A Question For Peter Kostis (And All of Modern Golf)

sam snead jonas blixtFirst we had Brandel Chamblee spilling the truth about the Modern Golf Swing in a rare moment on Golf Channel.

Now, in this swing analysis by Peter Kostis, you’ll hear him talking about the free hip action in Sam Snead’s classic golf swing as excellent.

You’ll also hear him say at the end that swings don’t get any better than Snead’s.

You could say the same thing about Jack Nicklaus, Bryon Nelson or Ben Hogan’s swings from the classic era.

So my question is…

Sam Snead versus Modern Swing Nonsense


If Sam Snead’s swing was so gosh-darned good…

Why aren’t they teaching how to swing like Snead today?

“Nope, That’s NOT It…”

A question that Tiger Woods should be asking himself right about now…

I’d love to hear that answer, without B.S.


Peter Kostis LOVES Jordan Spieth’s Swing


And one other question for Mr. Kostis – considering that everything Jordan Spieth does in the below clip is the opposite of what Snead did, why are you so high on this piece of crap modern swing model?


Wanna learn the MCS methodology and swing like the greats did in the classic era?

You can start with the “Secrets of the MCS”video shorts series or jump right in to the whole thing with the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing” video.

      I wouldn’t go that far – when he actually makes sense, he’s not bad. Problem is, he doesn’t always.

      The modern-golf sucking up he does on the modern swingers is a bad joke however, just kills his credibility.

      It is NEVER a good thing to restrict the hip turn with a full shoulder turn (which is why you won’t see this nonsense in ANY other sport or game that claims to be a sport), and the problems with the modern swing begin and end there.

      BTW, weather’s looking better for So-Cal in a couple of weeks!

    Here’s an Interesting contrast: recently Golf Channel showed a father-son tournament in Florida…famous guys like Trevino, Wadkins, Love, Langer, Nicklaus. I thought sure I’d see some “floating heel” classic swings. To be honest, I wasn’t watching closely (it was mostly background noise)…but NO heels looked very floating (neither fathers nor sons).

    Then, they re-showed the Long Drive championship. I’d already seen it, so I wasn’t watching that very closely either…but every time I looked up, it looked like ALL floating heels. I guess long-drivers haven’t learned the modern swing.

      I think the older classic era players are trying not to rock the corporate boat – don’t forget that Arnold Palmer himself took a lot of money from Callaway and then just happened to fight (on their side) for a non-conforming driver back in the early 00’s – money rules pro golf and those in the game are not as free to speak as Brandel’s outbursts would imply, I’m betting.
