"Oh he's got to get this one within 10 feet"

Well...FWIW...they said ‘got to’ not ‘should.’ If someone has a 25’ putt to win...you’d say he’s got to make this putt. Not ‘should.’

Consider re-teeing rather than the drop zone?

I did, but I figured I can handle an 80-yard shot and obviously I can’t.

Tiger Woods was on pace for a great round on Friday after shooting 3-under through his first seven holes. Then he stepped on the tee box at No. 17, the famed island green that has wreaked havoc on …

 

I don't think there are many players who don't have scars from 17.

Copied this from Tony Finau's teacher (I think), hitting right into and over the trees.

Was the option of dropping near the point where the ball entered the hazard on the first shot not available? Or is it a local rule that you have to drop it in the drop zone?

Um, not a local rule, it's the rule: 26-1a and b. You have to go back to the point he ball last crossed the margin of the hazard, so your only options are to either replay the shot or got to the designated drop zone.

Yellow penalty area.

Golf channel just showed a live demo from the 17th green that based on where Tiger's ball crossed the yellow hazard line and the straight line from the flagstick, he actually could have dropped on the walkway behind the green after his tee shot.

Yeah we just saw that.

There's no way he could have known that, though, really. Unless he was going to walk up to the green and get the exact point it crossed from someone. 

Eh, he could have, just knowing the shape of the green and the walkway.

I don't think that it's a likely thing, but he could have known. And he'll know in the future, as will some others now.

That's what I thought he could have done.  And that is why I brought it up.

I am surprised neither Tiger of LaCava didn't even consider that option.

That's not what you brought up. You mentioned dropping "near where it crossed.". They'd be dropping well away from where it crossed - on a line back.

That option was not an option, no. It's yellow. Not red.

Coupla things. First off, Justin Leonard and his little boy haircut. C'mon man.

B) Tiger and the par 5s this week. I just can't.

His putting is just awful.

"So I love the beat and the groove in this piece and it just, like, propels it forward". - said nobody ever of a classical woodwind/string piece.

It's nice and all, but I'm not sure how this is the theme for new audiences loving golf .... maybe older audiences.

Better than a lot of today's computer-made music, autotune, etc.  Some young people like it when musicians are skilled and can play instruments/sing themselves.

Hopefully Rory can keep this going as he travels down to Georgia.

    • @iacas, thanks for your detailed comments. i know sometimes tone can be difficult to discern online and as a new member of this community i'm still getting used to the style of communication here. i apologize if you feel i put words in your mouth (totally unintentional) and i don't harbor any ill will about what i considered snarky/sarcastic.  i think it's difficult to compare this picture of DJ because he's wearing layers and a collar. additionally, the fact that the picture of mike on the left is intentionally exaggerated limits its usefulness in my opinion.  i just searched for "dustin johnson down the line slow motion" in youtube and here are a couple of pictures from the first few videos that showed up. here's one of DJ with an iron in his hand and no layers from the open in 2017.  to my untrained eye his spine seems to be in a much more neutral position. there's plenty of space between his chin and chest and it looks like there's a little bit of anterior pelvic tilt. (please forgive my crappy dots 🙂 and here's a picture of DJ with driver in his hand from a video that was uploaded about a year ago though i don't know when it was filmed: further, this is what DJ has to say (in his own words) about his posture in an interview with golf.com from 2016: https://www.golf.com/instruction/steal-dustin-johnsons-power-move-and-add-10-yards-tee so to answer your question i would say DJ's posture looks (to me) more like the picture of mike on the left but with less anterior pelvic tilt and less extension in the cervical spine. and based on what he has to say about his posture he doesn't want to set up like mike in the picture on the right.
    • Suffice to say we can trust @ChetlovesMer's taste in putters about as much as his taste in belt color…
    • In the last 15 years, a lot of work has been done on fairway wood heads. This includes moving around the center of gravity (see diagram of RBZ Stage 2 FW). 1. Higher and more forward leads to lower spin, more penetrating shot. This works best for golfers with high clubhead speed. 2. Lower and more rearward leads to higher spin and higher launch, which can maximize distance for the average golfer.  In 2006, Tour Edge launched the Exotics line of FW. Exotics used titanium cup-face, and steel maraging (removes dead weight from hitting area) to develop some very hot FWs and hybrids. This year's EXS model uses a new high-density carbon steel alloy Callaway, Cobra, Mizuno and Ping likewise developed FWs with a variety of head options. Of course, the FW works best if you fit it with a shaft that matches your swing. Go to a demo day, and do a side-by-side with your 3W and others. And, if you carry a single FW, also try 4Ws. Many players - including some big hitters - get more out of a 4W than a 3W. This depends in part on how you come into the ball.
    • TXGolfDude, Here also is a link to the 2018 MyGolfSpy article rating 3 woods for 2018. Given it's 2019 now I'm sure any improved technology between now and 2018 is almost immeasurable, although I'm sure you'll find marketing pitches that contradict that. 2018 MOST WANTED FAIRWAY WOOD 24 Fariway Woods, 20 Testers, the largest unbiased head-to-head 3 wood test in the world. Short Story is #1 = Exoitics CBx, #2 = Callaway Rogue, #3 = Callaway Rogue SubZero, and there are many others included. I always take these types of things with a grain of salt. "The Best" tend to come from some method of aggregating the data of the test results and the only thing I can be sure of is that my results will almost surely aggregate differently. Then of course there is always the argument of how much a particular company might have "donated" to this test group and how that might influence the results. Also I believe the right shaft is a big variable in anyone's swing  but I could not find what shaft manufacturer was used in the testing so I have to  assume they used what ever the stock shaft was that came in the club (noting that sometimes there can be different shafts used within the same year by the same club manufacturer).   Still this information is very interesting, and although it does not answer your question how much better they are than your 2008 gamer, you might take your gamer and try some of these clubs in the list to see how they compare. Good Luck!
