It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing

It seems as if Tiger has taken one of the great swings in the history of golf and systematically destroyed it.

I had a tennis teacher a few years ago who said, “I don’t need to see you play. Just tell me where it hurts and I’ll tell you what you are doing wrong.” At Schlesinger Pain Centers we treat a large number of amateur golfers and it has never ceased to amaze me how well I can correlate their injuries with the flaws in their swings. While I am not a golf professional if you look at the progression of Tiger’s swing I think that you will agree that the swing has become shorter, steeper, faster and more violent. Contrast this with the classic swing of Sam Snead one of the most successful and durable players in the history of the game. Perhaps Tiger should have been taking lessons from Duke Ellington rather than the flock of fools he has followed.
