Last week Thomas Pieters made even more of a name for himself by thrashing out thunderous long drives and putting magnificently, while playing with the likes of Rory and the long hitting Americans during his Ryder Cup matches. This week in Europe competing in the Dunhill Cup, Pieters hit a drive onto the green on a 407 yard par 4 hole .
See his swing here in slow motion with comments from Kelvin Miyahira.
It is becoming more obvious that several of today’s more athletic top golfers are using a very similar swing technique. It does not involve using a lot of lateral body movement on the downswing.
