As pertains to DJ’s Watering Hole – I spent a couple of hours at the range today hitting various shots with various clubs for video, and I’ll be posting some of this material during the next few days.
I have some more irons swings (7 and 5), with both “full” and “cut-off” swings. By “cut-off,” I mean you’ll notice a much shorter, abbreviated follow-through with some swings, but get this – the ball goes just as far (or just about) on those swings.

It had already begun unofficially, as I stated in yesterday’s posting, when I was doing some pivot and club path work earlier in the week.
Jack Nicklaus had one of the best swings, technically, mechanically, ever seen on the PGA Tour. I mean, come on – how do you win 18 majors and over 70 Tour events during the golden age of golf’s classic swingers, without that?

I mentioned a little while back that I was going to do the same thing with Jack Nicklaus’ swing that I had done with Ben Hogan’s in the Wax Golf Ben Hogan Project.
I was going to look at what was really going on as opposed to what other said was going on.
As you know by now, my looking into Ben Hogan’s pivot mechanics was the key to developing the “floating pivot” in the MCS “Ultimate Leverage” swing model.

I’m speaking about Jamie Sadlowski, of course.
While he only won two Remax World Long Drive Championships, he did it while barely out of his teens, and with a frame that was 5’10” and 168 lbs…
I think the last time I was 168 lbs was in the 11th or 12th grade… and I was already 6′ tall, so even in the 11th grade, I would have been “bigger” than Jamie was when he won those titles in ’08 and ’09. Continue reading What Does The Greatest Long Driver Ever Know That You Don’t?
After making some “longer” swings yesterday while shooting some video for DJ’s Watering Hole, I looked at the video evidence and I am making a prediction – my long drive #’s are about to take off.
I’ve made reference to some of the drives I’ve hit on the course while conducting my research (max approx 380y, many between 330-360y), and those drives were likely produced with a negative angle of attack.

There is nothing new under the sun, they say, and it’s no different in golf.
People should stop trying to reinvent the swing – we haven’t changed the way we move or swing, so the proper way to do it has already been demonstrated, and long ago, by the swingers of the classic era.
Namely, Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan, for the purposes of this posting.

I wanted to get some video of my “playing swing” with the sand wedge today and, because it was shot in Hd, you are able to actually see the balls landing on the target green at 110 yards.
It is not obvious, I had to full-screen the video, but you can see my first wedge shot landing about 2 feet right of the pin and bounding dead left past the flatstick off of something hard (approx 00:18).
