60?

I don’t care what the course is like. 60 is not bad. Mr. Cantlay can play. He obviously showed that during the US Open.

He also showed that following up a joke of a great round with another good round is really hard.

I didn’t get to watch any of the golf this weekend, but wanted to comment on how great I thought the 60 was.

I also wanted to point out that the guy who won the tournament has a golf swing that stinks when using the criteria being used by most everyone in golf circles. He doesn’t have massive lag and he moves all over the place…but he gets it to the hitting zone which is all that matters.

I don’t think most of the people involved in instruction both as pros and aficionados are concerned enough with the last phrase.

They criticize swings that get the ball to the hitting zone perfectly for really inane reasons…and glorify swings that have technical merits yet get the club to the hitting zone poorly.

I have a controversial post on the grip tomorrow. I am bound to create havoc and ire with what I say. 😀

It definitely falls under the category of my new motto: “I am through worrying about offending people who don’t like me anyway.”

    “He moves all over the place.”

    If you’re talking about his “spine,” maybe re-think it…with help from someone you have respect for, Mike Bennett.

    I don’t buy all of it, but at about 2:25, he says the spine is moving “all over the place.” There’s something to that. Maintaining spine-angle is a restriction, and a nasty one.

    I like Jacobson. He looks like he’s really enjoying himself and is always totally involved in the moment.

    Can’t wait to see your comments on the grip as I have some contrary views myself. 🙂

    Monte,
    Interested in what you think about Yani Tseng’s swing. That girl absolutely dominated this past weekend.
