Woods hired him as a consultant late that year as he talked about a “new old swing” he would try to employ.Como said in a text message that Woods’ “electrifying play” in the Bahamas was the byproduct of “a lot of hard work over the last few years while fighting through injury and pain,” and he felt there was plenty of enthusiasm for next year.“When our professional relationship began, I was asked to help Tiger utilize his own instincts and feel while playing pain free,” Como said. “I think we’ve accomplished that and I’m proud of the results. Tiger is ready to have an incredible run in his career. I’m eager to watch what will be one of the most exciting sports comebacks of all time.”ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ After 30 years, Johnlu Koa still doing ‘hard-to-make’ quality breadslast_img read more
