Video of Jordan Spieth's swing, face on, driver @ Torrey Pines

Kind of tired of the commentators bigging him up so much, but the kid is a phenom. Love how little his knees and legs move during the backswing while still getting all that shoulder rotation. Still can't figure out how to do that...might be time to sign up for a Yoga class or two.

Figure a way out? I know I can't. I gave up. No way my body will allow it, not all the way back like he does. And I'm fine with that.

Ahh..to be young again...:-D

 

 

I agree with BEN, they tend to overdo things with regards to players sometimes, still the kid's got skillz yo.

He has the big key moves in his swing that work; all pros and top amateurs do and they (more or less) do it consistently but JS has what I'd call a home-made swing ie: no coach would purposely teach the bent left arm and the 'lift' that JS makes to get the club shaft to the horizontal but he has great lag on the downswing and the hip turn. I just get a feeling he'll encounter trouble in maintaining this consistency but there's no doubt he's taken the tour by storm.
