Tiger Woods


Recommended Posts

Is anyone surprised he's doing well at the Buick? He knows this course inside and out. He always does well. That said, he's got a 1 stroke lead. Love seeing the Tiger apologists going nuts in here.

I realize that tiger has very high expectations of himself, bu he is a first class ##### when he plays poorly. Throwing his clubs, cursing, visibly frustrated, swinging at he ground etc. It's pretty lame IMO. I don't relly see anyone else out there doing that kinda stuff.

because we don't get to see every shot from anyone else

2009 Golfer of the Year well on his way to adding another trophy.

Has anyone ever won Golfer of the Year without winning a major?
T. Woods 2003. I assume more but he was the first I came across.

It really isn't confusing. Finless is fishing - facts don't matter.

Well then, he certainly has a chance. :shrug: He's been playing great in these lesser tournaments.

8 wins out of 15 starts (53.3 win%) in 2006.7 wins out of 16 starts (43.8 win%) in 2007.8 wins out of 17 starts (47.1 win%) in 2008 and 2009 combined.

It has really skewed the way the average fan looks at the game. If someone just got privy to golf in the last 4 years....they are gonna habe a rough rest of their life. They are gonna wonder why nobody wins as much as tiger.69 victories...that is just gross

He clearly peaked in 2006 and has been on the decline since./finless

Did I just hear tiger or his caddy fart on the 18th fairway while waiting? He busted up laughing afterwards.

No way - I saw them laughing - can you really hear it? If so that would be awesome (seriously).
Yes! Could have been someone in the crowd I suppose, but it was pretty loud.

I am positive I heard a huge fart while they stood there. Anybody tivo it?

I'm only with my blackberry so I have no means of looking for a clip.

Pretty obvious imo

:lmao:

The below statements are just sick. From this link:

He moved into first place in the FedEx Cup standings and padded his lead on the money list with another $918,000 after tying Vijay Singh's record of three Buick Open titles.

With the 69 wins, he trails just Jack Nicklaus (73) and Sam Snead (82).

Woods reached victory No. 69 at the age 33 years, 7 seven months -- almost seven years quicker than Nicklaus and eight years sooner than Snead.

Dating to the 2006 British Open, Woods has won 21 of 39 starts on the PGA Tour.

deadspin has a post up about it now with some video.

The alleged "Tiger Woods farting" video is making its way around the blogosphere, yet everyone may be too quick to blame Eldrick for this mighty rip during the Buick Open.Unless CBS had a special microphone right next to his ###, it doesn't seem plausible that Woods could be the culprit. Yes, just a few seconds before blast-off, we see Woods loosening his hamstrings by kicking his legs up behind him, followed by the alleged fart, then a shot of he and caddy Steve Williams chuckling, but this is all circumstantial and hardly implicates Tiger.If that strange splattery noise heard was, in fact, a purposeful release, it must have come from inside CBS' studio, where Jim Nantz and David Feherty were commentating. If so, this is Nantz's second brush with a noisy sphincter on-air in the same calendar year, which, to me, makes him the prime suspect once again.Tiger Woods Releases Some Gas On The Way To Buick Open Victory [TPS]

Wasn't this basically a JV tournament? On Mike and Mike this morning they said something along the lines of there not being a single player in the world top 100 that played in this thing other than Tiger.

While Tiger winning this thing is somewhat impressive, it's about the same level of achievement as an NFL team beating the Detroit Lions last year.

Just looking at the leaderboard, I see some familiar names like Justin Leonard (World #32), Jim Furyk (World #10), Chad Campbell (World #55), Rory Sabbatini (World #38), Stuart Appleby, Rocco Mediate, Paul Goydos (World #68), and John Senden (World #89).

considering 100 or so signed up and the tour card pretty much means you are at least top 200 material I don't think I even have to look. Maybe top 10?

He improved to 36-1 when he has the outright lead after 54 holes. Woods has four wins this season—twice as many as anyone else on the PGA Tour—in just 11 starts since returning from knee surgery.

He moved into first place in the FedEx Cup standings and padded his lead on the money list with another $918,000 after tying Vijay Singh’s record of three Buick Open titles.

With the 69 wins, he trails just Jack Nicklaus (73) and Sam Snead (82).

Woods reached victory No. 69 at the age 33 years, 7 seven months—almost seven years quicker than Nicklaus and eight years sooner than Snead.

He said the growing collection of trophies is “all over the place,” including his house and his mother’s.

Since the 2006 British Open, Woods has won 21 of 39 starts on the PGA Tour.

Woods, playing for the first time since missing the cut at the British Open in July, got off to a brutal start at the Buick Open. He shot a 71 in the first round and said it was probably the worst putting performance of his career, leading to him skipping his post-round practice session because he was so mad.

It only added to his legacy because he went from a tie for 95th to a victory, the largest jump he’s made from the first round in a tournament he ended up winning.

Woods roared back into contention with the best five-hole start of his career—beginning 6 under in the second round—en route to a 9-under 63 for his best score in relation to par in four years. His 65 in the third round gave him a one-shot lead into Sunday.

The three-shot victory was his most lopsided since winning the 2008 Buick Invitational by eight.

“He’s just laughing at all of us,” Letzig said. “I wish he’d stop coming to the tournaments I’m coming to. Seriously, though, I love it.”

Pulled up the new rankings, eh? Because I noticed Senden (the only one who was ever in contention; Sabbatini's late run was too little too late) moved up 18 spots. None of the names you quoted who are top 100 were ever within a country mile of challenging for the win.

At the beginning of the coverage CBS put up these numbers in a graphic:

Official World Golf Rankings

Top of the Leaderboard

Tiger Woods 1

Michael Letzig 200

John Senden 107

Matt Bettencourt 119

Vaughn Taylor 319

Charles Warren 343

Greg Chalmers 251

Jimmy Walker 582

That would be a stout field for the Nationwide Tour.

Anyway, nice win for Tiger, and glad to see him support the Buick in its last edition (51 years and now its gone). They are no longer his sponsor, and Warwick Hills needed him a lot more than vice versa - kudos for showing some loyalty.

Should win this week since he often dominates at Firestone; can't wait for the PGA, hoping he gets number 15.

Yea, you're right, it was top 10.
