Vijay Singh Pro Golfer, Swing Sequence (Video)
Vijay Singh Pro Golfer, Swing Sequence (Video)

A couple of things really stand out when we consider Vijay Singh’s golf swing in Vijay Singh’s career. 2004, 2005 leader of the money list and World Golf Ranking number one, Tiger’s main rival, also won three major golf championships. And the hope is now that Vijay Singh’s golf career, isn’t overshadowed by the allegations of improper conduct, when it comes to the deer antler spray. He’s been through the mill a little bit and suspended by the PGA Tour.

Now he’s actually suing the PGA Tour as well, and I’m sure in the fullness of time that issue will play out a little bit more, but hopefully he’s career isn’t shrouded by that issue but when we look at Vijay’s golf swing and the way he plays – the way he practice, most people on the tour would agree that he’s probably the most diligent practicer – first day in the morning, last day in the evening, beating balls all day, a round of golf in the middle, comes back, carries on practicing. And although I wouldn’t necessarily consider that you should be there for nine hours or 10 hours like Vijay is every weekend, certainly the more you practice and certainly diligent practice, good practice, the better results you can get.

So whenever you get an opportunity to go out and practice your golf, as long as it’s good solid disciplined practice and you’re not standing just smashing golf balls, that would be really beneficial for you. One of the things that is actually solid about Vijay’s technique, is he makes a very wide long slow rhythmical back swing, but still produces phenomenal power. So just consider the fact that that the speed of your back swing, does not determine the speed of your down swing; and it certainly does not help your downswing.

So if you go very fast back, then the club has a hell of a lot of momentum at the top, you then got to stop and return down very quickly. So Vijay works on a different principle, he swings back very slowly, that way when he gets to the top of the backswing, he can really accelerate that club and doesn’t have to stop at going backwards to start it going downwards. So when you are swinging and practicing, work on big smooth rhythmical turns, to then get massive power in the downswing. That’s Vijay’s secret to huge powerful distance.

The one thing that he does also when he swings that I wouldn’t encourage too much of, is quite a big lateral sway of the head and quite a big head turn. Often turns his head in the back swing, almost looking at the corner of his left eye at the golf ball, before he swings down. If you can keep your head, square over the golf ball for long during the backswing, I think that would help promote a little bit more consistency, particularly with your eyes and your sure shots. Try not to feel that you moved your head too far away from the ball, because that could encourage a bit of inconsistency, and poor striking on the downswing. Keep everything a little bit squarer, and that should encourage a little bit more consistent ball striking.
