Hank Haney says Tiger Woods will play Hero World Challenge. Is he right?

Published

on

Speculation regarding Tiger Woods’ return to competitive golf is an escalating daily exercise at this point. And on a day when Woods was spotted at game two of the World Series and Ian Baker-Finch attested to seeing Woods playing a practice round at the Medalist (and “looking good”), his former swing coach, Hank Haney, kicked the theorizing into another gear.

Haney, on his SiriusXM radio show, had this to say.

“They’re going to toy with everybody because it’s just what they do, but he’s playing at the Hero World Challenge. He’s not going to wait until February to play again. He’s chomping at the bit. If he can be out there playing and can play 18 holes, he can play 18 holes three, four, five days in a row I can tell you he’s going to be out there wanting to tee it up.”

“He’s in great shape, he’s in great golf shape, whatever that means. It’s just a question of whether or not he has any setbacks with his back, and obviously so far that hasn’t occurred because if it had occurred he would shut it down immediately and he’s still going.”

So, there you have it. From a former Team Tiger insider: Woods will play the Hero World Challenge in December.

What do we think about this? Haney, adept self promoter that he is, putting forth a baseless claim that he knows will generate articles like this one? Could he be right?

And for hardcore Woods-will-play-the-Hero conspiracy theorists, check out the hat he wore to the World Series last night.

Yep, that’s the Albany logo. You know, the luxury Bahamas development/course where the tournament is contested.

    As long as he doesn’t have a DUI hangover because that will really mess up your swing tempo and rhythm as well as your putting touch.
    Nevertheless, all will have a good time at that exhibition ‘tournament’ and the Tiger fans will most certainly show up to support their hero even if he’s stoned on Ambien, etc..

    And Tiger was “looking good”, just like last year. Yawn. Here we go again. That rod-in-his-caboose finish pose looks painful. The Farmers will be the tell for the year, again.

    Haney is talking like he’s his coach again…what makes him think he’s going to the Hero World Challenge for sure?

The 7 best #GolfWRX photos on Instagram today (10.11.18)

Published

on

If you’re on Instagram, you’re hopefully aware that we are ‘gramming it up as well (@golfwrx). And if you’re not following us, well, that hurts our feelings more than a three-putt bogey.

Even if you do follow WRX on Instagram, however, you may not be aware that an abundance of equipment enthusiasts are hashtagging their photos #GolfWRX. We feel it’s only right to feature the best of the WRX-tagged imagery here.

And if you’re not on Instagram, well there’s no way you could see these photos, so think of this series as a handy filter for the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

Report: No tickets will be sold for Tiger-Phil match

Published

on

Sorry, fans, you’re not going to be able to buy tickets to the Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson $9 million megamatch at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, November 23.

Per a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, only a “small gathering of sponsors and VIPs” will be allowed on course. The report also indicates that, in contrast to Phil Mickelson’s promised primetime (ET) showdown, the match will be played under the Nevada sun. The official start time is yet to be announced, ditto the PPV price.

We corrected the promo graphic below to eliminate the crowd. But right-handed Tiger Woods swinging a left-handed club still needs fixing.

Woods is the -220 favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Mickelson is a +180 underdog.

WATCH: Is this the craziest hole-in-one you’ve ever seen?

Published

on

Golfers often say that getting a hole-in-one is all luck. (Keep in mind that Tiger Woods, arguably one of the most skilled iron players ever, says he has 19 holes-in-one… so maybe not all luck.) But certainly there are some holes-in-one that are “luckier” than others.

And then there’s this shot by Eddie Pepperell at the 2018 British Masters…

Definitely a great shot, and he absolutely took dead aim, but how this golf ball found the bottom of the cup is mind-blowing. It seemed to bounce off the ground, go up the flagstick, hit the ground, then side hop itself right into the basket. Wow.

But is it crazier than the bank shot?

That one is hard to top.

Or how about the all-time classic Bugs-Bunny-assisted hole-in-one by Michael Jordan in Space Jam?

Looney Tunes aside, here’s what Pepperell had to say about his hole-in-one.

He may not have seen what happened at the time, but he’ll see it on highlight reels for years to come.
