Davinci Code Swing Update

Marc Gardiol - October 18, 2016

When you say Lee, who are you talking about? Trevino??

    Birdie Gof - October 18, 2016

    Lee Comeaux. You can find him on YT. His swing technique is similar to what
    JH’s Davinci Code swing.

Birdie Gof - October 18, 2016

JH. Have you been on the golf course with this new swing technique? How are
you scoring?

    1atomicgolf - October 18, 2016

    I have played some batches of holes to get course orientation of the swing
    , I haven’t got time at present to play full games because of all the stuff
    I am involved with at the moment , the holes I have played have been a real
    eye opener… I normally play batches of 6 holes in a motorized buggy at a
    very quick pace and I am hitting virtually every fairway and most greens,
    when I miss a green its an easy proximity chip , no wides or surprises at
    all.
    Short shots of under a 100 meters are so much fun because I can take dead
    aim and know I wont miss in the wrong place, the driving is really
    impressive … the tighter the fairway the more fun it is… the same with
    tucked pins… I go straight at them.
    The playing I am doing is basically ‘test run ‘ feedback stuff and 6 holes
    at a time lets me keep my focus at a strong level , I haven’t had any
    negatives at all as yet… and frankly I dont believe I will if I keep
    building the process at the level of application I am .
    I am a very quick player normally in my setup and hit the ball process and
    that is what I am making sure I dont lose with the new process so the 6
    hole batches at a quick pace is keeping my general rate of execution the
    same as I have always applied..
    Its definitely the easiest and most confident I have ever felt on the golf
    course……knowing I wont hit a wide or a big miss is amazing.
    cheers JH

    Birdie Gof - October 18, 2016

    Thanks for the response JH. You really have me intrigued with this new
    swing. I’ve been using the Gravity swing with good results when I execute
    properly…I can really compress the ball but I’m inconsistent. A lot can
    go wrong with the long back swing, i.e. too much up and down with the
    head/body as well as the tendency to sway off the ball on the backswing. I
    think what excites me most is the shorter back swing. I do believe that I
    can still use the Gravity technique (hitting with body mass like you do
    with this swing) but can eliminate a lot of my inconsistency. It sure looks
    like there’s not a whole lot that could go wrong with that swing of yours.
    I’m headed out to the range to try it out as soon as I done with work.
    Again, thanks for all that you do for us JH! Cheers.

    1atomicgolf - October 18, 2016

    There is no doubt the compactness of the swing contributes to constancy of
    strike and accuracy… I just believe whenever the hands/arms get above the
    head in the back swing you have to much balancing and re routing to get
    back to the ball consistently on line.
    Make sure you do not try to apply the process before running through the
    motion on the practice tee, the mechanics are simple enough in theory but
    they certainly require a re programming of the brain and body feel
    adaptions.
    It took me 3 days to get comfortable and confident with the process… and
    that was 3 hours each day hitting balls… so dont be disappointed if you
    dont get good results on the course initially,,, its like anything else…
    you cant do something first up that you have never experienced before…
    you dont have a program for it until you build one.
    cheers JH

    Birdie Gof - October 19, 2016

    I had a good session at the range after work yesterday with my version of
    this swing. I did hit a few foul balls but all in all a lot of solid
    strikes. Definitely saw a lot more boring trajectory ball flight and as you
    said, you’ve got to keep that right elbow back. As soon as I let that elbow
    go forward I miss hit the shot…mostly thin. I also watched some of
    Comeaux’s videos out of curiosity and noticed that he has a much longer
    swing and uses a baseball type grip. Are you using your normal grip (Vardon
    as I recall)? I can’t wait for you to get all the details sorted out on
    this swing. I eagerly await each new video! I want to build this swing the
    right way with the right mechanics and feels. I plan on developing it on
    the range before I ever take it to the course. I had to do a lot of
    pre-shot stuff in order to feel comfortable enough to swing. I did find
    that the urge to swing hard was very strong. When I backed off, the shots
    were much more solid. Thanks again JH! Cheers

    1atomicgolf - October 19, 2016

    You are approaching the swing change correctly by learning it first on the
    practice range, the elbow back is ‘soooooo important…. I haven’t been
    using the split grip as Lee does yet… I may progress to it going
    forward… Lee’s swing is much longer than mine which is why he hits the
    ball so hard… I want to lengthen my swing a lot going forward.

