Agree, i think Molinari is going to go from strength to strength.

I was also pleased how well Poulter did, plus in the interview post round with the BBC he seemed pretty humble at the prospects of being in contention simply stating that while he and Tiger are the same age Tiger is way better so he was just happy to be there and playing well.

Always liked Poults but he's gone up a bit more in my estimation after this weekend.

Plus some great golf from Finau, Koepka and that Xander Souffle fella :-P

Likewise. I know some on here (justifiably) dislike him, but I do think that his fall a couple of years back humbled him somewhat.

The whole day was surreal...with the morning start and the way the round played itself out. Tiger winning is huge for golf. The only thing I'm going to get sick of hearing is how now he's got a great chance to catch Jack's 18 majors. I think we need to pump the breaks on that a little bit. Maybe after the U.S. Open (if he can get either that or the PGA done). He may not even win another one. And I'm a fan.

He has been in contention in the last 3...I see no reason to doubt he will win more.  I think getting to Jack's record is certainly feasible.

No Laying Up podcast a good overview of the tunament.

They made a good point on the masters.com site I did back in this thread. You can go to the site, to the tracking page and almost see every single shot in decent quality video, selecting by hole or player. That's awesome.

OH it's definitely possible. I'm just saying let's not make it be the number one news story going into Bethpage. Sure he has a chance...but four more? Gonna be tough with the competition he has now. I would think that this might actually inspire some of the young guys to make sure it doesn't become all about Tiger this year.

It's only four weeks to the next major. It's gotta favor whomever was playing well at The Masters. Not saying Woods is going to win, he's probably going to be dog tired making the media rounds, celebrating, etc... But it's at Bethpage and it's going to be fun to see what happens.

I have watched him throughout his career and one thing I have learned from him is that his determination and dedication to being the best is unheard of.   I think that if he wants it bad enough; he will get it.   The only thing that can stop him from achieving that goal is himself.

Or the other 75-100+ golfers on this planet that are capable of beating him

Well, he beat the world's best twice in the last 6 months; was in contention in the last two majors of 2018 taking 2nd place in the PGA and 6th in the British...in his first year back.  Those 75-100 golfers are capable...but he has proven that he can not only "hang" with the young guns...but beat them solidly.

I agree with all of that, but it's incorrect to state that the only thing holding him back is himself. 

If that were the case he would win every tournament he enters.

I didn't say that the only thing "holding him back is himself."  I don't think any thing is holding him back.  I said if he wants it bad enough; he will get it.  That is all.  And back in his prime he did in fact have the mindset that he would win every tournament he enters.  If some of that focus is rekindled...look out PGA tour.

Bethpage is a different course than Augusta. It's very long course which traditionally has penal rough. Looking at the scorecard, there are only two par-5s and there are 5 par-4s over 475 yards and three par-4s over 500 yards. There'a  524-yard par-4. So it's going to be a monster. If you're not a big hitter, you're going to have a hard time, especially if it's a soft track like it was the last couple times the US Open was there.

Tiger has also won at Bethpage, and was in the running when Glover won there, too.

Of course. Not saying Tiger can't win there, just saying it's a different breed than Augusta. The way he's hitting his irons he can win anywhere. I like his chances more at Pebble, but the PGA is definitely doable.

    • Day 70, August 3, 2021: Grip work, I mean my grip sucks. So I worked on it for ten minutes then hit some chips.
    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
    • The conditions, particularly of the putting greens, don't appear to be "bad" at all there. That stuff matters.

    • Day 584 - August 3, 2021 Hit fifteen or twenty balls at Chautauqua between lessons. Wrists while I turn, 1/2 swing (or 3/4). Whatever it is, it's "less." Hit some good ones.
