Sure but The Old Man and The Sea wouldn't have been any better if Hemingway had typed it. That's what the swing tacticians seem to have a had time grasping.
Faldo was talking about Bubba yesterday morning and said something along the lines of "Bubba's swing is all over the place, but I asked him about it and he said all he cares about is the final results, how the golf ball gets to where it needs to go doesn't matter" and Faldo seemed dumbfounded by that concept.
I get that guys who are big swing tacticians focus on the swing, and there's nothing wrong with that. However it seems that some guys get so into the swing that they forget what the purpose of golf is to get the ball in the hole in the fewest strokes, not have the prettiest swing. I fully understand that a perfect textbook swings will typically produce good results, but it's not theonly way.
