According to a PGA golfer on twitter who has a hidden identity, Tiger is done for his career.

Says his back surgery was unsuccessful and it's worsened.

Some saying that video was taken a year ago or more.

Tour pro has a lot of credibility but it seems to have been shot to hell now.

Went and hit some balls at the range last week for the first time in years. Still slice it every single time almost haha. At least I only completely missed the ball like twice which is a lot less than I assumed.

I apologize for what follows. it is really just a random assortment of thoughts. but this questions seems to be a fairly common one. I think many people find themselves in this situation (or some variation thereof)

Do you have both? if so, the obvious answer is whichever one is more reliable for you (assuming they are similar distance).

do you have room in the bag? personally, I like to keep my bag at 14 clubs. this is a little strict, but I enjoy playing within the rules (I mean, what's the point of a game if you don't?). if you have room, and they play different for you, then put them both in the bag.

if you haven't played them both before, keep in mind that if they are similarly lofted, you may still get more distance from the 5w, as it will have a longer shaft and therefore higher clubhead speed (in theory).

the 5w may be a better option off the tee on long par 3. 3h might be better in difficult lies (e.g. thick rough).

Thanks for the response.

No, I don't have both. Yes, I have room (lots of room) in my bag. I do have a 5w, and I'm just wondering if it is worth the $$ to invest in a 3h if I already have a 5w, and I'm considering both distance from the fairway and playability from the rough.

Because lol, who can hit fairways.

Bricktop's last line is what I was going to respond with.

I keep a 3H instead of a 5W just for the tough lies. I can get the ball up and out of bermuda rough A LOT easier than trying to get a wood all the way down to the ball with any consistent contact.

The 3H is actually been useful to me around the greens a couple times in the past month when I've been up against the collar and used it with a putting stroke.

I actually play a 7w. I never planned on doing that, but I bought a TM V-steel 3w years ago and liked it so much I got matching 5w and 7w. at the time I was also playing my original set of clubs, including TopFlite irons from like the mid 90s (3i-P). the 7w made the 3i irrelevant.

fast forward to this summer when I was looking for new irons. I bought a set of Callaway XHot2 (4i-A). I now have pretty nice spacing from the irons to the woods. having the 7w made the iron set a tad cheaper (since I wasn't looking to get a 3i), and I can hit the 7w way more consistently than I could ever hit a high iron anyway.

btw i'm not a good golfer by any means, but since this thread is here, I figured I'd mention that I've put in almost 20 rounds since April, and have gotten my average score down from around 100 to 90.

back in high school was when I started playing, and I wasn't good then either, but I was OK enough to be on the school team. my personal best I shot a 92 in a school tourney, which stood my entire golfing life until this year when I shot an 87 just a few weeks ago.

Looks like Tiger is actually playing well, he might be able to really fine tune his game again and play...his short game looks really good...and that's where he won tourneys, not his distance.

Humble brag, hit a 76 at the "11th hardest course on the east coast" this weekend.

Crazy thing was, I didn't even really realize I was scoring that well...

next day I hit 83 so it was a fluke

It'll be interesting to see how he can build on this. It's probably the most positive he has played in 2 years. If he can even get back to 85% of his peak performance, he will be contending all through next year.

I saw a stat that he had as many birdies/eagles as Matsuyama. Unfortunately, Woods had a bunch of bogies/doubles. Should be expected though.

What the LPGA did today over a fucking viewer email to Lexi Thompson is one of the worst things I've ever seen in sports. I wanted to cry for her watching that interview after. Shit cost her a major. The person that emailed that in should eat a pile of glass.

The problem is the rules honestly. Absolutely unbelievable that bullshit. I can agree (in principle) with the 2 strokes for the playing from the wrong spot but not the 2 for signing the wrong scorecard.

I mean, if you've ever played competitively you always mark exactly where your fucking ball was. Not really that complicated and pretty stupid mistake imo

That is fine and dandy, but address it the day of or not at all.

The LPGA 1) Should not be taking viewer calls or emails 2) Not penalizing a player for something that happened the day before on the 9th hole Final round of a major
