Hello all at Golf MRX.
Hoping to get some help with my golf.I know there are so many swing methods, but im hoping to find one which suits me.I have taken lots of lessons and the info I gt is correct, but I just can't get into these positions in the swing.What I am looking for is a type of method I can use which would suit my swing and just stick to copying that.
Here are my faults.
Little bit too much lateral movement in backswing.
Pulling of the butt of the club in downswing causing the shaft to get steep
Elbows too far from body in swing, no connection
Head goes up at impact like Stenson,Anika.
Irons off the heel, with the odd shank
Driver high right, sometimes low pull.
apart from that quite a nice swing images/smilies/smiley.gif

SWINGS IVE TRIED
stack and tilt - worked great with irons, but after a while stopped working
Jim hardy one plane - too much to think about
swinging the clubbed Ernest jones - Easy to do but probably not suitable for me

MY OWN FEELINGS
I like a swing where I use my shoulders and hips to swings don't like thoughts of where the hands and arms should be.im guessing I need a kind of compact swing idea, but needs to be simple.
Hope someone can help me, many thanks for taking time in reading this.kind regards David

Ernest Jones here. Easy is right. Lost my swing the last 3 weeks. Started tinkering around and found my old swing, which ain't bad. Swinging the club head made the difference. That plus less grip pressure.
Livin' proof that Lefties are not naturally talented.

Doesnt matter which "method" you use, if any. Get the swing on plane with a good release thru impact & it will all work.

The ultimate golf lesson: Plane and Release by fe…:



Ben Hogan basically said whatever you think a golf swing is, reverse it. Personally I like the Mike Malaska swing "concept".

Since this was posted in the Hogan's Heroes Swing Forum, the obvious question is:
have you read the Five Lessons and tried to apply them?  If so, what difficulties
did you encounter with them?  As "methods" go, it are about as good as it gets.

Actually, I know a bit already. MORAD appears to be TGM on a higher level, without its flaws.
