Tiger goes into the weekend four off the lead held by Beau Hossler. Who? Exactly. I actually like his chances now. Get out there Doug.

I don't know. He's got a lot of people in front of him still, and it's a veritable who's who of who the fuck are these people?

Leaderboard is now topped by Hossler and a Gay with Tiger only three back. If he does not get it done this week, against this meek field, I will be disappoint.

Molinari's ballstriking was unbelievable. He deserved the win, hands down. 8 or 9 strokes ahead of 2nd place. Yet, Tiger hit the ball extremely well too. If he made all those putts that lipped out, he would have finished a close second. A T4 finish, while having nearly the worst putting stats in the field, is pretty impressive. If he can find his putting stroke, I am confident he will win soon.

Me too. I checked out his stats. Nothing really sticks out. He is playing consistently solid and not winning, like f'n Paul Casey pre 2018, or something. Most importantly seems to be enjoying himself out there. That is the real name of the game, jack.

He was last in the field putting from inside 10'. But his was 7th in the field strokes gained putting. So if I had to guess he was 1st or 2nd in the field putting from outside 10'.

His short range putting was just bad most of them I saw missed left (I only watched on Sunday). When I'm missing short putts left it's because I start shutting it down with my right hand which is my "yipp" move. It took me 4-5 years to loose that feeling, hopefully he can do it in less than a week.

I have a good feeling about The Open and Tiger. I'd have an even better feeling if he did some serious pre-tournament recon. Personally, I think he should take his two kids for a two-week vacation over to Scotland and do some sight-seeing, feel good about the fam.....and play 8 or 9 rounds of golf at all different times of day, at Carnoustie while he's there. Putt those greens from every possible angle. Make great notes. It's not like he doesn't have a nice jet of his own to get there or enough money to pay for the finest hotels. Hell, bring LaCava over too. He can map the greens out and help develop a solid game plan. Being there before the rest of the Tour gets there could be a real advantage. What else has he got to do? Stay home and practice in his backyard on Bermuda? C'mon Tiger. Take the bull by the horns and get serious. You're better than they are. Prove it.

Yeah that would help. But if I were him, I think it would be best to slow down his back yard green to a 6 or 7 on the stimp meter. Then putt until he's made 100 3' putts in a row. The move to 5' and make 50 in a row.

If he is over using his right hand and shutting it down on short puts. Slow greens will make that even worse because his brain will tell him he needs to hit it harder. So really slowing them down and forcing yourself to work through that crap will be best. The bad news is that British Open greens are generally on the slower side to defend against the wind, so unless he puts in a lot of work I don't see this problem fixing itself in 2 weeks.
