Cuban's Golf World Cover Shot: Tiger At The Players

The May 20, 2013 Golf World has arrived and besides looking sleak, features a classic J.D. Cuban shot of Tiger doing the post shot twirl.

The cover image and then, below it, the the full image viewable in full screen on Tumblr.


And the full image. Funny that Tiger is posing and Joe LaCava is pointing right:

Like you I thought LaCava was pointing right. But then it appears he just has his hand up to quiet the crowd. By Tigers walk thru it appears he hit it how he wanted. I like the bottom title as well, "The Complicated World of Sergio Garcia". There'd be days when I would take those "complications".

I see three of Tiger's "girlfriends" in the shot.
05.15.2013 | Unregistered CommenterGeo Man
Agree with Mike, it's "quiet please"....that ball was clearly scorched and piped, cover of the ball might have even been scraped ;)

Oddly the pic makes me think of Jackie Gleason!
05.15.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
That was on 18 tee. That hot little draw off the 18th tee box (toughest shot on the course) is the shot that tells me he is dialed in. He didn't have that shot at Augusta.

Of course, right after he he the shot NBC caught him dropping the f-bomb.
I see it, too, Del. Hey, hey, hey...
05.15.2013 | Unregistered CommenterPasaplayer
I think it's some kind of voodoo that when the next twosome was on the tee, caused Sergio's tee shot to go in the water.
05.15.2013 | Unregistered CommenterRGB
Well, it's not a picture he'll be framing and hanging above the fireplace. Not unless he's proud of being a nerdlinger.
05.15.2013 | Unregistered CommenterGhillie
A few frames later into his potty mouth expletive didn't make cover? Hoping for a pull out photo sequence of club twirl f bomb combo. Not sure who loves Tiger more Notah or himself.

A twirl with a fairway wood (believe that's his "senior club" 5 wood) doesn't quite have the same panache as one with a driver though...

Where do I get a pair of those socks the Marshall is wearing? They match those shoelaces perfectly. The man has style.

Fuse finally gets their money's worth.

Anyone that says they wouldn't have had the same expletive laced reaction after piping a drive on the most difficult driving hole on the course in that situation is full of it. Great drive, great reaction.

Richie, he had 153 in....tee ball went about 290...pretty sure it was a 3-wood.

Noticed an interesting stat on the PGA Tour site. 15 players have 4 or more top-10 finishes. Snedeker alone at 6. Seven players have 5 top-10's including Keegan, Ol' 3-iron, Horschel, Streelman, 3-sticks, Westwood and Tiger. Another 7 have 4 top-10's (includes Rory, GMAC, Kuch and Sergio).

It all adds up to 69 top-10 finishes. As a group the 15 players have achieved 9 total wins.

Tiger has 5 top-10's and converted those into 4 wins. The rest of the players have have 64 top-10's and have converted into 5 wins.

Don't shoot me....just pointing out some numbers.

I see Wittenberg learned his lesson on 14, and is actually watching this one.
05.15.2013 | Unregistered CommenterMatthewM
"Sleak."

Is that the same as "sleek?"
05.15.2013 | Unregistered Commenterbenseattle
Seems to work for Tiggly-Bumps somehow. Whatever else he is he is not "sleek." But "sleak" has real possibilities.

Yeah, yeah, I realised GS was talking about the magazine.

Let's see - Freddie Couples, Davis Love, Adam Scott, Matt Kuchar, Phil Mickesolson and Fred Funk to name a few - don't remember them dropping an F-bomb on the way to victory. In fact, I don't recall ANY former champion cursing after their tee shot on 18. Your position that executing the perfect shot under immense pressure somehow REQUIRES a screamed profanity is ludicrous. You are the one that is full of it....

I'm sensing there is a lot of overlap between the Anchoring Police and the Real Tiger Haters (RTH)...

...for those in that select group, if given the supreme ability to wave a wand, or broom, and immediately rid the game of anchoring, OR Tiger (whichever you choose the other remains permanently in the game), which would you choose?
05.16.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
No overlap here, DTF. I'm still firmly against the anchoring ban. I just wish Eldrick would at least try to work on his on-course behavior. He did say he was going to "respect" the game more, didnt' he?
05.16.2013 | Unregistered CommenterShadygolf
I would concur that things like his exclamation walking off the tee on 18 should be curbed. The thing I don't get is why to the TV people continue to point boom mics at him and zero in on his face in situations like that? I mean they know it's coming. One day at the Masters very first shot they boom mic him and he delivers within 5 seconds.....unreal.
05.16.2013 | Unregistered CommenterDTF
DTF - possibly, altough he did say this is his Sunday presser - "This 5-wood I was hitting most of the week was going 280 and I was carrying it easily 260. Those are big numbers. There's really no room to hit driver except for a few par-5s, and the wind had switched, came off the west over on 5, and it made no sense to hit driver there because even today I hit 5-wood off the tee because afraid of hitting 3-wood up over the hill and through the rough and into the bunker. Even that 5-wood was I think it was 310."
