in his Little Red Book, Harvey Penick said Mickey Wright learned the Alex Morrison style golf swing in California. Morrison taught to point the chin back of the ball and keep it there until after impact. He also taught to roll the left ankle in the backswing.. two things you point out in your great analysis. Jack Grout was a Morrison disciple so it is probably no coincidence that Nicklaus had the same features in his swing. Penick said that Wright’s favorite pastime was to go to Ft Worth and sit and watch Ben Hogan practice. She asked Hogan if he minded. He replied, “Not as long as you don’t say anything.” Penick said Wright practiced with an elastic loop that held her arms together… something Hogan wrote about. Interesting connections between… Morrison/Wright/Hogan/Grout/Nicklaus.
