SOUTHPORT, England (AP) – Paul Azinger believes that a plan by Tiger Woods to make his swing better has backfired on him.
Azinger said Thursday on a conference call for ESPN that Woods has made major changes to his swing in a quest to improve. He says the result is that "Tiger has actually gotten a little bit worse."
Azinger is a former PGA champion and Ryder Cup captain who will be in the booth for ESPN at the British Open next week. It will be the first major championship appearance by Woods this year. The 14-time major champion was out three months after back surgery.
Woods has changed his swing four times with three coaches. He has said over the years that he’s always trying to get better.
