And straightest rear leg in the game :)

 



Was that what you meant? Yeah, then the Norman clip wasn't a good example.

Way too much lateral movement for anyone who doesn't have the talent to consistently get the timing right, imo. Not sure if you were showing this as a model or just to show his "jumping". I have fought lateral movement my whole life and now focus more than anything else on making sure I "swing inside the barrel"

Using the ground for power, ("jumping"), hitting the ball first, (compression), hands in, (utilizing angular momentum) are pieces all players use to hit the ball far.  Here is Greg Norman pushing his hips forward, tucking his butt, hands forward at impact with a driver, and straightening the legs, jumping using the ground.  Don't think he struggled with hitting it far enough :)

Is Bubba Watson a Stack and Tilt Player? I have been watching the Shawn Clements videos and Bubba appears to be a single plane and a stack and tilt. He has characteristics of both imo.

I don't know enough about his swing to say, but he hits the long ball and has very high GIR stats whenever he's in contention. An interesting, albeit polarizing, character indeed.

Bubba is not SnT cuppedTin. SnT isnt only one plane and centered backswing. Most pro's have these characteristics in their swing.

Correct, sorry didn't mean to confuse anyone, Bubba does not work with Andy and Mike.  He does demonstrate an important piece S&T advocates, losing flexion in the rear leg.  Norman illustrates another piece of the lateral shift, legs straightening to hit the ball far and high.  These are power pieces, spine and legs are acting like a lever to launch the ball.  Not going to see any long hitters that stay bent over with their torso on the finish.

Will MacKenzie, who finished T7 in the Farmers Insurance Open yesterday at Torrey Pines is a Stack and Tilt tTour Player, under the instruction of Mike Bennett and Andy Plummer, the authors of the book and DVD set on Stack and Tilt, which I have been studying for the past year. Eric Axley, who has one win & 5 Top Ten finishes in 147 events ($2.7 million) is also a student of Mike's and Andy's. Charlie Wi ( 21 top 10 finishes in 211 events--$9.7 million) is another. Troy Matteson ( 2 wins, 22 Top 10 finishes, $9.1 million) is another. I think Aaron Baddeleyite ($16.3 million) is still under some S&T instruction. But the big one (although his first tournament this past weekend wasn't good) to think about is that an article in Business Insider, May 13, 2013, says Sean Foley is teaching Tiger Stack and Tilt. You can find the article at businessinsider.com. If you have more questions or would like to talk with a 10 handicapper who has been learning S&T for the past year, email me at FDRMURPHY@ME.COM.
REGARDS, FRANK

No, he isn't. :P

I'm using pieces of S&T. I keep most of my weight on the left side which helps me to stay centered over the ball and compress it. It also gets me in perfect position (shaft lean). My power has increased!
