You know, I still wonder how he makes contact with the ball.? Some would miss with all that movement.

What you say about him dipping his head and shortening the distance to the ball… If he matches this with moving his hips backwards slightly, the distance is maintained and he has a flatter swing. This compression into the ground gives extra power doesn’t it? I’m no expert, but I’ve noticed this about powerful hitters. If he stopped dipping his head do you think he would lose power? Thanks.?

Superb analysis Barry, many thanks. I especially like the explanation of the? left hip ‘delaying’ the hit of the hands and arms. This is because the hands and arms are kept passive and all the force is generated in the body’s centre….something I’m only just getting the hang of after 10 years!

Hi Barry,

That was really very good instruction. Getting me in the mood to improve my swing. Have you any vids about trying to connect with what happens when the hands and shoulders turn? and things kind of get lost. Apreciate it.
Keep up the goos work anyway.

hi,i used to have the same problem then a realized? hogam never released the club with his hands instead,it is better to keep the right elbow close to your body and hold the club off,you strike it better i find.

nodnal13 January 8, 2012 at 2:33 am

hi Barry

Great analysis. Very simple and easy to understand. I have trouble releasing my hands a little early like sergio garcia and? then not using my hips enough to lead my hands. Could you recommend any drills or something to help with this? Thanks

nodnal13 January 8, 2012 at 3:25 am

Hi Barry
I used to play lots of golf and? thought I had a decent swing until I had a free 10 minute analysis. My swing needs to be more flat and I have an issue of releasing my hands too early and not using my hips to turn. Do you possibly have any drills that could help? I appreciate it.

Excellent analysis…I’m not a golfer but love to watch the sport…even before T-Dub? but I had no idea how intricate the game is…and as I get older it’s more appealing.
