Brandel Chamblee has stirred a
debate about the golf swing thissummer with his new book, “ The Anatomy of Greatness: ” Lessons from the Best Swings in History .
Chamblee joined the PGA Tour
in 1985 and enjoyed an 18-year
career playing golf for money. He
entered 370 events, earned over
$4 million and had one career win
at the 1998 Greater Vancouver
Open over Payne Stewart.
He is currently a golf analyst for the
Golf Channel and never shies away
from a controversy or argument.
He appreciates the history of
golf and helps put modern golf
issues in perspective with past
performances and players.
Through his years of watching
the modern golf swing, he has
become convinced that the fixed
lower body and severe rotation of
the shoulders creates too much
tension during the swing. This
violent torso turn promotes injury.
Example, Tiger Woods’ series of
leg, knee and back issues.
Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Sam
Snead, even Jack Nicklaus lifted
their left heel in the back swing,
had longer more flowing swings
and played most of their careers
Chamblee read hundreds of
books, watched hours of video
and analyzed thousands of
photos doing research for this
book. If you want to improve
your swing and learn from the
greats, read Brandel Chamblee’s
The Anatomy of Greatness
while you are lying on the beach.
