Two word comment says it all, I hope the video was
enlightening for you, it really is a very simple swing to uptake and the
results can be amazing, a couple of guys I teach tried it yesterday and
were just shaking their heads in disbelief at its results.
The secret is the smooth acceleration and the the
‘no hit’ at the ball , the left arm parallel to the ground at the top of
the back swing is also a very important key, its so simple its crazy the
motion has not been promoted before. regards JH
+1atomicgolf The results have been better with the short and mid irons but
I continue to work at it. Smooth acceleration with pivot and connection are
improving my game.
JH what is the feel? I mean are you taking it back with the hands? the
arms? or is it the body that is the power on the way back?
On the downswing, what is the initial move? Would you call it an arm swing,
hands, or is it a body pivot that powers the downswing?
Thanks, enjoy your videos…
The back-swing is very definitely a body/arms connection all
going away at the same time, imagine the upper arms triceps area glued to
the inside of the Pec area , the elbow of the right arm can be free from
the upper body/rib-cage but only the amount that occurs whilst keeping the
upper arm glued to the Pec area.
Whatever level of connection you have on the back-swing you
need to ‘try’ and ‘increase’ that amount of connection on the downswing,the
whole action is pivot ‘driven’ and the hands arms are completely passive
going back and starting down to the ball, the pivoting of the hip girdle
going back and coming down is the power accumulator for the hands/arms
I personally put a lot of right foot/knee ‘drive’ early in the
downswing to take the urge out the hands/arms wanting to apply themselves
early on in the downswing, in fact when I am hitting the ball well I feel
as if my right knee is driving past my right forearm before impact, that
doesnt actually happen but it needs to ‘feel’ as if it does.
JH…I’m going to the range today to work on this swing. I like the
Time for a new video??
I have been in the middle of moving residence for the last few months so
the video’s have been hard to coordinate at the venue I used to use because
its 160 kilometer’s from my new address, however my new home has its ‘own’
practice fairway and I have just finished setting up the filming areas and
my teaching tee areas so I will be doing some new vids from this week on.
The good thing about the break is I have had a lot of time to think about
some new ideas which I think everyone will like a lot, I cant wait to put
the ‘new’ ideas/processes on video, I have trialed them in the last few
days and they work a treat, and so they should because they should because
they are really the ‘non negotiable s’ of swing mechanics, you cant swing
consistently and make good contact and have good accuracy if you” dont” do
do you teach more of the moe norman method or conventional
+Benjamin Jones Hi Benjamin, I teach all processes of the golf swing…. I
am a basically a ‘fixer’ of swings generally… if players want to change
to something like Moe’s method I give them an honest appraisal as to their
capabilities to embrace the method because of its great difference to their
existing golf swings.
To make big changes to most peoples golf swings really doesn’t make a lot
of sense unless you are young and have the time and commitment for
‘big’changes to the golf swing …most competent swing problems can be
addressed easily by myself on most occasions because the problems are
normally just structural re adjustments/resetting of the original swing
when it was working OK.
To change a persons normal swing mechanics to something very different is a
big commitment and frankly most club golfers just don’t have the time or
true requirement for ‘radical’ golf swing mechanics changes, I can ‘Tune
Up’ most reasonably competent golf swings with very little structural
changes being required, if the players swing ‘worked’ well once it can be
made work well again, its only a matter of understanding an individuals
bio-mechanical capabilities and then working within those capabilities.
and yes i subscribed
This a great example of less is more.
+Saul Montanza That’s a great analogy/description of the Short Controlled
Swing , ok its not for everyone but it does have a lot to recommend it for
those players that have trouble with controlling a long loose swing, lots
of people I have exposed to the mechanics have had great success with it.
As a golfer playing with an ascending aneurysm I’m looking for a swing that
doesn’t make me coil as much any ideas? count yogi, Mike Austin?
+D Martins Wow… that’s a tough one to solutionize…. when you say your
condition is not conducive to ‘coiling’ do you mean specifically ‘coiling’
or ‘rotating’…. ‘Coiling’ is invariably turning with torque attached,
‘rotating’ is turning without any deliberate ‘torquing’ up of the
I can understand you wouldn’t want any stresses on the central chest part
of your body which would be subjected to stresses because of the resistance
to the turning by the ‘torque’ factor of resistance to the turning, if you
just let your right side be passive on the backswing with no resistance in
the trail leg or hip the body should just turn in a softish circle .
OK you wont have any ‘stored’ energy as such because you didn’t turn
against any resistance like the trail knee or hip so there will be no
‘elastic’ reflex motion to create storage of energy in the downswing
against the club head by the wrists hands etc.
However because you made a backswing turn with no resistance to the body
you should have been able to go back quite a way with your shoulders/ arms
, more so than than in a normal ‘resisted’ backswing, and as a result the
club head should travel further than normal which should create enough
speed to offset the loss of the ‘coil torque’ power producers.
Now because you have no torque in the swing at the top you will have no
automatic starting down mechanism which is invariably the lower body in a
torqued up type swing, so you have to make sure you somehow start the
downswing with the lower body otherwise you will just throw your hands at
the ball as the first start down process.
So you need to mentally key on starting the downswing with your lead knee
and forget about everything else , if you do that the hands/arms have to be
‘followers’ not ‘leaders in the downswing.
I guess you could technically just not turn at all with your body in the
backswing and just lift your arms/hands straight up and let them ‘fall’
down to the ball at impact, that would take any turning of the chest out of
the swing but it would not generate much power .
Mike Austin coiled up unbelievably because he was so flexible and strong so
his swing is not a model for you, Count Yogi didnt coil as much but was a
huge ‘turner’ of his body, ok he did not stress his body with torque but it
did move through a huge range of turning motion, I guess the only thing I
can say is don’t load up your backswing with tension or torque, just let
the lead side of the body move to the trail side with no resistance, man
that’s a tough problem to come up with a solution with merit..
yes, it is a tough problem even a deadly problem, lol… Thank you for the
response I will try it and see how it works out.
Jh, went out yesterday and played 9 holes with no swing thoughts and shot a
2 under. just thought about hitting to target with no thoughts. it works.
Wow thats a good result, the ‘targeting’ thought is so strong that if you
apply it absolutely with great commitment it virtually programmes all the
physical/mechanical swing requirements to produce the swing you need to get
the ball to the ‘target'[…ok you have to have already a swing that has
good structure obviously and if that is the case the ‘thinking target’ only
lets those good mechanics perform in an unobstructed manner.
Yes, I already have a swing but when you swing with no thought I’m so much
more accurate and 1/2 club longer. A baseball player has no swing thoughts,
a hockey player has no shot thoughts, when you throw something there is no
thought except target, why have all those swing thoughts in golf?
