This looks very nice JH ! I surely will try it this weekend….What about allingment and ball pos. ?
As normal ball position for me is purely a resultant of getting my balance and alignment correct whilst setting up for the shot… when my alignment and balance are feeling correct my ball position is where it ‘needs’ to be…because my hands /arms are in the same position for every shot my ball position just ends up being a non event in terms of a thinking requirement.
Yes, me too, same as Torbjørn, JH… ball placement in the stance. Sometimes you look like you’re setting up for a draw. Yesterday I couldn’t figure out my 8 iron ball placement in the stance.
Hi Brian ,
I really am terrible with my camera positioning and its very difficult to determine where my ball position actually is… as I have said always for me ball position is just a resultant of me getting my balance and alignment feel correct …. because my hands/arms are always in the same centralized position for all clubs my ball position is just ‘where it ends up is correct’ type deal.
I guess instinctively over the years I have just worked out a ball position that is correct for me by varying it relative to ball strike requirement and accuracy of flight… and over the years with students I just moved the ball forward or back to achieve consistent ball striking quality for players… I never advocate a ‘specific’ ball position for anyone because we all move differently into impact .
For me the simple equation is when you have the right ball flight and direction you have the correct ball position, I will do something specific on ball positioning in the next batch of videos.
Hi JH. When do you feel like you’re letting the soft ball pitch go? How about “DiVinci Down Under” for a name?
I feel like the ball is being released after my forearm stretches to its maximum away from the still connected elbow at my side, almost like the trail elbow runs into the upper hip area and is stopped and the forearm keeps on going and it stops then the wrist hinge flashes by the forearm and fingers flash away from the stopped wist hinge…
No jh. The winding is not fallin out of the clock you just found another way to winding it.you do look pretty stiff on full shot maybe take some of out and find your plane with the club against your upper arm take all the tension out fold back and through with the fan catupult.good stuff cheers.
Just standinthehandle cheers jh.
The ‘Handle’ not the club head is absolutely paramount in my thinking application…the more I can put the brakes on the the handle just before impact the quicker the club head goes.
Yes it’s where everything zeros out for me while everything’s going around the corner effortlessly. Cheers sir.
Or maybe the spit millisecondand maybe would be a better way to put it . Not sure its deffientlly ground zero. I have never seen my swing personally maybe I should vidio my swing.
Had some fun and great success using this technique…looks like you sincerely are on to something. For those trying and struggling a bit…I found that I had to slow down my back swing a good deal to get my right hand in the position that I wanted (which is dangerously close to Martin Ayers’ twirl position, IMO..lol!). I also had to keep reminding myself to keep the right elbow attached ….results were great. The pitch technique, though counter-intuitive, was especially effective….but you MUST stop that handle and let those fingers continue. Thanks JH…great fun. Regards, Ed.
Hi Ed, Because Marty and I hit a lot of shots together when he was formulating ‘The Most Powerful Move In Golf’ I probably have embedded pictures of the ‘Twirl’ and it manifests itself in a fashion in my process….the elbow attachment and the throwing of the fingers ‘away’ from the forearm is a key feeling.
Its very early days but I truly believe I am on to something big with this process…. it works to well not to be a breakthrough of significance…. and to date it just keeps getting better every day.
what are you using to control pitching distance since the positions are not too discernible between your 110 yd and 40 yd SW pitches
Distance differentials are simply are result of the speed application of the fingers in the pitching action… I just vary the speed of the wrist hinge and the finger throw for different distances.
I see Because I was having problems not using a full swing to pitch in-between distances as could not establish the clock positions when not doing full bicep curls; will try to get a feel for what you have said, much tnx appreciate all ur efforts to help folks understand the finer aspects that are not immediately obvious
JH, tested the swing today on a club weekly turnement – 9 hole, 37 p : got 1st place with 3 over pair !
…and this was absolutely first time i used this swing, never tried before even on the range, only looked at yiur vids….
Yes jh the handle stand is a feeling for me when everything is firing though beautifully. Actuality on the stance . I have found a preload formula that could be used and ajusted fo
So what is the ‘ preload formula’…..
JH Love your stuff.Have struggled with the game on and off for 25yrs despite success in surf lifesaving.Davinci with trebuchet[not many know about them]and softball pitch is my last throw of the dice.Am now 70 so it s Davinci or Ebay for the clubs !!!Peter M
I know ‘Davinci’ will be your savior… it really is such a repeatable swing after you get the understanding of it… just hang in there for a while longer and I am sure the info I will develop will get you understanding the swing much easier, dont think ‘EBAY’ just yet.
cheers JH PS Being 70 you have clearly put a lot of time and effort into getting a Golf Swing that ‘works’… dont give up now when the answer is just around the corner.
My apologies for you on our plane.cheers
Ok jh. Actually I picked up from you been using for awhile now.if you move the toe of the right foot it opens and closes the hips and shoulders.ok where open closed toes up the line now preset right butt
Going down the road here sorry.preset lower body and shoulders . Game over
Brake time . Yes ist pretty good stuff.if I preset a closed stace up the lline if that makes any sense the toes are parrallel up the line closed so the hips and shoulders are open.just preset them square to target line a give it a go cheers
I m not sure but us normal people can’t Make that open move with out maybe getting a head start .the catulpult.ok I diegriess cheers.
I think the closed setup gives you the ‘head start’ you want in the back swing… load the club correctly and the rest of the swing is a done deal.
The goal of finding a GOLF MOTION is one that does a few things.
1. Does not cause pain
2. Uses the Bone structure more
3. Increase results
most important and really the only reason for me was.
4. HAVE IT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE NO MATTER HOW OLD ONE IS.
This is what I think the main goal should be of a Golfer to understand how to find a motion that he can take anywhere anytime as long as they want to play. Its not fancy but it is the most simple reason a person should want to understand their motion. I just decided that that was more important than learning how to be a shot maker. In the end thats exactly what I became after all but it was the simple foundation it was built on that got me there. Eventhough I can hit any shot I can see in my mind the only one I think about is straight. Now a straight shot can fall one way or the other and then you must consider the forward motion after the ball lands as well. Most people think about working the ball and thats all, Compression is a after thought or a hope or even a mystery. Good motion takes care of all of it and practicing that motion with varying degrees of Intent or effort. I always practice hitting my clubs the least distance possible with the max being un important. One must also realize or accept that a club has limits as well as us. So If you hit say a 7 Iron 160 but you want it to go 170 then lower your trajectory and let it release the other 10. If you are trying to get more air miles out of the shot you may be at max at 160. Its about the distance the ball ends up NOT FLIES this must be understood. I try to make every one of my shots roll out like a putt now that does not always happen BUT most of the time it does.
Look at it this way go get a scorecard from any course you play start hole by hole if the first hole is lets say 440 yds then do the math on what sequence of clubs you can possibly hit.
here would be mine
1st shot 2nd shot = 440
4i 220 4i 220
3i 240 5i 200
3w 270 7i 170
D 320 pw or sw 120
3i 240 3i 200
3w 250 5i 190
D 280 8i 160
D 250 4i 190
So as you can see there are many ways to get the ball 440 yds in 2 shots you just have to understand which one is the easiest to do under pressure or just in general. There are other factors that effect that as well down the fairway that for this conversation are not in play just DISTANCE is in play. 440 is a long par 4 for most and if it were 360 par 4 then its another set of combinations.

