This is the tournament that Shubhankar Sharma had done very well in 2018 as the altitude makes the course play much shorter than the listed length. However, it is now clear that his game has regressed since last year but hopefully this is the one step back before he takes 2 steps forward.

I think he got too much fame and adulation too quickly. He was on every golf show, think his teenage sister was getting invited to commentate/write articles etc.

American media was desperate for an Indian golfing superstart and thought Shubhankar was it, while his game was clearly underprepared as we talked about last year as well.

Sad that neither Shubhankar nor Anirban Lahiri is playing in the Masters this year. Tiger Woods seems poised for a comeback win, finishing the first and second day just one shot behind the leaders.

That was surely one of the greatest comebacks — and perhaps one of the greatest stories — in the history of sport. Tiger winning his 15th major 11 years after his 14th one...

Tiger Woods ... :notworthy:
Yes, simply unbelieving but heartening.

Yes, Tiger will likely be the unquestioned GOAT if he can stay fit for the next couple of years or so as he has been playing at a very high level for the last year.

He is now #2 in major wins with 15 behind Jack Nicklaus' 18 and #2 in PGA tour wins with 81 behind Sam Snead with 82 (with Jack Nicklaus as the #3 at 73). He could well end up with 17-18 majors and somewhere between 85-90 PGA tour titles before he is done as long as injury does hamper him in the next few years...
