Rather not see him in the lead (Na either for that matter)- would rather see a shoot out with the worlds' best and up and comers (McIlroy, Fowler, Stenson). Right now Na, Kelly, Grace, Hearn, Kirk ---and Fowler.....not the greatest leaderboard by any means.....I know, there's a lot of golf left.

Oh so you're one of "those" fans, eh? Not a real golf fan, just a fanboy of the big names that get pumped up by TV and The PGA Tour. B-) Just ****ing with you, but you have to admit, your post kinda flys in the face of the criticism and scorn you heap on guys who root for Tiger or Rory. #BustedClosetFanboy

You should be proud regardless. You just used all three forms of the word "to" in a single sentence, and all properly.

not everyone can pull off the hat

I suspect he stopped playing so good....   ; ) On a separate note - I am SO GRATEFUL that the announcers are letting me know that the guys' hits are "golf shots". if they wouldn't say

Watching Tiger on pgatour.com live, I hadn't really noticed him lately, because he hasn't played, but from looking at hole #1, it seems he was attempting to read the putt off the green with his eyes, then stalked with green with his eyes ... did not see the feet at play. Could Tiger use some Aimpoint?

Don't know if it's disconcerting or gives one hope that Tiger can screw up a par 5 (#2) like I do ... Right!, across Fwy into left rough, into bunker, 8i over green, green, 2 putt.. 7

Yesterday (or Thurs), it was a Nike Method

I should clarify. His grip said Ping. Maybe i'm just a crazy person. Either way he looks timid with the putts. He looks really uneasy so far this morning. Watching the live stream.

I believe he has used a regular, blacked out or used a black-out Ping grip since he was an amateur.

Tiger's all over the place with his driver. Whatever work he put into his short game, he needs to put that same work into his driver. Just a mess. He's not going to contend until he fixes that, particularly with the US Open coming up.

Actually his Driver has been ok this week. Its his 3w that he has been duck hooking almost each hole it seems. He just hit a wonderful soft fade with his Driver on 5.

Every time he fools you with a good drive, he comes back and makes a disaster. He just made a mess of 9. Two doubles on par-5s today. That's ugly.

There are about 30 players that I'd rather see win other than Na or Kelly.

Tiger Woods made a double bogey on the ninth hole, his second of the round. He makes the turn at 4-over, tied for 74th place, which is last among all players who made the cut.

Hyped up by PGA? Umm, you mean by winning majors? I agree with watching one hit wonders being boring. The announcers fall for it every time ...some nobody has a good round/win and all of a sudden they're "someone to watch", James Hahn? Done. If I go to LOllapalooza, I'd rather watch Aerosmith, Stones, Geen Day, U2, Niel Young.... Not "and here's a little band from Indiana that had a popular song last year and made the top 10 on the Indiana music festival sponsored by Mentos" Let those guys play in the little tournaments and rack up their points like Jimimie Walker does. The Majors are for the big boys and so is TPC.

    • I would suggest putting up a swing video so that people can assist you better.  In general, very few people can generally have too much hip or shoulder turn.  Most have too little
    • Day 64, July 28, 2021: Three quarter swing feels today, same stuff I’ve been working on for the last month. 
    • It's finally arrived! Will dig in, hope it helps my game as it has for so many here!
    • The sickest thing of all though, is that in your country, refusal to take  it is seen by many as a requirement to prove allegiance to a cult. Additionally, you have people, as we do here, (and everywhere else) who are just plain and simple morons I was reading a post on Reddit the other where a nurse was encouraging a patient to get vaccinated. She said she wouldn't because the vaccine is made from the foetuses of aborted babies. When told that this was not true, she replied that it was true  - she had researched it. She followed this up by putting in a complaint to the hospital about the nurse, saying that she felt that she had been "judged".
    • What do you guys think about limit hip turn on back swing for greater hip turn down swing? I believe my swing is full hip and shoulder turn on back swing but only get a little bit open hip at impact. any drill to help me achieve this and get more hip turn on down swing? the best I can do at impact.
