I like it. Did you find the clips on Youtube mostly, or other sites too?

Great job! IMO, his iron swing was one of the best of all-time. It just looked like he was going to hit it perfect every time.

Is it my own ignorance, or does it appear that he didn't dip his head nearly as bad as he does now. There was some movement then, but now it's really pronounced. And a lot more lower body action then, too. Halcyon days...

Woods had a better swing with John Anselmo, who showed Woods how to swing like Sam Snead from age 10 to 18, No doubt Woods improved under Butch Harmon, and didn't do so bad under Hank Haney ........ the problem now is more off the course that affects the on course, and not so much the teacher IMO

His swing used to be much more hip oriented. Now it is a little more shoulder and wrist oriented. As for the head movement, I don't really know. When he is playing poorly the head tends to dip more, but that is usually an aftereffect of other problems more than one in itself.

Great stuff... I noticed the lower-body action, too, and wonder if he could do that now given his knee condition. In fact, I recall him saying he and Hank changed his swing partly to make it easier on his knee, and that was pre-ACL surgery.

All the hullabaloo with his off-course antics aside, I must say I miss watching the guy play. I don't care what anyone says, golf is just not the same without him.

We're taking a look at Tiger's swing with Butch and Hank this week in my Methods of Teaching class. My roommate is a week ahead and they already did. I guess it looks much better now...weird. I'll let you guys know, my roommate can be an idiot sometimes but who knows.

Everyone saying it's about the hips... yeah: http://thesandtrap.com/forum/threads...-2000-vs.-2010

Also look at how steep his shoulders are at the top.

Hank also said tiger starting spending hours a day in the gym. He got alot bigger than when he first turned pro. I mean look at the pics, hes like a string bean, now hes bulky. That will change your swing a little when you workout like that.

i dont think that driver shot over the trees was pre haney. I think I remember that being in 2005 where he beat mickelson on the last hole at doral? or was it at the Honda or something.

Let's face up to the key point... the earlier Tiger got the club back in a position where he could move and turn through the shot freely. It was steeper, the club more down the line when needed and allowed him to hit the long draw blast, the zinger fade, and the hold off cut shot. Today he has to manipulate his downswing to do that, as well as time his hand action. All that means less power on a relative basis. Just an opinion.

Very youthful swing. I dont think tiger could swing like that anymore even if he wanted to.

interesting point. i dont know if i agree or not...

Its true with many golfers. Tigers younger swing was explosive and violent. You cant keep that up forever. Perhaps he can go back to some of the positions he had when he was younger, but he is never going to swing like he was in the video at his age.

    • Day 430 Solid work in the traps.  From barely visible buried ones to some gently resting almost flat in shallow dusty grit. Not all shots were perfect and quite a few said in their own way "Try Again" End result was 1/2 hour of work in this area with what I would call a 75-80% success rate  
    • I have the Callaway Diablo in the 3H-4H-5H. I bought them new at Dick’s about 10 years ago. They have the A flex shaft that I had shortened by 1”. I will keep them until they are totally destroyed. They have helped my game more than any club in the bag. I actually think I could play a complete round with these three clubs and a putter.
    • What constitutes practice?   I work from home and am in charge of my own schedule which leaves me plenty of time throughout the day for "activities".  The city offered a membership to 4 of the local courses for $65 a month, unlimited play so I picked it up.  Right now I'm playing 9 four days a week and 18 once a week. While I'm definitely seeing improvement, especially when it comes to club selection and judging distance, there are areas where I'm still struggling.  I tend the view the 9 hole days as practice rounds, but should I be doing other things as well?   I'm pretty consistent at being on or within about 5 to 10 yards off the green for my 3rd shot on a par 4.  But 95% of the time I'm 3 putting and ending up double bogey by inches.  I work on putting around the house, but it's a totally different beast on the course.  And I've seen huge improvements from when I started till now so I do feel that playing everyday during the week is helping, but instead should I go spend an hour or so on a practice green?   Thanks in advance!
    • The Virtues is the former Longaberger. Usually #1 in the state. Fantastic place. Stonelick Hill outside Cincy is phenomenal. The owner is a restaurant owner who didn't like the stuffiness of a club he joined, so he bought land, hired an architect and started his own. Little Mountain is good but gets a lot of play so it's not always pristine. I think The Quarry is much better than Boulder Creek. Management and the "pro" are extremely rude at Boulder as well. If you've never done the 9 Stars of Golf package with Eagle Sticks and The Virtues, grab your buddies and a weekend and get it done. They are 45 min apart. 
    • Translation: "I have nothing to actually say, so I'm going to go ad hominem and attack the person who isn't just blindly accepting my 'premier ball flight dynamics' talk instead." If I "lorded over" anything here, I'd probably just stop you from posting. We wouldn't even have this topic. Instead, I ask you questions, engage in discussions with you (or attempt to, if you weren't busy ducking out of them at any opportunity), and actively give away a bunch of my own information and help people here on the forum play better golf. You, from my perspective, just come on now and then, throw a few things out there about how great your "swing" is, and then when challenged, find new and creative ways to duck out. 🤦‍♂️ Dude, I do that too. This has nothing to do with "peace." I… wait for it… disagree with the statements you've made about golf. And I've asked you to prove or clarify or at least discuss some of them. That's it.
