    Woods is Changing Things up for the British Open



    He's got a new putter. Yeah, he's dumping the putter that he has used since 1999 and going with a Nike putter.

    What are his chances at the British Open?

    hard to believe woos is favored to win
    i'll take the field
    I realise that I have a past to break with--an accumulation of inertia, wrong, foolishness, rot, junk. A great need of clarification, of mindfulness, or rather, of no mind. A need to return to genuine practice, right effort. Need to push on the great doubt. Need for the spirit. Hang on to the clear light.

    Yea he only destroyed the field the last time the Open was at St. Andrews and has finished top 20 in all the majors this year.Plus the fact having Tiger as the favorite is like having the Yankees as the favorite to spur betting from fans of theirs.What are those bookies thinking?

    Man, it sure looks like that course must have been playing easy yesterday. Tons of low scores.

    Daly was -6 yesterday? Holy shit. I bet he has at least one round in the 80's before its over.

    Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie rumored to be suing a tabloid getting ready to publish pictures of him-"Rumor is full on gimp mask, rubber ball in the mouth, whips, dog collar and dominatrix.".Yut Oh.

    Also Tiger should make the Ryder cup as a captains pick.I don't care how bad he's playing.

    Re: Woods is Changing Things up for the British Open



    Brutal way to miss out on a playoff yesterday for Johnson.It would have been nuts if he sunk that putt on 18 and thought he won it.At first I was thinking he got screwed but when they showed the place he hit from and ground the club it was pretty obvious it was sand and sand usually indicates a bunker.His caddy has to be on top of that shit.Theres a rules official following every group so its not that hard to ask for a ruling.Pretty dumb way to cost yourself a major.

    Tiger has finished top 30 in all the majors.For as bad as he looks right now some players would kill for those results.It might take two years but he will win another major and then it will be back to dominance for him.

    I'm not so sure I agree on that ruling and yeah it would have been much more interesting had he sunk that putt on 18 for the outright win.

    I saw the tape of where he hit too, and it in no way resembled a bunker. Looked more like a place the crowd had walked down and maybe they had spread some sand for maintenance purposes.

    I heard the guy interviewed and he said that the thought of that being a bunker or even considered sand NEVER crossed his mind. Not once. He said he just never considered it. They asked why he didn't get a ruling and he repeated that he never considered it to be a bunker, just looked like a place the crowd had walked down.

    I would venture to say, if that hadn't been the PGA, and had been the British or US Open, they wouldn't have given a ruling like that. Or had a place that could trick a person like that. I think they went out of their way to show an example of how a true "PGA" type player has to follow the rules to the letter.

    But kudos to how well he took it. He didn't act pissed about it. In fact he even joked that he is glad now that he missed the putt.

    I also wonder if he had made the putt, if it would have changed how the last two approached that last hole.

    Thats a bunker.


    I know youre thinking well then its a waste bunker and you can ground your club in a waste bunker.The PGA hung signs in the locker room all week stating there were no waste bunkers at all on the entire course.All sand inside and outside the ropes was a hazard meaning no grounding the club.

    He played it too fast.Its the final hole of a major and you have the lead.He took no longer then 2 minutes to clear the crowd and swing.Caddie and he were sprinting to the clubhouse cause they thought they had it.He cost himself a million dollars in prize money.

    He was in the last group.Him and Watney who blew up and shot an 80 something.The two guys who ended up in the playoff were on the practice tee hitting balls.

    It would have been an all timer if he hit that putt to "win" it and celebrates thinking he won a major.So embarrassing.I think he would have handled it a lot worse if they told him on the 18th green he didnt win it.

    oh shit, that picture makes it obvious. it looks just like a bunker that hasn't been maintained. I guess during the tournament with the crowd standing around it wasn't as obvious as it is there. yeah, they got it right.
