I think a poll that belongs on this thread is:  do you think Big Cat ends 2019 at #1 in the OWGR?  

If he keeps playing the way he has since the US Open, yes.

If you look at the raw OWGR points earned since the US Open, Tiger is a very close third behind Bryson and Francesco.  They have both won twice since then, and both have about 175 points to Tiger's 170.  Everybody else in the top 12 is well below that -- Spieth and Day have around 40 points.

From the comfort and driving he demonstrated last week, it seems to me that Tiger is in better shape now than he was at the beginning of 2013, when he won five times, so I think he'll win at least four events.  Whether one is a major or not depends only on which weeks he's playing well, because he is now playing well enough to beat any competition when he's on his game.

I voted 4-5, with 1 major. He's the best player in the world RIGHT NOW.

I see this is an older topic now, but that's my prediction on September 28.

I think we will see a much better tiger next year. Think about how good he played the end of this year and his strength and conditioning were no where near where he likes to be.  He was legit sporting a belly and no chest at the Ryder Cup. Now that he knows he can trust his back for the swing let him have time, get a good couple months in the gym. I'll admit I'm a tiger fan boy and I hope he stays healthy enough to break Snead  and Jacks records. I think he'll accept he's not the longest hitter on tour anymore and eat people's lunches with his iron game.  I think the true condition of his back was proven when he spent all weekend hitting out of that nasty ass rough in Paris and barely even winced. I'm excited for a few more years of tiger.

I think he has a good shot at every major this coming year and will likely win one. He nearly won two this year not far removed from his competitive comeback after a several year absence and while still clearly continuing to improve. If he stays healthy, he'll be competitive in likely most every major he enters.

I am most definitely NOT a Tiger hater.  I don't think he'll win at all this year.  Too many young and great players that I'm very excited about.

You do know he won last year and finished really high in relevant stats, right?

In his first year back from major surgery.

I do know that.  He was amazing, as was his swing speed.  I still don't think he'll win this year.  Let's see what happens.  I think he'll have 2 good rounds but not 4.  I think Sunday will be a problem for him, but not the younger guys.  Just a hunch.

I'm going with 2 wins, one of them being a major.

I agree he has a fair chance to win couple of tournaments. 

I don't know about winning a major. Too many young strong players now....

.

Before his personal life exploded, I thought he'd easily break Jack Nicklaus' record. But, now.........~shrug...

After watching the ESPN special and getting an even better look at what he went through just shows how impressive his comeback is. It really got me thinking Tigers talent was more than what his body could handle if that makes sense to anyone here. The full swings from incredibly awkward stances ripping through heavy cabbage had to cause wear even he wasn't aware of during the younger days.

Tiger started more than 15 tournaments since 2013. He made the cut in 16 out of the 18 tournaments, and made the top 25 in 12 of them! He was in contention in many of the tournaments.

Woods needs to work on his Day's 1 & 2 scoring. He was ranked 62nd and 46th in scoring average for rounds 1 and 2.

He is actually ranked nearly the same for days 2 and 4. I don't think he is wearing out on Sundays. He was still ranked 5th in strokes gained average per round last year.

The big thing is that Tiger won late in the season. Even after playing in his first full season he won at the end. This says that he wasn't bothered by his first season back. Now that he has an offseason to rest up, continue to work on the swing changes he made, and get prepared for the new season. I think he'll be positioned to win multiple times next year.

20 years and they haven't been able to fix him when he plays.

