Swing Sequence: Tim Clark

FUNCTION FOLLOWS FEEL

This might sound strange--coming in a magazine filled with golf instruction--but I don't think about swing mechanics at all. I don't have a regular teacher, and I've never seen my swing broken down the way it is on the following pages. To be honest, it's not something I think about. When I get to a tournament and head out to the range, I'm concentrating on one thing: hitting the ball in the middle of the clubface. If I struggle with my swing, I don't hit more balls. I stop, go back to my room and just do something else. I come back the next day, make sure my setup is square, and try again. That's as technical as I get.
