I can't imagine the smashing anything against a heavy tire good for any part of the body.  Not sure what he's trying to achieve that an impact bag wouldn't do.

As long as he keeps missing short putts with regularity at crunch time, he's not to be feared.

Saying F You to the Tour and still playing in two of their tournaments is exactly what Rory is going to be doing in Europe next year! Haha.

Nice catch there.  It's very possible that he's struck more golf shots than anyone in history.  He's just pounded range balls for decades.

Combined with his fitness work, I would bet on him as top worker in golf history

You're right. When was that? 30-35 years ago?

That plus the antler spray episode cancels out his:

60+ Professional wins
WHOF induction (youngest player ever)
Reaching world ranking #1 and ending Tiger's 264 week WGR domination
60+ Mio career earnings
Google the rest...

What a chump.

I can't stand the guy because his caddy yelled at me at the Senior Open for moving while VJ was putting when I was about 200 yards away.  Nonetheless, I gotta respect the guy's work ethic.  He's an inspiration for any older golfer.
