I will always guess Town & Country?

No, just kept it local today @ Springfield CC in Delco. I keep meaning to get down there though.

Phil had a magical day at Pebble. Half of GIR and he shot a 67.

That is absurd

Riviera CC is up next.  Tiger has never won there. Great field. Hogan's Alley - my favorite golfer. Had a chance to see him play at Whitemarsh CC. On the practice range he hit 3 woods on one bounce to his caddie.

Tried to time my forced Amaryllis bulb for Valentines Day when I potted it a few weeks ago. 

It’s about to bloom with a cool heart shape ironically as of today.

T-64th... aka dead last lol. Started great with the eagle on hole 1, day 1... and it was all downhill from there. He checked out on Sunday. Easy range session. He’s no fan of the cold weather. Probably just hard for him to keep his back loose.

Kind of reminds me of my personal experiences with Town & Country.  I really like the course, but I never play well there.  Tiger just can't do it at Riviera.  Cold, wet, sunny, warm, he can't win there.  A war of attrition that Adam won.  I don't know if this is a trend, but they have been setting up courses with near death rock hard greens to keep scores from going way low (assuming the weather cooperates).

no rain at LAX for 22 days going into the tournament & over the past 48 days only 0.38", well below average for this time of year

Tiger's win at the Masters last year was most likely his best win after all his injuries. May be Ben Hogan's recovery from the car accident is in the same league. It's a wonder he is as mobile as he is. I have a feeling that when the Magnolias bloom at Augusta all this aches and pains fade into background

A look at the injuries for Tiger Woods, who marked the 1-year anniversary of his latest comeback at the Hero World Challenge: 
 
December 1994: Surgery on left knee to remove two benign tumors and scar tissue. 
 
Dec. 13, 2002: Surgery on left knee to remove fluid inside and outside the ACL and remove benign cysts from his left knee. Misses the season opener in 2003. 
 
August 2007: Ruptures the ACL in his left knee while running on a golf course after the British Open, but is able to keep playing. Wins five of the last six tournaments he plays, including the PGA Championship for his 13th major. 
 
April 15, 2008: Two days after the Masters, has arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to repair cartilage damage. 
 
May 2008: Advised weeks before the U.S. Open that he has two stress fractures of the left tibia and should rest for six weeks, the first three weeks on crutches. 
 
 
June 24, 2008: Eight days after winning the U.S. Open, has surgery to repair the ACL in his left knee by using a tendon from his right thigh. Additional cartilage damage is repaired. Misses the rest of the season and does not return until the Match Play Championship at the end of February 2009. 
 
December 2008: Injured his Achilles tendon in his right leg as he was running while preparing to return to golf. 
 
Nov. 27, 2009: Hospitalized overnight with a sore neck and a cut lip that required five stitches when the SUV he was driving ran over a fire hydrant and into a tree. 
 
May 9, 2010: Withdrew from the final round of The Players Championship, citing a bulging disk. He later said it was a neck issue that caused tingling in his right side, and that it first became a problem as he began practicing harder for his return to the Masters a month earlier. 
 
April 10, 2011: Injures his left Achilles tendon hitting from an awkward stance below Eisenhower's Tree on the 17th at Augusta National. Withdraws from the Wells Fargo Championship. 
 
 
May 12, 2011: Withdraws from The Players Championship after a 42 on the front nine. Diagnosed with an MCL sprain in his left knee and in his left Achilles tendon. He misses the next two months, including two majors, returning at the Bridgestone Invitational. 
 
March 11, 2012: Feels tightness in his left Achilles tendon and withdraws after 11 holes of the final round in the Cadillac Championship at Doral. He wins in his next start at Bay Hill, his first PGA Tour victory since the scandal in his personal life. 
 
Aug. 24, 2012: Moves stiffly during the second round of The Barclays and later says he felt pain in his lower back, which he attributed to a soft mattress in his hotel room. 
 
June 13, 2013: Is seen shaking his left arm during the opening round of the U.S. Open. He later says it's a left elbow strain that he injured while winning The Players Championship a month earlier. He misses two tournaments and returns at the British Open. 
 
Aug. 11, 2013: Said he felt tightness in his back during the final round of the PGA Championship. 
 
Aug. 21, 2013: Two weeks after the PGA Championship, he only chips and putts on the back nine of the pro-am at The Barclays, complaining of a stiff neck and back that he attributed to a soft bed in the hotel. By Sunday at The Barclays, he dropped to his knees after one shot because of back spasms. 
 
 
March 2, 2014: Withdraws after 13 holes of the final round at The Honda Classic because of lower back pain and spams, describing it as similar to what he felt at The Barclays. 
 
March 9, 2014: Plays the final 12 holes with pain in his lower back, saying it began to flare up after hitting out of the bunker from an awkward lie in the Cadillac Championship at Doral. He shoots 78, the highest score of his career in a final round. 
 
March 19, 2014: Withdraws from the Arnold Palmer Invitational because of the persistent pain in his back. He was the two-time defending champion. 
 
March 31, 2014: Has surgery in Utah for a pinched nerve.

March 4, 2019: Woods withdraws from the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a neck strain
