Tiger Woods WITB 2012

Published

on

Tiger Woods strode to another of his electrifying victories while wearing the highly anticipated Nike FREE-inspired TW ’13 shoes that will be available at retail on June 5th. His 73rd PGA Tour victory tied Jack Nicklaus’ career total at the Nicklaus hosted Memorial Tournament — on the same weekend that the Nike Golf ad for the Tiger-inspired shoe aired for the first time.
With 14 Nike clubs in his bag, Woods’ ball striking was a key to his success. Using Nike VR Pro Blades, Woods led the field in greens in regulation with 53 of 72. Woods finished T14 in driving accuracy, hitting 13 of 14 fairways in the final round.

“Every shot was exactly the shape, the trajectory, the distance control,” said Woods. “I had it all today, shape off tees, whatever club I wanted to hit, I could hit. That was fun to have it when I needed it.”

No doubt, the highlight of his final round was a challenging chip shot that he was faced with on the par-3 16th hole. After he magically holed out for birdie with his Nike VR Pro 60-degree wedge, the vintage “Tiger roar” erupted.

“I had to take a cut at it because the lie wasn’t as great,” said Woods. “I went for it. I pulled it off.”

With a one-shot lead going into the 18th hole, Woods ignited yet another “Tiger roar” after sinking a 10-foot putt for birdie with his Nike Method 001 putter. Soon after, he was hoisting the trophy.

    Thought Tiger played traditionally lofted clubs with the 3 iron at 22/23 his PW at 49 and the wedges bent up at 55 and 59. The way he hit it on Sunday he could have been using Happy Gilmore’s clubs and still won. Awesome!

    According to PGA.com, Tiger’s PW is 48 degrees. So yes, there is a pretty large gap. But there guys have their wedges bent, etc…

    think tiger uses irons with weaker ‘traditional’ lofts. heard somwhere that his pw plays 51 or 52 degrees so the jump to 52 wont be so large

    It’s probably a 9 degree gap. Many better players would rather knock down a pitching wedge than have to take a long game club out of the bag. I find that I use my 2 hybrid more than my gap wedge, and I don’t mind gripping down on my pitching wedge for those in between shots.

    I’m just getting back into the game from a long layoff. I find it interesting there isn’t anything between the PW and 56? I wonder what the PW loft is? Is this a common thing for the pros?
