The irony of Ben Hogan’s pivot action is that it is a virtually perfect pivot action if you’re looking to use the hips and legs to power the golf swing and provide the shoulder turn requisite to generate leverage.
Why is that ironic?
Because, for several reasons completely unrelated to his pivot action.
It’s either the mid-winter doldrums or I’ve reached the end of the line looking at the mechanics of the for-now named Post-Modern swing model.
Also, I really went at it speed work-wise yesterday and just about every back and rib muscle is protesting, so I’m taking another look at the mechanics of what I call the traditional long-drive swing motion.
