And he did so after switching from a 9.5-degree driver to 10.5 degrees.
"As we all know, loft is your friend," said Woods. "The reason why you hit a 3-wood straighter is obviously because it's got more loft. That helps. My release has changed over the years and I just need a little more loft now."
Make that a lot more loft. When Woods was a rookie in 1997, he played a driver with 6.5 degrees of loft.
"...now I'm up to 10.5," he said of his Nike SQ Dymo prototype driver. "I hate to see when I get to 40 how it's going to be. I may have to get a 46-inch driver and a 15-degree lofted driver. But it is what it is. Technology has changed; the ball doesn't spin as much as it used to. You must have more loft than you used to play."
