Well, I had just told Mr. McJohn in a comment yesterday not to hold his breath on any major golf publications or channels discussing the results of the so-called “X-Factor” studywe read about in the BBC…
I wrote a post about Cameron Champ’s prodigious length last week and made the point that he could indeed get even more distance out of his swing with better impact conditions.
However here is a point un-made that I think is even more valid: he doesn’t really need more distance, but with an improvement to his impact conditions (and shall I say, swing model), he could get the same distance with less effort.
You’ll recall it wasn’t too long ago (two weeks, actually), when I blogged about noticing a new terminologyin TV golf swing analysis – that of “vertical lift” to excuse the “flying foot” symptom of several notable pros, and to make that swing flaw into something positive.
I guess anyone watching the weekend’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational noticed that the announcers seems to be focused on Tiger Woods and his apparent stiffness, lack of energy and other things on the weekend.
I will admit that I only saw much of him on Thursday, because the weekend had me busy with family things and working on the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video.
I had made mention a little while back when word came out that Tiger Woodshas been taking ibuprophen “all day” on the advice of his surgeon, to combat possible back pain onset since his return from the 4th back surgery, that one a spinal fusion.
