Thanks to KidCharlemagne for sending the quote from the book.
Jack Nicklaus is the greatest player of all time on the PGA Tour, although some would claim that title should go to Tiger Woods.
I say, “Balderdash,” and for reasons I’ve outlined before. The first of which being, the greatest player of all time doesn’t cripple himself swinging a 13 oz golf club, a statement with which I’m sure most would agree.
I just mentioned in this morning’s earlier posting that Phil Mickelson, the second in career majors among active players (if you count Tiger Woods as “active,” which is a stretch, but whatever), is a classic golf swing adherent.
I read a very interesting comment by Gary Player yesterday from the GeoffShackelford blog, and I think it illustrates perfectly the dilemma faced by Modern Golf Swing advocates – they have to admit that players are breaking down swinging this way.
I didn’t hear the original comments by either Brandel Chamblee or Frank Nobilo, but I can assume that Player was responding to the implication that players are over the hill after 30, whomever did so.
