I would hazard a guess that some of it has to do with renewed focus and commitment, but this is a guy who nearly lost his Tour card before suddenly going on a tear this year, making the semi-finals in the WGC Matchplay and then winning the Houston Open yesterday!
If you watched last week’s World Long Drive Championship, you would have seen very good form from the two Finalists.
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 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.
Ironically, I started out my swing research in 2005 looking at two swingers, Moe Norman and Hogan himself, nearly nine years ago.
This will be old hat for anyone who’s been reading my blogging for any length of time, but I’m building up a library of quick swing advice clips for the Wax Golf Channel so apologies if this is something that bores you.
There are of course lots of swingers in golf who swing with both feet planted on the ground during their back swing, but they are either people who 1) Have the flexibility to do so and 2) Don’t swing harder than they should from that kind of position or 3) they are doing it now and will pay later.
