I voted yes, I can't see him passing up an opportunity to win a major, if he's still committed to beating Jack's record, given the point he's at in his career.  Time isn't on his side so he needs to at least make the attempt.

Agree I can't see him passing up a shot at a major. Even if the chances are slim he can contend, slim is still a chance. However, I just don't know what his drive is like anymore. I don't know if he really cares as deeply about Jack's record as he once used to. A lot of rumors out there were that he just didn't have the drive to go out and practice the last 6 months like he used to. Hank Haney said Tiger used to be so driven to break Jack's record he would play 36-54 holes a day to get better. Now he just hits some balls in his backyard and says he's been practicing hard.

I hope he does play as my wife and I won Tuesday practice round tickets and we're taking our fathers.  Personally, I think that Tiger was taking HGH for many years and now that they are testing for it his body is braking down just like Mark McGwire's did after years of use. From what I have read getting off of it completely messes you up mentally and you lose focus. I believe that years down the road this will become public. This is just my opinion...

HGH does not result in microdiscectomy surgery.

Lol, I expected an onslaught when I read his post this morn. Pretty tepid response overall...

anybody know by when Tigs has to announce if he is or isnt?

I think it's like a week or so. Though he might be registered already and just withdraw to avoid that problem.

Am I reading your sentence correctly - you and your wife each entered the Masters ticket lottery and each, seperately, had your entry selected to win tickets?

Congrats, and I'm shaking my head as I'm at least 5 years into not winning the Masters ticket lottery.

More or less. I'm sure you could find out who is registered if you really tried hard enough. But yeah, they'd prob keep it quiet.

Only requires ones of them winning to get four tickets (one for each of them and their fathers) so no, I don't think he's saying they both hit the lottery. And the Masters doesn't allow husband and wife to both enter the lottery (no duplicate addresses).

There seems to be lots of chatter today.

It often feels like team Tiger has a way of changing the conversation before big announcements. I am not saying that they are good at it.

My guess is that he will commit early next week.

No, my wife won the 4 tickets. I did win some a few years back, but we were unable to attend.

Correct, we were not married when I won them years back.

Thanks for clearing that up. I'm fully aware and I wasn't referencing any particular injury, he's had multiple. Again, it's just my opinion.

I certainly hope he's going to play. I'll be in the IBM corporate area for anyone that wants to chat for a while. I look like the guy in my picture to the left. Go Tiger!

I'm willing to bet he does.  It's a Major and his favorite tournament.He has taken time off the heal and practice A LOT before it comes around.

I'm willing to bet he'll be non stop practicing the next couple of weeks.  Long long days of work.

Not enough time to get his game together. He does not want to look like a fool out there and will stay home. Should be back 2 weeks after that or some other smaller tour. THat is, if he is off of the pain meds, straight, practing 6 - 8 hours a day. Bet his day consists of 4 / 1 hour practice sessions, with a nap and a 8.30 wake up call...

Don't flame me, but if he's 50/50 he will play, too much money to be earned for himself, sponsorship commitments and hey he has nothing to lose, maybe lightening will strike.....worth the chance. Besides what else is going to do? Go skiing?

I could be more of a business decision than anything else. Do you think Nike or any of the other sponsors who are paying him millions are happy with his absence from the Tour? If he is physically able (and he says he is), he will play.

    • Would be tough to golf in Michigan...
    • I grew up playing in the wind in the St. Louis area.  Qualifying for the high school golf team or the university team (scant miles from St. Louis) in the Spring was hell!  I am no longer there and I will no longer play in the wind.  Period.  Even when I play WGT I set the wind at "low". But I will play in the snow.
    • I get annoyed with the dewy 7 AM grass grabbing the face of my clubs when I chip.  I marvel at the wind owning my would-be solid strikes.  Shots with altitude changes make it hard for me to judge distance. Slope-infested greens, insane heat, fairways in need of some rain, foggy mornings, etc, all create challenges. Which ones do you hate to encounter? Which do you thrive in? What stories can I get from you about your experiences in difficult conditions? Do you consider these conditions part of the game? A fun additional challenge? Something to be avoided when you can?
    • Speaking of white spray paint... a few years ago I carried a can of paint in my bag and painted the upper earth/dirt portion of the 4th hole cup at my local course (using a pre-cut template so no paint got on the putting surface) to resemble how they paint the cups for PGA events.  My golfing friends are essentially non-observant and didn't know this was done... which gives the pros a bright white target to aim at. An advantage we mortals don't get. They all loved putting at that cup.  I'm sure the greenskeepers were a bit surprised the next morning.
    • Full disclosure this is my 1st set of clubs fit to my swing. Im fairly new to consistently playing golf but now after a few lessons and plenty of practice have a fairly consistent swing. So i had an iron/wedge fitting done yesterday outside on grass and landed on I210s w/ KBS stiff shafts (tried T100/200, CF19, Epic, JPX 919 and I500 same day). Both the DG 120 and Project X were sp8nning too much. The fitter also recommended the following: 1) -1/2" shaft length. This has to do more with a small adjustment on the lie angle. Tape showed me center but slight toe action. My miss is left and ball flight starts a little left. His recommendation was to choke down and all balls went straight. 2) 1 degree strong from standard loft.  7 iron would carry 168 with club head speed of 91 (if i remember correctly), ball speed 122 and 95 ft at apex.  This may have been an adjustment to lower spin with shorter shaft.... I'm thinking about ordering these clubs standard length and loft to feel them out. In case there is small improvemwnt to my swing vs cutting length. I'd also just choke the club to test on the course a while before cutting the shaft. Lastly, although these are cast clubs and not forged I've also heard they are a little hard to bend the lofts/lies. I would guess a good club shop could bend these 1 degree at some time later, correct?  I'm guessing if this is true, it has something to do with the metallurgy. Appreciate the feedback to help my decision!
