“I don’t care what his goddamn swing looks like, I just want him to start playing like Tiger fucking Woods again.” -Every extremely casual golf fan who still watches golf for Tiger Woods and only Tiger Woods. Also, at this point in time, the rest of us as well.
We were spoiled for so many years by Tiger’s greatness that his inability to get back to winning majors has become frustrating. We’ve dealt with the “it’s a process” bullshit for long enough. John Q. Public doesn’t give a rat’s ass about your process and progress. We want Tiger back. We need Tiger back. Hell, golf needs Tiger back.
Who knows, Tiger’s latest comeback might be the comeback we’ve been waiting for. His back is finally 100% again — or so he says — and his new swing coach, Chris Como, apparently knows a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes to swinging the golf club pain free. Como can also swing a golf club while jumping off a diving platform better than anyone you’ve ever seen. That shit has to count for something, right? I’m guessing two to three strokes off Tiger’s stroke average.
Here’s a look at Tiger’s “new” swing. It’s balanced, powerful and most of all buttery. So, so buttery.
