It’s Masters Weekend

Posted on Thursday 6 April 2006

Remember, kids, these men are professional athletes. Don’t try this at home.
Here’s what we know about John Daly from this picture:

  1. Regardless of the size of his belly he’s a remarkably strong and flexible man. Don’t believe me? Then you try to get into that position.
  2. His swing is almost comically long, but it’s right on plane – see how the clubface is parallel to his left forearm?
  3. One of the keys to his legendary distance his obvious: look how loosely he’s holding the club. You flat can’t hit it hard if you’re strangling the club. Daly’s grip is light but he’s clearly in control – at least of his club.
  4. He’s a Zippo man.
