Yet the focus is on the man, who is hosting the $ $3.5 million event, Tiger Woods, whose theme right now is ‘Back to the future’. He has a new swing teacher, Chris Como, recommended to him by his longtime buddy, Notah Begay. He says he has a stronger body and understands that you no longer need to belt the ball, but play smartly and according to your age.

And what of his swing, which is the most talked about topic in golf. Calling it a ‘new, but old’ swing, Woods has been referring to some tapes in his house. Tapes that go back to his amateur days. He gushed, “Actually, it’s pretty interesting trying to find a VHS recorder. I have a lot of tape like that.
Fortunately, my mom is of age where she has that still in the house. So that was very beneficial to look at some of the old tapes,’ Woods said. It all happened when Notah first recommended Como and then set up a meeting. Como had some ideas and thoughts and that excited Woods, who after parting ways with Sean Foley did not have a coach.

Woods said, “I was very surprised and very excited to see what he (Como) felt my swing should look like, and should look like going forward.  Because that was very similar to the vision I had. It is new, but it’s old.”
