  1. Agreed. The "however" allows that some improvement of the lie may happen when you "ground your club lightly", and that you will not incur a penalty in that case. I do think it is about the "lightly" - contrary to what @iacas said - and not about the lie improvement. What lightly means is subjective, and its my opinion that the reason this type of behavior happens all the time on the tour (as someone said) is precisely because it is hard to call.

    Come on Tiger. Get a birdie on a par 5. Make the cut!

    Yeah - but he's a villain in my book. Make it easy to root for anyone else. Like Vijay!

    Agree - I also think he'd be very happy with -2 today.

    To make sure the internet is working well? Nobody running away with it right now and wind picking up. Do I smell a Tiger lurking?

    Golfer Elbow

    No. You can have a technically sound golf swing without locking your elbow.

    +1 on Fleetwood. Also, Alex Noren at 50:1 isn’t a bad bet. Hasn’t won, but has been hot.

    My Swing (chspeed)

    Working out straightening left leg, and keeping head back in downswing. Both caddie view and down the line view in same video. Down the line shot isn't as pulled as it looks - feet are open to camera line - bad angle.
  9. When will you be there? I'm heading with there with some buddies this week. There Thursday-Sunday.

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

    Apologies for the politics. I was talking about the bigger picture of this entire debate.

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

    Read entire post please. Point is that the answer to who is the GOAT is subjective. You can choose facts, statistics, or polls you want to support your conclusion, and discount others that don't. If we can't agree on the definition of GOAT, we'll never agree on the determinative criteria.

    Oh come on - taking my quote out of context? Is this Fox News

    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    I think Tiger's biggest strengths is his mindset. Also, I don't think there's any time to change your mind in a fast golf swing. Most likely just that he's still rusty, timing isn't great yet, and simply hits more bad shots than he used to in his prime. That, and golf is hard. :)

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

    I'm with @skydog on this one. Talking about facts and statistics and polls when debating who is the GOAT is pointless. You can talk about who's the better putter, driver, finisher, etc. Those can be backed by relatively useful numbers. Although as we've seen, numbers are debatable too (faster greens, tougher competition, etc. etc..ad nauseam). But going further and somehow trying to agree on which criteria and set of statistics you'll pick and choose to determine who is the GOAT is hopeless. I don't mean to troll, I am was interested in this topic. I'm done though. Good luck.
