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

    • Hi All! I started really making an effort to improve my game this summer. Took a couple of lessons and really started to make good contact with the irons and stop pulling the ball. Getting confident there. Now, I'm having a crazy issue with the driver.  The last time I was hitting my driver straight-ish, I had the ball way farther back in my stance than seemed natural for a driver, basically in the middle of my stance. The ball would be low but for the most part straight. I moved the ball forward in my stance, and all hell has broken loose. Now every shot with the driver is a hard, low-arcing hook that starts way left and stays way left. My swing with the driver doesn't feel comfortable at all. I'm going to take another lesson and ask about it, but I was wondering if any of you had had a similar experience. Any advice would be appreciated.
    • Actually he did. They have two of the booths with the screens that show your ball flight and all the numbers they use. He had some other electronic device he was using behind me. This place is a really nice golf course with 27 holes, plus a really nice practice facility. They are supposed to be the best in Wisconsin for club fitting. It took me all day to get there, get this done and drive back. I sure do hope it works out!
    • At least the guy in the store didn't tell you that you were standing too close to the ball after you hit it.  Old joke.
    • I have played Ping GI (GMax) for the past three years. I also start my irons at 6i. I made sure they were a good fit at the time I bought them.  Mine are Ping, red, senior shaft.  I, too, had some difficult getting used to those shafts. I had used steel shafts for decades. It took a while of practicing my 6i,7i and 9i, one club at a time  My coach tore down my swing with these clubs to the basics to get to the level of confidence I have now. We videoed everything, including grip for each club.  We discussed the target range and loft of each clubs.  While you are tending, I think, to see these clubs as a "set", I was told to treat these as individual clubs only.   I have also used tape and spray to mark just about every practice shot I took.  And for a while I need every shot to look for patterns (I tend to hit more towards the toe.) After I examined the markings, the pattern of mis-hits was clear and that gave my coach a clear view of what needed correction. As well, we took it down to position of the face of the club at every point of the swing. We slowed down the swing until I felt comfortable with it. Finally, everything was combined into the swing I now use. Finally, we looked at any changes I might make for each of the clubs.  It took about a month of this kind of steady practice.  Now I am happy with the shots around 90% of the time. Like you, I do choke up a bit on these clubs more than my 3 hybrids.  As many have said, there could be many reasons these are not working for you. I suggest making a video and posting it on line here at TST.  
    • I know I still have a long, long way to go but this is my before swing:   Cutting way across the ball, weak slices, shanks, over the top, out to in - you name it horrible, horrible. Then after one evolvr lesson 6 days later:    Still not pretty at all, but my instructor has got my grip stronger (with my right hand at least, still working on my left hand) and I've got a sensation of trying to leave the club face more closed throughout the swing and bowing the lead wrist more, even though I'm not in reality. Ive had dramatic improvements in ball flight. Hitting a mix of straight shots, draws and occasional hooks now, and all but eliminated slicing, Gained a lot of distance too. It's turned things around for me to be honest. Now I am working on strengthening the grip with the left hand, turning out my left foot and angling my neck to match my shoulders, as per my instructors advice. Any further suggestions welcomed. Im pretty sure Im flipping the club a lot and adding loft.
