Possible Swing Changes for Tiger in his 40's

Posted this on IG yesterday, just something I thought would be interesting to throw out there. I could be completely off but when you look at players that have had long, relatively injury-free careers they tend to have more "freedom" with their lower body (Phil, Jack, Sam Snead, Vijay). By freedom I mean allowing the hips to turn, trail knee losing some flex and the lead knee moving inward. I've also felt Tiger's swing, especially in recent years, is too restrictive and hurts his downswing seque

Learning and Owning Your Swing Thoughts and Feels

A big part of what separates TST from other sites is the instructional content that is provided. Golfers want to get better and there are a lot of threads on here that can guide golfers in the right direction. From all these topics and member swing threads we run into these popular questions, "What should I feel?" and "I feel so-and-so when I do this, is that right?". Honestly, the answer is......we have no idea. We're not seeing the swing and not in your body to confirm whether something is rig

Sharpie Test: Easy Way to Check Your Lie Angles

While it's always a great idea to spend some time with a qualified fitter, there are a couple things you can do on your own to see if your irons are properly fit for you. Recent feedback I've gotten from several fitting experts is that the technique of drawing a sharpie line on the back of a ball is better for dynamic lie fitting than using a lie board. The sharpie test is simple and allows you to hit balls off grass. The lie board with tape on the sole is obviously a popular method but the boar

What every golfer can learn from Tiger Woods

From a conversation I just had with a buddy. Couple things you can learn from the 14-time major champion. 1. It's possible to change the picture.  He's done it several times now and a couple of them have been pretty significant. You can look at a video of his swing and spot whether it was his "Haney swing" or his "Harmon swing". Here's my take on how he does it, he expects and is determined to feel "uncomfortable". He's talked about this in interviews and I've seen in person how he goes about

    • Tell him the same thing we'd tell teammates after practice when they shaved their scores down when they played a shitty round. 103? 103? that sounds about right if you stopped counting on the 15th hole
    • He's your brother? Punch him in the nuts, tell him to stop cheating, and then schedule your next round together.
    • Exactly what I was thinking. He may hate me for it for a while, but if he’s gonna be on the team, he needs to start playing by the rules. 
    • It’s time for you to introduce him to the rules and etiquette of golf before this becomes a habit. The sooner the better. Sure, no big deal if he is only planning to be a casual golfer,  but if his intention is to eventually make it on the team, he needs to be honest about his scores and start practicing telling the truth now. 
    • I would just let it be. If he hurt his leg and it was just a casual round, then I do not see the issue really. Does he turn his scores in for handicap purposes? I play with guys that do this all of the time. It doesn't bother me. My thoughts are that they are out enjoying playing. Not all of my friends are sticklers for rules; they just like being out there on the course. In the case of him doing this in a match as part of the team, sometimes you just have to allow people to make their own decis
