I have talked before about how you get a lot of Modern Golf Swing players diving into the down swing, and I’ve alternately called it the “Harpoon”move (that phrase is not mine, but that of Mike Austin’s).
You also hear it talked about on TV as the “head drop,” and this is the funniest part of what I watch & listen to on television – when Tiger Woods was the best in the world, the same drop kept coming up in a positive way.
When they said this year’s flu season was going to be a bad one, they weren’t kidding.
Luckily the entire golf world is anticipating Tiger Woods’ imminent return to official PGA Tour events after a year layoff – I think making the cut would be a great achievement, to be honest – and I’ll leave this thread up for anyone wishing to comment on the day.
All you have to do is watch the “down move” or what most people call the transition at the top from back swing to down swing, to see how the Modern Golf Swing has lost the natural leverage that the Classic Golf Swing models contain(ed).
Well, I survived (very pleasantly) a grand Christmas Day get-together hosted by one of our daughter’s friends’ family (surviving meaning I didn’t eat and drink myself to death, though I gave it a shot), and we are now on the other side, with the New Year looming.
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?”
