I think Tiger is competing in the A flight in his club championship next week. Could be a big confidence builder.

I'd like at my take of the event from a spectators point of view. I'm between a 9-12 index depending.... and play about 100 rounds a year. I've been in person to about 15 PGA events. I have never b

Spent yesterday at Chambers Bay. What a fantastic course, just stunning to behold and looks like so much fun to play. I will have to play it in a season or two when I'm ready. I have to say that there

Well, it's been ages since I posted here, former writer at TST. I spent the Tuesday practice round and Thursday at Chambers Bay. It is expansive. Beautiful views of the sound and a golf course that lo

I've been watching Tiger's group online because it's interesting and because Rickie is my favorite and who I picked to win (oops!). I don't know if I feel good about the fact that even the pros can look bad or feel bad because as bad as they look, their score would be the round of my life even on a much much much easier course.

Ugh.

I think Tiger is Officially ... lost.  He has no clue where the balls going.

I hope it doesn't take 2 or more years to work it out.

This course is very fun to play. Chambers can be frustrating but if you are hitting your spots it's a real joy. I'm here now and the course looks (and feels) much better in person than on TV.

He should get humble, play 25+ tournaments next year, and fire all coaches if he's still hungry.  If he's not, hang up the spikes, spend some of all that money, and let us enjoy the memories.

Well you have your first outright player complaint of the greens....not surprising its Sergio.

I agree with him completely, but he is still a bitch since everyone else is playing on them.

Monty has been moaning about them on Sky's coverage 4 & 15 are the worst apparently.

There will be some tired glutes by the end of the week."

Henrik, win a major. Then win 13 more. Sheesh.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
