Could/Would CB, GI or SGi irons Turn Tiger Back into the Tiger of old?


Recommended Posts

Here's a picture of tiger woods' 8 iron..... make your own decision about his iron play

Item_6890_3.jpg

thats the pic I was thinking of!

Weird pic. Looks like a bit low on the face, no?

 

It looks like a GI 8-iron as it is pretty big, in fact it is huge. My 8-iron does not look that big. I am sure most players on the PGA have the mark in the same spot.

 

Tiger just cannot stay with the young guys anymore. They are too good. Right now Tiger is 15 shots behind the leader. Jack would never be there. Tiger needs to go back to Butch but even that cannot turn back the years.

 

Excuse my ignorance but which young gun has 5 wins this year ( all with TOP Players in field I may add)? Also are you nuts saying that Tiger's 8 iron is a GI 8 iron and yours 8 iron is smaller the Tiger's? You must be kidding.

Tiger's career has been best defined by his putting. No one in the game has ever seemingly willed the ball into the hole with the consistency that Woods did prior to Thanksgiving, 2009. I don't have stats to back this up, but these days Woods looks very average by Tour standards with the putter now.

He has flashes where you think he's back to his old self, then there's tournaments like last week. In years past, he could be anywhere on the green, and there was a reasonable chance it could go in. Now, as a fan, I say, anything out of 15 feet probably is either going to lip out or not even threaten the cup. It all comes down to proximity to the cup now.

Dude couldn't make a putt in a basketball hoop right now, which is fair, since they're 10 feet off the ground, but you get my idea.

Haven't scrolled through the thread so forgive me if someone already said this, but Tiger needs Nike to invent a GI putter and put an old school super high MOI Sumo in the bag.. Those would help his game more than irons.

Hate to say it and I know he won't do it

But check out Phil killing it with the oversize grip

The Sumo?!

You know what, why not? What's the worst thing that could happen? He hits it into a canal in NJ or under a van in Boston?

Well done.

Tiger was having his way with porn stars. I don't think he needs any more hetero cred.

No. It's the driver that seems to give him the most issues.

would love to see him put his 3 wood swing on the driver - dude can't help himself going after it all the time with the big stick. only club he is never smooth with.

Just curious as to what everyone else thinks on the subject? Would today's GI/SGI technology improve Tigers game over the tiny blades he's played for years? Could it be the difference maker to outing him back out in front of the pack the way he used to be or would it make no difference? What do you think?

No.

The only equipment change I would make---if I were Tiger---would be to switch to a heavier shaft in his driver.

He plays 130 gm steel shafts in his irons (DG X).

He plays 103 gm graphite shafts in his fairway woods (Diamana Blueboard)

Yet he insists upon playing 70 gm shafts in his driver (Diamana Whiteboard).

I think he'd find that some of his control problems with the driver would disappear if he did what Sergio Garcia does. Sacrifice a few extra yards (that he doesn't really need) and play the 103 gm Whiteboard in his driver.

I agree with this Doc. Even if he were to go up 10-20g that would make a big difference in his accuracy.

If he uses a heavier shaft driver and loses a few years, how will he deal with the 'haters' on GolfWRX hammering him for losing those yards?

They'd find something else to complain about. The topics would vary I'm sure.
