Tiger Woods Is Back in Black; Gary Player Approves

Tiger Woods is dressed in all black for his big return to competitive professional golf at the Hero World Challenge.

 
From a TW hat to his new Nike TW ’17 shoes, and everything in between (including his new Taylormade M2 driver), it was all black.

It’s not exactly the outfit you’d expect a Tour player (or anyone) to wear in the hot tropical climate of the Bahamas – where some star golfers were last seen playing in nothing but a bathing suit.

SI’s Alan Shipnuck approves of the all dark attire, practicality aside, calling it a “bad ass” Johnny Cash slash Westworld look.

The legendary Gary Player reminds Shipnuck that somebody else is famous for wearing all black – and he was a golfer to boot.

As for Tiger’s first tee shot… He pulled it a bit.
