An Attempt to Hit the White Ball Straight

Collin Morikawa’s Right Leg on the Golf Swing

Collin Morikawa has already won a major championship by the age of 23. Many would argue he would never have won that PGA Championship had there been fans, but that is a discussion for another time. I will make a bold prediction and say that Viktor Hovland will win more majors than Collin Morikawa.  Let’s look at Collin’s swing to explain why I think Viktor will be better.

Why Are College and MLB Baseball Players Good at Golf?

If you are like me and often tee it up without a foursome you may have bumped into former college baseball players or even former Major League Baseball (MLB) players that can absolutely stripe it down the middle in golf. Why is it the case that baseball players, especially pitchers, can hit the ball a mile and are generally good at golf? Here’s why:

Viktor Hovland Golf Swing Pump Drill

Mark it down, Viktor Hovland is going to be a star on the PGA Tour. I think he could win as many golf tournaments over his career as Dustin Johnson or Justin Thomas. He will forever be linked to Matthew Wolff (his Oklahoma State teammate) and Collin Morikawa because they entered the PGA Tour in the same year (2019). I think he will have a better career than those two because of that shoulder turn. He does a pump drill that can only be done with a huge shoulder turn. Here is how it works:

Why Do John Rahm, Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson Hit Shanks?

Every amateur in America that plays golf on a consistent basis has a huge smile on their face when they see a PGA Tour pro shank an iron shot. There are very few amateurs that haven’t come down with a case of the shanks so it is nice to see that even the best in the world can be bitten by the shank bug. The three PGA Tour Pros that are most likely to hit shanks today are Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson. So, why is this the case?

PGA Tour Pros That Tested Positive for COVID19

Since it is inevitable, I am going to document the PGA Tour Pros that test positive for COVID19, the date they tested positive and the tournament(s) they will have to sit out. The first tournament after the shelter in place was the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Dallas, Texas on June 11th-14th, 2020. The PGA Tour plans to use 1 million COVID19 test kits to finish the season. In April 2020, Commissioner of the PGA Tour, Jay Monahan said:

We need to have widespread, large-scale testing across our country. We’re going to need to be able to test players, caddies and other constituents before we return, but we need to do so in a way that’s not going to take away from the critical need that we’re currently facing, and we feel confident, based on the advice that we’re getting from medical experts, that we’ll be in that position.”

Back to golf.

Beginning at the Traveler’s Championship, PGA Tour Pros will wear WHOOP bands to detect Coronavirus.

Dan Hicks, NBC Golf Commentator, Winged Foot Member and Handicap

If you have been watching the coverage of the 2020 US Open at Winged Foot on NBC you have likely heard the expert analysis by NBC Commentator Dan Hicks. Why is he so knowledgeable about the famous A.W. Tillinghast golf course? Well, he is a member of Winged Foot and carries a 7.8 handicap at the course. Prior to the U.S. Open Hicks posted an 82 and a couple of 85’s on his home course.

Another nugget of information is Dan Hicks is married to ESPN sports journalist Hannah Storm.

Does Bryson DeChambeau Hinge His Wrists on His Driver Swing

Time and again we hear that Bryson DeChambeau’s new and improved driver swing (averaging over 330 yards) does not include a wrist hinge. This is simply not true. Here is why.

Matthew Wolff’s Left Foot and Backswing

Matthew Wolff’s golf swing is something to marvel at. While George Gankas gets a lot of credit for Wolff’s power, it is important to remember that young Matthew Wolff is an extremely talented player and does many things in his backswing that amateurs should never try. The thing most amateurs will notice is Matthew lifts up his left foot and goes back extremely outside and across the line. To learn more about generating power in your golf swing contact Patrick Kelley Golf.

So, why shouldn’t amateurs do this?

Why Are PGA Tour Pros Touching Their Right Elbow Before Putting?

During the 2020 FedEx Cup Playoff golf fans have noticed Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama and Joaquin Neimann are touching their right elbow when setting up for a putt. Why are they doing this?

The biggest problem with Pro level putting is the right elbow “pulls” back which causes the hands and arms to take over through impact. This is also true with the full swing with amateur golfers. Read more about pulling with the right elbow on the full swing here.
