The Modern Golf Swing industry (and Golf Digest’s Alex Meyers) are whom I’m referencing here, of course – they always pay lip service to the greats of the Classic Golf Swing era while completely ignoring what made them greats to begin with.
Before I get to the Golf Digest laugher, what made them great? The way they swung, either in the game or how they taught it, and Harvey Penick is one, in his first “Little Red Book“ on the swing.
Make no mistake – it was a great run, featuring the probably best 10 year span ever, and in totality the 2nd greatest career of all time with 14 majors won, but it’s a wrap.
No surprise to anyone paying attention, but if the usual boosters are not saying anything positive right now, and if they’re in fact saying things that seem a little ominous, I imagine we can roll up Tiger Woods’ playing career now for posterity.
In the latest installment of “will he or won’t he?” I’ll go and predict we aren’t going to see Tiger in this year’s Masters toonamint, and if he doesn’t play in the Masters more than two months following his “not-so-serious back spasm” incident in Dubai, I’m expecting a retirement announcement this year.
I’ll be working on getting the “MCS Dropping The Hammer” video formatted and uploaded to the site by sometime today (could be late be today’s the day!), so this can serve as an Open Thread until I have returned to regular posting.
How long ’til he announces retirement from competitive golf?
