    great further explanation. Today I played 9 holes under a torrential rain
    as here in victoria was really raining cats and dogs…My master grips
    really helped, I find them fantastic, leather really hepls in odd weather
    I hit a 3 wood 230 yds, whiplashing it.
    then I practiced the Da vinci method with a 4 i I hit about 20 balls from
    170 yds I found that the softer I was swinging the greater the results. I
    was astonished. out of 20 balls 15 were in within 20 feet from the pin. ok
    the rain helps as the balls slow down on the green but it was very
    Took a look at that Mizuno jpx 900, it s a bit pricey for now… But looks
    at 24.06 is what I think I felt since day one trying it…It works!!!
    Thx JH great work.

      Hi Edoardo,
      Its still only early days of learning the swing process so even better
      things should manifest themselves … I certainly do not lose any distance
      … the power is plenty adequate… I must say after hitting the new Srixon
      driver yesterday I prefer it to the Mizuno… but thats because its a
      deeper face and it suits my higher tee ball.
      cheers JH

    This swing is good stuff JH. Keep it coming and I hope you get some more
    from Lee who is very giving as well. It’s just so straight! Length ends up
    as a byproduct later in the process.

      Hi Michael,
      It will be good when I can get some of Lee’s actual mechanics into the
      swing… I dont want to start saying this is what Lee ‘does’ until I really
      understand what he does… and I dont right now.
      He is a giving guy as you say so going forward we should be able to get
      some understanding going.
      cheers JH

    Fun to see you really enjoying this method. I’ve been back and forth with
    Lee myself. He’s a good guy, willing to help.

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      Hi Joe,
      Lee from what I have heard from other people is a very giving guy …he has
      already liaised with me quite a bit already but we need to really have a
      face to face Skype session to nail down the intricacies of his mechanics
      and how ‘he’ actually puts it all together , that will happen soon I hope.
      cheers Jh

    Hey JH! So glad to get your next installments on the Davinci Code Swing. I
    have a question. In many swing techniques that I’ve used over the years, I
    was trying to the delay the hit/create maximum lag. With this new swing, do
    you feel like you’re trying to release the club much earlier? I’ve hit some
    pretty sweet shots with this swing but been having trouble with the timing
    of the hit. By the way, during my practice session yesterday, I was hitting
    little push fades. The block to the right has always been my miss because
    I’ve never had a great release (it’s hard for me to draw the ball). I
    played some of my best golf hitting a little block fades (ala Trevino) but
    I do lose a half to full club distance. Thanks for doing these videos!

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      I dont actually try to hold any lag in my swing by holding back the club
      head with my wrists etc… I try to load the club head with momentum on the
      back swing and then just turn against that momentum with my trail side
      upper shoulder quadrant which pressures the trail arm into compression and
      keeps load on the club head.
      I dont have the club face open at all on the back swing… its always as a
      feeling a bit closed which eliminates it being open at impact and it
      promotes the small drawing ball flight, as well I am always a bit closed
      with my shoulders at impact and consequently my attack direction is always
      in to out .
      The secret for me getting the club head to release is getting it ‘loaded’
      on the back swing correctly…. you have to feel the club head still moving
      backwards as you change direction for the down swing and then do not
      interrupt the feeling of the club head still going back wards as you change
      direction for the down swing… its a very difficult feeling to get but its
      the absolute key for my storage of the club head …. and you need storage
      to get any type of natural release action.
      cheers JH

    JH-what is Lee’s last name? I can’t quite catch it on the videos.

    • <path_to_url> Pat Ryan

      Thanks JH

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      Hi Pat… if you have never seen Lee hit the ball before you are in for a
      treat…. I feel so eanemic by comparison of strike.
      cheers Jh

  6. <path_to_url> michael broderick

    Lee sent me a comment saying it’s all in the release. That to me rang very
    true. Later I found, in a video of him called sole pounding, the way his
    feet moved and how he transferred weight. The light bulb went on again and
    I started to play very good golf in the 70s. You have me intrigued again
    and I am revisiting 99.9 percent video. Everytime I watch it along with
    your video’s it makes more sense than when I first came upon Lee’s vids.
    Keep up the good vibes JH. You’re forever helping my game! Thanks and

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      He sent me a video with the emphasis on that too, but I haven’t got my head
      around it yet, I will probably get a better understanding for it when we
      finally speak face to face… I havent seen the ‘Soul Pounding’ video yet
      so that may give me a better appreciation .
      cheers JH

    So tried this out on the course for the first time today. 1st what I will
    say is I’m getting more height with my shots and from 120yards in I’m
    getting great hold on the greens. I’ve been much more consistent and just
    need to keep working at it as it’s so different from what I’m used to. I’m
    tending to hit dead straight shots but left! Thanks for your videos and
    think this could really be the swing I’ve been looking for

