So is this a cross handed, lefty swing with a righty club??  

Obviously, the people approving this ad are NOT golfers......makes my brain hurt

This could be one of the worst golf merch ads I've ever seen. It's the Madison Ave. version of Charles Barkely's swing.

I think he just swung and missed and is staring down at the ball still sitting on the ground next to him.

also his grip is still cross handed if it's flipped, which it's not.  what a bad photo

i guess it could be a follow through swing where he's still "keeping his head down" but then is the club backwards?

Would have been so much more effective had the model improved on his technique with Blue Steel, Magnum, Le Tigre, or Ferrari. So amateur...

too much reverse tilt,  angle at P6 is not matching with P4,  the Fluxcapacitor, is not the correct 121jiggawats for the tesla coil at impact, so he would not be able to generate the proper 144mph swing speed.  also the Launch monitor is set for 10,000ft elevation 20mph tail wind....and a smash factor of 1.6,  did I forget to mention the petroleum jelly on the driver face......

Very possibly the art director's fault. Telling the right handed model to swing left handed and bend his arm to fit in the layout.


I'm sure "it only spoke to them" at the photo shoot.
