Cristie Kerr No.1 on the LPGA Tour

Monday, June 28th, 2010

Cristie Kerr moved to the top of the LPGA Tour rankings with a demolition of the field at the LPGA Championship by 12 shots. That’s right 12 shots an incredible accomplishment.   Below is Cristie working hard on her game?  There are a couple of interesting movements in her swing with the club getting across the line at the top of the backswing and a limited wrist hinge.  But one thing for sure she was consistent all through the week and a 6 under pay final round was certainly a round she will remember for the rest of her life.

Graham Mcdowell Wins US Open Golf 2010

Monday, June 21st, 2010

So may be the shut club face at the top of Dustin Johnson’s backswing was too unmanageable in the last round at the US Open at Pebble Beach.  Congratulations to Grahame McDowell on his one shot victory.  He managed his round perfectly to make sure he ended the 40 year drought for European Winners of the US Open let’s hope it’s not another 40 years to the next victor.
We take a quick look at Grahame’s swing from down the line showing how he manages to deliver the club perfectly on swing plane in the downswing even though he is slightly out of position at the top of his swing.

Dustin Johnson leading into the final round of US Open

I have to admit Dustin Johnson certainly gets results.  It’s interesting in the below analysis of his own swing he mentions nothing about the bowed left wrist and shut face at the top of his backswing as well as the untra late release to compensate for that closed face.  It’s rare that you see any golfer with a right elbow below the left arm in his downswing.  Just goes to show though in his comments how he views a good club shaft plane in the downswing and for that matter the backswing something every golfer should strive for.

Westwood Wins In payoff at the St. Jude Classic

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

An amazing end to the St.Jude Classic this week on the PGA tour, Robert Garrigus only needed a double bogey to win and lipped out for a treble. I must admit he gave a good post interview to David Feherty after the disastrous end to his round. Then the drama continued into the playoff where no one seems to want to win. Finally Lee Westwood went onto win in extra time.

Robert Karlsson, regaining his form at the St. Jude Classic this week though, interestingly his longest holed put was 16 feet in the 72 holes, he must have struck the ball well to get round on -10 to get into a playoff with Lee Westwood.

He has returned to his coach Mark Blackburn from Alabama starting at Dubai this year and it seems to have paid dividends. After a great season in 2008 finishing high up in all 4 majors and topping the European Tour Order of Merit, 2009 however was not the best of years primarily through illness. Mark originally from London has setup a number of Golf Academies in the US and not only coaches Robert Karlsson but Heath Slocum and a number of talented NCAA students.

Let’s take a look at Robert Karlsson’s swing in High speed.
