Don’t get us wrong, Anthony Kim still has in our opinion, one of the
most compact and powerful swings on the PGA Tour. As is the case with
this shot, he actually just barely missed green, albeit a long ways to
the right and at the opposite end of the pin which was tucked in the
back left corner.

Golf instruction usually is loaded with tips on what you need to do to optimize your downswing and impact position. And while that's obviously important, I believe it's just as important to know how to make a proper backswing.

One of the great players on the PGA Tour was Chi Chi Rodriguez. In his heyday, Chi Chi could play and hit the ball as well and as far as almost anyone, even though he was smaller in size.

So much has been written about swing plane over the past few years, that students of mine often come to me very confused about what it is. Simply put, to make an “on-plane” swing, all you have to do is swing the club on the same angle it’s at when it rests on the ground.

Why the golf swing is called a “swing” is beyond me. It’s actually more of a turn than a swing, with the body's weight moving sequentially from one side to another via a rotary motion—not a swinging one.
If you started playing golf any time between ’82 and ’91, chances are
you cut your teeth on PING’s iconic EYE2 irons. EYE2 was the first
game-improvement design that all types of players could embrace,
including better amateurs and touring professionals. Because of this,
as well as its unique look and feel, the EYE2 became what’s generally
considered the best-selling iron of all time.

Arnold Palmer’s Legacy Course and Tom Watson’s Independence Course were already on site and had received critical acclaim, not to mention the honor of hosting the annual Ginn Open, one of only a handful of LPGA tournaments televised on network TV.
