Everyone has an opinion on Tiger’s “new” golf swings, which have appeared on the internet over the last couple of weeks. But here’s one that’s worth paying attention to: Tiger’s former swing coach Hank Haney chimed in Monday afternoon, and he seems to like what he sees.
“That’s a swing he could win with,” Haney posted on Twitter in response to a Golf Channel tweet showing Woods’s driver swing from Sunday night. He added, “it’s not across the line and stuck inside coming down, a little stiff looking but it’s good enough.”
Exactly when we’ll first see the new swing in competition — and evaluate its effectiveness — remains anyone’s guess. Woods could still play in his own tournament, the Hero World Challenge, Nov. 30-Dec. 3, but is more likely to attempt a return sometime in 2018. Until then, bring on more videos!
