Here’s A Jack Nicklaus Swing So Close To Optimal

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.

Jack Nicklaus, at times, came so close to the optimal swing action, it’s why he was able to win 18 majors and snag 19 runner-up finishes (that’s 37 Top 2 finishes in majors, something you’ll never see again).
