Golf is more fun to watch when Tiger is in the mix

Look at the stats man...his best average driving distance was 303 yards. Did he hit some 350 yards bombers, yes. Shoot he hit one in Hawaii that was like 425 yards or something crazy, but to say he always hit it 350 yards is ridiculous.

None of those things he injured should affect his putting abilities.



Not being able to play, that's what disrupts sharpness and mental focus, sure it effected him a lil bit but his injuries effected with his mental game more than anything, you lose a lot of feel

Two weeks ago the Waste Management Open in Phoenix set an all time 1 day attendance record of 204,000 with an estimated 700,000 total attendance for the event. Without Tiger...
I understand what Tiger did for the game but let's give him a spot next to Faldo in the booth.
And BTW, Jordon just won his 9th last weekend at 23 years of age. Guess how old Tiger was when he did it? That's right 23. Jordon also has 2 Majors to his credit so I don't think its safe to say Jordon can't match or beat Tigers records. I think it is safe to say Jordon will not change the game the way Tiger did. Tiger was something special, and African American to boot. They are two different personalities and players on the course. I don't think Jordon will ever have to be told to stop screaming the Lord's name in vein every time he misses a put.

One thing for sure, Jack's records are safe as far as Tiger is concerned...

did I say he hit the golf ball 350 continuously? no I didn't, but he would roll one out 350 almost every tournament, quit reaching :)

The guy has a 9 hole course in his back yard. Do you really think when he had these injuries that he just sat back and had surgery, went to therapy, and didn't touch a club? :confused:

LWC 02-15-2017 03:04 PM

Tiger was the man. He intimidated his opponents into submission. He was a freaking machine that could make any clutch putt, chip in on you, knock it stiff from the woods. It was truly amazing. I'm not sure there has been a more dominate figure in sports in my lifetime. MJ is close. Maybe Tyson before he got into raping?

Then that faithful night his hot wife found out he was tagging all the waffle house waitresses and hit him in the head with a nine iron. That was it. She tore off his cape and he was never the same. Not even close. Everyone, including himself found out that he was not super human.

I'm reaching? Okay. Show me the stats where "almost" every tournament he rolled one out to 350 yards.

Well I guess you've never played competitive golf, I played on the NTPGA for 3 years, it doesn't matter how much you practice, playing in competitive golf is different animal compared to tournament play. It's a different tone, lack of tournament play is clearing showing its side now for tiger , you forget out to grind and score.

In his prime, Nobody beat Tiger and Nike Golf, except his wive, however, with a Nike.

Next time you see golfs greatest rounds on the golf Channel and tiger is playing farm and it's from 2000-2006 you'll see it. I wouldn't just say that without proof.

That's great you played on the NTPGA...and yes I have played lots of competitive golf in the past. I agree being out of the competition type of play can hurt how you finish. It's all mental. BUT...the metal game for Tiger went down hill after his lady found out about all of the other ladies.

NoFence 02-15-2017 03:10 PM

Here's something we can all agree on. That 7 iron she hit him with has got to be worth a lot of money.

bowhuntntxn 02-15-2017 03:10 PM

I would like to see him competitive again, and so would the PGA.

I thought it was a 9 iron :p:p:D

Kidding. I don't know what she smashed that window out with, but I bet it's worth a ton! ;)b

GarrettH 02-15-2017 03:12 PM

Does this mean that my courses will have more available tee times??? Thank Gawd!! because it's exhausting... I can't wait for this golf popularity to decrease!!

I love Tiger and I hope he can somehow be competitive again

lol I guess we will agree to disagree, the man had major surgeries on bones and tissue that is very sensitive to golfers, those bone's/joints/tissues have deteriorated....doesn't matter what shape he's in, his body won't allow him to play professional golf much longer.

Tiger Woods distance varies from club to club. According to Golf Digest, Tiger hits the driver an average of 285 yards with carry. His long irons (2- to 4-iron) range from 250 to 200 yards. His middle irons (5, 6, 7) range from 208 to 172 yards. His 8-iron travels 158 yards, and 9-iron flies 142.

And his ole lady hits a 9-iron......into his forehead :D

Abcdj 02-15-2017 03:15 PM

Someone with true "facts" optional of course here, will clear this up.
But The amazing thing about Tiger, in his prime was his ability to win when he was "SUPPOSED" to win.
Don't know the "facts" But I bet in his prime his PGA starts to PGA Wins % is light years ahead of any player in history. Someone please find these facts. I am too lazy!

That's because 800 courses have closed in the last decade. A lot more than have opened.

At one point he won 27% of all events entered. With fields of more than 100. Unbelievable.

Tiger averaged 285 yds with carry during his career.

It's important to note that the people interviewed for the article are the leaders of golf's governing bodies... they are likely to paint a more favorable picture of the state of the golf industry than say an actual analyst would be

One of the strange things about Tiger that I could never wrap my head around was - he never came from behind (after being behind after the 2nd round) to win a major. But don't let him get ahead of you or it was adios muchachos!
Not sure of the mentality there but he had trouble if he wasn't in the lead. He won plenty of majors but just think if he would have won from behind in a couple of them.

Mentally 98% of AO's "all Others" knew they were going to lose to him in the Majors. He was only playing a couple of people, himself and the golf course:D

Come on back tiger..... and your girls.

SwampRabbit 02-15-2017 03:36 PM

Tiger Woods was to Golf what Lance Armstrong was to Cycling. Both screwed up and their sports are no where near the mainstream that they were when they were at their prime and scandal free.

Just like cycling doesn't need Lance to come back, Golf doesn't need Tiger Woods to come back. Rather some other player needs to step up and be dominant and have the marketability to raise the importance of the game into the masses that normally wouldn't care. In order to do that, you need a real sports story, something that transcends the sport itself. Lance had the whole cancer thing for instance...

UrbanBuck 02-15-2017 03:40 PM

Yes I do, I would love to see it. He did so much for golf and i think a lot of people are rooting for him still. You may be right, but I'd still love to see him back in form.

yeah I was going to post those facts, he almost won the masters in 2013 If it wasn't for that ''penalty blunder''....he got injured late that year and that was a wrap on a career, that back injury he sustained that put him on the sidelines really hurt his confidence, the world caught up to him

Yeah, but it took him 3 years to win again after the incident and he hasn't won a major since then. It definitely took a toll on him during that time. She took his mojo. :eek:

I found this on Google too but it's just wrong lol. He would routinely hit his 8 iron 178-180.

yeah because of injuries, the scandal happened late 2009, missed a ton of golf in 2010, came back at the masters and placed in the top 10 I believe from his first tournament back....lets say the scandal happened and take away all of his injuries, he would have 100 pga tour victories and close to breaking jacks record....injuries have been his Achilles heel , the scandal in the end might of cost him a tournament or two with confidence, the injuries have cost him close to 50 tournaments missed

150class 02-15-2017 03:48 PM

I grew up watching him as a kid while he was in his prime so I Would love to see him come back and play at a high level against all these kids that are blasting it on the course now that looked up to him in the 90's and 2000's.

Unfortunately looking at his swing from the last tourney he played in it looks like his body is saying no to him ever being able to play at a competitive level
