Default ISH Official PGA Tour Thread

I was just gonna make a thread about Tiger's start to the season but then I thought fuck it why not a whole thread about the PGA. I'm not sure how many of you guys follow golf but maybe throughout the season we can get some good conversation going.

So the Farmer's Insurance Open started today which is big because it's Tiger's start to the 2011 season. He's got his new swing, and supposed health. I have to say his swing looks.... just efficient. It doesn't seem to have the bite that it used to but he's -3 through I think 15.

My players to watch this tournament are obviously Tiger, and then Anthony Kim who was just a beast at the beginning of last year but then was injured. So far though he seems to be back to form. And Ricky Fowler, he had a nice little season last year in his first full year.

There's the Tiger explosion. I was waiting for that.

They couldn't get on the bleep button fast enough.

Tiger was so inconsistent off the tee today. But he still put together a nice round. I thought he had that eagle putt on 18 which would have been bad for the field I think because we know he carries momentum well.

But damn Anthony Kim has some serious game.

Ben Haas your clubhouse leader at -11.

Which brings me to another point. I know they're playing both courses but even on the South Course they're going low. I know it's not at Open Conditions but... still it's Torrey Pines.

Good for Bubba. But Phil made it pretty damn interesting! Good tourny.

Tiger had a nice club throw today when he hit his drive and it ended up behind the tree.

There probably isn't enough interest to keep this thread on the front page after the Masters is over.

Last months issue of Golf Digest had an interesting article about Tiger and his swing changes. They showed his top of the backswing positions at different times in his career and the differences were dramatic.

I thought that his swing during his Slam run back in 2000 was close to perfect. Apparently part of that swing was a dramatic straightening of his left knee through impact and apparently he felt that was a big cause of his knee problems. When he worked with Haney after dumping Butch it was a big issue for Tiger to try to take the stress off his knee because he said he had only "20% of my ACL left".

Don't want to totally derail this thread, but was wondering if you could elaborate on Tiger's work ethic? How many hours a day do you think he focuses on his game and tries to improve?

Now, here is the Masters week.

Who should I pick for my fantasy team? Tiger again? Phil? or a bunch of top Europeans?

Bunch of the top Europeans. Euros are taking over the game.

Then again, I pick both guys in my fantasy, so GO BOTH!!

I think his intimidation factor is gone a little bit because he isn't the player he was 3 or 4 years ago. Now we are talking about Woods having a great golf swing on the practice range instead of a great swing on the course.

Rory had a great round but something just feels wrong about it all. Like... I don't look at him right now and think: "Oh yeah he can win this whole thing."

Idk what's missing from him for me. BUT he strings together a couple more rounds he def has the talent.

This has to be one of the most impressive 1st rounds I've seen in a while. Not sure why but seems like every other shot is a highlight.

How about the last group with the way Woodland finished and Quiros. How come Rory is getting all the talk and Quiros is getting no love?
