I'm too lazy to go back and post the previous articles about how great tiger is looking in practice lol.. Don't these people ever get tired of posting the same stuff over and over?  I'll just wait and see when he plays to make a judgement on how he looks, as should they.

This is not the same stuff, reading the posts in chronological order, you're seeing a steady progression.

It's not, I saw TW eating ice cream, I saw TW eating ice cream, I saw TW eating ice cream, it's he's walking around not like an old man, he's swinging like an old man, he's swinging a driver now, now he's practicing in long sessions. 

I get tired of overexposure too, but this guy moves the needle like no one else, still.

From what I've heard, at one point Nike was very low on wedge blanks for tour players so they sourced some blank heads from Miura. The heads were ground by Nike tour club guys, were in play for a shor

I don't know if this has been brought up here before, but I just watched a YouTube video about Tiger's SixPeat - his six year run of 3 USGA Junior Amateurs followed by his 3 US Amateurs.

Agreed. It was well written with some new anecdotes, but the overall themes surrounding Tiger Woods remain unchanged by the article.  The major point I disagree with is definitively declaring tha

According to Rosaforte: Woods practicing in more protracted sessions. 4-5 hours.

Well that's the best news I've heard about Tiger. Hope he can make it back this year 100%.

I have heard on different PGA radio shows about rumors of a Tiger return at the Wells Fargo.

I just hope he doesn't rush it back...

I think you are misunderstanding what I'm commenting about.  I'm commenting on the specific "I've been told that woods looks great" comment.  He's practicing, that's great and good for him, but spare us the he looks great stuff..

Last time they talked about how great he was I think was when he shot a 59 in a worst ball practice or something and then we all know how that ended up..

Longform ESPN piece, haven't read it yet.

The Secret History of Tiger Woods

Quote

The death of his father set a battle raging inside the world's greatest golfer. How he waged that war -- through an obsession with the Navy SEALs -- is the tale of how Tiger lost his way.

You beat me to posting this by one minute. Really good piece. I'm not sure it's anything really that new, but really interesting nonetheless.

Really good read. One of the most comprehensive articles about him in a long time.

That was indeed a very good read.  It makes you almost feel bad for the guy.  Its a perfect example of the saying that money can't buy happiness.  He has everything and almost nothing.

Here are some videos from him at a clinic today: http://www.golfdigest.com/story/tiger-woods-conducts-clinic-at-junior-golf-tournament?mbid=social_facebook

Really makes you wonder when he's planning on teeing it up again?  @pumaAttack says Wells Fargo, which is only in two weeks and the week prior to the Players, but I'd buy that.  If not, perhaps its going to be Colonial or Memorial in prep for the US Open.

Who knows, but it will be interesting.

He won't play the Colonial, only did once, I think.  He'd do whatever he could to play Jack's event (which is another reason Jack is GOAT).  But, I doubt he'll be ready.  He'd be smart to put aside any thoughts of trying to compete this year.  It will demoralize him and then he'll truly be done.

Agreed. It was well written with some new anecdotes, but the overall themes surrounding Tiger Woods remain unchanged by the article. 

The major point I disagree with is definitively declaring that he's totally done. If Rocco bitch-ass Mediate can survive a horrible back injury and win the Frys at the age of 48, Tiger can salvage his game and win again... and maybe even throwing in his own Jack '86 moment as a bonus.

There have been many golfers who were once left for dead that came back and somehow found their game again, even if it was only for one year or one week. I obviously concede that the odds are stacked against him, but since his whole life is one big anomaly too, I'm inclined to at least keep that shred of belief alive.

Ultimately though, I have no problems with people thinking he's done. A fair opinion. I'm not gonna bother arguing the point much. It's just my opinion and I hope I'm right.

I agree, Tiger is a phenomenal athlete, if he wants to come back, he will do it.  If the article is accurate the real question is why is he coming back.  If Jacks record was never that important to him and he's preparing for a life without golf then why go through the motions if his heart isn't into it.   

I'm a huge Tiger fan and would love to see him make a run for Jacks record but if he isn't physically or mentally prepared to do so I'd prefer he just retire.  Golf is starting to recover from his absence, at this point it might be best for golf and Tiger if he retires.

Just came across this article by espn. After reading the Big Miss it gives a bigger insight into what really rocked Tigers world.

I thought the story was very well done -- although I don't really appreciate the whole "Tiger threw away the career with his SEAL/Special Ops obsession".......I don't care how much talent you have and/or what you possibly may accomplish, nobody has the right to tell someone what they can or cannot do with their lives -- if that stuff made Tiger happy, nobody has the right to criticize him for it.  

Anyway......big Tiger fan and just hope he finds fulfillment in his life

Bitici says that Tiger asked Rachel to meet him when he'd gone too long without sleep. Only after she arrived could he nod off. Bitici thinks Tiger just wanted a witness to his life.

Uhhh, no Bitici.

    • If it was a hockey fight BD would turtle in seconds.
    • How are you supposed to classify worst ever? How many times have I yanked out of the swing, left the face open, and hit a wild push-slice OB or lost? What makes one worse than the other? 🤣
    • +1. The mRNA vaccines at least have been shown nearly as effective against Delta as original. So, highly effective. Our problem is anti-vaxxers (both classic and Trumpist) and the public policy legacy of Reagan where a huge proportion of people will miss bills and whatnot if they can't work because of side effects, so haven't gotten it even though they want to. If we got to 80-90% immunized with current vaccine the pandemic would almost totally end in the US, at least until a vaccine escaping variant pops up somewhere.
    • You just posted what looks to be relatively current information.  It seems somewhere between possible and likely that boosters will be advisable, but details are lacking as variants keep occurring and data is continually being collected.  Stay tuned.  What seems more important is that more and more people get vaccinated to slow the spread and decrease the likelihood of additional variants.  
    • I had a worst shot yesterday. Our 2some invited the 3some behind us to join us to play #9, the last hole of our round. It was a 152 yd par 3,fairly straight forward. Wanting to make a good showing to the 3some, I hit first. I was having a decent round, but I topped the ball 50 yds then slinked back to my cart. I did get a bogie, and strangely enough, nobody bettered the 4.
