BOM Tiger style! My dawg is hungry and I just don't see anyone that can match his talent, under pressure, for a major.


Yea, Furyk has won an Open before. He's a grinder. No surprise him and Mcdowell are on top on a tough course like that.

McDowell has the most energy going into this last round. I still think Tiger can win it if he comes out on fire but he needs to stop coming up short and get aggressive.

Yep I agree with all of that. I knew Jim has won one major wasn't ure if it.was an.open, I just think he doesn't have the will or the skill to close it. Wouldn't be surprised of one of these who's that guys takes it.

Horribly.. sucks I was right about Furyk. He was the feel good pick kinda like old Watson at the British open. After tiger shot himself in the foot I told my step dad I'd like to see Web Simpson pull it off... Who the hell names their kid Web? Lol he had a great weekend: 4 under par for Sat and Sunday where most people in contention shot par or worse. I personally was hoping for a playoff or even better three player playoff. Glad USA kept the trophy for sure.. I also think tiger wins one of the remaining majors. Just a hunch

What movie is that last line from Atx? U got this?


I have absolutely no clue what movie.

Did anyone just see that 17 y/o golfers mom!? MILF!

Tin Cup.

Hot momma.

Furyk choked but was a way better bet than those other clowns.

El Tigre had an awesome swing once but it was very hard on his body - restricted hip turn yet past parallel with massive shoulder turn. Tough on both knees. I suspect he did roids. Tiger is one of the best putters ever - particularly on fast greens. To "Tiger-proof" a course slow it down.

Nicklaus reinvented his swing at least 3 times. His opponents were tougher mentally than the guys who have exploded when paired with Tiger.

Simpson backing in was weak. He almost looked ashamed.

Tiger's best shot will be the Masters. It is very fast and the field is acutally relatively weak compared to say the PGA. The US Open might nullify his length most years and the British is so much less about putting than the other 3.

I doubt Tiger gets to 18.

Four more in ten years? (the age Jack was when he won his last major) easy.
I think he wins one of the two this year then wouldn't be surprised if he went off and took two or more next year. It's tiger woods man... His new swing is coming along as will all hos game. He IS the best ever. He will torch all of jacks records like he has since he was a teen

It seems 4 out of 7 people thought one guy named Tiger had a better chance of winning than the field. That tells me something.

Tiger is the best of his era - easily. He dominated like no other.

His new swing is easier on his body and/but looser. It is less likely to hold up under pressure. Time will tell. Putting usually goes first. He might be one more injury away.

He also just tied jacks total won record while winning at two tough venues against the worlds best.

I think his weakest link is the pressure he puts on himself to win another major. It's not as easy as before but the talent is there. He easily could have shot a 68 or better on Friday and had the out right lead. Once he gets another one, it'll be down hill and he probably retires w 20 plus
