Swing Analysis: Ken Venturi

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

There aren’t very many available swing videos of Venturi, but the ones I present here are some of my all- time favorites, not surprising when you consider that his swing was about the closest to Hogan that you will find. The startling difference in the takeaways of the two iron swings shown here show a conscious swing change that I would love to ask Venturi about.

Just decided to watch this again. I thought I read in a book called ‘The Match’ that Nelson worked with KV for a while and advised him to take the club back straighter so it’s interesting that his later swings had this severe inside takeaway. Anyway I love the other swing. It is just wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

I read that Venturi got injured in a car accident in 1961. And he didn’t win anything for three years after that. I wonder if it had anything to do with his swing change? I certainly preferred the ‘older’ version.
