Tiger Woods doesn't know how he's getting massive clubhead speeds

Tiger Woods doesn't know how he's getting massive clubhead speeds

"I first met Arnold when I played here in the U.S. Junior when I was 15", said Woods.

Tiger Woods is coming off his best start in years at the Valspar Championship and will look to follow it up with another strong performance when he makes his return to Bay Hill.

The spotlight will be on a familiar face when the best on the PGA Tour make their way to the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Florida for the Arnold Palmer Invitational this week.

"I finally have got to a point where my back is good enough, where I can let my hands tell me what to do".

He whipped the multitude of fans at Innisbrook into a frenzy with his golf, and he did much the same to me watching on television, as I'm sure he did for you sitting in your armchair.

Past year was the first tournament held after Arnold Palmer's passing, and Marc Leishman was given a trademark Palmer red sweater in addition to the trophy (instead of the traditional blue blazer) after his one shot victory over Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman. Woods, the former No. 1 golfer in the world, is trying to return to the top of the game after suffering from injuries.




And while his putter wasn't the friendliest, he did manage a 70 and for the first time since way back in 2013, he broke par in all four rounds in a tournament.

Following four back surgeries and the better part of three years of competitive inactivity, Woods conceded on Tuesday that he's no longer capable of spending countless hours on the practice tee searching for answers.

Casey joins 2017 Race to Dubai Champion Tommy Fleetwood in the field at Wentworth in May, having formed an impressive partnership with his compatriot in the EurAsia Cup in January. As well as winning the Farmers Insurance Open, Day finished runner-up in his most recent start at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am. Was T49 here past year, but does rank 8th in both SG Tee to Green and Off The Tee, as well as 3rd in scoring average. That made him think of a dinner previous year with Martin Kaymer, who won the PGA Championship in 2010 and the U.S. Open in 2014.

Marc Leishamn: The defending champ last finished T37 at the WGC Mexico, but he does have two top 10s in 2018 and came from behind to win a year ago - so we'll not rule him out. Dustin Johnson (USA) 10.52 average pts 2.

Last week in this space, I wrote that I was tempted to take Tiger in Tampa. The highest viewership for the tournament came on between 5:30 and 6:00 p.m., the exact time that Tiger was making his furious push for the trophy. Needs to get the putter hot, as now ranks 202nd in overall putting stats. Now he needs to birdie the last to tie for the lead.
