Tiger WDs from Firestone Event

Recommended Posts

After his tee shot on the ninth hole.

There's mounting evidence that Tiger Woods is a moron.

He looked in pretty bad shape changing his shoes in the parking lot. Wow.

Seeing tweets from people at the event that the back had been hurting since the 2nd hole.

He seemed to walk up the fairway after that shot from by the bunker just fine, on TV anyway.

I thought when he was standing there that he should be careful. It looked a lot like how he had injured his knee/ankle in the past. Turns out I may have been close… :(

He should take the rest of the year off, then quit. then figure out how to play golf again. It may not be with Sean Foley, but I don't necessarily think Foley's at all to blame.

Edit: Tiger says it's a different kind of back pain. It's in a different spot.

He definitely did not look good on the holes he played in round 4.  He had 65 yds left for his second on the 211-yd par 3. Made par, but one of the worst tee shots I've seen from a pro in awhile. Fatter than fat.

Moron?

I know injuries are common in golf....everyone gets them.........but this just seems a bit excessive. I've never seen anyone get hurt this much. I feel like over the last 7 years every 4th or 5th tournament there's a new issue....sometimes he plays through them and other times he can't. It's bizarre.

Guy doesn't know when is the right time to stop due to injury. On the bright side, TW, that's the RC captain, will have an easier time making his picks.

Yup. I really hope this isn't a serious and career threatening injury.

Mike Weir, Anthony Kim, David Duval, Paul Casey ... off the top of my head. Plenty of injured golfers, few of whom swing as fast as Tiger, none of whom are under ever a fraction of as much scrutiny.

I was really enjoying watching a tour pro hit crap shots (I kept saying "I got that shot")...feel kinda bad now that I now know he was hurt.

It may be, it may not be. But even if it is, in itself, trivial, he is becoming injury-prone. Every time he's injured he has less chance of returning to anything close to his best.

Louie O gets injured about every time he sneezes.

    • My answer depends on what you mean by "manage on the course."   I have a bag full of swing thoughts, because I have made the same mistakes so many times and corrected things so many times.  It's like a bag full of clubs.  I carry them around with me but I only use one at most when I'm addressing my shot.  But which one it is depends on what happened on the last shot or sometime in the recent past.  Then there are the times I have no swing thought at all, but hit a great shot.  But definitely I cannot have more than one swing thought in my head when I'm about to hit a shot. 
    • I voted 4 and 0, not based on the definitions you provided,  but based on your vote (9 and 1), and how I would compare my game to yours.   I think if you hit a solid shot 9 out of 10 times, then I should say I hit that kind of shot 4 out of 10 times.   I believe you would define "sweet spot" as much much smaller and more elusive than I would, but we have to agree on a definition, so taking your definition, which is really, "a spot you hit 1 out of 10 times," then I should say less than that.  So I said 0. 
    • I've been trying to get all the stuff J.C. talks about, but it's' tough. On a more serious note, I try to limit it to one or two.
    • So, what are you guys thinking? Hero Challenge? Torrey? Waste Mgmt? Florida? Augusta?
      Personally I'll believe it when I see it (or read about it), but he isn't dropping those tweets for nothing
    • Hi there! Thanks for posting, and I’ll offer my thoughts. Hopefully this is an interesting thread: 1. If my longest shots were 120yds and inconsistent, I frankly wouldn’t go out to score a round. Go and play,enjoy the outdoors, be with people, sure. But score? No. To me that’s irrelevant at that point.  2. I would use the practice range to improve, but course to just play. No swing thoughts. No frustration (ha). Just whack the ball on the hole. 3. The practice range needs to be focused practice.  You do not need a lot of full swings. There is a lot of info here on how to practice, and when I’m at a computer I can include links. 4. I think your instructor is perhaps giving you too much to think about. Confusing you. You need one thing (mayve two) as your priority. Your practice on that one thing can be slow. No injury. It definitely should involve video and analyzing how you are doing. No pounding away balls at the range. 5. I wouldn’t go score a round until I could hit my longest shots about 180 or so, with decent consistency.  Give yourself a chance to be near the green on a par 3 in one shot. Near the green on a par 4 in 3 shots. Near the green on a par 5 in 4 shots.  6. I’d choose a set of tees that are shorter than 6400yds for 18 to start. 6000 might be more appropriate. Move back when you can get on or near the green in say, 50 shots for a full 18 holes.  7. Consider a “member swing” thread here. Lots of talented people here who can do a check on what your instructor is telling you. I have a hunch your instructor is doing you a disservice by over complicating things and having a long list of stuff to do. Here it’s free. What do you have to lose?
