For some reason, I’ve been having a devil of a time finding clips of TW from certain angles, as they mostly seem to be down the line views or up the line from down the fairway.
I’m wondering if that’s by design, but when I did find a couple of swings from angles which I wanted, I had to say, “Oh boy…”
And that’s all I’ll say, except to tell you where to watch and what.
On the below gif. watch the footwork coming through impact:
Again, if anyone is wondering what is going on with his fairways hit from the tee, just go out and try to drive a straight ball with all of that foot action, especially the leading one through impact.
I also noticed something above that you can see even better in the below gif. – Tiger’s hip turn and left knee stop halfway through the back swing, and then that violent change of direction…
If you have the stomach, I took another angle on a driver and began the gif. where the hips stop turning. For good measure, watch the middle back at the top and in the change of direction starting back down.
If you think that back is twisted at the top, wait til the hips start back:
Forgive me for saying that I don’t believe the spine is meant to sustain that type of twisting force.
As I said in a much earlier posting about the spine fusion TW underwent – if you fuse the spot that you injured twisting your back and then subjecting it to violent changes of direction and you continue to swing that way, you’re just transferring the twisting forces to another part of the un-fused spine…
And I believe that anyone who proclaimed this swing to be the cat’s pajamas…
… should be forced, under extreme duress if necessary, to hit a bucket of balls doing exactly what you’re seeing above.
Then get back to me…
And how long that above is going to last is anyone’s guess, but my back hurts just looking at that.
