Is this an exception for him or is this something he does all the time? Is it something he even thinks about in your opinion? Because it really does look funny especially the finish as if he skids out of control because of all of his speed..
I'm pretty sure he does this every time he hits a driver. Definitely not something he consciously thinks about IMO Just a reaction to way he's using the ground and the torques he's putting on his body. You can potentially create a little more speed having the front foot square but brings about more risk of injuring yourself (and maybe even give up some low point control). That's why you see the foot "spin" out, to avoid damage to the ankle/knee joint.
It's not as pronounced ... but Patrick Reed (as posted somewhere on here after the Humana Challenge - by @nevets88 I think) does something similar with his front foot.
Did they add "Putting" to Key 3? (Just joking)
