I was waiting for him to say at the end "and I don't care about any of that, because I just come to the range and whack balls all over the place". LOL

Thanks for posting this.  I implemented some of this today with excellent results.  I am considering doing a different thread with my thoughts so as not to take away from the nice job you have done here.

Glad u liked it. Believe me , this method is a lot easier than I thought. I load narrow.. Than unload in front of the ball.. Ball just gets in the way. A little tough with the driver yet, but rest of clubs are flying real nice

 

Hope it helped

Great video.  You should call it an 8 minute video in 4 minutes.  Haha

 

I am in love with this swing also.  More important, I am loving the concepts that this has brought to the forefront to me.

Rick.. A lot of ways to play this funny game.. But I'm digging this. And my bad back and rotator cuff really likes it .. No pain

 

Hitting the ball lower is nice too .. With more control.

Ditto, but I am hitting the ball higher with more control.  Go figure that out.

Regarding "swinger" versus "hitter," it sounds like you're hittin the ball great, and I wouldn't give it a second thought. It doesn't matter. Every part of society has this thing about labels and categories, and so many people spend a great portion of their lives chasing rainbows, trying to fit into the "label/category du jour."

 

I will have to disagree with this statement.  While I too, generally, am not fond of labels, the distinction between hitter vs swinger is far more than just a label.  A swinger powers the swing with a pull of the left hand and a hitter powers the swing by pushing with the right.

 

Since the majority of golf instruction is geared towards the swinger, it is important that everyone even contemplating this swing understand that the introduction of the right hand slap in the conventional swing, or swinger's swing realize it will be detrimental.

 

That was the whole reason for creating the Hitter vs Swinger thread.

This is interesting.  I always thought of it as a mental battle to avoid the "hit" mentality.  I know what a difference the mental focus between hit and swing makes for me.  Thinking about hitting the ball is about the worst thing I can do.

 

But I don't know that my actual swing is all "swinger".  I drop my hands with my right arm.  Getting more right arm/hand into it has transformed my driver especially.  It also feels to me that I use more hand action with a driver than with irons to release it.  I have a later release than I used to.  I used to pull too much.  My hands would follow my hip around causing a fade/slice instead of swinging away from my body after impact.  So physically, I may have some "hit" in my swing even though I mentally try to eliminate the thought of "hit".  

 

Regardless, I don't try to copy anyone and don't pay attention much to "tips" anymore.  It always introduces mechanical thoughts to what I'm doing which is almost as bad as "hit the ball" for me.  Mentally, it's all swing, and feel the weight of the club head increase smoothly with no jerky movements.  When I do that, it's pure.
