How to Throw a Club by Top 100 Teacher Charlie King
Is Tiger hindered by his club-throwing technique?
A LOT HAS BEEN MADE of Tiger Woods’ club-throwing tantrum in the first round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, the second of four FedEx Cup Playoffs events.
While many are fixated on whether Tiger should or shouldn’t toss the offending Nike stick—and what it means for the PGA Tour, what Earl would think, and the future of sportsmanship—I believe there’s an underreported aspect of the story: club-throwing technique.
I bring you (and you too, Tiger, if you’re reading) Charlie King, a top 100 teacher from the Reynolds Golf Academy. King, the author of The New Rules of Golf Instruction, demonstrates the importance of a running start, a three-quarter backswing and proper release:

Look, Tiger is going to throw his clubs from time to time. We know that. A little instruction could go a long way. (And so could his club.)
Stricker Takes FedEx Cup Lead
Mr. September, Steve Stricker, birdied the last two holes at TPC Boston to win the Deutsche Bank Championship by a shot and bypass Tiger in the FedEx Cup points race. Tiger barely missed a top-10 finish, closing with an 8-under 63. This week the playoffs move to Cog Hill in Chicago for the BMW Championship.
