I look back at my swing from 1993 and think, “All I have to do is clean that up a bit, make some putts and I beat everyone.”
Now today, meateater says essentially the same thing I thought.
What a great golf swing. Man, is that transistion at the top quick. Honestly, I think most people would say there is a little too much lateral movement, although the camera angle is not ideal to judge it. The issue is you want to tame it a little for accuracy without destroying a beautiful athletic move. The whole sad history reminds me of Michelle Wie, who could seriously challenge PGA Tour pros at age 14 but now, after a few years of “topnotch” instruction, can’t even contend on the LPGA. Her swing is a mess compared to the incredible athletic move she had as a kid.
