Tiger Woods makes first snooker cue swing since February in online video

Tiger Woods made his comeback at the PGA Championship in August

Former world number one Tiger Woods took his first swing from a snooker cue since February in an online video on Monday.

Woods, 42, posted a 21-second video on social media of a round of golf that he has recorded using the target of a snooker cue.

The 14-time major winner’s personal life fell apart following his car crash in Florida in the early hours of 29 February.

But he managed a three-under-par 69 at last week’s PGA Championship.

Woods became distracted by the red ball and didn’t hit the target, after which he took to a snooker table in the video, called a “putt 6”, to practice on.

However, the American did hit some of the target shots and talked about the concept of “sophisticated positioning” in order to make the trick shots.

“I did hit a little bit of the snooker ball and it felt good,” he said.

“I was focused, using my head, my hands, and I used different positions.

“With the better structure in my game, maybe I can use that to apply some more discipline.”

In his post on social media, Woods said he would post another video from his practice sessions with “more classic motion” in the next few days.

He also said he wanted to make a link to his work with a new coach to “draw the connection between what I am seeing now and what I have tried before”.

Woods had been working with Paulina Gretzky, the daughter of NHL star Wayne Gretzky, but later split with her.

Gretzky said in an Instagram post that she was still friends with Woods and encouraged people to judge him on his own merits, rather than “jump to conclusions” and create “fake drama”.
