Ladies and gentlemen, clean your screens and fire up that V1 swing analysis software: We’ve got video of Tiger Woods’ golf swing as he prepares to make his return at the Hero World Challenge.
“Professional storyteller” (vomit) for Golf Digest, Brian “I need a higher resolution profile picture” Wacker originally posted this video to Instagram. The PGA Tour, with its traditional progressive attitude toward intellectual property, must have tapped Wacker on the shoulder to pull the video. But, because #internet, it’s been widely disseminated.
