Phil Mickelson has a chance to join golf royalty next week by winning the U.S. Open to complete the career Grand Slam. Mickelson would be just the sixth man to do so in the modern era, joining Sarazen, Player, Hogan Nicklaus and Woods.
Next week will be Mickelson’s third attempt at completing the Slam, but it will be his first attempt with this golf swing.
Lefty split with longtime swing coach Butch Harmon in November and started working with Andrew Getson. The two have been hard at work at thanks to CBS we got a great look at the changes Mickelson and Getson have made during the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.
As you will see in the video, Lefty’s new swing is a tad bit more upright and is almost perfectly on plane on both the back and through swing. Last year Mickelson was much more under the plane on the way back and then over it on the way to the ball. Will Mickelson’s new move allow him to win at one of the hardest golf courses in the world? We’ll have to wait and see, but his golf swing sure looks ready.
The difference between Phil Mickelson’s swing from 2015 to 2016?
