I was browsing through GolfDigest, wondering what horrors I would find within the current online edition, and I wasn’t disappointed – and I don’t think GD will ever ask me to contribute to their content, which would be more a compliment than insult at this point.
I found yet more Modern Golf Swing “Fail!” in the form of a nonsensical analysis of how to “swing like a girl,” wherein more examples are given of male swingers (3) than of female (zero, which sort of reversesdestroys the assertion, don’t you think?), and of course the accompanying bafflegab that you come to expect from modern swing circles.
Well, it turns out that the “tweak” Jason Day claimed to have suffered changing diapers was a little more than that.
It is odd that nearly all of the articles I’ve read today state incorrectly that Jason has a ligament “strain” in his back, when it is in fact a tear, and you can point directly at the way JDay swings for that cause.
Those of you who have the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing,” or “MCS – Perfect Pivot,” which are Parts II & III of the “MCS Trilogy,” or even if you have the MCS Secrets of the MCS video short “On Separation,” then you’re going to nod your heads at this next revelation.
I got up this morning after having having witnessed yesterday’s train wreck with the World #1 ranked player withdrawing from the climactic event of the FedEx Cup with yet another back injury, and what I read from Jason Day’s own words yesterday nearly dropped me out of my chair.
Well, this again is why we play the tournament before awarding the trophy – there is no such thing as a guaranteed pick, even in the days of Tiger Woods (he may have won 14 majors, but 14 out of 46 means he wasn’t guaranteed to win a major between ’97 and ’08).
I was betting on Dustin Johnson continuing his insane run, but he’s apparently come back to earth (as will always happen) and won’t be playing this weekend.
