I don't ... That is what we all call sway... that photo is
bloody awful and if you could show me a tour player in that
position at the top... that would be just peachy.
All these videos will do is teach the flip and leg drive.
Actually... that ain't entirely true.
Brady has a good sort of system going there - but the knees are
going in the wrong direction on the backswing and downswing,
and why does he teach a squat in the top of the backswing to
get space ? If the knees goes right on the backswing - then
they have to go left on the downswing.
The last bloke is a total moron and should not be teaching
anything. He is the simplest of teachers and only has one swing
pattern. He is teaching from a book and is regurgitating with
Which part of his body is swaying in that photo of a complete
Here is a comparison between his backswing and Adam Scott's
I think that he gets over to the right side with his upper torso
more than Adam Scott, which means that his head is over his right
foot, instead of being inside his right foot like Adam Scott.
Interestingly, if one looks at all the other photos of his
backswing, he does have less tilt of his upper body over to the
right and his head is vertically over a point that is just inside
his right foot. This photo was a slight exaggeration - posed for
the camera to demosntrate a static position (for the book 'A
Lifetime of Lessons: " by David Denunzio).
In the Brady Riggs video, you state that the knees are going in
the wrong direction. Could you be more explicit. I cannot see any
evidence of the knees moving in the wrong direction. The
"Swing Like a Pro" authors recommend a slight squat at
the end of the backswing, and Ben Hogan had the same move.
The last person is Steve Bishop, a golf instructor in Arizona. I
think that he is a wonderful golf instructor, and not just
regurgitating stuff from a book.
