At first glance this swing may look a little unwieldy, especially with the exaggeratedly open stance, but upon closer inspection I think you will agree with me that it is an awesome move. Wilcox’s stats are amazing: #1 all around, 3rd in ball striking, 5th in driving, 1st in sand saves, and 6th in scoring average. He exhibits almost every technique element that I prefer, from the erect, weight on the balls of the feet stance, the deepening of both hips in the backswing, the wide, deep and high right arm in the backswing, the opening of the face going back which helps stop the right arm and points the club to the left at the top, the hard catch of the club in transition with the shaft flattening, and the pure low -sidearm motion in the forward swing. You won’t see many players as open with the entire body at impact, nor will you see anyone this side of Sergio and Vijay come into impact with the hands lower and closer to the body. At 6’1 and 150 pounds Wilcox produces tremendous speed with his whip-like action, more reminiscent of Hogan than just about anyone I have seen. It will be fun to keep an eye on him to see if he can keep hitting it this good and maybe get his putter going like he did at the Barbasol tournament a couple weeks ago where he finished 2nd.
