Tiger Woods anyone?

Is this guy amazing or what? 7th straight in a row, he just doesn't lose when he plays.

He always starts off alright, and not in the lead, but in the clutch he always pulls it off. It almost feels like he toys with the competition for a bit, and in the end he just turns it up outta nowhere.

It's just amazing to watch Tiger and Federer dominate their sports the way they do. Respect!

Re: Tiger Woods anyone?

They showed the stat where Tiger has won 54 tournaments and every other guy in the top 5 or so had won 1 or 0. It's just not fair. They all feel the pressure, but Tiger is just out there playing a round with his buddies. No pressure felt at all. He is unbelievable. It is almost like watching Pro Wresling. You know who is going to win.

He doesn't start slow he just basically plays the same round four times in a row. No one else seems to be able to put together 4 quality rounds. The only people who compete are those who shoot one great round, 2 ok rounds and an average round.

Re: Tiger Woods anyone?

The amazing thing is that two years ago people were saying that his best days were behind him, that he would never match the tiger slam, that he couldnt win without Butch Harmon, that his wife was too hot and too distracting, that he didn't have the same drive as Vijay or Phil, and that the competition had caught up to him by training harder.

I am biased because I am a Tiger fanatic, but I always contended these positions were ridiculous. The thing about Tiger during that two year stretch where he didn't win a tournament was, he played absolutely terrible and still contended. He was spraying balls all over the fairway and still finishing in the top 10 at majors. Even in 05 when he won the masters and british, he didnt really play that well - he just grinded people out. Then last year after taking that time off it seems like everything clicked in terms of implementing hank haney's methods. Now he is, dare we say it, better than he has ever been. We are so lucky to be watching one of the greatest athletes ever in his prime.

And his short game is amazing, especially on the green.

Re: Tiger Woods anyone?

I vaguely followed the tourney this weekend, saw he was in contention going into the weekend, and said, eh, he'll win.

If Tiger is within 5-8 strokes going into the 3rd round, he'll be in contention on Sunday. He's simply amazing when it comes to playing on his game in the clutch.

Re: Tiger Woods anyone?

I must say the guy is probably the best to ever play the game. He just has talent and the drive to win which is unmatchable amongst his competitors. The best thing is that he does it with CLASS. Kudos to Tiger.

Re: Tiger Woods anyone?

They say in golf that you hit your "Prime" is right around age 30; which Tiger JUST TURNED. Which is a pretty scary thought to say the least.

In addition, when he started working with Butch Harmon, it took him about 28 months or so to perfect his swing. After he stopped working with Harmon, and had a new teacher, it was about 28 months until the Brittish Open last year, where he started going on this tear, so maybe it took that long again.

it's a combination of things...he is that damn good. He's one of the best golfers ever, bar none. So you have that, and then in the intimidation of knowing you are playing in a 2-some on the final day with a guy who is not only the best out there today, but knowing that he's clutch when behind and the lead is within reach...

Exactly. He's ridiculous, no doubt. But, all the other golfers are SO intimidated by him they can't play their best. They may not think about losing consciously, but sub-consciously they know they don't stand a chance.

I really think he simply is so consistent that it is so hard to compete. He can go out and blow people away one round but really what he does is consistently shoot 64-67 whereas it seems even the other good players can shoot 64-67 three rounds and 70-72 for one. Somehow he seems to really avoid rounds that take him out of contention.

And I do think the other are intimidated. Think about it. You're leading after 2 rounds but Tiger is 3 or 4 strokes back. Now you know he going to go 66-67 at the worst the next two rounds so you're thinking I can't shoot worse than 68 once or he's right on my ass. Next thing you know you're pushing a little. Then you hear a roar from up ahead and see the leaderboard change and Tiger move up. Now you're just about the crap your pants because what you KNEW was going to happen is happening. Even the best know he is going to push them and no one seems to know what the hell to do when they HAVE to get it done. He is so relentless.
