The ‘stinger’ golf shot is nothing new in golf. If you have played for any length of times, I am confident you have tried to hit this specialty shot. Personally, I think Tiger Woods is the player who popularized it more than any other player and would rate him the best ever at making this shot. I personally do not practice this shot often, but would consider myself a slightly better than average player when attempting a ‘stinger’. How do you think you would fair attempting this shot?>
WOW. All I can really say is WOW! Congratulations to Tiger Woods on winning his 15th Major. He demonstrated that he has plenty of game left and can compete with all the young superstars. I wonder what is next.
Let us not forget the low amateur. Congratulations Viktor Holand. Well played!
I do not think we will see a final round in a Major like the one we witnessed today for a very long time. It was amazing to watch all the runs from out of nowhere. It kept me on edge right down to the end.
Congratulations again to Tiger Woods for demonstrating how to win against the thundering hoard.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
