Re: Rickie Fowlers swing...Motteler621 -- you got it as I meant it. Yes, compared to the first mostly rotational swing, lower club pattern emerging out of the 80s into the 90s, the swing started looking much less classical. Today, Fowler and others who do the swing in the Fowler's video look "different" yet again. You sort of have to do a double take when you see a swing like that, but it works for (some of) those who use it. It does not hurt to be young and flexible, and very fit. I tried to swing and play that way myself for a few years, but as age keeps moving forward, I am no longer able to do it and the yards of distance I have lost are proof. Now I just try to get the weight shift and turn going in balance. Please remember, I make no special claim of golf swing knowledge, but have been around a long time observing fine golf swings. So much has evolved. The way I was first taught to hit a golf ball would make all of you laugh today.
Just as a side bar, one of the reasons I like SnT is most everything is very well defined and expressed, where many other ways to hit the golf ball are not nearly as easily discussed (at least for me.) The inside hands Fowler uses are in harmony with SnT, even it other things are different. It is as if many very good elements of the golf swing are compacted into a single method by Plummer and Bennett. So while I might see three or four very different swings that hit good shots, there are some key things you can find in common regardless of the swing type. I was going to say, this is not rocket science, but upon reflection, the golf swing might be just as complex.
