Golf Swing Analysis
Bubba Watson vs. Jordan Spieth

I guess you didn’t see a lot of swing analysis on the Masters coverage with the swing of Bubba Watson?  I just doesn’t fit the narrative.  Bubba Watson does for us though!  Play golf with the swing you got, not with some swing method or theory that might not fit your natural tendencies.

Even as nice a swing as Jordan Spieth has, you can go through a list of swing faults, (according to the gurus) starting with his grip.  One of the most basic fundamentals. 

Sometimes you just can’t teach golf by the book and we certainly don’t.  You have to treat each individual swing with the special care to not upset the apple cart unless it is extremely necessary.  Especially for the twice a month golfer.  The casual golfer will not log the sufficient number of reps to change a habit.  They may think they have, but if I followed them around the golf course with a camera, they would be shocked at how they didn’t actually make a change at all and reverted right back to their natural tendencies.

Can you imagine trying to change the golf swing of Bubba Watson?  How about Jim Furyk?  I can name a lot more back in my day.  How about Miller Barber, Gay Brewer, Lee Trevino and more.

Here’s the steps to developing a golf swing YOU can use. 

1) Determine who your swing is now.  Yes who!  Consider your swing a living organism that has a personality and certain traits you need to deal with. 

How can you get to know your swing?  Take a video of your swing with your cell phone and send it to for a FREE analysis.

2) We can make suggestions as to what tendencies are hurting you an why?  Which ones you dare try and change and which tendencies you might have to live with.

Take a look at this short video analysis of Bubba Watson vs. Jordan Spieth and you will see the natural tendencies they have.  They both have swing faults and so should you!  Was it Nicklaus that said, “golf is not a game of perfect.”  You need to know what your tendencies are and how to use them to your advantage.
