    No question Senior moves his head left quite a bit. Nelson's moves a little, but it did move. It might have been because of his intention to extend his left arm down the target line as long as possible. That was a completely different intention...

    The head moves a little left in the first swing, and in the iron swing at about 6:30. I don't like the term backing out either BTW, it is moving left but not back or up....it stays down. It does move left. Hogan's head didn't. Knudson's head...
