Backswing
Around the Academy:




Tiger's problems stem from his backswing.

When he arrives at the top of his backswing it looks pretty but it hasn't got there the right way.

Tiger needs to work on the synchronization of his swing i.e. getting everything timed in the right order.

Imagine you're looking at a record spinning on a record player.

In the middle the record doesn't have far to travel but the outside of the record has a lot further to go. The outside needs to travel faster.

Now imagine the outside of the record being the club head and the inside as the body.

In Tiger's case everything is travelling at the same speed when, in fact, the body needs to be slower.
