All of his power has unloaded and he continues to roll out on his left side. Note the backward tilt of his spine. This tilt is necessary to sustain balance through his swing, but adds stress on his spine and interior left knee. As Tiger's hips continue to rotate, his spine angle starts to move to a more upright but still tilted position, his lateral motion stops, and his balance begins to neutralize. Notice the subtle flare of his left foot in his finish. This flare is the body's natural move for balance.
