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.

    • Bomb and gouge won't go away with this.  Isn't the point of bomb and gouge already admitting not needing to hit fairways.  It has always been an advantage to hit bigger drives, even long ago; there just weren't any real stats to prove that up to 2011 (strokes gained) or so.  One guy on golf channel made a good point about being a bomber and being on the leader board. It's usually the guys bombing it and hitting fairways that appear there.  Bomb and gouge guys are further down.  No matter what they propose, distance will continue to be of the importance it already is.
    • I agree it is a skill. However, based upon the USGA and R&A report, assuming its veracity, the skill of distance has swallowed up the other skills to a large degree. Distance has encroached upon the other skills, the argument goes, to the point that bomb and gouge is the way to go. After all, distance leads to shorter clubs in, closer proximity to the hole, and more putts made—lower scores. They argue that there needs to be a readjustment to the importance of all the skills and the only way to do it is to temper distance. You could arguably do this via course setup and pinching in the fairways even more perhaps. However, unless the rough/obstacles are especially penal, it’s better to hit a wedge from the rough than a short to medium iron from the fairway in most cases.  Your point is merely going in circles. For the purposes of the argument, I assumed that it could be possible. This happens all the time in logical discussion—it’s called arguendo; it’s used often for thought experiments/discussion and in legal reasoning as well    Of course, I agree with you that if it’s not possible then it’s not a good idea. I don’t know how many times I have to say it. I’ve only talked about this further because others have replied to it. See discussion above. 
    • Thanks guys, I will talk to our club pro and go from there.  Rod
    • V, players on the Tour aren’t relying on the MOI. They’re not missing the center very often. Something that physically can’t be accomplished is a good idea? I don’t get that.
    • I think we're both saying the same thing. Maybe it came across as if I were defending MGS's tactic, but I was trying to make the point that what MGS does isn't anything close to science, in fact it is quite antithetical to how science works. If MGS were really scientific in any regard, they would publish their test methods and all the raw data, and encourage experts to prove their conclusions wrong. I'm 99.9% sure that ball manufacturers have extensive data on how their balls performs, probably much more rigorously tested than MGS. I wouldn't be shocked if the big manufacturers like Acushnet have extensive data on their competitor's products as well. Of course, publishing it is a different matter.
