I’ve said before that you can win tournaments with the modern golf swing if you are determined to swing that way, whatever it does to your body, however…
Eventually the piper comes calling and wants his payment… then you’re where you were headed for a long way – injured because of your golf swing being horrifically unsound.
Case in point – let’s watch that swing…
Ariya Jutanugarn Slow Motion Swing
Aaaaand, I guess we can deduce with a good degree of accuracy, the source of that left knee injury… that happy little whistle, by the way, provided by an orthopedic surgeon waiting for her call…
Look at this pic below, of her at the top, and you can lay the blame for the first two problems “at the feet,” if you will, of the bottom or 3rd problem:
- Lower back strain
- Left Knee Strain
- Planted-Heel Back Swing
This is a young, very strong and very athletically-inclined young lady who, out of the blue, it seems, has come down with a left knee injury that forced her out of an Olympic event while leading after the 1st day.
The dirty details, from Golfweek online:
One of the winningest female golfers of 2016 not only won’t claim gold at the Olympics but won’t even finish the event.
Ariya Jutanugarn withdrew from the Olympics on Friday, citing an injury to her left knee.
The turn of events is especially surprising considering where she was just two days ago. Jutanugarn actually held the first-round lead in Rio after a 6-under 65 on Wednesday.
Kinda makes you wonder how the Olympic competitors in hammer throw, shotput, javelin and discus can heave all of those heavier-than-a-golf-club implements without blowing out their knees and backs the way golfers are doing these modern golf swing days…
The classic golf swing won’t do that.
And I’m not making fun of the young lady.
What happened is a shame, but wholly and completely avoidable, had she been taught how to float that leading heel to prevent just this type of injury.
