WATCH: Tiger Woods swings driver, shows progress

The Tiger Woods recovery watch is in “full swing” and he is showing it with another clip of him working on his game. This time, he pulled out the big stick, hitting driver in what looks like a promising start to a return.

The interesting thing is that it seems like his backswing is a little bit shorter than usual. Maybe it’s just me since we haven’t seen Woods play in a while, let alone see him hit driver.

This video is his most important yet, and that’s because the driver is arguably the toughest club to hit in the bag. On top of that, power is arguably his best skill. So for him to be out there hitting the big stick is a good look for Tiger fans.

If he keeps doing what he’s doing then it wouldn’t shock me if he was ready to go by the time The Masters starts in April. It’s clear that he can swing, but can he hit putts?

I’m sure this is something he will show in another video. Since he’s had a slew of clips, there’s no doubt one for putting may be next.

It is putting that is the game changer in golf. Being able to hit big putts late in rounds is huge, and Woods is one of cluthest putters of all-time.

Obviously, putting is extremely unpredictable, because each course presents different challenges on the greens. That’s just the beauty of golf course design.

Overall though, it’s been interesting seeing Woods’ Twitter clips, as it’s giving us a quick look at how he’s progressing. As the PGA Tour season starts to heat up again in January, it’ll be interesting to see where he’s at. Who knows, maybe a surprise return is in the works.
