Swing Sequence: Retief Goosen

November 2010
Swing Sequence: Retief Goosen


I've been playing very consistent this year, which is quite nice, but I've just not been winning. I've had a lot of top 10s [eight in his first 14 PGA Tour events of 2010], but that doesn't mean anything to me. It's that No. 1 that counts. To win again, I'm working on staying on top of the ball. I broke my left arm skiing in 1999, and since then I've never been able to straighten it during the downswing. Because of the bend, I sometimes fall back and get the club under the ball and hit it poorly. So my goal is to get my weight over to my left side and stay on top of the ball. When I do that, I feel like I can really play my best golf.
