    A pissed off guy playing golf, just steaming, and getting madder with every shot. Finally he explodes, picks up his golf bag,and hurls it into a pond, cursing all the while he storms off to his car. A few minutes later, looking kind of embarrassed, he returns, wades out, finds his golf bag and drags it back onto the grass. He unzips the ball pocket, pulls out his keys, flings the golf bag into the pond and goes back to his car.

    Sounds like Finebaum caller Larry from Shelbyville County. He talks about getting in a fistfight on the golf course

    Tiger's swing looked great. His short game was going to be rusty; you cant replicate some things in your back yard. If he can stay pain-free he will definitely be in tournaments, which is pretty impressive since most didnt think he would play again.

    He played well for the first 2 rounds. I think he was probably feeling some back pain for the last 2. We all know he's not going to play even as many events as he has in the past and will choose his spots in preparation for the majors but to actually win he might have to gut it out the way he did in the 2009 US Open. The question is can he?

    Im also curious what his schedule will look like. Im sure it will be similar, but will cut out overseas trips like Dubai and will skip maybe a Florida swing tournament and a few others.

    Glad to hear he said he is pain free for the first time in years because of the back fusion and the doctors said it should last for his playing career (the fusion). He said he has a ton of stiffness which is expected and who knows if his knees will hold up. But being pain free in the back at least allows him to get through the ball which is why his driver looked much better. Nice to see what he looks like as a normal-ish golfer for the first time in four years.

    I would expect him to play tournaments on courses he really likes. The event at Torrey Pines, the LA stop at Riviera, Arnie's tourney at Bay Hill and probably a couple of others depending on how he's playing.

    Agree but he needs to do a couple of things. 1. He needs to play more, if that is courses that he likes that is fine but he needs to play more. 2. Probably most important is he needs to get a grip on reality and I'm not sure that he can. @tigerbait3 makes great points about his health and especially his knees and back. Him driving it well in the Hero might be the worst thing that could have happened to him. If he continues to try and bomb it with the young bucks to 340 he won't finish the season.

    I just hope he doesn't end ip making a sad spectacle of himself like when Michael Jordan played for the Wizards.