Tiger will break Sneads all-time wins record this year and I am confident he'll get 1 major and be in the hunt in atleast 1 possibly 2 others. It wouldn't surprise me if he won 2. He just seems more mature, more at ease, more comfortable with himself. We know injuries played a part in his on course struggles but their was more to it. I believe his personal life effected his play every bit as much as the physical aspects. I believe Tiger's Dad kept him grounded and driven and when Mr.Earl passed away it was Tiger vs Tiger, and the pressure from his own expectations and the super high standards that he had set upon himself, just became too great and it broke him down. I remember a few years ago when Tiger attempted to come back after an injury and he didn't play well. He withdrew himself from the tournament and the camera's showed him going straight to his car and leaving. I felt so bad for him. You could see the pain, and sadness on his face...and I actually wound up cussing 2 Facebook Friends and a Relative out on Facebook, because of the negative comments they made on my post that day, regarding Tiger's withdrawal. Thankfully, He's Back! And you can just see he's comfortable and refreshed and he's actually enjoying the game again! I believe we're seeing the rebirth of Tiger and over the next few years he's going to treat us fans and spectators to what I hope will be the Greatest story of Redemption in the history of sports. 2019 is going to be the year of the Tiger! 🐅

1 PGA tour win, a couple top 10´s and 0 majors. Just like 2018.

I think he'll win a PGA tour event, maybe 2.   But I think he'll be 0 for 4 at the majors.   I hope I'm wrong.  It would be colossal if he won The Masters.

    • Well, apparently they weren’t printing my tickets...  
    • I tend to like it. In most cases, companies changed simply to match what was already happening.  People would, and always have, taken “sick” time for your aforementioned fun things, and still come to work while sick. Trying to verify and manage sick time, especially the one or two days when someone is (or claims to be) sick enough to want to stay home, but not so sick as to warrant the visit to a Dr, is a nightmare.   Now the employee can use their PTO however they want, and the company benefits from an easier to manage system.   Just for fun....the day most often called out for being “sick” is the Monday following the Super Bowl.  Imagine that.      Yup
    • I disagree, and both companies I have been at so far have had the 1 large PTO bucket, and I can't say I've really ever seen someone in the office who was so visibly sick that they shouldn't have been there.  Plus, for people who rarely get sick, the separate sick and vacation buckets would just mean they would either end up accumulating weeks upon months of sick time, or lie about being sick so they could actually use those days, especially if their employer has a "use it or lose it" policy where you can't roll unused days over to the following year. You just said you hated that policy of 1 PTO bucket, but then you said given the choice between those two policies you would choose the 1 PTO bucket. That doesn't make sense. Clearly the 1 PTO bucket must not be that bad of an idea if you would choose it over having separate vacation/sick buckets, right? I have the 1 PTO bucket and I think it is perfectly fine. When I plan out my vacations and other PTO days throughout the year, I make sure I leave a couple days unused in case I get sick, and then if December comes and I haven't used those days yet, I take random Fridays or Mondays off in December since we can't roll any unused days over.
    • so did I - was the classic gym rat with the weights before taking up golf.  Lots of power not too much precision in the beginning.   Over time I've changed workout routines to still get in strength work with weights  but I've incorporated  lots of body weight work, cardio, and flexibility work.   As a result (and I'm sure golf equipment advances help)  I'm tons more accurate.  had my best drive over the weekend that measured 320 in the heat and firm conditions.   I usually carry about 280.   In all I've been working out since I was 26, I'm 56 now. So I think weights should be a part of an overall fitness plan
    • I work for the government, and our sick leave policies are more liberal than most, I would imagine. We can use sick leave for any doctor/dentist appointment. We can also use it for any illness or anything like that. This includes a kid's appointment or illness. We don't have a bright line policy on medical documentation for using sick leave, except for extended leave for childbirth or something similar. I think it's in our supervisor's discretion to request some sort of documentation, but I've never personally had that happen. I can't imagine that happening for taking sick leave of less than 3 days, though. I hate this policy. I think it's shortsighted from management. People don't want to use their days off for being sick; they want to use it for fun things. I think it leads to sick people working more often, getting other people sick, and thus making the office less productive. If the choice is between 3 weeks vacation + 1 week sick time, or just 4 weeks PTO, I would obviously take the 4 weeks. But I would also be coming into work sick more often.
