Swing analysis from Torrey Pines (1-25-2013)
Thanks! Share it with your friends!
Tiger is all about torque. That stress on the body is what causes him to be so good to watch and so likely to be injured.
Like Rafa in tennis. You cant play when injured so the swing must be subservient to the likely injury caused by the movement.
That is what gets a lot of people in trouble…lag. Most people would emulate these moves by the pros and the results are slices or blocking balls to the right. Most amateurs should try to straighten the right arm once reaches waist heights in order to close the club face. Took me over 14 years to figured that out.
It look so easy. Will be nice if you are back on the course soon Tiger.
Yet ANOTHER great slow mo vid showing that all the best to have ever hit a driver do NOT hit it on the upswing. The amount of instructional vids from Pro’s saying that you should hit it on the way up is crazy.
bad set up. his hands should be in front of the ball. shaft and left arm in straight line. he used to have a nice set up when he was young. look at the good drivers: mcilroy and nicklaus are examples – straight line.
I’ve driven some of the best cars BMW has to offer and they are the Ultimate Driving Machines on the road…on the golf course it’s Tiger Woods! I love you Tiger! Masters 2015 Masters 2015 Masters 2015 Masters 2015 Masters 2015 Masters 2015 Masters 2015 Masters 2015 Masters 2015 Masters 2015 Masters 2015 – Tiger Woods Champion
During his mid and late downswing (as he approaches impact) his head and eyes are pointing at a spot about 12 inches “behind” the ball. He’s hitting it blind. How does he know where the ball is if he’s looking so far behind it? This is much different than a player like David Duval or Carl Pettersson who are looking at least 12 inches in front of the ball at impact. It also seems like Tiger’s mostly using his upper body—I’m not seeing any lateral movement with the lower body and I don’t think he’s using a traditional left hip clearing move while the arms remain completely passive and the left arm freewheels into impact a la Hogan. I know historically Tiger’s lower body was so explosive that it would race ahead of his hands and arms and he’d get “stuck.” Is this a new method of minimizing lower body movement in the downswing and swinging more with just his tremendous upper body core (abs, shoulders, neck, arms, wrists, hands)? Or is it just at this “face on” view I can’t see how much his hips are opening? I know most Pros hips are completely open at impact. World class flexibility and strength to be able to hit your 7 iron 200 yards with an extra stiff dynamic gold shaft.
Is Tiger left eye dominant?
wow nice putt!
Way too much talking. You could cut your word count in half and say the same thing. Likes to make himself feel good i guess -_-
That is a STUNNINGLY good impact position…right through his entire body! That is as good as I have ever seen…and I have been playing, watching or teaching this game for 44years….Imagine Tiger Woods as a LONG and STRAIGHT driver of the ball with his course management, iron and short game !!!!….will injury stop us??? good God Almighty I hope not!!
That is a ton of club head lag. Great swing, too.
‘from the konica minolta swing vision camera, AND this yellow line” haha
By the way RYHELLMS, Care to post YOUR swing on YOUTUBE? I will if you will……
Nice jump shot. What a silly and ridiculous way to swing a golf club. And of course, Kostis loves it. Oy….
Nice! Thanks for posting so soon. You have a great collection going!
You have no idea what you’re talking about, but good luck with your complete ignorance. Come to the range or course any time and bring your wallet.
RYHELLMS, Is Tiger your buddy? Did WAXGOLF hurt your feeling or something? I don’t know Mr. Watts, but he has done work with the golf swing that MANY good players and LDA competitors have acknowledged as quite progressive. Personally I had to find a better way to swing after my back went out (because of a faulty move I had) and now not only am I LONGER and more accurate….I’m pain free. He knows what he is doing and his swing is DAMN good also! I’ve seen them ALL…And WAXGOLF can do it!
Best Tiger move. much more old stylish (ala Hogan – Snead)
HA!!! 40 times better than your “perfect swing”…. I didn’t know the “perfect swing” included an overly exaggerated take back, leg lift at the top, and a crazy finish all directed by the arms. You literally took the words out of my mouth when you said “what a silly and ridiculous way to swing a golf club”, go back to your crappy range and bang a few more 265 yd. drivers for me. Thanks, Butch Harmon
thats is an insane golf swing.
