Read the Book's Introduction
I had seen Tiger Woods play golf many times before the 1996 U.S. Open at Oakland Hills Country Club, just outside Detroit, Michigan. I had watched him compete at junior tournaments, amateur tournaments, and even a few professional events over the prior six years. But it wasn’t until that U.S. Open—on the Friday of that week to be exact—that I noticed something in his swing that would stick with me for a long time, and end up becoming the basis for 1 Step to Swinging Like Tiger.

Tiger played with John Daly and Corey Pavin in the first two rounds of that tournament. Theirs was a highly anticipated grouping, with John and Tiger playing long ball against each other on the lengthy South Course at Oakland Hills, and Corey, the reigning U.S. Open champion and one of the best players in the world at the time, using his creativity and skill to try and carve up yet another difficult major championship layout.

As is the case at most major championships, it was difficult to follow any group—let alone a group as popular as this—because of the large crowds. Spectators were lined up three deep from tee to green on most holes. I knew I had to think ahead if I was going to get a good view of this threesome hitting any shots.

I wasn’t interested in watching them putt, nor was I excited to see them hit an iron shot into a par-3. I wanted to see them all crush a drive. I wanted to be at a hole that I knew players needed to use their driver.

That hole turned out to be #8. The eighth hole at Oakland Hills is a very difficult par 4 of around 460 yards in length. It bends slightly to the left, and also goes slightly uphill. A big and accurate drive off the tee is required.

I arrived at the hole when Tiger, John, and Corey were still on hole #6. I lined up directly behind the tee box, in perfect position to see each drive fly into the distance. The anticipation was building.

The tee box at #8 is slightly elevated, which directed the spectator’s line of sight upward, toward the sky, in the direction that the ball takes off. It was a slightly different perspective than simply standing behind someone who is hitting, and I could notice this subtle difference as I watched the players tee off in the groups ahead of Tiger’s threesome.

As I watched these players hit their drives, it felt as if I was looking beyond the player and out to where the ball was traveling. Usually I just stare at the player and watch his swing closely. In this case, their swings seemed to appear in the periphery of my vision; almost subliminally, like looking at an autostereogram visual illusion, in which a 3D image will appear to pop out of the flat pattern behind it, once you “unfocus” your eyes.

When Tiger hit his drive a few minutes later, I had the same visual experience as I had with the players who came before him. His swing popped off the blue sky in the background. I could see the motion of his body throughout his swing perfectly, because, ironically, I was not focusing on it. I was focusing on his shot. I was watching the perfect draw he hit far into the distance.

To this day, I have never forgotten that swing. It was amazing. I can still see the ball sailing down the middle of the fairway, and Tiger making a large exhale after he picked up his tee, perhaps acknowledging to the crowd that yes, indeed, he did smoke that drive. But most importantly, I can still see the unique motion he made with his hips and shoulders throughout his swing, and how this motion put the club in the perfect positions and created tremendous clubhead speed through impact.

Since that experience, I have become fascinated with Tiger’s swing. I have analyzed what he did as a junior, as an amateur, and all of the changes he has made as a professional. And even with all of the changes and tweaks, I have noticed there is one thing that has remained constant in his swing; one thing that has not changed. This also happens to be what I saw so vividly at the U.S. Open in 1996, and it is what I am going to share with you in this book. I hope you will find it beneficial to your game.
