    Despite Bubba's falter in the last round yesterday at the Memorial, his golf swing is eerily reminiscent of the great Jack Nicklaus's peerless swing. Compare this action to the modern swing methodology. Which swing wins more majors?!

    I would have to see how well it lasts over time. Bubba's  swing changes shot to shot because he has great feel and hand action and enough coordination to pull it all together.

    Love him or not he is exciting to watch.

    The idea is that Bubba's swing is pretty much just like Jack's. Looking at similar spots in their swings, Bubba and Jack swing's  have quite a bit in common. Whether Bubba has the same mental attitude as Jack is another variable to consider. And quickly, I would say that Jack had a better outlook and far greater mental fortitude. But their full swing actions are very similar and, I think,  completely   different from the modern methodology.
