Put on Your Tiger Suit

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to step into Tiger Woods' body for just a minute and hit a few balls? What if I told you there was a simple way you could learn how to do just that? To feel what it feels like to hit a ball like Tiger? Watch this video to see how!

Thanks. I've long thought that this top down view is essential to fully appreciate the golf swing as it adds the 3rd dimension that front on and DTL lack. There are other examples over on Youtube. I am afraid I don't agree that just looking at your shadow will reap the full benefits though, because it takes you back to 2D. For example it doesn't show you the path of your hands, the position of the club at the top in relation to the torso (blue line) the movement of hips forwards and backwards. Also I live in the UK where the sun doesn't shine as much as for you guys and my shadow has gone on vacation until spring. A lot of folks are practicing indoors these days and if you do then it is very easy to get a top down view of your swing. All you need is a laptop, webcam and some free software called Kinovea which makes it easy to record and playback your swing + draw lines etc as reference points while you practice. This video has inspired me to set this up again and I'll send you an example in my next review.

Hello Martin. Great. Glad you feel inspired to keep grinding away on the swing. You've made some big strides so far.

I'm struck by how open his hips are at impact. Knowing how much to try to open my hips is a challenge for me; probably because I really don't know what the correct amount of open feels like. Should we strive for Tigers position at impact?

Hello George. The goal is around 35-45 degrees open at impact.

Thanks Chuck for this video. Actually seeing the RST drills using the shadow view is instant feed back and helps me to see and feel the kinetic movements. Beautifully compliments your teaching philosophy. I too hope you can add this video to our library. This would be a super add to my daily practice drills. All the best Joe

Chuck, Great video. Can you please edit this video and draw a golfball on the grass, next to each hip on address, next to left hip after transition, and top op head at address? Then we can place 4 golf balls next to our shadow when we practice. It seems to me that there is no right hip movement of the right hip to the right, and about 4 golf balls movement of the left hip towards the target after transition. Is there a site where we can download this video? With your commentary added to it, of course.

Hello Charl. We will have more videos coming to help keep progress moving forward on how to self diagnose. I will have to find out about the video. But, you do shift the width of the pelvis in the downswing. So, you will see the hips shift more than what you would think in the downswing.

Is it just me, or does he not get the club to parallel? But you can also see the wall drill going back, the squat to square shallowing the downswing with his head moving slightly forward and then the clam drill and the ball rocket off the club face. I'm going to watch it a few more dozen times to look for the "stab the leg" movement. Great stuff!!

Thanks Alan. Glad you can see the forest through the trees now with the move.

I agree with all your observations. It’s amazing to see some of the RST drills you mentioned sequence and synchronize in such a blended fashion. You’re also right on with the “stab the leg” comment.

OMG. After watching and practicing, I played nine holes. I’m 76 and live in MS. With great results I was able to shallow the club, feel ball compression; have a natural feeling of weight transfer. I was really focused on the movement and position of the trail arm (esp. the elbow) on the takeaway and downswing. It seemingly just “ dropped into the slot.” On the course I used “vicarious visualization.” I kept replaying Tiger’s shadow swing in my mind. The results were astonishing!!

Awesome concept. Only negative could be that the shadow truly is only 2-D, so the rotational aspect of the swing isn’t obvious or clear.

The aerial view makes the rotation clear. I like the shadow for what it doesn’t show - excess movement

Precisely. This video stopped my excess movements and it allowed me to see the correct position of my hands and wrists at the top of the back swing. Added 50, yes five zero, metres to my drives!

Absolutely the aerial and shadow give the full picture. Was thinking more when I look at my own shadow????

I think the rotation is clear in the shadow as well but certainly not as much as an aerial view. But its more than enough to help guide you on the range. What it may lack it more than makes up for in other benefits. Combined with the tools i have given you this makes a great addition to the toolbox

I agree with both Thomas' and your points, BUT also what the shadow does not illustrate but the overhead view does, is the squatting move. You can actually see Tiger's tush line move back away from the ball. I do just the opposite. Thanks for the video

This is great stuff! I love the concept of watching his shadow. Watching the ball in relation to his leg really highlights the minimal amount of lateral movement. Also watching his head barely move throughout the entire sequence is way different than what 98% of the rest of us do.

Yep. As i have always said. He has just been moving less than everyone else for a long time. This makes that easy to see

I found it interesting how he makes a little mini back swing when he comes back from the full swing. That little mini back swing is also perfect. I wonder if that little move is also important to focus on.

Hello Sjahari. It basically is showing you how little the arms do in the swing. Practice some rotation drills with small arm movements is perfectly fine.

The flattening of the plane and lack of lateral movement is an eye opener!

This is helpful. You mentioned LPGA swings. In your spare time perhaps you could post some of the ladies swings. I've gone to several LPGA events and like watching their swings.
