How He Hit That: Colin Montgomerie's major precision

Colin Montgomerie had to hear plenty of "best player to never win a major talk" during his years on the regular tours.

That's over now, literally and figuratively.

To get more of Monty's precision in your game, try to copy his left arm position down through impact, says Jacobs. "As he comes down to the ball, his left arm is hanging straight down. Most people have their arm raised up, either because the club is coming from the outside or they're trying to pull it around from the inside," says Jacobs. "That straight down position when the club is about waist high in the downswing is a great checkpoint position for anybody. When Monty is there, he basically can't miss."
