When it comes to the Classic Golf Swing, I’ve always used Jack Nicklaus as an example of a near-optimal motion, but there’s someone else who has been overlooked, even though I mention him quite a bit.
That person is Greg Norman, who is considered to be the best ever driver using a persimmon club when you take into account driving distance and accuracy.
There are two issues here – consistency & injury risk.
Taking a look at his latest video proffer, I can’t imagine what it must be like trying to hit a ball at full speed and still having to worry about and perform that leading foot twist through impact.
Someone needs to pull the Mad Scientist aside and tell him he’s going to completely wreck himself if he keeps on his current track.
Someone, anyone – do him that favor and stop him going the way of Tiger Woods.
His impact & follow-through phase are truly, truly nightmarish. Follow me over the break for some scary stuff.
