So last week Phil went pretty viral in the golf community, not just for another rules violation, in which he called on himself, but it was the impromptu chipping lesson he gave Larry Fitzgerald during the Pro-Am. The golf world went nuts over it, and rightfully so because it’s the truth, and really does improve your chipping.

If you have as much problem around the greens as I had coming into this golf season, this is probably not the first video you have watched where Phil has given this advice (Phil’s Secrets of the Short Game), but to see him just do so in this nonchalant setting was awesome to watch. The best part about this advice, is that I have recently put it into practice, and I feel like an idiot for having been chipping wrong all these years. My short game has now went from 10 footers for par to now 3-4 footers, which I still end up missing, which is a whole other issue I am having, but it is not because of my chipping. While this video was awesome, and we just got news of the potential Tiger vs. Phil $10 Million Match, Tiger could not let Phil steal the spotlight.

Folks, this is the definition of golf porn for your boy right here. I consider myself a Club Twirl Connoisseur, and Tiger is my inspiration, so you can only imagine how I am feeling right now. First of all, if you haven’t been twirling with the right thumb this whole time, what else have you been doing? Maybe I have just been watching Tiger Woods twirl a club for so many years that I have just been trained to do so, but I thought that was common practice (unless you’re doing a lil reverse twirl, which is best utilized around the green). Second, the twirl to flick is what makes Tiger the GOAT club twirler, and it’s not even close. I have now fallen into a Youtube rabbit hole of Tiger Twirls, and it may just be my favorite YouTube rabbit hole of all time, with Tom Brady highlights and conspiracy theories being close 2nd and 3rd place.
Finally, we can all admit that while Phils lesson will make us better golfers, Tiger is teaching you what really matters, and that is the #TourSauce. Don’t care if you just threw a dart on Sunday at TPC Sawgrass, or piped your drive with the boys on a Saturday afternoon at your local muni, the club twirl will always play, as long as you listen to Tiger’s advice. So next time you are at the range practicing the tips that Phil gave Larry Fitzgerald, don’t forget to throw a couple club twirls into the mix to practice that muscle memory.

I love the Albany hat. I played there once and ran into Henrik Stenson by the clubhouse, and Matthew Fitzpatrick on the putting green, like it was just another day at the club with the boys #HumbleBrag. Also, my Twitter Avi was taken on #18 at Albany, unfortunately I do not have footage of the beautiful club twirl after I pumped my drive down the middle.
