We’ve been waiting for John Daly to do something noteworthy since he turned 50 and hit the Champions Tour last year, and it took awhile, but he’s poised for his possible 1st victory today going into the final round of the Insperity Invitational.
I don’t have anything personally invested in any golfer, but John Daly is a sure throw-back to the long, classic golf swing of yesteryear, so it’s always a pleasure to look at his action when he’s swinging well and not throwing clubs into lakes.
Being self-taught, he is a prime example of how, left to one’s own devices, you’re going to develop and classic golf swing and not the tortured, frozen-hipped modern golf swing of today.
John Daly vs Jamie Sadlowski
I could watch that back swing all day, because it’s such a great floating heel pivot with the free hips, and of course, he is nearly flawless in his action when he gets it going.
Long John leads Kenny Perry by one and they’ll be paired, so watch the difference between Perry’s back swing, which looks put-together and a little strained (at least, if it looks the same as it did when he was playing the regular Tour), compared to JD’s effortless power production.
Go get’em John!
