He starts getting the driver to work, then can't hole anything. Do they list proximity to the hole for single tournaments on pgatour.com? Would be interesting to see how close he's hitting it.

I don't see a proximity stat for the tournament, but they do show that his strokes gained on approach this week is 3.8, even with a -0.4 the first day, which ranks 9th in the field.  On the other hand, his strokes gained putting this week is -3.95, 76th in the field.

This putting garbage is killing me

 

He will figure out the putting on a different golf course. Good to see this new shaft in the driver is helping his accuracy a heck of a lot.

He did it as a joke. Not accidentally.

Wow Bo Hossler (sp?) hitting 5 off the first tee....

Oh well, at least his mom's hot.

Hossler did pretty well to make 7 on that hole.

Apparently, Jordan Spieth had to take a lost ball in the rough, right near a fairway. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before in a PGA Tournament.

They really should change that rule. 😉

Woods has only 4 bogies this week.  Wow.

But in his last three rounds, out of nine par fives, he's only made one birdie.  I'm guessing that he didn't practice much last week, and what little he did was spent on his driver.  Can't blame him, with five events in six weeks this stretch.

John…

Jordan Spieth to his caddie: "Hey, I know it's right around here...you saw it land, right?  I can't believe this.  This rough is really too long.  So unfair.  I mean, on the PGA Tour, they have spotters and everything...I shouldn't be penalized when they wouldn't ever lose a ball like that on the Tour.  I'm just gonna drop one here...that's fine, right?"

Yeah, the original tweet I read said accidentally, so just blindly accepted it (see what I did there? 😜), looked at it again where he subtly shakes his head, I guess Single Length Irons Guy didn't get it, I see he did it as a joke. Faldo's Jerry Lewis moment, lol.

I put it in the Twitter timeline!

    • 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)
