There's a Kevin Stadler posterior joke there, somewhere.

My lesson is your lesson a2_wink.gif   This is a good drill to do for a few reasons but you don't really need a big towel lol  For O'Hair I think it's good because it helps him keep the head more steady.  He tends to translate a little on the back swing and gets his alignments rotated too far to the right.  So the towel helps him "stretch" more on the back swing in order to load his arms up and back.  Notice how the entire right arm isn't pinned to his side, just in the upper/arm pit area.

 

This drill prob works for Vijay because it helps his swings feel more "around" on the downswing/followthrough and keep the upper right arm on the body.  Vijay can get the right arm disconnected too soon, elbow too far behind him.  Vijay also tends to play a cut or at least that was 95% of the shots I was seeing him hit during two range sessions.

Awesome stuff, can we expect more of this from future tournaments? It would be awesome if you could get footage of them swinging during practice rounds.

Thanks, yes will be doing a few more of these in the future.  Did you see the coverage from the US Open and Vegas?

I think the best swing is Ryo Ishikawa. It looks like all the check points are perfect AND it is smooth as silk.

Yeah it's pretty good.  Couple others good ones if we're looking at solid alignments are Noh and Oberholser.  Obviously they are all good swings ;-)
