How does it make you all feel that Lucas Glover went from near the lead to the back of the pack?
Between #16 of round three and #4 of round four, he had a seven hole stretch where he was +9.
I am sure none of you were happy he had such a hard time, but it shows you it can happen to anyone. Even a Tour player in contention at a major golf event.
That bounce McDowell got on #18 of round three was very unfortunate.
I have a few thoughts on Tiger. IMO, that stack and tilt hybrid swing needs to go. That is putting pressure on his knee and Achilles. He needs to scrap all of this nonsense and go to the range and find a swing that doesn’t hurt. Even if it’s a swing that he has to hang back and throw his right hand at it. He wins with short game and he needs to get back to that and just find a swing that takes pressure off his knee…and “staying centered” is not that swing.
KJ Choi shows you can have a funky move, but be great with a swing that has great rhythm.
Graeme McDowell shows you can have a funky move and be great if you turn in sync.
DL III shows you can still play well into your 40’s if you wear really ugly pants that were sold at a yard sale in 1977.
I have hope that half of the first page of the leaderboard early on Sunday are guys that are the same age or older than me.
Toms was in a no win situation on 16…for the media and public. He hit a bad shot…big deal, happens all the time. Had he played safe and lost everyone would be criticizing him for being too conservative.
IMO, the percentage of trying to win always beats trying not to lose. In all sports. Laying up with a 1 shot lead on 16 would be like play a prevent defense up 3 points with 4 minutes left.
He did the right thing and hit a bad shot…BIG DEAL!!!!
