If you watched the PGA Tour’s Quicken Loans National, you will have noticed Franceso Molinari (thanks to Mark for the heads-up) , who won going away (8 shot margin).
Molinari, who measures a whopping 5’8″ in height (172 cm), put on a driving clinic and guess what?
He was swinging with the Classic Golf Swing method of allowing the leading heel to lift on the back swing, thereby creating a much freer hip action than the Modern Golf Swing’s restricted turn method.
Now, how does a 5’8″ player average 300 yards off the tee, with his ball speed in the mid-to-high 170’s mph and club speed approaching 120 mph?
Simply, he’s getting the power from the proper method of producing power – with the hips and legs instead of trying to torque the midsection and turn the shoulders against restricted hips.
Note: He exceeded his driving numbers for the season, popping it 313 yards on average for the weekend and also hit nearly 78% fairways for 4 rounds:
That is a devastating combo…

You will find a bunch of swings in the following clip where you can see his lifting heel and free hip action:
So you can add yet another player to the growing list of 2017-18 season winners who are swinging in the Classic method, and as I said after Patrick Reed won the Masters – the Classic Golf Swing is making a return to professional golf.
For some strange reason however, you don’t hear the industry talking about it.
