Lee Trevino: Golf Swing Analysis

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

Trevino controlled the ball as well as anyone ever, preferring a low fade with the longer clubs, and was a master with the wedge. What jumps out about his swing, other than his idiosyncratic alignment, is the massive bend he produces in his posture as he swings, which should have long ago put to rest the conventional notion that it is a good idea to “maintain posture” during the swing.

Wayne, love your item-by-item analysis, but isn’t fair to say that all Lee is trying to do is deliver the club on or below the original shaft plane? Seems unlikely in 1965 that he could have had much more in mind.
