Yeah interesting stuff. Looks like he's experimenting with float loading it on the backswing. Longest I've ever seen his swing. He comments that it's tough to do because of so many moving pieces, or something along those lines.

 

This video was shot in '94 so it was a year after he started advocating that the right knee lose some flex on the backswing.

Only one swing here that Tiger said the player owned.The only other player in that category according to Tiger is Hogan.

Compilation of swings already on YouTube with some others most of you haven't seen. Best Mac swing ever is at :52 out of the bunker.

 

Some decent views with him in the pink shirt. In that segment he's experimenting with some stuff but there's a few normal swings in there. Lots of speed with all these swings.

OK, so does Mac O'Grady = Phil McGleno or not ?!?    Seems like a big secret (or maybe an inside joke that I'm not privy to)  ...

If you flip his lefty swing, does it look like his righty swing? Will have to try this out myself.

Lefty swings on the left. 

 

Very similar. Pivot is a little flatter, doesn't "re-center" himself as much with the lefty swing. More bend in the lead arm with the lefty swing.

 

Camera angles aren't the same, camera is slightly behind Mac on the right and his body was aimed more left at address.

 

Here's similar angles.

I worked at the 1986 PGA Championship at Cherry Hills.  In a practice round he was playing with Charles.  We were watching this group all day.  On a hole late in the round Mac hit it to a couple of feet.  Someone in the crowd yelled, "Let's see you do that left handed."  He turns to Charles, borrows a club and proceeds to hit it closer to the pin.  The crowd erupted.  One of the first true memories of me being in awe on the golf course.

 

I was a standard bearer for all 4 days.  Great experience for my 18 year old self.

Al Geiberger and Mac shadowing.

Mike, a couples of things about Mac's swing on the video: 1. His stands got wider 2. Most of Mac's swings, he doesn't slide hips much but more rotational and his shoulders fully turned as always at the finish. 

 

And looking at P7.5 where arms soft but not fully extended tells me pivot lead the arms not vice versa. What's your thoughts?

Which swings? With Geiberger? 

 

Mac is always making little adjustments with his set-up.

Yes he'll need more rotation to keep the club and hands swinging left. His hips still transfer at least 4 inches but he'll also let his upper center move forward as well. Might make it look like he's "sliding" less.

Arms look pretty extended to me. He can't fully extend his right arm anymore, he broke it about 10 years ago. He's swinging his arms pretty fast, only way you can get your arms "past" your body like this.
