This is great – how many times have analysts used Modern Golf Swing principles to critique the greatest players in golf’s long history?
Now we have Jon Rahm (although he likely didn’t write the piece with his name on it) calling Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, and Tiger Woods (among others) nothing short of “weekend players.”
Not directly, but then again, that’s what happens when you either let others do your writing for you, or when you don’t really know what you’re talking about – take your pick.
I was struck by Jon Rahm’s swing and power yesterday when I took in a bit of the Dean & Deluca at Colonial.
He first came to the attention of many with his power shank off the tee with an iron last summer at the Quicken Loans, but what I saw yesterday was a much better move than what I saw back then.
Anyone catch the Quicken Loans National last weekend?
I happened to watch it here and there and, incredibly, I was watching it live on TV when Jon Rahm hit the first ever Shot Tracker shank caught on televised golf coverage.
It wasn’t pretty… if you have any qualms about watching shanks, you can stop right here…
