Tiger has paid his dues, spam. If we can forgive politicians for their bad behavior, I can cheer Tiger on for getting past his. Winning his 5th major was an outstanding accomplishment and I for one am more than happy to congratulate him for that.

Another thing I saw from Tiger I never have before . After missing a short putt on 17 he was heading to 18 tee , all the spectators are leaning over the ropes looking for a nand slap . As usual Tiger was walking through focused , determined and pissed eyes center no attention to the crowd . For the first time ever Tiger veered and smiled slapping hands with a group of younger people .

True. He doesn't do it much, but anything is more than none, how he was. Some insiders say it's not a put-on.

What I noticed most was that he seems to be in better control of emotions now. I listened to what he had to say about his play after the win when he was in that room where they give out the Green Jacket - cool jacket BTW - he talked about plodding along from hole to hole and though I would hardly call his stroll a plod, I got what he was saying. He was calm and collected and took the misses much better than he had in the past. I was also happy to see that he had not a single twinge of pain and moved with fluid grace. I wish him all the best in future tournaments.

Yes he looks in control of his body and game . I expect he will be in the mix in the upcoming majors .

The courses at the next North American majors are right up his alley: Bethpage and Pebble Beach. If he's hanging around the leaderboards on the weekends it will be very interesting.

Good for her. I meant to check in on her round but got caught up in the US Open.

He can't compete at the full field majors.

He will be a threat at the Masters and at the odd Open, depending on the venue.

Will never catch Jack, his record simply is not as good.

'FLUKE ACCIDENT': Utah girl dies after being hit by dad's golf shot

A 6-year-old Utah girl died Monday after she was struck in the head by a golf ball hit by her father in what her uncle described as a “fluke accident” that “you couldn’t repeat if you tried.”
The accident occurred shortly after 10 a.m. as Aria Hill sat in a cart on a path about 15-20 yards to the left of her father as he teed off at Sleepy Ridge Golf Course in Orem. His drive struck her in the back of the head at the base of her skull, Lt. Trent Colledge of the Orem police told the Daily Herald, and she died after being airlifted to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.
“A complete, fluke accident – you couldn’t repeat it if you tried,” Hill’s uncle, David Smith, told KUTV. “She just happened to be in the exact wrong place, just directly across from him, when it happened.”
The cart, Colledge said, was 45-to-90 degrees to the left of Aria’s father, Kellen.
“You really can’t imagine what this is going to be like until it happens,” Smith added, speaking on behalf of the family and describing his niece as a “golfing buddy” for her father.
“She loved doing it and had a good time with it all,” Smith told KSL. “That was one of their things that they would do together. It was something that was really important to them and something they did all the time. ”
Steven Marett, the head golf professional at the course, described the accident as “absolutely unimaginable,” adding, “it’s been devastating to see it at the course and in the community.” Colledge described the incident as “a tragic accident” and said, “we are investigating it as such.”
In a post on a GoFundMe account created to raise funds for medical and funeral expenses, Smith wrote: “In her mother’s words: ‘We are so grateful for all the love, support, and prayers made in our behalf during this difficult time. We’ve truly felt comforted. Aria was the sassiest girl in the world. She was silly, spunky, creative, unique, and so so full of love for everyone she came in contact with. There is a huge hole in our hearts that she has taken with her back to Heaven . . . Fly high my little angel.’”

Tiger misses the cut by 5 at the Open.

No surprise.

He is something like 7 cuts in his last 15 majors.

Snapping turtle lays eggs in N.S. golf course bunker — again

A snapping turtle named Shelley who has laid its eggs in the sand trap at the seventh hole for the second year in a row on the Debert Golf Course in Debert, N.S., is seen in this undated photo provided Aug. 6, 2019.Mark Webb / THE CANADIAN PRESS/HO
HALIFAX — Most golfers would rather avoid sand traps, and that’s especially true now on a course in central Nova Scotia where a resident snapping turtle has laid its eggs in the same bunker for the second year in a row.
With nature taking its course, the sand trap on the seventh hole of the Debert Golf Course has been declared off limits, course manager Mark Webb said in an interview Tuesday.
“We have a sign down there and it is a roped off area,” Webb said. “Everybody has kind of kept their distance, and if their ball lands in it, they pick it up and put it in another spot.”
Webb said the turtle nicknamed Shelley was rescued from the side of a road last year by a friend and brought to the course, where it has apparently made itself at home.
“At the time we thought it was a male, so we called it Sheldon,” he said with a laugh. “About two days later we had noticed that it had dug a hole in the sand trap and it had laid eggs.”
Webb said that after a hatching last September, he was able to help three of the baby turtles make it safely to a pond on the course. The nine-hole course has several ponds that provide an ideal turtle habitat.
After the young turtles hatched, Webb said the mother disappeared and the course staff didn’t see it until it turned up recently to lay more eggs.
“There are two or three big ponds and they are quite heavily cat-tailed up, so obviously she was living there the whole time and we didn’t even know it,” he said. “Like my wife said, obviously she found a friend and she laid eggs again.”
Webb said he still hasn’t seen last year’s little ones yet this year, adding they were “only the size of a toonie” when he helped them into the water.
Andrew Hebda, curator of zoology with the Nova Scotia Museum, said while snapping turtles often lay eggs in June, recent cooler springs have meant the eggs are being laid later in the summer.
The current batch of eggs may not hatch until October Hebda said, and if gets cooler earlier in the summer or fall the hatchlings may not emerge from the trap until next spring.
Hebda said snapping turtles, which can live until the age of 60 or more, are listed as vulnerable in Nova Scotia. He said that’s mainly because of the high mortality rate of young turtles and the fact females have a tendency to lay their eggs at the sides of roads because of the favourable conditions the terrain can present, including warm gravel and asphalt.
That of course, raises the danger for the slow-moving reptiles.
“Unfortunately a lot of people tend not to slow down for wildlife unless they can possibly cause damage to their vehicles,” Hebda said.
The problem is so bad the Nature Conservancy of Canada issued a plea to motorists in eastern Canada in June asking them to slow down, noting there are eight turtle species in Ontario and six species in Quebec that are considered at risk.
In Quebec alone, 75 roads and highways have been identified as “hot spots” for vehicles striking turtles.
Hebda said the Debert turtle is fortunate to have found a habitat that includes a sand trap, because it presents “the ideal stable conditions” to suit it in the long run.
“Good spot for eggs, probably bad spot for bad golfers,” he quipped.

Should have laid them up on the green, where hardly any balls ever land.

Those bunkers have golf ball magnets in them.
