"Rotation is very rotational" is good, but the fact that he does nothing like what he says he does is by far the most important piece.

Awesome thread.. even though I find it more maddening than funny.

Heres a good one . My favorites are 8 and 12.
One of Norman's best moves is turning his shoulders a full 90 degrees without changing his spine angle. Compare his spine position here to the one in frame 1: It hasn't moved. His trick? He allows his head to drift slightly to the right during his backswing. When you try to keep your head still, you're likely to lean your upper body toward the target as you turn in your backswing. The result? A reverse pivot and a slice.

Gotta fight the gag reflex on that one.

Percentage of amateur golfers who slide their hips too far forward on the downswing? Roughly 5%.

The real reason your weight goes from toes to heels? Your hips are closed as they push forward at the start of the downswing (left toes) and the n a bit more open coming through impact (towards the left heel) as they continue to go forward.

Just how do they propose that a person "rotate powerfully around their left foot", without having their wieght over their left foot? Your hips have to slide in order for your weight to get over your left foot. You can't rotate around the left leg when your leg is at the same position it was at address.

Not to mention, most amateurs don't have the problem they describe to begin with, which makes using the words "many amaeteurs" misleading.

Beware of this kind of instruction.  Not one player on tour has a backswing like this.  He literally says at one point, "turn your back to the sky"

When I posted that last night I couldn't figure out which was funnier, the fact that he tells you not to do something that every great golfer does/has done or the fact that he is doing what he says not to. Either way... wow

95% of the people here seem to know more about the golf swing than this guy. No reasons at all for anything he says, just a random string of sentences.

Yeah I like his swing at 3:01 when he gets "tilty"

If by straight flush, he means straight pull hooks... then yes.

That's a good find. I've heard good things about Jeff Ritter, but now I wonder if they're not the say way you "hear good things" about Hank Haney...

I think his only crime here is exaggerating the closing of the face.  He's talking to the amateur who comes over the top and hangs the face open, and he's trying to describe the feeling of swinging the club the other direction (in-to-out), while squaring the face.  It's not so wrong, other than neglecting to mention that if you actually close the face, you're going to get a pull-hook.

The problem is that 95% of the people that hear this advice will:

a) still come over the top and

b) pull the ball even more than they do now

I still maintain that the root cause of 95% of all slices is the path, not the clubface angle.

Go to google and search his name. Then look at the 5th link.