I can also say I am hitting it solid after consulting with Lee. Better than ever! A huge benefit to me is the absence of pain! I don’t complain about it here, because it’s of no benefit to others…but I have a terrible lower back. Nerve issues. Since I have been working with Lee’s ideas, I can hit balls all day. Not only is there no pain, but I’m not even stiff when I wake up in the mornings! I can see myself using this swing the rest of my life. Hitting it awesome + no pain = genius.
Lee is generous with his knowledge and is interested in seeing us all improve. That is a wonderful thing and I hope it comes back around to him tenfold.

Lee is like a fine wine to me, it has been in my celler for some time and I knew it was ther but, did not really understand how good it was until I popped the cork!
I think it is awesome that Lee is getting such a warm welcome and showing you the long sought after results so many of you have been longing for. I have been blessed to have such a great friend and talent to share my ideas with, I let Lee without question take my OPCS ideas, his own ideas and try them all on me. This past weekend I finally let it happen on Sunday, playing with Lee in our big money game around 40 players, I impressed myself big time. Just to refresh everyone’s memory (I have NOT hit a range ball in over 2 months and Sunday I made 5 birdies plus holed out for Eagle on a par 5… Lots of great feeling shots and no matter if they shapped like I expected, they all turned out to be playable, except for 1 and it found it’s way into a pond at the end of the fairway in front of the green. Funny thing is, I hit it just like I wanted or better and that pond is 340yards to reach, the ball 2 hop in!

I can’t say Lee is a genius. Unless you define genius as,” an insatiable thirst for golf knowledge and a work ethic Tiger would admire, along with a passion for the sound and feel of the perfectly struck golf ball’, then I would agree.
Let me say one thing about Lee, If I may, Lee impressed me because I knew how much he cared ,before I cared how much he knew. Good luck Lee, You’ve earned it. Mark

Hi Jason, You clearly are a Comeaux fan…. I think Lee is as well a Unique person in the world of Golf swing mechanics application. None of the stuff I espouse is CMotion mechanics … the only time I have mentioned Lee’s mechanics was to just generally talk about him and his outlook on his type of swing mechanics and to give a bit of accolade to him personally relative to his general ball striking prowess. I don’t advocate any CMotion mechanics or swing philosophies simply because I don’t understand them to the degree that I can do them justice with any opinion analysis ….. frankly I would only be able to take on board an understanding of CMotion if I could stand beside Lee and physically go through with him what I see him doing in his swing …. match the ‘words’ with ‘Physical Process’…. maybe that will happen later in the year if I get over to the US as I am intending. cheers JH
