Another “Expert” Says Jack Nicklaus Didn’t Know How To Swing

I had another blog post planned for today on Moe Norman’s “master move,” but this couldn’t wait.

If you want to know why I am perpetually sounding grumpy on my blog, it’s because of things like the clip I’m posting below the fold. ¬†Thanks to Wax Nation member A.M. for forwarding it.
