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.

Best putting machine ever: You

Published

on

So many professionals on different tours struggle with their putting — and then they wonder why amateurs are struggling. It is high time (because of my success as a putting coach is less known but no less successful) that they let another coach take a crack at it with very real science and anatomy to back it all up.

I’m talking about every aspect of putting (from stance, to distance to ball, to posture, to alignment, to distance control, to speed of entry, to psychology). You will love how incredibly basic and sophisticated this video is and how easily it will be to apply for you. Enjoy the lower scores and freedom!
