I guess anyone watching the weekend’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational noticed that the announcers seems to be focused on Tiger Woods and his apparent stiffness, lack of energy and other things on the weekend.
I will admit that I only saw much of him on Thursday, because the weekend had me busy with family things and working on the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video.
Out of the scenarios I pointed out yesterday during the final round of the Open Championship, I completely overlooked one possibility, because he was playing such a quiet and overshadowed-by-his-playing-partner-Tiger-Woods round of golf.
I’ve been watching the action in the final round of the Open Championship, and it seems that, while he’s hit a couple of shaky shots to end his front 9, Tiger Woods incredibly seems on course to bagging his 15th major tropy.
I said in last year’s video on the golf swing, “E = MCS,” that the mechanics of the back swing pivot could be broken down into a very simple concept, which I termed the “One Major Move.”
When I began to look at my own “plane” with the left arm at the top and the down swing “slot,” I discovered that not only is the “One Major Move”the best way to make your pivot, it’s also the best way to swing on plane when you do it the way the model dictates.
This is video from May 11th when I was hitting 9, 7 and 5 Irons, with two different angles.
I feel that my swing has gotten better in the 11 days since shooting this video but I’m working on the upcoming “Project 2018” video which means that I don’t have time to keep shooting video – besides, there will be lots of swings in the video!
