Hi all, I've been searching my memory and my own experiences and the internet for the golf quotes about swing that are the best ever, I've come up with the following two, what are yours? I think Jack Nicklaus said these but various others including Ben Hogan have said similar things over the years...

"Swing from the ground up"

"Lead with the lower body"

Two by David Feherty describing Jim Furyk’s swing...

“It looks like a one-armed man trying to wrestle a snake in a phone booth.”

“It looks like an octopus falling out of a tree.”

:-D

What I find amazing about Jim's swing is how upright he is at the top, so this has got to be the best example of proof of swinging on multiple planes I've ever seen

I'd also say he has more lag than a cowboy's lasso at a drunken rodeo, he even does a lasso move at the top

After Wolff's golf coach said it on Driven, "His swing is so repeatable."  Now every forum golf pro keeps saying that about him. Oh, that swing is so repeatable.  I got news for you, every PGA pro's swing is very repeatable.

With just a little preparation, you can have the nicest-looking swing on the course.  A few minutes spent in front of a mirror in the locker room pays big dividends on the first tee.

I think it’s the point of to what level of detail is repeating or repeatable. My swing is repeatable. It’s awful and repeatable and that’s my problem. Like Mike says ‘change the dang picture.’ And that’s not easy. 

My swing is just as repeatable as Wolff’s yet the huge difference in that his impact is repeated at a much better level of quality and consistency. 

This might just be incoherent rambling but I guess I’m trying to say that calling a tour player’s swing ‘repeatable’ is hardly anything unique. There's a lot more aspects of Wolff’s swing worth noting than it being repeatable.

On that swing plane thing these are great videos, they prove what I found today in my own swing, no swing is great the player is great in this game, not the swing although getting back on plane is a must right?

I would say that a negative or tentative swing comes from not swinging your own swing and to me that is a bad attitude?

After spewing all kinds of jargon about my swing and where I think I needed help, my instructor just said, "Forget all that.  Just rear back and hit the sumbitch."

"That is a great shot with that swing". Not sure who said it, but I think he was famous.
