Wow. At his age and what his body has been through that is incredible.  Which makes me wonder what his real club head speed was in his 20s.

Keep in mind he always used steel shafts/steel head and a really soft ball too.

Started a new game today with some buddies. You have to pick one of the texts Tiger sent to an adult film star and or pancake house waitress, text it to your significant other and screen shot the response. We call it “Tigering”

Results have been......surprising......

I'd have to imagine with the distances he was pulling off that he was averaging mid to high 120's occasionally cresting 130+.

He hasn't seen numbers like that since at least 2009. Wasn't he doing 180 tops when we last saw him? Still got nothing on Cameron Champ who averages 190+

Yep: https://www.pgatour....stat.02402.html

When they paired him with Sadlowski at the Safeway his ball speed was higher than Sadlowski's at certain points. Fair to say that Champ is longer than anyone who's ever regularly played on tour (not that he regularly plays on tour yet).

Any bets whose back is “spasming” 10 tournaments in Tiger or DJ? Gosh at this rate Tiger will be challenging the LDA guys.. Wonder if he is working on those wedge yips that appeared a few times at the Hero..

Lindsey Vonn was quoted today saying that Tiger is stubborn. Swinging this hard is another example of Tiger being his worst enemy. I think DJ only was at 182 MPH at Kapalua.

Tiger had the yips at Phoenix. And that was overseeded rye.

Thinned wedge be carrying mach-5, cruise missle, destructive power. Took out some guys tool shed once with one.

Yep, although the sample size is not big to say the least. His top speed number of 193.22 is the highest ever recorded on tour. Though I'm sure Sadlowski is capable of something even higher.
