But that’s okay — just go to my Smashwords author page. I posted this video in a post last week and promised I’d get back to it. First, here again is the video of Patrick’s three different driver swings.

Now let’s look at the keys to each swing separately. The slinger draw is a huge low hook. Patrick says he aims WAAAAAY right — as much as 30 yards! Yes, that will work but it can be a bit tricky for some of you. Let me offer another method that some of you might find easier and a bit more consistent. You’ll still want to aim out to the right — to the left if you’re a lefty — but there’s another way to get a low hook. Stand a little farther away from the ball, which will make you swing more in-to-out than normal.

Then experiment a little with your ball position. You’ll need to move the ball a bit forward in your stance, but probably not a whole lot. You want to find a spot where you can square or close the clubface slightly at impact. The high bomb is a high, long draw. Patrick moves it forward, tees it high and swings hard, again with that hard release you get by twisting your forearms.

Finally, the butter cut is the fade with the Palmer-style helicopter finish. Patrick aims the clubface at the flag and makes sure his swing path — which means his stance — is aimed way left. The helicopter finish isn’t as dramatic in the video because he’s indoors and not swinging as hard as he does on the course. Note that Patrick has a natural draw that tends toward a hook, and he doesn’t find it easy to play a fade. That’s why his approach sounds so dramatic — he has to overdo everything to make sure the ball fades, and even then sometimes all he can manage is a straight ball. That happened to him a number of times at the Masters. If you don’t have a natural draw, you probably won’t need the extremes Patrick uses.

You may not need the helicopter finish at all. A little practice on the range should tell you how much you need to exaggerate the address position and moves. As you can tell, none of these swings is particularly difficult to understand. The guiding key here is that, whatever your natural shot shape is, it’s the other shot shape that you’ll need to exaggerate. Natural drawers of the ball, you’ll want to focus on Patrick’s technique. But you natural slicers, you’ll want to focus more on my suggestions, simply because you don’t naturally create such a dramatic release of the club at impact. One other thing: Don’t try to learn them all at once.

Pick one of them, work on it until you can play it with some degree of consistency, and then you can try learning another of the swings. Adding one dependable shot shape to your repertoire is better than adding three undependable accidents waiting to happen. Yes, the LPGA is back with more primetime golf. The Lotte Championship is not only in Hawaii, which is five hours ahead of the normal Eastern Standard Times I post here, but it’s a Wednesday-Saturday event. As usual, Tony Jesselli has done a fine preview of the event at his blog. I will simply note that defending champ Cristie Kerr set the tournament record of -20 at last year’s event and, knowing what is possible, it will be interesting to see how low the ladies go this year. The two missing champs, Ai Miyazato and Suzann Pettersen, are retired and on maternity leave, respectively.

And new major champ Pernilla Lindberg will be playing, as will Inbee Park, so we could see those two battle it out again. GC’s four hours of live coverage begin tonight at 7pm ET. LPGA is being broadcast this week. That’s good news for us LPGA fans! Though many fans worry about the swing problems Tiger and Lydia have gone through recently, their problems are neither serious nor permanent. Today I’d like to take a quick look at them.

I’ll start with Tiger, simply because he just came off a Masters performance that shocked many people. If you read my “5 to Watch” post about the Masters, you know I didn’t include Tiger as a favorite. After some personal debate, I have decided not to include Tiger in this list. While he has improved much faster than I expected and I won’t be surprised if he does win, he doesn’t make my “5 to Watch” list.

Because I still see him making strategic errors coming down the stretch in regular events, and I suspect he’s still learning how his body reacts to adrenaline after the fusion. For the record, I do expect Tiger to contend this week and I expect getting a “major rep” will help him start winning the regular tournaments soon. But I feel that he’s still one, perhaps two, majors away from being a serious favorite in the big ones. So, barring any wins before the US Open, I’m targeting Carnoustie as a realistic chance for a Tiger major. And Tiger knows this as well. He has repeatedly said since he came back that he knows how to get into contention but, once there, he has to get the job done.

But he can’t do that until he gets his “feels” back. He’s talking about controlling his adrenaline, pure and simple, because adrenaline changes how your body feels. The fact that Tiger got to play the weekend should help him here. Unfortunately, the only way to learn to control your adrenaline in a major is to play more majors. But since major “feels” are more extreme than weekly event “feels,” just having one major weekend under his belt should help him zero in on how his adrenaline levels affect his “new” body. I suspect we’ll see more consistent performances in the regular events pretty soon.
