4 KEEP LEFT KNEE FLEX AT IM­PACT

Golf World (UK) - - TIGER WOODS -

Be­cause Tiger now has a more bal­anced and or­tho­dox golf swing and doesn’t need to jump at the ball quite as much as he used to through im­pact, he doesn’t clear his hips as quickly as he did when he was younger and more flex­i­ble. At his peak, Tiger’s hip clear­ance was 50 per cent quicker than any­body else’s on Tour. It’s now much eas­ier for him to sync the club to the body and the arms. He’s not as wild as he used to be through im­pact.

Keep the left knee flexed Tiger’s left leg used to snap straight at im­pact. Now he is able to hold the flex in his left knee for longer. Hit prac­tice shots with your knees to­gether My favourite drill is hit­ting shots with the knees to­gether. They can move a lit­tle in re­sponse to the coil of the torso, but they mustn’t sep­a­rate. If your wrists don’t hinge cor­rectly, you will top­ple over. Re­hinge the wrists into a full fin­ish If you don’t re­hinge your wrists to the fin­ish of the swing, your shoul­ders will dom­i­nate and you’ll lose bal­ance. Once you per­fect this drill, you might won­der why you don’t play like it all the time.
