Rocco Mediate Smokes Cigars and the Golf Ball•
Posted on June 13 2016
I Met Rocco Mediate and Became a Big Fan Instantly!
Rocco was chipping along side my friend Gene Sauers while at the Champions Tour and I yelled out to him, “what are you smoking?” Rocco said, “are you a cigar guy?” Is there a Cuban that is NOT a cigar guy?
Rocco immediately invited me over for a smoke and handed me two Rocky Patel Decades and they were just my type of cigar. I like what he said. “I’m only going to give you two cigars because I don’t like you.” I love it! I’m so sick of political correctness. I told Rocco one of my best jokes and we laughed while we lit up our cigars.
One thing for our students to get out of this is that Rocco’s golf swing matches his personality. Long and flowing and never rushed. Your golf swing should match your personality or make-up. You can work on golf swing positions all you want but if your tempo, balance and over all balance isn’t what it should be you’re toast.
Great tempo and balance will over come many swing faults. Take a look at the analysis I just did of Rocco’s golf swing. I’ll be sending more from the Champions Tour shortly.
Here’s the video analysis of Rocco!
