And many of Tiger's chipping critics are notorious for commenting and often knocking most things he does. If Haney says anything about Tiger I just assume it's BS. Same with Blandel.

so you disagree that changing so many swing coaches and revamping the swing was a good move by TW?

Yes, there are a lot of people out there who don't know what they are talking about...

on this message board as well

we'll see how he does in the long term

@Rick Martin , that's the play you make when you hope that people will forget what you said by the time it has been "long term." Plus, if people come back to you in six months and say "see?" you can just say "that's not long term enough."

Bill Harmon, Hank Haney and several other experts disagree w/ you.

Phil who is a short game wizard and not a good friend of tiger disagrees with both of them. Opinions are like ...... nevermind.

[From Hank Haney's Website]  But scientists are now starting to unlock the true root of the problem: a combination of motor skill problems that cause a player’s brain to distort the message being sent to the muscles.

All those talking heads that were sure Tiger had the yips, all said the same thing.......that you simply can't just "practice" the yips away....if this is true (like all the "experts" said) then it logically follows that Tiger's recent turnaround proves he never had them.....

Agreed.

People with the yips don't just have near-perfect short games (or short putts, or tee shots, etc.) for three of the most pressure-packed days of the year on the tightest lies to the slickest, "slopiest" greens.

It's not like Hank Haney's never been wrong.

there's no logic involved - from his full swing to his short game, long term will tell if he's really back or has found a band aid fix.

You don't bandaid the yips. Snead tried everything from croquet putting to side saddle, and when the pressure was on it almost always came back.

@Rick Martin , on this, you're just off target. You don't "find band-aid fixes" to everything in a few weeks. Not at the PGA Tour level.

Please specifically define the "long term" so that I can set a calendar reminder to come back here and revive this thread. You failed to get the gist of my earlier post on this. It's a cheap way out because by saying "long term" everyone will have forgotten about it, and if someone revives the thread in three months, or six months, you can say "that wasn't long term enough."

Are you willing to wager any amount of money on this?

Set a date. Tell me a dollar amount. Keep it under $500 because I don't want to wonder if you'd pay up for a larger amount. @PiustheDrGolf still owes me $100 after all…

Yeah, If Tiger's short game performance at Augusta is the play of someone with short game yips I want to know where to sign up to get my own yips.

    • Had simultaneously the best round of my life and the most demoralizing round of my life. My 3rd week of league play I was even through 7 holes and honestly should have been 2 under I missed a couple birdie putts short by a combined maybe 3 inches. I was driving the ball incredibly well and my wedge game was on point, for the most part, I almost holed out 3 different times and left myself plenty of make able putts. This was my first time ever birdieing hole 5 which was awesome to bounce back after a fat approach shot led to a bogie on 4. Hole 8 was the same thing I pushed my drive far right hit my approach too fat and ended up with my second bogie making me 1 over heading to the par 5 9th and this is where I absolutely fall apart. The 9th is a shorter dogleg left par 5 where you can take a chance to cut the corner if you're a bigger hitter but if you come up short you can go OB or leave yourself behind plenty of trees. I hit (for the circumstances) one of the best drives of my life I cut the corner and was just a few yards short of the fairway 145 yards out. Roughs were really long I clubbed up to an 8 iron was hoping to just swing easy and get it on the green thoughts of going under par are swirling in my head. Well I'm behind a short tree that isn't really in play and I'm just 30 yards or so from a small pond the pressure must have set in because I hit a horrific hossle shank that shoots right on a 45 degree angle and skims off the pond thankfully staying in play and still in good position. I'm just 95 yards out now I've had that distance a few times already and was confident I was going to put it close, boom another hossle shank. I'm now about 40 yards right pin high I'm like just "put it on the green ensure yourself a bogie at worst", boom a 3RD STRAIGHT HOSSLE SHANK. I'm cursing my life at this point I'm 20 yards behind the green I finally chip up to the fringe close enough to putt I hit a decent one lagged up to about 2 feet I have that to save a 39 and of course I lip it out to triple bogie and finish with a 40. I kind of wanted to cry lol but if you had told me before the round I was going to shoot a 40 I would have taken it. Through 3 weeks I am the low scorer in our league of 32 guys my first year playing (admittedly mostly hackers) but this damn 9th hole performance is going to haunt me for a while. .  
    • Yeah, no. But thank you. We can now rightly ship your takes on golf courses without even reading them.
    • It has a lot more than that. Have your “own eyes” actually seen the course in person? Didn’t think so.
    • I have not had to deal with complete incompetence in a boss but certainly had tough bosses who I have had deep differences with. I have come to learn that bad bosses are like tough courses. Gotta play good target golf. Has forced me to become a good manipulator of my limited talent whether it comes to paying in kind with passive aggressiveness when I can't hide, selective ass kissing to dumb them down or deploying the ever available and easiest but the most effective skill of selective hearing. Wears them down the most. Who hasn't? Ha ha.  Welp, haven't heard an overly gushing compliment of how good a boss I am  myself and I am sure I have employees who would love to trip me so that I would break my other ankle to match so who am I to complain?..😄
    • Thanks for the replies.  Ive decided against dept store box set and the $550 bag.   Im going to keep what I have, but add a 22/23 hybrid and lose the 3 and 4 irons.  The rest is fine until I decide whether or not to stick with it.
