First off, congratulations to Jason Gore. He had a putt on the 72nd hole to win in a playoff at the Wyndham. It was his highest finish on the tour since winning almost 10 years ago. Who’d have thunk a long drive champion was capable of helping a tour player get back on track with a pitching and wedge lesson. I did very little (provided some direction), as he caught on immediately, but it’s gratifying to play a small part in the success of getting someone back to where they should be at a high level.
This is a big issue that leads to the 68 Ballerina move. The right knee working toward the target too soon. I used to think this was a positive thing, but it is not. In order to sequence properly, the distance between the knees should increase to start the downswing.
Rory, Keegan and my boy Lickliter are poor examples of this. Snead and almost everyone else are good examples of this.
