Tiger Woods will win a major this year.


Maybe two. I know it's early, but the three things that make him great appear to be back: power, mid-irons, and short game.

It would be some dramatic theater if Tiger and Rory lock up on a Sunday final paring in a major.

Well of the 6 times he won the Farmers he went on to win at least 1 major in 5 of those years. He has looked good this weekend.

I hope so, but just don't see it.

Golf with him chasing jack is better.

His putter still fails him at times. Which never used to be an issue.

Highest golf ratings ever if Rory and Tiger are in the final group at Augusta.

Yep, I remember when LSU smoked Washington the second week of the season, I reserved my hotel room in Miami.

Not really, but the golf season is extremely young. Let's not give Tiger 19 majors just yet.

I don't think Jim and Nick could take it.

Don't disagree. But, he sure looks confident. It's been awhile since he's had that "look".

Thought the exact same thing. That commercial with them is awesome. At the end when Rory picks up his glass and says, "How'd you do that" to which Tiger responds, "You'll learn" is hilarious.

This is true. The guy is flushing every shot. I haven't seen his swing this beautiful in years. Everybody on tour is shitting their pants after this tournament. Goodluck to the rest of the field this year.

Easy...

His swing is a lot better because his swing from 2004-2009 was terrible.

Guys aren't afraid of him anymore. They may know he's still the best player, but it's different.

I think he wins Augusta, and maybe another this year. But no one is concerned about it. They know he's going to win 3 or more a year if things are right.

This is the dumbest thing people say. Everyone thinks that they don't make the putter identical to the Cameron.

And to all the Titleist lovers, Cameron is a copy of the Anser.

Yeah, you're right. That's why Rory stuck with the identical Nike/Cameron putter in Abu Dhabi.

One, terrible analogy. Two, if the above statement is true, you're an idiot.

He wasn't allowed to put the Nike in play until 1/1/2013. Tiger did the same thing when he first switched to a Nike putter.

Putter is what gets blamed for rust. By the time Augusta rolls around, Rory is going to have a Method in his bag

Honest question, how many Majors has Tiger won with a Nike putter? Just wondering.

Not really a good barometer question, because he switched to the Nike putter after the whole scandal, and he hasn't won one since that or the Foley swing change.

Nike's method putters have 3 major wins since 2009.

BTW I'm not a Scotty lover. I actually use a Cleveland Milled. It's just what feels best for you. IMO Tiger doesn't look comfortable putting, not as much confidence.

The whole game has lacked confidence the past few years. You can tell with all the rehearsals he's had to do before hitting shots, and he can't seem to will the putts into the hole when has to have them in the past. Which is ridiculous to say about a guy that won 3 times last year.

He'll never be the guy that won all those times in 2000, because the talent level on tour is much higher. But he's going to win majors again.

I just love when people blame it on the putter and Foley. "If he would just go back to Titleist and Butch, he'd win every event."
