I’ve been teaching for over 25 years, and staring at video of myself and Ben Hogan for 30. What you are going to see in this video is the most important piece of information that I have uncovered in all that time. I think you will agree when you watch that this is original thought. You won’t see this anywhere because it isn’t anywhere else. I guess I’m getting old enough and wise enough to see things that I haven’t before. I really don’t know how else to explain why I haven’t seen this well before now. I can only say that a combination of constant study in the form of playing competitively and teaching daily has led me to a point where I can see and feel the golf swing more clearly than previously. We are at any point the sum of all that has come before us, and 40 years of my life in golf has led to this moment.
The “out and then down” movement that I am talking about is so obvious in both Hogan and Snead , that when I see the swings now it is almost annoying. The move to position the right arm so that it comes down in front of the right hip is historical and revolutionary at the same time. You can go back over 60 years to find Hogan and Snead in their prime, and yet the true picture of what they were doing has never been presented to the public. I think that you will find that the ideas that emerge from their swings to be an epiphany for your own swing if you can manage to incorporate it. This will not be easy. The movement is fairly complex, and it is usually completely counter to what the golfer is used to feeling, or at least trying to feel. After years of being taught to drop your hands, I present to you a radical alternative. I hope you enjoy the video.
