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.
I don’t know about you, but I will definitely be catching “LongJohn” Daly’s debut on the Champions Tournext 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.
As I’ve been saying, swing changes take time to implement properly if you’re not just going to perform a series of moves that make no sense to you (usual swing changes) and usually fall apart when you get under pressure.
Jerry “BT” Crowell’s journey from modern golf in search of a mechanically-correct swing has been documented here, and while he has been disappointed by how he was playing in the past year’s events, I kept telling him that it was coming.
