Tiger names the swing that he’s told his son to copy, as Charlie’s remarkable swing speed is revealed

Published

on

Despite having to withdraw from his own tournament, it was always going to be the case that Tiger Woods would make his presence felt at the Hero World Challenge.

Already this week the 15-time major champion has questioned the new OWGR system and called for the resignation of Greg Norman from the LIV organization.

Each day, during the telecast, Tiger joined the NBC booth to discuss much of the current status of the event — the improving young players such as Cameron Young and Tom Kim — as well as playing in the wind, and his current state of health.

Son Charlie, who will join his father at the PNC Championship on the 17th of December, was also in the booth, listening to Tiger eulogize about his playing partner’s driving prowess. According to analyst Paul Azinger, Charlie, who is just 13, has recorded a swing speed of 117 mph, an average that would have him sitting next to Jordan Spieth and Tommy Fleetwood in the current table for PGA Tour ‘club head speed’.

Tiger also commented on an important piece of advice he told Charlie: “Don’t copy my swing.”

“Have you ever seen Rory off balance on a shot? No. Not ever,” Woods said during Saturday’s third round. “You can swing as hard as you want on a shot, but you need to have balance.”

With Tiger still on the way to full recovery, maybe Charlie dominates the pairing in Orlando, although after the ‘miracle’ victory at the 2019 Masters, it would be hard to rule the old man out of yet another phenomenon.

As Tiger told both Azinger and co-analyst Dan Hicks, he has passed on advice he received from his own father, Earl. In life, as well as golf, “You get out what you put in.”

As the video below, posted by CBS, shows, Charlie is doing just fine.

    I’m sorry but there’s a whole load of reasons he should be copying his dads swing over Rory’s

      I’m sure you know more about Tigers swing than he does, so Charlie should probably listen to you instead of his father, Right??
      Nobody knows more about the best golf swing for Charlie other than his Dad, Tiger!

Published

At this week’s Saudi International, Bryson DeChambeau surprised golf fans by putting TaylorMade’s Stealth Plus 2 driver in the bag. Bryson has been a long time staffer at Cobra Golf and it was a shock to see the 28-year-old with a driver from a different OEM to begin his season.

Per Dan Rapaport of Barstool Sports, a Cobra rep has confirmed that Bryson is simply out of contract with the brand, but that the two parties are currently in discussion about this year and the future.

In our forums, our members have been discussing the changeup from DeChambeau, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • FifeRiviera: “Honestly Cobra woods are the single most underrated pieces of equipment on the market.”
  • Lacey Underall: “Just my guess – everyone on LIV will be an equipment free agent soon.”
  • KimmerBH: “Never been a fan of Bryson but I do miss seeing him play every week along with some others that went to LIV. He was definitely entertaining to watch, I’ll give him that.”

‘Sums up my life in the golf industry’ – Paige Spiranac on polarizing Phil Mickelson tweet

Published

on

After a long break from Twitter, Phil Mickelson was extremely active on Twitter yesterday. His resurgence resulted in the golf world reacting for most of the day.

Paige Spiranac used one of Phil’s tweets to “sum up” what it was like to be a female in the golf industry.

The tweet seemed to be a joke, and to be clear the tweet Phil shared wasn’t directed towards Spiranac, yet some Lefty detractors weighed in calling the tweet “misogynistic.”

The full context of the tweet is here:

We can be sure that as long as Mickelson is this active on Twitter, the app will be buzzing with golf personalities and their reactions.

‘The hypocrisy is astounding’ – Phil Mickelson takes aim at RBC for missing logo at Saudi International

Published

on

This morning, Cameron Young played the first round of this week’s Saudi International at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club.

As noticed by Twitter user “EPatGolf”, the 25-year-old PGA Tour player was missing the RBC logo that is typically on his sleeve.

Patterson speculated that the reason for the missing logo was RBC’s reluctance to be associated with golf being played in Saudi Arabia.

Never a stranger to controversy, Phil Mickelson weighed in on the topic, accusing RBC of hypocrisy.

Mickelson has been extremely active on Twitter lately and replied to a Danny Woodhead tweet just a short while ago about a potential LIV vs PGA Tour match with Tiger Woods and Phil as captains, even managing a little dig at his long-time foe.
