Just watched highlights of his Deutsche Bank win in 2006 over Vijay, on one hole he hits a 189 yard six-iron to within 10 feet, very next hole he uses the same club from 150 yards. Nobody on tour today has that ability, and it's what made/makes him so exciting to watch.
I will defend Tiger's game, but I completely disagree with this statement. Good players, including amateurs, can hit clubs various distances.
Tiger's game inside 100 yards is what made Tiger what he was. He was never an accurate of the driver of the ball, but you had the feeling that inside 100 yards he was going to get up and down. As of late, his wedge game and putting has been abysmal by touring pro's standards, let alone Tiger's.
That being said, he will be back, but just not as dominant as he used to be, and the record for most majors (which once seemed like only a matter of time for tiger) has actually become a legitimate question mark.
Give Tiger some time. He is finally healthy so he can actually practice effectively now. Will he be as dominant as he once was? Hell no, theres to many other good players. Can he regain his consistency? No problem.
Look at the masters the last 2 years, if he had of putted half decent he would have won them both, no problem.
Tiger has looked pretty decent his last two times out, finished in third at the Australian Open, but like many of his tournaments this year he threw a win away in the third round shooting 75. Still he was right there on Sunday even with a terrible round in the mix.
Putted very well at the Presidents Cup too, played better than his record indicated.
He's slowly starting to improve, but the young kids have taken over the game.
Meh, they're all still terribly inconsistent. McIlroy only won once after his U.S. Open win, and his play was up and down. Guys like Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Keegan Bradley, etc are all very talented and could have bright futures but who knows.
He's ****** the course right now. He has a slim possibility at 59 right now.
Yesterday was a tiger of old day, 6-under on the par 5s. Frankly that is where tiger won so many of his tournaments. On courses with 4 par 5's, tiger pretty much started each round at least 4-under. I've never seen a player dominate par 5's like tiger did.
