CLUBHEAD IS OUTSIDE THE HANDS
Under Chris Como, Tiger kept the clubhead more outside of his hands in the takeaway than he did when working with Haney, who encouraged him to work the club more inside. Tiger’s left shoulder ignites the backswing. Allied to his improved posture, this enables him to keep his width and to swing on his optimum biomechanical plane.
Maintain the takeaway width
Check out the extension of Tiger’s left arm and how his right elbow has yet to bend – a sure sign his left shoulder has ignited the swing.
Use the rectangle drill for coiling power
This exercise will give you the feeling of a powerful coil. Rotate your left forearm 90 degrees and turn your right arm so your palm faces outwards. Split your hands so the shaft and arms form a rectangle.
Keep the rectangle constant
The key is for the rectangle to remain constant. Turn your left shoulder underneath your throat with a full shoulder coil. Keep your right knee flexed. This is like stretching out a huge catapault.
