Tiger Back With Swing!

Tiger Woods is back at the last week’s Masters with a new swing and some renewed enthusiasm. Being placed fourth after a tie at Augusta National last week, he was recently seen in the promotion of his game and his sponsors in China.

The 14-time champion has not won a title since he returned after a five-month break cause of revelations of marital infidelity last year. But at the Masters, he made a strong comeback with four birdies and an eagle on the front nine of the final round before faltering on the back.

Woods was quoted saying in Shenzhen “I hit the ball really well on the weekend and made some shots – those are shots I know I can hit. That was fun and exciting. It’s really starting to feel pretty good. This week was a pretty good week.” Woods credited swing coach Sean Foley, who started working with him last year at PGA Championship.

During an Asian promotional tour he said “I played well and unfortunately just came up a little short on the back nine. But it was a fun front nine on Sunday. That was fun. Had a blast,” Woods said. “It was fun being in the mix. Unfortunately didn’t get it done. When I was 25, I was on tour and having a pretty good run out there at the time, won a few tournaments right about that age. And at 35, I haven’t won a thing.”

Woods feels that his putting is lacking, and his next goal is to fine-tune his short game.

Keeping his personal problems aside, he still has a huge fan following over the world. In China, hundreds of fans gathered at the 18th hole of the course as Woods wrapped up his four-hole demonstration, cheering loudly whenever he made a good shot. He also used a microphone so that the spectators present could listen to his strategy for each shot.

He also offered words of encouragement to five Chinese juniors, who played the final hole with him. He mentioned that their futures are very bright.
