  1. It's not like he woke up one morning and discovered he had forgotten how to play golf. There are still flashes of brilliance, it's just that mediocre and godawful shots are currently overshadowing them. One day soon something is gonna click, and then....hopefully... Can't wait to see some big slices of humble pie being eaten when Tiger's holding a Claret Jug in a few weeks time.
  2. I saw all I needed to see only 2 years ago. And what I saw at Augusta a few weeks ago looked pretty encouraging, too. I think the doldrums are over. He'll go on a winning streak again, and soon. Sunday afternoon is as good a time as any.
  3. This tournament has Tiger's name all over it. I think we are are about to see the next phase of Tiger's career begin this weekend.
  4. Dang it. I'll keep quiet in that case.
  5. Tiger looks like he could go on a charge. It looks like he's playing really well this morning. I'm just hoping that he can string something together and leave himself well placed if he manages to go really low on Saturday.
  6. This has the makings of something great. A sports story of the decade. Tiger doesn't have to play. He made it clear he'd come back only when he was good and ready. The 66 worst ball score suggests he's good and ready. He isn't showing up to miss the cut. If his game was still off he could wait and come back at the British or whenever he chose. Neither is he showing up to be an also-ran. He's gonna win this thing.
  7. - Phil Mickelson going into Augusta in great form. Maybe a perfectly respectable four rounds in the offing, nothing more than that. - Jordan Spieth playing his best golf thus far of his career and a chance to really take over as the face of golf in America. See above. - Rory McIlroy going for the Career Grand Slam and 3rd major in a row. Tries too hard, gets frustrated, bad things will happen; misses cut or utterly anonymous by Saturday afternoon. - Bubba playing well and with a legitimate shot at his 3rd green jacket in 4 years. Bubba will
  8. Quote: There may not be a next time if the USGA has to call on the club pro he has to list as a reference when you fill out the application Understood - sorry, I don't know how the system works. My 14 handicap is unlikely to ever trouble anything beyond a Wednesday afternoon scramble!
  9. Not really interested in cyber-stalking a stranger to work out his golf handicap. Sometimes internet forums can be very judgmental. Some might say that "Vanity handicapper" isn't a million miles away from "Bull*****er." If he can play to his handicap, I hope he does next time he plays in a qualifier.
  10. This from two years ago: http://thesandtrap.com/t/146/whatd-you-shoot-today/9468#post_758294 Sorry, you were asking him for scores, so I looked to see if he had mentioned any here. Not bad for a course of that quality?
  11. Quote: I just watched a few hours of the British Open and my opinion on British Open courses has been the same for the two decades I've been watching golf on TV: they are butt-ugly, boring, in bad shape, and have a very common gimmick to make them more challenging - the impossibly-deep-and-steep-sided pot bunkers. OK, I know this is sacrilegious to many people.... 100% agree. I have zero interest in sentimental "tradition." Golf thrives as a modern game. Show me any British or European course that has features comparable to, say
  12. Quote: Seems to me The Open Championship has lately been sentimental winners (Els, Clarke, Harrington) or nobodies (Curtis, Hamilton). If that trend continues I could see Westwood representing the former group & someone like Jordan Speith representing the latter. I agree with this. Gotta say though - if that trend continues - the British Open will start to look like a novelty tournament. And Tiger's decisive victory at The Players Championship this year will look much more like a "major" win in comparison.
  13. Probably not a popular opinion - but I miss the metal spikes, although the onus was on the golfer to tread carefully and respectfully on the greens. The modern plastic spikes? To be be honest, anyone weighing 200+ may just as well wear New Balance on the golf course, rather than golf shoes. There is no noticeable difference in adhesion. And if you're going to walk the course, the New Balance will be more comfortable.
  14. I agree with the national Championship for the United States logic. But applying that same reasoning, I guess a more contentious question is why "The Open Championship" should not be formally renamed "The British Open" especially as most folks outside of the U.K. already call it that.
  15. I think experienced golfers who head out on to the course with newbie golfers assume a responsibility here. Maybe kinda far fetched to say its like sitting in the passenger seat next to a kid with a learners permit, but it is a little bit like that if you are playing with someone who hasn't got the first clue what he is doing on the golf course. I had the same I paid my money so I will play however slowly I wanna play conversation with a friend who started playing a while back, and who got real mad when I told him to pick up and try again from higher up the fairway after 6 shots
