Do GolfWRX members think Tiger Woods will win the Valspar Championship?



Words just a few months ago only the most die-hard of Tiger truthers would have expected to read: Tiger Woods seized the lead at a PGA Tour event today. He was tied for the lead at four under when he finished his round.

The 14-time major champion took the outright lead with a birdie on his 14th hole of the day at Innisbrook’s Copperhead Course after grabbing a share three holes prior with the birdie below .

Woods built on the positive momentum of an opening-round 1-under 70 with his second-round 68; he was buoyed by better play off the tee and an excellent putting performance. Woods carded four birdies, burning edges of a couple of additional birdie efforts. His only bogey came after an untidy wedge into the final green left him short-sided and unable to save par.

“I’ve got a chance going into the weekend,” Woods said after the round. “I keep getting a little bit better here and there, making these subtle tweaks. I needed a little bit more tournament time in and I’ve done that. I’m getting feel for it, finding the rhythm of rounds and not having a problem posting scores.”

Woods was tied for the lead a four under when he tapped in his final putt. He’ll enter the weekend in contention, in pursuit of his first win in more than four years.

And here’s a quick cut of Woods’ four birdies, also courtesy of the PGA Tour.

So, having suggested he can contend at PGA National, and having shown it with certainty at Innisbrook today, the question is can Tiger Woods really win this golf tournament?

Expectations, like Woods’ Masters odds, have adjusted faster than downhill, down grain putt on a U.S. Open green every time he’s teed it up this year. We’re curious what you think, GolfWRX members, will Tiger Woods win the Valspar Championship?

    He has lost the fear factor, and that is big. A lot of the new players know what he was, but still say who? There are more good players today than ever. He has done it, we all know, but the tide is changing. We have to respect his desire.

    Poor ‘ol Sneds is pouring the Cold to Tiger right now. You can tell Tiger would rather be at Perkins picking up servers.

      I hope he sleeps alone tonight instead of draining his vital juices and losing his golf mojo tomorrow … :-O

      Are you implying that Tiger Woods uses annabolic steroids or other PEDs?

    I called it early he should win one of these two events before Masters
    Motivation he has the desire to win has never been higher for him and then he can beat them all on sheer will.
    However, he havent won yet…….

      Golf is in the doldrums without a winning Tiger…. it’s in a deep quagmire and sinking into it’s own miasma. He’s the last great white hope for golf to recover it’s past glory among tv watchers seeking a hero to emulate, talk about, fantacize over… Come Back Tiger!!!

      I hope he’s not exhausting his vital juices that will give him the oomph to win.

    I hope after he wins he holds up double middles to all the haters. 79 wins and 14 majors to date. Say that out loud, how can you think that guy will never win again. If not this week, this year for sure

    Golf has nothing to do with fidelity for all you moralist.

      Like anyone cares what you think. Golf is also just a game and in the grand scheme of things means nothing.

    Come out Tiger haters. I’d like to hear what you have to say now. Suck it!

      Im sure you will be on the edge of your seat. Stroking yourself no doubt. Praying for your god Woods to win. Truly pathetic.

Tony Romo cards opening-round 77 in first PGA Tour start



Tony Romo shot a 5-over 77 at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship in the Dominican Republic.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback bogeyed the par-4 13th. He double bogeyed the par-5 14th. He bogeyed 15. He bogeyed 16. That’s 5 over in a four hole stretch.

If you’re tallying at home, however, you realize Romo was even par for the rest of his round. Indeed, after opening with back-to-back bogeys, he birdied the fourth and fifth holes to get back to even par. He was even through 12 holes, in fact. All of which is pretty good for a scratch-golfing former football player.

Here’s a long putt for par from Romo at the sixth.

Talking about his poor back-nine play, particularly wayward tee shots at the 15th and 16th holes, Romo said.

“I hit two poor tee balls. Just didn’t commit to it, and ultimately just got put in a tough spot where you’re just trying to make par. I hit a lot of good shots, and they ended up a couple times in some poor spots. But you learn the golf course as you play it throughout the week.”

“I really hit some good shots, and I’m close. I had a chance to be under par pretty easily there for a while, and then two or three shots on the back nine cost me. But that’s golf.”

Romo teed it up as an amateur partner at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February. He competed in the Western Amateur last spring, missing the 36-hole cut. He has thrice tried his hand at qualifying for the U.S. Open and most recently teed it up in a North Texas PGA Players Tour event earlier this month, where he withdrew during the second round having posted an opening-round 81.

Romo tees off for his second round at 1 p.m. ET Friday.

Tuesday’s Photos from the 2018 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play



GolfWRX is live this week from the 2018 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play event at Austin Country Club (par 71: 7,108 yards), a 1984 Pete Dye design.

The match play field is stacked, including the world No. 1-ranked Dustin Johnson, the reigning FedExCup champion Justin Thomas, the reigning Masters champion Sergio Garcia, and the two-time match play champion Jason Day. In total, 59 of the top 64 golfers in the world are playing in the event; Brooks Koepka (wrist), Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott and Henrik Stenson will not be in the field.


Last year, D. Johnson won the match play event, which was his third straight victory — that was before the freak accident at the Masters that kept him sidelined, preventing him from going for four straight wins.
