Matt Kuchar is suddenly leading at the Players. He credits better hip action for straighter drives:

My goal this year is to qualify for the Tour Championship [Sept. 23-26 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta]. I live in Atlanta, so playing in my town would be a big deal for me. I've been hitting the ball consistently, especially since the start of the summer. The reason? Just putting the time in on swing changes with my instructor, Chris O'Connell. Chris teaches Jim Hardy's one-plane swing method. We're getting my hips to move more efficiently and clear better. Now it feels as if my hands stay in tight to my body [a basic tenet of a one-plane swing], and then the club just whips around into the ball. This is a big reason I've been playing so well. I'm driving it straighter and giving myself more chances to make birdies.
