Tiger didn't prepare himself well for Greenbrier
Well I might agree with a comment that he didn't have an opportunity to play the course as much as he has others and that may have effected his play in round 1. I did hear him in a interview after that round make a comment that his problems stemmed from not knowing the course, but that he now knew the course going into round 2.
As I posted previously Tigers issues at the Greenbrier continued to be the issues that he fights each week, Exploting to the maximum his advantage on the par 5's and getting his approach shots into a position where the birdie opportunities are reasonable, birdie opportunies from 20 feet aren't high probabilities. Like any pro when he does those things properly they have a good chance of winning, you don't you go home early. It does seem to be an off and on thing. Clearly you could see that he was frustrated with his short iron play, to me the thing that really stood out was his wedge play, by Tiger standards it was pretty dismal and cost him dearly on a number of holes yesterday. Some weeks are better than others, but there were no excuses for this week. He doesn't make them and I don't think they should be part of the conversation.
BTW the suggestions that I saw in other posts that he was simply mailing this one in are pure BS. Tiger doesn't play that way and he was the picture of intensity on the back 9 trying to make that cut.
Very well stated from someone who obviously has studied Tiger Woods. The comments from the other TTF's were spot on also. The remaining comments on this post were obviously "troll" comments trying to get someone to take the bait. The only thing these trolls have in common is their vitriol.
Tiger took his money and ran. 2nd weakest field ever and he misses the cut? Painfully obvious he had no interest being there.
To say that "Tiger took the money and ran" is a baseless opinion that really has no history to support it. Yes, Tiger's putting was off, his wedge game cost him strokes, and he seemed frustrated with his performance. That's it.
