  1. That's the biggest difference in Tiger this week vs the rest of the year. His short game looks world class once again.
  2. Tiger's draw is working today. He rarely hits the fairway on #2, spot on this time!
  3. Indeed, I seem to recall a few times he's hooked it into the trees left. I always attributed it to first tee jitters.
  4. The real test is #5, bogeyed that every round during his win in 2019.
  5. Zach Johnson is probably the closest. Obviously not in the same ballpark, but 2 majors 12 wins total is nothing to sniff at. Oh and Jim Furyk with 17 wins including a major. Both players were shorter than Nick Faldo was compared to the rest of the field as far as I can tell.
  6. Massengale was actually pretty good and I didn't know his name either. He won 3 times from 1975 to 1977 and Dan Pohl won twice both in 1986. Neither won a major yet Dan had a lot more high finishes in those majors, 7 top 10s including a 2nd and two 3rd place finishes. Rik had 1 top 10 which was a 3rd place finish in 1977. Apparently he retired from the tour due to a back injury in 1983 around age 36.
  7. Probably not, the shortest on the tour in 1981 was still Rik Massengale's 242.3 yards while the average distance was 259.3 and Dan Pohl lead at 280.1. Those figures are very close in terms of percentages to what we have today. The average last year (because it's a full season worth of stats) was 296.4 and equivalent percentages above and below that would be 320.2 and 277. Bryson lead at 322.1 and Andrew Putman was last at 277.9.
  8. You're not wrong, Bryson and Phil use extra long tees for max distance. Tiger on the other end almost exclusively uses the short tees either 2 1/8 or 2 1/4.
  9. Tiger hit a crap chip from a tight lie there. Not surprising at all unfortunately. Duffed one from a similar position yesterday as well.
  10. Phil is 7-under through 8... Finally keeping the ball in play off the tee. Yesterday he hit 10/13 fairways, but the misses included 3 out of bounds. Putting well at 8th in the field.
  11. Tiger is miles off the lead, but 6-under for the round is somewhat promising ahead of the Masters.
  12. Easy to forget about Phil. Still struggling on the big tour at +4 through 7. I know the courses here are harder, but he should be doing a little better right?
  13. Lots of weak right shots from Tiger. Gross. Hey, at least he should par from there which he hasn't accomplished yet on a par 5.
  14. Pretty depressing. +4 on the 3 par 5s he's played so far. There are 5 par 5s on this course he used to feast on.
  15. Ugly start by Tiger on the shottracker. But I guess he did win this event last time after bogeying his first 3 holes.
