    Re: Tigers back.

    Tiger's not swinging at 129mph. A known Trackman issue where it gives incorrect reads on the new TM drivers apparently, something to do with the shape. His SS went up 8mph from Friday but ball speed and distance remained the same. Dud numbers.

    Re: Tigers back.

    Really good to see he appears not just over his injuries but able to be competitive, long may it continue

    The media hype will undoubtedly annoy folks who arenít fans of his and thatís understandable (no diff to fans of footie teams the world over that donít get the coverage of the big boys or any other sport) and we are talking about the US media too, so itís all going to be kicked up a notch or 8 on the silliness scale

    Iím sure itíll calm down a tad the longer he stays fit and hopefully the on course fans calm down a bit too because shouting/cheering on his downswing seemed like the norm on Sunday, and if/when he can get a win itíll spike to lunacy levels
    (but in our golfing world his Ďjourney backí is a huge huge (positive?) story that can transcend to fans of other sports and not much in golf can do that)

    Some might benefit from a single minded media as the Masters hypes up with a little scrutiny lifted off Roryís shoulders which wonít do him any harm while others might miss out a bit with Sergio not getting quite the recognition the current champion might otherwise get

    Overall though I donít think Tigerís game benefits in any way from this level of acute media/fan attention so I suppose heís the real one losing out

    Ok, I'll accept that
    So why doesn't the PGA and all the other media outlets know about it?
    Because they were all over it, headline news, fastest swings of the week......
    Doesn't anyone else use the TM drivers?
    Wouldn't they have got similar readings?

    Just another example of the hype going hyperspace because it's Tiger...

    He is not the Messiah!

    I'd expect him to be very much in contention, nobody knows that place better, 8 wins there over the years so definitely a course he likes and has good memories from
