I would like to show you all the driver swing of one Jack Nicklaus from the 1963 match against Sam Snead.
These are the only two golf swings from the PGA Tour that you should be looking at to begin with, in my humble opinion, if you want a golf swing that will give you everything from speed, distance, accuracy and consistency.
It’s not a huge surprise to hear that the Mad Scientist of golf has completely unraveled, but it is news to me.
When I mused in yesterday’s posting that BDC was going backwards in his quest for the swing he wants (the “perfect swing?”), it was simply due to observing him swinging in a way that I was when I had only had two seasons of swing research under my belt.
One of the reasons I was able to drive a golf ball 350 yards and up back in my late 30s and early 40s even while swinging with too much leading arm (left-dominant) was because I knew where impact was.
I may have been guilty of trying to pull the club through impact with the leading arm while still trying to hit the ball with my right hand – when I didn’t do it perfectly, I would smash the ball 350 yards, but when I did do it perfectly, I snap-hooked the ball off the planet or sliced it over 2 fairways.
