Tiger Woods: My Swing Is “Fixed” (Again)

On Thursday, Tiger Woods will start his first tournament since a fairly disastrous Masters, where he tied for 40th in his worst finish ever at Augusta as a pro. Tiger took the unprecedented step of avoiding a pre-tournament press conference with the real media at this week’s Wells Fargo Championship, opting instead to answer hand-picked questions from social media — and his big message is it’s all about the swing.

The swing was broken at The Masters, but Tiger is sure it’s fixed now. “At the Masters, I was kind of struggling with my ballstriking a little bit,” explains Tiger. “[Swing coach] Sean  [Foley] and I fixed it. It had to do with posture. My setup wasn’t quite right, as well as my takeaway, so we worked on that.

Foley also had positive comments about Tiger’s newly corrected swing. “He’s hitting it so pure right now,” Tiger’s coach said during Wednesday’s pre-tourney pro-am.

Despite Tiger’s fixed swing, Rory McIlroy is the favorite to win this week, not Tiger. Maybe some people aren’t buying the fix yet? Diane Pucin of the LA Times thinks some of the questions Tiger was purposely ducking by his social media stunt would have included “what is making him so stubbornly committed to making a swing change that doesn’t seem to be working or if he’s read Hank Haney’s book yet or whether it annoys him that his potty mouth is always broadcast or whether he has regrets about drop-kicking a golf club at Augusta.”
