Tiger's swing ... through the years

Ok indulge me with my golf crap ...

Golf Magazine has a great photo layout of Tiger's swing through the years.  It has evolved quite a bit from his first amateur victory in 1995 through his knee surgery in 2008.

I'm not sure any other elite player has undergone such as dramatic swing transformation as Tiger.  He's rebuilt it at least three times, and each time it occurred after he had reached new levels of success.  In fact, the first major overhaul came on the heals of his 15 shot victory at the 1997 Masters, which instantly plunged him into a 18 month slump. 

The slump gave way to his torrid streak in 1999-2001, which then led to another overhaul and another mini dry-spell (2003-4).  That was followed by a new swing, and perhaps his best golf ever the past two years. 

And following his knee surgery last year, he again reshaped his swing, this time to take pressure off his left knee.  The results: a victory in his third start.  Simply amazing.
