I'd sure like Tiger to be able to do that.  But as long as you swing right handed you're going to stress the L knee some, albeit some swings might stress it less than others.  Just how damaged the L Knee is and how much stress it can take, is the question and I doubt anyone knows the answer today.  But time will tell.

this is a real pic but they cut off arjun atwal who was talking with them too. He has him for a coach. Im sure Hunter Mayhans driving stats last year had a role in Tigers decision to pick Foley as well

Tiger may have to wear a heavy brace to support the knee until he decides to go for the surgery to repair his MCL and any other damage he's done to his knee.  My knees are pretty beat up from years of playing football and racquetball.  I'm into long distance running now and they never bother me during or after a run, but if I spend too much time at the range, my right knee will get a little sore.

If looking to copy the swing of a player that makes it look completely effortless and stress-free, one needs to take a look at the move of Steve Elkington....just seems to me that Elk will be playing great, competitive golf late into his 50s with that swing.

just my humble opinion......

TW needs a head coach...and to start bangin HO's again....for real

dude was more than likely stressed about getting caught that he has to much time for golf!! LOL!

I dunno, not much of a stats or technical guy or even know much about the swing in general....so i can't comment on what hes doing right or wrong

and i bet most of us on here don't know on here either, other than repeating whats been heard on TGC or TV in general

I think Bubba is on to something tho

stop thinking about it so much and just play by feel

concentrating too much on stats and mechanics can make you forget about the task at hand

maybe im wrong...... ???? who knows.....

    • During my exquisitely wonderful (sarcasm) practice session today I was wondering about asking this very question. With my wedges thru 6 iron I look at the top of the ball, steeper angle of attack, hit ball first ground second. With my 5 iron, 2 & 3 Utility irons, 5 Wood and Driver I look at the back of the ball, this for sweeping.  When all things work in perfect unison and coordination it seams to turn out pretty good.  Today nothing turned out good so I read this topic and super excitted about what I can learn and crap.  I read fuzzy, a foot before the ball, see target hit target, mind zen type stuff.  OK all fine and good but now I have no idea, no idea at all how to look at a golf ball. Take this with a grain of salt, very frustrating day of practice followed by the most frustrating year of golf I have had, ever.   At least in baseball it was easy, see ball hit ball.  In football it was even easier, see ball destroy who has ball, get ball.  In practice I think a lot, mechanics and such When I play I do not think at all, just focus
    • Day 19 (missed 1 and 7 days ago) - Missed posting yesterday despite practicing.  2nd so far since starting.  Need to be perfect for the next 3 weeks if I'm going to hit my goal of keeping it active all year.  Today, was partial swings with the smart ball.
    • Your situation still calls into question the accuracy of or the confidence we should have in the recovery/hrv numbers.  In reality, your SWS cycle occurred when it occurred.  And thus, your HRV in the last 5 minutes of that cycle was what it was.  However, if the change in the algorithm can change the estimate of when that was and have it result in a 25% change, then what does it really mean? I've had a similar debate going on about my numbers.  I actually manually start my sleep activity when i lie down to go to sleep.  Last night, that was 10:15 or so, and I know i didnt actually fall asleep until close to 11.  However, my whoop data counts 10:15 to 11:00 as light sleep with only one occurrence of "awake".  Does that mean lying still in bed while awake isn't any different than light sleep?  If so, thats fine.  If not, then the same thing holds where the baseline calc could be off, and that changes the rest of the metrics. Yes, that is a better answer.  Still uncomfortable with a 25% difference in recovery.
    • Day 17 - got to do a practice round today.  Working to continue developing a repeatable driver.  Overall - ball striking was not as consistent yet I was in the fairway just as often.  Iron play was decent while fairways suffered.  Putting - worked on keeping the eyes looking down and not chasing the ball once struck....not easy as "eye" want to see it go in.
