Yes, if you watched the CBS broadcast from the PGA Tour’s 2015 Quicken Loans National event yesterday, you would have seen Peter Kostis using MCS terminology describing the hybrid swing mechanics (“pushing/throwing” combined with “pulling”).
That picture above, I posted to the DJ Watts Golf blog back in August of 2011… that’s four years ago…
I have been critical of some of Peter Kostis’ analyses in the past, but this one is virtually what I would say in the same instance. I’d have my line or lines in a different place, but I can’t find anything in this clip to which to object.
Peter Kostis Talks “Push & Pull” and “Throw”
The two more common types are the “throwing” or right-dominant swing, we know…
… and the hybrid swing which most people use instinctively, to both “pull” and “throw” or “push.”
The problem is that most people don’t know why you need a floating heel to use the “pull” and “hybrid” swings, and you don’t need much heel float if any at all (depending on your own physical specs) to use the “throw” model.
