Swing
Around the Academy:



One of the interesting aspects of a 'dead start' is in the wide arm swing action it promotes away from the ball.

Vijay's swing goes wide into the backswing to narrow in the downswing.

Many of today's modern swings have a 'tick-tock' beat to them, which lends itself to a neat controllable motion.

If you ever stand next to Vijay as hits balls, you really get a sensation that he 'collects' his energy at the top of his swing.

Golf swings usually snatch from the top when power has to be 'looked for', but for Vijay his transition is smooth and fluid.
