Anyone else watch golf for the first time in a long time today? He seems to be getting back to form. He was right in it today, next week is Bay Hill, that dude lived on the course for a LONG time.

I don't follow golf.

I do listen to ESPN radio going to and from work as well as smoke breaks and all they do is blow Tiger.

I don't watch but at this point I do hope he goes out with some success. Win a major, smile for the crowd, ride off into the sunset...

He was the energy of that entire place. I'd hear monster roars from across the course and every time, you could tell it was him if it was louder than shit.
You were there and didn't follow Tiger who were you watching?

That fat white guy that went to my high school and didn't make the cut.

You know, that one that spent $12g's on hookers and blow at the Lake of the Ozarks...:-)

I think a lot of it for me at least is that professional golf is all very similar nowadays and pretty bleh...

In Tiger's heyday he bombed it past everyone, was clutch as hell, and pulled off shots that simply no one else could...it was intriguing to watch and it was really interesting trying to see other players try to keep up and figure out ways to beat him.

Today EVERYONE bombs it, there isn't much strategy, and it's just a matter of who can make putts...

Shot making and course difficulty has been rendered almost obsolete....I mean honestly a lot of the time, it's boring to watch.

I guess all those comments I have in the golf threads during tournaments must be from me not watching golf. Moreover, "pumping up the new generation of golfers," was done precisely because everyone knew that golf needed Tiger Woods for ratings and that something was missing in his stead, and you can't talk endlessly about someone who isn't playing. Thanks for proving my point, though.

Tiger was +3 after his first two holes Thur.


There's your final margin.

Jack Nicklaus was bombing 300 yard drives in his prime with persimmon wood heads steel shafts and very low tech balls considering today. Jack may have hit it 380 with todays tech in his prime.

When I played in college, I saw D2 golfers who hit their driver straighter and better than Tiger is now. He's below average on tour hitting his driver and off the tee. Probably should almost hit his stringer every time off the tee.

Who was it?

I played in an AJGA event with Kevin Na circa 2001 at Ironhorse in Leawood. He seemed like a nice guy. I was definitely one of the worst kids in that event and he put up with me quite well. He got like 2nd or 3rd I think while I beat like 10 people in the field. :-)

I used to caddy for the Nike & Buy.com tour when they came to Dakota Dunes. My buddy caddied for Jason Gore in a Nike Tour event, said the guy was one of the coolest dudes ever. I usually got random chodes, Steve Woods (no relation to Tiger) was one I had one year. Don't even remember the other ones. Always the nicest dudes ever though.

Then he'd be hitting mid to long irons into almost every long par 4. He's better off rolling the dice off the tee.

FWIW, he is 127th in strokes gained off the tee, losing an average of 0.055 shots per round to the field.

Ken Duke is first on tour in driving accuracy, hitting almost 78 percent of his fairways. He is 164th in strokes gained off the tee, losing -0.239 strokes per round to the field. His driving average is 271 yards.

So, if Tiger can hit his stinger 270 yards on average (he can't) and hit 80 percent of the fairways doing so, he'll actually end up losing strokes to the field.

Nobody would be blowing it 40 past Koepka


That's not humanly possible
