I wasn’t disgusted with my form swinging the club after 5 weeks off when I spent a couple of days in Chicago two weeks ago and had the opportunity to hit balls at Medinah CC courtesy of my host Cory C, but let’s say I wasn’t happy about it.

I’ve said before that golf will never be taken seriously as a “sport” (although it was for a brief period during the height of the Tiger Woods era) because it doesn’t follow the same athletic principles.
On this PGA Championship moving day, I thought I’d look back at a particular golf swing of a player currently T4going into Round 3..
With all of my personal angst regarding finding and building an “optimal” golf swing, I would like to stress in this posting that “optimal” simply means to me, the best possible swing action you can make with regards to efficiency, speed production and accuracy/consistency.
That doesn’t mean that a swing that isn’t “optimal” is bad – when I say a swing is mechanically-sound, but not optimal, I mean that I fully endorse a swing action like that but that it could be even better.
I am posting another full Skype session with Fluffy a.k.a. T.Ferguson, from yesterday.
There is more to the title, but the essential element I got out of what Fluffy can do to get more power out of his natural swing action is the “dropping the shoulder” action that goes hand-in-hand with the aggressive move into the leading side.
I’ve been watching the action in the final round of the Open Championship, and it seems that, while he’s hit a couple of shaky shots to end his front 9, Tiger Woods incredibly seems on course to bagging his 15th major tropy.
