Tiger Woods' new home taking shape

March, 7, 2011

Describing the practice facility at his new Jupiter, Fla., home as "phenomenal," Tiger Woods wrote on his blog Monday that he will be able to hit shots to it from his second-story studio.

Woods said he will be moving to the new home -- which has been under construction for several years -- "pretty soon." Woods designed the practice facility and oversaw its construction.

"It features four greens, six bunkers with different depths and kinds of sand, a video center and a putting studio," Woods wrote. "If no wind is blowing, the longest club I can hit is a 7-iron."

(In his blog, Woods linked to a photo of the practice facility.)

Woods also commented on the appointments of Davis Love and Jose Maria Olazabal as U.S. and European Ryder Cup captains, the learning center that is part of the Tiger Woods Foundation, and the state of his game.

"As I've said, my swing is still a work in progress, and it takes time to get comfortable with everything," he wrote. "It's hard to implement all these changes. I just have to keep moving forward. I'm light years ahead of where I was at the end of last summer. The biggest thing is understanding what shot to hit and how to adjust my ball flight. Thanks to Sean Foley, I have a much deeper understanding of how to do this than ever before.

"When will I win again? Whenever it happens, it happens. I'm just going to keep trying to progress."

Woods is playing in this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral, a venue where he has won three times.
