    Hi JH , I really look forward to your videos, please keep them coming, my
    game has really improved using your advice, you make the swing so
    understandable and less complicated, thanks for taking the time to help

      +robert finney Hi Robert,
      Glad the videos are helping you with your swing/game, my approach as I have
      said before is just to make available lots of different ways to swing a
      golf club and think about the swing, there are just so many ways to get a
      result for ‘yourself’ by trying something different, as well its just a
      whole lot of fun trying different stuff , I never get bored doing that.
      cheers Jh

    JH, check out “Tour Striiker”channel for a 1 hour plus Moe Norman driving
    range session that was recorded by Martin Chuck. Very interesting.

      +1atomicgolf Hey Mike,
      I checked out that video, I have seen it before, what you can see in the
      video that is very interesting for people that think Moe drove the club
      head down the line way longer than anyone else ever has is the part of the
      video shot from the roof directly above , clearly it is evident that he
      released the club head left and circular as do all great ball strikers, you
      can never deliberately drive the club head against the natural radius of
      the Golf Swing because the lead arm will separate from the upper torso and
      not rotate naturally.
      Moe ‘felt’ like he did a lot of things which he clearly didn’t do, as have
      just about every great player in the history of the game.. Harry Vardon
      said he threw the club head first as the start of his downswing to widen
      his arc, in old movie footage he is shown to be lagging the club head
      significantly, Jack Nicklaus said he felt the same as Vardon, but like
      Vardon he clearly lagged the club head , so for just about everyone ..’Feel
      Is never real’ in the Golf Swing…for me in particular.
      cheers Jh

      +1atomicgolf Very common statement about Moe Norman,, lets clear it up
      right now, Moe Norman could not tell anyone what he did in his swing, I
      believe it is true of Ben Hogan also no matter what Moe or Ben said was, as
      you say, what they felt and sometimes, but not all the time videos of their
      swings show something completely different..It more then likely Moe just
      could not tell you exactly what he did and Ben Hogan, I and others believe,
      did not want to tell you what he was really doing…both these guys were
      major range rats and dug their games out of the dirt so to say…

    if your lucky enough to have access to a fairly flat fairway bunker, hit a
    bucket of balls with nthis swing you will,gey it

      +Mark Sherer Hi Mark,
      I actually play all my fairway bunker shots like that, when I say ‘all’ I
      don’t get in many fairway bunkers but when I do I use this swing process,
      the one thing you want in a fairway bunker is super stability for the
      strike because you want all the distance you can get if you have a decent
      The only modification I make is to play the ball a bit further back in my
      stance so as to guarantee I hit the ball absolutely clean with no chance of
      a fat shot.
      You know sometimes I take maybe 50 balls into a flat bunker and hit them
      out with a 4 iron , its a great practice drill for testing your stability
      at impact.
      cheers JH
