With the Tour Championship less than 10 days away...here is a good way to start the tournament conversation....the breakdown of what each player needs to have happen if they are to win the Fedex Cup.

Season finale almost underway. Friday tee times will reflect scores rather than being jumbled from Thursday, like they normall just do for Saturday and Sunday. So we'll see new pairings tomorrow.

Funny situation with Schauffele that I haven't seen before.

He hits a ball into the OB fence and it bounces back, but ends up close enough to the fence that he doesn't get enough space for a swing. He sets up left-handed and does some practice swings, then asks the rules official if he can take a drop since when he's trying to hit it left-handed, there's a sprinkler head interrupting him (I didn't see if it was stance or club). He called in a second opinion and was allowed to take relief. After dropping, he's now in a position where he can hit the ball right-handed and proceeds to do so and ends up making a bogey.

Not an action you are able to to very often since you need the obstruction close enough to interrupt, but certainly useful to know for the pros.

Tiger starts off with a bogey. Tradition is tradition. Gets it back with a birdie on five, one of his longest putts today.

The greens are quick and the rough looks a bit tough and grabby. GIR might be king this week.

Tiger's driver and irons have been on point. He's putting like Stevie Wonder

A flashback to 2002, where Tiger and Phil tee'd off in the last group at the Tour Championship:

Pretty decent stuff - glad to see Tiger and Rory in the mix.  And Rickie.

Bryson making a mess of it.

Lots of golf remaining.

 

And this - just because

Tiger got his bogey out on the first hole and delivered a great 65 round after dropping a 27 feet putt for eagle on 18. Loved watching that one go in!

310 driving distance. 10/14 fairways. 14/18 greens. 1.7 putts per GIR. 2/2 sand saves and 100% scrambling. Gained strokes on all stats.

Currently tied with Fowler. If the result stands, they will head out in the last group tomorrow. He went out on fire last tournament, then cooled down on Friday. Let's see if he can keep it going this week.

Now that he's in the Peach State, wearing a peach colored shirt, things are going peachy. 😛

Didn't watch the telecast, but based on the few swings I've seen on social media, looks smoother.

    • Like many golfers I have a bag of 14. When I play a normal round of 18 all of them come with me. I will say that I'm constantly tweaking the line up of clubs. I actually have 18 clubs from which to select said 14. Sometimes a 3 wood, sometimes a mini-driver, sometimes this driver, sometimes that one, sometimes the 4-iron, sometimes the driving iron, sometimes the hybrid, sometimes one of 2 different gap wedges. PW through 9 are always the same, and have been for 10 years. My sand wedge and LW are always the same and so is my putter.  Having said all of that. I like getting out for a quick 9 after work and in doing so I'll carry 7-8 clubs. I take the evens one day the odds the next. Plus sometimes the LW sometimes the SW sometimes no driver, sometimes no 3 wood. What ever. I helps my brain think it's way around the golf course. It also builds my confidence in clubs that perhaps I wouldn't use all the time. I learn to hit different shots. Lastly it's just plain lighter to carry. 
    • Summary: Number of clubs and mode of transportation have little effect on score for average golfer.  My golals for playing golf: to keep my bones from getting any weaker; to continue to play bogie into my old age; to enjoy the best life long sport. This year I decided to play from tees appropriate to my driver distance and to experiment with walking and carrying a short set of clubs, so I could avoid hurting my back moving the push cart in and out of the car.  Set consisted of driver (vrarious clubs 9.5* G20 to 16* Mini) , putter and 4hyb,6i,8i, pw,sw. With this setup I walked 9,18 or 27 holes on varrous courses around Ottawa Ontario. I scored about same  walking with short set  as with riding with a full set. About me: 80 years old, golfed off and on for 65 years, never better than 10 handicap: never had a fitting as I am constantly working on developing a better swing;  I consider myself an bogie golfer as I play about that level with 14 or 7 clubs, walking or riding on 9 or 18 hole courses. 
    • Never been, but I've met a number of Indian co-workers of my brother when they visited here.  Mainly, I remember those guys in parkas in September. So I gather that it's pretty darn hot. Maybe coming from Florida it won't be as much of an issue for you. I also remember them being astonished by our grocery stores and fascinated by strip clubs. For what that's worth. 
    • The fact that he went through all that golf says a lot about how his back is working. Even if he had traines for it and been prepared, it was a lot of golf in a short period of time, and he won the TC, which must have been a bit exhausting in itself. I still think having the cup the week after the Tour Championship is a poor decision, even if Tiger didn't play poorly.
    • Congrats!   All of the hard work is paying dividends!   Keep at it.    I'm excited to see your continued progress.
