The April 2012 issue of Golf magazine includes a swing sequence of Justin Rose with a couple prominent mentions of Stack & Tilt.
Namely, the headline says.”With a newfound belief in his stack-and-tilt swing, Tour veteran Justin Rose may be primed to win his first major.”
In the body of the article, the writer states, …..”Justin has developed a motion that closely resembles the stack-and-tilt method of Andy Plummer and Mike Bennett. In his backswing, Justin neatly pivots around his spine while keeping his shoulders pretty much centered over the ball. Coming down he aggressively shifts his weight toward his left side and slides his hips to the left more than you normally see, even with Tour players. That’s because Justin’s goal is to get all his weight onto – and all of his force against – his left leg, the hallmark trait of the stack-and-tilt.”
Well, that might not be exactly the way we’d describe it but no doubt Justin is showing off the ten words of the Stack & Tilt Golf Swing: weight forward, shoulder down, hands in, arms straight, and tuck hips.
The editors at Golf magazine no-doubt love the timing of this story, which was likely written in January given the lead-time of magazines; hitting the street right on the heels of Rose’s recent win at Doral.
