“I told [Charlie], ‘Don’t copy my swing. Copy Rory’s,’” Woods said. The 15-time major champion claimed he couldn’t move as well as McIlroy. He never noticed his close friend off balance during his strokes.

“Have you ever seen Rory off balance in a shot?” Woods asked. “Not ever. That’s one of the things my dad instilled in me, is that you should be able to balance and hold your finish until the ball rolls and stops. You can swing as hard as you want, but you need to have balance.”
