He does hold the course record

72-HOLE RECORD: 266, George Burns (1987), Tiger Woods (1999).

I hope he does well but I think it's a MC this week.

Based on his Hero event, I say 25th to 50th.  It seems weird to have a healthy Tiger, and for me, to not put him in full contention.  I just don't think he's quite ready for it yet.  Another few events to warm up in, and he may surprise us.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see him contend. But I don't see it happening. Will he contend at some point this year? Absolutely. I think he plays at Torrey solid and back doors a top-20.

I voted "Finishes middle third (25th to 50th, roughly)".    Everyone will be excited to see him play again, myself included, but I believe his driver will be the difference between him placing high or finishing in the middle third.

So so first round, strong second round, makes cut, then two middling rounds to finish outside the top 50.

I hope I'm wrong.

Lol lol lol!!!

I'm really looking forward to this, I was so impressed by his driving in the Hero, can't wait to see if this is going to be a trend going forward.

I'll say he finishes in the middle third. Unless he wins. Then I'll say he wins. But probably middle third.

I voted 25th to 50th and will go a little more detailed and say he finishes 35th. I think he has at least one day of the first two that make people go wow he’s back to his old tiger winning self and then a meh weekend pushes him down the leaderboard.

    • 72 last week at TPC Summerlin from the TPC tees (6400) in maybe one of the coldest conditions I've ever played in. 71 today back home, hit 15 greens. Missed four birdie putts within 5ft and got a bad break where I drove it into a bunker and it plugged in the lip (made bogey). Not bad for the range being closed and only getting to practice once this week and not much last week either. This was my drive on 15, and it wasn't like it was a high fade, solid medium flight draw.  
    • Yeah it was a dumb move PR wise to not be very generous with the bonus.  Can't really compare the usual rate with that week with Ortiz, completely different situations. John Wood is there for him every minute of every week, scouting the course beforehand, getting yardages, mapping greens and paying for his own travel. They can also act as emotional "support" and the good ones figure out when to give it and when to hold back. Ortiz is nowhere close to building up that "sweat equity" to earn 10%. If I was John Wood I would have been very insulted if my guy paid a temp caddy 120K.  
    • “How much should you pay?” questions tend to select responses. How much should you pay for a car? Obviously the guy who paid over a million for his McLaren doesn’t think everyone should; that’s the whole point of having one. Likewise, the guys with the $2k custom Scottys want something exclusive.   So it makes sense that most of the responses are $300 or less. If you just want to make putts, and know basically what you need in terms of length and style (mallet, blade, etc.), I don’t think you need to spend more than $100 on ebay. I’ve sold several perfectly serviceable and respectably branded putters for less.   Personally, I paid $350 for my Evnroll ER5, which I love. I like it so much that I’m going to spend even more for the black one when it becomes available. It was a subtle difference between the ER5 and my Ping Tyne ($189, I think), that it replaced. But given a choice, I’d choose the Evnroll every time. I can’t afford — and have no desire — to run with the big dogs when it comes to putters. And if I couldn’t afford a $350 putter, I think I’d do ok with any of the ones that I sold. But it’s a hobby, and it could be worse. I could be collecting large stationary engines.
    • If you have enough bounce you could have the 52 bent to 50. 10, 15 bucks perhaps.
    • 1. "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge: Consistently practicing and posting my streak. Making it a habit to maintain my skills and level developed over the years. 2. Bogey Player: By end of 2019 play in Texas and score at least three games under 90. Focus areas:
      Develop better course management skills, game-strategy and focus on the long term development instead of thinking short term and how far I can hit today and how beautiful my swing does (not) look. (Note to self for Jan. 2020: Relax and enjoy the journey with a vision; do not rush just to win)
