He’s now got another win in the early ’19 season, taking the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a Classic Golf Swing action (using the hips & legs to power the swing rather than lower back twisting with restricted hip turn).
I blogged a few posts last year on Francesco Molinari winning the Quicken Loans and also the Open Championship with his excellent Classic Golf Swing action.
Well, imagine my amusement when I tweeted on the perils of the Modern Golf Swing last week and received a response from Molinari’s swing guru, Mr. Denis Pugh, on the merits of swinging in the Classic style:
I wrote about Francesco Molinari’s great Classic Golf Swing model when he won the Quicken Loans last summer and then in the same month, the Open Championship, and while I’ve never heard anything he has to say about the swing…
Out of the scenarios I pointed out yesterday during the final round of the Open Championship, I completely overlooked one possibility, because he was playing such a quiet and overshadowed-by-his-playing-partner-Tiger-Woods round of golf.
