And yet he constantly tinkers, sometimes going to a planted-heel swing (and winning nothing, I might add).
Some of you might find this interesting – I have long held out three players on the PGA Tour, namely Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh and Bubba Watson (another one would be John Daly, but he has been irrelevant for so long, and has now turned 50, as did Vijay a few years ago, so I rarely mention JD) as models of the “Classic Golf Swing,” apart from the modern swingers.
And now word comes that Phil Mickelson, who had a sports hernia operation in October, has had a 2nd procedure to treat the same injury, which has me suspicious – about the cause, not about whether he had a hernia or not.
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).
Thanks to Pat G. for sending me the link.
Wow, I’m loving this from Phil Mickelson!
I just mentioned in this morning’s earlier posting that Phil Mickelson, the second in career majors among active players (if you count Tiger Woods as “active,” which is a stretch, but whatever), is a classic golf swing adherent.
