Swing Analysis: Jordan Spieth and Jason Day on the Greens

This is a quick look at the putting strokes of the two best players in the world this year, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day. The putting stroke, like the golf swing, is an individual thing, and here we see wide disparities in the technique and rhythm that each player employs. The common thing amongst the two is the fact that both make a boatload of putts, enough to complement their excellent ball striking to win them close to 20 million dollars in 2015. It would be foolish to try to determine which technique was “better”, so we will simply make our observations and try to perhaps learn something from each.

    In one of your earlier videos you noted how Day was moving off the ball a significant amount before he took the putter back; citing this as a reason for his putting woes, at the time.

    From what I’ve seen, he seems to have sorted it and is putting much better (clearly). Maybe he saw your video? Either way, I can only imagine someone – at some point during his poor spell – told him his stroke was “perfect” and his mind was at fault.

    So, just the most sophisticated piece of machinery in the known universe to fix then. Cheers for that Mr “I got nothin”.

    It always baffles me how “changing the way you think” is considered easier than changing basic fundamentals. Particularly when dealing with a male ego.

    Although I’m not denying a positive mental attitude is desirable, moving your head back, much more than an inch, is likely going to cause a toe strike, resulting in a miss short and right, or, a compensatory move. No amount of rhetoric from Dr Bob Rotisserie can change the maths.
