Brandel Says He Was Wrong About Tiger

He was 180 on Thursday, 178 on the holes they showed it Sunday.  Not sure if that is meaningful or not.  Speaking for myself, 2 mph feels like a lot (I'm just over 100 and hit 104 occasionally).  But who knows if he concentrated on swinging smoothly, if he was tired, or if the callibrations were different somehow.  Don't know enough about the technology. 

2 MPH ball speed (not clubhead speed) is not very different.

Good point, I was mixing stats there.  So really just over 1 MPH of club head speed.

It fluctuated.  I think it was best on Friday, good on Saturday, less so on Sunday and Thursday.  That kind of thing seems like it would be a very simple "fix" in that it would just take repeptitions to get the feel back.  But who knows?

Yes, it was not consistent. He hit some very good shots around the green, but many poor ones too. I did see a number of other guys hitting poor chips & pitches from those collection areas near the greens. The announcers (for what it's worth) attributed many of those to the Bermuda grass. Even so, Tiger seemed below average on those shots. If he's going to contend, he'll need to improve that.

He just admitted to being wrong to get people to think he is human verse the cold blooded lizard we all know he really is. Plus he has had that bad PR with the "Dufner" so throwing a bone towards the good guys may help him with some of the golf community...

Twitter got a character limit on usernames, max 15. They had to throw out one letter and probably went with the missing c.

That would be a good reason to misspell it.

Wow, 15 is lower than I imagined it would be.

Nice to see him admit a change of opinion... Loved seeing Tiger back - does anyone have an idea of how the ratings compared to other tournaments across the year?
