I'm surprised Rory won't be there. Thought him and Tigs were bff's.

Apparently his tee to green was good but his chipping needs a lot of work.

He left one in green side bunker too.

I hear he has a new "swing adviser". Should we prepare for a couple years of "I'm close. It's a process"?
Tiger HAD a killer short game. Not sure if it was Foley that convinced Tiger to change that or just Tiger being Tiger. All the talk of his driving, frankly the biggest reason for Tiger's "slump" is his wedges and putter.

I agree completely.

4 chunked chip shots yesterday and a fatty that failed to leave a bunker. What ever happened to Earl's famous philosophy of starting at the hole and working your way back? Tiger used to say that the last club he worked on was his driver.

I always find after a lay-off the hardest thing to get back into is the finesse shots involved in the short game. He'll be back, I have no doubt. And I don't say that as a Tiger lover. I don't hate him either. Just thing that a fit Tiger, free from pain is a dangerous Tiger. He's too good to write off already.

Agree. Still his wedge game while with Foley wasn't what it was.
