battled well there for the most part just the lack of distance off the tee by keep taking irons caught up with him.

I think with the benefit of hindsight he would have taken driver off some of those holes off the back nine.

all in all looking very positive for tiger going forward. don't forget that this isn't the old tiger, fearless when in the lead, it's the new version but he's still very competitive. he's not used to being on that front end of the majors he has to get used to it again.

acquitted himself a lot better than some of the others up there and I can see him going very close in the pga.

I thought he played great this week and is now back in the top elite. I think he has also regained the respect of the fans which will be very important to him.

Moving in the right direction although may never get a better chance to win another major than today. Was a bit unlucky to have the club rap over on 11 was in a similar spot to molinari off the tee but that's golf. With hindsight if he knew a double was coming he probably wishes he had bombed the driver down like rory did.

agreed, looks a cracking bet for the pga as well as this will only feed his confidence. a lot of the top players for me look like they're in a dodgy place as concerns the majors, but tiger will only get a skip in his step now. the fact that he's had this experience again of being in the lead will be a huge positive.

totally disagree mighty I think he'll get a lot of other chances, he'll play for five years at the top level, it's golf after all you can play at a high level well into your forties which phil and tiger are currently demonstrating.

frustrating for me today though as tiger winning would have been an 8k payout Sad

His best chance remains at Augusta.

people shouldn't criticise him for rarely hitting driver, if you've seen his recent form with the driver you will understand

Not that long ago we weren't sure if we'd ever see him competing again.


Agree with lewisham--looking very positive for the future.

Can't win at Augusta if you can't hit driver. Agree with mighty, great chance today. An Open in tough conditions may be his best suited now. New version of Tiger is a course manager, if he wants to break Snead's record of 82 wins I think he needs to start including the Harbour Towns and Colonials of the world where he can just plot his way around. If he wins that's how it looks its going to happen, can't overpower the field anymore, you need certain courses and conditions for that.

Firestone will be interesting, he always loved it and seems perfect for the current version of Tiger as well.
