Follow John Daly (@PGA_JohnDaly) on Twitter!

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

Last week, surprisingly, I found John Daly on Twitter, it seems that he just joined Twitter and he’s actually twittering before/after his grueling practices and tournaments.

John just finished 2nd at the Italian Open, hurray John, keep up the good work! What can I say, John Daly is the guy who invented “How to Overpower a Golf Course with Raw Power”.

There’s couple other PGA/LPGA pros on Twitter but none of them as active and friendly and John Daly. (plus John follows you back! He listens more then he talks!)

Anyways, I have been a long-time fan of John Daly, you should follow him on Twitter too @PGA_JohnDaly. (Also check out John’s website here for his latest message before tournaments.)

Also check out my previous posts on John Daly’s swing and book reviews.

Here’s my last Twitter conversation with John Daly:

Tiger Shoots 1 Under Today, 3 Under Total!

Friday, March 27th, 2009

Well, looks like Tiger finished early today, shooting a 1-under par for 3-under total.

He’s in good shape so he should have a GOOD chance of making a come-back this weekend.

Yes, I am rooting for Tiger since he hasn’t won in a long time.

Lol…

Fred Funk Driver Swing Analysis

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

For many years, Fred Funk has always been one of the straightest drivers on the PGA Tour and his swing has never changed. (probably because of that)

Let’s look at what makes his swing “tick”.

At setup, Fred looks pretty good.  Notice that his sets with his ball outside the ball.  Kinda unusual but some pros do this to hit inside-out.

At takeaway, Fred is doing pretty good, maybe slightly inside the plane. (Plane is a little off here because the camera angle is slightly closed)

At half-way, Fred looks pretty good.

At top of Fred’s swing, his in perfect plane except that his clubface is really shut.  This isn’t great for hooking the ball but let’s find out how he manages to hit the ball straight with this backswing.

At half-way down, Fred is lookin’ good.

At impact, notice how much his hips have turned (maybe 45 degrees) and his shoulders.

Fred must really drive his hips in order to hit the ball straight but he hits straight alrighty.

After impact, Fred is in good shpae.

Fred’s swing requires a lot of hand-eye coordination and lots of lower body movement to hit it well.  Fred might need a hip surgery when he gets older due to the fact he must really drive his hips.

Don’t swing like Fred if you want to play golf for a long time but Fred is still one of the straightest drivers on the tour.
