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:

Hunter Mahan Driver Swing Analysis

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

Hunter Mahan is another upcoming PGA Tour pro. Let’s look at his action:

At takeaway, we can see clearly that Hunter like to follow the “yellow” plane.

At halfway up, you can see that Hunter manipulates his arms to get the club on-plane. (with the red plane)

At the top of his swing, we can see clearly that Hunter is pretty much on-plane with the red-plane.

Halfway down, Hunter is slightly inside the plane, perfectly good for a nice little draw.

At impact, Hunter looks pretty good, maybe his right arm could be little bit more straighter.

Hunter could benefit from a 1-plane swing. Simply by changing his takeaway to be more on-plane with the red plane, he could do more with less work.

Here’s Hunter Mahan’s swing in action:

Golf Book Review – Tiger Woods – How I Play Golf

Tiger Woods - How I Play Golf

I remember when How I Play Golf came out to the bookstores. I immediately bought one and I think it’s a very good book Tiger has put together.This is a must to get. If you don’t have one yet, GET IT NOW!  Tiger will teach you everything from trick shots to health fitness.  Although I DO NOT recommend you to copy his swing mechanics unless you are under 18, there’s so much short game and putting in this book that can help your golf game.

There’s no denying that Tiger Woods has taken golf by storm. It seems like every time this 25-year-old swings a club, another PGA record is shattered. While his explosive drives, accurate approach shots, and steady putter certainly contribute to this success, both fans and critics agree that it’s Tiger’s devastating mental game that has propelled him to become the premier golfer of our time. Now Tiger shares his thoughts on what he calls the game of a lifetime. He reveals the five secrets he believes are responsible for his success-a combination of physical, metaphysical, and psychological practices he uses daily to keep his game in top shape and help him to transcend all the ups and downs of golf. Best of all, Tiger reveals his unique approach to the game for the first time ever in this one singular volume.
