Will McKenzie is leading today over at John Deere Classic. He shot 65 yesterday and 64 today.
Let’s look at his stack and tilt swing to see what makes him “tick”.
First of all, I’d like to say that Will has a really simple looking swing, it looks really good.
At address, you will notice that Will stays real “balanced” in the center, not tilting his shoulders much. This is great way to swing. Now, pay attention to the triangle formed by his arms and the club.
At takeaway, Will breaks his wrists slightly early but that’s not a problem as his triangle looks great.
At top of Will’s swing, Will looks really good, with little or no backswing weight transfer (his head stays in the same position as at address) and he has a really great “width”. Notice how far above his head the hands are.
At half-way down, Will looks pretty good again although his right foot could be more relaxed.
At impact, will really gets his hands ahead of the ball but stays in perfect balance.
After impact, WIll’s follow-through is a mirror-image of his takeaway. Again, great stuff.
Will’s finish is probably one of the best I’ve seen. His standing almost perfectly vertical as you can see the line formed by his legs and upper body. This is really good for playing golf when you get older and also helps your back. (no straining your back when you finish like this)
Overall, I am really impressed at Will’s swing because of his rhythm and simplicity. He makes it look “easy”.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he won this weekend, good luck Will.
