Camera angles matter…

People will try to analyze, and swings will change over time and adapt as a result of injury or gaps in practice. I was put off by the handheld motion like someone was using a cell phone to take a video of a video while standing in a canoe, maybe that's a way around youtube authorship or something.

 

As to Tiger, we will see how he does when he resumes playing.

I'm confused to how I recorded the video pertains to the analysis of Tiger Woods Driver swing and what you mean by swings will change over time as a result of injury or gaps in practice. While that may be true Tiger obviously was not just "rotating" in 2013 and now "sliding not rotating" in 2014

I think he was just saying he finds it hard to watch a video made by recording with a cell phone that's moving about.

I don't get how that makes golfers worse. I thought the analysis wasn't that bad. Different angle or not he is definitely a little shorter on back swing. His left arm is stiffer in the one on the right and his right arm is in different positions. Which is why you can see his right elbow on the left but not on the right. Then look at his left leg on the swing. That is definitely different. His left leg is bowed on his current swing, which I guess is why there appears to be more seperation and his left shoulder seems to be further back than the one on the right. Although the last part may be contributed some to the camera angle but I even doubt that if you pay attention to when he straightens his left left on both. On the right he straightens it much faster than the left which I am guessing is because he is hip sliding more on the left. Is he worse or better for it? I don't know. I wish I could golf like him and tell you. I guess we will see.

I am no pro but I am interested in why you chose the thread topic though. How exactly does this make golfers worse?

I think the new swing has better lower body action in his rotation, and the camera angle is ****ed.  If they were in front of him it would looked like his club is parallel to the ground.  Its the golf illusion, when tiger has a pretty flat swing, yet people tend to bring their clubs vertical like polo jockeys because that's what they think a golf swing is.

 

Golf channel can be fox news sometimes.
