It might not be the best idea to wear an automatic wrist watch playing golf, though. The winding mechanisms on these are sensitive to the huge rotational forces good golfers produce. It'll look great on his wrist, but he might bust a main spring on the downswing!

I wonder what Tag Heuer is thinking now...

I'm guessing they offered a sliding scale based on his performance given it's a five year deal.  If he does well, he makes more, if not, Rolex is protected.  Smart move on Rolex's part if this is what they did, always want to buy low.

I had Tag Heuer before Tiger hit the golf scene and I'll still have one when he hits the Senior (oops, Champions) Tour.  His endorsement means nothing to me, but it's probably good for golf.

Either way, good that he has a new sponsor I guess



I don't think many would agree that TAG makes far better watches than Rolex but they are a popular brand with a nice racing heritage. Rolex is in a different class IMO and as far as golf is concerned Rolex is the top name in the industry. Nicklaus, Palmer and Player all endorsed Rolex. It's the top watch brand in the world. AP seems to be an upcoming brand in golf and they are leagues above either Rolex or TAG.

Another myth!  This is simply not true.

I would rather have a TAG on my wrist than a Rolex.

Only because I prefer the style of TAG over Rolex

it's like a suit kinda... gives an impression.

i think this was well played by rolex, pick up a superstar (fallen or not) at a low price, and good for tiger.... those child-support payments must be a big pain in the butt.

I have both and I would say from a style stand point TAG by far but performance would be Rolex. The Rolex just seems to run smoother and involves less time on the winder. I will say for the price Tissot makes probably the best over all watch in terms of bang for your buck.

He either doesn't own a winder or flat out just doesn't take care of it. There is no way a battery operated watch should ever out perform a quality automatic.

Back to the point I think the deal looks good for both parties Tiger needs to play good golf to get paid and Rolex is protected.

    • I’ve been using Live paired with my iPhone without major issue the last 10 rounds or so. I’ve been starting the device, then pairing to the app so I can use the GPS if needed. Occasionally, the app will not know what hole I’m on for distances or I have to manually go to that hole. However, at the end, I’m able to edit the round on my phone with no issues. I then can open the round on my iPad and edit further if needed.
    • The videos can be interesting and instructive, but they can also pull you away from what is best for you to work on to improve. You can think of them as quick fixes and it can actually hurt your progress. Best advice is to work with a good instructor and practice smart to improve.
    • The speaker is referring to weight toward the toes or heel when they say front and back. As for the second part, the player on the right is a little more vertical at set up and early extends on the downswing. Early extension means you straighten up sooner than you should losing hip rotation speed and power. The right elbow can also get stuck behind your side.There are several ways to work on this, but without seeing your swing, it would be hard to comment. 
    • I'm watching this video and he mentions "he got himself a little more out onto the front of his feet" and "he's got himself more centred in to back of his feet" in the other comparison https://youtu.be/S8dkDx8YVkI?t=242  Does that mean he puts more weight on the front of his feet than the back?   One more question: how do you create more space for the right arm during impact as mentioned here? He's more tipped over which allows this , I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8dkDx8YVkI?t=280 Would reducing how much your right forearm can rotate clockwise help with this, duringthe end of your backswing?
    • Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,   ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone ,  sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense) If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))
