This is a wonderful swing designed more for ball control than power, but is obviously powerful enough to have already won a few times on the European Tour at a very young age. Manassero’s swing mechanics are excellent, and as the swing unfolds you can see that most of his positions and movements are right out of the Wayne D. list of preferences. He and his coach have expressed a desire to create more distance with all the clubs (especially the driver), and it is fairly clear why he is lacking a bit in that element of his game. The problem, as I see it, is that his right arm likes to fall into his side instead of driving more in front of his chest, which creates a wider release and has him maintaining his wrist angles though the impact area, all nice things for ball control. The problem is that he does the same thing with his driver, and since he is not a big guy he doesn’t possess the physical strength to create speed with the clubhead with his hands and forearms staying fairly neutral through impact. You can see in the video that his right wrist is bent all the way past impact with the driver, and there is no way that the club is going to move as fast that way as it would if the right hand had a more free release. His game is going to be accuracy and precision with all the clubs in his bag, and if he tried to change the thing up too much who knows what would happen? As it is now he is almost guaranteed to have a nice career and will be able to pick the courses that will better suit his game.
