Tiger Woods may not dominate the PGA Tour like he did in his early-2000s peak, but his game still commands an immense amount of respect from his fellow pros.
In an interview on Subpar, a new weekly GOLF.com show hosted by former PGA Tour pro Colt Knost and his golf pal Drew Stoltz, Jon Rahm gushed about Woods’ form, specifically Woods’ still-awe-inspiring precision with his irons.
“He’s still the best, by far,” said Rahm, the world’s No. 3-ranked player. “Anytime we go do a photo shoot with TaylorMade, he whoops our a— with irons. It’s not even close.”
Rahm recalled a shoot at The Floridian last year when he, Woods and handful of other TaylorMade staff players were firing balls to a couple of different flags on a par 3. Rahm said the variety of shot shapes and ball flights Woods exhibited left his peers gobsmacked.
“You can’t compare,” Rahm said. “None of us get close.”
