- About me
Played the PGA Tours of the world for just over 20 years. Won a few, lost a few. My own bed is great after that many years in hotels. Teaching golf now hoping to give people good information to improve to whatever standard they want to reach.
It's called 'golf' because all the other four letter words were already taken

Different story for the ones out of the vans, they're set up properly or at least better, you can see the lie angle on tv and you know the weighting is better, that you can tell by trajectory. .
I have mine from the vans...they are slightly better so they get to hold the red tomatoes...the off the shelf ones get the unripened green tomatoes.. ...
Mahan certainly has one of the better motions from this day and age as far as utilizing the body and moving the club from around his body. His right shot is from just clearing out the upper half left a bit soon at times and he cant release as well and has to hold on and steer and leaves the face open...but all in all very good.
Great pics here showing how important the function of the right arm is in the golf swing.
The right arm has a very limited range of motion swinging in the direction that we do as right handers. And as for most right handed golfers the right hand is the dominant hand- we want to HIT with it.
If you dont have range built in the clubface is always going to be closed or closing and the strike becomes more steer and stall to not overcook the clubface rotation. And of course when...
US OPEN week !!!!! My favourite test for a Major Championship because fairways and greens tend to hold up well in the long run....
I was lucky enough to play in 4 US Opens...made the cut at 1994 Oakmont ...made cut at 1995 Shinnecock Hills.... best result of Tied 16th at 1997 Congressional....missed cut at 1999 Pinehurst.
Was leading Aussie in 1997....wish I had of put a beat on because I would have had some high odds I am sure to finish high Aussie there that week......
Nothing wrong with what Gainey does
Works nicely down the legs in transition and increases the range of his forearm rotation to shallow the shaft behind him. Shaft does NOT point at the ball on the downswing- it points out across the ball as so many great players have done before. This gets the shaft nicely on elbow plane at hip high region for the 430 approach into impact. Hands return close to trunk for impact via the forearm work and shaft points in towards body centre. hands work...
