Tiger Woods 2009 WGC Match PlayI watched every hole of Tiger’s loss against Tim Clark yesterday. Tim Clark wasn’t afraid of Tiger, which was refreshing. Clark hit some great clutch shots en route to his 4&2 win.

Rusty Tiger

Tiger’s game looked a little rusty yesterday. His normally deadly short game wasn’t quite working. His distance control on his chipping was on the long side. He had some directional issues with his approaches. But just when I thought his short game was not looking great he holed out from a bunker for birdie.

The knee?

On one bunker shot Tiger had about the worst fried egg I’ve ever seen. He took as big of a lash at that thing as I’ve ever seen him take and the knee looked fine. That huge, hard swing didn’t phase Tiger at all. The knee doesn’t appear to be a factor at this point.

Next tournament for Tiger?

In the post game interview Kelly Tilghman asked Tiger when he planned to play next. Naturally she mentioned Doral, where Tiger plays well. Tiger danced around the question and didn’t give a solid answer. I figure he’s going to go home and feel out the knee and analyze his game.

My money is on Tiger returning for Doral at this point and if not a guarantee for Bay Hill.

Fred Couples putting stroke, Northern Trust

I’m trying to watch the finish of the Northern Trust Open on my DVR without finding out who won… Phil Mickelson, Steve Stricker, Rory Sabbatini and Fred Couples are battling it out. Stricker is looking good (especially since he’s on my fantasy team).

I’ve never realized how bad Freddy’s putting can be on short putts. His real stroke is nothing like his practice stroke. I can now understand why he switched to a belly putter. Unfortunately I saw an incoming link to HOG which spoiled part of the outcome stating that Freddy came up short. However it didn’t say who won so I’m still not completely spoiled…

A few days ago in this post I recall mentioning that the match play would be a good candidate for Tiger’s return…  🙂
