"The LAWs of the Golf Swing" by Adams, Suttie, and Tomasi - Page 2

post #19 of 23

after struggling with three swing modifications for over a month at golftec (I have also been working on other drills - but just started on addressing my movement), my coach gave me a print out of the LAW's and said I am a width player.  We made some modifications to my form based upon this and I immediately began to feel much more comfortable again.  

 

Unfortunately this book is out of print/not available new from Amazon.  Any other websites that are recommended until I find a used copy?

 

Also, what players on tour today are width?  Any videos (golftec has one of Craig Stadler) I can reference

I believe the book says Tom Lehman is also a width player. I just went to this method and using info for the w player I have been striping the ball. Tried all the rest but being based on body type, this method just made a ton of sense.

Particularly the thought that many of not most pros have some combination of these swing patterns.  I am 66, have a 10 handicap from the blues at my club, am not particularly long off the tee (240+ or -), but I have noticed over the years of playing (46 yrs), that as I have experimented with the different teachings (and lessons), the primary variables for me seem to be; a. the turn (I am a width player at 5'10 and 200+ pounds), and a loose (untense) body/arm motion.  This last especially seems to bridge the gap of the various swing types.  Meaning, I can get the plane, weight shift, hand cock, etc., right and try to hit it with my supposed power source (physical strength of which at my age I do not have a lot of, but seem to do better relying on my flexibility (which is pretty good at my age due to ongoing exercises).  The difference seems to be in accuracy.  I am more accurate using the "hitting" actions but the distance is better (consistently) using the flexibility/relaxed body/swing for the rhythm mode.  It's hard to know what to think or believe having been around as long as I have, gained the weight over the years I have, taken as many lessons as I have, etc.  I think I'll focus on the short game, my putting stinks!

I read this book and refer to it often. I think its excellent. I am using the ARC method with long arms/legs and flexible. I bought this book after following a flat swing path, which was disastrous for my game and went from a 16 HCP to 8 in about 2 years fate reading this book. 

 

The ARC swing is somewhat un-intuitive and its very much from the ground up (feet, legs hips, then shoulds/arms) and takes a good amount of practice. The hip movement is a little tricky as well, for me at least. You need to practice and play often. I fight the tendency to lead with the upper half of my body.

 

 

I think this book makes alot of sense if you think about how leverage and path work and relate to given set of conditions (body type)
