Tiger Woods and the Importance of Camera Angles

This video is not so much about Tiger’s swing (although it is still awesome) as it is about the difference camera positioning makes when viewing the same swing from different angles and comparing swings side by side as though they are the same when actually the camera angles are different.   Here we Tiger hit the same tee shot from different angles. One is the regular camera that the TV crew uses when filming the action, and the other is from the High Speed camera that the network uses to allow the commentators to do a better job on their swing analysis. The full speed swing was filmed live, and I am playing it back here off the DVR. The […]

As Seen on TV: Brandel Does Tiger Wrong Again

Why would you want to take the best player in the world and question his swing every time he hits a bad shot? I mean, why wouldn’t you look at it and try to figure out why he’s better than everyone else? Brandel’s statement here is that Tiger is not driving the ball well because he is lowering in his backswing as well as in his forward swing. I have shown time and again that Tiger has always done this. In this video I go back to Tiger when he was a junior and find him lowering both back and down just like he does now. If this doesn’t shut Chamblee up about the lowering thing I don’t know what […]

Swing Analysis: Tiger’s Driver vs. His 3-Wood

Scroll down for the post, but also do check out the sample excepts of what’s on the site for Premium members and please consider joining. Become a Premium Member today!   I pulled some nice shots of Tiger teeing off at Firestone a few weeks ago and it gives us the opportunity to compare his driver swing, which has taken a lot of criticism for its lack of consistency and accuracy, and his 3-wood, which has been his go-to club in most situations that haven’t required extra distance. It is apparent that his overall motion, with the hands leading the clubhead into the ball and the shaft leaning forward, is more conducive to compressing the ball off the ground, or […]

Swing Analysis: Matt Kuchar’s Radical Swing Change

Scroll down for the post, but also do check out the sample excepts of what’s on the site for Premium members and please consider joining. Become a Premium Member today!   So how do you stay under the radar with a swing change as radical as what these videos show Matt Kuchar has implemented? Easy: you just have to be almost a superstar (but not quite), relatively uninteresting in the personal gossip column, and you have to just not tell anyone what you are up to. I would be fascinated to talk to Matt about what he has done with his swing and why, but suffice it to say that I believe it is a great move on his part […]

Swing Analysis: Jason Kokrak

Scroll down for the post, but also do check out the sample excepts of what’s on the site for Premium members and please consider joining. Become a Premium Member today!   There seem to be more and more guys like Kokrak playing their way onto the Tour, extra- large physically while being technically sound with a fluid motion that produces what appears to be effortless power. I really like his posture at address, and I will show this to students to demonstrate an athletic stance, ready for action with the weight out onto the balls of the feet. Jason’s swing is notable for its compactness, with a huge early turn of the upper trunk with a ton of ground compression […]

Testimonials: Jim Miller

Wayne: Thanks for the reply. So many questions and so little time! Just got in from the course after the easiest 74 I’ve shot in a long, long, time. I’m all in and have bought / watched / practiced / videoed myself doing the start – stop drills on the PCS DVD’s and especially the impact drill. Ditto how to “flatten” the shaft/clubhead back to the address shaft plane by working the right arm onto the right chest as the hands fall. Brilliant!. I’m not totally there yet as it took me about 20 range hours to even begin making reliable progress. It’ll be more weeks till I’m even remotely close to having the correct hip action ingrained to some degree […]

Testimonial: Ron Mullins Jr.

I found your site by accident while surfing through golf videos. I was intrigued by your analysis of a swing and searched for you on the Internet. I found your site and quickly joined as a member. The next several evenings were spent watching video after video. I learned more about the golf swing in three days then I had learned in almost 30 years of playing and lessons. Many of the conventional myths, such as keeping your head level, have been shown by you to be false by the use of videos of great players over several generations. With much enthusiasm, I have begun to work on correcting the swing myths I had been working on. My father is […]

As Seen on TV: Kratzert on Woods: Head Steady? I Don’t Think So

I find it hard to believe that a guy who fancies himself as a golf “expert” would put such wrongheaded nonsense out for public consumption. Bill Kratzert is proving himself to right in there with Johnny Miller, Nick Faldo, Brandel Chamblee, and the rest of the bunch when he steadfastly maintains that Tiger’s head is “steady”, not moving to the right or up and down when in fact the very video he is analyzing proves him to be totally wrong. I mean, the video is playing, Kratzert is commentating, and what he is saying has nothing to do with what Tiger is doing. When Kratzert says that Tiger’s head doesn’t move to the right, the video shows that it does: […]

The Golf Posture Pod: A Great Teaching and Training Tool

“In the box” is a phrase I have coined to highlight the importance of having the hips stay deep during the swing. If the head stays out over the ball the deepening of the hips produces an increase in posture during the swing, which means that the head of the golfer will lower both in the backswing and in the first part of the downswing. The Golf Posture Pod is a device that allows you to train this movement while visually measuring whether or not you are being successful at your attempt to deepen the hips during the swing. If you have watched any of my lesson videos you must have noticed that a common mistake among amateur players is […]

Swing Analysis: Tiger Woods Wins at Torrey Pines 2013

Not much to say here except that this is the best golf swing I have seen (of course, this is my opinion: that’s what you get here at WDGLC) since Hogan. I can’t imagine how the rest of the competitors, and that includes Rory McIlroy, are going to beat him if he is even somewhat “on”. It would appear that his short game, putting, and shot making abilities have returned full force, and his swing is better than ever, and I include any of the years that people will bring up, including 2000. I realize that he played better in 2000 than any other year (“played” in italics) and hit the ball great, but I think his technique is at […]
