WIDE START To set up his long swing, Bubba gets huge extension and stays far behind the ball. Surprisingly, he has little wrist cock up to this point in the backswing.
BIG TURN Despite his enormous, Dalyesque rotation--his shoulders are turned 110 degrees-- Watson's left leg is firmly braced and dead straight.
POWER PLUS Like Sergio, Watson creates extra oomph by increasing lag (i.e., wrist cock) during the downswing, which is like a buggy-whip effect.
It's freakish to swing at warp speed and still have the shaft and right arm
straight at impact, with the club face square to the target
HANGING BACK With all the speed Watson generates during the swing, momentum forces him to his toes and he remains up on them even after impact.
AUTOPILOT A life
without lessons has been a boon, giving Watson an uncluttered mind so he can
swing freely and smoothly from start to finish.
