See I am not sure I can agree about Butch's swing or Haney's swing methods are the cause for tearing up Tiger's knee. I mean honestly if that is case, Tiger Woods is absolutely screwed for his future. I just don't see "how" their particular swings are the cause of his knee issues, and how Foley's swing methods are so "different" from the motion and torque of the body that is doesn't affect his left knee anymore.
My father, who knows nothing of the S&T methods, made an interesting comment about Tiger's post 1st round comments. He said the termniology Tiger kept referring to made it sound like he was in a cult or something, LMAO. I went on to explain to him that there is a community that follows the S&T methodologies and that many traditional golf analytics don't agree or respect it, but that the terms he is using refers to items related to S&T.

I don't understand S&T enough to condemn it or defend it, but what I do know is that Tigers swing with Harmon and Haney tore his left knee up to the point it is today so I don't see either of them as Tigers answer. I'm pretty sure Harmon doesn't wany anything to do with Tiger now and Haney at one time might have been a great swing coach, but seeing his show on the golf channel has caused me to lose some respect for him.
