  1. That's not a Phil v Tiger thing. It's the fact that Tiger was in contention (tied for the lead?) and Phil is close to DFL. If Phil had done this while leading the tourney, then my guess is the firestorm would have far surpassed Tiger's. Anyways, I don't care much to argue this; this tournament and Phil's place in it is one to forget. The USGA lost this one.
  2. I would say this isn’t the case- many folks at ESPN, fox, and TGC have been slamming him and calling for him to pull out of the tourney. I think it was an asinine move by Phil but the extent to which people don’t care ( I would say I don’t care -much) is because he’s close to dead last in the field. If he were in contention and did this, then yea, we’ve got a serious problem. But because he isn’t, I don’t think Phil is ‘doing damage to the game’, more so just doing damage to himself. He would be well served to WD.

    Anyone Going to the U.S. Open at Shinnecock?

    The bigger issue is going to be the PGA in May over the next several years with a bunch of Northern courses on the schedule (Bethpage next year). If there is another late Spring like this year, it’s going to be make things really hard on some superintendents to have things ready by early/mid May. Inevitably there will be some issues and the PGA will need to gravitate to southern courses and leave the northern ones for the US open.

    Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    For the record, this is a straw man argument that would get called out vehemently on this board if it were made by a "pro-Jack" guy. I am pretty solidly in the Tiger=GOAT camp at this point and don't feel like participating in this thread anymore, but just had to point out this double standard.

    Faldo's Masters commentary is awful (as usual)

    I think Faldo is pretty good at his job. He makes decently funny comments mixed with some good insight and he doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously anymore.

    Rude Fans at PGA Tour Events

    If they do it in a relatively courteous manner, then I'm OK with it. Try to defuse a situation before it gets worse and a marshal has to step in. I would rather the caddie say something than the player I suppose.

    I'm all for good manners. I don't condone the actions of these idiots we hear at pro events, but I think they should be dealt with by marshals and not the players themselves.

    Well if Tiger and Phil have both blown it the next best thing is a potential Rory-Reed-Spieth-DJ duel on Sunday.
  9. I was say not-guilty but I can see the inconclusive argument. I don't think he did anything to improve his lie because I think his ball was in the fairway and his club was grounded in the rough, and matted down the rough a bit. But the actual piece of dirt his ball was resting in (his lie) was not impacted. He improved his ability to make clean contact with the ball (intentionally or non intentionally) but not his actual lie.

    I would agree that we haven't seen enough of Tiger's A game at this point to have any real context on where it stacks up relative to the top players. My hunch is that the 'new' Tiger A game is not going to win a horse race where the winning score is 20 under. I think his wins may come in tough, grind it out tournaments where his experience and grit can carry him a long ways. With that said, I think if/when he wins more majors, the Open Champ. is probably his bet. Not to count him out anywhere else though.

    It’s probably premature but I’m starting to feel like Spieth might be to Augusta what Rafa Nadal is/was at the French open. I think he could win a boat load of green jackets.

    Emotional eating or because you would lose a bet? :/

    Good to see Hoffman continuing his run of what seems like 10 straight Masters atop the leaderbaord early on.

    Augusta's Front 9 vs Back 9

    Yea I agree that the back nine is better but probably not by as much as the media might make you believe. I think part of the bias is just based on the fact that until not too long ago, television coverage didn’t even start until the back nine so no one (without being there) ever saw the front nine. The back nine has the great combination of scoreability, photogenic holes, nostalgia, and drama potential.
