Yes, that’s right all you golfing pundits: Tiger’s head is dropping as much as it ever has. The only difference is that he has evened out the amount between the backswing and the downswing. So please, don’t say that he is not dipping or dropping or squatting or lowering as much now, because he is. The proof is in the swing. All you have to do is find a swing where the camera doesn’t move and put a line on top of his head. That said, there are a bunch of nice things going on here that bode well for Tiger going forward. His club face and shaft positions in the backswing are mint: his hips get deep and stay deep all the way past impact: his hips are opening much faster on his longer shots than they have in years: and his left leg is snapping back again as shown by the left foot movement through impact and follow through. He is still dropping his hands pretty straight down from the top in transition, which if you know my stuff you know I don’t really like (I’d much rather they move directly at the ball, more outward than down), but his shaft control is excellent and the shaft is staying above his right forearm on the approach while his right arm has tons of space in front of his right hip, all of which counter the hand drop nicely. Everybody knows that if he starts hitting it good it’s only a matter of time for him to challenge Spieth and McIlroy, and if that’s the case I’m betting on Tiger.
