Tiger Woods took part in a clinic yesterday – and naturally everybody went nuts.
It came just days after the 14-time major champion uploaded a video of ‘smooth iron shots’ on Saturday, which signalled progress from the pitching video he posted on August 31.
Then, he tweeted a video of himself in action at a Tiger Woods Invitational exhibition with Presidents Cup team member Kevin Chappell, appearing to be striking full irons shots.
Here’s a look at it from a rear-view angle.

These videos – two in four days – prompted tweets of hope and excitement that a comeback could soon be on the cards.

Phil Mickelson has been enjoying some fun moments with fans in the gallery recently. A few weeks back, there was his hilarious interaction with a young fan and, at the Safeway Open, there was this after finally finding a fairway.

Rory McIlroy didn’t waste any time starting his three-month break from golf, jetting straight from the Dunhill Links to Italy for a holiday.

A very relaxing time in Italy for Rory, but the same can’t be said for Edoardo Molinari. Ahead of the Italian Open, he was tasked with making a hole-in-one from 500 balls.
Did he achieve it? Watch the video to find out.
