Regards to Phil McGleno, and other teachers, but OMG Bubba looks so sloppy in the lower body. Legs all bent and wobbly, hips flying in/out, feet twisting as on the dance floor.  Good luck Bubba.  Will look for you in the winner's circle but won't hold my  breath.

His A5-A8 remind me of Boo Weekley. (His physique too.)

It was nice to see such a contrast between the top 2 in the tournament. Stadler being the big fellow that was not as flexible versus Mr gumby happy Feet.

Check out Bubba's right foot progression.

Starts flared, then squares up on the downswing

Then back to flared, then rotates even more.

Is this an exception for him or is this something he does all the time? Is it something he even thinks about in your opinion? Because it really does look funny especially the finish as if he skids out of control because of all of his speed..

I'm pretty sure he does this every time he hits a driver. Definitely not something he consciously thinks about IMO  Just a reaction to way he's using the ground and the torques he's putting on his body. You can potentially create a little more speed having the front foot square but brings about more risk of injuring yourself (and maybe even give up some low point control).  That's why you see the foot "spin" out, to avoid damage to the ankle/knee joint.

I know some long drivers that do that, one of them removes the spikes from his lead foot, so he can spin it out easier.

It's not as pronounced ... but Patrick Reed (as posted somewhere on here after the Humana Challenge - by @nevets88 I think) does something similar with his front foot.

Tiger and Rory do this as well, Tiger more. Its all about ground forces, pushing up off the ground to create speed in the down swing. The hips opening up so much and are rotating so fast they would probably blow out their knee if they didn't turn their lead foot open.

Yeah, looks similar. Man, Weekley gets some serious hands forward shaft lean there, doesn't he? Looks like he's got more 2ndary tilt than Stadler. Left hand grip stronger a tad?

Yeah Boo def has a stronger grip and can tend to create too much lag.

Looks like Mr. Weekley needs to work on that Key 3. :-P

Did they add "Putting" to Key 3? (Just joking)

you're welcome  (love those Ping commercials)

Comon now, don't be haters ... I love to see a home made swing that works.      On the unusual occasion where he putts well, he's usually somewhere near the front ...

    • Donald Trump for president?
      I am actually starting to think that IF it has to be a Republican (shudder...), then Trump is probably the "best" choice out of the guys who stand a chance. I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but when you look at Ted Cruz, who makes Trump look like a renaissance man, and Rubio, who seemingly has nothing but farts in his head. I dunno, the GOP is kind of like an overloaded clown car at the moment. Ted Cruz still thinks that people choose to be gay FFS!  And if The Donald is the best choice out of the GOP, then I'm praying y'all vote Democrat. 
    • Putting Yips
      The putter I bought is a 48" Odyssey Dart. What I needed to do was find a way of keeping my right wrist out of the stroke. This putter is way too heavy for my wrist to do anything especially with my right arm fully extended. Time will tell by the number of putts that go in the hole.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Interestingly, I received this in an email from GolfNow yesterday.... You spoke and we're listening. That's why we're already hard at work fine-tuning the new GolfNow.com based on your feedback. Keep an eye out for enhancements on the way! I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't well aware of forum threads like this one too.
    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Every customer is different, some know exactly what they want and expect you to execute their vision.  Others want more consultation and input from the designers as to what others are doing or what trends are on the rise.  Another factor is maintenance, how much time is required to keep the site updated, can the business maintain the site on their own or must that be outsourced, etc. There are numerous reasons why a business would redesign their site, such as; The business has undergone some fundamental changes that they want reflected in a new website The cost of maintaining the current site is too high The provider of their data has changed the feeds or discontinued certain elements of the data. Users have complained about how the site works The site is outdated or dependent on outdated technology or servers. They want a site that is "responsive" meaning the same site works on desktop, tablet and smart phones. I've never done work for a business that said they want to make their site worse, less user friendly, less functional or more frustrating for their customers to use.  My guess is that given the popularity of sites like GolfNow, that some standards were created for how the data would be distributed and updated to the GolfNow like websites from the different courses to make it easier for them all to get the data (the same thing happened to the airline industry).  The change to the backend likely warranted the changing of the front end as well. In some cases compromises must be made.  I've redesigned sites that were written in HTML, PHP and jQuery which are not easy for end users to maintain and update themselves.  The client wanted a responsive site that they could maintain easily on their own.  I suggested we develop the new site using Joomla, Drupel or WordPress as those platforms provided them with everything they requested.  They ultimately ended up with a WordPress site that was responsive and very functional but because of the platform certain nuances of the old site were lost. Users initially complained but we worked out some issues and over time they appreciated the more frequent updates and ability to easily view the site on their iPads and cell phones.  Website redesign like life is full of compromises.
