Evolution of Tiger's Swing
By mustang6560 on 3/1/11
Golf Digest put together a short video compilation of the evolution of Tiger's swing. If you watch the video, Tiger's swing doesn't look drastically different. Yet, Hank Haney has to defend his tenure as Tiger's swing coach.
Anyway, here's the video.

Early swings has a MUCH less drop of the head.
Oh, that guy plays golf?
The head pro at our course is always preaching to keep your head still. Young Tiger had a still head. Haney version moves sideways and up and down.
It almost looks like he brought the club back further too.
OMG those aren't even the same guy!!! What a difference in swings!!!
It looks like he played his ball further forward in the early clip, with a lot of lateral movement to get it centered. Interesting.
WOW!! Cool comparison!
It's also worth pointing out how much his body has changed since the 90's! He was a lot more flexible then, compared to now. His chest size now probably makes it a bit harder to get that torso twist he used to achieve, which I'd guess is the reason he dips his head so much now to get more power through the ball...
it looks like he went from a very controlled swing when he was young to a progressively wider, more free swing with Haney. now it looks like it's trying to go back to a more controlled swing again. he's definitely more centered over the ball with Foley. but he looks more like Barkley with all that head bobbing.....
