Robert Allenby Driver Swing Analysis

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

Robert Allenby is one of those guys who don’t win often but ALWAYS finishes up at Top 10 at most PGA tournaments.

Let’s look at the Aussie’s swing.

At address, Robert looks pretty good with a textbook setup.

At takeaway, Robert is in perfect plane.

At half-way, Robert goes slightly upright but it’s okay.

At top os Robert’s swing, he is slightly upright again but it’s acceptable.

Half-way down, Robert is poised nicely for an inside-out hit.

At impact, Robert looks perfect.  I love this position where hips and shoulders are just slightly open while the left arm and the club are very straight with the right elbow bent slightly.

After impact, Robert’s club is on perfect plane, standing very tall.  All great stuff, no wonder this guy’s always on the leaderboard.

Finish looks great.  Now, Robert Allenby’s swing really reminds me of Stuart Appleby’s swing.  Is that because they are both Aussies and the fact that both of their last names end in “by”?

Lol… we never know but Robert Allenby must be a distant cousin of Stuart Appleby for sheezy.

Here’s Robert Allenby’s Driver swing in action:

U.S. Open – Tiger goes Birdie, Eagle to finish at Top!

Sunday, June 15th, 2008

As predicted, the top players of the world came up to the top except for Stuart Appleby, who had a miserable day shooting an 8 over par, 79.

On the bright side, Tiger managed to birdie and eagle the last two holes to finish up at the top.

Mostly likely Tiger will probably win tomorrow at this point but it’s still hard to tell if his knee will keep up.

As predicted, Rocco Mediate goes on to make a lot of mistakes near the end, where he goes about 4 over par over 3 holes. With Rocco’s second-grade swing, there’ no way he will win the U.S. Open.  Don’t call me biased but his swing is something not to look at.

And if Tiger doesn’t win, it might be a crap shoot of players who tee off early and get to play the course before the greens get hard and fast.

I still think Tiger might win tomorrow, although I want him to. There’s just too much knee trouble but who knows, he might get real lucky like his chip shot on the 17th today.

Tiger at One Over at the U.S. Open and I found my Swing!

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

Well, I spent 3 hours watching Tiger today on TV.  Although he doesn’t seem 100% yet due to his knee surgery, he did okay today by shooting 1-over.  Phil Mickelson shot an even par while playing with Tiger.

My Prediction This Week?

Tiger won’t win the U.S. Open because he just got back from his knee surgery.  Man, talk about getting back too soon I think…

Phil?  Nah, Phil’s not gonna win it either.

I think it’s either going to be someone who’s unknown or Stuart Appleby might win it at this point.

Oh yeah, btw, I found my swing today.  I am swinging like Tiger and Ben Hogan!

Today swing keys:

1. Really feel the triangle on the backswing.  Make sure to rotate in-plane.

2. On the downswing, really feel like the both left and right arm form a triangle and hit the ball with the same force, sorta like basketball 2-handed pass.  I did this and hit the ball like super straight and hit it a mile too.

3. Same thing with short pitch shots.  Really feel the plane, rotate, then just swing through with arms extended.

Stuart Appleby Driver Swing Analysis

Stuart Appleby has one of the most simplest swing in golf and he’s one of my favorite swings too.

The greatest thing about the Aussie’s swing is how “tall” he stand over the ball and during the swing too.
