  1. If bruce and Bryson play together I will give her $10k to play this song…. also, Rick roll every euro
  2. *** disclaimer: I’m not a teaching pro and many of y’all will notice my golfing vernacular is that of a lay person…but hopefully my point comes across although the iPad can’t understand my [hick] texas accent so grammatically this will be ugly *** I know I’ve talked about the reverse c all throughout this topic but why was it such a ubiquitous move for so very long??? Well, it was 2 fold. The first and most obvious reason is kids and tour players wanted to swing like jack… but why(other than the obvious) well, the reverse c offers 2 critical factors which affect the swing at impact position… the first is the long flat spot created by hanging back…this was more necessary than most wrx members can imagine because shafts were so very whippy when all physics came into the equation back in those days… in order to create conditions thru impact u had to hang back and wait(heck, hold on with all u could) before releasing…. Miller often brags that in copying jack his swing was faster after impact because his hold off dictated the conditions that led to this.. The second is that it allows u to lengthen or shorten the swing with little change to the lower body. The hips will always move so ur distance is simply a matter of length…and whether u hammer it or feather it, the hands never release before impact… hanging back allowed u to turn ur hips [which increased shoulder tune if needed]while still being able to square the face at impact… most of the hyper aggressive reverse c swings like Miller or Norman saw stacked feet, ridiculous shoulder turns and crazy [way] past impact release that would literally twist their left shoe free despite wearing metal spikes… ***bryson has adopted this left foot slide thru impact… anyhow, the hanging back and long flat spot allowed for a high ball flight and shafts in those days would kick much later/longer swinging like this rather than a swing like palmers that had to be timed perfectly… When shafts stiffened up in the late 80s and wound balls went away a decade later, the reverse c faded… here’s a montage of the man that made many of us swing like this way…which is how I always [tried to] swing…and never had so much as a back ache ————— monty or vijay saw the swing into the modern age and niemann may usher in a new reverse c era….it still is, imho, the most consistent way to have the face square/straight/repeatable at impact.. ————— Anyhow, here’s to ya jack…and obligatory Johnny pic to set the pics off because his shoulder turn and stacked weight was a nicklaus move he put on steroids SIDENOTE: Seve said he watched Johnny hit more drivers before their sunday round at birkdale in 76 than seve hit on the range…he said it was the coolest swing he ever saw but this is a post about jack and why he did what he did…it was glorious…and the consistency in form is insane…this is how all the great reverse c swings were It’s crazy that u could lay a silhouette of Jack’s 1966 swing over his 1982 swing and they are indistinguishable…. **again, Sorry for grammatical errors…im not editing my “essay” -chris
  3. 1975 PGA Championship at Firestone After breaking Weiskopfs [and millers] heart at Augusta, Jack did it again… jack wasn’t going to lose in his home state of Ohio… this may have been the absolute height of his power… poor crampton finished 2nd to Jack in 3 majors in 3 years if memory serves… dang jack was on fire… -chris
  4. Told y’all Mito Pereira was good -chris
  5. Joaquin Niemann has the best swing on tour since Johnny Miller imho and niemann will be number 1 in the world within a few years his fellow countryman Mito Pereira has an awesome reverse c too… it’s just neimanns is bananas awesome…. I’m rooting for Mito…vamos! niemann pics at bottom…dude is a Jacklin/Miller clone…totally badass swing mitos is awesome too -chris
  6. Poulter tends to do well in any pairing format but, as his euro teammates will attest, he is most desired as a partner in alternate shot… they say he has the best hands on and around the green in all of europe… In alternate shot, u wind up chipping and lag putting a lot so most players love having Ian on their alt shot team He is not long off the tee nor very straight….but inside 50 yards he is perhaps unmatched by anyone in the cup he will play in 2 team events and get a 3rd if he goes 2-0 or 1-0-1 IMHO -chris
  7. lowry and rory have played together since kids…they are a no brainer rahm looks up to sergio and if u pair sergios hall striking with rahms driving and putting then watch out hatton would be helped with a Poulter pairing…as Poulter tends to be a glass-is-half-full guy in ryder cup and if hatton keeps a cool head he can strike the ball…and Poulter will do the putting that’s what I’d do anyway with those players -chris
  8. my dad had a blue 78 marquis 4door sedan….it had shudders over the lights with Mercury logos…it was glorious it was the deep blue like this one
  9. he is very very good… but he’s comparing himself to these two: look at Jack’s major finsishes…he was top ten In every major except 5 between 70-81…all but FIVE….that’s insane Likewise tiger in the 2000s brooks is not on the same planet and, as I said, it’s borderline offensive to my golfing sensibilities that he would be compared in any way to jack or tiger.. again, brooks has had a very, very good stretch of 4 years….but to compare him to them is absurd -chris
  10. it should be noted I once owned a 1990 mustang gt 5.0 kudos on your avatar…
  11. Phil always had proper perspective regarding tiger… as did trevino, Miller, jacklin, watson and weiskopf re Nicklaus
