before.   I played a lot of golf today making the most of the last weekday of my week off. I played 2 balls on my 9 hole home course  in the morning and scored a 48 and 53, so close to my first under 100! I would have made it I believe, I got hit into on the last hole and whiffed two pitches that I'd been money on all day setting up a 2 putt. I had several 1 putt holes. Playing every day this week has made a tremendous difference in my putting....probably won't last once I go back to once a week golfing but it sure was nice making 7 and 8 foot putts on multiple holes.   My daughter had after school plans so I played 14 holes (they cut us off at 5:45) at Walden Country Club in the afternoon. Was paired with some really nice guys, my performance off the tee was terrible but I made a lot of good approach shots and my putting was really good. The course was packed so for pace of play reasons I didn't keep score, we did a bunch of tee-off rehits and drops to significantly better locations to keep things moving. I didn't feel tired at all but I wonder if some fatigue was leading to my terrible performance off the tee.   Stonewall Country Club tomorrow for the first time, looking forward to it but the layout might be tough since I'm not much of a distance guy. I may checkout 2nd swing golf for a new 3 wood in the morning...mine is a early 90's design and I wonder if something newer might help when I need distance. Hope everyone has a great weekend playing.
    • I've quit after 9 because of slow play.  I have never quit midround and don't believe I ever will.  
    • I purchased and am reading Lowest Score Wins. Great book so far!  Looking forward to practicing this weekend! Thanks!
    • I identify as "golf geek" thank you very much. 😉
