Your loss

 

Remind me again.  How many majors did he win?

That's an interesting question. My first guess is that there is no one left alive who could properly teach it. I am not even sure Norman could have taught it. There use to be quite a few imitators out there trying to cash in on his name and swing. My second guess is maybe because Norman's swing/grip required a special lie angle for each club he used.  Very, very upright, with little consistency between each club. Rumor has it Norman adjusted his clubs one at a time, in a garage using 2X4s. My third guess would be that Moe Norman simply owned his own swing. His club grips were larger in diameter that normal clubs too. Another factor was that Norman practiced and/or played all the time from what I have read about him. 10-12 hours a day, 7 days a week. I know the swing works because I have golfed with folks who used what they called the "Natural Golf Swing" which is some what of a a copy of Norman's swing, and grip. They were very consistent golfers score wise, with some shooting near par. Norman made good use of his swing while winning 50+ tournaments during his pro career.
