    That one leg thing is quite interesting. LOL. I've never seen that style before. Leave it to Eddie to break the rules of golf as well as the guitar. Now I wish he would break the fucking smokes. Although I did see him use a Scotty Cameron on the green. Nice choice Ed. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Out.

    Scotty Cam is a very choice piece of putting equiptment indeed [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] Looks like a killer bee driver too. heh heh.

    Now, being a former golf professional myself, I just cant stand NOT taking this opportunity to critic the mans form [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Who knows, he (or somebody) may actually come across this and draw a thing or two from it. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    1. Pretty good posture overall (excluding the one leg thing....wtf?)

    2. Weak Grip. Needs to move his right thumb to left of center of the middle of the shaft at set up.

    3. His right elbow should be locked and left elbow collapsing after impact. In that pic, his right elbow is bent too much for that position of the swing.


    Lastly, there is absolutely no reason I can think of in the world why he would be golfing on one foot [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I'm sure it was a tip of some sort that he got having to do with hip rotation or weight shift. I dont know of ANY pro that would recommend that type of thing during a ROUND though. Sometimes you can prescribe that kind of thing for the range to drastically alter a really bad swing habit, but never on the course.....funny shit though, thats for sure.

    It would be cool if he read this. In real life, I'd hook his ass up with a lesson or 10. Well Ed, you know where to find me. lol

    As far as his "unique" golf style is concerned, I think Ed was borrowing heavily from the "Happy Gilmore" video he watched the night before, not realizing it was actually a comedy and not an instructional video [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    OK, his technique is questionable, but that has to be the coolest golf bag I've ever seen! I want one of those, and I don't even play golf!

    ..and who's the dude wearing the identical shirt that Ed's wearing in one of thos pics? We haven't seen any pictures of Alex for a long time, could it be? Naaaahhh, he's not wearing a neck brace [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Good to see Ed out havin' fun! Sound's like he better work on his "driving" skills though [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] (no pun intended)

    i think the stance could be attributed to him having on-going hip problems...at least i hope so anyway...crazy stuff.

    It's nice to see that Eddie is still alive and kickin! The one-legged golf stance is something I've never seen before. He's also lost a lot of weight (probably due to the cancer). Hopefully, these public appearances will be more frequent.

    Anyone else think about ten years ago if Ed did this stuff we'd all be laughing and saying, "That crazy @&$%"?

    Van Halen: Cancer is daily fight

    Rock guitarist Eddie Van Halen, at a celebrity golf tournament in L.A. on Saturday, said he is undergoing treatment every day for cancer. Van Halen, 46, who smoked cigarettes throughout the tournament, said he is feeling fine. His wife, actress Valerie Bertinelli, said earlier this month that a lesion was removed from Van Halen's tongue, according to Reuters.

    Was it Ed's RIGHT hip that got replaced? If so, that whole one-legged thing has got to be a by-product of the surgery.

    Anyone who plays golf knows that, during the backswing, you "load up" your weight on the right side, then explode through the ball with an unwinding of the hips and your weight shifting to your left side.

    I would assume that a hip replacement may impede the backswing a bit--therefore the stance.

    Then again, I may be reading too many golf mags. Seen, you're the local expert--am I off base here? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    No, your on track. You do load up on the right side, but its primarily on the inside of the right foot where you store the weight (bottom of the tornado shaped spring). If it were an inhibitor to that degree, he would be better off just going 3/4 or even less in his swing. You just cant get the balance neccessary for accuracy standing on one foot.....ever [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
