Yes, often a long way into the cabbage and those were the weeks he was nowhere to be seen. Hoylake was the classic example, 71 irons off the tee and gave up so much distance to the rest of the field but he kept it in play and won comfortably.
But his long game was excellent with those irons off the tee.

He also went 72 hole at St Andrews
Without going in a bunker, so v’accurate then as well.

Yes it was but he was giving up a lot of distance off the tee and could still win but when his driver was misbehaving he struggled.

He hit his 3 wood on occasion. Wasn't all irons off the tee.

I've heard a few pro's say he was the only player in the field good enough to be hitting 4 irons into greens which is why he could leave the driver in the bag.
