Guess why Two Gloves’ swing works?
Because he releases the golf club properly. If he tried to hold the lag or some other BS (LOL at comparison to Albert Pujols. Kostis is running out of things to say), he wouldn’t be able to break 90…but he releases the **** out of the club and that makes up for all of those funky gyrations.
Being a little nuts, doesn’t hurt either. Imagine if Two Gloves let some guru “fix” his swing when he was trying to figure it out. He would have ended up just as big of a chop as I was between 2005-2008.
I love the crowd in Phoenix. Give me a chance to hit on 16 on Sunday someday…please?
Are we witnessing an emerging star in Mark Wilson…and/or Jason Dufner. IMO, Bill Haas is a star already and Wilson, because of his age will need to win a major to achieve that status. Don’t know how I feel about Dufner yet.
All of those waggles Dufner made on 17 kind of gave me the willies, but what a clutch shot…and how about that sand shot on 18?
That was unfortunate what happened to Two Gloves on 17. Before you rag on him too much, that is really easy to do. I think he should have putted or hit a bump and run.
My good friend Frank Lickliter was on his way to a big finish until a bad stretch on the back 9 put him back a bit. It would have been huge for him to make the top 10 as he has lost his card.
I would not want to hit a fairway bunker shot on 18 when I needed par to tie. How about the nerves of steel on the first playoff hole on that 5 footer? Then he birdies the second playoff hole to win.
Mark Wilson has shown he has guts under pressure, both here in Phoenix and in Hawaii.
I think he is perfect for The Ryder Cup with his steady and clutch play. He will probably make it if he keeps playing like this, but if it were in two weeks and he hadn’t made the team on points…I would for sure make him a captain’s pick.
