Looks like you're doing a smell test on your armpits and someone has inserted a driver into the equation ;) I'm not one to be giving advice but is there any physical limitations with the left arm? It looks like it just went straight up, and then up, and up another bit in the backswing. I'm sure the guys with the good advice would need more than a still pic.

@freedrop , we're not here to play games. If you want people to take you seriously, we need to know what the "is" is in "why is this happening?" Why is [U]what[/U] happening?

Because he was talented enough to make it work for him. If your point is that it's possible to hit a golf ball from a lot of different positions at the top I don't know that many people that would argue with you...Even though it would be moronic to aspire to try to do it that way when there are much more simple and more efficient ways.

Because the ball doesn't care what happens other than at impact. That and if you feed an Irishman enough Guinness, you'll see a lot of weird stuff. Some of it might even work.......for him.

QFT.

It breaks precisely none of them.

And he has all 5 Simple Keys®.

So ask a specific question, or attempt to make a specific point, or I'm locking this thread.

iacas.....you are saying Eamonn is following all 5 keys.....it is possible there is more than one way to hit a ball without all 5 keys.

Because your small fragile mind can't comprehend anything required in the golf swing. In short you are SHALLOW, you only see the surface.

Ok, so I don't know squat about Eamon Darcy, but his swing didn't look all that weird to me, minus the elbow position at the top. Can anyone enlighten me?

No, it doesn't.

You also don't understand what 5 Simple Keys® are if you think this swing either has more or less.

Is his head relatively steady (while making a good pivot)? Yes.

Is his weight/pressure forward at impact? Yes.

Does he have an inline impact condition? Yes.

Does he control his sweetspot path? Yes.

Does he control his clubface? Yes.

The end.

you are getting the attitude because you just post an image, and ask why is this happening. Well he happens because it is his SWING, that is why. Why does Furyk have his weird swing? Why is Kutchar swing very flat? why is Fowler's swing loopy? Why did John Daly almost hit his knee with his driver? The answer is, NOTHING there is no answer. Its their own golf swing. It doesn't matter, they all look different. Yet they all have FIVE things that occur. Those five things have been isolated and studied by those who run this forum. Doesn't matter how you get there, some ways are easier, but if you get those 5 keys, then you will hit the ball the way you want to. Its not hard to understand. Its pretty much, "Oh yea that makes sense". Yet you have no sense to grasp this.

You show no initiative to actually learn anything, yet you challenge those who have and know what is happening. You challenge with what? Golf digest and The Golf Channel.

Or as the great Mark Twain put it,

"“It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt”"

Well you removed all doubt.

Eamonn  probably didn't "follow"all 5 keys... he just had them.

You seem to have something against the 5 keys... most pros mightn't know what the "5 Keys" are if you asked them, but they sure as hell do all of the 5 Keys excellently.

The keys are uniform, the swing doesn't have to be.

I don't think the guys are trying to convert everyone to one swing type... from what I see they work with what they have to get as many of the 5 things as good as possible.

Of course there is more than one way to hit a ball.

You can hit it: very badly, badly, average, good, very good, excellently

I think the 5 keys could be the simplest way of taking the average golfer and saying -if you want to hit the ball better,do this.It may not be the only way,but the simplest way ,which is what golf needs.

    • I agree that Acree put others in danger. And as I stated before, the laws regarding weapons and/or assault need to be enforced in this case. And the rest of my statements only apply if he was fairly certain this guy was the thief (of which none of us knows the truth). I don't care in the least that he threatened the guy's life or kicked him in the head. If I stole from someone, I would expect the same treatment. I promise you, most thieves know it's coming if they get caught by the wrong person. As for leaving this up to the police to solve and retrieve the property... sorry, but that's naive. Go ahead and look the statistics up of recovered stolen property - excluding motor vehicles. As for the police not using what some may view as excessive force... when someone is acting as this guy did, I don't believe they are very "gentle" with them. I don't think they can afford to be. They may be smart enough not to kick anyone, but they'll make sure those cuffs are on nice and tight. I'd love to hear from a law enforcement officer - even if it meant my opinion was proven wrong. But because the rest of us have zero experience in apprehending a suspected criminal, none of us are qualified to do more than offer our stupid-ass opinions. It's a pissing contest of opposing views that will likely lead to the thread being closed. There is no one way to act in this situation. You can think of yourselves as highly intelligent on one side of the argument, or Dirty Harry on the other. But this crap goes way beyond reason or ego. When faced with the situation, you either act, or you don't. And if you're going to act, you can't go halfway. Probably the best thing Acree could have done - once he pulled his weapon - was threaten the guy's life and leave no doubt (at least that's my stupid-ass opinion). I wouldn't have done what he did and that's why I leave my weapons at home. But criminals love the fact that most of us are passive.
    • Hi guys, been working on the swing. Had a few lessons, playing once or twice a week and got down to a score of 20 over par (92 on a 72). But still really struggling with inconsistency. Losing a lot of balls each round, have a bad miss when I come through the ball with a wide open club face and the ball screams straight right out of bounds. Did this on the first tee this week into someone's house...not good when the club pro and loads of people were watching. A dog was barking for the next few minutes :( Any tips? saving up for some more lessons soon but they are expensive to get as much as I want.
    • Chainsaws get heavy if you carry your clubs, gotta take a cart.
    • So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
    • I know you mentioned it, but you're showing yourself as a 30+ handicap.  For the next few years, the sole grind of your wedges isn't going to be nearly as important as learning to use them properly.  In your shoes, I'd be looking at lightly used clubs in approximately the right loft/bounce combinations, without getting too bogged down in the next level of details.
