Yep we looked at the best players from the past 100 years and came up with this
There is a difference between observing commonalities of the best players and trying to model yourself after a player. I would advise against the later because then it becomes about making the swing look like a certain player or hitting similar alignments in the hope that "If I look like so and so, I'll hit it better". When probably all the player needs to do is work on one thing (their priority piece), understand their tendency and go play better golf. I like using tour players as examples for certain pieces, as a basis for comparison and understanding component relationships.
