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.

    • Fair enough. I wouldn't have the slightest guess on average trips per licensed driver, but I would think that using driver instead of car would be more accurate.
    • Lol. Well if you don’t want to reach your potential then you’re exactly right. So If by realistic you mean what you’re willing to work on, then yes. And I’m not knocking that at all. I personally have never taken up a sport with the goal to be as mediocre as possible but I’ve known those who are happy to just play regardless of how they do. 
    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be?
