Classic Principles Sneaking Up On Tour’s Modern Players

If I told you that the percentage of players on the PGA Tour who use the Classic Golf Swing principle of performing a free hip turn by allowing the leading heel to release on the back swing pivot is pretty low, you’d likely agree with me.

Masters Thread Updated – Patrick Reed Brings It Home

(Updated At Bottom With Swing Analysis)

This is likely the best shot Rory McIlroy will have to complete his Grand Slam quest in some time, because how many times will he be 1 shot back of the lead through 2 holes of the Final Round of the Masters?

Brandel Chamblee Gets Sean Foley To Agree W/Classic Swing Principles

DKondo sent me a link to a conversation he caught on the Golf Channel last weekend, and I finally have time to post this.

Swings From Day 1 – Project 2018

I put together a compilation video of some 5 iron and Driver swings from 3 different angles.

It was a pretty basic “warming up for the season” session, just to get the flow and some feel back after the 5 month winter layoff.

Thanks to everyone who is supporting the effort with your Advance Orders, and I will be leaving the window up for a week or two longer.
