This Hi -speed video of Bradley was taken at the Open qualifier at Sunningdale on Monday 7th June, he is hitting his first tee shot of the afternoon round on the Old course, on his way to a 65, and it was a perfect shot , straight and long, in the middle of the fairway.
This is a really good angle to see his sequence of movement throughout his swing. Which as you can see is superb.
His posture is balanced and the angle of his spine and knee flex are perfect, he is balanced, athletic, he is grounded and ready to move into his swing.You need a strong base, and be well planted if you are going to generate power in your swing, and Bradley does this so well.
He starts his movement superbly, his chest, arms and club are perfectly synchronised as he move into his backswing, he is just coiling up his chest and his hips are responding to the turn. He has a great backswing wind up, is well balanced and has more weight on his right side .
Watch his transition closely, you can really see how his hips move first on the downswing, and his upper body is still coiled, he is not starting down with his arms or wrists, they are trailing behind.
The club is lagging behind, as his body moves left and starts to unwind, incredible energy is being stored by correct sequencing of his body . A major key in accuracy and power.
He has power, rhythm, great balance, athleticism, a superb golf swing, I wonder why he is not in contention more, it may be putting and short game that is just holding him back or maybe the mental side, but the swing does look very good. A very good model for you to see, very sound technique with great power.
