Pain-free Tiger Woods is now out-driving Dustin Johnson

Share

He now sits at 1,199th in the Official World Golf Rankings, but according to @VC606 on Twitter, that number will likely be changing very soon. Whether it was hard and fast, to hold it up into the wind, or soft, or going at it a little steeper in the bunkers. The filmmaker said that the one-time golfing great was in the "sunken place" after images of the Woods and Trump surfaced. "It could be the next step, I just didn't know [when the pain would occur]".

Playing a casual 18 holes with Brad Faxon, Dustin Johnson and the President of the United States, Woods was said to be bombing tee shots further than everyone, including Johnson.

"Tiger looked great to me, " he said in an interview with Golfweek.

"Though the last there was the first one he embarrassed me on but then I did not expect him to come back if he could not give 100 per cent and unless his golf game was ready".

There's no denying, however, that the vast majority of people out there - golfers and non-golfers alike - have felt sympathy for Woods during his fight with this health issue, which reached crisis point when he was nearly hirpling around the Majlis Course at the Emirates Golf Club during the first round of the
Omega Dubai Desert Classic in
early February. "The ball flight, the sound off the club, all of it was right there". And it's been a struggle for years.

Woods too spoke to reporters after playing a practice round in the Bahamas on Sunday, reaffirming that all is well in his world.

Earlier this week, Woods revealed he was playing pain free.

The 14-time major champion underwent the procedure in April after withdrawing from the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in February due to back spasms - and, although he admitted the recovery has been slow, he is happy with where he's at now. I am stiffer [due to his lower back being fused].

"I haven't really competed in two years, really". "I'd love to be able to turn back time and be able to pop out in '99 through 2001 Tiger. I want to see it and I want to compete against it".
