One of golf's great mysteries - besides, you know, getting the ball in the hole quickly - is how to execute a cool club twirl.

Thankfully, we now have a how-to video.

Ahmad Rashad, an Emmy-Award-winning sportscaster and former NFL player, was on the range recently with Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas and decided to give us a treat: A lesson in the art of the club twirl from the best.

Some good advice here for sure.

But then Rashad turns to Woods, who we want to hear from most as he is the master of the club twirl.

To give a further demonstration of what Thomas was referring to with Woods' flared-out right hand, here's a famous one from Woods at the 2009 Presidents Cup…

But to us, Woods' best twirl ever had to come as he fought for the title in the final round of the 2011 Masters.

For Tiger Woods, many introductions are in order

  For Tiger Woods, many introductions are in order Tiger Woods finished the Quicken Loans National with a 66 and was on his way to discuss his performance with the media when he was asked to stop for a few pictures. That's not unusual. Except on this occasion, the request came from the guy who had just signed his card."He's in my opinion the greatest golfer ever to play, so it was one of my best rounds I've ever played," Bronson Burgoon gushed after his round of 67.Woods posed with Burgoon and his caddie, and then one of Burgoon's friends stepped in for a picture.Hold on. One more.Burgoon's wife came over, and Woods delivered another big smile as if they were old friends.

It turns out spinning a golf club after hitting that perfect shot is an art form that requires lessons.

Anyway, now there's at least a bit of technical insight behind the twirl. We would fully be down for a series on this.