    The secret is to really work on smoothing the downswing to a ‘flow’ rather
    than an ‘intention’…. which is what we see in Lee’s swing big time.
    cheers JH

hey0mcfly - October 18, 2016

That ball flight at 7.13 is amazing

    1atomicgolf - October 18, 2016

    The ball flight generally is really consistent in its shape and
    trajectory…. and the contact is very clean … no fats or thins.
    cheers JH.

Diz - October 18, 2016

well said JH!

    1atomicgolf - October 18, 2016

    Hey Diz,
    Good to hear from you…
    cheers JH

Martin Saar - October 18, 2016

Hey jh and many thanks for Davinci Code Swing. Its the best thing happened
to me and my golf, since I begun 25 years ago. All positive words and
reviews from you about the swing is true, I assure you. Today was my second
tournament with DCS and I was third among 40 participants. My score was 84
in a rainy and cold weather, just 8 Centigrades here in Sweden! My fellow
competitors were stunned! How do you get the energy and power, they asked!
My answer was simple, from jh in Sidney!

My DCS is not complete yet, and I am struggle to get with my elbow tight to
the body. and “behind”. But what a power I generate when I succeed.

One question: What have you dropped from “Fold and Hammer”? Do you still
have a little “stack and tilt” left, in DCS in the back swing?. It´s
impossible to observe when you perform.
I have Adams-Irons which are too closed and I have difficulties to avoid
unpleasant draws. What clubs do you recommend? What do you think about
Mizuno JPX 825? My hcp is 10,9 and I have been single hcp almost 20 years.
Once more, thanks for all your fine instructions and I do appreciate your
eminent pedagogical skills.
Looking forward to learn more of DCS, my future swing fore better golf and
if you and Lee C are planning to spread DCS around the world, which I think
you should do!
I´m your man in Sweden!!

All the best
Martin Saar

    1atomicgolf - October 18, 2016

    Hi Martin,
    Wow… that’s a great result so early for you in competition …. I haven’t
    taken the DCS into ‘real’ battle yet myself so you have done really well.
    The trail elbow thing is something that is such a big part of the swing’s
    structure that I have to come up with more readily understood visual
    explanations in my videos…. its such a counter intuitive action and it
    needs a lot of commitment to apply correctly… today’s video gives more
    insight so have a look at it.
    The ‘Fold and Hammer’ is an intrinsic component of the process
    absolutely…. but its the ‘early’ part of the swing… ‘ the trail elbow
    retention positioning is a ‘Later’ part of the swing… you have to ‘Fold’
    to be able to ‘Hammer’…
    I do try to incorporate an emphasis on the lead vertical axis as a Rotation
    point to eliminate any sliding laterally on the back swing… its not
    really a pivoting action as but more of a ‘shifting’ action … which is
    what Lee Comeaux does… he doesn’t think of ‘rotation’ at all… and the
    weight placement is definitely more on the lead side at address and during
    the shifting process.
    I think all of the Mizuno range of irons are good … I have hit the JPX
    825 and thought it was an excellent iron…. their latest ranges are even
    better again…. I think all of the brands of clubs these days are good, I
    have hit virtually all of them and I haven’t found any that I couldn’t
    really play with, my personal choice right now would be the new forged
    Mizuno JPX 900 ..either in the carbon steel or the Chrome Moly model.
    I would love to see Lee get the recognition he deserves for CMotion…. its
    such a unique swing … and he is such a unique person as well and his
    passion is something the World of Golf needs to be exposed to.
    cheers JH

Ken Ross - October 18, 2016

I played my first round with this swing yesterday. It added 20 strokes to
my game ! Glad it works for you JH.

