I’d Say Tiger is Playing Pretty Well….

76th win on the PGA TOUR. A few “off” years since 2009, some swing changes. Now, we get to witness perhaps the second coming of Tiger Woods. He looked like a cat playing with a ball of string this week at Trump Doral. Well played, Mr. Woods. The Masters should be interesting.

And Rory came back to throw down -10. Well done, young man. Class act, that Rory.


1st in birdies, 1st in putts per Green in Regulation (GIR), 2nd in putts per round. Even though he only hit 53% of his fairways, he still managed to hit 75% of his greens. Think putting matters, just a little?

    It was a good win for Tiger. He looked very good. I enjoyed watching the next 5 players go up and down the leaderboard. Overall, it was a very good tournament to watch!


    1. Cool to see Rory play with class and precision over the weekend, too. 32 days to Augusta!

    Anyone know what happened to Mike Weir? Also, if you haven’t read “Who’s Your Caddy” by Rick Reilly, it’s a hoot. So is his book “Sports From HELL.”

    1. You got me interested in Mike Weir again….nicely done. He’s made a whopping $27K this year & missed his last two cuts. Scheduled to play at Tampa Bay and Bay Hill.

      He has a nice website at http://www.mikeweir.com

      Looks like he’s not wine making & course design, too. Maybe that’s a true passion of his? Since he won the Masters in 2003 (I think), he hasn’t made much noise, but he’s also gone through some injuries.

      He comes across as a nice guy with a crafty game. Nothing but good wishes go to him. I always like watching a good lefty, anyway.

    2. And yes to reading “Who’s Your Caddy”, no to “Sports From Hell”, I’ll check that out.
