Watch Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas give Ahmad Rashad club-twirl lessons

The actual drive doesn't matter. It's about how you look.

At least that's what Ahmad Rashad learned from Justin Thomas and Tiger Woods during a fun club-twirling lesson. The sportscaster shared the "lessons" on his personal Instagram.

"Not only is it irons you can spin, you can also spin your driver. I mean, he can spin his driver," Rashad said about Tiger in one of the two videos. "I can’t spin the driver."

Tiger then explained how he twirls his club. For him, the twirling power comes from his right thumb.

"First, hit the drive. Second, I start from right about here, then I use my right thumb and I spin it," Woods said.

Thomas had a slightly different approach. He uses the left hand.

"The first thing you do, is the shot doesn’t matter," Thomas said. "You just want to look cool. You want to spin it. I feel like a lot of the spin is in the left hand."

"The coolest thing is being able to spin the club after you hit the ball," Rashad said.

Rashad was clearly impressed, as he swears at the end of the video with Thomas.
