He also was a Ryder Cup player in 1995, 1997, and 1999.
Maggert has a beautifully efficient golf swing. He says he’s largely self-taught and doesn’t rely on a swing coach; when he’s struggling, he says he takes video of his swing and gives himself a lesson. That’s called “owning your swing.”
I saw Maggert on TV during the 2012 St. Jude Classic, and I had forgotten what a wonderful move he makes through the golf ball. I could watch that swing all day long.
