TIGER IS BACK

A little more info on the Pro Am. The "buy in" was $75K. They played with Ricky and said he was very cool and a nice guy. They came in first with a -13 on the front and a -8 or -9 on the back. Uncle Kenny shot 78 or 79 with a 9 HDCP, so he played well. Of course he didn't get off to a good start and said "OK boys, I'm sorry, but I need a double double Jack". Once he got that into him he played well.

75k?! Wow... Glad he had a great time.

Tiger's hitting great drives and fairways shots.  His short shots around the green... not so much.  By my count 0-4.  Two chunk chips, poor bunker shot, and poor putt from off the green.  Just off the green in two shots on a par 5 and gets a bogey.

I am amazed at how many people love this arrogant guy, yes he used to be a great golfer but he has never been a great person. I quit watching golf fir awhile cause all they showed was him, now ill probably quit again because if he is playing and in last place Eldrick will be the only one getting air time. Sorry just my little rant.

You'll be in the minority. When Tiger plays, golf ratings are way up. Fact not an opinion.

Well, I have to admit, he is playing far better than I thought he would. I'm surprised he hasn't had an "injury" yet.

Love or hate him, he's been good for the game. When he was dialed in there was nothing else like it. I hope he gets back to form and competes again. So far it's looking good.

Not very good par 5 performance, but for the first day I'd say he did pretty well.

He seems to have matured and humbled himself. Seeing how the young guys like being around him says a lot.

I tend to agree with you.   As a commentator I heard suggested, we may be watching the arrival of a new Tiger.   During his heyday, Tiger was totally focused, he never smiled much and he didn't interact much with his competitors.  When he went to the range prior to a round, he went straight to hitting balls.   Now he is smiling, he is interacting with the young bucks.   Young bucks that he had a hand in creating, when he converted golf from a game to a sport.   He sees their camaraderie while at the same time having the desire to beat each other.  While Tiger definitely wants to beat the young bucks, I think he will settle nicely into the mentor role because during his non-playing role at the Ryder and President Cups, he likes and respects them.  He sees them as the future of the game in which he had a prominent role of creating.

I wonder how many of yesterday's heroes weren't great people...  but you never knew it because they weren't held under the microscope of social media and the internet.? Just sayin'.

 

They can't all be smiling chatterboxes like old Ben Hogan!!!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I think a lot of that comes from his role as Assistant Captain the past two years on the Presidents and Ryder Cup teams.   He really seemed more relaxed and one of the guys there, as opposed to when he was playing in it and he was a complete loaner.

 

John Feinstein touches on this a lot in his current book The First Major: The Story of the 2016 Ryder Cup.

 

Edit: My bad, I typed this before finishing the thread.  I see my good friend Wahoo, pretty much said the same thing about his role in the team matches.

That's 20 years younger than me, and I'm playing the best golf of my life right now. So I won't be surprised when he wins a few more majors...

Yeah, if he had played the 5s at -2, which seems about avg., then he would be T1.
