I suspect it's not painful at all but fairly comfortable (unless people just mean "painful to watch", then who cares?)

 

 

 

Jack's putting and Wie's are the same and different:

 

Both looked like they have their eyes just about straight over (but not past) the ball.  That's the same.

Both are close to the ball.  That's the same.

I can't speak to the take away and follow through.

 

Wie has straight legs (likely her base is a lot more stable than Jack with his flexed knees.). 

Wie's spine is straighter (likely her rotation is a lot more predictable and square than Jack). 

Wie's spine is more clearly parallel to the ground than Jack (likely much better control and repeatibility)

 

seems like Wie took a page from Jack and came up with a better version, IMHO - everything about it is a better base and cleaner lines

 

sacrilege, I know

Cleaner line is not what I would call it but "I like that homes I like that"(training day reference).

I've always had bad flexibility in the hammies.

 

yoga has shown me how hard it is to do that stretch AND keep that spine straight - it's a really good stretch.  easier with a curvy back for sure....
