LA JOLLA, Calif. – Tiger Woods unveiled a new set of clubs Tuesday morning ahead of his 2019 debut in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.

Woods’ TaylorMade irons are an updated version of the blades he put into play for the first time last season.

The new driver is a TaylorMade M5 and there’s a new 3-wood M5 in the bag as well. He’s still working on specifics for a new 5-wood and is using the same model he had in 2018. He didn’t make any changes with his wedges other than putting anew set in play this week. He’s also using the same Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter.

Woods brought out the new sticks for a practice round with Jordan Spieth Tuesday morning. The duo teed off on nine at the South Course and played the back nine ahead of Woods’ scheduled afternoon media availability.

It’s Christmas in July for the golf world Tuesday as the 17th version Demo Day takes place at the annual PGA Merchandise Show.

It is expected that 1 million golf balls will be hit during the event at Orange County National Golf Center in Winter Garden, Fla. Approximately 200 hitting bays and 100 companies and manufacturers are displaying their wares. The setup is spread along an oval driving range across the 42-acre facility. It even includes a golf cart testing track.

In case you couldn’t make it in person, here’s a look in photos:

About 2,435 miles away from Winter Garden, Tiger Woods unveiled his first bag of 2019 in San Diego prior to a practice round ahead of the Farmers Insurance Open. Woods posted a photo on social media, along with the caption: “Always fun to put new toys in the bag. Excited and ready to get 2019 started. #TeamTaylorMade #FIO19.” Woods will be carrying some new TaylorMade issues at Torrey Pines. Woods has swapped TaylorMade TW Phase1 irons for TaylorMade P7-TW irons. He also added a TaylorMade M5 driver, along with a 3-wood.

This post from U.S. Kids Golf proves you can never be too young, or too adorable, to start playing golf.

The post Tiger Woods honored with Ben Hogan Award after overcoming ‘serious injury’ appeared first on Spring Field News Leader.

Tiger Woods has won the Ben Hogan Award, given by the Golf Writers Association of America to a player who has overcome a physical handicap or serious injury to remain active in golf.

Woods played in 18 PGA Tour events in 2018, in addition to the Ryder Cup and Hero World Challenge. Woods ended a five-year winless streak with a victory in the Tour Championship and nearly won the FedEx Cup in the process. He also finished second twice and had seven top-10 finishes. His remarkable comeback came after his fourth back surgery in April 2017. Woods underwent three previous procedures on his back that had significantly delayed and limited his career.

“I’m grateful to receive an award named after Mr. Hogan and to join a group of truly inspirational individuals,” Woods said in a release. “I feel very fortunate that I was able to return to a normal life with my kids, and I understand what a privilege it is to play competitive golf again. I would like to thank the fans for their unwavering support and the GWAA for this honor.”

Woods begins his 2019 PGA Tour competitive calendar this week at Torrey Pines in San Diego.

The GWAA also named Johnny Miller winner of the 2018 William D. Richardson Award. It is given to a person who has made an outstanding contribution to golf. Geoff Ogilvy is the recipient of the ASAP Sports/Jim Murray Award given to a player for his or her working relationship with the media.
