You are correct Tiger needs to own the par 5's, hit the fairways and stay out of the bunkers, sand dunes or whatever they are being called this week @ Kiawah. :)
PAR 5S ARE ALWAYS THE HARDEST HOLES WITH MORE HAZARDS,
HE NEEDS HIS APPROACH SHOTS
APPROACHING THE FLAG, THEN HE'LL BE UNSTOPPBLE.
I can't figure out his deficiency on the 5s right now. His driving is more controlled now and his ball-striking is good. Even when he tore Par 5s apart, it was mostly going for them in two. People point to his lackluster wedge play right now, but that isn't the problem.
It is a laundry list of things it seems. Poor drives not allowing him to go for it in two, If he goes for it in two he ends up with a poor shot, when he has to use 3 shots he is not getting his third close with the poor wedge play, and finally missing makeable putts. It isn't just one thing to point to it seems. He seems to be hitting the ball as long as ever but for whatever reason above he is not scoring on the par 5s. He is only -4 on 36 par 5 attempts at majors this year. He is giving a significant number of shots to the field.
Adam Scott at it again. 3 par 5s, 3 birdies. Scott dominated the par 5s at Lytham.
