I think he's just testing the ground to make sure it still has all the energy he'll need for his tee shot.

Justin Rose playing with a swing thought.

Looks like a move I've seen rehearsed before full swings in Dana Dahlquist videos.

It’s a move a lot of people have done.

Hes creating a feel so he can use that as his swing thought or swing feel during the actual swing.

Tiger discussing how he takes or adds spin to his wedge shots. He clearly talks about the feels he tries to achieve to do this.

As I said in another post, I try to limit my swing thoughts to just during my set up. If I have a swing thought during my swing, especially my backswing, I'm sunk. I now try like hell to clear my mind once my set up is complete and just focus on the ball, I even try to pick a dimple out on the ball and concentrate on that to keep my head clear of thoughts. I watched the "How to Hit a Driver" and put that to use, much better game, now I'm trying to lower my index since I have gotten rid of my fade/slice.

That's real nice, but I'm a long way from Tiger Woods! I'm just trying to get the ball somewhere on the damned green! if i'm putting, it's a big success.

You don’t have to be Tiger Woods or any great golfer for that matter to have feels. Sometimes someone can explain what they feel to achieve a particular position or movement and you realize that feel actually helps you do what you’ve been trying to do.

Yes. My current swing thought is upswing and cover the ball on full swings   

Chipping: move shoulders

putting: hit the quadrant
