This sounds right. I passed by a few minutes later and saw what was left on the interstate, looked like a few small cars with minimal damage, no trucks. Strangely, there was an ice chest and bud light cans on the ground by the guardrail. I figured they had to have fallen out of a truck, but coul...

I don't get the criticism of Montgomery for being honest.

What the hell did tiger do on his second and third shot on 18? Drive in the fairway, 166 to the hole, then he only hits it 130? Then 6 yards on his next shot? Two huge chunks in a row I guess?
He also managed to hit a 5 foot putt 7 feet past the hole to three putt :bow:...
| More Sports Board|| re: Tiger Woods’ golf swing from 1978 to present day - NewOrleansBlend on 5/31/13 at 7:41 am|
I would say it's more of a squat at the start of the downswing to create potential energy and then a release of it than a lunge. When I think of someone lunging at the ball their whole body, including their head, is moving toward the ball. That's obviously not correct, but what Tiger does is consi...
| More Sports Board|| re: Tiger Woods’ golf swing from 1978 to present day - NewOrleansBlend on 5/31/13 at 7:13 am|
I also think the 2013 swing looks a little funky, but I think it's because he's trying to create a high, super spinning shot here. The fact that he's hitting into 18 at Augusta lends credence to this.
Watching Tiger now I'm amazed at the sheer variety of swings he uses on a daily basis. He's g...

[quote]He looks like he really changed his swing between 97 and 2000[/quote]
Absolutely. Looks like in 1997 he generated all of his power from a huge and quick hip rotation and kinda slinging the club into the ball, whereas from 2000 on he has tamed his hip rotation and generated/generates his p...

Tiger supposedly uses a 50 degree pitching wedge, the old-school tradition PW loft. I think he is one of the few with a pw that weak though, most are between 45-48.
I would doubt that most pga tour pros his clubs stronger than modern standards since they generally carry a 3 iron. If their lo...

sergio went for the pin on 17, trying to win the tournament. He put a good swing on it, but I guess he misjudged the wind, and like most other players including tiger, came up shorter than expected. If tiger had gone for the pin instead of bailing left, he would have been in the water as well. An...
