great video mark, in the second portion dealing with overswing, what many people who do so don’t understand is that they are trying to create clubhead speed with momentum from more body movement, whereas the should be using a more compact/less backswing which allows for more leverage, to? achieve the same results in regard to momentum. you’re vid’s are getting better all the time. great work!

I see this a lot on the range. I too had the same issues? for years until someone taught this to me and I saw myself on video. I never knew I had such a long and over-rotated back swing. Good tips here. Keep em coming Mark.

Outstanding Mark. Less is more indeed. After years of overswinging (and lots of fat? shots) I was advised to swing less on the way back and feel the coil and torque in my right leg. Ever since my ball striking has been really good and very consistent. Less is more indeed!!!

@l33ble you don’t need any lessons, just check out djwattsgolf and learn? to swing the mechanically correct way.

l33ble March 19, 2012 at 4:38 pm

Excellent video! My 2 major flaws in one session. I double hinge my wrists and “over rotate”. Now to sort it (and then no doubt find another flaw). I just? wish I could get a lesson from you (Scotland is a bit far to travel)

Mark,
If you are doing less with your lower body, you will not only be limiting your distance but also causing problems with your back (as proven by the myriad of pro golfers who have back problems).
Could you give us your opinion? on the swing of Mike Austin? The longest driver of the ball in sanctioned PGA competition.

@roycesboy It is mainly momentum of the release, but if you do not close the face over enough and you hit fades you should control it yourself ( but dont over do? the release)

Reply

roycesboy March 19, 2012 at 8:16 pm

should it feel like the momentum of the swing? releases your hands through the shot or is there a feeling of closing the club face with your hands with the right timing?

mcgroogtube March 19, 2012 at 8:26 pm

I’d like to ask u some questions Mark, i am almost 100% about this but would like u to clarify the word that often comes up in golf for power is SEPERATION, is this how much you can use a shoulder turn against a minimal amount of lower body? rotation, i know thats kinda what u have explained here, i am very limber 17 year old with long arms and 6 foot 4, i have always been well past parallel, i also want to ask do you not think the width and length of guys like John Daly and DJ get length from it
