Did they ever fine Tiger? If the PGA were smart they would institute a "DON'T FINE TIGER" policy.

Seriously if Tiger left the PGA and golfed on his own tour with whoever accepted his invites...it would be significantly more profitable than the PGA. He is literally bigger than the sport.

The collective putts that he's missed that he normally makes is bigger than Yang's single eagle. Tiger should be up 2-3 strokes.

if tiger played like tiger, then h would have finished at -10 easily. he had a bulky putter and couldn't catch a break. when he tried to hit cut shots they went straight and ended up 30 feet or more away from where he wanted the ball to end up. where as yang barely missed going down on the 16th and ends up with a 15 footer up the hill. just what i saw.

yang missed at least two putts barely short as well. bottom line yang won.yang did win. thats not what im arguing, im just saying tiger gave him the tournament. i know its not how, its how many in golf. but anyone who has seen golf in the last ten years knows tiger finishes and this was extremely odd in a major for him not to win after having the 54 hole lead( 9-0 in majors with a share of lead or better previous to today) he couldn't fade the ball which to me leads me to question if he knee is fully healthy. if he can't get onto his left side the ball won't fade.

it was great...you just don't make shots like that from that far away.

How clutch it was added to the greatness. He's two shots away from defeating the greatest golfer ever, he has a huge tree in his way, the wind is going the wrong way, so Yang has to hit a shot he isn't comfortable with, AND the pin is tucked away nicely in the back left with only feet of room to spare at all sides. Add to the fact that he was over 200 yards away and he had an uphill shot on the first cut, I don't think I've ever seen a shot quite like that.

I think Pebble and St. Andrews are going to be tough for a competitor to knock off Tiger, and Augusta, always depends on the year for Tiger. Whistling Straits wasn't the most favorable course in 2004 for Tiger and that has to do with his struggles off the tee, the course doesn't allow for many poor tee shots and control is key.

Tiger's putting is just off lately. He keeps burning the edge of the hole. He seems to like the way his putts go. His mechanics seem fine. He is just reading it a touch wrong. After several tournaments of this you would think he'd have it work out. I wonder if he'll win another tournament before the end of the season.

Well it looks like Tiger will be back in time for the Masters. With the way those people discriminate against anybody they don't like it should be a good way to ease back into playing again without a huge circus. He might still get a few non-golf questions but the big story will probably just be that he's returned at all.

I don't watch a ton of golf on TV but you can bet I'll be watching the Masters.

it looks like your standing too far away from the ball when you putt. you should be able to drop a ball from the bridge of your nose and it hit the ball( or inside of your target line. just from watching that putt you seem to be a fairly accomplished player( dont break your wrists, body is relatively quiet, kept your eyes down after contact with ball. but that tip will help you drain more putts from the 5-10 foot range, and help considerably with your lag putts.

trust me im well aware. every time i golf with every person i golf with they tell me the same thing but i putt better than any of them. no lie. putting is hands down the best part of my game and i know that my stance is all wrong. its just one of those things that im confident in and am afraid to change because i do it so well. i actually putted today in both stances to try and work on it but i still putted better standing back and hunching almost. my friends tell me i putt like an old lady. but they laugh cause it works somehow.

Is that the same for all putters you've tried? Maybe if you got the putter bent up by a couple degrees you could ease into a more upright stance.

Looks like Tiger will tee off Thursday at 1:42 pm with Matt Kuchar and KJ Choi...Who would have guessed he would be in the last or second to last pairing!! You had to know they would squeeze in as much tiger air time as possible.

Duval is in the last group with adam scott and ricky barnes. Hopefully duval plays well and we get to see a lot of him.

A few other pairings that look inriguing:
- Akim and Ernie Els
- Alvaro Quiros, Oliver Wilson, Dustin Johnson (talk about a talented young group)
- Mike Weir and Lee Westwood (one of these guys will make noise)
- Rory McIlroy and Camillo Villegas
- Fred Couples and Sergio Garcia (playing with a calm vet like Couples could really help Sergio)

I'm looking forward to The Open at St.Andrews. I don't like seeing golfers finish a major tournament at -16 or some insane number like that. I love The Open when the winner is not even always under par, where one single error on one hole can destroy your tournament, but where you're never really out of the race even if you're 8 strokes back in the fourth round.

My putting and short game was a big part of it. I was reading putts a lot better and my pitching and bump-and-run shots were more consistent. I wish I could say it's hard work paying off but honestly I haven't been practicing the short game that much.

I didn't hit many "great" shots, I just minimized my blow-up holes. In a normal round I will usually have a few holes where I hit a few out of bounds ( or pitch over the green, or 3 putt from 10 feet, or shank the ball 10 yards...) and rack up 10+ strokes. This time I just kept the ball in play and hit more consistently.

