Swing Analysis: Scott, McIlroy, and Stricker Hit the 100 Yd. Wedge

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

I thought this was a fairly rare occurrence, with 3 of the best players in the world playing together and hitting almost the same shot on the same hole, while the cameraman actually does a nice job of positioning himself for a down the line shot of each one. Stricker is a recognized maestro with the wedges, and here we see an example of his relatively wrist-less technique. Scott has beautiful lines and a slightly fuller action, while McIlroy seems to take a bigger cut at it and yet brings the ball in lower than the other two. All 3 shots end up within 3 or 4 feet of the hole, and the disparity in the techniques just goes to show you how great golf can be produced with endless variations in style.

Interesting analysis, these 3 guys have one thing in common and that is low hands at impact and through impact and that is a hallmark that all great ballstrikers have. Love the content you upload on this wonderful site! Keep up the good work! Btw who is your pick for the US OPEN?
