Tiger Woods – 2 Positive Things + 1 Major Issue (Video)

Believe it or not, I saw a couple of things I liked in Tiger Woods’ golf swing when I took a close look at a swing from an angle I could check it out properly.

Down the line, which was 90% of the swing coverage, doesn’t show much of what I wanted to see… but of course, I also saw the one thing that raises caution flags when evaluating any Modern Golf Swing.

Analysts All Missing The Point Re: Tiger Woods

I’m trying to watch today’s event and I guess everyone on television is forgetting that, in the year that Tiger Woods injured his back (2013), he won five tournaments with the swing that injured his back.

So, I really don’t get what I’m hearing on television, perhaps someone can help me out.  Because the question has never been, “Can Tiger Woods play golf?”

Tiger Woods’ Hop-Skip & Jump

If you remember your old track & field terminology, the “Triple Jump” used to be known more informally as the “Hop, Skip & Jump.”

Jack Nicklaus Describes MCS Leverage Concept In His Own Words

If you watch the following clip, you’ll hear the greatest of all time, Jack Nicklaus, pretty much nailing in his own words the concept of down swing leverage – even to the part of the hips & legs providing the power for the 1st Lever!

MCS Golf Swing Action = “Quiet Leverage”

I slowed down three separate swings that I shot last spring when I was producing the “E = MCS” swing video, to illustrate what I have talked about regarding “quiet” action in the golf swing.

A “quiet” golf swing means exactly that, in that you aren’t jumping, lunging or diving when swinging a club.

Hallelujah – Tiger Woods Finally Admits Modern Swing “Trashed My Knee”

You could say a couple of things here, like “Better Late Than Never,” or “Welcome To The Party Called Reality,” or perhaps, “File This Under Biggest Non-Surprise Of The Golf Half-Millenium,” but Tiger Woods has finally admitted that the way he swung for years was what “trashed” his knee.
