Show Us your "Opposite" Swing!

post #1 of 80
Thread Starter 

For this thread post your "opposite" swing, so if you're a righty, post a swing of yourself lefty. Try to swing as fast as you would normally from your usual side.

 

Here's Erik and I swinging lefty.  Might be tough to see in high speed but Erik is swinging at a pretty good speed here.  I'm a bit slower f3_laugh.gif  If you don't have a lefty or righty club, just flip a wedge over like Erik and I are doing here.

I wish my normal swing was that good! c4_mad.gif

I'll film one at my next range session if I remember. I won't try it in the basement as I'd probably break a couple lamps and put a hole in the drywall if I tried :-P

Conspiracy!!!  It looks to me like it say "TIXE" over that door in the background.  Why would that be???  ;)  I'm suspicious that you guys borrowed somebody's left handed wedge, flipped it over, hit it right handed, then flipped the video over. b2_tongue.gif

 

Obviously, I'm just kidding, as I am jealous of how good your "opposite" swings are (mostly Erik's - no offense Mike!).  Can't wait to film myself next time at the range and post it here. :)  This thread is going to be mostly hilarious!

I just tried a practice swing in my basement, took me about 7 minutes to figure out how to grip the club LOL. Had to go back and forth a few times to get it remotely like a proper overlap. I'll definitely post one from my next range session. Can't be much worse than my regular swingb2_tongue.gif

Lol. This is going to be an awesome thread. I hope lots of peeps participate. I'll try to upload one in the next few days, if it doesn't stop raining I'll just do one inside.

OK. It was almost dark when I tried it but there's enough light to see enough to laugh at. a3_biggrin.gif

Driver LH!  You win! c2_beer.gif

 

I'm afraid I will shank it and kill someone if I try this at the range.

Lol. Yeah me too, scared I'll hit it about 18" fat and snap the sucker in half. The fact that it's upside down does not inspire confidence. b2_tongue.gif

Yeah no offense taken, Erik's lefty swing is really good, seriously think he should get a lefty set and see what he can do.

Doesn't look nearly as goofy as it felt ...

 

 

And perhaps I need to work a little bit on my balance ...

 

 

And if the video is too shaky, it's cuz the wife was laughing at me while filming. :)

I thought that swing wasn't half bad — and then I saw where the ball went.

It's also done at about 21 MPH. I guess I'm proud of the fact that my swings are done with SPEED. Dave's… not so much. a3_biggrin.gif

 

Anyway, c'mon guys, let's get some more updates! Where are your swings?!?! :)

I was gonna record one yesterday but my camera battery died. I tried a few just for kicks and man was that ugly LOL. I'll record one at my next range session for sure.
