This Is Big – Golf Digest Publishes The “X-Factor” Study

Well, I had just told Mr. McJohn in a comment yesterday not to hold his breath on any major golf publications or channels discussing the results of the so-called “X-Factor” study we read about in the BBC

And lookie here, friends – Golf Digest through GolfWorld courtesy of Joe Beall has just published a piece online doing exactly that:

Awful Swings & Analysis @ The Farmers (Tiger Woods)

If you are a Tiger Woods fan, better to skip this posting, because watching golf today had me shaking my head.

By now, I’ve probably said it a million times – how does Tiger Woods wonder why he’s always hitting the ball left when he has a “swing left” move and also takes the club back with a closed face?

No Wonder Tiger Woods Keeps Double-Crossing His Fade

This wouldn’t be the 1st thing that has Tiger Woods double-crossing himself – the whole “swing left” move where you’re coming down on plane and then trying to yank the club left at impact.

How can anyone be surprised when the ball goes left?!?

Hitting It As Far With Less Effort (Cameron Champ)

I wrote a post about Cameron Champ’s prodigious length last week and made the point that he could indeed get even more distance out of his swing with better impact conditions.

However here is a point un-made that I think is even more valid: he doesn’t really need more distance, but with an improvement to his impact conditions (and shall I say, swing model), he could get the same distance with less effort.

BMW Championship Thread – Volvik Long Drive Edition

Today is a busy work day for me, so I’ll just offer a few thoughts as everyone gets ready for the season’s penultimate event, the BMW Championship.

I Called It – More “Vertical Lift” Coming Your Way…

You’ll recall it wasn’t too long ago (two weeks, actually), when I blogged about noticing a new terminology in TV golf swing analysis – that of “vertical lift” to excuse the “flying foot” symptom of several notable pros, and to make that swing flaw into something positive.

Tiger Woods’ Health & Club Speed (Update – “Ice Baths?!?”

Update Below The Fold – And It Isn’t Good News **

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.

Bridgestone – Tiger Watch & Open Thread

I’ll be busy for the next week wrapping up the “MCS – Project 2018” video, so I may not be as active on the blog as usual.

It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, but as any project nears completion, most of my focus is on that, and I find it hard to post on other matters while my attention is occupied.

Another Ominous Tiger Woods Post-Surgery Comment

I had made mention a little while back when word came out that Tiger Woods has been taking ibuprophen “all day”¬†on the advice of his surgeon, to combat possible back pain onset since his return from the 4th back surgery, that one a spinal fusion.
