Tiger is gumby. I think i would tear myself in half if i made a turn like that..lol.

Tigerrs impressive but watching Rickie Fowler's full driver swing on slow motion makes me really uncomfortable...his upper body twists up and his hips don't move...its insane!

He reminded me of Lanny Wadkins the very first time I saw him swing.

tigers been staying on his front side for a while now, ever since the first time they said he was on the range with o'hair and mahan. i kinda figured he had some type of contact with foley then.

actually, that looks like the drill where you hit the ball with your back foot behind you so you have to stay in balance.

Understood, although I believe that drill is to promote an inside-out swing path rather than (or primarily to) balance issues. I've seen it used by teachers for slicers as it is virtually (?) impossible to slice during that drill.

As to the thread, Foley is as good as anybody IMO at this stage for Tiger.

It's a drill designed to show that you can hit from your front foot, the reverse of which is one of the primary reasons people slice.

At Whistling Straits, Foley gave Woods two specific drills. They involved having caddie Steve Williams hold a club shaft against the right side of Woods' head as he swung, preventing him from moving his head laterally on the backswing. "There is no reason to have lateral movement off the golf ball," said Foley. "It impedes the proper turn and forces the eyes to make a new calculation. There are 15 reasons why it's bad."

It's a habit Woods developed early. "It's how I was taught as a junior growing up, how to hit the ball farther, always move off the ball," said Woods, who also worked on lessening the movement under Haney. "But things have changed, technique has changed."


Foley also had Woods place a glove under his right armpit and keep it there to the top of the backswing, forcing his arms closer to his body, ultimately preventing them from dropping behind him on the forward swing. It has been the cause of Woods' most persistent bugaboo -- getting "stuck." Said Foley: "Tiger continued to be stuck because he wasn't doing the right thing to become unstuck."


Same instruction as I got through my work with Golf Evolution. Except I didn't get Steve to hold a club against my head.

The first drill give you more stacking and tilting. The second drill give you deeper hands and a more connected swing.

I am going to be be disappointed in the game of golf if Foley doesnt bring Tiger back. And I am going to give up on ever watching the game again and Tiger Woods if Foley doent finally cme on and say, yes, I teach tack and tilt, or I learn to stack and tilt etc. He is a liar and a cheat if he doesnt..and a fraud for holding out to be anything else. And, that being said I am going to work against him, and Tiger if Foley doesnt fess up. good lord. Everyone on the tour knows..the fans in the stands know..it is a horrible whispering deal going on and Tiger doesnt need to be involved. Tiger is too good for all this stuff

Okay, "golf junkie," calm down... He knows a lot of the S&T; principles but I don't know that he has a complete understanding. To call the guy a liar and a cheat is going WAY too far, and frankly if Mike and Andy could do it over again they'd probably not give it a name (though maybe they would - it's a double-edged sword) and so Foley may be the smartest yet - teach nearly the same things but don't put a name on it.

What is it with you and Sean Foley? You keep calling him a fraud, what has he ever done to you? I'm sure he is worried about you working against him. And what is this "horrible whispering deal"? You must have deep, inside information. Please let us all in on your secret information.

So Tiger needed Foley to tell him to keep his head still and a glove under his armpit? Wow.

I doubt it's just that... those were just drills he could do the week he had a major.

Watch this pretty interesting.

Awesome. And I won't toot my own horn except to say "see, toldja so!"

The key parts are that Foley has pestered Mike and Andy and a lot of what he knows is very Stack and Tilt oriented. He uses the same words as Mike and Andy but won't use the words "stack" or "tilt." So Wayne nailed the early S&T-oriented; stuff... And what does Wayne actually say? - Hands deeper, no "dropping into the slot." - Head staying more centered via a steeper shoulder pitch. - He doesn't care about the "head drop." Yep... kinda what I (and many, many others) have been saying for awhile now.

    • IMO, if you hit 11 GIR's you should shoot 73. I agree that you should work on putting and chipping - at least half of total practice time.   Might want to try an app like MyRoundPro that shows strokes gained (and lost) in different parts of the game. More objective than traditional stats.  
    • 48-39-87 Weird day. My short game was killing me and then I got it in high gear. Parred the last 6 holes. 
    • Some range time after playing today. Just searching a bit for some consistency. I found it more in making shorter (of course) backswings.  Also, a bit more left hip goes back and up, and feels like I get some belt buckle pointing to sky more.  Just trying to clean up low point better. I rather hit some slight thins by extending up more than by flipping to avoid fatting shots.  Some driver swings. Today I was hitting a ton of push cuts (no playable). When I tried to play for them I hit the ball straight (Golf sucks).  Baseline Driver... (not a push cut, of course) Kind of same feels for iron swing. Shorter backswing, belt buck up to sky as I turn.    On a side note, its getting easier to just turn the swing length down by making a what feels like an 75% turn on the backswing. Of course, I get to 90 degrees here making what feels like is like partial backswing shoulder turn.   
    • I would say it’s about 50/50 in terms of too long or too short. Usually I’m pretty on line - it’s mainly distance control. Downhill putts are especially hard for me to judge.    I am staring at my putter more wondering if maybe it is time for a change. I have had the same box set Maxfli putter for almost 20 years. The grip is all worn down and you can see where I strike it on the face. I’ve never tried another putter so maybe I should try something that gives me better feedback.    
    • Shot 83 today, 16 GIR/nGIR, 31 putts, and 3 penalty strokes. Considering the high GIR/nGIR amount (for me), I should have had a better score, but I had three very costly swings that I estimate cost me 4-5 strokes. 1) Approach shot OB on #2, ended up making triple bogey. 2) Tee shot on #6 into penalty area, but managed bogey with a good approach after penalty drop. 3) Easy sand shot on #14 that I picked perfectly clean instead of hitting sand, and launched about 60 yards over the green into the native junk/weeds. Ended up making double bogey after it took two more shots from knee high grass to get onto the green. Drove the ball well today, and short game COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills are continuing to pay off. Missed some makeable birdie putts, but no 3-putts, so overall putting was fine.
