The Links: Why Tiger Woods' swing is on point right now
Tiger Woods' swing, Michael Jordan and Rory McIlroy in the Medalist Club Championship, and the course for Rio 2016 is under way.
Strong read on what Tiger Woods is doing right with his swing:
It's no secret that the left-going-left miss gets into Tiger's head. His goal has been to play a cut, and play it consistently -- eliminating the left miss. But he's gone a step further, essentially taking the left side of the golf course out of play. At Doral, he was under control, playing a cut all weekend. His misses were right, which is exactly where he wants to bail out. (SB Nation)
