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.

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. 

Sorry, but as a European I still root big time for Tiger. Go Tiger, go 👊

Wonderful approach to #1 for Tiger.  C'mon Tiger!

I hate that I'm sort of rooting against Justin Rose today.  I like him, but I want him to do just poor enough for Tiger to win the Fed-Ex Cup.  

Also, I missed following closely for a few years;  is Bryson the second (after Camilo) to not win the Fed-Ex Cup despite winning two playoff tournaments?

Bryson has starter playing golf again and is currently past Tiger on the FedEx Cup sitting at T14 in the tournament.

So much for someone I had stuck a fork in.

Bryson needs to fall to T15 or worse and Justin to T5 or worse and Tiger has to remain solo first for Tiger to win the cup

... and Tiger will not be getting his latest "no fives" badge today.  Fortunately for him it wasn't a bogey, but it sure must have felt like one.

Bryson hit a timely water ball there on 15! Drops to 15 and projected third in FEC.

Rory is not playing very well yet. Rose is struggling, but has avoided the big numbers so far.

This is really intense.

The problem with Rory not playing well is that Tiger needs him (or a few someones, but Rory is in a good position) to beat Rose to help him out.

 What you’re seeing today is that “Tiger intimidation factor“ that never actually was. Tiger just often leads and plays such steady boring golf that other people have to try to play beyond their abilities to catch up to him and when they fail to, it looks like he’s intimidating.

Unless he starts turning it around, we'll have to rely more on Horschel, Rahm or DJ.

And Rose just made a birdie. Currently looks like Tiger will take the tournament and Rose the FEC. Maybe Bryson if he makes a few more or someone at -4 drops down.

It's so interesting to watch from my view because I took up golf in '06 (give or take a few instances prior), so the years of my golf life when Tiger was so dominant were so early, I was still in the view that these players should be able to pull off those shots, and just weren't because of Tiger's aura (or whatever).  It makes so much more sense now that I have a better view of what reasonable expectations at each level, including top professionals, are.

Meh, I’m not interested in Tiger winning the cup. I want him to win the event.

I agree. The cup is whatever, but the win is frigging HUGE

    • IMO, if you hit 11 GIR's you should shoot 73. I agree that you should work on putting and chipping - at least half of total practice time.   Might want to try an app like MyRoundPro that shows strokes gained (and lost) in different parts of the game. More objective than traditional stats.  
    • 48-39-87 Weird day. My short game was killing me and then I got it in high gear. Parred the last 6 holes. 
    • Some range time after playing today. Just searching a bit for some consistency. I found it more in making shorter (of course) backswings.  Also, a bit more left hip goes back and up, and feels like I get some belt buckle pointing to sky more.  Just trying to clean up low point better. I rather hit some slight thins by extending up more than by flipping to avoid fatting shots.  Some driver swings. Today I was hitting a ton of push cuts (no playable). When I tried to play for them I hit the ball straight (Golf sucks).  Baseline Driver... (not a push cut, of course) Kind of same feels for iron swing. Shorter backswing, belt buck up to sky as I turn.    On a side note, its getting easier to just turn the swing length down by making a what feels like an 75% turn on the backswing. Of course, I get to 90 degrees here making what feels like is like partial backswing shoulder turn.   
    • I would say it’s about 50/50 in terms of too long or too short. Usually I’m pretty on line - it’s mainly distance control. Downhill putts are especially hard for me to judge.    I am staring at my putter more wondering if maybe it is time for a change. I have had the same box set Maxfli putter for almost 20 years. The grip is all worn down and you can see where I strike it on the face. I’ve never tried another putter so maybe I should try something that gives me better feedback.    
    • Shot 83 today, 16 GIR/nGIR, 31 putts, and 3 penalty strokes. Considering the high GIR/nGIR amount (for me), I should have had a better score, but I had three very costly swings that I estimate cost me 4-5 strokes. 1) Approach shot OB on #2, ended up making triple bogey. 2) Tee shot on #6 into penalty area, but managed bogey with a good approach after penalty drop. 3) Easy sand shot on #14 that I picked perfectly clean instead of hitting sand, and launched about 60 yards over the green into the native junk/weeds. Ended up making double bogey after it took two more shots from knee high grass to get onto the green. Drove the ball well today, and short game COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills are continuing to pay off. Missed some makeable birdie putts, but no 3-putts, so overall putting was fine.
