Are you may have reason to worry.

Nah I doubt it but it's good to see him playing well for one day. A welcome sight. Just not sure he can do it for 4 days straight.[quote name="pumaAttack" url="/t/83482/2015-quicken-loans-national-discussion-thread/30#post_1177361"]Tiger attacking!! [/quote] You must be angry. If you don't like Jordan Spieth you must hate Tiger Woods. If you don't then you really are an anomaly.

I like Tiger and don't like Spieth. Spieth is too pasty. ;-)

I would never sponsor jeff overton; he's so sloppy looking, he makes the brands he is wearing look sloppy.

Yeah not a fan of him.

My dad and I were just talking about that. Whoever dressed him did a poor job; he looks like shit.

That's all fine and dandy. But puma said he didn't like Spieth because he was whiny on the course and "thinks" he's different in real life than he is with the media. Well, if that's the case, he must hate Tiger. If not, then color me confused. As for Tiger, I still miss the old swing. I miss the way he used to attack the ball on the downswing and the force he used. But if this new swing works, then all power to him. I understand with the back surgery he just can't swing with the same power.

I like Tiger but he is not my favorite.  I just want to see him succeed again, as it is great for the game of golf.

I like Tiger more than I like Spieth, that is for sure.

But he throws hissy fits on the course worse than Spieth and hes just like Spieth with the media? I don't get it. But whatever....you're a bit of a weird cat.

Impressive bounce back by Tiger today.......really hit the ball solidly after getting off to kind of a nervy start.....even the bogey on 4 wasn't bad....right over the top of the pin to an impossible spot

and love the response on the Como question.....Tiger is awesome

My original question as to why it bothers people when tiger acts up but not when Jordan does. I don't mind seeing some firey temperaments on the course.

Spieth is too pasty.


C'mon, You don't know pasty.

I think this backlash against Spieth is just that ... a  brushback against the media lovefest...

You have never seen pasty until you've seen Tom Kite with glasses upclose and personal -- I had to turn around in shock.

Jordan has personality, what is there not to enjoy with the running commentary, but no one moves the needle like Tiger.

    • Hi,  I'm a woman, 6' tall. It's all about swing speed, what feels good, and how well you can control it. Rogues are on sale right now and they're a good driver. I assume that's your reason for choosing them. The men's Callaway Rogue driver is 45.5". The women's is 44.5". But there really is no standard. It's all about what works best for you.  I play a Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic and cut the shaft to 44.5" for control. I use a "men's" R shaft because of my swing speed which is in the low mid-90s.  If yours is in the range of 80 - 95 you can use a Regular flex shaft. If it's in the 75 - 85 mph range you can use a men's light flex shaft (they don't call it senior anymore... lol because people don't want to feel old). Women's flex is for speeds below 75.  You'll find this out when you go on a launch monitor at the golf shop. You'll do this before you buy the club, right? Make sure you're fit for the club. Here's the deal, if the 45.5" is too long, you can always have the shaft "butt cut" 1". It will make the club feel lighter to swing but won't reduce the mass of the club head at all. You do not have to add lead tape to the club head and bring up the swing weight. But before you do that I'd wrap some electrical tape around the butt end of the grip about 1/8" thick with the bottom of that 1" down from the end of the grip. Then take it to the range, maybe play a practice round or two with it and see if you like that. If you liked it better longer, it's easy to remove the tape. 
    • This isn't poor etiquette. It's common sense. The only time this is an issue is if you strike when someone else finally decides to strike at that same moment after 30 practice swings. Then it's your fault for sure
    • Most golfers select a SW for the bunker conditions they face most often. Then, you can make adjustments for the odd course you play. If you normally have firm sand and play a course with soft sand, you can still get it out if you have good technique - you may not get it as close. It's about trade-offs. Not that many amateur players have a second SW with different bounce.
    • In high school I learned with the interlocking grip which was never comfortable for me.  Years later after reading Hogan I switched to the overlapping grip.  This took a year or two before I was comfortable, but still felt better for me. My hands are about the same size as "The Golden Bear's" which is average to small.   As I got older, I wasn't comfortable again so about 10-15 years ago I switched to the ten finger grip. Now in my mid-60's, this is very comfortable for me. Each change took a year or two before it felt natural.  Enjoy the progress of your adjustments.  There are other changes too as we get older, strengths, injuries, flexibility, aggressiveness, etc that require us to make modifications in how we play this great game. 
    • ??? A local high school coach who was once a 5 index golfer would say that. I hope that was some sort of typo or something.
