Good stuff JH. It looks like you can preset the step motion a little by
setting up with a slightly toed in right foot and slightly flared left. I
think it might help to have the whole body slightly canted open at
Leave a reply:
+Jackson Slagle You have to be careful not to ‘open’ up the ‘right’ side of
the body..in order to drive the right foot/leg it really has to come from
‘behind’ the left side of the body otherwise the right side gets ‘out’ to
early and can cause a coming ‘over/around’ action of the upper right side
of the body.
You need to drive from ‘behind’ and ‘out’ to the ball/target
line…actually you will find the ‘drive/rotation’ will happen more
effectively from a closed right side positioning at address, I think that
happens because we have further to travel with the right leg/foot if it is
coming from further back…just seems to allow a more aggressive move from
a closed address position. regards Jh
Hi Jackson, my feet positions are purely relative to my body components
flexibility factors, I let my range of motion dictate how my feet are
positioned, as well I mostly favor a closed shoulder line setup which I try
to keep closed coming down , hence I need lots of left hip lead and
rotation which requires the left foot flaring.
JH, I’m so glad you are reviewing Mike Austin’s swing, giving it the
credit that it deserves. It is, without doubt the least stressful swing
on the body.
+dekkker You are correct in saying it is not stressful on the body…
that’s why Mike was able to hit balls so powerfully until he was 80ish…
frankly if he hadnt had the stroke I think he would still be hitting the
ball today with power and fluidity, I think his swing was the best in terms
of natural flow/power and balance. JH
how far do u hit some of your clubs? pw,5i and driver???
Because I am accuracy orientated I never try to extend myself with any
clubs…general distances for me are.. all distances are carry… PW…110
meters full shot..5 iron 165 meters..Driver 225 meters….my distances are
about that of an LPGA player which at my age [74 is ok) I guess….my
practice area is downhill so you may hear slightly longer distances from
the clubs I hit on the vids, I can ramp up another 10 meters when I want to
but accuracy invariably suffers.
+D Martins I think for most club players they should have a stronger grip,
and I say that because the club player invariably doesn’t get the the lower
body leading enough in the downswing into impact which normally puts a fair
bit of release pressure on the hands/arms which squares up the club face so
a strong grip will have some inbuilt normal release factor in it .
For a better player to have a strong grip they really have to have a very
aggressive lower body action and make sure the body leads the hands through
the ball ( like Zac Johnson)… or they will will hit smothered shots
because they will be releasing the club head fast anyway and the stronger
grip will just shut the face down if the body isn’t leading big time.
With this swing, as opposed to the Moe Normal style swing, you have the
danger of hooking the ball left if your timing isn’t spot on right? This
swing is basically what the modern day pro’s do and they all seem to
periodically get into timing problems where the ball goes left. In your
most Recent Moe videos you seem to be getting sufficient lag to hit the
ball fantastic without the hips spinning forward and risking a hook.
Hi Freddy, as long as the lead side is in actual fact ‘leading’ the
downswing and the weight is moving forward and and around in a semi circle
you wont hook the ball because the lead hand/arm will be going with the
lead side of the body and not breaking down and letting the forearms roll
over to early, the secret is getting the right side leg drive to push the
lead side into rotational release, as long as everything is moving forward
(except your head) you will not hook the ball.
Its a completely different process to Moe’s swing, he ‘slides’ left…he
doesn’t ‘turn’ left.
