Did anyone just see that Ken Duke celebration? That might have just been the greatest and whitest moment in PGA Tour history. I love Ken Duke.

Tiger is a complete disaster. His swing is too violent, too wild. He is done. He'll never win another tournament again, except maybe the B Flight in a Club Championship at a local muni.

Who are these nine idiots you found who took that bet. Basically, you are given a tremendous odds.

A fair bet (according to your assumption that Tiger will never win or will retire) is will he win before he retires at 1:1 odds.

In your case you will only lose $20 but have potential to gain enormous amount of money. That's not a fair bet.

No. You don't understand the terms.

If Tiger enters and fails to win a tournament, I win $20 from each person.

If Tiger enters and wins a tournament, I lose $100 to each person AND must return all the $$ I won previously.

I structured it this way so I don't have to wait several years to collect $$.

Right… only they do, and not only that, but they have to pay in the whole time as well.

I'll offer you straight up odds at $1000 apiece on the two things you stated:

  • Tiger retires at the end of the 2015 calendar year by citing an injury (I take no, you take yes).
  • Tiger wins a sanctioned PGA Tour event before he turns 46 (I take yes, you take no).

That's a pleasant surprise.


Maybe he can go -7 over the next 8 holes... okay, that's asking him to be SuperMan.

Getting between 12-14 under would wake up everyone, including Tiger's mental health.

Win is probably out of the question but FedEx points are important or else his season will end in a couple weeks. I don't have high expectations for him at Whistling so every birdie he makes is crucial.

It's a shame that even par yesterday would have put TW in contention today it looks like. Yesterday on a par 5 he hit a 340 yard drive in the fairway and the second shot was listed at 220 and it ended up 286 on a cart path. Still too inconsistent. I'm hoping either Rickie or Howell III wins. I always felt like the latter never lived up to his potential. Would be nice to see him get a W.

    • SOmetimes I play with a guy who loves Titleist Velocity balls, and he's mentioned that he thinks they are being discontinued so he has hoarded a bunch of them. I don' know if he knows this or just thinks that is what's happening.
    • Lesson 4/15: Discussed my sudden (or likely not so sudden) regression in ball striking over the last 11 holes. Teacher observed about three swings and identified an issue. Takeaway had drifted inside, and was very much a hands move without enough shoulder pitch or turn. Worked on feeling my lead shoulder pitch down and around, and the feeling is that my shoulders/torso are moving the club back and not the hands. Getting this sorted out is priority piece for the next month. After about 10 balls at slow speed, contact was back to center, with misses toward the toe side, instead of heel. AoA was 5-6 degrees down with 7-iron, path 2-3 degrees I > O, but still need to work on clubface control; some straight balls, some over draws, and some push fades - clubface control is a co-priority piece. Recentering/flow is good with irons, but as I transition into longer clubs like hybrid/3W, I hang back for some reason. Really need to feel a "fall" toward the ball with hybrid/3W, and less push off the trail leg, and more thought on rotation to arrest the fall. Worked on the priority piece with hybrid on the launch monitor after lesson, and the backswing priority piece was working well, and toward the end I had made some progress figuring out clubface control. From 230 yards out on the GC4 range, the bad L/R misses were still mostly within nGIR proximity, so if this is as bad as it gets as I fine tune this, I'm happy. Spend the last 15 minutes on the launch monitor hitting driver. I was pretty tired at this point, but swing speed was good, typical range around 110-112mph, with a max of 115mph.
    • For dispersion control, consider a shaft length between 44” and 45”.
    • Day 485: Lesson and an hour on the GC4 launch monitor afterwards. New priority piece to work on.
