23 year old Cameron Champ will be playing on the PGA Tour next year. He's currently averaging 343.4 yards on the Web.com Tour. Next behind him is Brandon Matthews with 333.7. Champ's average is based on 113 drives and he's hit 67% of the fairways. Rory is averaging 320 this year. They are of course playing on different tours and courses, but it will be interesting to see how he does on the PGA Tour. He's swinging over 130 mph with ball speeds over 190.

 

Nice...but this thread is about Tiger...🤭

Tiger and I would like to thank you all for your support. It's been a long and arduous road, and a year ago we weren't sure where we would be at the end of this season. But you all believed in us, and

WOOOO! After five years.

I like Jrose a lot...but man it would be so cool for Tiger to take the win AND the cup. 

Yes, I see that but  I root for British players (Rose especially)  first and foremost, so you'll understand that I'm gunning for Rose to cap off his great season with the fedex cup win. 

Even still, as much as I'd really like to see Woods complete his comeback, I'd feel a bit uncertain about him , Rory or Rahm taking the Fedex, as I don't feel any of them have done in the regular season to justify winning. Yes, I know that's sort of the point the playoff format that any of them can win, but as mentioned in the other threads, I think the weightings and re-seeding are a bit  skewed.  

Either way, the tour must be thrilled with the finale, and it's going to be a real cracker today.

The Web.com Tour almost always has the longer drivers. They shoot lower scores, often, too to win tournaments.

Guys often find they either have to dial it back on the PGA Tour or they get to play on it for one year before heading back to the Web.com tour.

Web.com tour courses aren't set up quite as difficult as PGA Tour stops. They're the lesser known, more common courses.

So my wife is telling me not to watch today. She says I've been jinxing him, that I should just go do something else and if he wins then the jinx has been broken.

IDK what to do. I'm nervous and jittery already.

At my father in laws house today...he is a huge broncos fan. He will be watching the game upstairs. I, however, will be in the basement watching Tiger! I’ll crawl out every once and awhile to eat some of his food😁

Jinxes only work if the person doing the act believes in the jinx.

I don't know what to believe anymore....

The problem is I will be disappointed with anything less from him results-wise today....

It pisses me off that I'm missing the chance to watch what could the last hurdle in Tiger's comeback.  I'm here in SW Colorado, yesterday on the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad Photographer's Special, today driving the Million Dollar Highway to Silverton, Ouray and ultimately to Gunnison.  Won't drive home until tomorrow, and since all of yesterday was, and much of today will be, out of cell service, I'm sort of in a communications blackout. 

I'll be rooting for him anyway.  Maybe tonight's hotel will actually have Golf Channel so I can at least see highlights.

I am officially jealous. I just Googled that, the scenery looks out of this world and the locos look remarkable.

    • I think that is a common issue with GPS.  I'm not sure about GGP but I believe GPS in general is only accurate within a few feet either direction.  Combine that with the fact that it only knows where your last putt originated form it can only approximate where the pin is.  I think they use something like 2 feet from last putt but I may be wrong there.  I've never worried about the putting distances, just the number of putts.   I've also seen issues with "Tap-in".  Basically I tap in, pickup and move away so quickly that the GPS does not always "Lock-In" near the ball, it registers closer to where I stand to watch the next person putt after I tap-in.  All I need to do to fix that is stand by the hole a little longer to let it "Lock-In" on my location but that would just slow the pace.
    • Day 243: Too humid to work on full swing outside today without sweating buckets. So I did a 2 hour short game practice instead. Started with chipping on all kinds of lies and focused on soft arms and pivot. Also, I slowed down my backswing which is an issue for me. Moved on to putting. Used my tempo app to get my rhythm down at 72 2/4 time. Then  worked on distance control up and down hill.   Next played a little one ball from various lies trying to get up and down. Followed with sand work when the green cleared. Finished with flop shots and downhill lie pitches.
    • I voted to ban just to stir the pot. I won't defend either one although the "asshat" crowd make a valid point. 🙂
    • I have read that putter is a viable option even from 60 yards out at times. Well at least for some people. Not me, though. I struggle to hit my putter 60 feet.
    • It wasn’t good, you’re right.
