Update on “Lil Rory” – Amazing

jacks releaseSo I featured on the blog yesterday, one of Jerry “BT” Crowell’s newer swing students (been about 3 weeks), and whom Jerry says is making daily progress on his changes.

I was going to post some new swings of Jerry’s with iron from yesterday, but hold the phone…

Apparently, Jack can take instruction and implement changes, virtually on the spot.

And this is how easy it should be, provide one has the aptitude to learn and change, and provided one listens to and grasps the concepts of what is required to change.

I was stunned when BT sent me a clip last evening.

As I couldn’t see the face, I thought, “OK, another one of BT’s young proteges, let’s see what’s going on here…”

I had no idea it was Jack, as just hours before, I’d been looking at a completely different pivot action.

Jack “Lil Rory” Swings “Floating Heel” MCS


“What a minute,” I said. “Was that Jack?!?”


“Holy cow…”

I had mentioned to Jerry that the slight “harpoon drop” from the top came from the planted-heel back swing pivot, and BT agreed.

It had only been 3 weeks since he’d begun working with Jack, and he just hadn’t gotten to that “floating heel” adjustment part yet.

“I’ll talk to him about it today,” he said.

Hours later, he sent the swing clip.

And again, look at this release action!

Now, I was extremely gratified for more than the reason of the quick change – swinging with that type of speed and effort from a planted-heel and rubber-banded position at the top, while possible for a youngster of Jack’s age, would have eventually caught up to him.

Remember that my nickname for him is “Lil Rory.”

That’s both an awesome compliment to Jack’s abilities, but also a warning to everyone out there – Rory hurt his back at 20, with his swing action, and required rehab, which should be unthinkable for someone that age.

Even in your early 20’s, your youthful flexibility wanes, and it’s only a matter of time before injury occurs, if you’re not swinging with mechanical-correctness.

Ask Michelle Wie, the case study of how to completely destroy a young, supple and athletic body in your mid-20’s…

So, getting young Jack on the floating heel train right now, will save him a lot of pain and injury/rebab when his Gumby-like flexibility lessens as he gets older and stronger.

Second, the change to the floating heel leaves Jack with one more change to make in his swing that I’d like to see sooner than later, and we’ll discuss it in January.

But I’ll say it right now, with no hyperbole – we could be looking at another “Jack” who changes the way golf is looked at… starting with the swing itself…

More to come!

    We touched on the “One more thing” yesterday. Just worked on it for a few swings then left it alone. He could do it……but it will come more and more as he pivots like he is now.

      No worries, no rush – I have no concerns with you watching over him, BT. I can’t think of a better pro to help shepherd him to junior greatness and beyond.

      Just remember these days, when you’re giving him strokes! 😉

    Just think, in 3 weeks I will have both of you watching over me. I am coming after Lil Rory.

    I get the Wax shirts today. I will put them on instagram. I hope BT’s had enough room for the letters 😉

    Funny you should mention Michell Wie, DJ..She apparently is hitting the golf instruction circuit – Wie along with anouther pro were on Golf Channel or aomewhere talking about helping you to improve your game…Did anyone else see this advertisement?

    And as for this protoege of BT’s…Wow…!! Love the move down from the inside..MONEY!
