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.

Sportsbooks took a bath on the Masters

i?img=%2Fphoto%2F2019%2F0414%2Fr529189_1

Tiger Woods' return to glory at Augusta wasn't met with the same fanfare by sportsbooks, which took massive losses after Woods won his first major...

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.

    • I spent quite some time auditioning hybrids until I settled on a 5 and 3 wood.  Once I'd done that it became a matter of choosing a hybrid that suited, or fit, the space between my irons and fairways.  It isn't, to my thinking, what hybrid is best...it's which hybrid is most like the clubs on either side.  I want the weight, and flex, to be similar to my 4 iron and 5 wood.  In other words:  I'd rather fit one club to the set than craft a set around one club.
    • Day 133.  Had a little bit of time, wish I had more.  Did the 6' putting drill I've been doing;  this time, I hit 7/12 on the first go-around!  And then 3 of 5 the second one.  It was fantastic.   I then set up 8 roughly equidistant stations from 9' out.  First go-around, sank none.  Second go-around, sank 4.  Hey, 4/8 from that distance is great, and for that matter, 4/16 isn't bad from that distance for me.  Took me a bit more time to sink the rest.   You might wonder why I'm doing so much putting lately.  It was an emergency and I only have n=1 rounds where it has looked good since declaring the emergency.  Also, I had to pack up my home golf room so I can't practice full swing in limited time as I used to (yes, there are drills I could do that don't involve hitting a ball).  Not worry, plenty of full swing work before too long.  
    • During the club fiasco of 2019, after FedEx lost my golf clubs and I was waiting for Cobra to build me a new set of F9 One Lengths (5i - SW), I made a mistake. I bought into hype. I went down and tried out a new set of hybrids. Callaway Epic Flash. The reviews were that they were long and forgiving. Well, true and sort of true. I had a little problem with "over fading them", but with a draw setting to make them a little more upright, that seemed to fix that and I was hitting them long and straight in the shop. Unfortunately this did not last. I do not like them. I have zero confidence with the 5H. The "over-fade" with the 4H and 3H is back. I did not have this issue with my Bio Cell hybrids. The Bio Cells were not as long, but I could hit them straight in a neutral face setting. They were also heavier in the club head. D6 vs D0. I think the weight was further back in them too for more forgiveness. What makes this a mistake is that I used them as part of the funding for the Epic Flash Hybrids. I have a 60 day playability guarantee on the Callaways. Basically if I don't like them I can return them. I'm going to return them, but I'll need a set of hybrids. I'll bring my 6i with me. So do you guys have any suggestions for any that are easy to get in the air and tend to keep a relatively narrow dispersal pattern?
    • Day 27 Worked with my weighted club, but this time, I placed a football between my arms and held it in place as I focused on my takeaway.  Really trying to keep my width, and prevent my arms from folding as I have had a tendency to allow in the past.
    • I got up for the 3am start on Friday. Had the dvr record todays start. Probably should have done this in reverse order. Still very enjoyable. Love the format and the US vs Europe. I still have some hope for Decembers Pres. Cup. Maybe that team can be somewhat competitive.   Solheim and Ryder Cup still a must watch for me.
