WATCH: Tiger Woods left Faux Tiger Woods hanging at the Dell Technologies Championship

Published

on

In the Morning 9 this morning (obviously), we talked about the Tiger Woods impersonator spotted roaming the galleries at TPC Boston.

Many in the social media sphere have been saying things like, “The only thing that would have made this better is if Tiger took a picture with him!”

Well, it doesn’t seem like that was ever going to happen, as the 14-time major champion was hardly amused by the faux Tiger.

Credit to Instagram account @more_gear_than_game for spotting this moment during Sunday’s telecast.

Leavin’ your doppleganger hanging! That’s cold. But really, it’s unclear whether Woods had his signature Tiger blinders on and didn’t see the guy (not to be confused with his signature Tiger sunglasses, which the impersonator was wearing, incidentally), or was genuinely not amused, but it made for a great bit of television we’d be remiss not to share.

What do you think, GolfWRX members, did Woods see his lookalike and give him the cold shoulder?

    I rather have a rock solid, cold heart, savage Tiger Wood’s focused on the win for his fans, then a goo goo ga ga lady gaga Justin Timberlake crowd pleaser who’s in the middle of the pack.

    Comments above are ridiculous. When you play in a tournament you usually follow the path to the next tee and rarely look at the spectators. Odds are, tiger didn’t even see him.
    Btw, tiger took a picture with him and gave him an auto later in the day. So there you go.

    Understand Euros have hired “faux Tigre” for the Ryder Cup, after all he has a French name.

    Just a cold, cold little boy. That could have been a hilarious and cool moment and he blew it. Again.

    Look we’ve all known for a long time Tiger is not the person he pretends to be. Nothing has changed. Remember the video of him blowing off the kids at The Open.

    Eldrick just don’t get it. This stuff stays on the web FOR EVER. For ever. People will know for ever how cold he was. Even after all the apologies and supposed actions to put things right, everybody knows it’s all for show and all fake.

      Take a look. He has fans that love this kind of thing. They see everything he does, whether refusing to stop cursing on camera, refusing to sign a golf ball for charity, elbowing fans out of the way after a bad shot, etc., as some kind of superior “focus,” or whatever. As if he somehow has more “focus” than a Nicklaus, Hogan, Snead, Nelson, or Jones.

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

Published

on

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 VI

Air Jordan VIII

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

Published

on

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.
