Much like Couples or Els, his swing appears very smooth and easy, but the mechanics are near perfect. The timing between the core rotation and release of the hands causes his club to "unload" at the perfect time in the arc. I have stood and watched him hit balls at the range and can hear and see the phenomenal acceleration through impact. It looks effortless and easy to do, but it takes a lot of work to get there.
