I don’t know about you, but I will definitely be catching “Long John” Daly’s debut on the Champions Tour next Friday.
I unfortunately didn’t get into watching TV golf until after I caught the bug in the mid-late 90’s, so I didn’t get to enjoy either of JD’s major victories, and by the time I started watching, he was already spiraling, so most of what I’ve seen of JD has been… not his best.
However, as a fresh-faced (hey, I try…) rookie on the Champions Tour, I’ll get to see one of his milestones.
By the way, have you checked out Daly’s pivot action in the lower body on the back swing?
JD’s Awesome Pivot
As a matter of fact, if not for the down swing angle, he’s got a near-perfect pivot himself – but the back swing definitely is, by itself.
JD’s Awesome Pivot II
Of course, JD uses the Classic Golf Swing technique, not the horrid Modern Golf Swing, and he has a great floating pivot, though not as pure as Ben Hogan’s.
