The latest video series, ‘A Round With Tiger’, was filmed in February, just before Tiger Woods suffered a terrible car accident. Tiger gives casual golf tips to celebrity guests in the series and the first episode featured Jada Pinkett Smith. 

In the first episode, as Smith started her warm-up on the range, Woods gave her some tips on grip and swing. And at one point, he even got her to make a birdie and celebrated with a fist bump. The 22-minute episode, directed by Peter Berg, moved along in a relaxed manner as Smith and Woods can also be seen talking about life away from the spotlight and many other fascinating things. 

Golf Digest posted the video with an official note, “This series was filmed on February 22, 2021, the day before Tiger Woods’ car accident. We are sharing this content with the blessing of Tiger and his guests. We thank everyone for their involvement and wish Tiger a continued speedy recovery.”

What does Tiger think about this series?

“Shooting this series was some of the most fun I’ve ever had filming on the golf course,” Woods said about the series. “Each guest brought a unique perspective on life, both professionally and personally. I’m always inspired by others who are considered the best at what they do and learning about how they made it to the top.”
