Meaning the girls in Vegas? Tiger is no Nicklaus or Watson. A real "no class" act that will self destruct again. He'll post some good scores but as a truly professional golfer he's toast and good riddance. IMO. I called his downfall years ago when I read in SI how he would toss anyone in his entourage that disagreed with him. I love the integrity and honor called for in the game of golf. I am disgusted with Tiger.

I saw Tiger's head drop and was thinking that maybe Charles Barkley was on to something?

 I didn't see much of it, but what I did see looked like he was enjoying the game.

I know I'm a bit blonde, but I must have missed the Charles Barkley thing.

Charles Barkley has the most......speechless......golf swing EVER.  Check it and you'll get the joke:

On a side note, nice to see Steve Williams caddied for Adam Scott's victory this weekend.  Sweet revenge, I'm sure.

Wow - Steve Williams is an amazing douche bag.  If he had any class he would've refused the interviews and deferred to Adam Scott, who, you know, actually swung the club and won the tournament.  History will reveal Williams as the bad guy in all of this.

post #36 of 49

Watching Adam Scott and Steve Williams work together on Sunday showed what a good caddie brings to a pro golfer. Scott has always had the talent, never had the focus of a really great  golfer. There were many close up shots of Williams working Scott in planning shots and I was impressed.

 

Then came the interviews......revenge may be sweet, but, learn to shut up and give credit the man who swings the stick.

Jay and LP, I couldn't agree with you more. I always liked Stevie, but after hearing the interviews I am beginning to wonder. The best thing for him to do was to go out and caddie for Adam and let that do the talking for them. The commentators praised the new found team all weekend, he didn't need to say anything else. That is what I would have liked to see anyways.   Dave

Those who play a big game don't need to talk a big game.  Obviously, Caddie Steve hasn't learned that yet.

Exactly, winning a few tourneys on the bag for Adam would be a perfect "I told you so" all by itself.

Stevie made more than Tiger did last weekend. Bwa hahaha. My favorite story. Get fired = get a raise!

post #41 of 49

O yeah. I agree about Steve needing a little more class. I think doing the interviews is ok. He did some when he caddied with Tiger and it was going to be hard to not do any with AS. But a spin doctor would have told him the right thing to say was:

I'm glad to see Tiger back, healthy and playing well.

We've all missed him.

I wish him a lot of second place finishes going forward.

Awesome dig right there, sort of joking but sort of serious.  That would have been a fantastic response and he would have certainly won some accolades for that, rather than turning people off.

I agree that Steve brought a lot to Tiger's game and IMHO he won a FEW tournaments for him, but Tiger still had to swing the sticks but Steve helped Tiger stay focused and he will do the same for Adam. Steve forgets that he is where he is BECAUSE of Tiger otherwise he would have been just another caddy. I simple "I enjoyed the opportunity" would have sufficed, but Steve sure put the "ass" in class.

No, he didn't.  Tiger's tournament winnings, while huge, were always a small part of his income.

It's a fine line on the PGA Tour. Tiger played competitive  golf at Firestone and you would have to say all things considered the result was encouraging. But to win, he has to play 4 pretty much flawless rounds. I don't think with the new swing , the rust, and all the other Tiger distractions that is very probable right now.

 

If he comes back and starts winning again it will be very impressive. I think his game has slipped with the injuries the layoff and the fact he is playing golf swing instead of golf much of the time. That makes it awful hard to beat a field of the best in the world and guys that from week to week are in the zone that Tiger once dominated in. All that being said, if anybody can do it it would be him.

 

It will be intersting to watch . I think Nicklaus 's 18 majors are safe for the time being.

post #46 of 49

To me the most bazaar thing to watch is the lack of confidence Tiger appears to have with the putter in his hands. He used to be lethal with the flat stick, especially when the money was on the line. He has to get that and his wedge play back before he can contend. I think soon enough he will put it all together, maybe it is just wishful thinking but that is my .02

There - fixed it.

post #48 of 49

This nails it.  I think he's putting his swing together and is showing encouraging results, but it takes some time before you can stop thinking about it and just play.

 

My guess, Tiger either never wins another major again or he breaks Nicklaus' 18 mark.  I don't see him only winning one or two more.

His ability to get up and down won him more tournament than anything else(IMO). When or if he gets that ability back will determine whether or not he contends in and or wins majors. I think it will be a matter of time  but he will do it. He has too much pride and stubbornness not to, I think anyways.
