  1. I decided I would start this thread because it seems like we have to be talking about this on a regular basis so I figured why not pool them to one spot. As someone who works with back injuries, the speculation, method of treatments and over analyzing makes me laugh a bit. In my professional opinion, I am surprised that Tiger is playing this weekend if his spasms were debilitating enough. Also just because he has a team of people working on him, doesn't mean that he would heal faster. Sometimes you have to leave it alone and do minimalistic treatments to let it recover. He
  2. Considering the extent of Tiger's injuries from his recent car accident, especially the compound fractures in his legs, I'm interested if anyone who's familiar with these kinds of injuries has a good guess on when will Tiger return if ever? Is full recovery totally out of the question? If it isn't, can we expect to see Tiger return as early as next year?
  3. Who is on your Mount Rushmore? For me it's Snead, Woods, Nicklaus, Hogan. Not in that order. 🙂
  4. Discuss The Second Life of Tiger Woods by Michael Bamberger here.
  5. Discuss Seven Days in Augusta by Mark Cannizzaro here.
  6. Well, there's that… and now that the final major is over (but there are still tournaments Tiger could win), let's get a start on looking at 2019. Vote in the poll above.
  7. Tiger Turns 44: Woods' 44 Greatest Statistics - 15th Club Tiger Woods turns 44 years old on December 30. This is the first birthday for Woods as the reigning Masters champion since… What are your favorites? I like:
  8. Distance control is an "athletic" thing for most golfers. Unless you're Bryson DeChambeau, who knows that a 12" backstroke makes the ball go 15.739 feet (or whatever), players tend to putt best when they tap into their athleticism. That's why studies will point out how golfers putting from 25+ feet with their eyes looking at the hole often have better distance control (even though they slightly mishit some putts) than golfers looking down at the ball. Combine both: do what Tiger Woods learned to do from his dad. When taking his last look at the hole, he'd take a mental "snapshot" - a
  9. I didn't include an "I don't know" in the choices in the poll above because that's the only answer any of us should choose. Hell, even Tiger and Joe himself don't necessarily know if he's the best choice - Tiger just uses the available information to arrive at a decision. But I've been thinking for awhile now that LaCava may not be the best for him. Stevie Williams was, of course, Tiger's caddie for 13 of 14 majors. He split off from Tiger not too long after the Thanksgiving night stuff in 2009. One of Stevie's best qualities, IMO, was that he didn't take shit from Tiger, and he'd st
  10. http://www.golf.com/tour-news/2017/10/31/tour-confidential-tiger-edition-what-are-your-expectations-his-return-and-his-season I have a hard time believing people still think the chip yips were ever really a thing for Tiger. IMO he was caught between techniques, and playing on some grainy greens. He had put all of his time in on the full swing, and neglected his putting and chipping and short game stuff. He played beautifully only a few months later at Augusta the one time he "had" the "chip yips." But let's see what the poll is.
  11. I'm going to vote after I give it a little thought.
  12. https://www.golfdigest.com/story/tiger-confidential-what-pros-really-say-about-tigers-chances-at-the-masters What fascinated me about that article is the breadth and scope of the opinions, the sheer variety. Others correctly point out, for example, that even after a layoff in 2010, he came out and finished T4. Then two quotes later someone is saying he has no chance.
  13. Simple question. I voted for Woods. I'll close the poll when either of them wins.
  14. https://www.pgatour.com/tournaments/farmers-insurance-open.html I think he makes the cut, finishes 20th to 40th.
  15. Mod Note: this topic was created from an off-topic discussion in the Predict Tiger's 2018 Season discussion, after about 31 or 32 posts (hence @billchao's plea in post #31 to get back on topic. ??? No more so than almost every player on the PGA Tour. And less so than a good chunk. I don't know where you're getting that, but I disagree I'm getting that from watching this video and othes. He dips down 6 inches on a five iron, and stays down there, pulling off a massive timing move pulling up his left side to have an 8 inch level low spot. Amazing, but I s
  16. Tiger underwent an "Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (MIS ALIF) at L5/S1". I honestly wondered why he didn't do this before. You can have a few fusions and still turn plenty well enough to play golf. http://www.tigerwoods.com/news/2017/04/20/225438912/tiger-undergoes-successful-back-surgery-to-alleviate-pain
  17. Since it appears (knock on wood) that Tiger Woods will be starting his first season in many years with a clean bill of health, I thought it might be fun for us to predict how we think he might do. Go ahead and make your pick in the poll and then elaborate on your answers in the thread if you so desire. To me, as somebody who wants to see him do well, anything from "Not bad" on up will be a good thing. For the sake of fun, though, I'll predict "Really good." He starts the year decent, builds his confidence, and breaks back into the win column before years end. What say you all?
  18. Curious to see what y'all think. I'm leaning toward picking the second option, but a small part of me wants to vote for the two beside it (higher and lower). Yes, it's predictive. Who knows? We're not medical doctors (most of us, anyway), and even those of us who are have no insight into his specific medical situation. Just, as they say, "taking the temperature of the room."
  19. Discuss "The 1997 Masters: My Story" by Tiger Woods here.
  20. https://medium.com/@GrandCentralPub/working-with-tiger-woods-c9ed9cdf7ea4 Worth a read. It's very short.
  21. http://www.golf.com/tour-news/2017/02/12/tiger-woods-shows-support-nikes-equality-campaign He's largely avoided being political int he past, but he has commented on race a little in the past. He's not in that commercial, from what I could see, but he's tweeting about it.
  22. The day Nike closed their equipment business, TW put the Cameron back in the bag. Not one of the 100s of replicas Scotty Cameron has made him, he put THE putter back in the bag. The putter he used to win 13 major championships. I am thinking he just sticks with the putter, and voted "No" in the poll above.
  23. http://www.pgatour.com/news/2017/01/04/woods-commits-to-farmers-insurance-open.html Good to see his schedule filling out. Hopefully he'll get 2017 off to a great start with an early season win.
