Just Put That Dumb Guy On That Dumb Guy - Golf's Ugliest Swings


Posted by Dexter Francois | Posted in , , , , | Posted on Monday, February 28, 2011

Everyone has their own authentic swing. I have heard golf instructors say that the only thing that matters in the swing is how the clubface impacts the ball. There have been many golfers on the professional tours that have been successful with less than perfect looking swings. The one thing that they all have in common is that they get themselves into a position to deliver a solid strike.  

Lee Trevino's swing was hideous. Gary Player should never give anyone a lesson on the golf swing unless it is out of the bunker. Arnold Palmer's head moved more than a bobble head doll. Yet they were all great champions because they knew how to "move that dumb guy to that dumb guy"(That last statement will make more sense once you watch the video).

My former swing could have easily ended up as a part of this video. I had all kinds of moving parts. Elbows flaring. Twisting forearms. Head bobbing. It was nothing pretty. Personally, I'll continue to work on the mechanics that have been taught to me because I am getting better results and I prefer to look good while on the golf course. Call me superficial I guess.

Enjoy the video. You have probably seen it on The Golf Channel but it never gets old. I especially like the Peter Jacobsen impressions. I wonder if he can do my old swing. Have a great round and always hit your target.
