Swing Sequence: Rickie Fowler

NOTHING TOO COMPLICATED

If you asked me to discuss the mechanics of my swing, I'm afraid it would be a short conversation. I'm a feel player. My main focus is on making solid contact. I know my swing and my tendencies, and if I get into a spell of hitting the ball a little thin with my driver, or off the toe, or with the clubface a shade open or closed, I can make a small adjustment or two to get back on track. I make the corrections by instinct. Learn to recognize the feel of different off-center hits and an open or closed face at impact. They'll give you clues about your swing and help you start fixing mistakes on your own. It's a fun way to play and improve. -- Rickie Fowler -------------------
