Hello World
 
Anyone else get flashbacks watching Jordan Spieth this weekend?

LLLLet's Golf!: Hello, World - Spieth Arrives In A Very Familiar Fashion

I don't understand what more they want Rory to do. He is only 24-25? years old. So he did not get the "grand slam" this year. He way never get it (see Tom Watson and Arnold Palmer) but he has a good chance.

There is only 1 Jack, Tiger and Bobby Jones. Maybe Rory will join them, but give him the time.

Tiger Woods, not Rory McIlroy, is the one suffering most from the current rise of Jordan Spieth. Seeing how Spieth carried himself at Augusta with humility, courtesy and class reminds the world how much Tiger Woods lacks these qualities.

Rory is still Numero Uno...and Jordan Spieth is now No. 2. Tiger Woods is history and the lefty is getting old.

Yup, Tiger is history. It's all about salvaging his legacy now. People will remember not only the golf he played, but the person he was, and the battle for the latter just got a whole lot harder.

The only thing that Jordan Spieth has to worry is losing his hair. :biggrin: Because of the heat on the course, by the time he reach thirty he'll be completely bald and looks like fifty. At 21 he looks older than Bubba Watson and Ricky Fowler. Tiger Woods' hair is also thinning. Well...you can not win them all! :ani_pc:

Honestly, I think this is American golf fans clamoring for another dominating American golfer. It's not going to happen - the field is WAY deeper this time around, and all this talk about Rory Vs Spieth is a little premature with Day and Matsuyama hanging out. I was watching Mike & Mike yesterday, and one of the fill in hosts that I've never seen before was saying that "Rory is a kid, Jordan is a man" because he liked Jordan's personality better. It's the most asinine thing I've heard.

Rory will get the Grand Slam in time. There's every chance he gets it more than once (multiple wins in each Major).

Spieth is a wonderful talent. He never let anyone get close enough to challenge on Sunday ; and to be that composed at the final round of the Masters,at his age,was incredible.

There's some great young talent on the PGA tour.It bodes well for a bright future.

I suppose Woods will disappear for a month,now,before the circus starts again at the Players' Championship...

Agreed.

If Jordan Speith keeps this up it won't be long before we hear "Tiger, who?"

According to Tiger it will be some time before he plays again. I wonder if he might have hurt his hand/wrist/whatever more than he let on in the interview. He has a history of keeping it pretty close to the vest unless he has to be carted off the course.:confused:

He also has a history of dramatic responses to every injury. Lots of players get injured during tournaments. He's the only one that makes them into Academy-Award winning performances.

I believe his intent all along was to come out and play in the Masters then go back to changing his swing for the 523rd time and come out again at the US Open, where, if he is spraying the ball all over the course like he was in Round 4 of the Masters, we can expect him to dramatically claim to pop another bone back into place.

Remember, he's also the guy that started grandly dropping his club after a bad shot. Now, that stupid behavior is becoming common place in golf.

He's an ass and an arrogant jerk and always has been. As I wrote above, the common courtesy and humility displayed by younger players like McIlroy, Spieth, Fowler, etc. only serves to highlight Woods' asshole-ness.

dangerbob 04-14-2015 05:26 PM

He hasn't gotten so many asses since he got caught, the reason why he's in a bad mood and act like an asshole. :5:

I will only speak to this instance. Look at the replay. He made a hard swing and took a chunk out of the root that went flying. That hurt's.

Yes he seems to be a drama queen every time he reaches for his back.

Yes,but at least he remembered which wrist it was. :wavey:

You woud think he'd be back for the Players' Championship in May.

Accompanied by much fawning and drooling from the media.

He'll then disappear again until the US Open,where he'll declare himself healthy and ready to compete. This is usually followed by him exiting the tournament holding his wrist,glutes,back,groin,etc.

Then the whole thing can play out again at the next tournament he turns up to.

Preach it,sister.

Perhaps when he finally departs the scene,he might take a few of the boorish arseholes in the gallery along with him...
