What did Tiger say?

Recommended Posts

All non-verbal of course since he usually does not talk to us, mere mortals.  In this WSJ report some chaps analyzed Tiger's body language after a shot and drew some conclusions. E.g.  He hits the drive and quickly grabs the tee off the ground = 320 yds, dead straight. Next he tosses the sand wedge into the dirt after the explosion shot fails to clear the lip = substantial unhappiness.

If i hit a drive like that i would be totally mesmerized and unable to move for 3 minutes.

More here with numbers and other data.

They missed the most obvious one: High right shoulder into followthrough, ball likely in the right trees.

To think, this author could have directed his energy to the betterment of mankind.  But instead, he chose to watch Tiger's body language.  I hope Congress didn't fund this research.

And twirl your club. That alone guarantees a good shot!

Amen to that, if nothing else you can seriously fake out your friends who are watching you hit the ball. "Oooh he must have liked that one", low and behold the ball actually sliced 50 yards OB.
