What has been a great year of golf has concluded with Tiger Woods return to tournament golf for the first time in 16 months. As a swing instructor I saw many good things that he has done with his swing. He led the field with 24 birdies but also led the field with double bogey’s. Regardless of his finishing 15th out of 18 players it was great to see him back. I hope it means he will be able to play a complete season in 2017. Hideki Matsuyama won the tournament to finish the year in great fashion, winning four out of his last five events!
With Jordan Spieth winning the Australian Open, Henrik Stenson and Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy having great years, 2017 should be another great year to watch tournament golf.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
