Presented with the opportunity to watch Robert Garrigus’ golf swing in slow motion it occurred to me that it would be interesting to compare his powerful action to that of a baseball player, especially a power hitter.
There is a certain aesthetic pleasure in watching a tightly connected, “flat” looking swing. The movement appears centered and simple. The energy seems to come 100 % from rotation, and there is little or no rangy or loose movement.
Now, with the advent of high speed photography used by the networks on their PGA Tour telecasts, I have compiled some really cool shots of the club striking the ball.
