Infamous 'Swing Thoughts' Golfer


Recommended Posts

I remember reading an article (possibly in the 90’s) about a very very talented golfer that could basically make the ball do anything he wanted. It seems he never really made it because he had WAY TOO MANY thoughts in his head before each swing to achieve his perfect swing. Does anyone know the guy’s name?

Thanks!

You might be thinking of Mac O'Grady, but the truth is… he wasn't nearly as talent as you said, or else he would've won a bunch on the PGA Tour.

The average PGA Tour player has 2-4 swing thoughts any given week when they're playing. I think the average in a recent Golf Digest or Golf Magazine poll was like 3.2 or something.

    • Hey, he's entitled to his opinion.  I've never objected to anyone saying they vote for Jack.  I only object when they start trying to justify their opinion with the kind of non-factual nonsense that is contained in the thousands of messages in this thread.  Or this latest nonsense of DiMarco somehow "gifting" the Masters to Tiger.  It's like saying Rocco 'gifted' the 2008 US Open to Tiger by driving it into a bunker on the 91st hole. But I respect his right to his opinion, even though I think it is unsupported by the facts.  Not everyone has dived into the topic as deeply as we have in this thread, and it is indisputable that the 18>15 criterion is still being peddled whole-heartedly by much of the golf media.  So there are a lot of people whoo still reflect that.
    • Now you’re just being smarmy and patronizing. I’m sad for you and your poor decision making. And sad for the people you may infect because you couldn’t do your duty as a citizen. You’ve never had any of the diseases you were already vaccinated for but chose to not participate in this one. The state of Wyoming has died and you couldn’t give a sh*t.
    • I’m glad that you’re comfortable with the decision you made.  
    • Well statistically that’s silly. But nostalgically …to each his own.
