Wonder if he committed before this round or he's thinking it's not going too well, let's get a spot in.

He had until the completion of play today (not the completion of the second round) to commit, I think I read. Maybe he gave Steiny a signal after a few holes to commit, or maybe they timed it to be when he was on the course so they wouldn't ask about it beforehand.

Are you guys ready for Jack to talk about the Bear trap all next weekend?

Jeez, the Genesis Open isn't even a corpse yet, let alone buried. ;-)

When I think "Honda Classic" the first thing that comes to mind is the Cavity-Back 350.  Or the 305; but that was a little bit before my time.

This thread became more interesting than the Genesis one the instant Tiger said he'd play it after missing the cut. :-P

Tiger will have to do something about his long game if he hopes to play four rounds next week. He lost shots to the field both rounds, which can have affected his play on and around the greens. I've seen him putt worse when he's constantly needing 3-4 shots to find the green in the first place.

 

Off the tee: -2.111, 128 (rank in field).
Approach to the green: -0.987, 101

Putting: 0.090, 67 (+2 one day and -2 the next)

Driving accuracy: 46.43%, T87

My guess is Tiger fares better back home in Florida (yes, I know he grew up in SoCal) than he did in Cali. The driver has to get worked out either way, but I would think the familiarity and comfort he has playing in Florida might get a little more of a groove going. Seeing him out there is a good thing regardless of where it is, but I didn't think much good would come from playing Riviera...even in his prime it never seemed like a course that he was super comfortable on.

@iacas - can you add a poll to this thread?

Tiger makes/misses the cut

I remember when the excitement was if Tiger would win (again), now it is will he play the weekend. Here is to hoping he plays 4 days, but I wouldn't make a bet on it.

I don't watch the PGA much, but it seems like "top" players miss the cut every week. I'm hoping Tiger just played poorly at Riviera more than his game being in trouble. I guess it's hard to say with just two tournaments under his belt.

I'm not sure these Florida courses are that friendly to wild drives.

No disagreement there. He’s got some serious issues to work out with the driver, I just think being on familiar turf can sometimes help at the margin.

I guessed that he makes the cut, which puts me in the vast majority of voters. What I don't know is what the field looks like.

yeah boiiiiiiiiii another even with Tiger in it!!! 

I thought he looked better with the driver this event. Numbers bear that out, I believe. He got away with a lot of bullshit at Torrey because he putted and chipped like the hole was eleven feet wide. 

I think a lot of his problems boil down to competitive rust and fatigue. He'll compete. 

For non-related Tiger stuff-- 

I love this tournament. I love the whole CaliFlorida swing. Really does a nice job setting up for the Masters. I'm always happiest at the beginning of the season. It all feels so fresh and new! 

Hope Rory finally puts it together in the States this year, and gets a win. Feeling good about him now that he's healthy.

he isn't happy he didn't make the cut from his last tournament, he is going to tear up the course at the honda classic.

If tearing means driving it into the rough and ripping the rough apart, you might be correct.

Off course Tiger will make the cut. Just needs to sort out his long game.
