He's really soft at address, arms relaxed. I always liked how he kicked his right knee in to stay braced throughout the backswing.

This has a little "old-school" look with the one-piece takeaway and everything moving together off the ball.

Textbook. This is what halfway back in the swing should look like. Great sequence, great width, great hinge and really centered.

Perfect top of the backswing position. This would match up against the best from any generation.

The lag in the transition here is a little exaggerated. But great separation between upper and lower body. Legs moving forward toward the target and rotating, while shoulders and upper body stay back.

I love how he lets go of the angle through the ball. It creates a really shallow angle of attack into the ball at impact.

Great balance and a follow-through that looks in control. This is a neutral position that's the result of everything being synced up nicely leading up to the end.
