Therein, I compared Sergio at 37 to Tiger Woods at 38 (the age TW was when he broke his back working with Sean Foley), surprise, surprise!! Sergio just won his maiden major tournament, at the old age of 37…
Congratulations to Danny Willett on his 1st major victory in taking the 2016 Masters!
If a man ever entered a major tournament under the radar, it was the then-11th world ranked Willett, who now goes to #9.
And the world #2 (again) player, sadly, doesn’t know quite how to swing a golf club, although he has two major trophies on his resume already, while the nearly-demoted to #2 player in the world (but still #1 – Jason Day) has a swing that is tearing up his lower back, and the #3 player, with 4 majors on his mantel (Rory McIlroy), can’t decide which way to best miss the most of the putts he strokes.
Update: Lest some think that my complaints are about Augusta National G.C. or the tournament itself – NO.
My problem is with how the modern equipment has brought us to where Jordan Spieth can be on the verge of winning his second straight Masters title, with no golf swing of which to speak. Carry on! /update
I read a very interesting comment by Gary Player yesterday from the GeoffShackelford blog, and I think it illustrates perfectly the dilemma faced by Modern Golf Swing advocates – they have to admit that players are breaking down swinging this way.
I didn’t hear the original comments by either Brandel Chamblee or Frank Nobilo, but I can assume that Player was responding to the implication that players are over the hill after 30, whomever did so.
