    Posted: 22 June 2006 at 3:54pm

Once the arms have dropped into the slot during the transition down... instead of swinging the arms down and up to match the backswing with the body rotating in unison... can a 2 planer adopt the 1 plane move instead and rotate the body and swing the arms down and around left at full speed? What would be the advantages/disadvantages of this hybrid swing? What fundamentals/adjustments would need to be made to make this an effective swing?

When Tiger makes his new backswing and transitions down into the slot... it is arguably about as perfect as it can get. Why couldn't he just rotate his body and swing his arms down and around left at full speed like a 1 planer?

I would estimate the biggest downside would be the element of timing. Because you are not on plane during the downswing, you have to wait for the arms to drop. If your body rotation gets out of sync with your arms you are going to be in for some squirly shots.

Hogurt,

My friend, you hit the proverbial nail on the head. Timing is the big issue and Tiger's power comes from how fast he rotates his hips/lower torso. With the irons, he has little trouble syncing the arms with the hip rotation due to the slower rotational speed of the hips. However, the driver is another animal altogether. He rotates his hips at such an incredible pace that he has problems timing the arms and hands thru the ball. Hence, shots sprayed all over the course. No problems with him hitting the stinger, shorter more controled swing. Frankly, Tiger hitting that 3W stinger 280-300 yards, I don't see why he even carries that big driver.

Regards,
Magic
