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

Published

on

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…

    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.

    No value added. Insignificant.

    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…

Last year, Cleveland Golf introduced Grandpa Jamie (Canadian long drive professional Jamie Sadlowski), the pensioner who can bomb it 350-plus yards effortlessly, in a viral video which garnered over four million views on YouTube.

Well, Grandpa Jamie is back, and he’s been pranking unsuspecting golfers on his weekend getaway in Orange County,

This time, however, he’s brought along Uncle Jake (9-time PGA Tour winner Peter Jacobsen), and you can check out all of the fun and games the two got up to while catching poor unsuspecting golfers off guard in the embedded tweet below.

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.
