Tiger Woods' new golf swing was revealed to the world of social media last night, and his former swing coach Hank Haney pounced all over it.
After more than 15 months out of the game through injury, Woods is making his competitive return to the Tour at this week's 18-man Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

Upon viewing Woods' driver swing, Haney commented:
When Haney was questioned on his expectations for Woods this week, albeit in a high-calibre, 18-man tournament, he was confident of an impressive performance.
Justin Rose, himself coming off a seven-week break through a back injury, partnered Woods earlier in the week at Albany and enjoyed what he was seeing out of the 14-time major champion.

“We’ve played today in a 20-mph plus breeze and it’s quite an unforgiving wind, but the quality of Tiger’s play has been pretty good,” Justin Rose said from the Hero World Challenge, an event that benefits Woods’ foundation and will be the host’s first tournament since the Wyndham Championship in August 2015.
“If [Tiger] wanted to test his game then these conditions, given as tough as they are, is a good test,” added Rose. “He’s clearly driven the ball very, very well.”
It will be no easy task for Woods to contend for the Hero World Challenge with the likes of Rose, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Hideki Matsuyama and Brooks Koepka in the field.
Woods has been paired with Patrick Reed in the opening two rounds.
