Thanks! Share it with your friends!
He got that weight going to the target beautifully all while maintaining spine tilt. It appears he’s playing the ball up in his stance with a long iron off the tee. Textbook.
As he comes into impact his head is pointing and his eyes seem to be looking at a point about 18 inches behind the ball. He’s hitting it blind. I guess his hands and every other part of his body knows where the ball is. Impressive. Was this another stock fade? Or a draw? Clubface looks square at the top.
I agree with you John that all great ball strikers appear to lose height during both BS and DS, but I wouldn’t prescribe ‘dipping’ to generate power. If you look carefully at the slow mo’s they are bracing the lower body; Newton’s third law of motion applies for this move, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. By applying force to the ground through the lower body, the ground acts in an opposite fashion allowing the golfer to generate more power.
@85milesb when you set up, the key is to bump your hips a few inches towards the target, thereby slightly tilting your spine, in it’s entirety, away from the target. Then turn your shoulders around your spine thats on that angle, with your head staying in the same general area. watch tigers swing again and notice the tilt at address then how he turns around it, ending up “centered”, but not too left.
I was told by a club maker that when Tiger was younger he played a 3X S steel shaft. But that was like 15-20 years back. Hard to say nowadays. He creates so much lag it would have to be as stiff as a broom stick.
Definately looking better. Certinely more centred rather than s&t, he will be very good soon
@earthshine2k I disagree-all the players I teach shift far too much weight to the right. The reverse pivot comes because they simply cant get the weight to the left foot. Although I’d never teach S&T weight shift (or lack of), it should feel like you are making a S&T weight shift. I believe correct weight shift is the key to a good swing.
I thought he used x100s. I’ve used them, they’re stiff but I’d say easy for someone of his strength.
@theupandaround finally someone who actually knows what they are talking about 🙂
WHOA btw how stiff is his steel shaft for 5 iron his club bends a lot on down swing
He lags a lot but right before the strike he somehow gets the shaft perpendicular to the ball & ground at impact
Look at any good ball striker, the head always dips in the back swing and much more in the downswing…. Its how they generate power, dipping is good and a hard move to do, look at any great ball strikers swing in slow mo and you’ll see the drop
I keep coming back to this vid of Tiger to monitor my own progress as my pivot is currently either centered, or reversed. I was wondering if anyone could possibly give me a few tips to improve my position at the top, really trying to fight my reverse pivot!
@lilmikeii24 freeze it at 0:08, that’s about as extended as you could have on the left side. the guy’s triceps are ripped tho, jeez.
@Fraserr1992 S&T is centered… one of the most emphasized pieces. Just FYI.
@thegolfacademyla1 the reality of S&T is a centered pivot. The literal interpretaion of the literature (book / dvd) lends to a REVERSE pivot. The S&T concepts are ‘feels’ that are great for players who move off the ball or get too wide. But, Bennett and Plummer sold S&T to the masses as the ‘panacea’ of stellar ball striking. Most recreational players already hang on their left side and never get behind the ball. Having them believe that’s what they SHOULD be doing is trouble, at best.
yeah i agree, they compress into the ground, all the great hitters do it to a degree. it just gets pontificated about a bit by commentators and cockheads like wayne de francsco too much…..it’s a natural thing to load into it a bit
@MrTofur99 Thanks, great explanation!
don’t like it. it looks too artificial.
@wkendhacker true but there is a such thing as too big in golf. its almost starting to restrict the swing. Dont get me wrong im a huge tiger fan. i just dont like what he’s going with foley.
Not the G.O.A.T. That would NE Jack Nicklaus if we’re talking about GOAT of golf.
face on I think
Back with the big dip / squat, how can one achieve consistency with that amount of vertical movement. These swing gurus are just hilarious. With his athletics, he just need good simple basics.
In a way s&t is incorporated in everyone’s swing, but i meant the full s&t where your left sided, the best way to swing the club is to be centred my opinion no one needs to agree 🙂
he’s almost chicken-winging the follow through by trying to move the club so far left through the ball..
