  1. Check out the book The Flexible Golf Swing by Roger Frederick
  2. Sam Snead's brother, Homer, seemed to think so: "No bowlegged man can swing at the ball the right way. Just no way. If you're bowlegged you might as well go fishing." But keep in mind he was very opinionated on the golf swing
  3. FWIW Hogan in Power Golf suggested setting up knock kneed and having the knees work toward each other during the swing, and Snead recommended similar.
  4. Took the words right out of my mouth. I'll add Mickey Wright right behind him though. Her swing was technically flawless but even by her own admission it was a bit on the manufactured side. My favorite current day swing is Hannah Green's. Can't beat the simplicity and efficiency.
  5. Hardly, it can be a valuable tool in setting the rhythm for the entire swing
  6. This Osaka drama is a bunch of BS. She didn’t want to face any difficult questions about her poor record on clay surfaces, so she withdrew while doing people with legitimate mental health issues a disservice.
  7. 100%. I've believed for a good while that she's the most talented player on the LPGA Tour. When she's playing at her best she can put on a show.
  8. You won’t find a bigger fan of Ariya than I. She’s got the firepower but It seems like she’d struggle to hit it in the middle of the face. Very very happy to see her win again. I hope this means she’s regularly contending again.
  9. Before Bianca arrived on the scene, I would have agreed 100% with you. What I would give to see an Ariya v Bianca pairing with Ariya pulling driver and able to hit it solid.
  10. How does gravity contribute to sucking it inside on the backswing?
  11. Not confidence inspiring. Back when Ariya won the USWO, she had a Trackman measured drive of about 158 mph ball speed with her 3 wood. If she ever had the courage to break out driver, that would put her just above 110 mph, just below the PGA Tour average.
  12. since I’m taking swing speed or ball speed how about trackman data?
  13. Where’s the data to support that?
  14. I was answering a question someone asked about Patty’s swing speed. Mentioning them is completely relevant seeing that they are two of the longest/fastest on the LPGA Tour, any opinions about their golfing ability or similar notwithstanding.
  15. Your guess is just pulling numbers out of thin air then. If she actually had a driver CHS of 110 mph with 158 mph BS, that would give her a poor ( by pro standards) smash factor of 1.44, when the LPGA average is 1.48.
  16. Not disagreeing but my comment was not intended to address some subjective evaluation of length vs accuracy just hard data.
  17. Favorable conditions, seeing that top average driving distance last year was 283 yards.
  18. On Saturday they showed her driver ball speed at 158 mph which is about 105 mph driver CHS. Which seems to be at least 5 mph lower van Dam, Fassi, and Bianca.
  19. I'll give a shout out to Milo Lines, he's really good.
  20. This Overhand Golf dude doesn’t know what he’s talking about and worse, he talks out both sides of his mouth because it’s just stream of consciousness monologue. In his No Shoulder Turn Swing video, he says to keep the trail shoulder back to start the downswing and it goes down and turns through as the club is released. In his Shoulders Don’t Turn Like You Think They Do video (which is it? Do the shoulders turn or not?), he contradicts himself by saying that during the downswing the trail shoulder should swing down and then up like an uppercut motion. There’s n
  21. And because a "quiet lower body" is supposed to be a virtue.
  22. I’ve had a couple of those but didn’t stick with it for long. i strongly recommend the sidewinder pro and grip twister. I haven’t tired of using them for 6 years.
  23. I recall an IG Live that GG did earlier this year with Chris Como and he said something akin to JR and MW having completely different pressure patterns
