Hmmm.  I wonder which social media he is referring to....  If that was true, you would think the media would have been all over the news.

Quote

And so, during a teleconference Tuesday morning previewing the Masters, Golf Channel analysts Brandel Chamblee and Colin Montgomerie were asked the following question: I think it’s an easy question, but do either of you see any chance that Tiger plays?

“I do. I do,” Chamblee answered. “If you can believe anything that you read on social media – I know that his coach has been down there, and they’ve been hitting a lot of golf balls down in Palm Beach. The way I understand it, he’s been practicing quite diligently. So it wouldn’t surprise me if Tiger showed up at Augusta National.”

Does anyone know if all invites to the Tournament get to practice early, IF THEY WISH ? In other words, could Thomas, and Speith be there this week playing it several times. Curious if there are rules involved...

Spieth is a past champion so he can go there and play whenever he likes.

For non past champions in the field, I know they can go there and play a round in the weeks/months leading up to the event. I'm not sure if Augusta actually quantifies how much they can or can't play or if it's more of an unwritten courtesy and they expect you to use to privilege sparingly. I'm guessing they quantify it.

I like DJ, Spieth and Rahm.

So when does Tiger have to commit or not?

The good news is anyone who wins next week is going to be better than that pasty punk who won last year. Guys like him will make ANGC rethink their lifetime invite policy.

Dude, and there I was enjoying having a fellow Duane fan on the board (he gave Clapton a guitar lesson on Derek and the Dominoes)...but that's incredibly off-topic. But then you went and said something mean about Danny W.

Willett won fair and square. He's basically another Ian Woosnam - a Brit who won the Masters and sod all else. I hope to see him posting scores of 91 two decades from now, with a big smile on his face. Maybe I won't have to wait two decades.

On a wholly separate topic...

One can CTRL + F search across this story: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/mar/29/jordan-spieth-dustin-johnson-masters-houston-open for "Rory" or "McIlroy" and return precisely zero results. It's as though his colleagues have already identified his albatross... he's not even in the conversation for the Masters in news stories driven by his immediate peers.

Yes it was fair. But the sentiment is that DW didn't do anything amazing to win. He was in the right place at the right time. He played great golf. But he didn't do anything unusually well, Jordan did something unusually bad.

Unpredictability: something that makes sports so much fun to watch.

We can all hope for that :-D

No doubt he won fair and square. That doesn't mean I have to like him though :-P

I can't bet on DJ. 

Dont care for Willet much he was in the right place at the right time.

Couples time is done...I will root for Spieth.

Just have to see what develops this year.

Absolutely. I'm thinking Rahm finishes top 10. I do hope it's a tight run on Sunday..it usually is. Willet won't make top 20.

That's Dechambeau. Rahm is ranked 14 after playing only 15 tournaments. I think he's the real deal. B. Dechambeau is a flop.

I'm not sure Rory can get hot enough putting to win. If his long game is at his A game, he might not have to. 

Dustin just seems to be the most consistent golfer right now. Augusta does seem to fit those who hit the ball longer than those with average or shorter than average driving distance on tour. 

I'll probably root for Rickie to win the Masters.

Have you been keeping up with his career? Did you watch last week's WGC where he was 5 down to the World's #1 and came back to lose by only 1 (in the Finals by the way)? If that's not character, not sure what is. While like him in the Top 5, and he may not win, your logic of questioning "if he has what it takes" under pressure is flawed....he did better than  Spieth in both of those events.

Even as a Brit I'm not his biggest fan, but that's a little unfair. He played some sensational golf that day (his birdie on 16 stands out) that was overshadowed by that Spieth moment.

    • I said 4-6, which is round dependent for sure. If my timing is on I can strike a lot of very solid feeling shots, but the clubs I use could be masking those off center hits with the forgiveness built into them. I can also mishit pretty horribly those same rounds. If I'm having a really bad round I'd probably struggle to hit 1-3, but I don't know that I go a full round without hitting at least one flush shot. Of course, I could be completely delusional too.
    • View this round on GAME GOLF Really my second full individual round(a stroke play event), or 4th if you count scrambles, on the year.  I am actually hitting my driver and irons decently as far as path and face is concerned and for distance as well.  My driver play is going especially well considering the lack of play.  I am definitely struggling a bit with low point but not as much as I thought I would. Had some great shots out of bunkers as well. I can't seem to figure out my wedge distances as is fairly obvious from this round.  My new Glide 2.0 wedges are confusing me a bit on some controlled distance shots.  I kind of miss my Edel wedges for that.  My touch around the greens is just not in form right now as would be expected.  I had some three putts out there but these greens are some of the toughest multi tiered greens I have played on.  We played with a scratch guy out there who shot a 77.  If i catch one thin or toe it a bit the hand also is in a fair amount of pain yet.  I look forward to the continued healing in the hand as far as that goes.   If i can avoid injuring myself this winter I hope to play a lot more next season.  Hopefully I can get out to Erin Hills and Sand Valley.  If anyone would be interested in playing theses courses next year with me, let me know. I am a bit on the fence over if I should work on the swing and try and get rid of the Furyk/Moore like loop or if I should just own it as it seems to be giving me the best face/path relationship I have maybe ever had.  At the end of the day if I can shoot in the low 80's from time to time next season I think it should be a lot of fun to play again.  
    • I’m typically around 4-6 if not even a bit higher. My issues come when I miss I miss big and start bringing big and crooked numbers into play
    • I don't know that that is accurate, and it definitely depends on the state.  In Colorado and California, for example, medical marijuana is exactly the same as the recreational strains available in dispensaries.  The difference is the level of taxation.  I did find one article that stated that 14 states limit THC potency, but after researching state-by-state wasn't able to pin that down.  I don't disagree that it's possible, but will argue the efficacy of doing so.  But to your point - Florida is considering legislation to limit the potency to 10% THC because levels above that "can induce psychosis in some users" (anyone seen Reefer Madness? 😄) A fools errand - the pot our parents smoked was around 7%, with the high-end "sinsemilla" coming in at around 9.5%.  It still gets you high.  Admittedly, the strains produced these days are much stronger, with 18-20% being considered high potency, and 30% being the upper limit for flower.  Extracts from marijuana plants, like hash oil, generally come in between 50 - 80%. To tie it all back together so I'm less off topic - regardless of the THC level, marijuana impairs a person mentally more so today than it did 20 years ago.  Golf is proven to have a significant mental component, aligned closely with the physical aspects of the game.  Thus weed absolutely has a negative impact on ones golf performance - though it might make a shitty round more fun.
