Woods and the "New" Golf Swing

his 79th victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational,
1 of 5 wins in 2013, Tiger Woods again secured
position in the world golf rankings. Due to limited
play in 2014 and a hiatus for microdiscectomy surgery for
a pinched nerve he has slipped to #5 but will soon be back
are a number of reasons why Tiger is finding success with
the latest iteration of his golf swing. And the results speak
for themselves. He's not only winning, but he is crushing
rest of the
field when he tees it up. Don't let the slow start to 2014
fool you, Woods "A" game is lurking as evidenced
by his 65 at the 2014 Honda Classic amidst
his swing change, Woods gained considerable distance with
all his clubs in 2012,
and continued to add accurate distance in 2013.
He was ranked 17th out of 185 in total driving (distance
and accuracy) last year.
Before that, years of being in
of the driving accuracy category
cost him at least a dozen wins including a few majors.
scoring average was also stellar and this combined with solid,
putting resulted in an all around PGA Tour ranking
of #1 in 2013. Quite
from where he was just a few years ago.
new swing, developed in conjunction with Canadian swing coach
Sean Foley, is both simple and complex at the same time.
This is one of the reasons Woods is still dialing in the
new technique, though it looks like he has it mastered.
is more than one way to swing the club effectively. The best
players in the world do 3 things well, regardless of "method".
At a minimum, they must accomplish these 3 things
Generate high club head speed which allows for distance potential,
especially off the driver.
2) Be able to hit the center of the club face consistently (in
fact, wear it out).
3) Control the club face angle and club head path so
their side spin (draw, fade) is manageable.
these points starts
with the address position, and Tiger's has improved
tremendously in the past 12-18 months. It is a big reason
for his huge leap in consistency, power, and accuracy.

sensing the ground. He's digging into the ground
with that right insole. The ground will be exploited in the
rest of the swing, as it is with all great ball strikers:

also learned a lot from the players who weren't the best
ball strikers on Tour. They were missing some key elements
that made their swings less efficient, and it showed in their
some assistance to help you Feel
the Ground Better at Address (Set-up)...
For most shots, distributing the weight 50/50 between the
right and left foot is a good rule of thumb at set-up. For
a driver, you can even have 60% of the weight on the back (trail)
foot as this encourages a slight upsweep through impact.

them to compress. This will activate the feelings in
the ball and heel of the feet. They will really come alive!

a helpful visual representation. Picture this in your mind's
eye at address:
should be about a 60/40
ball to heel distribution of weight within each foot. This
slight forward press into the ball of the foot which provides
great stability and allows the legs to act like pistons.
That is represented by the slightly larger pressure triangle
This notion that a golfer sets up or balances on the balls
of the feet is
nonsense! Sure, there is weight on the balls of
the feet, but it is a result of compressing the arches.
Tiger has this mastered this in recent months. Prior to that
he was back on his heels. This one, simple adjustment has
paid huge dividends for Woods.
great players at address. One of my favorite players
to study set up to the ball is Hall of Fame
member Ernie Els. He
grips the ground at address like a cat. He is
balanced and relaxed. Ernie’s nickname, “The
Big Easy”, speaks to his free flowing, powerful swing;
a swing that starts from a balanced set-up position.
a golfer establishes a comfortable, balanced position at

start of the swing. The swing will be off to a great start.

let me be very clear, the weight distribution only starts
in the pressure distribution above. It changes
the swings of the best players once they are in motion.
best players know where the weight moves throughout the
swing, the high handicap golfer does not. The best ball strikers,
the guys that turn heads on the range, center their strikes
swing after swing. It's the result of a coordinated symphony

precision; a crack and the ball is on its way, boring a hole

as usual, after reading I needed to go to the practice
range to see if it at least worked sometimes for
me before committing any further time - patience
is not one of my virtues.
I hit the ball well & hit what I was aiming
at most of the time that is not the reason for
the first time in my 40 years of golf I felt & knew
at the top when I was in a good position to hit
the ball solidly & could predict the outcome
from the top of my swing.
short, thank you - I now have the new sensation
of the correct feeling at the top - golf is not
a game of perfect but given 5 minutes practice
I am convinced that "simple" is the
answer for the amateur/social golfer to play good
golf without hitting hundreds of balls per day.
- your instruction clears the head of the thousand
thoughts that ruin scores & a good day out
