Analysis by Top 100 Teacher Mike Perpich
Tiger's Athleticism, extreme workouts and explosive golf swing have made power his trademark. His resulting domination of par 5s, and of storied tracks like Augusta National, The Old Course, and Pebble Beach, only add to his reputation as a big-league slugger. But if you were to take a look at PGA Tour results for par 3s, you'd find that Tiger is almost as much of a standout on the short holes as he is on the long ones.
And while Tiger's ability to master the short holes as well as the long ones is a testament to his incredible short game, it also speaks volumes about the quality of his full swing and iron play in general. This sequence provides a glimpse into why Tiger is consistent — he has total control of his body, which results in maximum ball control. Take a close look at what Tiger does, particularly at address and the way he transitions from backswing to downswing, and you just might find something you can use to improve your own technique.
