Does Geoff Ogilvy Play a Blue Golf Ball?

A BLUE GOLF BALL? Are you kidding me? That’s what I thought when I saw this image supplied by PUMA with a press release. (Geoff Ogilvy wears PUMA apparel and golf shoes.) So I asked about it.

Even though the ball appears to be a bright blue, it’s actually white, said the PUMA PR rep. The blue tint is just the way it caught the light in the image.

Of course. I figured it had to be something like that. Still, it’s weird.

Would anyone else like to highjack Geoff’s golf swing?

Look at his head position. Gorgeous. If you watch his full swing, you might notice that his lower body is relatively quiet. But he makes an awesome shoulder turn. Tall (6ʹ2ʺ) with an upright swing, Ogilvy generates a lot of speed and makes it look effortless. If you struggle with tempo, this guy is a great one to watch.

The recent winner of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, Geoff defends this coming week at the WGC-CA Championship at Doral Golf Resort & Spa in Miami, Florida. Some guy named Tiger has also entered the event.

I agree with you that Ogilvy has a fantastic tempo with his swing. It seems like it would be very hard to mess up with a swing like that. Ogilvy's match play record is incredible and hopefully next year at the match play championships we will get to see Ogilvy vs. Tiger.

Matt: His swing looks the same, whether he's hitting an 8-iron or driver.
