Congrats to Blake Elliott, who just bagged his 2nd NCAA Division 1 individual title for McNeese State today in the 34th Annual Louisiana Classics event!
That hashtag is bang-on, by the way – with his 2nd win in 4 events and a 4th consecutive Top-4 finish (W, T4, T4, W), I would qualify that as being “on fire.”
Blake Elliott – Torrey Pines South Course
Here’s an update on Blake Elliott that I’m delighted to share with WAX Golf readers who were following his exploits back in the summer 2016.
You’ll recall we spent a couple of weeks working on his swing in California then Texas after his freshman year at McNeese State. and how his talent and athleticism just blew me away.
It’s funny that people were sending me clips or emailing me about OSU’s Matt Wolff last week considering my talk about the concept of “Big Legs, Little Arms” last winter and into the spring.
I’ve been getting emails from the usual WAX Nation swing hawks regarding a freshman college player named Matt Wolff whose OSU Cowboys won the NCAA title last week.
So, I really have to post a swing video clip of Blake Elliott, whom as I mentioned I consulted with on his swing a couple of weeks back on my trip to Southern California.
The question will invariably arise in the wake of Brandel Chamblee’s book on the Classic Golf Swing and how terrible the Modern Golf Swing is – “OK, so where are the classic golf swingers?”
