GIF of 6 Tiger Woods swings, through the years, side by side

Too bad you can't pause on a browser. The angles are probably different and not sure of they are all the same clubs, but interesting nonetheless.

Maybe Nike can make a commercial with multiple versions of Woods's on the range.

Wow that '97 swings looks so violent in comparison.

 

Agree on the potential for a cool nike ad.

What I take from this is, he's aging. Compare the 1997 follow though to the 2013 one. He's much more upright at the finish now, at age 37, than he was at age 21. That's natural - there's no way he could continue that 1997 swing as he got into his 30s unless he wanted serious back problems. Now his finish is one that takes the strain off his back.

Yeah in the '97 and '00 swings, you can see how his left pant leg reacts to the force being put into that leg extending so fiercely.  Hurts just watching it.

The 2013 gif is Haney's swing, not Foley's (I think).

You're right. Fairly sure that is his approach shot on 18 in the playoff of the 2005 Masters. Surprised the person went to the effort to do all of that and made that simple mistake. Still pretty cool, though.

Tiger Woods swing comparison year-to-year (.GIF)

Cool GIF I came across.

Thanks for merging my post into this one, I had a feeling it was a repost.

 

Has his finish changed to become higher or are those just shorter clubs he is using?  I mean shorter as in a 9 iron is shorter than a 5 iron, not necessarily by length (although the 9 would still be shorter..)

Was going to say - the '97 swing is insane!

Neat GIF. 2013 looks awkward. Love how he swung it in '94 and 2000.

How far does 97 hit it with todays technology wow that swing has some club head speed.  If I could have one of those swings above it would be 04  13 would come in 2nd.

Watching those makes my left knee hurt.
