Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

I enjoy tournaments where there are some obstacles to overcome, but these courses and weather conditions are assinine.

This is really a typical final major round for Norman.

Awesome for the Irishman!!!

That 5 wood from 270 that he stuck to withing 4 feet was the backbreaker for Poulter and the rest.

I get to keep my avatar for another year.

Jack Nicklaus could hit a MacGregor strata block persimmon driver and a wound balata ball 300-340 yards. He won the PGA Long Drive in 1961 with a 340+ yard bomb with a 43" driver. With today's equipment, his accuracy and distance off the tee, he would absolutely punish these courses.

Tiger lifts weights and is much stronger than Jack's fat ass. Many courses have tried to "Tiger proof" themselves by moving sand traps. In one instance, they moved the traps from 250 yds to 265. When asked how he would combat that Tiger said "Fly 'em". Tiger's strength also shows up in deep rough like at the U.S. Open. Tiger can power the ball out where Jack couldn't. Tiger can fly his 3 wood 270 and he recently did it. Tiger also has developed shots Jack didn't know were possible. The Tiger "flop shot" is but one example. I see other players using it now but never before Tiger "invented" it.

This was when "Jesus" was 16. And it's an INVERTED flop. Tiger didn't invent the flop and he didn't invent the 3 wood chip.



Ask any of Nicklaus' competitors and they will say that his strength was one of his greatest assets, as well as his upright swing plane, which allowed him to power the ball out of deep rough. He's the same guy who played with lead tape under his grips to increase the mass of the club and could still lash the hell out of it.


I know that it's popular to canonize Woods, but tossing a guy aside as some chump who had fifty+ top 3's in majors is just lunacy.

Umm no.

As for as the equipment argument I would say not if Jack had todays equipment, but what if Tiger had to play with the equipment they played with in Jacks hey day.

I would love to see an old school tournament with todays players persimmon woods, balata wound balls, the old non-rifle irons, and old bulls-eye blade putters.
