Haney was back pedaling today after his accusations yesterday that Tiger hadn't practiced lately and would struggle this week at Quicken Loans.  His explanation today for Tiger doing well is that only 5 of the Top 50 world best are playing this week.  If Hank's trying to smooth things over with Tiger he's got an interesting way of going about it.

Tiger really has to thank his short game so far.  First Fairway now on the 8th! :dance:

He hit his approach 50 yards past the green? :-O

Looks like Tiger is back to normal again.

Who is to say what is normal any more.-The guy could retire after the PGA or win it (or at least win tournaments in 2016). We do not know.

Until he stops scooping his driver and start attacking the ball with power the way he used to, normal will be what we are seeing today. I've seen this "scoop it" approach with his woods all year and it's leading to these god awful drives. We don't see them as often on the driving range for some reason.

Well no yips what so ever for Tiger. Scrambling to the max. More big misses..... And back to back birdies. He's got it in him to win again.

got tired of being in the trees?

It is just sad when T. merrit shoots 10 under and Tiger is hanging around +2 at the moment.. To follow up the great round yesterday with this today must be frustrating as heck.. It's not like the conditions or the set up weren't conducive for them to go low.. Where does he go from here??

He's swung well the last 4 or 5 holes. He was swinging down hard on the ball more like we were used to seeing and not "scooping it" like he was the front 9.

I disagree.... ....that was a SPECTACULAR shot! :bugout:

Yeah, pretty much. But a joke round on a day everyone else is taking advantage of the conditions.

I'm not surprised by Tiger's play. He seems to take a step forward then two steps back. Ugh

    • Im quoting myself here (mods be kind) as i really was hoping someone may have thoughts to share. I likely didnt write enough in my last post and didnt think this warranted a new thread. Ive been on a very nice health and fitness routine for almost all of 2019. I lift full body 2x a week (because of work/life sched cant do splits), i stretch almost daily and do kettleball/band/etc golf training routines 2x a week (which i stole from my friend who got it from his TPI trainer). I was "skinny-fat" and in pretty bad shape (relatively) pre 2019. Now, my flexibility has definitely increased (easy to tell from stretches) and ive got big noob gains in lifting for 6 mos now (4 yr break from lifting). Ive lost about 20 lbs of fat and gained a ton of muscle (again noob gains). Note, im a skinny guy in general, always have been, but during my best years I resembled one of those athletic skinny tennis players. Everything about me feels fitter and stronger and more flexible. But my club distances are the same (at best) as pre 2019, and im more inconsistent than before. Without the intimate details of my swing, i dont expect to hear conclusive advice about my predicament, but would love if anyone had any similar stories. I love my swing coach and will continue to take lessons regularly. I find it really peculiar, as i mentioned previously, that my tennis game has completely turned around (ive always played near equal parts golf and tennis). Every part of my tennis game is materially better. Im faster, more consistent, better conditioned, and have a crap ton more power. What the heck is up w my golf swing. Pretty disappointed to be frank.  
    • Thanks guys. I am super curious how new balls compare to these and the relics in my bag. I've gotten to the point where my swing is repeatable again and I'm hitting balls in clusters at the range. I may go to the pro shop at the range and grab a few sleeves and experiment in a few weeks. I'm pushing the ball out past 300 yards again, so I'm assuming the range balls are quite beat down compared to my Maxfli, Top flights and anything else in my bag that's still shiny. If I'm not getting any real appreciable distance gain from a new ball, I won't buy anything. I have almost 10 dozen balls NIB from the late 90s through 2000s and now 22 dozen new balls. I doubt I'll ever need to buy a new ball again. I say that knowing how I spend money like a drunk sailor on leave hahaa
    • I have a few of those in my bags. Balls I was convinced were the ball and I protect them like a mother hen hahaha
    • Hello! Thanks for always answering my beginner queries lol! Yes, green dot was the static fitting done by myself with the chart. I guess in reality this may vary!   EDIT: Plus, a pro I visited the other day to change my grips told me I didn't need to bend the irons because of the lie angle, that the lie angle was ok. He also told me those were sort of crappy, but that's a different story lol
    • Hello there! Was your ‘green dot’ fitting just a static read? If so, it’s really just guesstimate as to what will fit you best. Ping i3-O can be bent to 2 color codes I believe. But for now I would focus more on developing good mechanics and then dive into a fitting. Cheers!
