Tiger looking extremely good in his practice round with Phil and Freddie Couples. He's had 2 eagles already.
3 if you count yesterday's chip in at #2
It was a great chip, but blown a little out of proportion. He drove it into the fairway bunker, and pulled it out of there before hitting over the green.

I will confess, I read the "failing" New York Times. It's very good reporting and shit but they don't know jack about a) popular music 2) sports. Their blind spots in these areas are laughable. Here is a perfect example.

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/06/opin ... ament.html

I'm not really trying to single out the NYT actually, but rather the whole current narrative about Tiger, that he's human now, no longer a soulless robot. He has matured. Now he acknowledges his fans. Now he looks happy on the course.

Motherfuckers are projecting. Seeing what they want to see to reinforce their precious narrative. Tiger was always human. I don't know about you people, but I always saw it. Was the guy ever not appreciative of the support he receives? I've been reading his blog since the mid-00s, and he has always expressed appreciation. And aside from those periods of trying to play through back pain, Tiger has always seemed like he was having the time of his life out there. That is why people watch. The guy lives to compete and it comes through the TV screen.

Tiger been struggling in major championships for a long time now, going back to YE Yang. Now, he is picking up where he left off. He should feel fortunate for the opportunity the bastid.

I am looking forward to this week's "U.S. Open" (of golf). I was going to make a thread about it but let's face it, I am really just hyped for Tiger Woods. Ok so based on current form he will probably have an indifferent round 1 followed by a sharp round 2 followed by a half-good, half-bad weekend play, eventually finishing T21 or whatever. So what. This is the normal now. Just being "appreciative" to watch the guy play and swing fast and all that shit. Yeah that's right. Us Tiger fans have now become sad losers. Not even really hoping for wins, just respectable showings. Don't be so quick to condemn. There will come a day when Rickie has gotten old and sad too. Your time is coming, quicker than you think.

Obviously, I'm rooting hard for Tiger, but this week, if it's not in the cards for him---and I know this will grind your gears Beef---but, I really want Phil to get a US Open on his resume. Were it not for Tiger, he would have been the best of the era to play the game. Frankly, I feel his accomplishments should be more recognized, since there are very few who have reached that level, ever. He has been overshadowed by the big cat his entire career and at this point in his life, I want to see a great ending to a HOF career. And nothing would be more fitting than to do so at Shinnecock, where he got a bad break in '04 at the Open on Sunday afternoon. 17th hole in a greenside bunker, with a very likely shot at winning, but ultimately ended up 2nd to Goosen as a result of a stone behind the ball in the bunker. And he didn't complain when asked about it. In fact he never mentioned it. Instead his response was, "I shouldn't have hit it in there in the first place."

If it comes down to Tiger and Phil on Sunday though, I'm rooting Tiger.

That's right Doug. Just say no. To Phil. Is what I say. That guy paid almost a million bucks back to the feds. No standup person that I know has ever had to do such a thing. And I am willing to bet that was the result of them being lenient with him. Pickleson.
