  • He is starting to look like the Tiger of old..Amazing what a good back will do
    On another note-Speith and Mac missed the cut..
    Speith has missed the cut 19 times in the PGA...Tiger has missed 17
    Think about that for a second.

  • Golf is golf regardless.

    Tiger may be competitive, but will never be dominant again. which begs the question "why is a competitive but relatively average Tiger Woods interesting at all?"

    I think it is the magic that he displayed in years past. Most golfers dream of the times they used to play good to great golf. Just as Tiger is now, Phil is now, and a whole host of seniors on the Champions tour. Dave Duvall, Hale Irwin, Colin Monty, and a slew of others that were starting when I was still in my mid 20s. Makes for great stories and the next generation will make for great story lines too as they emerge into the limelight.

    Freddy is still a favorite.

    But that's different then making for a legitimately entertaining tournament.

    As "fun" as it may to see Tiger teeing off on Sunday near the top, it's not the same as watching him bust out the red polo and plow ahead while everyone else withered.

    Nothing against Tiger. Just has a very "Jordan with the Wizards" feel

  • IMO, golfers should be able to be keep getting better at golf throughout their 40s. But most decline. My best golf days are ahead of me, I know that for sure.

    I feel everyone else has caught up to him. He had a back issue due to his style of play. I had somewhat the same issue due to my style of work. Twist Pinch and sciatica serious. Him trying to make it back and getting close to contention makes him a bit more fun to watch. Maybe other guys out there have the same hopes and dreams in the amateur world. Who knows?

    I had to stop playing for a few years after my retirement from my job. I was unable to swing a club nor was I able to afford too much as things changed rapidly. 3 years ago, I got a practice net and easily could have broken the 15 handicap realm. I was feeling actually confident in my swing and able to put the ball where I wanted it on the green. Late that year, up camping I fell downhill on my shoulder. I tore the rotator cuff. It is still tore. I do not know if I can play yet. The other day my wrist to elbows hurt so much as I practiced swinging my wedge, that my shoulder did not feel a thing. I think those muscles are just either water depleted or too cold and tightening up. Could be both. I do not know what is gonna happen in the future yet..but 3 years ago was low 50s for me. Definitely no more hard work for me. I shall be using tools that can make the work easier.

  • Man, I'm really scared to hit that point.

    I *live* to improve. When I'm not getting better at things, getting stronger etc....I fall apart really fast and mentally spiral downward very quickly into a deep, dark depression. It's always all or nothing with me. Always has been.

    Wasn't Nicklaus interesting in 1986 when he won his last Major at age 46?

    Golf's always more interesting when the big names are in contention.............and even though Tiger hasn't be great in a long time, or even good, it always makes a tournament more exciting to watch when he's on the leaderboard.

    I'm not a fan of him personally, but I love golf, and like it or not, Tiger's good for golf.

    in 2013, 99% of my posts were about a certain topic that is now off-limits. You're saying you liked my PWR posts? I appreciate it.

    Not really. I mean it was exciting. A one off walk into the sunset.

    That’s not what people are hoping for. Tigers allure is the sense of drama his potential dominance brings. But those days are gone.

    He will just be an average golfer who might surprise. I’d rather see Spieth become dominant.. or a handful of guys develop a rivalry.

    Si...Average?Lmao..
    The guy 7 months ago couldn't even swing a club and since has come back and finished
    23,cut,12,5 and 5..
    Those were tough courses and a lot of big names he finished ahead of.
    When he gets his driving accuracy improved,I don't think he will be stopped.
    The only thing that has stopped him is himself or health which for over 5 yrs it has.
    The things he has done to this point is far from average.

    Just like when Tom Watson was in contention at the British, or Fred Couples when he jumped up into contention a couple times at the Masters a couple years ago.

    There isn't some golf spectating law Si that says we can only be interested in the top 10 golfers. Tiger Woods next to Nicklaus is the best golfer in the history of the sport...........of course golf fans are going to be excited and interested if he's playing well and on the leaderboard.

    Jesus... i swear you and i are married some times

    My point is that the draw of Tiger is the idea of his return too dominance. Maybe not for you.. but in general.

    Right now he is 6-1 to win (WIN!) the Masters. Best odds in the field. That says how desperate people are to see him get back to Tiger of old. That's the "interest." Vegas knows it and is taking advantage. Thats my point. He's not played well at all. Yet, he hasn't sucked and the idea he might be the Tiger of old is drawing a bunch of attention.

    You can take the high road on it. Thats fine. Crowds will be larger and more people will turn in. I'll watch the Masters this year regardless. I'll be more entertained if he's in contention. I just dont think its all that "interesting" until he starts winning tournamentS (as in plural).

    Until then, he's just an (above?) average golfer in the field.

    He's got like 3-4 top 10 finishes in a row, why wouldn't he have those kind of odds.

    Tiger looks good, his back isn't giving out, looks healthy, hitting it solid...........and remember odds are about betting, so all Vegas cares about is raking in as much cash as possible, and what better way than Tiger playing well and degenerate gamblers wanting 6-1 odds?

    btw, I'm not taking any road, I'm explaining why everyone's excited about him playing well again. I don't feel the need to harbor resentment towards him, or at fans for enjoying seeing him play well again.

    He's good for the sport, he always has been. Whether he's the hero, or the villain.............or somewhere in between.

  • To be clear... i don't harbor any resentment towards (anymore... he's long paid his due)

    And I get he's good for the sport. My contention is that the excitement is less about 2018 Tiger Woods and more about the hope he's 1997 Tiger Woods.

    That's the Tiger people love..

    Either way, I'll watch, and yes, he is good for golf.

    I love watching the best in any sport but I mean the elite..
    A Jack,Joe M,Jordan.Griffey,Wayne and Tiger..
    All dominated and people try to replace them but never get to that level which defined those guys.
    Yes even when they aren't what they was you remember and watch(I do and did)
    Tiger is not playing like he is done however ..(when he was hurt)
    I see a 2008 version that when he plays more those 2-3 bogeys every round are pars.
    For someone that has been gone for pretty much 5 years it amazes me but really it should
    not because he is not normal..A club in his hand transforms him to do things that you will
    never see again.He certainly has plenty of motivation to prove people wrong..
