Cameron Champ Swinging More Classic Than Modern Now!

A hearty thanks to Mr. McJohn, who found the following clip on Youtube and forwarded it to me this morning.

I was very pleased to see some changes in Cameron Champ’s setup and mechanics in the rear view of his driver swing – let’s take a look, shall we?

This Is Big – Golf Digest Publishes The “X-Factor” Study

Well, I had just told Mr. McJohn in a comment yesterday not to hold his breath on any major golf publications or channels discussing the results of the so-called “X-Factor” study we read about in the BBC

And lookie here, friends – Golf Digest through GolfWorld courtesy of Joe Beall has just published a piece online doing exactly that:

Awful Swings & Analysis @ The Farmers (Tiger Woods)

If you are a Tiger Woods fan, better to skip this posting, because watching golf today had me shaking my head.

By now, I’ve probably said it a million times – how does Tiger Woods wonder why he’s always hitting the ball left when he has a “swing left” move and also takes the club back with a closed face?

Cameron Champ Could Be Even Longer (Shot Data)

I wrote about Cameron Champ last year after seeing him in the ’17 U.S. Open, and he’s going to be playing on the PGA Tour next season – which means you may see him pretty soon with the wrap-around season!

Now, there’s no reason that a kid hitting it 350 yards carry distance would need any more distance, but find me one person, even among the longest hitters, who didn’t want more distance with their swings.

Here’s A Tight Back Swing (Anthony Kim)

I know most people won’t have heard of Anthony Kim if they are new to the game (new meaning in the last 5 to 8 years), and he’s no longer in the game, but I ran across a clip of him swinging.

All I could think about watching it was, “Now, that is a tight back swing!”
