Good for him.

I guess that arthritis medication finally kicked in, huh?

This was on the real tour and not the Seniors? Holy crap. More importantly, is his wife still hot?

Pull a Tiger Woods and play in every tournament no big world tour players are playing in.

5 years, win or not - probably north of $300 million in earnings during that time.  No tears to cry here.

Yeah, that's kinda his thing. He puts himself in stupid situations and then Houdini's himself out of them.

I watched. I was sports entertained.

Don't fill bad for Phil though. His annual income is estimated at $51 million so he's been okay during his slump.

I don't think Jack has to worry about that record.  I can't be bothered to check, but long before Phil hit the tour I remember seeing an infographic about Jack's record for second place finishes, and it was higher then the next three places combined.  Of course nobody gave him any grief over it because he won so often.

How did Phil keep #2 in the world without winning?  Is Bill Francis consulting for the PGA?

/ok, I checked.  18 major wins, 19 major runner ups (both records)
//58 PGA wins (third, I believe), 39 runner-up (I think Wiki included majors in the "runner ups".  It didn't break out majors).
///pretty sure Tiger didn't place second very often.  He was either on (and clearly ahead) or off (although often on the leader board).  Don't know about Snead (who won more PGA wins than Jack).

Eh, he's worth 375 million dollars.  I doubt he's all that broken up about not winning more tournaments.

Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: Pull a Tiger Woods and play in every tournament no big world tour players are playing in.


That's pretty rich. If you did a career 'strength of schedule' calculation Tiger would be so far ahead of the guy in second place the dude wouldn't be able to see him on a kansas freeway at high noon.

Phil still has three years to go for senior play. Assuming there is a senior tour in three years. I'm sure it's not going anywhere but every time I see a glimpse of one of those events it looks like a ghost town.

Will it take another five years for people to shut the fark up about it too?

I'm serious, Phil.  Let it go.

Humira and Enbrel never really 'kicks in'. It just reduces your bodies ability to destroy itself by shutting down your immune system. No TNF blocker is 100% effective and the potential side effects of shooting this shiat in your leg every week are horrifying. Simple Fact, the gene marker HLA B27+ is hereditary and destructive. Your eyes, your bones, your soft tissues...all will eventually fall prey.

/Enbrel user 5 years
//Humira 6 years
///Still have psoriatic arthritis and uveitis.  It's a daily fight to keep my eyesight.
First Son has UC, and lost his entire colon. My other son is HLA B 27-. Healthy as a horse.

The kicker here is that almost anyone can get this gene antigen activated. A bad cold, the flu, a STD....your body goes into hyper defense and never shuts down.  Game over, or at least changed. I won't mind being in a wheelchair as long as I can keep my eyesight.

Wait, it's been 5 years since his last win? Feels like it was more recent than that, unless I'm confusing Lefty with Bubba Watson.
