Check out Tiger’s new golf swing and prototype “TGR” blade irons

Published

on

The “smooth iron shots” tour continues! Tiger Woods tweeted a video Tuesday afternoon showing the 14-time major champion and Kevin Chappell hitting iron shots at an exhibition for Woods’ TW Invitational (a fundraiser for the Tiger Woods Foundation).

Woods appears on the range with Chappell hitting what looks to be a stock mid-iron shot.

Interestingly, as ESPN’s Bob Harig tweeted

So, regardless of what type of “partial golf activity” he has been cleared to engage in, the video is the second morsel of swing footage TW has tweeted since October 7.

Kevin Roman, Director of Instruction at Monterey Peninsula Country Club, where Woods’ event was held, captured some additional swing video.

Roman also snapped this awesome shot of Woods’ bag, which features some things we haven’t seen before, to say the least: new prototype irons with TGR stamping and logo, TaylorMade PSi and UDI irons. Many thanks, Kevin!

    Really admire Tiger and hope he can play again but isn’t it time for him to try a cavity back iron> He played ping irons in his teens why not go full circle and maybe regain some youthful magic

    Mark Steinberg won’t be happy until Tiger is paralyzed or dead. My god some people will do anything for a buck. Run away, Tiger! Save yourself!

      It seems incredibly naive or just plain stupid that you think Steinberg is controlling Tiger and making key decisions for him.

      What are the specific things you can point to in order to give some credibility to your ridiculous assertion.

    Apparently, after all Tiger is still using with Miura irons. Tiger really never left Miura irons from Titleist 680 days. Exact same shape. It never changed.

    A lot of Tiger hate on here. He doesn’t bad after multiple back surgeries.

    Tiger’s does more for golf than anyone regardless of what he brought upon himself with his off the course BS.

    That first shot was hit so thin why do they keep replaying it. The second one was pure, but he (Kevin?) was talking over it.

    That’s just an unstamped VR Pro Pitching wedge. Good clubs.

    Looks like the ’02 Nike blade. Very clean and very nice forging.

    Hope he can stick in it long enough to make some events and play the farewell tour for us. Swing looks so robotic now, it’s tough to watch. Get better Tiger.

    So Tiger thinks he’s Prince now? I hope his doctors are in full CYA mode. The court jester has lost his mind.

    The ‘TGR’ irons are classic muscleback blades.
    Whoever provided him with the irons simply didn’t stamp the forgings with their OEM logo… obviously at his request and expense.
    The rest of the long irons are TM stock stuff.
    Anything on the driver and fairways? I suspect the driver is a TM M1/2 and the fairways are his old trusty Nike junk.
    Tiger’s WITB looks like a hodge-podge of clubs with no recognition factor.

Former caddie Steve Williams raves about Tiger Woods’ victory at the 2019 Masters

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ ex-caddie, Steve Williams, has spoken in glowing terms concerning the 43-year-old’s latest victory at the Masters, a win which Williams believes will “re-energize” the sport.

The New Zealander, who was speaking to ESPN’S Bob Harig, admitted that though he doesn’t watch the sport regularly on TV anymore, he made an exception last weekend, and feels how his former boss’ victory at Augusta National will do wonders for the game.

“Now that Tiger has come right back there again, winning a major championship, possibly putting Jack’s (Nicklaus) record in play again … it just re-energizes the game . . .  It’s absolutely awesome.

He’s the only guy who can energize the game like that. All those kids who were watching had to think it was fantastic. And so what he’s done is a remarkable achievement. It’s so positive.”

Though Williams and Woods’ high profile split in 2011 was less than amicable, Williams credited the 15-time major champion’s “amazing achievement” in coming back from the point where he was on the verge of retiring to claim his fifth green jacket down to “pure guts and hard work.”

“Given the fact that two years ago he stated that he was unlikely to play competitive golf again, or was seriously doubting it – he wouldn’t just say that in jest, There would have been a lot of truth to it. For him to actually come back full cycle to win a major championship… it’s just an incredible story.

 It’s an amazing achievement of pure guts and hard work for him and just a true indication of what he is made of. It proves again what an amazing athlete he is. It’s just an amazing achievement.”

Williams also believes that the passing of golfing legend Arnold Palmer in 2016 had a significant impact on Woods, and while writing for the Australian site The Players Voice, the New Zealander stated

“I’m thinking that when Arnold passed away there was a realisation in Tiger that golf had lost a guy who was the most popular player ever. It was about a year after Arnold died that Tiger started his comeback after his back surgery and I think he may have decided that with his second chance he wanted to be remembered the way Arnold was remembered. I do think the passing of Arnie had a change in that respect.”

Steve Williams caddied for Woods between 1999 and 2011 and was on the 43-year-old’s bag for 13 of his 15 major championship victories.

Couple to name son after Tiger Woods after husband wins a bet with his wife

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ victory at last week’s Masters had a significant impact in the sporting world, and its meaning will forever be remembered in the household of a Dallas couple who are set to name their child after the 15-time major champion.

Trey Little, a lifelong golf fan, drew up a contract the week of the tournament (as you do), which stated that “If Tiger Woods wins the Masters this week, I (father) get to have the option of naming our son (coming September 2019) Tiger Little.” which his wife, Denise, signed.

Speaking to the NY Post, Little talked about the reaction of his wife and himself when they realized that Woods was about to win the event last Sunday.

“On hole 18, we realized, ‘Wow, he’s really going to pull this thing off. This whole thing started almost as a joke, then it turned into something really real, really quick.”

The name may not be the easiest to live up to, but with the child’s middle name to be Julian, Trey has all the bases covered, joking “He could always go by T.J.”
