Let’s take a look at Parker McLachlin’s iron swing, the winning swing of Reno Tahoe Open. (Too bad Michelle Wie didn’t make the cut AGAIN!)
At takeaway, notice that Parker’s clubface is actually pointing down at the ground, a little too closed. This causes lots of pulls and balls that will start left and go left. It’s best to have rotated a little more here for crisp contact.
At half-way, Parker looks pretty good.
At top of his swing, Parker is in perfect plane.
At half-way down, Parker looks great.
After impact, Parker is slightly outside the plane, meaning he swung slightly inside-out. Very good stuff.
Parker may have a pretty good swing and he has won a PGA Tour event to prove it with a round of 10 under on Friday of 62.
