A recently uploaded Vine video shows champion golfer Tiger Woods struggling during a recent tournament to adopt to his recently-unveiled swing.

Woods has hired yet another swing coach as he struggles to put together a run of success the past few years equaling the earlier part of his career. Early returns appear to be less than optimal.

The world's former number one golfer is in the midst of the Hero Challenge, his first tournament in four months.

Through 14 holes Thursday afternoon, Woods languished in 18th place -- a long way from his usual perch atop the leaderboard.

The flubbed chip shown in the above Vine surely didn't help.
