Stack and Tilt Golf Swing

by David Jenyns on January 25, 2012

Golf Life Television and Hitgolf.com interview Michael Bennett, the co-inventor of the popular new swing on the PGA Tour, The Stack and Tilt. Bennett and his partner researched golf swings and body mechanics to arrive at this golf swing philosophy that has been very successful with many PGA tour professionals like Dean Wilson, Mike Wier and Arron Baddeley.

Golf Monthly takes a close look at Luke Donald’s golf swing. The Englishman’s rise to the top of the world rankings has been built on a solid swing and golfers everywhere would do well to replicate Donald’s simple, yet highly effective swing sequence

@stuntman206in traditional stack and tilt pattern is punch elbow with square shoulders at impact. Serious question…how are you inline with punch elbow and square shoulders at impact? the baseline is out to the right and it influences big hooks until players learn to compensate for the flawed position. All of the “stack and tilt” guys on PGA tour have elbow infront of the right hip at impact. They dont? stack and tilt anymore

There still is a weight shift off the right to the left like any other athletic motion. I am a PGA Teaching professional and currently play at a 3 index. I have played this setup now for several years and? find that it needs to addressed cautiously and delicately to be implemented properly. When done so, it is a simpler, more repeatable way to swing yielding an overall substantial increase in distance resulting from overall improved ball striking and a lower, higher spinning ball flight.

I think the main? aspect of this to understand is that the extreme examples of high handicappers that people see in the infomercial with straight right legs at the top creating a stack, tilt and hang the f’ on to the left side is not what proper, more advanced S&T is. A proper S&T is no more than controlling reducing lateral movement, improving consitency and a downward hands forward position at impact. When its really done correctly, its only slightly different from a traditional motion.

S & T Does Work, the pros only went away because of confidence, the stats said they? were hitting it better, but they didnt believe it, it was all confidence

@stuntman206in because they can’t do it themselves that why they think it sucks.
i’d love to see some of these so called swing professionals videos? on here.

hey this swing works for some and not others.
So because a professional golfer tries another method then it’s no longer a good method.
Aaron Baddeley’s a pretty average Golf pro with or? without S&T.

Some parts of this swing techniques are fine. Particularly for good iron play. Moving off the ball, and not being? able to return to the ball in proper sequence can lead to inconsistent shot making. Stack and Tilt keeps you closer to the hitting area, which is good if you move off the ball too much. Right sided swing does this as well. To each his own, whatever works. No one here can condemn another for what works for them. I like certain aspects of the S&T for mid and lower irons.

google “stack and tilt vs sean foley” and read the golf digest article? and then remember that this is TIGER WOODS new coach and he just said that he is compressing the ball “like I never have before” and hitting the ball “more flush”

Iron Byron? Hmmm…I’ve been teaching golf for several yrs, and being centered does have it’s benefits, however even Hogan maintained a positive spine angle away from the targit in his backswing, verifying a loading into to right side in the backswing! It’s simple physics and common sense when watching a pitcher throwing a ball or a boxer throwing a knockout punch, you can’t do it from your leading leg. ” 2 pivot points creates a natural latural lateral movement from the backleg? to the front.

Face it S&T’ers, it’s over. If Charlie Wi follows Aaron Baddeley’s? leaving of S&T, he’s gonna win a lot of tournaments, quite possibly a major

@thegolfman52 maybe for some.. but I really do? make better contact, etc.. swinging this way. Shoot, my PW goes 150, 9 iron ~165 and up from there.. its nuts.. but more importantly it feels right, smooth and crisp. to each his own I guess. It pisses me off a lil that these guys are selling dvds claiming they invented this swing.. thats the most bullshit about it

I am new to golf, and I actually began to develop this exact swing. IT made so much sense! made me hit? the ball straight, and far ! I was doing great, and it felt great! then I took a golf lesson and the guy said I was doing it all wrong, and really messed me up! Now that i find out others believe in this method as well, I am going back to it! I will not be crediting these guys with “inventing” a new swing however, This is how my body naturally developed its swing, its right for me!

@blackkow87 LMAO what’s even funnier is you’ve delisted your video and stopped people from making comments on it. Not surprising seeing other people were telling you how stupid your swing looked. Or maybe YT did? because they have a policy of no gay porn. Well if anyone wants a good laugh here is the douche bags swing.

@blackkow87 Kind of hard not to notice your ass you stick it out so much. As I said it looks like you’re about to drop your pants for your boyfriend. You swing is fucking terrible. Also I’m surprised you didn’t bag your head, it looks like a smashed crab. You talk about sucking cock a lot, seems you have a lot of experience. Maybe if you did less of that and actually practiced a? real swing you might be able to hit a decent ball.
You must be laughed off the golf course with your swing.

Jospehporta January 25, 2012 at 7:13 pm

@blackkow87 Hmm feeling a little inferior, not surprising with a swing like yours. Honestly you stick your ass so far out it looks like you’re waiting for your boyfriend to come up behind you.
LOL it doesn’t take balls to put anything on YT. Well maybe for you it does, putting that hideous swing and face on YT.
Well considering I’m not a pro golfer and play 2-3 times a month, I’d expect them to beat me. However I’d wipe the floor with you. My? biggest problem would be trying not to laugh at you.

@blackkow87 The remarks took me all of? 5 seconds to write and they are completely truthful 🙂 Your swing is terrible.

@blackkow87 LOL well Baddeley says he won it on talent. It still doesn’t change the fact that any self respecting? pro isn’t using it. How does that feel, ya moron 🙂 Any more bullshit. It isn’t my fault this is the only technique you can use. Have you finished crying?
