That is a whole ****load of good stuff right there. Instant favorite!
Besides Brandt's no nonsense great swing, players can also learn a lot from his pace of play. Not only between shots but also when he gets over a shot. I see too many amateurs get lined up and stand over a shot for way too long. I can just imagine all the swing thoughts going on in their heads. Do your thinking behind the ball and they line up and swing. One swing thought during a swing is ok... 10 is not. Just my opinion.
I learned that John Merrick, winner of the Northern Trust (LA Open) is a home town boy here in Socal... And was the first LA resident to win the LA Open.
I also find it interesting that John Merrick is coached by Jamie Mulligan (who also coaches Peter Tomasulo, John Mallinger and Patrick Cantlay) here in Long Beach. I don't really know much about Jamie - and the swing pattern that he teaches, but from what I've read - he doesn't get very technical with his students. It is a lot of feel and rhythm golf. Not so much geometry based. Sounds more of the 'old school' instructional camp to me?
Here is a John Merrick swing that I could find (camera placement looks positioned too far left):
Couple swings I got of Streelman at the US Open. Yesterday it looked like he was making practice swings loading the shaft more shallow on the backswing. He does tend to get more steep (shaft angle) than most pros so I guess he wants it to load more shallow so doesn't have to re-route it as much on the downswing. Also ties into the video Beach put up in regards to getting the hands down, not getting the club too far inside the hands and controlling the overtaking rates. It's a good swing to watch, I like how he allows things to "gather" on the backswing and then just rips it.
