Swing Sequence: Angel Cabrera

WELL-AGED WONDER

As a young man I was extremely flexible, and my swing was very long -- perhaps too long. I could drive the ball great distances, but sometimes I would turn my shoulders and hips too far, and my accuracy would suffer. As I got older, I lost some of that flexibility, but none of my strength. My swing became shorter and -- strangely -- much better. My only goal is to have the clubface square at impact. I won the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters in my late 30s, largely because of my confident driving. Today, at 40, I believe there are more victories in my future, especially in the major championships. You should welcome getting older in golf. With greater knowledge of your swing, you too can keep improving.
