Tiger Woods gives lessons to celebrity guests in new series

Published

on

‘A Round with Tiger: Celebrity Playing Lessons’ is a new four-part series from Discovery’s Golf Digest featuring Woods giving golf lessons to some big-name celebrities.

In the Peter Berg-directed series, Tiger teaches them tips to improve their game and engages with his celebrity friends on several topics, including fatherhood and perspectives on life.

The series features actress and talk show host Jada Pinkett Smith, as well as David Spade and Dwayne Wade, while a fourth and final episode will show behind-the-scenes clips and outtakes from the filming.

“Shooting this series was some of the most fun I’ve ever had filming on the golf course. Each guest brought a unique perspective on life, both professionally and personally. I’m always inspired by others who are considered the best at what they do and learning about how they made it to the top. I was pleasantly surprised by Jada and David’s golf games, and Dwyane, who just picked up the game, made a lot of progress in the time we spent together. Each episode provides something that everyone can enjoy and learn from, so I’m happy to share these lessons and conversations with the world.” – Tiger Woods.

The content was captured in February, the day before Tiger had his unfortunate car accident, from which he is still recovering.

    This is the event that Tiger was late to attending when he got into the traffic accident that has effectively paused (if not ended) his golf career. Hopefully, this is good. It cost golf fans a few more years of Tiger on the golf course.

    Cool inside discussions on this one. I got hungry when they started grilling.

WOTW: Collin Morikawa’s Omega Speedmaster ‘57 CO-AXIAL Chronograph

Published

on

Collin Morikawa’s watch was yet again his trusty Omega Speedmaster ‘57 Chronograph after his phenomenal Open Championship win! Morikawa added a second major to his very young resume and letting the golf world know he is one of the best players in the world.

Like all of his past 4 wins, including the 2020 PGA Championship, Collin was wearing his usual Omega Speedy as he held the Claret Jug high in the English sun.

WOTW Specs
Name: Omega Speedmaster ’57 CO-AXIAL Chronograph
Reference: 331.10.42.51.01.001
Limited: No
Date: 2013 – Present
Case: Stainless Steel
Bezel: Tachymeter Stainless Steel
Size: 41.5mm
Movement: Calibre Omega 9300
Power Reserve: 60 hours
Glass: Anti-reflective Saphire Crystal
Water Resistance: 100 Meters
Bracelet: Stainless Steel
Price: $9,000

Omega has been one of the most legendary watch makers in the world for decades and have deep roots in sports. Omega has been the official timer of the Olympics as well as many other sporting events. Founded in 1848 by Louis Brandt, but the name Omega was officially changed in 1903. The Speedmaster was introduced in 1957 as a precision timepiece for racing and Collin’s Speedy pay homage to the original with its styling.

At 41.5mm the stainless steel case is easy to wear for just about any wrist size. The back of the case has a sapphire display window where you can view the Calibre 9300 movement. The Calibre 9300 is a self-winding automatic movement featuring Omega’s CO-AXIAL escapement. The CO-AXIAL escarpment was designed for better efficiency and use of the stored energy from the twin barrels. The 9300 offers the wearer 60 hours of power reserve and contains 54 jewels.

Fitted on top of the case is a stainless steel bezel, in a brushed finish, that contains a Tachymeter scale for speed timing. Inside the bezel is a black dial with a date window at 6 o’clock. The dial has 2 sub-dials on the right and left side that are uses as a 60-minute recorder and running seconds. Around the outside of the dial are large rectangular hour markers that are filled with a luminescent material for viewing in low light. Covering the dial is a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on both sides. Holding the Speedy on Collin’s wrist is a stainless steel bracelet made from solid, flat links.

The bracelet’s outside lugs are brushed while the centers are polished for a classic look. A butterfly deployant clasp brings the 2 sides together and safely keeps the watch on his wrist.

Collin has yet again proved that he is one of the great young players on the PGA Tour. Now with 2 majors under he belt, we have to wonder how many he will win with a long career ahead of him. Hopefully he can start to build a massive watch collection at the same pace!

3M Open DraftKings picks

Published

on

Welcome to the first week of a new installment of DraftKings picks from Andy Lack, staff writer and host of the Pick the Pup Golf Show, a weekly golf betting and DFS podcast.

We’ll kick things off with the 3M Open. The PGA Tour travels to TPC Twin Cities this week in Blaine, Minnesota, a course known for its generous fairways and an abundance of water hazards. That’s right, water comes into play on 14 holes at TPC Twin Cities, so avoiding big numbers and still taking advantage of scorable opportunities will be of paramount importance.

You can check out my betting tips and selections here. Now let’s get into the DraftKings slate!

$10,000 range

Tony Finau, $10,700 (Projected ownership: 22.45%)

While Tony Finau will certainly be a popular selection this week, the former Puerto Rico Open champion is my preferred choice at the top. TPC Twin Cities suits Finau’s skillset to a tee, as exemplified by a 23rd and 3rd in his two appearances here.

Finau built some momentum last week with a T15 at the Open. I expect him to keep the ball rolling in the midwest.

$9,000 range

Sergio Garcia, $9,900 (Projected ownership: 10.64%)

Sergio presents a nice leverage option at the top of the $9,000 dollar range, as most fantasy managers seem to be gravitating to the likes of Matthew Wolff, Cameron Tringale, Emiliano Grillo, and Bubba Watson. While those are all fine selections, there is no reason to believe that the former Masters champion cannot outperform any of those players.

Coming in on the heels of three consecutive top-20 finishes, I expect Sergio to play some really good golf down the stretch. Did I mention it’s a Ryder Cup year?

$8,000 range

Gary Woodland, $8,000 (Projected ownership: 3.2%)

The lack of Gary Woodland respect is downright shocking to me, and I will gladly take a flier on a proven commodity like Woodland at a fraction of the ownership of his similarly priced peers such as Luke List and Hank Lebioda. The former U.S. Open champion has still gained strokes on approach in six straight starts. I’m willing to roll the dice at sub-five percent ownership.

$7,000 range 

Lanto Griffin, $7,700 (Projected ownership: 6.13%)

I will continue to play Lanto Griffin at sub-10% ownership until others catch on. The former Houston Open winner is the only player in this entire field to rank inside the top-10 in both proximity from 175-200 yards and 200 yards plus. Lanto has finished in the top-40 at a 66% clip this year, including last week at the Open.

$6,000 range

Satoshi Kodaira, $6,500 (Projected ownership: 6.45%)

Satoshi Kodaira is often mispriced on the DraftKings slate, and this week is no different. Kodaira gained 5.8 strokes on approach at the Barbasol and three strokes off the tee, good for one of the best ball-striking weeks of his entire career.

We’ve seen him get scorching hot with the flat-stick recently as well. I don’t love to mine down here in the mid $6,000 range, but Kodaira certainly leaves fantasy managers with a lot of options.
