(I decided not to play in the Nationwide Qualifier today. Been practicing too much and not playing enough golf. Might have been able to qualify on a course that had no rough or slick greens, but would have been unprepared to make the cut.)
Charl Schwartzel. Only one word needed. Awesome.
I feel sorry for Rory McIlroy. I talked about only a complete meltdown would keep him from winning. Well…
Is there anyone out there that still wants to question that I know what I am talking about with Tiger’s game? I literally predicted EXACTLY what he would do all 4 days. Add to that 2 years of predicting how he wouldn’t win any majors and why.
Say what you will about my other predictions, but anyone who still questions my analysis of Tiger either hasn’t been paying attention or is in denial. I guess you can point to saying I didn’t think he would be a factor on the back 9 as being wrong, but I called every stage of his tournament on the dot.
He needs to forget perfecting a swing or listening to someone’s idea of how his swing should work and do nothing but work on chipping and putting, which is what made him great. He will not win any majors until he readopts this philosophy.
He basically played two good 9’s and the other 54 holes were pedestrian to awful. The good golf he played was when he started manufacturing whatever he could. That is his game.
I have one simple swing thought for Tiger…
Tiger, if you are going to pull off the ball just before impact to make room for you to hit it, why not just do it to start the downswing and you will release it better and be able to use your athleticism and talent to send the ball where you want to…hit a small bucket each day to find a rhythm, then go to the short game area the rest of the day.