Couldnt be more true but with that said I think putting more than any other part of golf is a natural god given talent. You can take lessons to improve your grip, your swing, your drive, your iron play, your chipping, etc. but at the end of the day reading putts and gauging speed is all mental and you either know it or you dont a lot of the time.

If I am anything I'm a "feel" putter. I don't have a mechanical stroke with certain positions that I have to hit. When I try that stuff I can't settle down and I just get worse. I do my best putting if I can just relax, think about it for a second, and take a smooth stroke.

I am not good enough to help you out there, but it might help someone who can to know what your problem is. Do you hook or slice your drive? Does the ball go semi-straight and then hook/slice really hard, or does it hook/slice immediately?

I've been practicing hard at a local driving range as of late and one of the instructors there kept telling me to not fall back [slightly] following my stroke. Also, it'd be a good idea to distribute most of the power behind your swing through your body core/hips as opposed to your hands/arms. Last tip I could give you is to try to settle for a compact swing.

I have the same shot. If I try to swing out of my shoes it slices to the right. There are a ton of tips out there for fixing a slice as it is one of the most common problems people face. I haven't found the one that fixes my drive consistently, though.

I was say make sure you're getting your hands through. I'm guessing that your hips are coming through but your hands are just a tad behind and out of sync with your hips causing the club face to stay open and slice.

a couple things i always try to think before i swing my drive (used to have a wicked slice now just a slight fade thats very playable):

tuck the right leg back a bit but keep toes facing target (its almost as if your aiming right, helps me overcompensate and come over the ball)
right hand V of thumb and forefinger pointing at or just over right shoulder
stop at the top (half second or so)
slow swing, head down through impact, hands through impact

Tiger has made more clutch putts than anyone since Nicklaus for sure, and maybe a higher % than Jack.
I can remember US Open putts nobody else would make (ask Rocco Mediate).
I can remember clutch PGA Championship playoff putts nobody else would make (ask Bob May, if you can find him).
I can remember Ryder Cup putts, although he's been crappy in that event and I think our team plays better without him.
I can remember some unbelievable clutch putts in the President's Cup (ask Ernie Els).

And tons of them at the Masters in his wins there.

Now let me make this clear though so you don't think I am a Tiger fan or anything. I root against him always except in USA vs competitions. I love Mickeleson, can't stand Tiger. But if there is a putt that has to be made, I'd want him to take it, nobody else.

Mickelson chokes a lot of short putts that make me say bad words.

Rory's 62 yesterday was hands down one of the best rounds of golf I have seen in the past 10 years. The future of golf is here.
Meanwhile, here at the US Open, Rory Mac blows up and goes away quietly missing the cut, while his younger playing partner Ryo Ishikawa is tied for 2nd place and their old playing partner Tom Watson makes the cut.

Rory has tons of talent, but so does the youngster Ishikawa from Japan.
The other great young talent that's missing is Danny Lee. I thought he would develop into a star as early as these 2.

Nice job by the USGA making that one par 5 into 8's and 9's from great golfers like Zach Johnson, Ian Poulter, YE Yang, and Paul Casey.

The problem is Dustin Johnson is too far in front of him, plus Tiger and McDowell. Mickelson has put himself in a position now that he can't win. Even if he goes low like round 2, and fires a 66 as Tiger did yesterday, he won't win because someone of DJ, McDowell, or Woods will surely keep their lead on Phil.

I'm rooting for the bomber Dusin Johnson. He's a superstar in the making, he reminds me of Steven Strasburg. Ernie winning would be fine.

Tiger Woods -5 67

Phil Mickelson -1 69

It just seems like every time I watch it he fails at short putting. He's pretty damn good when it comes to long putts, though, I wouldn't even argue it. But his putting from around 5 feet has always been kinda weak when I've watched it. Then again I'm not that much of a huge golf fan and it could just be coincidental that I've mostly caught him looking not that good.

Allenby had been gearing up for this week’s World Golf Championship, followed by the final major of the year. He decided to take a weekend fishing trip in the Bahamas, then slipped on a wet spot on his boat and his legs went in different directions.

The Australian figured he hyperextended his knee. Tests revealed a torn ligament, and he had surgery Tuesday. Allenby, who is No. 14 in the world ranking, said doctors told him he should be able to return in time for the FedEx Cup playoffs in three weeks.

Tiger was terrible again today, now sits at 6-over par.
He looks lost out there.

Can a sore c**k really affect one's short game that much?

Saturday:

AKRON, Ohio -- After shooting his worst score ever at Firestone Country Club on Saturday, Tiger Woods is now in position to post his worst finish over 72 holes since his first tournament as a pro.

Woods struggled to a 5-over-par 75 during the third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Saturday morning, epitomized by a semi-shank on the final hole that led to a bogey.

