Tiger Woods: Rehab Process 'More Painful Than Anything I Have Ever experienced'

Tiger Woods: Rehab Process 'More Painful Than Anything I Have Ever experienced'

In his first interview since his car accident in February, Tiger Woods said he’s focused not on his long-term playing future but a more immediate goal: Walking on his own.

“This has been an entirely different animal,” Woods told Golf Digest, with whom he has a content partnership. “I understand more of the rehab processes because of my past injuries, but this was more painful than anything I have ever experienced.”

Woods suffered serious injuries when he was involved in a one-vehicle crash in Southern California on Feb. 23. Woods had multiple open fractures to his lower right leg and needed to have a rod placed in his tibia and screws and pins inserted in his right foot and ankle.

Updates on his progress have been limited. On April 23, he posted a photo on his Instagram account of him on crutches and an air cast on his lower right leg, with the caption: “My course is coming along faster than I am.” Several PGA Tour players who live in the South Florida area have visited Woods and noted his upbeat demeanor.

Mina Harigae Appreciates Everything About Her Heritage and Life

Getting a good game is never a problem. “There are about six or seven tour players who are members out here,” Mina Harigae said of her home club, Superstition Mountain just east of Phoenix. “We have a lot of really good players.”

The views aren’t bad, either, with fire-red sunsets against rocky faces of the mountain range and desert vegetation waving its muted colors and sturdy disposition in a hot and steady wind. “I love it out here,” Harigae said of the area where she lives. But breathtaking views and an appreciation for the grandeur of the world around her have always been a part of Mina’s life. She grew up in Monterey, the coastal town midway between California’s borders with Oregon and Mexico, and a place John Steinbeck described as “the interval between day and night when time stops and examines itself.” Seeing the Pacific waves against the rocky shores of the Monterey peninsula brings man closer to the abstracts of existence on earth: things like beauty, poetry, peace and God. It was in this setting that Mina first picked up a golf club at the Bayonet and Black Horse Club.

“I went to a junior clinic out there,” she said. “I didn’t really know anything about golf, but I wanted to get out with kids my own age. That’s where the event was, so, yeah, that’s where I was first introduced to the game.”

Control Your Ball Flight and Maximize Distance in the Wind

Successful tee shots are going to be key to playing well at the 103rd PGA Championship. Back in 2012, Rory McIlroy used his driver to attack the Ocean Course and win the championship. He was not only long off the tee, but also able to control the ball flight in very windy conditions. Listen to PGA Coach Steve Scott as he describes two very simple keys that will help every golfer rip it like Rory.

A pivot is power in golf and nobody better exemplifies this than the longest hitters on tour. Steve’s simple strategy for a bigger pivot, or turn is to get the hands as far away from the body as possible in the backswing. Watch as he stretches his swing arc on the practice range at Kiawah.

Power is certainly important, but as Rory showed us, controlling your trajectory will be equally essential. During the downswing Steve describes a feeling of bowing that lead wrist toward the target. A controlling move that lowers trajectory and increases control.
