Tiger’s Takeaway – The Secret Swing Plane

Tiger’s Takeaway

After analyzing Tiger’s swing for more than 10 years since he’s appearance on U.S. Amateur, I have found what Tiger does different than anyone else.

Somewhat similar to Ben Hogan’s Swing Plane theory (which we will also get into later), Tiger’s swing stays on this plane:

The plane is between the middle of the ball and middle of his shoulder sockets. As you can see in the picture, Tiger will not leave that plane with his clubhead during his whole swing.

This is something I’ve realized over the years after carefully analyzing his swing and haven’t seen it mentioned in TV or even Golf Digest. (Maybe this IS the secret)

Yes, this is slightly different from David Leadbetter’s 2 swing planes but it’s one thing I’ve noticed that a lot of top pros are doing this.
