    He got to the TOUR with this swing and then someone said to him "your swing will never work on TOUR, you need to shorten it and be more under control." Its a shame.

    That's not really true. He did not get on Tour with that swing, and he made the decision to shorten it several years before he made it the pga tour. He did have a very good junior record with that swing, and he had that swing when he played on asu, he was the 4 man on the team when he was a sophomore and the won the ncaa team title. But he changed his swing after he left asu and before he made it on the buy.com. He shortened it with the help of Mike Owen, he felt the longer swing hurt his consistency so he shortened it. I read it in an article somewhere, I'll link it later. I remember in the article he said it felt like he was making half swings when he first started trying to change It and struggled for awhile but then got better and more consistent. I liked his swing a lot when he first out on tour and almost won the pebble beach event. This is a swing from him from one of his first couple years on tour he was going all out at it, but his backswing is shorter than his college days.

    Perez says "hold the Mayo" after round one at the Shriners...

    Thanks for the link, gator. Sounds like the Trackman Maestro is in the river. Pat intends to regroup with a "like-minded swing coach back home in Scottsdale" upon his return from Asia and Mexico...

    This just in...

    Pat Perez has announced his new swing coach will be Drew Steckel. Appears to work with Jason Gore, Danny Lee and Sang-Moon Bae. Meh.

    Congrats, indeed! TA3 is a party boy who coasted on his immense talent throughout his career (not unlike Pat Perez, interestingly enough). How talented is he? Well, Armour holds the PGA Tour 72 hole scoring record of 254, set in 2003 at the Valero Open, one of his two tour victories. Won by 7 shots. As they say, he has great genes.

    Turns out TA3's recent victory wasn't on the Champions tour, it was at an invitational Pro-Am hosted by Callaway, played at Pebble Beach. The field included, in addition to a sizable senior contingent, players from the regular PGA tour, European Tour, Web.com tour, the Canadian PGA tour and the LPGA. Some club pros and "other" players were also invited. This is Armour's third win at the $300,000 total prize money event.

    Perez just posted a swing on his facebook page. To me it looks a lot worse it looks like his pivot just quits and the club flips over post impact. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Jeff-

    The people who call you names are people who:

    1. know / research / experienced less than you.
    2. know that they are teaching crap.
    3. do not know 1 and 2.

    If golf instruction was as tightly regulated as say the pharmaceutical or finance industry, there would be far less instructors than we see today. Many instructors today help perpetuate the perception that golf instructors are no more than just athletically talented jocks.

    Most golfers never ever develop the ability to think critically.

    - Does the instructor have a vested interest in saying something?
    - Is the instructor consistent in his philosophy or does he change as the seasons of marketing?
    - Is the instructor really saying anything with all their words?
    - Is the instructor simple or does he makes things simpler to understand?

    Golfers should have as much sense in selecting an instructor as they do a meal. Would you accept a plate of vomit when you dine at iHop? Then why would you in golf?

    Ignorance comes by not critically examining the claims being touted; a result of the "if its published in the media and or said by a PGA qualified instructor, then it must be correct." heuristic. And no, it is not bliss.

    It can't be better said!

    I wonder what he will be working on now. Maybe he will try to go back to this. He might be hitting it up with bubba if he does.
