Dustin Johnson Grabs #1 – Jason Day Fading

dustin johnsonYou all know that I used to be very high on Jason Day, to the point where I was saying, in a stock market term, that I’d be buying Day and selling Jordan Spieth, even with Day’s back ailments.

But that was then, and this is now – I predicted that Dustin Johnson would pass them both, and now he has, with his win yesterday to take the Genesis Open title at Riviera Country Club.

Farmers Insurance Weekend! (Watch DJ 3-Putt Torrey South 18)

1st Tee Torrey Pines South CourseI can’t believe it’s already the PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open week at Torrey Pines on the South Course in La Jolla, California.

It seems just yesterday I was 3-putting 18th hole to cap off a fabulous day following a young college player around as he played 18 with his swing changes.

To Henrik Stenson – You Can Swing As “Hard” As You Like, Properly…

henrik-roryHenrik Stenson has weighed in with some advice for Jason Day and Rory McIlroy, and it shows the problem that modern golf swingers are having distinguishing “swinging hard” from “swinging soundly.”

I see this all the time, “injuries are a price to pay for playing golf at a high level,” and it drives me nuts.

More Modern Swing Fail – Ariya Jutanugarn, Rory McIlroy “Swing Like Girls”

Britain Golf Womens OpenI 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 reverses destroys the assertion, don’t you think?), and of course the accompanying bafflegab that you come to expect from modern swing circles.

Jason’s Days Numbered (Out 2 Months W/Back Injury)

jason day**Tiger Woods Update at Bottom

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.

Just What I Figured – Jason Day In His Own Words

jason-day-backThose 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.

Aaaaaaand – Jason Day Goes Down Again

jason dayI hate to see it because you all know Jason Day is my favorite Tour player – when he’s able to play.

He has just withdrawn again, this time from the season-ending Tour Championship after 8 holes in the second round, and who knows when we’ll see him again…

Deja Vu – Jason Day Goes Down Again

jason dayRemember when I said I would buy Jason Day if he were a stock, and I’d be selling Jordan Spieth?

Well, I still wouldn’t buy stock in Spieth, but I’d be considering unloading my Jason Day stock if I had it, because Jason has gone down again, withdrawing from the BMW Championship with a bad back.

Guess Who’s Back? Jason Day Makes Big Move On Day 2

jason dayWell, 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.
