4 KEEP LEFT KNEE FLEX AT IMPACT
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.
