Nope, that was yesterday, at 16, during the practice round of Fowler and Rahm.

That was nuts. Almost as nuts as it being November 11 and The Masters starts tomorrow.

I'm looking forward to see what the course looks like in November.

Rain. It looks like rain.

Today only though correct?  I know that will affect the greens tomorrow as well.  They'll play slower.

It is really weird seeing someone hit a great shot at Augusta, and then hear nothing but silence (there is a smattering of clapping, but it is still eerie).

Tiger put up a 10 on the par 3 12th in the final round......still had a 39 on the back nine.
Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?

Congrats to D.J. What a performance! That dude is the consummate professional. During the Butler Cabin interview, I couldn't believe it when he said that he was nervous all day. You never would have known by looking at his demeanor.

It was weird without the patrons, but at times, it was pretty cool too. With all the HD drones the broadcast was using, there were great images of the course and the property that you'd never see otherwise.

Tiger Woods was hospitalized after being involved in a single-car accident in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning. According to his agent, Mark Steinberg, Woods suffered “multiple” leg injuries.

“He is currently in surgery,” Steinberg told Golf Digest, “and we thank you for your privacy and support.”
That dosen't sound good at all, hopefully he can recover.

As someone who was in a brutal car wreck, had to also be removed via the Jaws of Life, suffered multiple leg injuries which required multiple surgeries - I can tell you it does not sound good. I haven't stepped foot on a golf course since my accident in 2007. Gotten as far as the driving range. When you have 1 knee that was turned into swiss cheese due to a shattered femur and an ankle on the other leg that was wrecked, it makes swinging a club and rotating through very difficult. I miss playing so much. Hoping to one day get it together enough to have the confidence to endure/enjoy a round again.

The more I read about this, the more I think that Tiger Woods is lucky to be alive.  What a horrific accident.  I can't imagine him ever golfing on a competitive level again; you just hope he recovers to where he can walk again.  It's hard not to fear the worst at this point given that it sounds like he was already addicted to painkillers because of his back issues, and now all of these new issues will add more layers of pain.  Just awful.

Yeah. Could have easily been killed. Most reports are saying there was no indication of drugs or alcohol. That stretch of road and section is apparently notorious for that style of accident.....so it appears it was just a horrible accident.

I loved/love watching Tiger play golf. I had hoped he would have broke that record and until this there was an outside chance he could still pull it off. I don’t see how it’s possible he wins another tournament, much less a major ever again.

I was never a Tiger guy. I don't dislike him. Whenever I hear about someone who took up golf because of him, I think that's awesome. But I also didn't enjoy watching a tournament when he was clearly out of contention, yet still garnered most of the coverage. "Hey, PGA Pro, you just won the tournament, how do you feel about Tiger coming in 24th?"

I remember someone saying he grew up playing golf for his dad, then he played as a pro for to get to 18 majors, and now is playing for fun. It would be too bad if his playing for fun days were cut short.
