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.

    • Played yesterday at SGCC. 36-40-76 -2 birdies and 2 doubles (ugh), one double was a 3-putt
    • I am going to try the TP version of my old club.  It has a 390CC head.  It was only 30 bucks so I figured it couldn't hurt to see if it helps a little on the forgiveness.  I guess the game is just passing me by...I can't see myself using those gigantic drivers.  The thing I noticed is that with the smaller head, that I am more focused on hitting the sweet spot.  With the giant club it just seems like you hit it anywhere on the face.  Am I correct in thinking that a "sweet spot" is not any larger on the bigger heads?  Is it just that on off center hits there is better chance of hitting it straight?  
    • I'll keep this on the short side because some random person's Member Swing thread isn't really the place for this kind of discussion… By most I'll clarify: the vast, vast majority. I'm not talking about 53% here. That doesn't mean you were doing it right or most efficiently. You may very well have been capable of making the change - and making it more quickly - with a ball if you'd done it differently. Sounds slow. Not for everyone, but for a good chunk of people. That's not what I advocate in the above linked post, either. Generally speaking, here's what I see: You tell people to fix the move without a golf ball. They work and work and film and record, and eventually, they've got a great practice swing. You say "great, now do that with a ball" and they almost immediately and completely revert to their old swing. Simply put, what I recommend to people is: A rehearsal swing or two. Often these too are shorter, slower, simpler swings. A shorter, slower, simpler swing focusing just on the "piece" while hitting a ball. As you become proficient, the swing gets less short, less slow, and closer to the full swing. Practice at the edge of your ability, but do it with a ball. The approach there blends no-ball practice (the first bullet) but immediately ties it to a motion you make with a golf ball. If you're shanking, topping, etc. the ball too much, you're not doing it slowly, "shortly," or simply enough.
    • Shot a 41 in my match play League.  Opponent was giving me 3 strokes.  I won the match 5 to 4. 5 pars 3 bogeys 1 double Good:  Drove 6/7 fairways and the only one that I missed was by about a foot.  Hit some very good approach shots.  I had 4 birdie putts ranging from 6-25 feet.  Alas, i made none. Bad: Other than duffing 2 shots on the first hole (an easy par 5) i played pretty solid.    
    • This entirely depends on where you play. I play courses that usually have three groups and a couple of singles out per side, and I would say no, but then I get to an urban course, like Long. Island, or South Florida, and it's anger management time.  I like to watch my friends's shots, and compliment their successes, I take a couple practice swings if I am in an uneven lie, or whatever, but I am not going to spend time searching for extra balls while walking between shots, or sit and BS at the tee before shooting. For some reason I am always ready to hit first, honors or no, and I just don't get why people take so long there. As long as I can do the things I enjoy, like watching my shots and my friends shots, and take due care taking my shots and putting, I don't feel rushed, but three hours for a foursome means you have four serious golfers. My golfing is more social so that is unlikely to happen. I play with one guy who takes pace seriously, and we do fine.  If we want to pick up the pace of a group, we play best ball. Maybe the conversations on the tee are because that's where everybody gathers together for the next hole and people like to talk. I like to play golf.
