  Quite honestly, I think you have a great swing. I don't suggest fitting into any player's mold. You have a fluid and smooth swing. As long as you feel the dynamics through the swing, keep doing what you're doing. Like Arnold says, swing your swing. It really looks good.
I love using the magnetic pointer when demonstrating this aspect. I would like to add though, when the ball is in an uneven lie, changing the lie angle to what we feel is normal to us, will render the sole of the club uneven with the hitting surface. When the ball is below the feet and the club is adjusted to a flatter angle to correct the alignment, the heel of the club will contact the ground and the to will not. On the other side, where the ball is above the feet and...
I have to stop and realize that I'm being drawn into childish confrontation. I was wrong to allow myself to react in such a manner. I will take the first step and apologize for my words. As a professional, I should have more control. I will kindly bow out of this conversation not as a loser but as a mature person. We have our different opinions and that's ok. All of the greats of the game have critics as well. So with that. I hope that my apology is...
Perhaps what we should is meet on the course, lay a little money on it and don't forget the Trackman, and we can see who walks away with a pocket full of money. This is why I stopped corresponding on sandtrap because of immature clowns like you. Then after I kick your a.. on the course, I just kick you a.. You're obviously a punk that hides on the computer.      Christopher Warner Master Teaching Professional Golf Teachers Academy of America PGA, USGTF, NRPGI,...

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Sounds like you passed your math class. For some reason, you feel the need to go far beyond what the average golfers even understands or for that matter, even cares about. You're taking things out of context and nit - picking. Nobody says to cultivate after striking the ball. Nobody wants to get a protractor out when on the range or the course. I'm trying to keep it in laymen's terms and you're trying to get scientific. We're...
The divot has absolutely nothing to do with compressing the ball at all. However, the divot is merely a result of compressing the ball at any level. The clubhead is designed to strike (DOWN) onto the ball and a divot is the result of the point beyond the ball strike. Look at pretty much any tour player's impact. You'll see a huge chunk of earth fly out. That's no accident I assure you. They look like they're swinging at a moderate speed and not a lot of effort but the ball...
Festivus. You brought up a great point. The discription of TOO TIGHT is a matter of opinion. Advanced players do swing at higher swing speeds and tend to grip the club tighter as well. I am guilty of such. The difference is, I grip with the correct fingers, which still allows me great fluidity in the hands. I really like Ben Hogan's discription in so far as the mechanical aspect. The 3 - 2 fingers used. Quite honestly, I would almost cut the bird in half but again, it's...
NewbiGolfer77,   To answer the question about a tacky grip, absolutely yes. The design of the club is with a tapered end which is designed to actually keep the club from slipping from our hands. However, we don't always instinctively trust that and especially with aggressive players, we tend to really grip down on the club affording us the feeling of control. With a tacky grip, our senses are more keen and we feel the connection through touch. This builds confidense in...
I really like this video. It clearly demonstrates the proper impact position of the hands as well as the involvement of the hip rotation. I have my students do partial swings with a 7 or 8 iron in this fashion. first to remove the feeling that they have to maximize the clubs length, and second to acquire the feeling of impact. Hands are ahead of the ball at impact, which incourages a downward strike onto the ball, thus compressing the ball and controlling its flight....
