Tiger Woods hits more shots at golf clinic, shows off vintage club twirl
Tiger Woods participated in a golf clinic on Tuesday afternoon and his speed, balance and technique looked as good as ever. At least, when it comes to his club twirling. Check out this form!
That's some vintage Tiger twirling right there.
But seriously, the swing didn't look half bad, either. Woods was on hand with fellow PGA Tour pro Kevin Chappell for his Tiger Woods Invitational clinic at Monterey Peninsula Country Club. Here's another clip of Woods hitting a shot after Chappell:
Unfortunately, that video cut off before we had a chance to see another Tiger club twirl. But if Woods is posting it, he must be happy with how his swing is coming along -- although, he didn't appear to take any swings with the driver.
In recent weeks, Woods has shared a couple videos. First, a slow-motion clip of him hitting a pitch shot, and then another slow-mo video from Saturday of him hitting a "smooth" iron shot. At the recent Presidents Cup, where Woods was a U.S. assistant captain, he said he was happy to be back at a golf tournament and at times, was seen grabbing other players' clubs. But that week he also admitted he could "definitely" see a scenario in which he doesn't return to pro golf.
Woods, 41, last played competitively at the Dubai Desert Classic in February, withdrawing after the first round. He underwent a fourth back surgery in April.
Last year, Woods returned from an even longer injury layoff at his Hero World Challenge in December, however, he hasn't been added to this year's field yet. We'll keep monitoring his latest comeback, though, one swing -- and one club twirl -- at a time.
UPDATE: More on the club twirl front, with Woods calling his shot, "a high draw" "left of the flag" this time:
