Well an a amazing two weeks in California & Tucson, great weather early then snow!
Was not expecting the white stuff to follow me to the desert, and I think Rory & Tiger are considering paying me to not follow them again!
Record so far been at two of their tournaments and in the first one they both missed the cut, and in the second one they both lost in the first round!
I know matchplay can be a bit flukey but even so that is some record, I could even believe it could be a bit of a jinx?
Anyway the golf course at Dove Mountain is superb but vicious, greens are so hard, huge slopes and very fast, the course is very long for example a 536 yd par 4!
I got up close to all the players and got some great slow motion videos, including a last practice session with Rory before his first match on Wednesday.
He was hitting great shots on the range , drivers very long, he said he was hitting the new driver better than ever.
He gave an impromptu interview with Golf Channels Kelly Tilghman and she was asking Rory about his clubs, his new house, his girlfriend, and even wanted his phone number!
He is very popular in the U.S. large crowds following the world no1, he was looking composed and in control considering everything that has happened this year, and I believe the new clubs are not an issue at all.
I believe Rory is simply not swinging as well and of course their is huge expectation, which adds more pressure and that will not go till he wins with his new equipment.
I have put his swing on my Youtube channel and give my views and make a comparison with Justin Rose & Hunter Mahan who both swing the club on a consistent swing plane.
Take a look and see what you think and let me know.
