I'm sorry but this is insane...  Just watching his swing makes me want to run to the range and start hitting driver! :D

Great swing.  Its no better than a healthy Dustin Johnson though.  Rory's success all hinges on his putting though, which can be shaky at times.

I'm a fan of Lucas Glover's swing, when he's hitting it well that is.

I got 3 things to say:

1. BOOM

2. In the second video, the announcer comments on how Rory keeps his head still. But if you really watch it, he drops his head almost 10 inches. Kinda like Tiger. Doesn't seem to be such a big problem after all (has been stated before on here, but just wanted to point it out).

3. He really likes that shirt.

Ba-ba-ba-BOOM! Question: There's nothing to Johnny's comment about the right foot pointing up and down, right? Not only is the ball 50 yards away at that point, but if you really had turned your hips as far as possible wouldn't the foot be past the point of being vertical? And if it's not all the way to vertical... the ball is still well gone.

380 yards?!?! Psh. I hit that with my sand wedge...with one hand...while blindfolded.  What a sissy that Rory guy is.

Seriously though, will Rory's swing cause him to have the same kind of knee problems Tiger did?  He has to be putting an incredible amount of force on his knees when he rips the ball that far.

I just try not to listen to Johnny Miller...

Just listening to the audio of the first video is classic.  I laugh at the comments by Nick on the first video.... He sounds as if he just pitched a tent.... 'Ooohh Gary!  Look at this...Hahhhh... That is outrageous!'... Then later 'And it landed in the rough.' LOL

Insane.

I will say... You can see the trees moving pretty well at the beginning of the video.  So I'm sure he had wind assistance on that drive - but still... It was bombed.

I LOLed at that, too. Perception is reality.

Very obviously, Rory ought to get into the fashion business. His shirts would sell like hotcakes at the fair. Maybe he could hire Ian Poulter to peddle his wares or they could work co-operatively  Rory to demo and Ian to sell.

That would never work. Rory would be pushing all red, blue, and off-white shirts (or is that all Oakley makes?), and Ian would demand more pink and pastel colors.
