I have done Jordan’s swing before, but as he is kicking everyone’s butt nowadays I figured I’d take another look. I tried to imitate his positions in the mirror in my basement and found it impossible. Now, I’m not the most limber and mobile guy with all the problems I’ve had with my back, but I can still move around pretty good and most swings I can imitate fairly closely. With Spieth’s, trying to put myself where he is in the follow through showed me just how athletically difficult his swing is to accomplish. Of course, he doesn’t know how hard it is, he just does it. But if you try to keep the right wrist bent as long as he does and never straighten the left arm while rotating the face my guess is that you will find the pivot motion required to support this is beyond the capabilities of you and just about any other normal person. So, is this the reason he is so good? Not really. He hits the ball consistently extremely well but what sets him apart is his short game and putting. No one on Tour can come close to him in that regard right now. I think it’s a valid question to ask how long his body can hold up under the stress, but he is so young that it may not even matter until he has amassed a Tiger like career. We will certainly find out.
