I hit my 3 wood all day off the tee as well as off the fairway and was thinking about this issue since yesterday’s round. This is so helpful. Thank you.

You said setup and stance effect the release position of the hands. Does tigers having a narrower stance have anything to do with the way he drives the ball now? What would you change in his swing? Where did folley go wrong?

Would you ever advise a higher lofted driver with an open face (draw bias). You could then use a similar release action (like Schwartzel) without the fear of smothering it.
