when Tiger plays well it's not because of the clubs, and when he plays poorly it's not because of the clubs

the Nike Square ST8Fit is one of the easiest clubs to control...something tells me that Nike is not the problem (and yes I know this isnt the driver he uses but was making a point)

So if he started using TaylorMade or Titleist or Adams or (insert manufacturer name here) woods, would his swing with the long clubs improve? Obviously not. He is making awful swings and has a two-way miss going with his woods. Simply changing the clubhead and the name on the bottom is not going to improve his statistics. The more reps he gets in competition, the more he will get back into a comfort zone. He's shown flashes of brilliance in each aspect of his game, they just don't last long. That's what nine months out of competition will do, even to the world's best player. Amazingly, he's contended in four out of six tournaments and already has one win.

It isn't the clubs, but for a moment, assume it is the clubs.... how do you know that the Nike doesn't give him the best results? Perhaps he hit it even worse with other clubs...

 

That was fun... but seriously, it isn't the clubs.

like johnny miller said during the broadcast he might be getting too big for his golf swing. he probably would benefit from losing a little muscle mass.

 

 

Totally disagree. Tiger is in great shape and has the flexibility of a rubber band. Johnny Miller doesn't know what he is talking about...perhaps he should look into jumping on the fitness train...maybe then he could break 80.

Eh...........yes Johnny knows exactly what he speaks of...........one of the greatest ballstrikers ever ,Miller spent one winter in isolation actually chopping wood and added 20lbs mostly of muscle.he game suffered immensely and he was never the same........bulk has never helped in the game of golf!! Tiger's body has increased to the point that he has slowed some. JMHO

Lol. I heard Miller say "some have said Tiger's biceps have gotten too big" and out loud I said "but a lot more have said the same of your mouth Johnny". :D

 

Tiger's just having some trouble with getting stuck. He'll have it worked out soon enough.

Tiger would NEVER play any club if he did not believe that they were THE best for his game....no matter who makes them. Also, it is not like he is playing a Nike driver or fairway metal straight off the shelf. It is completely optimized for his game. Never blame the clubs, especially when you are #1 in the world.

Didn't Tiger play his trusty Cobra a couple tournaments because the Nike offering didn't work? Then Nike went on an overhaul to completely revamp the lineup and give Tiger his needed driver characteristics.

 

Give it time, that's all I'm asking. He'll probably stick to the Nike and then find the shaft to help control.

I agree with the whole indian - arrow thing, but I would love to see what Tiger would do with the ft9 th like Phil had. The one in which phil was flying it over Tiger at the Masters. Just for kicks. I will say I ve hit all of nike woods and I must say they dont feel the greatest out there. But he is a nike guy and will NEVER change.

rehberg, he's used other OEM products, as was proven before. If he thinks an FT-9 will help, he'll grab one. If he thinks the 909 D3 with a Blueboard will help, he'll use it until Nike clubmakers figure out a club for HIS driving characteristics. Or he might ditch the latest offering and go back to the SQ Tour/Whiteboard 83X.

I don't think Tiger's driving would improve with Phil's lefty FT-9. J/K. Or maybe it would! His game will come around-just needs some confidence and work on getting to this left side. Look at it this way, another top 10 and he's playing like crap! Anyone would agree that this isn't the Tiger we're used to seeing.
