Phil has played this golf course more than Tiger
Does everybody think Phil is done with majors? Seems like he shows up for the Masters, and that's about it. I'm not sure how much he really cares about golf at this point in his career.

One of the parts of the game I have studied at length is the mental game, because of its importance.

Thanks WEAVE. I was waiting for someone to go there.


If you don't think the events of the last three or four years in his personal life have had a profound affect on Tiger's game, then you've never played golf.

I am by no means a great player, but I love the game. Its one thing to have a bad day off the course and a great round because you start having success and can funnel your frustration into shot making. Its a big difference when you are going through life changing events.

I got laid off a few years ago. I played golf once during my unemployment, and it was probably the worst round of my life. The entire time, I was thinking about not having a job, not being at work, etc. Couldn't buy a putt.

Imagine having your entire life on display in the media, your wife and kids leaving you, everyone in the world finding out about your infidelity, to go along with physical ailments. Now imagine trying to compartmentalize all that to think about shaping a shot and all the necessary things that go along with it?

In my humble opinion, we have not seen the last of Tiger Woods in his old form. I don't get why so many people want to see him fail. A guy that has been so amazing and dominate in his career. Can anyone who watches golf honestly say the US Open duel between him and Rocco wasn't one of your all time greatest golf moments?

Guilt from not being with your kids is a motherfricker for most people and I imagine that it takes years to come to grips with that reality. I assume he is finally coming to some peace within himself and realizes his kids are going to love him no matter what.

I don't have a damn clue

New caddie, new coaches, new mindset, etc.

His willingness to get back with E and his child said a TON.

it had less of an impact than the swing change and injury.

I would disagree, but that's my opinion.

re: Tiger Woods will win a major this year.


It' easy to "want to see him fail". He has always been a prick as a person, for one. I know several people who work the pro circuit for their companies, and in their positions, they've come to know many of the worker bees at the various tournaments around the country. Woods has always treated them as being wayyyy below his wonderful self, & his temper tantrums at greens keepers, marshals, tourney circuit workers are legendary.Two, the only morals he has can be found in the gutter. It wasn't just his wife he was cheating on, it was his kids. Three, his whole public persona has been proven to be a fraud, & that is why many of his long time commercial supporters dropped him. He is with out a doubt the best golfer in history, with Jack a very close second, but I look at the whole package , and he does not come close to Jack, or Arney when it comes to class & professionalism. Read the books on him, & use common sense: a leopard like him never changes his spots. He's intelligent enough, or should be anyway, to know he has to make some public changes, but those spots of his won't go away.Sorry, I know I am the lone Woods disser here, but the question was asked & this is how & why I feel.

re: Tiger Woods will win a major this year.


That was the first golf tournament I really watched from start to finish. Haven't looked back since.

I wanted Tiger to win, but damn I also wanted Rocco to win. Rocco just had such a great story and attitude.

When Tiger nailed that putt on the 18th, I think I almost brought my house down. My parents came running in the room asking me if I was okay.

We hear the same shite every time he wins, OMG tiger is back!!! Guess what?

He will not win a major this year, he will not break Jack's record, he will be a little above average the next couple years, then he will fade away.

Yeah, this isn't true. He doesn't sign for the most part, and he's not trying to be friends with the volunteers, but that's not who he is

This pretty much sums up the Tiger Hater's Moving Standards List

1. He will choke on the weekend-------> X
He won? Well...
2. He won't win another Major
Oh, he won a major...
3. He won't win multiple majors
He won another Major?
4. He won't break Jack's record

For the record, I'm not guaranteeing Tiger will break Jack's record, but with I can say with absolute certainty that you will see this progression from the non-fans.

re: Tiger Woods will win a major this year.


I think he certainly could win one this year ... He looks more comfortable all around in his game.
He's seems to be healthy and looked pretty unbeatable this weekend..

Could the Tiger of Old finally be back... Time will only tell
