How did they make THIS mistake in “The Match” promo poster?



The organizers of “The Match” may want to allocate some of the $9 million purse to hiring someone to proof their ads.

Take a look at this Western-style poster Tiger Woods tweeted.

Notice anything? Take a closer look at Tiger’s TaylorMade M3.

That’s right, folks. Or rather, it’s wrong. Whoever designed the poster is either a non-golfer or superb prankster, because that’s a left-handed driver.

Phil Mickelson was quick to spot it.

Of course, an alternate possibility is that Woods will be swinging a left-handed driver right-handed to make a possible victory over Mickelson in the Thanksgiving weekend showdown that much more impressive. Perhaps both players will be playing with drivers suited for the other hand? OR maybe they’ll be playing with each other’s driver? That must be it…Or it could be a DELIBERATE faux screw-up to generate additional publicity. Hmm…

    What does this have to do with DJ’s new putter?

    The mistake? Putting it on in the first place never mind PPV. I’m sure I’ll have laundry to do that day.

    Now this has came to light I suggest collecting printed ads if there are any. Wonder when they will change them. Sorta reminds me of some of the Beatles Abbey Road albums if you are old enough to rember

    Ben, the poster is not the only thing that needs proofing. It’s ‘whomever’ not ‘whoever’.

    Tiger has to play with Phil’s sticks, thought everybody knew that. Seriously, the whole idea is kind of a joke so just for fun, they should have to play one hole out of each other’s bag. I’d tune in for that.

    This thing is a farce. I wonder why some comments are not posted. Is someone at WRX offended?

    Big deal, I wish they were playing with their own money. Now really don’t think much of the match.

    Probably a photo from when he played Nike clubs, and somebody (badly)photoshopped in the TM.

    It’s a prankster message, saying that it doesn’t matter what he uses, he can’t keep it in play anyway

    I assume the article is tongue-in-cheek, because – of course – promotional materials are generally designed by graphic designers. The chances the particular designers know anything about golf are down to population percentages; if they do play at all, it’s probably once a year…

    You’ll see the same goofy mistakes in any area you inspect; eg, people in ads and movies talking into the wrong part of a microphone (and often not plugged in)… You’ll find tons of reversed images everywhere in advertising.

    TaylorMade probably paid for it to be wrong, trying to show off that Twist-Face

    Um, Tiger wore blue today and has before. Try googling Tiger Blue Shirt images

    Two more errors…. Tiger never wears a blue golf shirt, red, black or white but never blue…. and the Nike swoosh logo is replaced by his TW logo…

      Maybe never in competititon. But NEVER?

      Dude, he’s literally wearing a blue shirt today in the northern trust..

Which Air Jordan model should Nike release as a golf shoe next?



According to GolfMagic, Nike’s Air Jordan III golf shoe took off from the foul line and soared right out of stock.

Per the site: “Nike launched this new model back in February… but you’ll do very well to get your hands on either them right now as they have sold out on Nike’s website. However, a Nike spokesperson has since commented saying “more is on the way.”

Grammar aside, this is interesting.

Now, it wasn’t long ago that all golf shoes looked like this.

And with all due respect to the Etonic Dri-Lite of yore, and giving wide berth to the traditionalists in the golf footwear space, the transition to sneaker-style golf shoes is cool, isn’t it? I mean, even if you’re monumentally swagger impaired like myself and could never pull the “Js on the fairways” look off, it’s intriguing, no?

With that in mind, and recognizing the demand for the 3s, I thought it’d be interesting to consider what the next Jordan golf shoe ought to be.

Here are my finalists for the next wide release (yes, I know Nike made Ray Allen custom 11s and MJ has had a few customs). Many of these are new colorways of classic (OG) models. I’ve tried for a range of styles and picks from across the Jordan timeline. Images via the excellent catalogue on the Jordan website.

Air Jordan VIII

Looks like Tiger is exploring some innovative solutions to his putting woes…



Tiger Woods was 39th in strokes gained: putting in 2018. Historically an excellent putter, Woods was hot-and-cold with the flatstick, even benching his soulmate Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

It looks like Woods may have an ace in the hole for the upcoming season, however, with respect to his green reading and putt sinking. Check out this video posted to his Instagram from the Tiger Woods Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula earlier this week.

Good thing the USGA is restricting the use of green-reading devices and technologies, because this kid looks close to cracking the eternal mystery of the perfect marriage of line and speed for every putt.

Cool stuff, though, isn’t it? It’s also cool to see Tiger so genuinely excited about his “mentee.”

We all know the story of how, after September 11, Woods re-evaluated his charitable endeavors and began to conceive of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. He’s spoken passionately about the students who have made their way through the various programs in the past, and there’s no doubt he cares deeply about the TGR Foundation’s efforts, but seeing a thin slice of that reality is awesome.
