This is the best "all access" video of Tiger Woods you'll see today

December 11, 2014

What did you expect from this behind the scenes video of Tiger Woods from last week's Hero World Challenge? Footage of his FaceTime calls with Lindsey Vonn? Panicked practice sessions with new instructor Chris Como after his opening 77?

The Golf Channel video, produced with Woods' cooperation, has none of that. But it does shed light on Woods' busy week hosting his tournament while also trying to shake off the rust of four months away from competitive golf.

Woods is surprisingly upbeat throughout, perhaps because there's no mention of those pesky greenside chunks. And even though it's really only a brief overview of his week, the video offers a perspective on the 14-time major champion we don't always get to see.

Plus there's a part when buddy Notah Begay III calls Woods a nerd for his use of the Pythagorean theorem.
