While working out the model I’ve been building of late, I fell across something that may have solved my issue of “head shift on the back swing or into the down swing, head shift at all or none” that has been on my mind.
First, does anyone remember how Jack Nicklaus used to get over the ball and, just before he began his backswing, he’d tilt his head to a certain spot and then swing?
You all know of my contempt for the concepts of Modern Golf, whether it’s calling a flying leading foot something like “creating vertical lift” or the other silly term “using the ground” as if some players are floating in the air during their swings.
Well, congratulations to Golf.com for a completely undecipherable article that asks how Tiger Woodscreates his ball speed and answers, I’m not kidding, “Very Carefully.”
Just as the 3 most important things in real estate or property are Location, Location & Location, you will always hear my belief that the 3 most important parts of the golf swing are Setup, Setup and Setup.
Here is a driver swing from a youngTiger Woods, if you’ll allow me to point out things that would have concerned me at the time.
He literally shot -1 on one leg on Thursday and don’t let the +2 round yesterday fool you – after not playing in a Tour event in a year and a half, another back surgery and a shattered right leg, the man has scored better than all but 18 players thus far.
Granted it’s Augusta National where he could play blind-folded in the dark, but come on.
