Bubba Watson is probably one of the longest hitters on the PGA Tour today. Let’s look at his unstable swing that makes the ball go far.
At takeaway, Bubba transfers his weight far into his left leg. This might cause him to miss a lot of shots.
At the top, Bubba’s almost falling over his left side. Not good, but maybe the only thing it’s good for is distance.
On half-way down, Bubba’s head is still over his left foot or even slightly outside. This is asking for disaster in pro golf.
At impact, Bubba looks like his swinging a sledge hammer, not a golf club.
After impact, Bubba is completely out of balance with his right foot sliding forward and hit left foot coming out.
This is probably not the swing that’s going to win whole lotta PGA tournaments unless Bubba learns to control his swing. It’s not about the distance, it’s about scoring low every week.
If he did however change his swing to be in more control, he should be able to win a lot of tournaments.
