I'm a bit bored this morning so I watched. My favorite part was around 6:10 where he talks about how you want to strike the golf ball above the equator. Then at 9:00 or so he talks about how even the top pros have problems with the conventional grip all the time.

Maybe he'll join TST. :)

I can't trust anyone with an office and computer desktop that messy.

I like his analogies: draw bridges, ninjas, etc.

It's interesting how he transposes some of the explanation for folks who are left handed. As if left handed people haven't figured out that most instruction in life is in right handed context. That and the fact that the camera is pretty aggressively moving with him. This thing a joke?

Thanks for the replys.  On 18 at my home course I hit a tree with my drive and had 200 yards to the

pin.  I took out my trusty 3 iron and played the ball back in my stance and hit the top center of the ball.  The ball was about 5 feet off the ground all the way to the green but went 25 yards over the green.  The Moongoose swing must me more like a low punch shot.  I think we have to find more ways for golfer's to play better, faster because the younger generation is not taking up this wonderful game.

I haven't had time to practice the Moongoose swing but will give it a try when the rain stops.

No you didn't. If you had the ball would have been driven down into the ground. It may be a good feel or thought but it's not reality.

LOL, I love the juxtaposition of some guy meditating, ruminating, and preaching in pseudo-zen simplicity while also sitting in front of piles of junk and trash that some of which has probably been there since the early 1980s.

The end of the video disappointed me though. I kept waiting for his mom to yell from off-screen, "Hey! I told you to pick up your goddamn skateboard from the living room! Are you trying to kill me??" And then him responding angrily with, "SHUT UP, MOM!!! MAKE ME A ****ING HOT POCKET!!!!"

On a positive note, if the Golf Channel and the TV series Hoarders ever decide to team up for a new reality show, I think they found their guy.

Sorry for the double post, but I just had a stroke of genius... if you combined the Mongoose swing and the LPG swing, would the universe collapse in on itself? Would a black hole open? What would happen if you did that and used the hammer driver at the same time ?

This begs further study....

The experiment was a success but as an unfortunate side effect, I was turned into Jeff Goldblum's character from the Fly.

On the bright side, Geena Davis.

No wait, I take that back. Geena Davis was never really all that.

    • Where is the hole in your game?  Do you struggle close to the green?  Then look at lob wedge.  If you find yourself always needing a 200 yard club then go for a wood or driving iron. I would suggest since you already mentioned you don't hit your hybrid so well replacing it as well.  I don't hit hybrids myself, but there are many different types of hybrids from fat sole driving irons to short shaft woods.  A true hybrid will go a lot farther than an iron of the same loft making a 5 hybrid get into you 3 iron range.  If you go this route I would suggest a 2 and 4 hybrid to cover the gap between driver and irons. My personal preference is toward big fairway woods.  Most people will carry at least a 3 wood.  Lots of pros are using a strong 3 wood, whether it is called a 2 wood, 3+, or mini driver, these guys are using 11 to 14 degree woods with lots of club head speed to get 300 yards out of their fairway wood.  But with slower swings that most amateurs have they should be using a 12 to 14 degree driver meaning they should be using more loft on their fairway wood as well.  To go this route you might want to look at a 4 wood and 7 wood setup.  A 7 wood should be around the same yardage as a 3 hybrid. One last suggestion.  Find a 2nd hand store and look at some older model clubs.  You might just run across a 1 iron for less than $10.  For that price you could grab a hand full of long irons, hybrids, and woods that you can then hit the driving range and find what works for you.  
    • So IMO, if there are easier options to hit that can produce similar results, why play blades?  I had a set of Titleist 710 Cavity Backs and sold them for blades. Simply because they looked cool, and "all good golfers play blades". Well, I wasnt as good a ball striker that I thought I was. I now play AP2's and my handicap is as low as its ever been. For guys like Jordan Spieth and Luke Donald in your example, if they hit it pure most of the time, why risk that 1% where you dont pure it and the blade iron leaves you 15 yards short of your target and in a creek/hazard.  The technology in irons today is incredible for hitting high shots while still being able to work the ball plenty. Im not knocking anyone who plays blades, because that is impressive. It all comes down to preference.

    • Exactly, it comes up a lot in some of those "senior" golf tip sections on TV and in Magazines. We don't have those twist-o-flex spines anymore like we did in our 20's, so a little head start helps. But I think ANYONE can use it to help rotation. We may THINK we get around a lot, but sadly if you saw yourself on video... not so much. Then I wouldn't do it with the long irons. :^)  But seriously, folks... I run into this as well and it's my hands... I will tend to flip and steer the club trying to get the perfect ball flight. Hands get ahead and it's pulled or hooked. REALLY trying to keep my head behind the ball and WATCH the club hit the ball helps a bit, though. Good Luck.
