If you’re looking for longevity & a career that isn’t constantly derailed or even ended prematurely by injury, do yourself a favor if you’re swinging in the Modern Golf Swing style – take Phil Mickelson’s advice & switch to a Classic Model.
Phil yesterday only became the oldest male golfer to win a Major, taking the 2021 PGA Championship, and it’s not a surprise that he did it with a Classic Golf Swing action.
If I told you that the percentage of players on the PGA Tour who use the Classic Golf Swing principle of performing a free hip turn by allowing the leading heel to release on the back swing pivot is pretty low, you’d likely agree with me.
I like to use the term “release” or “floating” rather than “lifting,” because those two terms compared to the latter connote a passive action rather than a deliberate one.
Everyone has been looking at Joe Miller’s swing, but I wanted to show Finalist runner-up Ryan Steenberg’s swing, because there’s a lot you can learn from it (if you watch any of the MCS Trilogy swing videos, you’ll learn the same things).
I just mentioned in this morning’s earlier posting that Phil Mickelson, the second in career majors among active players (if you count Tiger Woods as “active,” which is a stretch, but whatever), is a classic golf swing adherent.
