Forgetaboutit!
Butch has helped Phil's swing, and if he gave him a few insider tips regarding Tiger, I can tell you this. It will be short lived. If Tiger has any "tells" you can bet he will change them up, since Phil blew his chance by talking to media about it. Tiger gave up 9 shots via putting in this loss, and the fact is, Tiger lost, Phil didn't beat him per se.

Watch out for next week. As Tiger put it, "I just have to iron out a few kinks in my putting, eliminate the three putts, and I am right there."

Phil still has no class. To take a shot at Finchem and the Tour because "he didn't do as I asked," is just so much crap. What, Finchem isn't a free agent? Phil and Tiger aren't "independent contractors?"

The whole PGA needs to take a strong look in the mirror. As does the game.

Rounds are down, revenues are down, shops are closing, second tier companies are struggling, TV viewership without Tiger is down. Rounds take too long to play, good courses are too expensive, PGA instruction is like going to a psychiatrist or a dope dealer, yada, yada...not that there is anything wrong with that.

CB,

Well, from your post, I guess that Woods will never, ever, be outscored by another touring pro.

CB Maxwell,

---"the fact .

is, Tiger lost, Phil didn't beat him per se"---

No, CB, that is not a fact.

The facts are that Phil not only outscored Tiger in the four rounds of the DeutscheBank, in the three rounds that the two played in the same groups and final pairing, Phil came out on top in two and tied one.

He did slightly better than Tiger in virtually all facets of the game.

Coincidentally, if the rounds had been match play, the results would have been the same, two wins, zero losses and a tie in favor of Phil.

From those facts, I'd say any sensible person could see Phil did indeed beat Tiger at the DeutscheBank along with about 119 others.

Yes, I will take the whipping. Phil "beat" Tiger.

To the author of this article and to the idiots buying the nonsense Hefty is talikng, tiger wins because he is better and more consistent than anyone who plays on the tour and maybe has ever played. How halarious and weakminded is it that Hefty and Harmon actually prepare for the supposit mind games Tiger will play on his opponents. Harmon must still be rensentful that Woods has proven that he doesnot need him to be as successful as he has since leaving him.

Derek,

Please say that your post is a joke.

Please assure us that nobody could possibly be as dumb as you're pretending to be.

The author wrote an entire article about Tiger's alleged mindgames but failed to illustrate a single example. What does he do? Whisper during his oppenent's backswing? Step on his opponent's putting line? Tell his opponent that he slept with his wife? Kidnapped his children? Tell dirty jokes about his mother? What??????