    1atomicgolf - October 18, 2016

    HI ken ,
    The big problem with anything ‘new’ in a a golf swing is the temptation to
    take it to the course and try it without first giving it a good period of
    learning the new mechanics…. the golf course is not the ‘Learning
    area’…. the practice fairway is.
    This process is so different from anything you have tried before I am not
    surprised it didn’t work first up on the course…. I haven’t taken it into
    full battle myself yet …. you have to build up the new program so the
    brain and body are understanding of the changes…..
    I will have more in detail stuff that will help you going forward…. dont
    give it up… it is a great swing …. you just have to build the
    ‘Greatness’…
    cheers JH

Torbjørn T - October 19, 2016

thanks JH, i will follow you closely…

    1atomicgolf - October 19, 2016

    I hope its a good journey for you… I am very excited about the swing
    potential.
    cheers JH

Lea Pustetto - October 19, 2016

hi jh did you get the davici swing from ed pochobradsky because it looks
exactly like that video. wow what a hitter of the ball. i couldnt believe
what iwas hearing and seeing. he cracks that ball so easily. unbelievable.
where has he been. ?
i thought you mentioned a lee como or someone. couldnt hear it properly
during your video. would love any info. cheers

    Know nothing but Christ crucified - October 19, 2016

    Lea Pustetto Ed p just has videos off Lee Comeaux. That’s Lee

    Lea Pustetto - October 19, 2016

    Know nothing but Christ crucified hey thanks. much appreciated. dynamic

    1atomicgolf - October 19, 2016

    That’ is’ Lee Comeaux on that video …. there is a lot of Lee’s process in
    the Davinci Code swing and I am trying to add as much as I can with Lee’s
    help.
    cheers Jh

Alan Martins - October 19, 2016

as a right-hander who plays lefty this is impossible unless I try it
playing righty.

    1atomicgolf - October 19, 2016

    I never thought of someone like you… the process is very much ‘dominant’
    arm application…which is your lead arm not your trail arm…. there is
    always time to switch back to ‘right handed’ …think of the challenge…
    ..LOL..
    cheers JH

    Know nothing but Christ crucified - October 19, 2016

    Alan Martins hey my name is Joe. My son is the same but he’s a junior. I
    don’t play with his mechanics much but told him to try and feel his left
    pinky covering the ball. He has a tendency to hit a push or left for you
    guys. After telling him this warming up he hit almost all his shots a touch
    right. Some even drew a little. Power doesn’t come from muscle but hitting
    the sweet spot. Lees action will help find the sweet spot

Adam So - October 20, 2016

OMG! Thanks for sharing. I have super weak grip and makes the “fold and
snap” much more powerful.

    1atomicgolf - October 20, 2016

    Hi Adam,
    You are absolutely correct in determining that a neutral to weak grip makes
    the hinging of the wrist in the fold much easier, hope the process improves
    your Golf.
    cheers JH

edoardo barzano - October 20, 2016

Great Update.
Shot 2 birdies in the row today.

anything from 6 i to all wedges is fantastic, I find it a bit harder with
the long irons, although I hit a great 4 i today, to keep the elbow glued
to the rib cage. Especially with the driver it s kind of difficult to fire
the quadrant…
thx for the video.
Cheers

    1atomicgolf - October 20, 2016

    Hi Edoardo,
    Glad to hear you are having some success with the ‘Davinci Code’ swing…
    its great you can take it to the course so quickly… the Longer clubs just
    require more softness in the loading of the club head on the back swing and
    you have to resist trying to drive the shoulder quadrant to quickly from
    the outset of the down swing… you need to feel the shoulder quadrant is
    gradually accelerating itself into the ball … absolutely no flashing the
    quadrant initially from the top of the swing.. you must be almost
    ridiculously leisurely in the movement of the club to the ball by the
    shoulder quadrant pivot drive action.
    I will be doing something tomorrow on just that aspect because its so
    important.
    cheers JH

    edoardo barzano - October 21, 2016

    the other day I tried it playing 55 holes straight…
    yesterday was more experimenting, back at the course at 4 will def work on
    the longer irons and driver…

freddy - October 20, 2016

I tried this swing last night and got some amazing strikes with a 56 deg
wedge. I normally hit that club 65 yds. I was hitting it 85 yds with this
swing with less strain on my left upper back. One out of three shots were
ugly blades low and well past the target due to my ingrained habit of
getting both arms in front of the body too early relative to pivot.
A side note on Hogan’s illustration of the arms roped together…. That
picture screwed me up for years as I tried to get my arms straight and
together (at the elbows) as much as possible through the hitting area. That
may be a desirable feeling on the takeaway but is very problematic on the
downswing. This swing you are working on does the opposite in that you keep
the right elbow as far back and away from the left as possible as you come
down towards the ball.

