Everyone seems to have a criticism of Tiger Woods. Most often, it's become his putting or his swing.
What people aren't understanding is why Tiger is doing this. He's not trying to go back to vintage Tiger Woods golf (2000). He's trying to bring some of it back, but keep in mind his body.
He's said it, and I will say it again: Tiger Woods can never swing the way he used to. Look through the swings in the video. See how much leg power is going into that swing. Tiger generated everything from his lower body.
It's exactly why he can't now. He pushed the limits, and the limits hit him. Tiger has now had I believe four surgeries on his knee, including one in 1994 to remove a tumor.
All of these surgeries have made it hard for Tiger to swing using his lower body like he used to. What Sean Foley has brought to Woods is the opportunity to find a balance between maintaining a great swing and potential for high level performance in exchange for a few yards.
With his new swing, Tiger can now play well into his 40s. The swing with Foley does not use nearly as much leg drive as Harmon's did, and it will do wonders for Woods to perform later in his career.
