When you say Lee, who are you talking about? Trevino??
Lee Comeaux. You can find him on YT. His swing technique is similar to what
JH’s Davinci Code swing.
JH. Have you been on the golf course with this new swing technique? How are
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
That ball flight at 7.13 is amazing
The ball flight generally is really consistent in its shape and
trajectory…. and the contact is very clean … no fats or thins.
well said JH!
Good to hear from you…
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
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.
I played my first round with this swing yesterday. It added 20 strokes to
my game ! Glad it works for you JH.
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
thanks JH, i will follow you closely…
I hope its a good journey for you… I am very excited about the swing
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
Lea Pustetto Ed p just has videos off Lee Comeaux. That’s Lee
Know nothing but Christ crucified hey thanks. much appreciated. dynamic
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
as a right-hander who plays lefty this is impossible unless I try it
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…
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
OMG! Thanks for sharing. I have super weak grip and makes the “fold and
snap” much more powerful.
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
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
thx for the video.
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
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…
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Or not react so quickly my rythym obviously went alittle
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.
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.
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?
FOCUS on that spot in the swing?
Can you WILL the club face to hit that section of the ball on contact??
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.
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
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.
you are an inspiration
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…
Bruce Lee ?
