With only seeing his swing and not the result....yes....its sucks.

Again... what about this sucks?


Nothing about his swing or game sucks...he just won a PGA Tour tournament!  His swing has some different characteristics from other tour swings.  His grip, slightly shut face on the backswing, and the way his lead arm is away from his chest on the downswing (some think he looks a bit OTT) are different than others.  As noted above, his follow through comes to an abrupt finish.  Like Tommy Two Gloves, it looks different.  

Hope he can keep contending this year....I always like an underdog.

o.k then ...I stand corrected.......next time don't use "static" pictures that don't paint the whole picture.   There are ~ 200 other swings that aesthetically are better (in motion - which is usually what we see on T.V (without the BIzhub konica minolta swing vision camera.....LOL).   The argument is not about the results (I made that clear)....I admit , saying his swing "sucks" is a bit harsh (and at the same time taken out of context).   Next time I will illustrate my point better :)   Please accept my apology Mrs. Potter......

Discrimination against southpaws at its finest. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us. :)

I agree - if you flipped his swing around and showed it RH, it likely wouldn't look "bad" to most people.
