Re: Golfers of RedsZone (aka War Stories from the Rough)
Woodland is a freak of nature. Simple as that. He's like Usain Bolt. You just can't teach that much speed. You either have it or you don't.
A couple of things to look for are his hip rotation and wrist action. At impact, his hips are facing the target. Pretty tough to do. Along with that, his wrists are hinged well past 90 degrees which creates this super sling-slot whipping action through impact. It's pretty much impossible to copy this. Only a handle of people in the world can do this effectively.
If there was a sport to emulate to create more power, it would be jai alai. If you don't know what that is, look it up on youtube and try emulate that action. It creates a lot more power for golf.
