The Professional Swing Sequence Thread

Recommended Posts

Over the past several months - I've been using Youtube to capture swings at the different alignment/positions.  Instead of keeping them on my notebook - I figured it may help the community if I started to share them?  So here are some that I've created.

Note - if there is a particular Pro - or angle that you would like to see, feel free to let me know.  I'll do my best to create it and post it here in this thread.  And I'd encourage others to share any that they have or come across here as well.  These are great to use when looking at your swing on video - and comparing where you are versus the Pro.

I'll add that in a conversation with Grant Waite this past Spring - he stated that is how he learned his swing.  By doing a frame-by-frame comparison of his swing versus his mentors swing.  So again, this is something that can help you improve your swing if you pay attention to the alignments of the body, club, etc...

Note, if you right click on the images - and open them in a new tab (or window) - you should be able to see the original size.  They are larger than they look in the TST forum.

Good point.  The Tiger photos are all from 2012.

Can't let this thread die. Here comes two role models of how a perfect swing should be executed .

Being a bit ironic, i'm not taking responsibility if anyone try to copy their swings!

Match Kuchar 2010

Jim Furyk(don't know the year, does it matter? )

On a Mac, Pixelmator is a low-cost but reasonably powerful image editor.

Then again, Preview is free and does a little stuff. :)

I wish there was a special suit one could get into and it would slowly take one's body through a specific swing sequence. It would be nice to feel a particular player's swing, and I think golfers would get better faster if they could actually feel the movements. I also wish I'd won that really big Powerball a couple of weeks ago. Oh, and yes - I'd wish for extra wishes if I were given three wishes, man!

I just can't get over the position his body is in at impact.  Growing up playing baseball, there was one thing I learned about good hitters that stuck with me that I think applies to golf as well; no matter how textbook or unorthodox a swing appeared, if you freeze them all at impact, they pretty much look identical.

Jim Furyk is clearly an exception to that rule.

Being a tall guy, 6'5",  I would like to see if you could get some swing sequences of some taller professionals, like Dustin Johnson, Ernie Els, Nick Watney, etc?  Thanks.

Louis Oosthuizen would be a good one, also, if you can. Watching him this week, and his swing is so good looking.

Thanks much!

    • When I am feverish and have the flu or flu like symptoms my concentration level and patience goes as close to zero as possible.  However, a head cold with no muscle aches and I can make it through.  About 20 years back I hurt my right knee over swinging on the range (turned out to be a torn meniscus) but I was determined to play.  I could put very little weight on my right side and my follow through had a step forward like Gary Player.  I played an excellent round (for me) and although I did not crush the ball I stayed in the fairway on almost every shot.  Needless to say I played no golf for the next 8 weeks to let the tear heal. Great round by the way!
    • So just wondering......do ALL sets of tees have slope and Course ratings? Or would you still keep that to a select few tees?
    • Being a member somewhere?  I'd hate that, variety is what makes this game so much more satisfying.  That said, if I have the chance to just get in a quick weekday round, or am stuck at home and suddenly feel like I want to play, I tend to go to one of 5 courses between 20 and 30 minutes away. I've decided on and driven on the same day even as much as 4 hours there and 4 hours back just to get a round in somewhere I'm interested in.
    • There only one course (Cascades, a full-length 9 hole course that is part of Crystal Springs) in my area that has "green" tees which are for juniors, novices, or people that just cannot drive the ball more than 160-170. The LongLeaf system sounds great and I believe it could be done with a minimum of investment but I do not see it happening with the exception of resort courses (which is where the green tees are in my region).  Why?  My guess is that course operators look at it as more on-going maintenance in addition to an initial investment.  I believe it would be worth it by bringing out more golfers while keeping up with the pace of play. 
    • Congrats on a great round, especially when suffering with the flu. I am on day 6 with the flu (diagnosed), and now know that death is probably not a bad thing.  I put down a 40' X 80' yard full of sod by myself. I was spent. Putting it down was not too bad, but I had to carry each piece from the font yard. I was maybe 35 at the time.  I had just sat down to admire my work with my favorite beverage in hand. My phone rang, and it was a good friend calling saying they needed a short stop for their men's soft ball team. I tried every excuse I could muster to not go. His friendship finaly got me to the field, which is when I found it was double header.  Long story short, l played as perfect a two games as one could ask for. No errors. Turned several double plays. Went 10 for 10 batting, with  4 of those going over the LF fence.  Spent the next couple of days in major muscle pain.
