I was almost shocked when I saw this swing of Scott’s on television: not because of anything Scott does, but because it is filmed with a stationary camera from the proper angle (behind the hands) and the proper distance away from the player. Imagine that! So, what we get to do is a standard Wayne D. analysis without the problem of camera angles and moving cameras, and we can really see just how good this is and how he has improved from the last time I analyzed his swing. The big thing here is that he has fixed the upper body back-up that he used to have in both his backswing and forward swing. Now the swing hits all the right spots and looks about as uncompromised as you will ever see. It’s not the most dynamic swing on Earth but it is starting to get a flow that looks more athletic than placed, a bit like Tiger’s move. There is definitely compression going on here as his head obviously lowers both back and down (not as much as Tiger’s) and I’m sure that many would consider that an improvement over Tiger’s perceived “dipping” problem, although as I have noted many times in the past Tiger’s record would suggest that whatever he does is probably a good idea. Nonetheless, Scott has risen to the top for a very good reason: he has a wonderful swing that should produce great shots when he needs them the most.
