  1. I checked the date of the video, it's 2018, can't tell when video was shot though. It's published by Callaway, so assuming video is pretty recent. Mickelson is a great player, but might be confusing people.
  2. Posted this on IG yesterday, just something I thought would be interesting to throw out there. I could be completely off but when you look at players that have had long, relatively injury-free careers they tend to have more "freedom" with their lower body (Phil, Jack, Sam Snead, Vijay). By freedom I mean allowing the hips to turn, trail knee losing some flex and the lead knee moving inward. I've also felt Tiger's swing, especially in recent years, is too restrictive and hurts his downswing sequencing. Someone commented that it wasn't a good comparison because the swing of Tiger's isn't a driver swing, it actually is but I'll also share this driver swing from last year in Phoenix. Here are some of the comments and my responses:
  3. Not Phil's best IMO. Doesn't make much sense he would be criticizing the "modern" swing when he was working with Butch for years on not changing the flex in his rear leg on the backswing, shortening the arm swing, etc. As we all know he wasn't a great student because his swing continued to go past parallel and he always lost some flex in his trail knee (this is a good thing). A lot of the top guys, Rory, Spieth, DJ, Bubba, Rickie, don't really have modern "restrictive" swings. I just categorize this as gamesmanship or Phil trying to prove to himself that he has some advantage in the twilight of his career. http://www.golfdigest.com/story/phil-mickelson-says-you-can-take-that-modern-swing-and-wrap-it-in-a-back-brace?mbid=social_facebook
  4. Simple tip on Par 5's, get as close as you can and forget the incorrect advice of laying up to a "comfortable" yardage. From the book Lowest Score Wins, Obviously I'm not saying to "go for it" blindly on every shot, but if you have a somewhat open shot you're only hurting yourself by laying up to 100 yards when you could be 30 yards short of the green. Even if you hit your fairway wood in the rough, you're better off from 30 yards than 100 yards in the fairway. With the shorter shot you have a much better chance of hitting the ball closer to the hole. Most of you aren't playing deep, thick U.S. Open rough If there's OB, a hazard, a tree short of the green, then lay up. Even without the great short game, Phil utilizes the best strategy, something every golfer (who wants to shoot lower scores) should do. Also, can you guess which player Bones first caddied for?
