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 pr

    • That's impressive. It doesn't surprise me about Carl's being busy.   (I like Joe as an instructor).   As we turn into March, there are more golfers getting ready for the season.   I expect the golf courses to be busy also.   
    • Brian, sorry I missed this post. So glad you came through ok. Hope we can get together and tee it up this summer on one of my work visits to the mitten. 
    • I agree and should have looked at the calendar closer before I committed.  I guess I could call Joe and give up the freebie and stretch out the others.  I’m not sure of their policy but they are usually very client focused.
    • It's your money… I'm just not sure I understand committing to paying for four but having them so rushed… I feel like paying for one a month might be a better long-term plan, even if you don't get the "fifth" lesson for "free."
    • Yes, that is a concern since it will limit practice time between lessons.  I have worked range time into my calendar so there will be practice just not as much as I expect to need.  Joe and I discussed this and we will spend multiple lessons on similar aspects of the game and some of the lessons will be reinforcing the prior lesson, not necessarily introducing a new area to focus on.
