Jeff Overton is one of those young guys on the PGA Tour who haven’t really proved themselves yet but have a lot of potential to do so. Let’s look at the young star’s swing.
At address, Jeff sets up with his hands way ahead of his ball, an unusual setup.
At takeaway, Jeff breaks down his wrists early.
At top of his swing, note the position of his head.
Look at how far his head has dipped at half-way down.
At impact, notice that his head has dipped probably around 5-8 inches from his backswing.
After impact, Jeff does pretty good in extending the club.
At finish, Jeff’s left foot AND right foot has slided about 10 degrees to his left, sign that he needs to work on his footing.
Jeff Overton’s swing may not be the worst on tour but he really needs to work on not dipping as much and his footing.
Clearly, this isn’t a swing that can win majors or any PGA tour tournament unless his short game and putting is just like a miracle.
With some swing changes, this young man could really win some tournaments though. It’s hard to believe even that he made it to the PGA Tour with this swing.
