RBC Heritage 3rd round Leader: Golf Swing Analysis: Carl Pettersson

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

It might be surprising to some to see me compare the seemingly ungainly swing of 4 time PGA Tour winner Carl Pettersson with Ben Hogan’s.

I was following Carl at the Houston Open today and witnessed him making a hole-in-one on the 7th hole at Redstone Golf Club. He has a great game.

A lot of great players from 1920-1960 appeared to be OTT (including Jones, Snead and many others), mainly because they took the club back so deep and inside. So what looked like OTT in transition was actually a pretty normal downswing path. As someone who had struggled with a steep top of the swing position and a high right arm, it has helped me a lot to feel like the hands go ‘out’ in transition and I try to feel like my transition is like Snead’s. Almost feel like I am hitting a pull. When I don’t work on this, I go back to hitting a lot of thin, inside-out pushed, caused by getting me right arm stuck.
I personally think is is daft to try to take the club up and down on the same plane. Only a distinctive change in direction can be felt.
It was good to be able to revise this issue using this video. Thanks again.
