[Narrator] Stewart Cink, former Major winner,
00:07
big tour man,
00:08
great rhythm in his swing.
00:10
You can see a very wide base, wide stance there.
00:14
Support his height,
00:16
great move away,
00:18
big wind-up,
00:19
interesting as he starts down, little bit of a
00:22
outward movement with his right hip there,
00:24
and we can certainly see through impact here,
00:27
how much his hands and forearms work
00:29
to square the club-face off.
00:33
Excellent set-up for a tall man, really well balanced.
00:39
No rush to start the swing,
00:40
very important for everybody out there watching.
00:42
Smooth take-away,
00:44
gets to the top, we can see a little bit
00:46
of an over-the-top movement, very interesting how,
00:48
and I think more than anything else, that's
00:50
as a result of the right hip shooting outwards
00:53
as he changes direction, rather than
00:55
the left hip almost moving slightly
00:57
to the right of the target, we can see as he
00:58
starts down, watch this right hip,
01:00
it just pops out, there we go,
01:01
that's the over-the-top move,
01:03
has the face a little open then has to really
01:05
work those forearms to square the face off through the ball.
