I give him an A. The chipping got better as week went on. Just needs to clean up Par 5 scoring. But he has irons into them and is swinging with some aggression. Looking forward to 2018.

I'll say B+ leaning towards an A-. Great to see him hitting the driver well and swinging hard at the ball. Definitely the type of play that he can built upon.

I'd give him an A.  Making the cut.  Completing 72 holes healthy.  Finishing in top 10.

Considering many thought he might never play again, it is remarkable.  Had Fowler not played a career round today, Tiger could have been less than a half-a-dozen strokes off the lead.

A-

Given how little golf he's played, how much he was struggling with his swing a couple years ago, how few rounds he's shot under par when he has played and how many surgeries he's had. I can't imagine any other player going through what's he's gone through physically and coming back and shooting -8 for 4 rounds in his first tournament at a course that isn't a pitch and putt.

Not sure if this would affect your grades or not, but be aware that there were only 18 players in this tournament and there was no cut.


I’d go with a B.  He played good, hit it far, showed flashes of great shots and seemed pain free.  Excited for his next outing.

B+. His bad day involved miscalculation more than bad form. He shouldn’t have made those mistakes. But overall he was really good off the tee, with approaches and around the greens. Very encouraging.

B+. He is a remarkable golfer. I'm sure he will work on the approach and short game. Plus, I felt, on the third day, he really went after a little too hard which might have affected tempo he had first two days. All in all, though, much better than I anticipated. -Marv

I'm not grading on a curve just because of his injuries.

Come on, man! Everyone said this guy was done. That he should retire and do something else. He just beat world no.1 Dustin Johnson by eight shots over four days! How am I grading on a curve?

I'd give him an A-. He was practicing a lot before the Hero. Looks like his back is holding up. Haven't tuned in to a press conference to hear how much PT he's getting, but everyone goes to the trainer's bus.

A-

I haven't seem him drive the ball that well in at least 10, maybe 15 years.  Makes me wonder if a lot of his driving woes have been on account of back problems.

The chipping was poor to terrible though.  Maybe with his health he can devote more time to it, but I wonder if he plays those shots with too much forward shaft lean.  Of course, I'm a 13 and suck so maybe shouldn't get into technique.  He probably lost a half dozen strokes on account of poor/mediocre chipping. 

I was a bit disturbed when a reporter asked him after his first round if she'd seen him take Advil during that round, to which he said yes.  But then he lied, saying he wasn't in pain but it was just his doctor's orders.  No way.  A MD might tell you to take advil if you were having symptoms but wouldn't just have you take it if all was great.  So, that bears watching.

    • Also, be aware that some golfers hit hybrids better than fairways. And others hit fairways better than hybrids. Hard to tell from your info. I would suggest a diagnostic fitting with current long clubs. This would show what performance you are actually getting from each club.
    • There's levels to this stuff dude.  I don't think you realize how few PGA tour golfers have the game that suits all course setups. 
    • These guys play a game of which Jack is not familiar.
    • Really to quote Jack, saying the course doesn't suit your game well Hello your game needs to suit all different course setups...
    • I’m just curious if you know his swing speed compared to yours? What ball is he using? And of course the golden question for me is, have you switched drivers just to see the results? I mean, if he hits your driver 10-20yds further than you using his……