The world's No. 1 golfer -- perhaps only for another day -- dropped his club in disgust and had to scramble for the bogey that still gave him his highest score in 47 professional rounds at Firestone.

For the second straight day, Woods, 34, declined to talk to reporters, but offered: ""talk to the leaders.'' He did offer a few comments to the media official as he walked to the clubhouse.

"Well, I drove it terrible, hit my irons terrible, didn't putt well and it added up to a lot,'' Woods said.

Asked if there was anything positive heading into next week's PGA Championship, Woods said: "No, not right now.''

Woods, who has been ranked No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking for 269 consecutive weeks dating to the 2005 season, can be surpassed by Phil Mickelson on Sunday. A victory by Mickelson would clinch his first rise to No. 1, but he could still ascend with a top 4 finish as long as Woods does not finish better than 45th.

"Well, if Phil plays the way he's supposed to this weekend, then he'll be No. 1,'' Woods said.

When he finished his round before noon Saturday, Woods was tied for 78th among the 80 players still in the tournament. He had never been worse than a tie for fourth here through 54 holes at a tournament he has won seven times. Woods has never finished worse than tied for fifth at Firestone.

And Mickelson..... his tee-shots are horrible, all over the place, sometimes in the fairway or rough of the hole parallel to the one he's on. They're as straight as Perez Hilton is.

Phil's game is just dreadful for this course and if he's spraying the ball off the tee, he better hope he ends up in the next fairway because the fescue rough is thick and pretty much a stroke penalty.

Golf rules you mean. And the rule is actually a good rule, but it was the ruling of the lay that was iffy. They had to distinguish between what a bunker is and isn't. To me, that wasn't a sand bunker but apparently I'm wrong.

They said it on the telecast repeatedly that the players were warned heavily about the local rules of this course, most specifically the bunkers...if there was any doubt in his mind he should've asked an official and i'll admit that i felt he was in a bunker when he went up to address the ball and it came as a surprise when the commenators were very unsure...i have walked this course before too so i'm not completely unaware of how the course layout is

Oh I agree, it was completely on him. He should have known beforehand, or his caddy should have, or he should have said something.

I'm just saying I wouldn't consider that a bunker, but I'm also not an expert or golf official. I will admit that I don't know nearly all the ins and outs of golf rules, however.

2011 Major Courses

Masters :: Augusta (of course) - Phil Mickelson
US Open :: Congressional - Ernie Els
British Open :: Royal St. George's - Ben Curtis
PGA Championship :: Atlanta Athletic Club - David Toms

Those are the venues for next year and the previous winners for the tournament at that course...I like most of these courses for Tiger to get back into the winner circle and I think we can expect to see Kaymer win another major in the not so distant future...this year, at least for the last three majors, was dominated by first time winners but I think next year we can expect the experienced and past winners to take center stage

The Dustin Johnson situation is unfortunate, and that course with all the pointless bunkers seemed a little silly. You never see spectators standing in a bunker with a player when he's about to take a shot at any other event. That said, Johnson and his caddy should've been more aware, the dumb rule was made known to everyone early and often.

Monty's captain's picks fuel alleged betting scam

The British will bet on anything: dart matches, political elections, whether Kate Winslet would cry when accepting an Oscar at the 2009 Academy Awards (8-15 odds called for waterworks). So perhaps it should come as no great surprise that Colin Montgomerie's captain's picks for the 2010 Ryder Cup have sparked a juicy gambling controversy in the UK. Seems an insider with knowledge of Monty's picks (which the captain will announce Sunday) may have already spilled the beans, according to James Corrigan of The Independent:

The Tour investigated and talked to the betting exchange Betfair. In the wake of that controversy, George O'Grady, the [European Tour] chief executive, said: "We can't really believe anybody in the committee room has used this information ... but we are appalled that someone inside that room has perhaps inadvertently leaked it. The entire committee is concerned to make sure that nothing like that ever has a chance of happening again."

Naturally this news has Britain's betting parlors on edge. It's no different than an insider-trading scam, like when a commodities broker gets early word about a crop report. (Just replace corn and jicama with Karlsson and Jiminez.) At writing, SkyBet has Padraig Harrington (1-10), Paul Casey (2-9), and Luke Donald (4-9) as the three favorites to earn one of Monty's selections, but if the leak is confirmed, all bets undoubtedly will be off.

This just in: Michelle Wie sucks

04/20: Local favorite Michelle Wie missed the cut for the third straight event, after her opening 78 with a 76. She had a quadruple-bogey 9 on the par-5 first -- her 10th hole of the round.

Wie also played poorly in no-cut events in Thailand and Singapore. Coming into this week, she was 119th in scoring average at 75.42 and had only one round in the 60s. Once one of the longest players in women's golf, Wie is 44th in driving distance (255 yards) and 137th in driving accuracy (43 percent).
