I finally got around to going through my DVR of this year’s Masters, and what follows here are some random observations. I thought it was an exciting and fascinating tournament with lots of different techniques and personalities battling it out throughout the week. There is still a bunch of interesting stuff still to go over so if you enjoy this one stay tuned for a couple more. Join the forum discussion on this post
I was thinking about why the Masters is such a must-see event, and I came up with this huge list of compelling reasons, which made me realize that hey, that is precisely the reason we can’t miss it. It literally has everything that makes golf the great game that it is, plus the familiarity that can only come by holding the event on the same course every year. It is the first major of the year, and after a long cold winter the anticipation has grown. We want to see the great ones go head to head and we have watched the tournament so many times that we know what they are facing on every hole, indeed on almost every […]
If you thought Mickelson was talented and could do amazing things with the ball he’s got nothing on Bubba.
It was a great Saturday at the Masters with McIlroy, Sergio and Couples blowing up while Hanson, Mickelson and Oosthuizen played some great golf and really put on a show.
You won’t find two more different swings, but both players seem about as relaxed and nonchalant as anyone out there.
A 67 for Westwood and a 68 for Louis have them holding the 1 and 2 spots after day 1 at the Masters, so they get the look-see in this video.
I’m sure that Mike realizes good players lower during the swing. I’m also sure that after watching this he wishes he had been a little clearer on just what he was discussing, as it certainly seems like he’s saying Scott’s head is not going down at the exact moment that it is.
Bobby Jones, one of the all-time greatest golfers. He is the only player to win all four major championships in one calendar year and co-founded the Masters. In this swing analysis, we see how Bobby’s golf swing differs from the modern day golf swing, yet still displays some of the same characteristics of all great ball-strikers. Head lowering, hips in the box, right arm action, forward lean and more, a lot of the same factors you see in all great players you see in Jones as well.
In this video we look at Cabrera’s swing in all its free flowing, old school glory as he rips into the ball with gleeful abandon.
In this video I take a look at Charl Schwartzel during his brilliant Masters win, focusing on two particular shots and the pre-shot routine he uses before each.
