This video is about OVER-AND-THROUGH, which is very different than being over-the-top. Over-and-through is a great recovery from a backswing that is not quite in the right position. Over-the-top is flat-out a full default to the ball. See how you can bridge the gap with getting your swing to deliver better to the target!

    Excellent Shawn. The dreaded OTT can actually be very effective, when executed as you explain here. Powerful, natural, easy to manage and never stuck. Worked brilliantly for Parry and Lietzke, but also Jones, Snead and Nicklaus and many more.

    I love your metaphorical imagery trying to explain the feel of the golfswing to non-athletic duffers who compromise 90% of all golfers worldwide.
    However, your attempt to explain the scientific physics of the golfswing is not good because you use the wrong terminology to explain the dynamics of the swing. Stick to imagery.

    It’s all a matter of body anatomy and type. This is best explained in “The LAWs of the Golf Swing” by Adams, Suttie, Tomasi. The body types that do the OTT are usually stocky ‘endomorphs’ who optimize with the Width (W) swing. Your examples are a hybrid of the Width and Arc swings also explained in the book.

      OTT the caused by one thing only. That is pronation of the trail hand from the top of the BS.

      OTT is eliminated simply by supinating the trail hand from the top of the BS. One thought to solve the most common problem with golfers swings.

        Movember is a fund raising charity. Growing a beard in November to raise awareness and money for a good cause. OGO is not with the program. He would rather polarize.

Stickney: There are many ways to pitch the ball that work

Published

on

While surfing through some old swings, I found a great photo of two players hitting pitch shots at Augusta. Both are great pitchers of the ball but use differing techniques. It goes to show you that there is more than one way to get the job done and in fact it reiterates that there is really no “law” when it comes to what shot to play under certain circumstances.

Note: I did NOT say that one was better than the other; I said both work, but you must decide which style works better for you in the end.

In the photo on the left, the player in the white sets his wrists fully, but as we look at the player on the right (in the blue) you can see no wrist hinge at all. So, which is more correct? Both are!

The player on the left hits his pitch shots with more of a driving of the leading edge, which relies on a steeper angle of attack. The golfer on the right uses more of the bounce of the club and thus will come into the ball more shallowly. Not setting the wrists as much helps him to do so.

So, remember that you must experiment with both styles to find your best way…but don’t forget it’s nice to understand and learn how to use both!
