Jordan Spieth leaves fans stunned with dramatic swing change at WGC Match Play

Published

on

The PGA Tour posted a video of Jordan Spieth’s swing yesterday with the caption “Notice any changes to Jordan Spieth’s swing and tempo?”, and there was a lot to take in.

The video generated a lot of discussion from commenters speculating on the potential swing change, or it may just be a case of a feel change for the three-time major champ.

Check it out below.

Fans were clearly surprised by the swing of Spieth in the video, with the three most liked comments from the post all being of similar tone:

  • Jackshort23 who said: “Yeah, I dunno about this one [crying laughing emoji]”
  • matt_gannon_ who said: “God that looks uncomfortable”
  • svnsxtional_ who said: “[Puke emoji]..Hope it’s effective”

While, the main Spieth Tracker account on Twitter appeared equally perplexed by the video, simply saying “Bruh”.

Spieth won his first match on Wednesday against Keegan Bradley, although he didn’t look in top form. It will be interesting to monitor his results in Thursday’s match against Justin Rose as he looks to advance.

What do you make of Spieth’s latest potential swing changeup, WRXers?

    As has been said, he’s practicing. No big deal. And Nick, how is this worthy of an article? Who is stunned? Get away from your computer and find some real news.

    Speith since dunking all those balls on the 12th at the masters he’s become another head case victim of chasing his swing… the harder he looks the further away it is… he’ll have weeks here and there where he’s in the hunt… but that old swing magic is lost in the ether.. been hating seeing it happen to him, he’s playing swing, not playing golf.

    Clearly, Jordan doesn’t feel like he owns his swing. But that’s rare. Even Woods went through several iterations over the years. (Remember the very strange preshot Tiger used when working with Foley?)

    Hogan might have been the closest to owning his swing.

    When golf “swing” gets out of sync the best way is to run it thru at slower tempos and gradually back to normal once fundamentals are in check

    All of these “stunned” fans clearly have no concept of what he’s doing with his swing. He’s on tour and they’re on their couch. This should have never even been wrote as an article.

    Clubhead speed is a result of exchange of arcs.
    Jordan is simply making a conscious exchange of arc in BS.

    Looks like the “bad move” he’s trying to get rid of is “sucking the hands inside on the backswing,” that he’s working on keeping them in front of his chest all the way back.

    The practice swing move is an exaggeration to remind himself of the ‘feel’ he’s pursuing.

    Jordan Speith is an example of enough is enough and when it is time to fire everyone and have a fresh start.

    He has been stuck on first gear for several years, that transmission is running out of fluid.

Augusta National chairman personally instructed players not to play LIV events, lawsuit claims

Published

on

More interesting information continues to surface from the 105-page lawsuit filed by the “LIV 11” on Wednesday.

According to the court documents, Augusta National Golf Club allegedly attempted to persuade golfers to not join LIV Golf.

“Augusta National, the promoter of The Masters, has taken multiple actions to indicate its alignment with the PGA Tour, thus seeding doubt among top professional golfers whether they would be banned from future Masters Tournaments,” the document states.

“As an initial matter, the links between the PGA Tour and Augusta National run deep. The actions by Augusta National indicate that the PGA Tour has used these channels to pressure Augusta National to do its bidding. For example, in February, 2022 Augusta National representatives threatened to disinvite players from The Masters if they joined LIV Golf.”

Greg Norman has consistently claimed that he’s attempted to reach out to Jay Monahan and ANGC Chairman Fred Ridley, but to no avail.

The lawsuit claims that the major championships has been a strong deterrent preventing players from joining LIV Golf.

“The threat of exlcusion from the Masters (and other majors) is a powerful weapon in the Tour’s arsenal to deter players from joining LIV Golf”.

While none of the majors have yet banned LIV players from playing in their events, they’ve spoken out in opposition to the breakaway golf league.

Adam Hadwin made the wrong comment over his wife’s outfit…and he’s now paying the price

Published

on

World ranked number 84, Adam Hadwin, is well known in golf circles for having a lighter approach to the game.

The Canadian has a Twitter bio that reads, “living the dream a day at a time!” and often posts about his family life and honest views on his current game.

However, despite having 30,000 fewer followers on the social media site, his wife Jessica is the one making more noise with some of her posts over the last few months.

We’ve had a clip of daughter Maddox’s reaction to her father’s hole-in-one at the Memorial, and the hilarious tweet regarding flat packed furniture, just two days after his best-ever finish in a major — tied-seventh at the U.S. Open.

However, she may well have trumped the lot with the revelation of her husband’s reaction to her new outfit:

Jessica is also unimpressed with the reaction of Team Adam, tweeting, “The best part (or worst?) was he said it in front of two male employees who proceeded to absolutely trip over themselves trying to run to his defense. Telling me “oh I don’t think he meant it like that…see what he meant was…he just wants to make sure you’re comfortable.”

It wasn’t long ago that fellow PGA Tour player Adam Schenk found that roasting your wife in public does not pay dividends, and you may think lessons were learned from that. It appears not.

Hadwin’s current status:

Good luck, Ad.

Jessica Korda in contention at Women’s Open despite having to wear borrowed clothes!

Published

on

Month after month, we read of golfers turning up at courses without their clubs. Almost every time it is down to their chosen airline ‘misplacing’ them, and leading to the players having to beg or borrow a set, or have their sponsor or manufacturer get them a spare set with urgency.

It isn’t often we read of players losing their clothes!

After yesterday’s first round 5-under 66, Jessica Korda revealed she had been wearing borrowed clothes all week whilst waiting for the return of her suitcase, stuck in transit, in Zurich. Whilst she travelled via Switzerland to Muirfield, some of her clothes did not.

On 31st July, Korda tweeted her plea to Swiss International Air Lines:

 

After the four-birdie, one-eagle round, the six-time LPGA Tour winner pleaded she was still seeking a reunion with her luggage.

“If anyone knows anyone at the Zurich airport that would like to put my suitcase on the one flight a day that they have coming into Edinburgh, I’d deeply appreciate it,” she said.

“I know where it is. I have an air tag on it. I can’t get anyone to actually go get it,” she explained.

The current Rolex #14 then credited her benefactors. “Monday I wore Megan Khang’s pants. Tuesday, I wore my sister’s pants and Wednesday I wore Alison Lee’s pants. And today I’m wearing FootJoy pants.”

Anything else missing besides the pants?

“Sponsor’s hats,” she said. “Wearing a Muirfield hat right now. A lot of my warm stuff. My hand warmers. My hands get really cold, so I wear gloves all the time. I’ve got a lot of heat patches for my lower back and my vitamins. Don’t have that.”

The episode may well have given her some impetus for the tournament.

“I gave up on it (the case) by Wednesday,” she said. “If it comes here, great, but if not, it is what it is. At this point,I’m playing a golf tournament.”

Despite all that, Korda is well positioned to have her best finish in 11 tries at the Women’s British Open, the best so far being a tied-fifth at Birkdale in 2014.

“You have to stay on it here at all times,” said Korda of the tough course.

“It’s links golf. I swear, every time we come to Scotland, it’s just like the same stuff. You’ve just got to be really prepared and take it for what it is.”
