Westwood Wins In payoff at the St. Jude Classic

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.
