Fore Long Island

Long Island golf courses and golfers mixed with a splash of PGA and other pro tours.

Tiger caught between old, new swings

 

      Tiger Woods said that he was caught in transition with that duck hook off the first tee, the shot that went out of bounds, led to a triple-bogey 7 and took the air out of The Barclays.

        He is working with coach Sean Foley on developing a new swing, which has worked well this week and had him in the lead midway through the second round. But the old one crept back in on the first tee, and the result was like something you'd see on a public course when the weekend golfer hadn't had a chance to warm up.

         The ball went out of bounds. Woods admitted "It probably cost me a chance to win the tournament."
