[Narrator] Tony Finau, a young man I've had the pleasure
00:03
of working with for a period of time a few years ago.
00:06
What a talent this young man has.
00:07
Man, does he hit it.
00:09
Big wind up, I really like the fact that his winding,
00:12
his upper body finishes the back swing not the arms.
00:14
Very compact look.
00:16
We can see such a simple look.
00:18
Unleashes his lower body,
00:21
gets a little up on his right toe but great lag
00:24
and man, does he unleash the power into,
00:26
he is so long, this kid.
00:28
I mean, he's really reigned it in the last few years
00:31
and he's starting to become a real player.
00:33
So, lets look at this angle with Tony Finau
00:36
who works with Boyd Summerhays out in Salt Lake City.
00:39
Great set up, I mean, I really love the positions that
00:41
he's got the club in at his wrist,
00:44
works it away, no frills,
00:45
nothing wasted there, simple top of the back from position.
00:48
Look at that face position.
00:50
See how that hangs?
00:50
That's a square position, folks.
00:52
Starts down, club just shallows out in a perfect position
00:56
to really deliver all the power to the ball.
00:58
You might say maybe a little bit flippy though the ball
01:00
but my goodness does he hit it
01:02
and a great future predict for this young man.
