Backswing
Around the Academy:



Ken Brown

Like most of the top professionals, Tiger takes the club away in a very low, slow action.

The idea is that you sweep the clubhead away, accelerating as you go, rather than yanking it back.

Keeping the clubhead low means you will get a nice wide arc - the wider the arc, the more power you can create.

As he takes the club back his eyes remain on the ball and his head hardly moves.

And you'll see that as he nears the top of his backswing, the angle of the club is the same as it was when he addressed the ball.

It's almost like looking in a mirror.
