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.

Poor Justin Rose.

Well I dunno If winning $10 million for playing like s*** warrants pity...and getting that remarkably lucky bounce on 18?

But I get it. I really like Rose and aside from Ryder Cup it’s really the only time I was kinda rooting against him. I think he’ll be fine....lol.

Thats true. I doubt Rose cares with that heavy wallet..lol. But even at the awards ceremony it seemed like Rose was an afterthought.

The $10M is for playing great all year.

 

Yes. But no player of Roses’ caliber likes to go out like that. He’s not hurting for money. He can look at the bright side...he won the most memorable FedEx Cup.

I think $10M is a lot of money not some consolation prize. It's not like he was guaranteed coming into East Lake. I think he was happy as can be, even proud, especially because of how he hung in there, driving on fumes bringing home the booty after his game deserted him.

I think what he did not just throughout the season but also at EL stand out alone on it's own considering Tiger's year and week.

I totally agree.  At one point after clinching the cup, Rose was smiling so broadly I thought he might hurt his face.

I don't.  Rose won the Fedex Cup and Tiger won the individual tournament.  Tiger went out of his way to verbally give Justin the spotlight during his short speech.  Super classy.  Justin returned the favor also.

One problem is they finally made the points scenarios pretty clear to understand finally.  I liked how they did it.  Just in time for them to change the format in a similar but possibly even more idiotic way.

Love the golf club trophy.

The girlfriend looks like a personal trainer.  Wonder how they met.  Smart of them to keep it low key.

I finally got almost what I wanted, Rory and Tiger in a playoff at a huge event.  The tournament itselfs is a big playoff, so that 'kinda' counts.  But I wanted them both on their A game and really neither was for the last round - though Tiger started off looking like it was going to happen.  Rory didn't even come close.  I'd wanted to see them both come in at like 10 under with Tiger winning in the end.

lastly, what would have happened if Tiger lost another couple storkes at the end and Billy won the tourney instead.  It wasn't clear if Justin's last hole would have mattered or not.....

Tiger noted specific players supporting him (above and beyond?) showing up at the green - Billy, little Justin, and Ricky?  He specifically reached out to two of them (Billy and JT) - of course amongst the ton of the crowd of well wishers...certainly his agent and girlfriend and the support team too...

I thought Rory getting into the final group would be to his advantage but it didn't turn out that way. Both he and Rose had difficulty finding the fairway all day on a course with the most penal rough I have seen this side of a US Open. Tiger hit it straight and was methodical. Welcome back!

I must admit I was rooting for Tiger to win it all, but for Rose to absolutely pound his drive on 18, after struggling most of the day, was cool to watch!  He's been so solid all year, he definitely deserved the cup and prize!

Yeah I wasn't shocked by Rorys play because he has habit of disappearing on final rounds.Justin on the other hand I was shocked at his bad play.Always saw him as a steady player but clearly 10 million dollar pressure got to him even though he's already rich.

Ratings up 206% from last year, 5.21 share vs 1.7.

Quote

NBC Sports Group’s final round coverage of the TOUR Championship on Sunday (3:00-6:15 p.m. ET) earned a 5.21 Overnight rating, as Tiger Woods claimed his 80th career victory, and his first in five years. The telecast is up 206% vs. 2017 (1.70).  It also becomes the highest-rated telecast in the history of the FedExCup Playoffs (2007-’18) and the highest-rated PGA TOUR telecast in 2018 (excluding majors). Coverage peaked from 5:30-6p (7.19) as Woods finished his round and as Justin Rose was being crowned the FedExCup champion, only trailing the peaks for The Masters (11.03) and PGA Championship (8.28) in 2018. The extended coverage window (1:30-6:15 p.m. ET) posted at 4.35 Overnight rating, which is the highest-rated TOUR Championship telecast on record (2000-’18).

Frankly, how many other golfers can check off this list?

  • Any Medal at the olympics - but we could make it Gold and stop here - unless any of our other top players won in some other event in their youth......
  • #1 rank in the world (for ANY period of time - Henrik has got to #2 I think) (AND Shortest possible tenure at #1 possible)
  • Major winner (we could add Top 5 (3) in all 4 majors if one likes)
  • FedexCup winner

Those first two stack the deck, I know......  Justin isn't hurting.  He's all alone here for some time I'm sure.  though a handful of guys compose a group that could join him after the next olympics....Tiger, Vijay, Jordan, Rory, Justin

    • From an early July report/poll... see below:  Shorty, in the U.S. the current government is already unpopular with the Republicans so it's kind of an "I don't care" situation.  For the most part, the vaccinated are happy with their government.   "The poll found that while 86% of Democrats have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot, only 45% of Republicans have. In addition, the survey found that while only 6% of Democrats said they would probably decline the vaccine, 47% of Republicans said they would probably not be inoculated. "  
    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
    • I understand the need to protect what people perceive to be their freedoms, but I don't think that there is a problem in enforcing things like the wearing of seatbelts or driving whilst drunk etc. I think it SHOULD be mandated, but am realistic enough to know that any government who tried to to this would become very unpopular very quickly. At the very least I think there should be a sort of "vaccination passport" where it became pretty obvious that being unvaccinated stopped you from doing things you like to do - like going to restaurants, sporting events or even your job, which would be an incentive for them to get vaccinated. I kind of think that the greatest freedom you can have is being pretty sure that if you do get the virus it won't kill you. And there's a simple way to achieve that freedom.
    • I hadn't heard that, but given the stupidity of people out there refusing to take it (even for FREE, no less), I'm not surprised. It'll likely be upheld too because, while the case law is old, the case mostly on point has upheld such measures.
