The question will invariably arise in the wake of Brandel Chamblee’s book on the Classic Golf Swing and how terrible the Modern Golf Swing is – “OK, so where are the classic golf swingers?”
It’s all about technique, not brute muscle power, if you’re looking to increase your speed and distance in your golf swing.
I told you all about Blake’s specs – 5’10” and about 140 lbs (a generous estimate, he says himself on his mass), and how he was pumping out drive after drive over 300 yards – including the show-stopper, his 330+ yard pop from the Black (Tour) tee box, uphill and into the sea breeze on Torrey Pines South course’s 12th hole (Par 4, over 500 yards).
I just followed Blake around Torrey Pines South course, where he shot a 1 over par 73 playing from mixed black and blue tees.
So, I have told the story about how, with MCS, you’re virtually finished with the swing when you set your address over the ball.
I proved it again on Monday when I accompanied Blake on his practice round at Rancho California.
