New shoes, same driver for Tiger Woods

Published

on

On Monday, Tiger Woods posted numerous videos of his swing during the opening of Bluejack National, his new course design in Montgomery, Texas. It’s not the first time we’ve seen videos of Tiger’s post-surgery swing, but the videos did have us at GolfWRX yelling “What are those?!” And not in the Internet-trend kind of way, but rather legitimately asking “What are those shoes he’s wearing?”

Here’s a closer look at the new Nike shoes, which we currently know nothing about, but they do look awesome.

From a club standpoint, Tiger is using the same Nike driver from last year, a Nike Vapor Speed TW with a Matrix Ozik TP7HDe shaft. The irons are the same, too, Nike’s Vapor Pro.

Tiger’s 2016 post-surgery swing certainly will never be confused with his swing circa 2001, we know that. What matters now is when Tiger is plotting a comeback to professional golf. Based on his willingness to show off his capabilities, it could be soon.

    It’s not about the swing. We know he can hit the golf ball. It’s all about course management with using the tools you have. His swing (tools) are different now, so with that means that his course management will be different. That will be the factor to determine whether he is still a threat or can still win on tour. NOT what his swing “looks like”.

    I love how he’s not dipping down into impact as much. He’s keeping a much more level head through the hitting zone. This will help his back…..or hurt it much less!

    I like the swing. I hope he keeps that tempo. I can see him having much more longevity with that relaxed swing

      It looks more like a swing for an older guy trying to protect his back. The knee snap is not good. He needs to take it easy and embrace his new journeyman status.

    Those clubs are too much for him now, including the irons. He needs to switch to much more flexible shafts, so that he can flick at the ball more with arms and hands than tax his body by trying to throw all that stiffness and weight around.

      You have got to be kidding… He isn’t a 30 handicapper

      and professional golfers don’t “flick” at the ball with their hands. The best swings on tour have barely any club head movement. All body rotation. You can’t be consistent swinging with your hands unless your name is Bubba Watson

    It would be awesome if y’all could get some more info on the shoes.

    Smart money says change the driver. Or hit the ball with the shoe. That may work. The driver sure isn’t.

      The last couple of tournaments he hit more than 60% of his fairways. But whatever….

        What is he ranked like #970 in the world? The swing is not that good. Too steep and he lifts his head. He needs to go back to Butch or Hank. Also shit it down til 2017 or 2018 to avoid further injury.

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.

Tiger Woods battles terrifying deep-sea creature, wins

Published

on

With four tweets since July 21st, Tiger Woods is exposing himself on social media in a way we haven’t seen.

And with his latest tweet, he’s…exposing himself in a way we haven’t seen.

A shirtless-and-swimsuited Woods appears holding what he purports to be a lobster (but what looks more like a monster of the deep sea).

Nothing like it, indeed.

He’s lucky to have escaped with his life after battling that horrifying crustacean. Spiny lobsters, apparently, don’t have claws, but somehow that doesn’t make them any less terrifying, as they look poised to impale you and carry you off to their reefy lairs.

Not sure how big the beast in Woods grasp actually is, but it pales in comparison to this 14-pound creature from your nightmares.

14_pound_lobster_caught_near_Bermuda_0_48217534_ver1.0_640_480Anyway, Woods has been on something of a grand tour of late it seems, taking in a friendly version of El Clasico in Miami and posing with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

All of this is good to see. It was two months ago that Woods entered rehab following his now-infamous Memorial Day arrest for impaired driving.

What this portends for his future on the golf course is unclear, but you’d assume the 14-time major champion is feeling pretty good if he’s free diving after monsters of the deep.
