Props to Tiger,  I'm one who said 3 years ago it would never happen again.  Payin out $2,000 because of it, fk!, but really did enjoy his celebration with the kids and his mom.  One of the most amazing sports stories in our lifetime. Erik, ur fanboyness has been paid.

That was amazing. Putting Tiger aside, it was an awesome tournament to watch. There were like 10 guys with a chance on the back 9. But Tiger winning tops it all.

That was such a good finale that even my wife got interested the last few holes! She's never paid attention to a tournament in the last 20 years!

 

Now, just think if Tiger can get in touch with his putting again... 😯

Man, that was exciting. I haven’t been around the forum much in a few years, since my little one was born. Still golfing a lot though. 

Next year, he’ll be old enough to take to a couple of the family courses near here. I’ll make him wear a helmet, but he’s three and he already raves to me about golf and hockey (mostly gibberish), and watching him get excited about Tiger winning (him being excited was a combo of my excitement coupled with his fascination with Tigers bright red shirt) was one of the best moments of fatherhood there is.

I know I went a bit off topic, but it’s been a good day.

LOL, me neither but after today I had to come back and see all the Tiger talk.  That was amazing this morning.  I especially liked watching him celebrate the way he did.

Incredible win for Tiger. Took down some of the hottest players in golf over the last couple years. I think he will gain tremendous confidence from beating those guys today, just like he must have taken big confidence from beating Rose & McIlroy at the Tour Championship.

I don't know why it's so hard for people to get behind Koepka but the brute mental and physical strength of this man is undeniable. Maybe because he looks a bit like Thanos. Lol. But if I was in a battle for my life, I would want him by my side. 

My guess: There's nothing about him (yet) to draw fans or create non-fans.  He's incredibly good, but really boring, and we don't really know anything about him.  His closest comparison on the course is probably DJ because he's also pretty robotic and emotionless while golfing.  But he's all kinds of interesting off the course with his social-media/wife/suspension/drugs??/injuries etc etc.  He's level headed but colorful.  Koepka is ... there.

Just watched the back nine after getting back from work. Tiger played great down the stretch. I can’t believe Molinari put it in the water twice.

The back nine at Augusta is just a great venue for the climax of a major. Always drama.

Tiger played each 9 on all four days under par. Talk about consistent!

What a tournament. Excitement from start to finish. And they beat the storm. Incredible. 

Too bad he won get the jacket among the fans. Would be more fitting than in a cabin. 

He did get the jacket on the green outside. They reversed their earlier decision to cancel that ceremony (which they only did to protect fans from possible horrible storms).

A whole lot of guys around here are gonna be having one hell of a plate of crow for dinner. It's just beautiful. They're all in hiding!

Woods led the field in greens in regulation (58/72, 81 percent). Seven of those missed greens came in Round 1.

Not a "fanboy" here. Just appreciate what he is, has done, and can (still) do.

But I appreciate the crow-eating. Good on you.

Hey guys n gals;

I’m new on the forum, so let me ask this question- F. Molinari tapped in with the flag in the hole, in successive holes. Aren’t those violations?

Not in 2019.

    • The only problem I found on bending clubs are the ones that have little plastic/metal inserts on the back side of the clubs.  Because of these inserts, some local proshops, and/or club builders won't touch them for fear of breaking/cracking/popping those inserts. The owner, in need of an adjustment, may be required to send their clubs back to manufacturer. 
    • Day 478 It arrived today. What arrived was my new driver: a Ping 410 Plus with Alta CB Red Soft Regular Shaft. As I am still getting used to the new toy, I started with all the adjustable parts set to the most neutral settings.  Soon I adjusted to help with a slice. All after that change were straight where I was aiming.  I seemed to have picked up 10 MPH in terms of ball speed.  I need to work now on the results not being so high. I intended to hit only 20-25 balls.  I ended up hitting 45 as this club made driving fun.  It was easy to hit towards  various target greens.  What I need to adjust after a few more practice section I the launch angle to lower the fact that wit my older drive I tend to hit high spin. I rarely, if ever, fall in love with a club so quickly, but even with days of getting used to it ahead, as I said in my review on the Ping web site, it was love at first whack.
    • Was wondering if anyone has played here. Playing the ledgends course. 
    • Totally agree with keeping them standard length to start with. Can always grip down when they are long, but can't go the opposite way. Bending Pings is difficult at best and don't assume you will be able to have it done easily. May have to send back to Ping if you want them bent after the fact but they can do it.
    • Day 28 What a GREAT day!  This is why everyone should have a golf coach! So, about 5 weeks ago I was playing great. Then suddenly I completely lost it. Then I got hurt (non-golf related, but screwed up my game). When I came back from my injury I was pretty close to hopeless.  I got with my golf coach and he and I worked through what all had changed in my swing. It turns out I had made a minor adjustment without realizing it. Then I made an adjustment to counter act that adjustment, then another and another and pretty soon my swing was nothing like what my swing used to be like.  My coach brought up the video of my swing when it was good. We compared it to where I found myself after … I'll call it my melt down. Anyway, my coach was able to quickly get me back where I was before. Suddenly I was striping the ball down the middle again. Yay!  Anyhow, back to today's practice. I hit trajectory drills with the driver. I'd hit a high fade, then hit an 8-iron shot. Next I'd hit a low draw, then hit a hybrid. After that I'd hit a high trajectory drive, then hit a 4-irion. Basically I'd work through the 9 shots with the driver: high, medium and low, Draw, straight and fade combinations. But after each driver shot, I'd hit a different club from my bag, picking the club pretty much at random. I didn't want to hit any club more than one time in a row.  In the end I hit the ball so well on the range I had to run out and play 9 holes. My game has returned, I went 3 over for 9. I hit the ball so much better than I'd been hitting it recently. It felt great.  That's the reason everyone should have a golf coach.
