That’s great to hear, I quit Instagram shortly after we worked together and that was our main avenue of communication. She had a great work ethic and is a competitive power lifter, and even when she’s frustrated by the torture of a swing change - she’d still get back into the field and work.

I just read Tiger Wood's swing flaws were mostly due to his father's early coaching and misunderstanding of the swing, but shows that if you have the drive and practice enough and workout enough you can possibly make it work until injury eventually catches up. Tiger's swing today is much better than it was a year or 2 ago.

Unrelated, but did Tiger's flaws impact accuracy and power or just put excess stress on his body? Kind of like Mark Prior...

Scary thought to think Tiger could have been MORE dominant.
