what is stack and tilt, I keep hearing that phrase.

I just read what it is. I have actually been doing this same stuff in my swing even before I have read the stack and tilt method. I always would try to keep most weight on my left foot because I felt I hit the ball better and could control it better that way and have been doing that for years.

Tiger will go solo for 2 years and fix it himself. He needs to stay over the ball and focus on impact. He will be in the top 10% in total driving...then his irons, short game, and putting will wreck shop. Haney totally f-uped his swing.

Tiger will dig it out of the dirt like Hogan did. His swing 10 years ago was the best ever....undeniable power and accuracy.......CRISP! He will find it again.

Tiger has walked the runway nude with his problems...his second chance has just started. The horse has been beat enough!

I think Tiger went with hank because of mark o meira, who is a close friend to tiger. Haney came along side mark o meira when mark first became a pro and was stuggling to stay pro. I guess Haney helped him to stay on tour and to actually start winning.

This should be interesting with Tiger and how his swing will change with his coach. Will it be Butch? It was a nice way to let Hank go if Tiger had a change of mind. What the real question would be is who is the next celebrity for Hank on his TV show?

More than I need to.

Not meaning to hijack here, but I see now why people from Colorado have such long driving averages - they be hitting off mountains.

I think Tiger should compile all Golf Digest instructional tips he's personally done (sure he did) and videos of his own swing when it was its most perfect (___insert swing version____) and then hire Cameron to create a virtual 3D uberhot alien chick as a coach / mentor. It could fill all his current needs.

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

Haney may have quit on his own. Not easy being associated with Tiger, especially with a shark feeding frenzy going on. Just about anyone known to be coaching Tiger will have to wall himself off. Not something you can do if you want to continue working with ordinary golfers. I can imagine a flock of reporters hanging around Hank Haney's golf facility, trying to sneak in or get in by signing up for lessons.

Steve Williams can handle the association. Nobody is going to get in his face, and besides, he can hide out in New Zealand.

Has anyone mentioned D & A? It's not only a matter of a disruption of Tiger's life. Indications were that back during the November incident, while he still had something of a homelife, Tiger was taking at least two prescription drugs in addition to drinking. It's hard to take mood affecting drugs routinely and analyze and rebuild your golf swing. If Tiger is not careful, in a dozen years he could pull a Michael Jackson. Their lives, thanks in part to us, have definite similarities. Oh, the sad life of a superstar.

My son played in a 2 day tournament this weekend, one of the players he was paired with is in the Sean Foley academy, one of Sean's assistants teaches him. Anyway...the buzz is that Sean will be Tiger's new coach.

Can we assume he took my advice? I'd cook up a cross between Lara Croft, Laura Diaz and Cristie Kerr - or one of the random hotties from Tiger Woods '09 for Wii.

I watched the press conference from Memorial earlier and it sounds like Tiger has no plans of getting a new coach immediately. Says he has replaced Haney with a video camara!

Yes...but Foley was wathcing him warm up yesterday. I think it will be half video camera - half Foley...with no official announcement in the next 6 months.

    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be? 
    • This is a bad calculation because many people have more than 1 vehicle. For me, I have 3, two motorcycles and a car, and I don't think I have ever taken all 3 out in the same day, let alone 3 times each. A better metric would be 3x licensed drivers.
    • Spend 30 bucks or spend 15 seconda after each round? I'll just keep doing it for myself
