Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 136
O H MY, it’s hideous. Don’t look directly at it, kids, and maybe it’ll leave without hurting anyone. The analogies for Furyk’s dog-ugly technique have flowed thick and fast over the years. Commentator Gary McCord famously said that the 2003 US Open winner looked like he was trying to swing inside a phone booth, while David Feherty described it as “an octopus falling out of a tree”. Unperturbed, Furyk continues to be one of the most consistent players on the PGA Tour, week in and week out. (Unless he has the Sunday lead.) OTG G IVEN he’s a two-time Masters winner, there’s a decent argument in saying that it’s everyone else whose swings are shot to hell, not Watson’s. Whatever the eccentricities of the 36-year-old’s swing, there’s no denying its effectiveness. Consistently in the top few drivers for distance on the PGA Tour every single year, Watson has been clocked ripping balls at 312km/h. He achieves it with a self-taught wrist action and a violence that few players will ever be able to replicate.
