    Would you demonstrate a full out Davinci driver swing from a down the line view? Thank you.

      Hi Thomas,
      Next Video will do that for you.

    Inside an atomic reactor, I love it. Tennessee is -last week 10-30 degrees Fahrenheit, today, 70. Crazy! The saying here is, “if you don’t like the weather, stay around a few hours and you will”.

      Its the hottest summer I can recall relative to consecutive hot days… there has just been no let up … everyday it is stifling… and the forecast is the same for some time.

      1atomicgolf the fires in Gatlinburg were bad because we had 70 days with no rain but around 75 days at or above 90 F, I can empathize. Hydrate and be careful out there

      Hi Joe,
      I heard about those Gatlinberg fires….75 days of above 90 degs is brutal…. we haven’t had that run of days but it has been a long time hot everyday .
      cheers JH

    Awesome stuff JH! When you talk about your forearm and upper wrist actually contacting your pelvis/waist, I can definitely relate. I asked you on an earlier Davinci video if you felt that at setup…and it is definitely true for me. One thing that I discovered recently is that as I focused so hard on the takeaway, curling action of the trail arm, etc., that I was barely turning my shoulders. The result was that I wasn’t getting good compression on the golf ball, so my shots were weaker than normal and I was getting frustrated. With my old conventional swing, I would do what I called my Freddy (Couples) swing where I’d kind of lazily throw my arms to the outside on the takeaway and then make a big shoulder turn and loop the club back¬†into the slot, let the arms drop and just turn hard through the ball. I really tried to concentrate on having a soft grip and then just slap the heck out of the ball. It turns out that I was using a hinge-like action rather than cocking action, even back then, but didn’t really understand the difference. Most of the time I’d crush it and have a high draw. Short story long, I tried this the other day but just kept my right elbow connected, and slapped the ball hard! JH, I gotta tell ya that I smoked that ball like a cheap cigar the rest of the day. It helped my timing for sure as well as my contact. I really feel like, with this Davinci code swing, that I’ll never miss another shot. Thank you JH! The next step for me is to learn how to work the ball. Keep the videos coming JH! Thanks and cheers!

      Its great that you did your own investigation as to why you lacked the ‘zip’ on the shots…and frankly that,s what we all need to do because that,s the way you get your ‘own’ understanding of the swing.
      There are more details that I have to provide with better and easier uptake values…. I notice in my videos what I am doing is very odd looking on occasions and the movements are clearly exaggerated but I must explain the exaggeration drills more fully because a drill’look’ is not what the swing will be in final form…it will have the ‘feel’ but not the ‘look’ as such.
      cheers JH

    If you take a straight jacket, cut a 3″ dia. hole on the right side, put it on tight with your hands sticking out of the hole, you’ve got this swing down pat ūüėČ

      Hi George,
      Some people say I should be in a Straight Jacket ‘all’ the time…. but what you are saying is certainly relevant to the feel .

      Interesting idea. Does anyone know a reasonable patent attorney?

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      Maybe a variation on the Elephants Trunk shirt that JImmy Ballard invented for his connection swing…. but with the Elephants trunk around on the side.
      cheers JH

    Hey jh you’ve nailed it.to make along story short .keeping the lead foot sqaure with a lot of parimetric acc. is bad news for the knee anyway.good stuff.Cheers.standenthehandle

    JH.¬† Maybe you have answered this before but I was wondering, in your opinion,¬†if single length clubs would work better with the Davinci code swing…¬† thanks..

    • <path_to_url> 1atomicgolf

      From the reviews I have seen on the Cobra F7 irons they seem to work great… theoretically a 7 iron length club for most people is normally easy to hit so having that length in all the irons has to be a plus . the shorter 6/5/4 irons would I think be easier to get comfortable with with the Davinci Code swing because they would take away the desire to feel that you have to reach out to the ball because the club is longer than a 7 iron.
      Opinion Answer… I do think one length irons would be better… I was going to test the Cobra one length clubs today actually but I tore a calf muscle in the gym last night and I can hardly walk let alone swing a club right now… but I will test the irons when I recover from my injury.
      cheers JH

      Sorry to here about your injury..¬† Hope it’s not to serious and that you get well soon.¬† thanks for the input on the single length clubs.¬† Looking forward to seeing your next video.

    Hello Mr JH.
    This is Dave from Wigan, United Kingdom. Just want to start by saying I am a big fan of your work for the past few years. Your alternate thoughts about swinging a club are so refreshing!!! Thanks so much, you have really improved my game and you videos are fun to watch.

    The reason I am messaging you after all this time is that you have really hit the nail on the head with placing your left foot at the target. THIS IS GOLD DUST. Smashing every club with exactly the same conviction. The thing i have found is that I do not need any other trains of thought whist i swing. I turn the foot and i smash it like I would do a base ball bat.

    Ive been to the range every night to see if it was a fluke, but it is not, it is so consistent. Minimizing back swing variables. Turning the hips quicker. Back is not feeling twisted.

    Keep up the great work. Thank you

      Hi Dave,
      This is what my channel is all about… just providing different aspects of configuring a Golf Swing… the lead foot turned to the target is ‘part’ of the overall Davinci Code Swing but it can of course be used in isolation as you are doing now within any type of swing mechanics… its great that you have put it into play and you dont have to accompany it with anything else as a thought process .
      cheers Jh

      Thanks for the response jh. Love all the early moe macanics stuff. That’s how I found you, when I was mesmorised watching an interview of him discussing his swing. His swing had a big impact on me and I’ve studied it hard. I’m not just saying it but your swing ideas are better. More accessible for the club player. Plus you don’t rush through ideas, giving me time to process what you are saying.

      Great work mate, dave

    Very enjoyable Sir John. Mike Austin’s training aid, “the Flammer” was a harness that keep the hands and pectorals close in. I’ll keep in better touch.

      Hi Dave, ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Why don’t you take up the forum slack I am creating by my hiatus¬† and give the guys some of your knowledge¬† of Count Yogi’s swing mechanics and some of his life experiences that you know of… some Mike Austin stories would be really well received as well.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† cheers JH
