US needs to get something going this morning. Not looking too sharp so far but we're only a few holes in.

Whats wrong with Tiger? Walks the speed of a turtle.

They say he's fine, but maybe it's a bit of age showing, cold weather, stiffness, not playing too well.

It’s really not difficult to see why guys don’t exactly flourish when playing with him. His grumpiness must be exhausting.

Yeah, he's never struck me as a particular team player. He's played in most of these team events, but he's given off the impression of being an individualist that doesn't get into something as the RC as for instance Poulter or Reed. He enjoys his privacy and always has, which might give us more of those vibes. We don't know how he is in private with the rest of the team of course, but from the point of view of a TV spectator, I agree he doesn't look too inspired out there. Then you got Reed spraying it all over the course. Not looking like the sharpest US pair so far.

Tiger might lighten up for the singles, where he can do his own thing and just play golf. 

Well, he just made a putt there to get to just 1 down and pointed a finger at the crowds. Maybe that'll give him and Reed a boost.

EDIT--That might be a bit unfair, since Europe just continues to perform more than the US chokes. By a slight margin.

He’s got nowhere to go with Reed dropping yet again.

Seriously? Grumpiness? Huh?

I love how people see what they want to see.

And forget the last Presidents Cup And Ryder Cup.

When you’re winning, your team looks like it has chemistry. When you’re losing, it doesn’t. It’s that simple.

Seriously. I’d have more fun playing with a fridge freezer.

You don’t know what you’re talking about.

And Patrick Reed has been in his pocket on all but one hole so far. THAT is not fun.

Tiger's singles record is incredible in team events and even moreso outside of them. If anything is holding his pairings record back in these events, I'm willing to bet it's 75% his partner's performance, and not his own. My God, Fatrick has been AWFUL today.

    • Today I started using mine to practice on the carpet at home.
      Primarily for chipping and checking impact and flight direction. That helps me adjust my grip/clubhead angle. Their weight and material will obviously result in a different distance when hit in comparison to a regular golf ball. Therefore I would only use it for occasional practice at home.
    • So a local cadie who cadies the course whole year round, knows less about the course then a pro caddie who visits the course once a year (for a week). Or even less because the pro’s don’t play the course every year.                                     And about not speaking English, what do we know for sure? Even caddies in Marroko at mediocre courses speak enough English, at least enough to caddie. And Matt doesn’t speak a word Mexican/Spanish too? People find ways to communicate.                                             One way or an other, Kuchar was at the top of his form. The way the caddie acted could be more important then is given credit for.
    • 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.
