    What a swing, it's like watching art.

    How long is that driver? Looks short to me.

    Nice swing.

    Normal driver I think, but a extra extra hard shaft.
    Kid is 6'3"
    22
    Hits it 360 in air on monitor, in a wheel barrel.
    Daly never had such an easy long swing, this kid is very rare, look at the tempo, not one wasted movement.

    If anything Daly was more fluid and silky smooth. This kid just explodes. My back and feet hurt watching him!

    I bet he hits it a mile, how's his control? Everybody on tour hits it a mile, the guys that stay on tour can control it.

    He was on a launch monitor at Golf Trader in SFL saturday, the whole shop stopped, out of the box first swing 350 carry, 10 swings all around 360 carry in a wheel barrel, he was JAW DROPPING, I've played a bunch with him this past week, since one of my companies may sponsor him on Euro Tour, his proximity to the hole is crazy, 12 to 18 feet almost every hole. 480 yard par 4's he's hitting sand wedges into the green. I've seen a ton of tour pros up close, no one compares to him IMO. This kid is the REAL DEAL. So yeah someone to watch. His putting is ok, but could be better, he's rolling 12 to 18 footers almost every hole, making lots of birdies and eagles, but he misses some, as expected past 10 feet, inside 10 feet, he's rock solid, in the hole or lipping out in the 7 to 10 foot range, as expected, inside 6 foot, he's rock solid. So he has it all, a little week on long putts, since he rarely has 40 footers. Short game chipping weak, since he rarely misses greens. I showed him a wrist break chip stroke like Player, he hit it twice and the third time he holed it. NATURAL. Plus he's a little 'freaky' since he's double jointed and almost 6'4". Absolute PLAYER.

    I'm impressed. He has some flexable wrists and is creating some crazy lag. When he gets to the top, he drops the shaft so low it looks like it's going to touch his shoulder. That's a serious power move. He is no doubt a big hitter.

    Crazy long
    I take him to new course I know
    He never played
    Give him line
    Say draw or fade
    He hits it on a die
    Plus his proximity to hole is crazy
    Crazy lenght
    Accuracy
    Dead on numbers every club
    This kid gonna win on tour and be competing for majors imo
    Crazy lenght n accuracy
    Crazy proximity to hole
    Dead on numbers
    I dont like his long putter
    Not too long
    But he doesnt anchor it
    Forearm lock he uses
    Rolls it good tho
    I offered to buy him scotty or bettanardi
    He says he likes this one
    He putts good
    But i hate long putters
