I have been interested in the Stack and Tilt fundamentals for a few years, bought the Stack and Tilt book several months ago and also have the CD's which were bought around 2 years ago. I have used a more convention type swing since starting to play and I generally shifted away from the ball a little in the backswing, not a sway necessarily bur more of a shift, but maybe some sway got in there too. . As I got older it seemed like this became a more difficult way to swing. I tried the Stack and Tilt briefly a few years ago, and didn't really have a very good understanding of it,, and went back to the old swing until after getting Sean Foley's CD;s and seeing some of his online videos. It seemed pretty clear that Foley shares some Stack and Tilt fundamentals,. I have been using, or trying to use the Stack and Tilt type motion as best i can since around April of this year. Over all it is working better than expected at this stage. Was able to break 80 on some occasions already with this (handicap is about 7.8 right now, which is about what it was before taking up a Stack and Tilt type swing). I hadn't been able to hit a draw with the more conventional swing for at least 5 years but since keeping more weight on the front foot I am now hitting quite a few draw type shots, and they are starting to get a little better than they were a few months ago, even a sweeper once in awhile now. It didn't take long at all for draws to show up with this type of swing and man that felt good after seeing a lot of weak push fades!! .. The driver accuracy has actually improved too, which has been a nice surprise, and the driver was always somewhat of a struggle with the more conventional two plane type swing with the tendency to push. Also noticing that the contact with the irons on the better shots has been a little higher on the face now than before. Seeing some really nice things going on with this type of swing.
Having some trouble with consistency with this type of swing one would probably expect. The misses are some pushes, and also some hooks and pull hooks. There are some really good ideas on fixes in these Stack and Tilt threads, from folks who understand this swing pretty well probably, and will be doing some reading on those. I am VERY pleased with the progress with this swing so far. I struggled for 5 or 6 years or more trying to learn to hit a draw again with the moire conventional swing and was about 99% unsuccessful with it, and to be able to start doing it almost straight away with a new swing was very much appreciated. Now comes the part or trying to become more consistent by improving the misses.
