Rory and Tiger flip scores, Rory shoots a 69 and Tiger shoots a 66. They share the lead. Nike is ecstatic
Yes, because.. he's Tiger Woods. I am a bit of a Tiger fanboy I suppose, but we've all seen the guy do absolutely incredible things before. Just a year ago he was winning tournaments frequently. Once he's healthy and shakes the rust off, he'll be winning again. I really doubt he'll be as dominant as he used to be, but I think he's still the best player in the world when he's healthy. Undisputably top 5. I feel like once he breaks the wall and gets one, the subsequent...
Tried to take some DTL vids by propping up my iPhone in my bag. First two swings are from last week, second two were this morning where I tried to incorporate Dufner/Hogan/etc. feel of dropping the club and tucking the right elbow on downswing. The last swing was one of the best drives I've ever hit. The two swings from last week were both push and the drive also had a slice to it. Basically just wondering if my swing plane looks correct or not. Realllly trying to fight...
Yeah, I decided to scrap this whole idea and keep working on fixing my faults with a 'regular' set up. A couple weeks ago I played the best round of my life by really focusing on key #2 and a 4th key video about hitting draws with the driver, and I realized I haven't exaggerated getting my weight forward since. At the range yesterday I noticed when I realllly get my weight forward it kind of forces an in-out path, and I was hitting pretty straight shots. I'm going to try...
Tried to play with this swing in mind today. Hit the range first, was shooting alright except for a slice with the driver. Went out on the course and it was awful. Lost distance, inconsistent ball striking, and ridiculously bad slices. Called it quits after 5 holes because I lost so many balls. Some other part of my mechanics must've fallen apart. I felt as if I was swinging a bit out to in, then maybe that I was actually swinging too far in to out, I don't know. 
Does anyone use an open stance and hit a small push-straight pattern as their stock shot? 
Lately I've had really good ball striking (for personal standards, at least) but I leave a lot of shots to the right, probably about 20 degrees or so from being straight. I feel as if I've been swinging in to out and getting weight forward, but I always leave the club face a bit open. I google searched for golfers that play with an open stance and came across this: http://golf-info-guide.com/golf-tips/the-golf-swing/try-trevinos-unorthodox-power-fade-swing/ Does anyone...

Was working on keeping my weight forward last week and noticed I looked pretty silly doing so. I stumbled across the secondary axis tilt vs. weight forward thread and realized i was shifting everything forward, so today I was trying to get my  hips forward while keeping my upper body back a bit. Also was incorporating an in-out swing path. I was lining up using the alignment that james hirshfield suggested in the 5sk high draw driver video and was hitting literally the...