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      If the ball is going left you could be disconnecting the trail arm from the
      side a bit to much which will let the arm run off by itself and tend to
      flip/roll left to early…that cant happen if the trail arm stays connected
      more because the only way you get the club head to the ball then is by way
      of the connected pivot.
      Just hit maybe 20 half pitch shots and really get the feeling of the trail
      shoulder quadrant taking the club head to the ball with the elbow
      connection really staying in place.
      cheers JH

    Wonderful insight jh.you have helped me brake this down into what I’m going
    to call the power pivot slot.cheers

    Glad to see you have an understanding of the right arm movement and are
    excited about it. When I first felt that 6 years ago I was as excited as
    you and still am. When anyone is excited, it make it more difficult to push
    your body deeper to its maximum capability, but that is what you must do. I
    have been working on this concept for over 6 years and there is more to it
    then the right arm movement. There are aspects of what you say in this
    video that I have found to be incorrect, but I do not want to pick you
    apart as I realize that you are describing what you know and when you know
    more you will describe it better so I am going to let you discover things
    for yourself as that will make you own it better. If you watch the video I
    did in the link above I want to draw your attention to the right armpit and
    focus you in on that as one aspect of what that right arm movement is
    leveraging. I believe it is leveraging the right foot into the ground, the
    right knee, right hip, right ribs, and right armpit…whole right side. You
    seem worried about taking too long of a backswing and how fast you are
    moving, but I think you should be more concerned about how deep into your
    body you are getting with your right foot, knee, hip, and armpit and all of
    that will move slower as you achieve that. You can get your butt way
    further back at address which will allow you to get your torso more forward
    and more ground force all of which will keep your right side more stable so
    you can get more leverage for the right arm movement that you are
    describing…do deep squats as an exercise and see if you can get your butt
    to touch the ground with your chest high and forward so you can push your
    body to the limit in the actual golf swing. I like how you say to think
    about what you are going to do and then do it. Keep doing that and you will
    continue to improve. I believe you can achieve more power then you are
    showing in this video if you get deeper into your body and mind so you
    truly understand your self and get the most out of your self. Good work.

    • <path_to_url> RockBurke

      1atomicgolf god designed your mind and body and only he will ever know what
      is truly going on. Trust your mind and body as s divine creation and you
      will achieve what you are looking for.

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      The difficulty for me which I have told Lee is that I am body science
      trained and Human Behavioral process thinking trained as well …. my whole
      thinking uptake trait is that of an ‘Analytical’ thinker…not a
      ‘Pictorial’ thinker…..I would love to escape into the non formal
      ‘dimensions’ of thought application but at my age I think the neural
      information pathways are probably a bit to solidly embedded with my
      traditional ‘Empirical Evidence =Understanding’ thinking.
      I know what you are saying and I know Lee absolutely lives in that
      realm…I would love to go there as well but I dont think I can let go of
      my analytical personality enough to get there, I will try to ‘Hybrid’ the
      processes ….this is a fairly ‘Old Dog’ you know…. and ‘new’ tricks are
      not easy.
      cheers JH

    • <path_to_url> RockBurke

      1atomicgolf looks like you are in great shape. The mind can adapt at any
      age. You can get anything you want if you focus and believe. Yes you will
      never beat Usain bolt in 100m dash but you can certainly change how you
      think. You will have to slow way down like you are a baby and start at the
      beginning until you find your way and not allow your old self to take over
      your thinking. You are s divine creation and can achieve what you want.

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      I know where you are coming from… everything you say is actually my
      domain of training….I know I am certainly not a ‘Divine Creation’… Lee
      could be though.
      I am restructuring my my neural programming uptake rates and will be
      embarking on the ‘Baby Steps’ approach , its all still such early days and
      I know there is much to take on board.
      cheers JH.

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      Lee has certainly tapped into that level of thinking… I need to be able
      to break into that dimension of acceptance.
      cheers JH

    No BS just plain velvet compression

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      Well maybe not ‘Velvet’ compression yet … but I feel personally that the
      impact is improving nicely and I believe it will get to a stage of
      reasonable quality for my level of expertise.
      cheers JH

    • <path_to_url> Cho co

      You figured out how the Right arm works ; so know you have zillions of ways
      to speed to throwing motion !

      That’s why pro wear gloves it is to enhance grip traction without squeeze =
      velvet Good job

  11. <path_to_url> Thomas Thomast

    I went to the range and tried starting down, with the club laying on
    mid/top of shoulder.
    I hit 15 ballsand all were good. I felt a need to bow the wrist out (Hogan)
    AT IMPACT, or else it would be a weak hit. Was truely a good feeling to add
    the bowing.
    So the next day I showed it to my swing coach here in LA. I could not get
    one ball to do it. Crap. He told me I was skipping the part where you turn
    and not stand-upto soon.

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      Its a ‘total’ package of pivot mechanics… one blends into another…leave
      one ‘out’ and you will not be able to ‘repeat’ the process… its still
      early days of learning for you so just work your way into it a bit at a
      time… I am still doing that myself.
      cheers JH
