    How Do You Add Up Your Score?

    I add against level fours or level fives depending on what the first few scores are. If there are more 5s and 6s I'll do it against 5s. If there are more 3s and 4s I'll do it against 4s. For example: 454435445 565544565 I would do the first nine against 4s, +1 E +1 +2 so 38. Second nine against 5s +1 E -1 E = 45 for 83. If I wasn't doing the two 9s separately, I'd probably look at this against 4s and then regret it after the first half :) +2 goes to +3 +5 +6 +7 +8 +10 +11 = 83. Sometimes I do against 5s just for the heck of it. Going along this whole string against 5s is really easy. I'd just look at how many under it is. 1 2 3 5 6 7 6 7 8 7 I do quite a lot of adding up and am lazy about it, so tend to figure out the easiest way to do it. I think this is the easiest way to do it.

    Here is what I think his putting routine is: stand behind the ball and visualize it. Step in (starts here) address next to the ball look up at the hole two practice strokes put the putter behind the ball step up to it settle the feet look at the hole Pause fire he does the same thing every time except on tap ins. Same is true of his long game. It’s a slightly different routine from the putting but it takes exactly the same amount of time every time. Within about 3-4 tenths of a second each time he does it. Incredible. He reckons others change it about a bit and it means they’re unsettled. Watch videos of him and time it.

    I’m not certain because I’m not him, but I would be shocked if tiger didn’t mean he was hooking it and slicing it when he said he had a two way miss on the range. Tiger saying he had a two way miss meant that he didn’t know if the ball was going left or right of where he was aiming. If it’s always going right of where he’s aiming then he can aim left and get the ball in play. If it’s sometimes going left and sometimes going right then he can’t do that. That’s why he said it. Semantics or not. He didn’t mean he was worried he would miss fairways left and right. He knows when he goes out that he’s going to do that even if he’s striping it.

    My point is not really the 0% thing, but that someone who misses let's say 25% right and only 10% left is aiming in the wrong place. If you're aiming right for your shot pattern, you should be roughly equivalent left and right. DJ is roughly equivalent. 15 vs 18. I suspect that almost everyone on the PGA Tour is because they wouldn't get on tour if they were aiming in the wrong place. I agree entirely that 50% each side is a real problem. Hard to say the blame is where they are aiming it though. That means missing every single fairway and yes that's not good. The entire point of my posting in this discussion is simply to point out that missing on both sides doesn't mean you have a two way miss. A two way miss will mean a lot more missed fairways and those misses will be wider too. The shot pattern will be significantly larger, which makes it extremely hard to manage and hard to score. That's what Tiger had. 7/7 missed fairways on the front nine suggests that he had a two way miss going. That the misses were split left and right does not (not necessarily)

    Do you think DJ has a two way miss this season? He's fairly similar on fairways missed left and right. 15% and 18% respectively. Find me a player on tour with a 0% fairways missed on one side and you'll have found a unicorn. Most people have a ball flight that goes one way or the other most of the time. All of those people will aim somewhere other than the middle of the fairway so that the ball winds up in the middle of the fairway. All of those people will miss fairways on both sides. I don't think it's particularly helpful to say that all of those people have a two way miss.

    I didn't say that.

    Two way miss to my mind means that the ball is going both left and right of where you’re lined up. If you play a fade then sometimes the ball will go straight and sometimes it will slice but hopefully most of the time it will fade. Almost all the time it will finish up not to the left of where you lined up. If you aim it down the left and hit it straight you’ll miss left. If you slice it you’ll miss right. That doesn’t mean you have a two way miss. Take Dustin Johnson. He’s the best ranked driver in 2018 strokes gained off the tee. He has 15% left rough percentage and 18% right rough percentage. He almost exclusively plays a fade. Would you say he has a two way miss? tiger said he had a two way miss on Sunday so I’m sure he did. What’s less clear is whether he fixed it on his way round. I suspect he did because his driving improved on the back nine (hard not to to be fair). That he missed left and right does not mean that he didn’t fix it. That’s all.

    You might be. I was talking simply about that missing fairways to the left and to the right doesn't mean you have a two way miss going on. If it did, Tom Lehman would have never missed a fairway right in his life, but I'll wager he did. Did you ever miss a cut to the left? I sure have and I saw a good number of shot tracer style shots from Tiger this week that started left and faded, but not enough to get to the fairway.

    I never said it wasn't. I was just pointing out that whether he missed fairways left and right doesn't on its own tell you that he had a two way miss going.

    I doubt his misses are often a result of missing the middle of the face. Twist face won't help you if your face is open to the path, if you hit it in the middle of the club.

    He was planning on all of his shots finishing in the best possible spot. If he's on the range and half his shots are going straight and half are missing 30 yards right, he's not going to aim his opening tee shot down the middle unless the right miss is harmless. If there's a lake right, he's aiming that down the left. He's going to aim somewhere that gives his shot pattern the best outcome. The two way miss sucks because your shot pattern becomes much larger and it's much harder to control for that. I should have said his straight shots will miss left, his fades will hit the fairway and his big misses will miss right. Sorry that wasn't obvious.

    I don’t think you can say that missing in both sides means he has a two way miss going. If his swing is missing right or going straight he’s likely aiming down the left. Straight shots will miss left. Big misses will miss right and small misses will hit the fairway. That’s a one way miss with fairways missed left and right.

    My point was more that if Tiger had posted -20, then Koepka wouldn't have had anything he could have done at that point and it may look like they are all folding. That's why I put fold in quotes. Take the 2000 US Open. If Tiger hadn't been playing, it would have been a great tournament and really close. People would have been talking about how tough the course played and how +3 wound up in a playoff. As it is, no one talks about any of that, because Tiger made it irrelevant. As to the depth of field thing, I don't disagree with you that the field depth is much higher. I would also happily buy that DJ and Brooks are better players than Vijay and Phil and Retief and Ernie were back in 2005. My point there was that some people seem to think that the field were incredible until 1997, then they fell away drastically for about 15 years and now they're back. The reason people think that is because for a 15ish year spell there was one guy who was far and away better than everyone else. If he gets back to being that, then the field are going to appear to have suddenly got worse again. They won't actually have. It will just look that way for the people who try to undermine Tiger's legacy. Yes the field is better now than ten years ago, but they are not immune to wobbling. Spieth wobbled at Carnoustie. DJ wobbled Saturday at Shinnecock. They all do. They just don't always have one person cleaning up when they do, so it's not called out so much. I'm on your side on most of this...

    Not sure I buy that. The young players have only been playing against each other. The holes in their games don't get exposed because there is no one out there who is good enough to regularly expose them. If Tiger keeps improving and were to get back to his best, I think you'll see the young players "fold". They won't actually be folding any more than they are right now, but it will be made more obvious by having one guy out there who is that good. I don't know if Tiger will hold up or if he will continue to improve, but I am hopeful. He dropped three shots in his first two holes last week and wound up two back. His putter got cold Saturday afternoon and he's definitely not yet at his best. He has shown flashes of it in each part of his game. Once he gets them all together at once, watch out.

    The (No) Sixes Challenge

    Well that sounds like a common sense way to do it. I get tentative and cautious and wind up overprotecting. Consequently I put myself in positions where if I hit one bad shot I'm making six, where if I were more aggressive and played freely I would still be able to make 5 even with a bad shot or even two. I have made more sixes since I started thinking about this challenge than I ever did beforehand. Basically in my 20 rounds prior to @iacas posting this challenge, I had about 8 of them with no sixes. It's taken me nearly a year to manage another one. My head is a fun place to be on the golf course...
