Here’s Why Tiger Can’t Go Back to His Old Swing

As ESPN’s Bob Harig summarizes neatly: Speaking on Tiger Geno Auriemma’s “Holding Court” podcast, the 14-time major champion spoke honestly about why it’s not as simple as going back to his 2000 swing: “I can’t. My knee is trashed from all those years of playing that way. I’ve had four operations on my knee. Forget when my back was bad; pre-surgery and pre-back problems, people were saying the same thing: ‘Why don’t you go back to 2000?’ I can’t; my knee’s trashed from playing that way, I can’t do that anymore. I have to look for a different way.” said Tiger. I think everyone kind of saw that coming, that swing couldn’t last. Too much torque for the Tiger, and we know when his knee hurts, he gets all into the pain killers. Check out his old swing below.-TO
