Four Rounds, No Pain = Success for Tiger

tw-driver

Tiger Woods may have finished fifteenth out of eighteen golfers this week and stumbled with his final round 76 but as strange as it may sound his week at the Hero World Challenge was a success. True, Tiger always plays with the expectation of winning and would normally never consider looking up at fourteen golfers a successful week but it certainly was. Stats wise he was hitting the ball a long ways, finding plenty of fairways, stiffing his irons and… Continue Reading

The Fist Pump Is Back

tigerfistpump

It didn’t take long for Tiger Woods to start feeling like his ol’ bad ass self. Tiger took his game a step further today with his bogey free 7 under 65 that had him moving up the leaderboard at the Hero World Challenge and he even broke out his classic fist pump. His wasn’t the lowest round of the day, Bubba Watson had a 63, nor was it the second lowest, Brandt Snedeker shot 64 but for Woods who is… Continue Reading

Holmes Leads but All Eyes on Tiger at The Hero

tiger-hero-16-tm

J.B. Holmes was the real hero today in the Bahamas but of course it was Tiger Woods we all tuned in to see. Holmes leads the elite field at the Hero World Challenge after a smoking 8 under 64 which included seven birds an eagle and a lone bogey at the opening hole. An impressive display of late season golf for sure. But it was Woods that was the “star” of the show. Woods gave us a bit of everything,… Continue Reading

Painful Day at The Honda for Rory McIlroy

by Jeff Skinner Another chapter in a very strange golf season was written at the Honda Classic today when defending champion Rory McIlroy walked off the course.  Rory was spraying it all over, was seven over through eight holes and after he dumped his approach to eighteen in the water he packed it in. Reports were that he told nearby reporters that he was fine physically but he said he was “not in a good place mentally.”  As the golfing… Continue Reading

Not Feeling It At Abu Dhabi

by Jeff Skinner What a disappointment at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship as both Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods were sent packing as they missed the cut.  Sure, the fans are disappointed but how do you think the sponsor feels after reportedly paying a combined $4 million dollars to lure the pair to the desert.  That’s a pretty poor return on your investment. Rory was so out of sorts he ditched his new Nike putter in favor of his… Continue Reading

Masters Ready? Some Yes, Some No

by Jeff Skinner Going into the final round of The WGC-Cadillac Championship there may have been some doubts about Nick Watney’s ability to close out a tournament.  After all, Watney blew his lead at last year’s PGA Championship when he stumbled in with a career stunting 81.  But this is a new and improved Nick Watney.  He worked with mental coach Dr. Morris Pickens and he has a new attitude on the greens.  He also has a caddie that keeps… Continue Reading

Confused Woods at The Open Championship

by Jeff Skinner We got to see some great golf this week at St. Andrews but that’s the norm for The Old Course.  I could watch golf on the Old Course forever and not tire of it.  Heck, I could just watch the course with no golfers on it and be just as mesmerized.  Even though “King Louie” took all the suspense out of the final round there was still plenty of excitement around The Old Course.  Rory’s 63, the… Continue Reading

Tiger Woods Dumps Scotty Cameron at The Open

by Jeff Skinner Since he turned pro and started winning golf tournaments in 1996 Tiger Woods has spent the last decade and a half doing things on a golf course that we have never seen before.  He has astounded us with his long drives, amazing shots, one sided wins, piles of major victories and clutch putts.  Ah, the clutch putts.  On the eve of what some call his most important major in years Tiger has surprised us again.  He has… Continue Reading

Paddy and Tiger Face Off at Firestone

It looks like a showdown at Firestone as Padraig Harrington has a three stroke lead over Tiger Woods going into the final round. Harrington has been searching for his golf game all season and it appears he has found his stroke, at least for the weekend. Harrington realizes that the final pairing with Woods has melted plenty of players. Harrington has been there before with Woods and knows what to expect. A win by Paddy would be vindication for a… Continue Reading
