Anatomy of the swings of some participants -
similar or different to what the male pros of last week were doing?
Anyone care to comment on these backswings - in terms of how many separate joints are being moved and potential consequences to both ball-striking efficiency and injury potential?
What seem to be the common factors?
Please post your comments here.

[On the subject of anatomically efficient positions and injury - look at Wie's kinesio-tape on quadriceps, hamstrings and around the knees, any guesses what swing-factor might exacerbate pain in the area?]
