In my pursuit to find anything unorthodox and interesting in the golf world, I’ve come across something that normally we do not write about – swing/golf lessons.
GDIB’s approach to game improvement takes a different angle than the keep your back straight-shoulder facing the target- knees slightly bent- BLAH BLAH BLAH generic formula to play better golf. One of the Dude’s (as he refers to himself) theories is to hit the ball the way you want to hit it. In one of his episodes he talks about Ben Hogan and his swing. He said Ben Hogan swung the way he did out of motivation…he had to make a living. Hogan didn’t work on his swing for hours and hours. He hit balls for hours and hours with his swing because that’s what worked for him.
Very interesting, just get out there and play. I can dig that! If Ben Hogan supposedly had the perfect swing than how does someone like Jim Furyk with his funky swing play on the tour and win? Because Furyk’s swing works for Jim Furyk. He hits the ball the way he wants to hit it. The more I think about it the more I like the concept. A simple no BS way to attack the game.
When you get a chance, head on over to Golf Dude In The Basement and check him out for yourself. As always, hit’em long…yell FORE!
