Congratulations on your first win Jason! Check Jason’s swing here:
What can we learn from Jason’s swing?
Jason has been close to winning quite a few times now. He plays golf like a robot and hits fairways and greens. His golf swing is well suited for difficult golf courses, and he has a perfect game for the US Open coming up. Most importantly, his swing matches his personality. I was watching Arnold Palmer discuss players personal styles and how he was advising his grandson Sam Saunders to develop his own personality, and it made sense to me that great golfers have swings that match their personalities.
Phil Mickelson has an aggressive swing and likes to play that way. Payne Stewart had a smooth and stylish swing and a personality to match. Jason Dufner probably has the most laid back personality on the tour. He is not in a hurry to take the club back and he takes as many as 8 or 9 waggles before doing so. His swing is very simple and on plane. He is in no hurry to pick his tee up out of the ground on the follow through as he pauses and holds it, unlike the club twirls and leans of other golfers. If your swing matches your personality, you will be more comfortable in your skin when the pressure is on.
My only critique would be in how he putts, his knees are moving all over the place, if he would just putt with steady knees his putting would also match his personality.
