Tiger is Back and I'm not disappointed



  • Currently only 3 shots off the lead with 4 holes to complete.

    Some of his remarkable shots being pulled off. A rusty 14th had him lose a shot but currently 3 under



  • yep it is good to see him back...he has had a long and troubled rough patch (obviously some self inflicted)

    Looking at his swing it has changed, obviously with the intention of taking some of the stress off his back, seems to be getting some decent length off the tee still though, so that's great news for him, and I think if he gets back to his best, for golf!

    Imagine if the final 2 groups in the Masters next year was Speith, Johnson, Day & Woods!

    He's paying $81 to win Masters! 🙂



  • @hooroo reckon he'll be happy just to be playing uninterrupted at the Masters



  • The power of Tiger ...

    Saw this thread ... realized it was live, immediately turned over, saw he had finished, immediately turned back.

    Doing my best to think of any other sports star I would do that for ... Conor McGregor maybe

    Must be others, but it shows what a grip he has on the game

    This!

    I have been watching live at work just because. Most I would do would be having the leaderboard updates running behind the scenes.

    Anyone that has come to my office has paused to watch.

    He is a money fountain for golf



  • I read the thread title as "Tiger is Black and I'm not disappointed".

    That made me laugh loudly!

    Did you think I was one of his fabulous hussies??



  • Sooo good to have him back. He did well today even though he struggled on the par5s

    Also good round from Ryan fox in Aus PGA. Couple over yesterday but -5 today and back in it. Has Steve Williams on his bag for the tournament too

    That's the way I felt when Lomu played for Harbour. Clearly no longer up to it physically, but I still watched every minute, just in case.



  • Opted to work from home today due to this and the cricket and Aus pga



  • Media is like someone who gives up smoking then suddenly gets his hands on a packet ... if he's playing golf, fine he's news, however if he's farting and scratching his arse ....



  • This is like when Jordan played for the Wizards. He wasn't at his best but he still dropped 51 in a game.

    Tiger is the Jordan, Ali, Bolt, Federer of golf. You want him to succeed even if you don't like him. You want him to add to his legend. I know Nicklaus is the all time major winner but Tiger is the best golfer I have ever seen.



  • Boom .... 3 under through 6 today just missed a putt for share of



  • Wow wow wow boomfa ...

    Outright lead after the most spectacular par 5 you'll ever see. 600 yards ... 350 drive ... 250 fairway wood up high which drops 15ft from pin and Nails the putt. He is the one.

    Side note, miss 3 just called Jordan spieth 'John Beef' ... that's gonna stick





  • Fark yes! After struggling with the par 5s yesterday he is destroying them today!!



  • Like or loathe him, golf is more interesting with Tiger competing



  • Golf has done superbly well in his absence with the likes of Scott, Day, Speith, Johnson, McIlroy, Fowler, Watson et al, but his presence on the golf course is even better!



  • Holy shit. Was not expecting this come back to be significantly different to the earlier false starts. But Tiger is looking sharp as fuck. Given the stress golf puts on your back and the number of surgeries he's had, it's crazy he's going so well. Can't be easy to reinvent that much of your game, while dealing with the odd personal issue! 🙂

    Hope the health side of things isn't an issue and we get to see a genuine return to the top.

    Get in the hole!!!
