| 2009, Camilo, golf, Swing, Villegas
@93MrJustin I am not saying I am better than these guys obviously, but I work more on accuracy than distance. Some of those guys like Camilo Villegas are great players and hit the ball out of sight, but staying in play is what keeps scores down.
@watertonrivers thanks for info
Look at the swings of almost every other professional golfer nearly all of them have their right heel lifted
@remmy100 I agree, it isn’t nice. He’s more a hitter than a swinger I suspect. getting his power from right bicep, rather than centrifugal force. It’s a muscular hit-doesn’t seem to pure it. Still a top player of course, but by these guys standards, an ugly one. haha (and before anyone says, yes I know he can beat me!)
What an odd swing. Im actually more perplexed by this swing, than Jim Furyks.
@93MrJustin Here’s why alot of amateurs and pros are not consistent despite their strength. Watch his right foot lift before impact…that spells trouble getting back to square. Don’t believe it? Next time you go to the driving range, try to keep your right foot anchored through impact. If you practice that, you will hit it square much more often, assuming of course you swing is basically sound!!
dont get me wrong i am not doubting camilo’s ability as a player but his contact never seems to sound solid.
He is so friggin hot!!!!!!!!!!!
@missingsolution being health conscious will only delay the onset of injury for Camilo. That action is going to cause a breakdown somewhere. With Tiger it was his left knee, with AK his left thumb. I’m not saying he won’t have a great career, but he won’t be playing golf at 45 if he keeps swinging like that. Look at the vid of Hogan you have on your profile, look at the fluidity in that swing (the later clips, post 48)and he was half mashed to bits but was well able to hit a ball into his 70’s+.
@HabloIrlandes A good while, he’s extremely health conscious if you haven’t noticed..
I wonder how long his back will last with that action?
@idmunro thats camera’s artifacts
@PaperStarBusiness he holds it for a long time though but dont need that much when you just lash the hell outa the ball.
1:08 < whippy
”a lot” not- ”alot”
I do swing analysis almost every day at work…. I can tell you that this type of swing requires ALOT of strength, mobility and stability… That’s a reason why so many people can’t copy his swing… hence saying it’s a bad one… ridiculous comments I read here…
Of course: ” it’s not how, it’s how many ” Yes… and next question I ask: ” for how long before you get injured? ” That’s the point you reach when you say to someone who’s swing is ‘bad’. They’re on the tour and you’re not…
no wrist hinge or what?
@daeewoo he fuckin smashed the ball
this swing is spot on, shoulders square and he never takes his eyes off the ball
camilo is a beast man who cares what anyone else thinks
@MrMick73 yea because they use pesos as currency in northern Florida
@JACK195647 Shut the fuck up, are you on the PGA TOUR? Didn’t think so. It doesn’t matter how the swing looks as long as he hits it well.
