Old, old school, but thoroughly modern

Ouimet3 Looking for a way to kill some time at the office today? Check out the Society of Hickory Golfers. You'll find a collection of stop-action shots of Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen, Joyce Wethered and Francis Ouimet, among many others. Look at Ouimet swinging a brassie: he clears his hips so early it brings to mind Charlie Howell or Tiger Woods. Tremendous lag and, really, a very modern swing. I'm sure Hank Haney is working all sorts of magic with Tiger, and the swing has evolved over time, to be sure. But the swing, at its essence, is the swing. You can see for yourself.
