The Memorial just goes to show that you need to have lots of lag to play good golf and have lots of eagle chances.
Wait, that is complete BS, Steve Stricker was having eagle chances all over the place and his swing sucks because he has no lag.
Wait, everyone who thinks lag is the be all end all of golf swing pursuits drank too much paint as small children. Yea, that’s it.
It was nice to see another old fart do well. I know Brandt Jobe from back in the day at UCLA. Happy to see him do well.
…and Matt Kuchar. That is a horrendous golf swing for a guy that tall. BFD!!!! The guy is probably the most consistent golfer on Tour right now. He found a swing that works for him.
I played with him once before. Really nice guy and I am happy he did what was necessary for him to play well, instead of a cookie cutter approach. Some might say, “Hey Monte, you have some cookie cutter approaches to things.”
That is true, but you have to have some general principles and mine starts with do what your own personal physique wants to and avoid things that prevent that from happening.
Those who have take lessons from me will tell you I don’t change something that works. I try and look at what is preventing good things from happening and fix that…and it seems, that what Kuchar has done…and what I am trying to do with my game.
