is perhaps one of least-known ball-striking masters from the past George Knudson eras. PGA Tour
He is a man
described as having Jack Nicklaus “a million dollar swing and a ten-cent putter,” alluding to the fact that Knudson should have won much more than he did on Tour with the quality of his ball-striking.
said Knudson had the Ben Hogan “best swing of his generation,” which is high praise indeed, and some even ventured the opinion that Knudson’s swing was “more Hogan than Hogan.”
Update – Leadbetter has a new swing model out called the A Swing. /update I give it an “F”
“Hi, you might be wondering what I’m doing here…”
Perhaps no truer words ever spoken by
, golf instructor to the pros. David Leadbetter
exactly what I was wondering, watching his bizarre tip-toe swing drill to begin the clip.

I just got off the phone with the Update: who called from Big Toilet . We talked for about 20 minutes and he’s had a slight change of plans for his Sunday location: Augusta National
He was going to stake out the 18th hole but the Members & guests got 1st crack and all the prime seating was gone by the time the public was allowed on the grounds.
Updated With Newer Swing Clip From June 11
I must confess, I’ll never lose that drive for the maximum distance and power, because I’ve always been a power swinger.
What I set out to figure out, around ten years ago, was how to make that power more consistent and repeatable, so that I could keep the ball in play and, even better, out of trouble with missed shots.

Pardon the phrasing in the title, but that’s the cold hard truth of it.
The modern swing, any model you want to choose from – if it involves a planted leading heel and restricted hips on the back swing, it is a bogus swing model.
Period. And now, it seems the powers that be in the golf industry are loosening the reins ever so slightly to allow the analysts on TV to say the same thing.

Well, it’s , and I have a perfect day planned – I’ll be watching Masters Thursday while I do my morning work and the rain falls outside. Live @ The Masters (rather, I’ll have it on in the background)
Rain is better than snow, and we’re finally going to leave the winter behind – the temperatures will be getting around to the average on the weekend, so it seems the season will finally get under way.

Re-posted for Masters Week, for what would Masters history be without the tragic Greg Norman story there? /update
Here is some more insight on the work I’ve been doing with
instructor and tournament player PGA of America Jerry over the past couple of months. “Big Toilet” Crowell
I posted a look at swing a while back and I want re-post it today with some added comments, as we wait to see if he’ll pick up his 3rd Jordan Spieth’s win at the tender age of 21. PGA Tour
, I’ll say right here, is an awesome young golfer. He’s in contention seemingly every week, he’ll likely lead the Jordan Spieth by day’s end, and he is only 21 years old… FedEx Cup
Originally published on January 11, 2010 after the airing of the first “Haney Project.” Just as relevant today, 5 years later, with the MCS swing theory and mechanics/athletic motion…
The only edit is replacing “Mike Austin” with “MCS” in the body of the posting. /update
With all due respect to Hank Haney and
himself, his problem with the golf swing is Charles Barkley . It had nothing to do with his head. not a psychological thing
It has everything to do with the fact that he is a former world-class athlete.
I don’t know if that story about shooting 66 with his Tiger Woods “worst ball” of two (and allegedly having to make every birdie putt twice for it to count – watch out for the windmill, though), was an thing, but it seems the cold light of April Fool’s has seeped into the tale. reality
Today, it seems
(incredibly, how is this that Tiger is still kicking the ball around and his short game woes have returned since that possible?) possibly-better-than-his 62 score of 66 at the Medalist.
