Call the Foley swing that he is teaching Tiger whatever you want. It stinks.
I see people nearing an excitement level reserved for sexual arousal over how perfect some of his positions are, but being perfectly on the elbow plane at P2-P6 doesn’t mean a thing if body parts don’t match up because you manipulated the club there through repetition. How often do I say you can’t zero out positions because the golf swing is a dynamic, reactive process.
Let’s say a high powered computer decides the optimum way to take turn 3 at Indianapolis is at 223 MPH and the driver must turn his steering wheel to 10:41. How many deaths would there be if each driver decided to manipulate to those numbers by starting at his hands, steering wheel and speedometer?
They would use those numbers and change the way the FEEL out the turn.
S&T and all forms of it are a steep swing designed to get players with little to no skill and athletic ability a proper angle of attack without them having to steepen the club with their hands.
You don’t teach that to guy like Tiger. He is too steep. If the fact he often takes divots large enough to bury Dave Pelz in isn’t enough evidence…how about the fact he just missed his first cut of the year after spending the first two days hitting fat wood shots?!?!?!?!
Tiger needs to take this swing, put it in a paper bag, light it on fire, drop it on the front porch of Hank Haney and ring the doorbell.
Maybe that’s his new name. I can hear the guy on the first tee at Torrey Pines. Nice double entendre.
“Now on the tee, playing out of Desperation, former winner of 4 consecutive majors. Now can only win the Zipper Open…please welcome Chunking Woods.”
