It will be interesting to see if he defends his PGA title in Tulsa in May. The writer he made the comments too is supposedly releasing his tell all book the week of the PGA.

Maybe I missed the whole thing, but what did he do to get suspended.

Not official he's been suspended (PGA won't confirm). He made comments to a golf writer back in November (which came out in February). He was commenting on a new league that's trying to get off the ground that is backed by the Saudis. He was very critical of the PGA and just came across as an ego, money driven ass.

Based on a few other tour players responses regarding Phil's comments to the golf writer (Alan Shipnuck), the fans are seeing what tour players have been seeing about Phil behind closed doors for a long time.

I always thought PM was David Sims.  Now I know I'm right.

The first thing we're gonna do is we're gonna acknowledge that this guy is awesome.  I mean he shoots Theo Tonin;  fakes his own death in a spectacular fashion;  pushes a guy out of an airplane while he's flyin' it;  parachutes into Harlan County with enough coke and cash to jumpstart the economy of a small country;  then he has the balls to get a job in law enforcement - not once but two times;  he spends a couple days ridin' around with you - while you're lookin' for him;  and now he's run off with a hooker that's half his age.  That's some badass shit.

Yes.   And what no one has said publicly is that maybe he's in hiding due to saying exactly that.  So he doesn't become another Khashoggi.

I'm not apologizing for Phil but he was spot on in his comments. The PGA is no different than any other league. The hide behind antitrust all the way to the bank. Players and yes, I know a few, have been bitching about it for years. They were just smart enough not do it to a reporter or suggest business with the arabs.

I was there.  My first trip to Augusta.  What a day!

Felt horrible for Stone but Davis had a great round and became another great lefty champion on the hallowed grounds. 

Annika was there to console Stone afterward.  Very cool to see.

maybe it's not a "game time decision" after all

Good grief.   All that’s missing is a money shot.

no possible way eldrick can march up and down those hills at the national for 4 daze and compete. Hell, he could barely walk from his cart to the greens and tee boxes  at the father son tourney on a flat, Florida course. unless you’ve been there, you haven’t a clue how hilly and steep the 18 holes at Augusta national are - brutal.

doubtful he even makes the cut

Exactly.  Even the “downhill” holes aren’t easy because so many go so drastically FAR downhill on the fairways that they have to come back up to the greens.  So there’s climbing involved almost every single hole.  And the nature of his injury with compromised ankle flexion will exaggerate the feel of those climbs even more.

He'll start anyway. If he starts playing like shit he'll withdraw due to pain. If he's actually in contention he'll hobble around loaded up on pain killers.

Tv talking heads asking if tiger can win. They ought to be asking if tiger finishes the first two rounds.

Odds he withdraws due to pain (aka playing like shit) Friday or Saturday?

I'll say 2:1

Tiger would not be playing if he didn't think he could win, he's never been a guy who played just to finish or for show.  It's all or nothing with him.
Remember he won a US Open, in a playoff no less, with two stress fractures and torn ACL. pain is nothing new for this guy.
Yes, he's older but he's also smarter as a result of that experience.
No one know the course like him and no one understands the impact of what he is doing by playing this week.
Yes he has to walk but it's not like he's gonna have to carry his bag too.

he's won the mental battle, can he win the physical one? time will tell.
he's the same age as Jack was when he won his last major right?
it's going to be great theatre.
the only thing better would have been if he and Phil (if he was playing) would have been paired together with Couples.

If Tiger is near the top of the leaderboard at any point this weekend, I think we will see the Tiger intimidation effect on the rest of the field. The crowds he is going to pull will be so disruptive to everyone else. It's going to be awesome to watch.

It’s not so much whether he can endure pain.  At least not in his foot/ankle.

His walking is compromised.  His weight shift is different.  He’s keeping more weight on his front side, which puts more strain on his upper body to generate what is being reported as essentially the same swing speed and carry distances. 

I’m wondering how his back is going to hold up.

The high winds and gusts that are coming up tomorrow and Friday won’t help either.

He won’t intimidate anybody gimping around like a geriatric.

Probably not, but “Tiger’s Back” will probably be the reason he withdraws after starting out like shit.