    1atomicgolf - October 20, 2016

    Hi Freddy,
    That Hogan illustration is not what we want in the Davinci Code swing… we
    want connection on the trail arm to be ‘low’ on the hip line..not ‘high on
    the chest area…you know I have virtually no thoughts at all about my lead
    arm or what it is supposed to do in the swing… the trail arm positioning
    does everything to the rest of the body that needs to happen at address.
    cheers Jh

Nat McIntosh - October 20, 2016

Really like the hip connection concept very nice like that’s all there is
to it.I also found my pinkies kinda like lee expressed in this little
motion.like wringing a rag with them like hogan expessed.

    1atomicgolf - October 20, 2016

    The hip connection position is really super critical in its actual
    positioning and maintenance of position as a ‘thought/feeling’ coming into
    impact, again I will be doing more explanation on the specifics of that
    maybe today.
    cheers JH

Nat McIntosh - October 21, 2016

Hey jh.after my workout and hitting afew off the mat irealized I’m
concience of my rotation on the short controll shots . But if I go there
with the full shots I’m toast.just me my hands and the handlestand.I can
say that you are on a great track there.good stuff jh.cheers.

Nat McIntosh - October 21, 2016

Yes sir you are absoulutly correct all I had to do was slow the fold load
down to give the pivot a chance to react . Thanks and cheers.

Nat McIntosh - October 21, 2016

Or not react so quickly my rythym obviously went alittle
haywire.cheers.ahip thing.m

Chip Satterly - October 21, 2016

My God, I went over to see some of the videos on Lee Comeaux and was
totally amazed at how he compresses a golf ball.
The sound of the strike is like nothing I’ve heard before.
The power is effortless and his accuracy amazing.
There is tremendous emphasis on his right hand and shoulder.
I also see similarities to Moe’s “vertical drop and horizontal tug.”
One of Lee’s “C motion” friends also emphasizes the right hand grip, the
need to let the club “drop” first into the push/slap and the the focus on
hitting the ball on the outer, posterior quardant of the ball.
Cool stuf!!
Chip

    1atomicgolf - October 21, 2016

    Hi Chip,
    Yeah Lee is very impressive as a ball striker… his C Motion mechanics are
    amazing to watch… I dont understand them anywhere near enough yet to
    apply them to my swing stuff but hopefully going forward I will be able to
    give some insight into what he does…at least from my own understanding
    level… I haven’t seen anyone swing like Lee does… he is great to
    watch… will be better though when I can do some stuff on his swing
    mechanics and incorporate it into some of my swing mechanics thoughts.
    I have hit the outside quadrant of the ball my whole life with my small
    pitch shots… and some full shots as well in the last year … its a
    different ball flight and mental conditioning …. you should try it.
    cheers Jh

    Chip Satterly - October 21, 2016

    Thanks, JH.
    Trying to hit the relatively tiny “outside” of the top. right, rear
    quadrant of the ball seems like an incredible feat to me. How do YOU do it?
    Set up?
    Ball position?
    FOCUS on that spot in the swing?
    Can you WILL the club face to hit that section of the ball on contact??
    Amazing stuff!
    Chip

    1atomicgolf - October 21, 2016

    Hi Chip,
    Its not easy … I apply a ‘polishing’ type action with my trail hand
    through the ball at impact…. I wouldnt go there frankly unless you have a
    lot of time to spend perfecting the process…its so different from a
    normal club face application thought to the ball, and as I said I only use
    it on my pitch and chip shots.
    cheers JH

HXDTOWER - October 22, 2016

Sorry JH, I’m just not getting this Davinci Code swing. Going back to the
washing machine swing. To be honest, I can’t really see any difference in
your swing.

    1atomicgolf - October 24, 2016

    The Davionci Code swing mechanics are very different and its not easy to
    get the feeling of the process quickly…and frankly I have to give you
    guys better explanations to lock the process into your understanding… its
    not a swing you can really take to the course straight away because it is
    so counter intuitive to not go after the ball with the arms/hands moving
    independently of the pivot…just suspend your attempts for the Davinci
    code until I get better information available… I promise you when you do
    get it you will love it.
    cheers Jh

Cho co - October 24, 2016

you are an inspiration

    1atomicgolf - October 24, 2016

    Its all about not ever getting ‘Bored’ with the Golf Swing…. I just love
    thinking there is a ‘Secret’ out there that I might find one day…
    cheers JH
