VIDEO: Tiger Woods hitting a ‘smooth iron shot’



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.

      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?

        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.

      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?

      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

Grow the game: Women’s Golf Day is back for 2018



Women’s Golf Day wants to make 2018, its third annual event, the biggest and best yet. WGD is hoping golfers, male and female alike, will encourage their home courses to get involved and host an event.

Women’s Golf Day is a one-day event that utilizes the combination of golf. and the unique socialization opportunities it affords, to introduce women and girls to the game of golf.

The 2018 edition of WGD will take place June 5, as announced by Annika Sorenstam at the PGA Show in Orlando.
Since the inaugural WGD in 2016, the event has grown from 485 locations in 28 countries to 711 locations in 46 countries last year

“Women love to share their interests with their friends and family which is why we are encouraging existing golfers to encourage their Clubs to get involved. The feedback we receive from participating facilities is really positive because Women’s Golf Day gives them the tools to reach potential new female golfers in a really effective way,” explains WGD Founder Elisa Gaudet.

Information about Women’s Golf Day sign up and location registration can be found here.

Tony Romo cards opening-round 77 in first PGA Tour start



Tony Romo shot a 5-over 77 at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship in the Dominican Republic.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback bogeyed the par-4 13th. He double bogeyed the par-5 14th. He bogeyed 15. He bogeyed 16. That’s 5 over in a four hole stretch.

If you’re tallying at home, however, you realize Romo was even par for the rest of his round. Indeed, after opening with back-to-back bogeys, he birdied the fourth and fifth holes to get back to even par. He was even through 12 holes, in fact. All of which is pretty good for a scratch-golfing former football player.

Here’s a long putt for par from Romo at the sixth.

Talking about his poor back-nine play, particularly wayward tee shots at the 15th and 16th holes, Romo said.

“I hit two poor tee balls. Just didn’t commit to it, and ultimately just got put in a tough spot where you’re just trying to make par. I hit a lot of good shots, and they ended up a couple times in some poor spots. But you learn the golf course as you play it throughout the week.”

“I really hit some good shots, and I’m close. I had a chance to be under par pretty easily there for a while, and then two or three shots on the back nine cost me. But that’s golf.”

Romo teed it up as an amateur partner at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February. He competed in the Western Amateur last spring, missing the 36-hole cut. He has thrice tried his hand at qualifying for the U.S. Open and most recently teed it up in a North Texas PGA Players Tour event earlier this month, where he withdrew during the second round having posted an opening-round 81.

Romo tees off for his second round at 1 p.m. ET Friday.
