Yep! there's a 9i swing in there too which looks sweet and his recent scorecards aren't too shabby either (although to be fair he could easily only post the better scores)

Looking forward to seeing how he plays in real competition now.

Those swings look really good.  For a while there his wrist was getting a little too flat at the top which creates compensation nightmares.  I like this swing by far of all 49 swings he's had.  I was a little skeptical at first, but I think he's on the right track.  Hopefully he can get back to his winning ways.  The +7.7 handicap is pretty funny.

When Tiger reaches P6, is the clubhead likely to be under his hands, on his hands, or above his hands?

Consider what this does to the base plane line: does it shift it, and if so, in which direction: left or right?

Edit: These will help:

Also, ask yourself what "problem" Tiger's had, and what he's trying to avoid.

Assuming, of course, that he hasn't simply decided "screw it, I'm gonna play golf with that problem and just be content to ______ every golf ball."

Yeah. Or push it.

He could play good golf from there if he was content to just push every ball quite a bit. His plane line is shifted well to the right in that image. Pushes and hooks.

What'd Rory do off #10 tee at Augusta? BIG hook. What did Rory do well enough at Congressional? Keep the face open enough to not hook the ball off the planet.

If your path is ten degrees right, then the clubface had better be four to eight degrees open at impact... Or more if you want to hit the ball straight or even fade it a little.

No. Sean Foley used to ask Mike and Andy. Still does, so far as I know, but they've kinda stopped "giving it away for free" so to speak.

Tiger has always said he fears left, grew up at a time where most taught path controls start direction and we see his tendency to get underplane to "avoid" left.  He knows better now, but I think it's a habit.  Like Erik said he could push it all day long but I don't he is intentionally getting underplane to do that.  I know the camera is a little high but he is underplane with the 9 IRON!  Look at how much more closed the shoulders are than Charlie Hoffman's

Which leads to this, can't stay in his tilts, can't keep the hands on the circle

Why would you ever want to hit a pull fade with the driver?

Bubba Watson and Vijay hit lots of pull fades with the driver. [VIDEO]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cg_N7I36WFw&NR;=1[/VIDEO] [VIDEO]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3u9RMoKEo8[/VIDEO]

Nice analysis mvmac. You should do more.

I'm just a hacker but Tiger's new swing looks horrible to me because his head dips down so much towards the ball during the downswing. It looks like he's going to hit a massive fat shot that won't reach the ladies tee. Maybe this is just an optical illusion or some move that is required due to his injury but if he can shoot 62 with that much head movement then I guess he must still have it! Anyone better qualified care to comment on the head dipping?

He's always had that dip, so I suppose he can work with it, but there is still progress to make.
