    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    I didn't word my question well. What I meant to ask was, do you think the problem is some sort of physical restriction due to his back fusion or other surgeries? Or is it just some flaw in his swing? I remember back at the beginning of the year, you seemed to know a bit about the type of surgery he had. It just seems so strange to see him hit all the incredible shots he does, then be so erratic when his ball is teed up. He obviously is generating enough speed, I'm wondering if he just has trouble physically getting to a certain position while attaining all that speed.

    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    I have a question for guys like @iacas and @mvmac. We've all mentioned, heck, we've gone on and on about, Tiger's struggles off the tee with his driver (even his long iron yesterday). I certainly don't know enough about the golf swing to know what's wrong. I'd bet you guys have watched and dissected his swing(s) over the years. He was always a bit shaky since he went to graphite, but I don't remember it being this bad. What do you think his problem is, and will he ever be able to fix it once and for all? Or will this always be his proverbial "Achilles heel"?

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

    I've posted many times in this thread, and from the very beginning, my position has been Tiger was better then Jack. Not by a lot, but better. We'll never know for sure however. Honestly, posts like the one @brocks just left have converted me on the strength of field depth argument. My only disagreement with the prevailing view is the opinion by some that the best of Jack's contemporaries, Watson, Trevino, Casper, Palmer, and many others, were inferior to the players of the late 90's-2000's Tiger competed against. I've heard the better equipment and the next generation is better arguments. I just don't agree the players of that era (97-'07) were that far evolved from those great players. Todays players however, are a different story. The guys out there today grew up watching Tiger, and seem to relish the chance to play against him. This is a tribute to Tiger. He is now facing the result of his legacy, which is players who are vastly superior to those of both Jack and Tiger's prime. They train hard, have tech advantages, and have seen a real leap in equipment, especially in the ball. They seem to play without fear (probably a bad description of this "new" game), and just seem to take turns impressing the hell out of us. Finally, kudos to Tiger. He showed yesterday he can hang with these guys, and it should be fun to watch the next few years as he goes up against them.

    Predict Tiger's 2019 Season

    Not try to pick nits here, but I thought he dropped to 51 after Firestone. No big deal though, as I said, I'm super impressed.

    Predict Tiger's 2019 Season

    I was referring there to his play before this week, where I believe he was just outside the top 50. (51, I think?) This week he was amazing. The last two days impressed me tremendously. As of now I definitely have him top 20.

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

    It will very shortly be pointed out to you, Tiger is far superior, and nobody here cares about second, or third. Jack accomplished what he did against guys who were one step above club pros. Tiger, on the other hand faced a bunch of immortals in his 10 year period of dominance. They would've destroyed Jack's competition. OOPs. I wasn't fast enough. It's already been mentioned. On that note, I'm outta this thread right now. I suggest you do the same... 😀

    Predict Tiger's 2019 Season

    I usually wouldn't put too much stock into one tournament, but what he did this week amazed me. I wasn't as impressed as a lot of you were with his year up to this point. He appeared healthy, and played well at times but nothing I thought would have stood out in peoples minds over the season if the name "Tiger Woods" wasn't attached. This week, and today especially, was as close as I remember him playing like the old Tiger since he was, well, the old Tiger. To put up a round like that, hitting only 4 fairways, and having one putt defy gravity was amazing. Some of his pars impressed me more then his birdies. He has the rest of this season, and his offseason, to figure out his driver, and if he does,then you'd have to give him a good a chance to win any event he enters. Long story short, I went with one win, but could easily see more if he fixes his driver. Majors I went zero, only because as someone said earlier, I wouldn't predict anyone to win one. Too many good players out there now.

    I have about five "Tiger will get jealous" jokes, but I won't go there...

    2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive

    I know, right? It'll be good for the PGA, but weird having the Major season end before mid July. What's the reasoning behind the move? Is it a last ditch effort to make the Players a fifth major?

    2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive

    I think Tiger's pars were more impressive then his birdies. He made some great recoveries today. And yes, after today he has earned his spot on the Ryder Cup team.

    Great play by Scott, but Brooks is an asassin. 3 majors in 14 months, and don't forget he was out injured until after the Masters.
