Bobby Jones on Short Irons (Video)

This old video lesson from Bobby Jones has a surprise in it, one that I've not heard anybody mention before. Can you tell what it is?

The video is full of all kinds of advice on playing short irons. (Depending on who you ask, the mashie-niblick is closest to what we call a 7-iron or even an 8-iron these days.) And you can learn a lot just by watching his rhythm.

But if you pay attention to his swings, especially near the end of the video where he is shown from several angles (in front, behind, above), you'll see that Bobby Jones chicken-winged his left arm just like Jordan Spieth. Surprised?

I guess there really isn't anything new under the sun.
