re: The Players Waiting For Tiger at 18
Even with his new approach,

Those of us old enough to have seen him in his prime saw that familiar old stare today. Dare we call it, “the eye of the tiger.” Once Molinari dunked his ball into Rae’s creek Tiger had that green jacket in his grasp and wasn’t letting anyone come and take it from him.

Pretty sure I saw him give Tiger a high five before he got all the way up the hill. Have to go back and look at the replay

Ya Tiger is one of the most popular guys in the clubhouse. And it's not just top players, he plays practice rounds with several of the unknowns.

But old Tiger wouldn't have needed someone to come back to him...

Old Tiger would have been in the lead.

And not needed the leader to blow-up on the back 9.

Tiger played this smart...he let the other players make mistakes...and just played safe and smart and didn't take chances.

Tiger’s knowledge and strategy at the familiar course was his ace in the hole. Truly an incredible day for golf

I thought the same thing on Saturday at the close of his round. His smile was priceless, you could tell he was feeling it.

He’s always played safe and smart, just from the lead.

Except for Poulter. I couldn’t figure out why he was there.


They’re the same age and Ryder cup shenanigans aside Poulter is a good dude and family man.

However it's also been well documented that he is taking a different approach to life after all the shite went down. Maybe he's turned a new leaf.
You'd honestly have to be blind or living under a rock not to notice he's a completely different person now. There's wisdom in those eyes.

Maybe I'm a "glass half empty" type, but I was disappointed that Mcilroy and Jordan Speith weren't there.

I don’t think Rory is ever winning the Masters. Augusta has completely mindfricked him.

Almost every Euro that plays on the PGA regularly has a place in Jupiter close to Tiger and the young American players. They typically play at Medallist or Bear’s Club.
