1984 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…

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”

Probably posted half of these back in the early days of this thread, but the board changeover would've eaten them anyway.

 

I just love Seve.  Polar opposite of YJS in personality, but YJS is the only one of the current guys whose game reminds me of Seve.  Can be wild off the tee, but totally unafraid to hit any recovery shot he can dream up, and just a preternatural knack for getting the ball in the hole around the greens.  See for instance that moon ball of a pitch in the Ryder Cup.

This picture and accomplishment that will never ever be repeated in professional golf. Period. This picture should also have Tiger with the 2000 Canadian Open trophy for full effect.

 

All other pictures in this thread pale in comparison. Pictures of swings are great. A picture of never to be repeated obscene dominance is in an absolute master class of its own.

1984 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass

 

Freddie was paired with Seve on Sunday and beat him by 3 to win…at age 24

Pretty amazing….

trevino shot a 76 on Thursday and still dang near won…

 

great tourney and lots of players who go on to be commentators on tv had excellent weeks…

 

freddies 120 degree shoulder turn was and still is bananas

hus follow thru is maybe the coolest…well, second to Monty…but Freddie’s is awesome too

Mac O'Grady, Don Pooley, Bobby Watkins.

 

3 players in the group I was the standard bearer for at the 1989 US Open.

 

O'Grady & Pooley were great.  Watkins not so much.  Mac & Don made a point of introducing themselves to me & the walking scorer on the first tee.  Watkins never said a word to us.  I guess he was too important to do that.

I remember watching the paltry highlights of this before going to school one day in the lead-in to my A Levels. Balearic Open. Marathon play-off. Parnevik with a bagful of Eye 2s and a Mizuno TP-9 sand wedge that he used numerous times from the right of the 18th green...
