Remember this swing aced a hole, so careful with the comments...

Here is Dave hitting a 9 iron to about 10ft on the 2nd, a downhill 180 yard par 3 with a gale up our backsides.

Emmm ... well it's not a thing of beauty - but neither is Arnie or Jack :D, I think the overswing actually helps me get me junk thru the ball Irish, thanks for the clip

I think all we're missing is some peanut butter, 'cause there's a lot of jelly in that swing. Do you ever hit your left knee with the club head on your backswing Mr. Daly? :)

I admire a man that can hole out from the tee with that. really. ;)

Straighten that left arm, widen the arc and I'll bet you gain 20 yards a club, too.

I'm gonna use that word snigger in the office today. Hope I can use it in the right context. :)

...and what bd said about the left arm.

I finally got home and was able to download and play the video...

First, just for me to verify. Are we looking at the swing where the shot went in the hole? Is this the swing where he Aced it??

Next, I like his swing...it is Dalyesque and we all know that Daly can play....

Who cares if he is past parallel and doesn't keep the left arm perfectly straight??

I see a lot of swingspeed there....

No Bravo

He only put this tee shot to about 10 ft. from 180 yards. Come to think of it Dave hit a lot of great tee shots that day on the par 3s.

I didn't capture the swing that aced it.

Well - I like his swing and it works for him. What kind of camera do you have? Was this Dave's new camera??

Is Dave Ireland really Seve?

Here's Dave going for the par 5 7th with his second, from about 215 yards. He has the old Sonartec md out and is giving it "the message".

Having watched this again there is more than a certain similarity to Seve. The lean, the frustration of leaving one off to the right. The gesticulation. There must be some Spanish blood running through those veins, no?

What's everyone else think? Should it be Dave Spain?
