Find out about Vijay's $10m swing
Around the Academy:

Vijay Singh is renowned for being the first on the practice range and last off it.

His dedication saw him win nine titles in 2004 earning him a record $10m.

So we asked golf coach Nick Bradley to take a closer look at his lucrative swing.

Vijay's swing contains more flow, rhythm and instinct than the whole of the European Tour put together.

In other words the 'whole' in this case is more important than its isolated 'parts'.

Although Vijay is technically sound in his set up he displays some swing characteristics that would explain why he has to practice more than any other Tour pro.
