L2L is a 9:00 to 3:00 swing I believe. (I think that would be A3 to A9???)

E2E is Jack Kuykendalls latest golf swing. A video can be seen of a version by Chris White in Adelaide Au.http://www.easyswing.com.au/coaching

Give these guys a hockey stick and maybe they won't look so awkward.

I love the fact that he has talk radio blaring in the background, priceless!

My bad. I have this confused with another totally righteous vid.

Hahaha no worries. This guy is really excited about the "Easy Swing."

 

I just have a hard time believing these balls would have flown 180 yards with a high trajectory. I have an even harder time believing that it "drifted down to the right with a powerful draw" (3:28). Especially because he is right handed. Anyway, I would encourage anyone who views this video to have a laugh and erase it from your memory immediately.

That's awesome, especially the moondance. BUT. Dougie has got the basics of the LPG swing down pretty well. Long thumb, planted rear foot, reach to the ball, separated hands, thick grip, wide stance, plus a few other good LPG things. There's a couple of things he doesn't do. Not enough front arm bend. I've noticed if I can get past 90 degrees and more the better. Plus keeping the back to the target for as long as possible.

Yup, he's the head pro at www.talegagolfclub.com where I do all my practice. One of my friends just started taking lessons from him so I'm gonna have to ask him how it's going.

I'm guilty as well. Just did further research into the link provided above. I don't really have anything to say about MGS. So, I will move on. I would encourage anyone who has some success with this method to please share. This thread seems to consist of a lot of speculation, good and bad.

I disagree. Even if you're exaggerating I disagree. You also continue to fail to recognize that in the "no wrist cock/hinge" MGS swing demonstrated by the man in the video, he cocks and hinges his wrists a LOT.

The benefits of doing so (and the complementary things) are worth it if you want to hit the ball out of your shadow, which is why the MGS demonstrator does it even though he says he doesn't.

 

You're a wrist hater, but you clearly don't know what your wrists are really doing.

I think one of the first questions a golf teacher should ask is," how much time are you going to commit to this?" and if the answer is once a week and half a dozen games a year then the coach should say. Ya know, maybe we should try MGS. The likelyhood is that the swing would be easier to learn, easier to remember, easier to maintain and possibly result in a game that's more enjoyable.

 

We teach a lot of low single digit players who play once a week and practice once or twice a month.

The "traditional" swing is not "the only swing" because it's not just ONE swing.

Sorry, I think we may be at crossed purposes, I'm pretty sure Mrs. Kanwar says some wrist cock is OK but not to make it extreme

 

And the guy on the video isn't a demonsrator, he's a guy who's been using the swing and is convinced that the important thing about MGS is the setup. So the video is about the setup. It's not about whether his wrist is cocked(which Mrs. Kanwar says is OK, just not too much) or not,  it's about, as the guy says in the video"the meat and potatoes" of the swing is in the setup

 

That's pretty much it.

 

So he swings one with no wrist cock, and about half a swing and gets 128 mph......then he swings a bit longer with a bit of wrist cock, again not too much ,and makes 140......good, this is still MGS as he says, .......then he has some full swings with full on lag, big shoulder turn etc etc and gets 150. Thats it.

 

Anyway, Iacas you say the only way to hit it out of my shadow is to use my wrists. Front 9 today my drives were 240 meters, 200(into the scrub!!), 260(drove to 15 meters of the front of the green) then 287 meters(wind assisted, good bounce).  So my front wrist in these swings is as firm as I can make it without losing the ability to hinge at the elbow.
