Mac O'Grady Swings

I'll start off the collection with a still-photo sequence.

The site will squish it but the full-size one is about 1500 x 1500.

I agree.  I've seen some videos that I can't post as they aren't public domain that are cool.  Hope they land here. :D

Mac is one of the most influential instructors in the game.  List of students included, Seve Ballesteros, Steve Elkington, Vijay Singh, Keith Clearwater, Jody Mudd, Chip Beck, Grant Waite, Mike Bender, Robert Rock, Andy Plummer and Mike Bennet.    Played on the PGA Tour for a number of year, regarded as a tremendous ball striker and a very, eccentric guy.  He keeps his information top secret and kicks anyone out that shares info or that he feels threaten by.  He's done a lot of research with bio mechanics and the inner ear fluids, vestibular system.  How they all relate to the golf swing.  He has swing models based on Sam Snead, Hogan and Billy Casper.

Here's his webpage.

Oh he would love this thread haha  Yeah I have Mac swings that I'm too afraid to post because he knows which swings he sent certain people.

This is not an image flipped around, he hits it just as good left handed as he does right handed.

No he doesn't. He only says that to scare people into not posting stuff. ;)

Mac is really a space alien who feeds on the sun's gamma rays and lives simultaneously in two parallel universes.

OK - he was (is) a real whacko with a temper, a lot of talent, and a helluva beautiful swing. Love the steadiness of his head in those frames - something to emulate.

I love this one and remember it well.  It's from a Golf Digest article on him in the mid-80s or so??  I would have been 12 or 13 at the time, and remember just staring at it, wondering how it's possible that somebody could be that talented.
