Well, that frees up my Sunday.

Yeah...such a shame. I know it’s a great accomplishment for the kid... but come on....just turned Sunday into a snoozer.

I'm glad he missed it.  He's just getting over a neck problem.  If he had to play who knows how many extra holes today, plus maybe another 36 tomorrow, he could easily have torpedoed his chances in the Masters.  This way, he had a very positive week, a T5 in a strong field, and he can take tomorrow off and then prep for Augusta.

Until April....

Eh, it lasted about 5 minutes....

That bomb for eagle and then the cold blooded birdie on 17 after Tiger had stuffed it were just too tough.

Kind of felt the same. And there’s no “maybe 36 tomorrow.” If he would have won, he would have to play 36 tomorrow. There’s a consolation match for 3rd and 4th.

He's dead to me.

You don't believe that....I don't believe you mean that.    What until the Masters!

 

then again, he could be like the Detroit Lions.... even before the season starts their fans say "Wait until next year!"

You don't play 36 if you win or lose 5&4 or something.

Tiger missed a few short putts in the afternoon.  Not a good sign going into Masters...

I don’t know. He played a lot of close golf today that is no doubt mentally draining. I can see a few misses coming from a day like today. I was wondering on some of the misses as well though. Especially that last one.

He used to never miss putts like that. It’s like you can see that slight bit of doubt that never showed from 97-08.

But, giving due credit, the kid (can’t spell his name) was a rock.

Haha good point. We’ll say likely between say 30-36 tomorrow.

A myth. He missed his fair share of putts like that.

Tiger played well. That last putt isn’t any indication of how he’s putting. He otherwise performed pretty damn well. Beer Garden poured in that 30’ for eagle so he had his share of luck as well.

He putted pretty well overall. Made a lot of big ones. The 52yard pitch into the bunker is what really hurt him. The announcers cursed him as well!! lol. Hats off to the other guy. Draining that eagle on 16 and the birdie on 17 was tough as a TW fan

He may have intentionally tugged that last putt. LaCava prolly whispered in his ear “Make this, Boss, and we play at least one more hole and maybe 36 more tomorrow.” Tiger may have gotten a stinger down his neck that very moment.

All jokes aside, while I know he wanted to win, I think he won’t mind a day of rest. He got a T5 which should move him up the WGR a spot, maybe two.

    • I’ve never tinkered with swing weight before, and when I build a set of irons I usually just settle for the feel of the clubs as-built with the idea that I’ll eventually get used to the different feel. That said, my main set of irons feels perfect to me (probably just familiarity with them), and adjusting swing weight is something I’d like to be able to do in the future to make my other sets feel closer to them. I’ve just never invested the time to work on it. 
    • Day 321 Did mirror work on takeaway/backswing piece, and then hit balls with 7-iron and 3W working on hip turn piece. 
    • You know, as a musician I find a lot of similarities between learning a musical instrument and golf. I don’t think I’ve found any two hobbies more similar.    When it comes to equipment, the similarities hold true. A professional guitarist will be able to make a cheap First Act guitar from Walmart sing in the same way a scratch golfer will play scratch golf regardless if he uses his own clubs or yours. The overall result is pretty much the same regardless of the equipment. The skill of the player eclipses it in importance.    I think in both hobbies, cheap equipment has come a long way, to the point where the differences are subtle. In golf I notice more expensive clubs have less cosmetic defects. The material is better, meaning the clubs are less likely to break, and definitely in the case of wedges/irons wear down. But is that to say a cheap club is going to break in a year? Probably not. To be honest, most of it just feel. The strike of an expensive club feels smoother, sounds better, and frankly is a more enjoyable experience in most cases to hit. 
    • So, that's really a thing? Never even heard of it. 
    • @ajl, it seems to me that what you're asking isn't about the performance or design differences between one set of irons from one manufacturer versus another, but simply what the difference between a premium set of golf clubs and a generic or a knockoff set is? The answer, as in all products in life, comes down to quality. A premium manufacturer cares if their manufacturing process produces X% variation from club to club which can result in differences in performance from set to set. A clone company won't and they know their customers don't, so they don't invest the time or money into having higher manufacturing tolerances.
