You know what kind of golf they could still be playing in their 50’s, if they swung with a mechanically-correct model, the way Nicklaus and Snead did, and the way Vijay Singh has done?
Improving impact will get you more distance, and faster, than trying to increase club impact speed.
I met someone while I was in Southern California last Friday.
Ken Joersz (or “KJ,” as I call him) has been a Head Professional at the Four Seasons’ Hualalai Resort in Hawaii, as well as having held the position of Head Pro at PGA West in La Quinta, CA, and finally Head Pro at Pelican Hill G.C. in Newport Beach, CA.
Still enjoying the thrill of having caddied for a pro in a PGA Tour qualifier… doesn’t get much better than that for a golf blogger, let me tell ya…
I have some advice for someone who’s thinking of caddying – it is not as easy as it seems, and you’d better be able to read some putts, and you’d better know your player’s swing.
Well, the bad news is that BT’s round of 73 at Bear Creek G.C. in Murietta C.A. was three strokes shy of Brian Smock (former PGA Tour player), who snagged the single spot to the PGA Tour Farmer’s Insurance Open.
The good news?
Lots of that. While I discuss, there are some pics of BT warming up this morning before I turned my phone off for the round.
OK, so when Jerry “BT” Crowell and I began to talk about working together, he stated a personal desire to achieve 115 mph club cruising impact speed and a top speed of at least 120 mph.
At the time, he was around 110 cruising speed and top of less than 115.
“No problem,” I said.
Now, I’m not saying that the MCS “Ultimate Leverage” swing model will make you a PGA Tour player. There is more to the game of golf than just the swing.
You have to factor in course management (John Daly, great swinger, not-so-great manager), short game, putting and of course heart and grit.
I can’t give a player the intangibles, I deal with the swing. But if you have a solid swing, then your success or failure on the golf course will rest on things other than the swing.
