It is so simple when you distill the golf swing to its most basic elements – the proper setup combined with the “perfect pivot” action that Ben Hogan used for his own swing.
Those two basic elements are the Alpha & Omega of the optimal golf swing. In fact, I can’t think of anything that would cause a problem in the swing that wouldn’t be solved by the grasping of these two elements.
I got a request from a Wax Nation reader to talk about Moe Norman’s so-called “Master Move,” which he explains, albeit in a tortured way, at the beginning of the video clip below.
He calls it his “vertical drop and horizontal tug,” and while the first part of that description is very, very correct, I would not suggest paying any attention to the second part about “horizontal tug.”

The name of the game with the golf swing is consistency. It doesn’t matter how far you can hit a ball, nor even how accurately you can hit a ball, if you can’t do it consistency.
In golf, you score when you put the ball where you want it for the next shot, more or less – and when you don’t put that ball where you want it, bad things are likely to happen – or at least things will happen that aren’t optimal.
