Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 136
W HEN the PGA Tour’s players were asked a couple of years ago who they thought had the worst swing on tour, a staggering 32 per cent of them singled out one man: Tommy Gainey. Better known for playing with a glove on each hand, Gainey has manufactured his own unique style that he carried across from his years as a baseball player. We’ll let the video break down his bizarre technique, but to give the man credit, he’s not trying to hide or deny his swing’s unpleasantness. “I know my swing is ugly,” he once said. “I know it’s unorthodox, but I feel like I’m a good ball-striker, too.” OTG I GNORE every swing coach since the dawn of time, and you might come somewhere close to arriving at Daly’s mad method. The major winner and human punchline takes his backswing beyond ‘normal’, keeps accelerating through ‘ridiculous’ and only stops once he arrives at ‘insane’. At his rotation’s furthest point, the American would need only to lean forward slightly and he could touch his ball. That’s full 360-degree rotation, people, and while it might kill anyone else’s consistency, it’s helped Daly crush balls further than almost any other player in history.
