A lot of Ben Hogan in that transition.  It's a pretty complicated move....more going on there than the average tour player.

Notice the takeaway.....not one piece but breaks the wrist early so the butt of the shaft isn't pointing at the belly button for very long on the takeaway.  Not exactly textbook .......prefer to see the club rotate back maintaining the "triangle" as long as possible and keeping the club perpendicular to the axis of rotation for as long as possible. (pointed at the belly button during takeaway).

Also...the down swing transition is very Hoganesque in the way he tilts his whole body a wee bit to the left prior to transitioning down.  That tilt to the left really reminds me of Hogan.  It looks almost as if his whole body shifts ever so slightly to the left at the top just a tiny bit as a way of initiating the downswing.  I always thought this was one of the idiosyncracies of Hogan's swing that made him hard to copy.

Here's a video of Hogan shifting his weight at the top of his backswing to the the left side.  Rock's action reminds me of this a bit but if you watch Rock in comparison to Hogan his shift to the left while present is less noticeable and his first move down into the slot with his arms appears ever so slightly over the top of the plane rather than directly into the plane as Hogan's is.

I remember seeing this guy last year at the Open and thought he had a great swing, Reminded me a bit of Hogan with is lower body. He needs a haircut though.

Man he really came close to fanning it...he admitted it...off the last tee box.  He was very close under the gun to handing it away.  Congrats to Rock and hopefully he makes the spring dance in April. :good:

is it me or does he have a lot of "inclination" at address? I may not be using the proper term so I will say he looks like he is more bent over at address.

Love his swing!

I'm pretty sure he worked with Grant Waite and Joe Mayo this week. It will be interesting to find out what changes, if any, he ends up making to his swing.

I agree with Kevin.

Many many many Tour pros start their forward swing before their downswing is completed..

Try throwing something heavy (towards an imaginary target) from your golf posture, you'll fire the lower half well before the upper half.

If true, that's interesting in itself. I'd pay money just to watch Rocky and Grant hitting balls together on the range!

Frame 2, 3 and 4 look very different to me...look at Rock's front knee, never gets past his front ankle.  Looks can be deceiving.

absolutely huge differences in these swings
1st series -note diffrence in head tilt -Grant sighificantly tiltes ,while Rock does  not
2nd series-this shows a huge difference.Grant's upper back is vertical and his upper body weight  is centered /left
Rock's upper back is slightly tilted away from the target.His upper body is  weight is centered /right
3rd series Grant's left leg is already bowed. Indicates a significant amount of lateral drive already
Rock's leg is sold over his left heel
4th series-Grant's left knee is almost over  his left toe.a consequence of his large amount of lateral drive
Rock's  left knee is toward the middle/outer part of the foot

These swings are not comparable.
All touring pros have supernatural skills and these two are  not the exceptions in that regard . Any of us  at golfwrx would love to have the ball striking abilities of either one of these pros,but these swings are significant different .

Mr Rock has a very nice swing ,but his release and rotation  is nothing like Mr Hogan's
