    JH-maybe it’s the camera angle-but it looks like your ball position is
    farther forward than normal. Comments?

      Hi Pat,
      Are you referring to the Driver or irons…I could be playing the ball a
      bit further forward at present because I am loading a bit more on the
      forward vertical axis with the new swing… because I am an instinctive
      balance feeler of my body at address my ball position just ends up being
      where it is to suit my balance needs.
      I am not a ball ‘position’ thinker’….it always ends up where it needs to
      ‘Be’….as well because I always take my grip before I address the ball I
      am never fiddling with the club head or shaft angle over the ball … my
      hands are positioned where they need to be for my arms/hands balance
      requirements and the ball just ends up being in front of the club
      face…wherever that ends up being…which strangely enough ends up being
      in the ‘right’ place.
      cheers JH

    I think it would awesome if you could get lee to describe his feelings on
    this. But I hope you are getting over the flu.I can hear the weakness in
    your voice. Please take care and get rest.

      i Bill,
      I need Lee to give me the inside lowdown on his process… I can see the
      process in its superficial visual appearance…much the same way you ‘see’
      an F1 car performing on a track… but understanding the
      mechanics/engineering of how the F1 car achieves its amazing performance is
      the real insight provider.
      Yeah we need the ‘Blueprints’ of Lee’s ‘F1 Golf Swing’….
      cheers JH

    In your actual swing compared to your practice swing – You seem to keep the
    lead arm absolutely straight … When do you break the wrists?

    In practice swing you break immediately it seems but it looks like you
    start backswing by pushing club away with lead arm – but that is just how I
    see it – Any comment appreciated – Beautiful sound off your shots. Thanks.

      Hi Jim,
      My precursor practice swing is what I ‘want’ to achieve in my swing…. my
      ‘actual’ swing is my old swing holding on to its program…. ultimately I
      want my back swing to look like my practice swing … I am trying with my
      practice swing to ingrain the folding bicep curl and the early club head
      I am as you see it pushing the club away with my left arm as apposed to
      picking it up with my right hand/arm…. its hard to get the brain to
      remove the old lead side arm/hand push away in the back swing that I have
      had for so long…. the good thing is that when I do end up getting the
      early fold and the extra club head travel I will have so much more club
      head speed in the swing…its a work in progress right now.
      cheers Jh

    JH I’m trying to copy your low back swing because of a bad shoulder and I
    like what I’m doing. Any idea what is making me push the ball with the
    Davinic swing when I try to hit the outside of the ball.
    When I hit it straight and 10 yrds longer than normal I feel my right arm
    works away from my right side on the down swing. I’m a RH golfer. What do
    you feel your right arm does just before impact? Any comments is
    appreciated. Thank you.

      Hi Ray,
      That,s a hard one to diagnose… I couldn’t hit a push shot if I was
      actually hitting the outside of the ball because you cant get an inside out
      attack path that is severe enough to push the ball in direction because of
      the mechanics geometry of hitting the outside of the ball.
      I find my attack path when hitting the outside of the ball is virtually
      straight lining through the ball….I can only think you are actually not
      firing the right shoulder quadrant at the ball whilst still keeping the
      connection of the right elbow to the rib cage strong enough and letting the
      right arm run off by itself which it can then just fire straight out at the
      ball and beyond on that line instead of tracking with the right shoulder
      quadrant on a semi circle to the ball then just onto the ball and then
      continuing on through the ball target wards.
      Just hit some 50/60 yard shots with a wedge and concentrate on feeling the
      elbow and the right shoulder tip moving at the same rate out to and through
      the ball.
      My right arm feels like it stops at impact and the club head fires past the
      the right forearm , like a slinging flat circular shape of movement of the
      club head…if you can conceptualize that… I will be doing more on what
      that actually feels like soon.
      cheers JH

    I was able to get this swing to work with long irons yesterday after having
    success with wedges last week. One thing I love about this swing is that my
    issue with hand injuries from coming down steep and digging deep divots has
    vanished. Bacon strips, not pork chops as Moe would say. I have not gotten
    it to work super reliably yet since about a third of the time I go blank in
    the downswing and my hands move too fast and get too far ahead. The best
    swings are when I feel my hands are moving no faster towards the ball than
    my right elbow and hip are. It’s a feeling of deliberately limiting the
    rotation speed of my hands around the arc to no faster than my right elbow
    is rotating. It’s hard to do reliably if you didn’t learn the golf swing
    that way.

      Hi Freddy,
      I am actually feeling the handle of the club stopping at impact and the
      club head rocketing past it…no hands travel past my body as a feeling…
      very much a ‘Trebuchet’ action action..look up how a Trebuchet works and
      you will get my impact feeling.
      I dont take divots at all most times…if I do they are less intrusive than
      even ‘bacon strips’…..
      cheers JH

    Could you just explain ‘hitting the outside of the ball’ please – is that
    the far, rear quadrant?

    When you try to stop handle – and club head continues – is it down the line
    / out to 10 o clock or in to 7 o clock? Thanks JH.

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      Imagine the club face coming ‘over’ the top of the rear outside quadrant of
      the golf ball at impact…the reality is that the actual point of impact is
      just under the equator of the ball marginally with the leading edge of the
      club face but the ‘feeling’ point of impact is the ‘top’ of the rear
      outside quadrant of the ball.
      Its a crazy mechanics to achieve because you need to feel an ‘over the top’
      polishing type effect of the club face on the ball … not the ‘under the
      equator marginally’ point of actual impact.
      When I try to stop the grip end of the club at impact I sling the club head
      past the grip end in what feels like a dead straight linear direction…
      that happens as a ‘feel’ because you cant hit the outside of the ball from
      an inside to out attack path really… you have to basically get the club
      going very straight line into that outside quadrant or you will pull/drag l
      the ball .
      I need clearly to do a lot of explanation on this aspect and I will be way
      better equipped to do that after I talk one on one with Lee Comeaux…
      which hopefully will be soon.
      Cheers JH

    Jh. I need help….I have back issues….as well as being barrel
    chested….how do I turn on backswing

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      Hi Howie, ,
      I think you should just try to get your arms separated from your chest at
      address ….by getting your hands higher at address and your upper arms
      away from the sides of your body…. that will free up your arms to move
      independently of your body which will eliminate the need to actually turn
      your body as a physical conscious thing.
      You need to feel like your upper arms are away from your body and you can
      just swing your arms straight up and down in a vertical lifting action. you
      will be surprised how by just lifting the hands/arms straight upwards from
      address how much the shoulders will respond automatically with some degree
      of turning…but the turning will not be forced and your arms will not be
      trapped by your sides as they probably now are.
      You will be surprised at how much club head travel you will get by just
      lifting the arms straight up from address away from the body and the
      reduction of strain on your back from the turn you have to make when your
      arms are connected to your sides.
      The new Davinci Code type swing is not good for someone like you that
      actually needs to get the trail arm ‘away’ from their body on the back
      swing and downswing…..you need the complete ‘opposite’ arm actions.
      If you give me your email address I will do a short video for you showing
      you what I am advocating for you specifically.
      cheers JH
