Tiger Woods was unable to take part in “his” tournament the way he would have liked, on the course, but the Tiger regularly came to give his news and comment in the studio to the delight of viewers. During his appearance Saturday on the set of NBC Sports, the official broadcaster of the PGA Tour, Tiger Woods spoke about his upcoming participation in the PNC Championship with his son.
Have you ever seen Rory finish a swing out of balance? No never. This is a lesson my father taught me. Dan Hicks, one of the famous voices of golf across the Atlantic, even asked him to read the “promo” of the tournament live where it is obviously a question of the presence of Tiger and Charlie Woods.
Tiger smiled and admitted that he would have preferred to put on his glasses to read the text. He was then asked to talk about his son’s swing and explained that he told Charlie to take inspiration from Rory McIlroy’s swing rather than his own.

“Don’t copy me, copy Rory’s swing. Have you ever seen Rory finish a swing out of balance? No never. This is a lesson my father taught me. Being able to keep your balance until the ball is stationary.
You can hit as hard as you want, but it’s essential to keep your balance.” During those 45 minutes, Tiger also acknowledged that Charlie was much better than a year ago and had already “overdriven” him on their Medalist course not far from his Florida home.
For Tiger the day is looming when his son will manage to beat him on 18 holes. Eldrick Tont Woods (born December 30, 1975), better known as Tiger Woods, is an American golfer.
