For all you Tiger Woods lovers!  (Dave_1 especially) whom dont want to miss a single shot, a single fixing shirt sleeve before putting moment, seeing his babe following him around etc.

 

As part of its coverage of the event, ESPN3 will offer a live feed following Woods for the entirety of every round he plays.

Thats a bit sad
I guess they have done the research, which means the audience is also a bit sad IMHO :)

Isn't the normal coverage Tiger Woods only?

Why can't foxtel do a press red for tiger and don't show him on any other Chanel unless he's tearing it up ...if he's tearing it up I'm happy to watch it.....

But if he's struggling and others are playing well and we don't see them that's when I get annoyed

What is the comparison between past winning tiger scores vs current scoring and considering course upgrades? Has the opposition got better? Not just at open but last 12 mths worth of majors?

quite a question xmx...I'll leave it to some of the tiger-lovers to give you more detail but Hoylake/2006 was his last Open win.  The memorable thing about the 2-shot victory was his course management.  He only used driver once in the tournament and only went into 3 of those bunkers.

 

Hoylake has only been lengthened 84yards since 2006 - nothing really.

 

But...remember Tiger won 5 tournaments last year.  A lot of players don't win that in an entire career.  Tiger is far from finished but he really does need more time on the course before he starts winning on he course again.

 

I wonder how interested he is in getting into the Fedex playoffs this year. He is currently 212th with 43points.  One win @ 500pts will move him to 85th which is enough to get him into at least the first playoff.

watson says he wants Tiger in Fedex or may not pick him for Ryder Cup!
