Hollywood script writers couldn’t have conceived the storyline that has been the reality of Tiger’s life for the past decade. Unless you’ve been stuck in a cave for the past few weeks, you’ll know that Tiger Woods won his 15th major and fifth Masters last month. Woods’ victory was the perfect finishing touch to an incredible recovery that has seen the former World No.1 progress from barely being able to get out of bed just over two years ago to holding off some of the world’s most talented golfers down the stretch on Augusta National’s undulating, uncompromising course. It was an achievement that, quite rightly, has been celebrated around the world. Even in their wildest dreams, Hollywood script writers couldn’t have conceived the storyline that has been the reality of Tiger Woods’…

why tiger’s new coach is a lesson for us all

Tiger Woods has worked with some of the game’s most esteemed coaches during his illustrious career. Butch Harmon, Hank Haney, Sean Foley and Chris Como have all guided the greatest golfer of a generation at various points, but none of them would take any credit for his Masters win, a victory arguably more impressive than any of his previous 14 major triumphs. It’s Tiger’s new coach who deserves all the acclaim for this momentous comeback win. Tiger Woods’ new coach is… Tiger Woods. “I don’t have a coach at the moment,” says Woods, who has been flying solo since parting ways with Como in 2017. “I’ve been going about doing this on my own since my back was fused. I have been working hard to relearn my own body and golf…

tiger’s sidemen

BUTCH HARMON 1993-2004 Major wins: 8 | PGA Tour wins: 34 Harmon was coach for Tiger’s emergence into the professional ranks right through his most prolific period, including the infamous Tiger Slam. Woods won three US Amateur titles in a row under Harmon’s expert guidance before turning pro, and eight majors plus 34 PGA Tour titles afterwards. HANK HANEY 2004-2010 Major wins: 6 | PGA Tour wins: 31 Haney coached Tiger into a flatter swing with less wrist-hinge, before resigning at the 2010 Players Championship. His tell-all book, The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods, garnered criticism for revealing information that breached the unspoken confidentiality code between player and coach. SEAN FOLEY 2010-2014 Major wins: 0 | PGA Tour wins: 9 Foley helped Tiger increase his distance off the tee while turning him into a fade-biased player.…

why tiger’s swing is better than ever

Before his Masters victory, Tiger Woods hadn’t won a major since 2008. That year, he started just seven events, winning five of them (including the US Open) and finishing second at the Masters. His worst finish of the year was a fifth-place. He’d been world number one almost uninterrupted for a decade. His swing was regarded as better than textbook. Now in his mid-forties and the wrong side of multiple back surgeries, surely it’s unfathomable to think his swing could be better now than it was a decade ago? “It’s time that professional golf does something serious about slow play. Five hours 30 minutes to play 18 holes on a course without rough is way too long.” Edoardo Molinari is trying to speed up play by publicly sharing the European Tour’s…

five burning questions for… rickie fowler

Things are pretty good for Rickie Fowler. He has won five times on the PGA Tour and twice on the European Tour. He’s spent most of the last five years inside the top-10 in the world. He’s finished in the top-10 of majors 10 times, including three runner-up finishes. He’s a cumulative 40-under par across the last 10 majors held, a total only bested by Brooks Koepka. The only problem is that he’s never won one, meaning he has the unenviable billing of probably the best player without a major. Having recently turned 30, Fowler tells GW that his time will come. 1 Do you feel more ready to win a major now than you were a few years ago? Definitely. Last year was big, playing well on the weekend and on…
