VIDEO: Tiger Woods hitting a ‘smooth iron shot’

Published

on

As recently as two weeks ago, Tiger Woods’ doctors had only cleared the 14-time major champion to hit 60-yard wedge shots.

Last week at the Presidents Cup, assistant captain Woods provided no meaningful update and suggested he may never play competitively again.

Thus, the 24-second slow motion video he tweeted Saturday is manna from heaven for Tiger fans. In it, Woods plays a ‘smooth’ iron shot.

Now, we can move from guessing if Tiger will ever play again to the speculation as to when Woods could compete and the armchair analysis of TW’s action.

But hey, it’s the best time to be a Tiger fan since Woods withdrew from the Dubai Desert Classic in February.

    Good Luck and Speedy recovery,,,,,,,, but he wont be more than a side show and ticket seller until the novelty wears off and he joins the Senior Tour….

      His spine is wrecked because papa Woods forced lil’ 2 y.o. Tiger to swing a weighted club with a cut down steel shaft…. and 40 years later he has an 80 y.o. spinal column!!!

        More likely his wanna be SEAL mindset and training. He was a small guy trying to carry heavy amounts of muscle

        It’s because he activated his glutes all wrong with too many ladies of the night

    slow motion will not show his rushed transition (compared to what he use to have)……google his swing from 2001….then look his 2015 transition…..not the same and likely the reason he lost lots of power…

    Now all he needs is to be able to hit a driver, fix his short game figure out how to putt again, stop dipping, find a rhythm with some kind of tempo, improve his mental attitude, get his focus back and not break his back and he’ll be back!

      Oh, and he will have to remember which coast he is on, Atlantic or Pacific, next time he is pulled over by the cops.

    Until he fixes that wicked dip, he’ll never be hit his driver straight again. And I shouldn’t help him or anything lol

      Tiger has always had a massive drop in his swing?

      • MB

        Oct 9, 2017 at 1:21 am

        RMF, yeah, but you can’t hit modern big-headed 460 driver that way. He could do it back then in the 90’s early 2000’s when the heads were still relatively smaller compared to the 460 we have now, when he could still somewhat hit down-ish on it. Now with that dip, he’s all over the place. Not that I want to him to change his swing now, mind you, I don’t want to see him anywhere near the tour again

      He likes to ‘dip’ with his straight driver… he needs no help….

        It might have been straight before, but it’s all crooked now since he hit the fire hydrant, and since he’s been caught drooling at the wheel slobbering on dilaudid

    Probably hit the smooth 9 as far as I hit my hybrid.

      Oct 8, 2017 at 7:12 pm

      you can only hit your hybrid 150 yards? LOL

        Oct 9, 2017 at 1:31 am

        Oh you give him way too much credit, he meant more like 110 yards

    A smooth three-quarter 9-iron shot?

    • SteveK

      One of the TV analysts at the Safeway Open made the comment that most of the golfers were only going back three-quarters with their irons.
      I guess the pros can backswing three-quarters to generate enough shoulder torque for their iron shots.

        if that is 3/4s what fraction is John Rahms swing 1/24

Aaron Wise’s Winning Outfit: 2018 AT&T Byron Nelson Invitational

Published

on

The 21-year-old Aaron Wise pulled off a three-shot victory at the 2018 AT&T Byron Nelson Invitational — his first win on Tour. If you want to see the clubs he used, click here.

In addition to our Winning WITB series, where we show the clubs, shafts and specs from the winning player every week, we will also highlight the apparel they wore in our all-new Winning Outfit series. This is the first edition, and we hope you enjoy!

GolfWRX’s Resident Fashion Expert Jordan Madley says:

“First off congrats to Aaron Wise on his first win on Tour, but even more on his outfit choice for the final round. From a lady’s perspective, if you train hard, show off the hard work! Aaron, a Nike athlete neck to toe, showed off his lean physique in a Nike Zonal Cool polo, their slim-fitting flex pant, a stretch woven belt and finished it off with Lunar Command 2 kicks. The dark tones meant he was ready for war on Sunday and it worked!”

GolfWRX’s non-fashion-expert (but occasional fashion designer) Editor Andrew Tursky says:

“Wise went pretty conservative for his Sunday outfit. He was probably a little nervous trying to get his first victory and didn’t want to be too loud. Don’t get too fancy when it’s winning time; a good lesson for the folks at home. That’s not to say this outfit wasn’t sharp, though. White hat and white shoes is a great look, especially paired with the grey shirt and black pants/belt. Hits of white on the shirt with the Nike Swooshes bring it all together. Solid look here.”

Aaron’s Winning Outfit

Hat: Callaway Tour Authentic

Polo:  Nike Zonal Cooling Polo Framing (unreleased)

Belt: Nike Stretch Woven

Pants: Nike Flex Pant Slim

Shoes: Nike Lunar Command 2 Boa

In addition to a gallery of photos from Misery Hill, we have WITB looks at Chad Campbell, Sung Kang, and Si-Woo Kim’s golf bags.

While you’ll want to take a trip through the buffet line, we’ve made you a plate of some of the tastiest morsels.

Welcome to the silver side, Maverick McNealy.

Only appropriate for their to be Hogans at Colonial. J.J. Henry does the honors.

Colonial stalwart Keith Clearwater with an Acculock Ace putter in the bag.

Si-Woo Kim’s driver has an “under construction” aesthetic. Love it.

Abraham Ancer may have the only grafitti-inspired bag font on Tour.

Tidy stuff.

Sung Kang: Going dual drivers this week or testing Tensei Orange vs. Tensei White?

A.B.C. How about this new Odyssey putter cover?

Chad Campbell is still rocking the TaylorMade Burner TP 5-wood!

…and Adams Idea Black irons with a strip of lead tape. Swoon.
