NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Golf Digest and Discovery Golf today announced the release of the second season of the exclusive masterclass series "MY GAME: TIGER WOODS." The 10-part season launches globally on August 20 and sees the greatest player of the modern era take viewers through his Shotmaking Secrets for the first time.
In 2019's Season 1, MY GAME: TIGER WOODS – INSIDE THE MIND OF A CHAMPION, viewers were given a 50,000-foot view of Tiger's overall thoughts on his game, delivered candidly by the golf icon himself. The incredible success of Season 1 was followed by an insatiable fan outcry for more — more time, more detail, more instruction on how the most successful player in modern golf hits his legendary shots. Season 2 sees the 15-time major champion dive deep into the technique behind his incredible shotmaking skills and sharing the secrets to what has made him one of the best players of all time. Presented in clear and memorable terms, viewers will learn invaluable lessons that they can apply to their own game.
MY GAME: TIGER WOODS – SHOTMAKING SECRETS was filmed on course at The Dye Preserve in Jupiter, Fla. during June 2020 with strict Covid-19 production-safety precautions in place. The series will be available to U.S. audiences for free on Golf Digest Schools, the leading digital instruction platform in the game from the world's No. 1 golf media brand.
Golf Digest Schools will present MY GAME: TIGER WOODS – SHOTMAKING SECRETS alongside its subscription service that provides golfers unlimited access to more than 350 video lessons and practice plans to improve their game. The release coincides with the launch of the new Golf Digest Schools app, which will offer an enhanced experience for players to engage with the best instructional content and network of instructors anywhere. Users can choose to watch via the app or at www.golfdigest.com/tigerwoods.
Speaking on the new series, Tiger Woods said: "Shooting My Game Season 2 with Discovery was a great opportunity to dig deep and offer insight into how I approach and execute the different parts of my game. I've never revealed my thought process behind my shotmaking technique and course management in such detail before, so I am excited to share it with players and fans for the first time.
"It's been a tough time for everyone around the world these past few months, and it's fantastic to see players of all levels getting back out there on the course. I'm excited to partner with Golf Digest and Discovery to bring this series to millions around the world and help people enjoy the game even more," Woods said.

What better way to improve and ultimately shoot lower scores than by taking tips directly from the greatest golfer of modern times?
