Tiger Woods - Back to RST

Tiger said in his press conference on Tuesday at the 2015 Phoenix Open, that he is having a lot more fun now because his clubhead speed is back! In the new video, I'll show a great new look to Tigers backswing and I'll show you how it mirrors the RST model swing almost perfectly. We knew that if Tiger wanted his speed back that he must get into a much more vertical position at the top of his swing. This will hopefully save his body in the downswing and keep him healthy for the 2015 season.

  • Lower body stability
  • Hands and arms more into vertical position 
  • More speed with less work

Are you sure Tiger is not working with Chuck? I watched Tiger's first tournament in over a year and right after his first swing said "that is what I'm trying to do". It looks exactly like RST

Hello Michael. He probably has seen one of our videos. But, no Tiger is working with another instructor that has adopted similar principles to RST.

Can you recommend a video which explains what I should be working on on the lower body to post up and release, rather than rotate? Thanks.

Hey David -- The straight left leg at impact, sitting into the left side, how the lower body works, squat to square video will all help expound on this situation. Let me know if that does not help and I will do what I can to get you more info.

I am curious that if Tiger has returned to an RST swing, why has he re-injured his back? Does the Tiger squat to square which we are working on, put undue stress on the lower back? Please help me understand this situation. Thanks.

Hey David -- Tiger is now moving the top of his swing into a more vertical position. He has still not sorted out what he is doing with the lower body down in the hitting area. If you watch him closely, he is still rotating his hips at impact, rather than posting up and releasing. While he is still rotating, he is trying to make his hands work left. This move is making his lower back compress. We certainly hope Como and Tiger get to work on that part of the swing next.

I hope he overcomes this back injury once and for all!

Hey Andrew -- It's hard to see him struggle around the greens so much right now. He has always had amazing short game. I think he is battling with his mind and a little case of the yips. I hope to see him get mentally tough on the sooner side and also hope that Como can get lower half stuff a little more tuned down in the hitting area. We shall see.

RotarySwing golfers. This is RST instructor Chris Tyler giving you a second look at Tiger's newly built golf swing. And, I got great news for you guys, it looks likes he getting back into almost a full RST form with his swing.

                I know in the previous years when we were starting to look at his golf swing, we started to see a little bit flatter, and a little bit deeper, of the position of his hands and his arms at the top of the swing.

                He openly spoke about his speed coming back in his press conference yesterday. It's going to be attributed to a really good solid position at the top of his back swing.

                This is going to be our second look at his new move here, and I've got to model swing over here on the right hand side of the screen, so you can really see how it's very similar to what we're doing here at RST.

                I'm going to go ahead and work Tiger into the takeaway, here. We're going to look at some of the similarities. There's a completed take away. Model swing wise, this is of Chuck Quinton, the founder of RotarySwing.

                A couple of key points to take a look at. If you look where the club head is in line with the hands. Elevation point is pretty much spot on. Also, notice lower body. Lower body looks very, very stable at this point. You can see that left leg starting to move just a fraction. Hips have rotated, maybe five degrees or so.

                Tiger has always had a ton of lower body stability, and this is a really critical move for you golfers at home that have always noticed that you're seeing too much of your lead leg. End of the take away. That's really going to show you that there's some pelvic instability. Double check to make sure that you're loading up your trail side properly.

                From this particular move right here, you're going to see, he moves his head and arms much more into the vertical plain. Over the right shoulder, and gets into a beautiful spot. Okay, this right elbow is much higher that what we've been accustomed to seeing. You can see his hands are up above the right shoulder. From a model swing perspective, you're going to see the exact same kind of move here. Okay, so you're going to see a very similar position, right elbow in line with the body. Using the base of the pectoral muscle there to be, kind of the elevation point that we're looking for. And, the hands up above the right shoulder, so a very, very solid position to start to work down from.

                This is a position that Tiger's not going to really have to spin his lower body really hard to get out of the way. We were seeing that, and then we were also noticing that he would have to steepen his shoulder plain, post impact to help hold the hands and arms out in front of him. We're really pleased to see this. We're really thinking that Tiger's going to do some great damage with this golf swing, and it's certainly exciting to see his speed come back as well.

                A couple of good videos for you guys to check out, is 'Five Minutes to a Perfect Backswing'. That's a great video that's going to show you how to create the same sort of swing shape, just like we're seeing from a model swing. Where you're either going to look like Chuck or Tiger at the top of the move. We also have, 'Five Minutes to a Perfect Backswing Check Points' video.

                We also have a pool noodle shoulder elevation video, that's going to talk to you about proper shoulder elevation, and give you a couple of key check points. I'm going to put those video over to the right hand side of the video player for you guys.

                Again, I just wanted to give you guys another second look here at Tiger's new RST look. We're excited to see it. Now, lets get out there and put the speed and power back into your golf swing as well. Make it a great day
