Tiger Woods Invitational at Congressional

An exciting Sunday so far. It seems like AK is having trouble aiming left, which has happened a few times in the past 3 rounds too. Tiger is continuing to have occasional big misses with his driver, but also continues to hit beautiful, soft fades into a lot of pins.

AK's aim issue will be something he's gonna have to address next week on his off days. It's just a matter of retraining and a bit of focus, which I don't think will be much of a problem.

Tiger's problems might take a bit longer. It seems to be that when he's hitting fades with his irons he has a great, smooth lateral move through transition and impact. When he tries to hit draws, however, and especially with his driver/fairways, he seems to hang back, jump, and spin violently. I believe this is an attempt to stay behind the ball and release his right hand past his body to close the face- a rather difficult timing move.
