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.

Why shouldn't The Golf Channel (and NBC) fawn all over this. From my point of view I wouldn't have paid much attention to this tournament if Woods wasn't competing. And from the coverage on ESPN and e

Haha, I would give you some rep for the humor in this, but I don't want to encourage you!  Instead, here's a Tiger fail gif for your enjoyment: Enjoy it while you can though... If he's

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'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.

Solid A in context to all that has transpired with his back in the last last few years.

Probably a B- level performance if 4-5 tournaments in.

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'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.

    • I was thinking “liquid metal” was what someone meant to be “hot melt”.
    • @Shorty, @boogielicious, and @iacas thank you for adding well-reasoned and factual statements to counter @Billy Z’s nonsense.   While I tend to agree to a limited extent that people can be overly sensitive these days, “Indian” and the equivalent (“red skins” and the like) are, as all of you pointed out, offensive—and not just a nitpicky level of sensitivity—but offensive to all reasonable people, given historical context and usage. Therefore, I think the ball club made the right decision. However, I’m not a fan of “guardians,” but I’m happy to see the change. 
    • This nails it. And if he read this he’d think..’yeah…another minion.’ 
    • In the video, one of them had #7 as their favorite hole 🙂 Then sadly he liked #9 Here are my course reviews... Lac La Belle - 6.0/10 Visually this course is good. The mix of fescue, bunkers, and marshy areas outline the holes nicely. There is a lot of target golf going on here. Some of the holes were a bit wonky, like hole #2. Also, the 600 yard par 5 was kind of bad. I am just glad that the fescue was not thick and tall, it was very playable from. If not, this course would be unbearable. The massive putting green with basically a putt putt course was really fun. In the end, it's a good course, but I would not enjoy playing this course a lot. Just too much target golf.  Course Layout - 5/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Lawsonia - 7.0/10 I really enjoyed this course. It has a unique style that isn’t around my area. Holes 1 thru 8 were good. For me, a bit too many blind tee shots. Holes 9-18 were more open from the tee. Luckily, there wasn’t much in the terms areas the ball would end up unplayable on the holes with blind tee shots. If you aimed over the mounds, and hit a decent shot you would have a shot at the green. There was a good variety of holes. This course was really fun to play.  Course Layout - 7/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 6/10, Clubhouse - N/A Mammoth Dunes - 8.0/10 A visually stunning course. It is much more of a friendly course than Sand Valley due to the green complexes having more areas to feed the ball into the green on errant shots. Each hole was like a problem to solve off the tee even though there was wide landing areas. I really enjoyed playing this course. The first tee shot of the day was really awesome teeing off from an elevated tee over looking over the expanse of the property. It really gives you a sense of the grand scale of the course. The bins of water on the course were nice since  you have to walk the course.  Course Layout - 8/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Sand Valley - 8.5/10 A visually stunning golf course. The green complexes are tough with a premium on hitting the flat areas or areas with backstops. Balls would routinely run off the edges where severe slopes were located at. When you miss the green, you usually had a few options to play. Mostly, the high risk through the air or try to putt it to a spot on the green for a longer putt. I think the back nine is much stronger than the front nine. Overall, I prefer the test of this course.  Course Layout - 9/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Bonus - Sandbox - 10/10 This little gem of a course is just a joy to play. Each green complex is unique and with the variety of pin placements and tee boxes changing daily, each time playing is slightly different. I thoroughly looked forward to starting every day at the Sandbox.
