Prior to The Masters, five-time major winner Phil Mickelson played a practice round at Augusta with another five-time winner, Tom Brady, who in February won his fifth (yes, FIFTH!) Super Bowl Championship.
At the Dean & DeLuca Invitational, which Phil is playing for the first time since 2010, Mickelson elaborated on a conversation the two had, saying that Brady offered advice to help him with his club speed.
- The Concept: Tom Brady informed Phil Mickelson of a golf training concept referred to as “overload, underload”, which Brady applied to football, using it to increase arm velocity.
- Refined: Mickelson and his coach have been doing it for years, but according to Phil, Brady has refined the technique.
- Increases Speed: When applied to golf, the overload, underload technique incorporates the use of different weighted clubs to increase club speed.
- Solid Season: The 46-year-old Mickelson has three top-10s in 12 events this season. He finished T22 at The Masters.
