The question will invariably arise in the wake of Brandel Chamblee’s book on the Classic Golf Swing and how terrible the Modern Golf Swing is – “OK, so where are the classic golf swingers?”
Well, here’s one – this is a 100% classic swing throwback to the days of old, and it is something to behold in person.
Blake is heading back to his home state of Texas later this month, and he’ll then begin the final preparations for getting his MCS swing into battle shape for the upcoming NCAA college golf season (Division I, sophomore).
He’ll be representing McNeese State, and I’ll be keeping tabs on him, to be sure – I’ll make sure to let Wax Nation know how he’s doing as well.
Blake Elliott Hitting Driver @ Murrietta Golf Range – May 29, 2016
Now, that swing has been changed a little from there, as this was his swing the day before he hit upon his adjustment (his right arm is 2″ longer than his left), and we’re working on a couple of other things as well, but there’s nothing much wrong with the swings above!
This is a driver swing of his from yesterday, as a matter of fact, as we worked on his hip action from the top, and you’ll see that he’s already beginning to get that left foot much more stable into and through impact:
Can’t wait to see how he does on his return to college at summer’s end!
Hard to make predictions at this stage, but if Blake shows any of what he showed me while worked on his swing – all I can say is “sky’s the limit.”
One thing I can predict however – this line from his freshman semester at McNeese State… is going to look a lot different, score-wise:
