Did Tiger Woods Jordan-proof Hero Challenge by Changing Location? (Also: A major announcement about the future of this golf website)

Jordan Spieth was forced to spot two shots a round to many in the field in this weeks OWGR-points giveaway exhibition tournament.  Why do I say that?  Because the Hero Challenge was played on a wide open course more suitable for a long drive contest than a professional golf event.  Even so, Jordan Spieth, the greatest golfer since Jack Nicklaus, nearly pulled it off.

If Tiger Woods did Jordan-proof the tournament, it would not be the first time such a thing was done.  Augusta National Jack-proofed their course in 1966 in an attempt to rein in the long-knocking Golden Bear.  It didn’t work too well, as Jack went on to win that year — and three others!  Jack wound up with six Masters titles, a mark thought unmatchable until Young Jordan’s romp last April.

Lanny H Golf is making an early 2016 Make Me Pay pledge: If Jordan Spieth wins the Grand Slam, I will donate $1000 to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital.  Make me pay, Jordan!

***  Coming Wednesday ***

In preparation for our Tiger-Free Initiative in 2016, we are injecting a new meme into the golf world: Diggin’ Up Bones.  Stay tuned!

Oh, I almost forgot:  Here’s a reprise of the famous Woods/PED busts/results graph:

woodschartI need to update that chart.  OWGR #65 is a pipe dream for Woods at this point.  He currently resides at OWGR #411.  To save my time, I ask you to envision that last drop extending 5x farther down.

    Before I read the two paragraphs I just have to say that headline was freakin’ hilarious!

  2. TigerFan says:

    I like Jordan but your fandom, at the expense of what Tiger accomplished, makes it easy to root against Jordan.

      What the…? Dude, get help. You are stuck in the past. Try golfchannel.com; they love old, stale, false narratives every bit as much as you do. Here at Lanny H Golf, we’re not into fairytales.

      P.S. You root for and against whomever you want. Why would I care?

    Fairytales??? Jordan winning the grand slam is right up there with Cinderella. I don’t think he’ll win one major in 2016. The PGA is too strong for him to reapeat 2015. “Greatest golfer since Jack”. Now I know you are just trying to goad the Tiger supporters into commenting. Like Josey is alluding to with his “tick, tick, tick”, even you realize if you don’t blog about Tiger, you lose about 90% of your traffic and comments. You will realize why the golf media continues to prop him up.

      Okay, read my lips: I don’t care if I lose EVERY reader. If people are coming here to read about Tiger Woods, they need to instead follow Jaime Diaz on Twitter or something. There are a million golf websites for the Tiger Only idiots to post. This website caters to more intelligent and knowledgeable people.

      This website is going Tiger Woods-Free in 2016. If you don’t like that, start your own blog. It’s free. I’ll post a link to it here!

    Perhaps do some homework before suggesting such drivel? The move to the Bahamas was announced 2 years ago when Jordan had all of 1 win. And it seems pretty clear that Spieth can win almost anywhere. Plus Tiger would much rather see him win than Bubba. But hey.

    Lanny , Spieth must be about 50/1 for the grand slam Wager $20 and your $1000 will be covered :). Bet $40 and you’ll keep $1000 for yourself

      Oh, man, you are right!

      Too bad such games of risk are illegal in (most parts of) the U.S. Do you have a strategy for fantasy golf? (Which is, of course, a game dependent strictly upon skill.)
