Interesting that other instructors are now seeing the merits in what Geoff has been advocating.  They're starting to promote it in their own teaching as an important part of building a solid swing foundation.

To be fair, Bobby Jones was probably doing this drill. :busted2:

9 to 3 swing drills have been around for quite awhile...

There are all sorts of variations and focuses...

Slice teaches a full hinge at 9 and a pivot release with his drill...

Others will have similar focuses or different focuses...

Thanks for the insight.  I didn't know that it has been that widely used over the years and by others.  Guess the name of the drill seems to be catching on with a lot of instructors now.  Or has it been called that by other teachers long ago as well?  Slice was the first I heard with a drill by that title.

Smack Daddy ... I stand corrected.  Do you have a reference to what BJ suggested?  Thanks .. :)

Even though 9-3 drills have been around, this one is not really the same as slicefixer's.  It is a much shorter swing...club going from 9-3 rather than the arms.

( edit )
I take that back...by the end of the video he does hinge the wrists and go to arms at 9 o'clock in back swing.

John Novosel (of "Tour Tempo" fame) uses the "Y-drill", which is very similar to this as well.  The "Y-drill", along with the "L-drill" (bringing hand action into it), are his only real building blocks for swing mechanics that should be used in conjunction with tempo development.

I thought the 9 to 3 drill was having your arms at 9 and then three, and not the golf club?
