I thought this was an intesting swing that ABS students and Lag may be interested in.
Durant has always sparked my interest as coming from a statistics background, I like to round up ‘ballstriking stats’ which include things like GIR, total driving, proximity to the hole and Durant has been in the top 10 in ballstriking year in and year out. I didn’t check his 2008 stats, yet…but I’m sure he had a good season as well. I think he was 2nd to last in putting, explaining his lack of success.
But, I see a golfer with a very flat downswing, plenty of right arm from p3 to p4 and swinging left quite a bit.
