If you told a non-WRXer about a swing called the slicefixer swing ... what would their first impression be ?
(1) slicefixer ...... ? but I don't slice !
(2) I slice ! ... sounds perfect.

Of course the slicefixer swing is equally good for hooker as it is for slicers.
It's the literal interpretation of the word slicefixer that throws people off.
Similar to the idea of Swinging Left (but let's not go there (again)).

Of course, I don't actually want to change the name of the slicefixer swing, I rather like it.

But if you didn't rename the swing ... what would you call it and why ?

Bonus marks for a name that gives you "an essence" of the swing when interpreted literally.

Though Slicefixer himself doesn't call it the "Slicefixer swing", 'cause there is no such thing... I would call it the "T-S-T swing" -> Turn-Set-Turn.

As I wrote that, I realized people would probably think it's a variation of S&T - Stack and Tilt. Ha!

I don't know what to call the SF swing, but can we call The Leadbetter swing "Shankopotomus?"

Yes, Monte, you can't just leave that hanging.  I kind of like "the WRX swing", but outside the 1% on this board, no one would understand the reference.

Ha! I picked up on him recently as a contender as a shanker on the basis that he set his hands so close at address and they barely passed his right hip on the way down... same as Furyk who is also prone to the occasional one off the pipe! I didn't realise Leadbetter actually WAS a shanker. Too funny.


Back to the subject matter....

Not sure what the slicefixer swing really is as I never slice so never bothered to really look into it more than a few bits here and there... looks pretty much like any other swing doesn't it????? apart from most people who go apparently don't even know how to grip the club properly, despite a) the grip is not a fundamental and b) great players grip in many different ways. Which greats use the 'Slicefixer Swing'?

Actually snt teaches only certain pieces depending on the player now instead of selling it as a specific pattern like they used to.  So that means every golf swing is a variation of snt

I for one have never really understood calling it anything more than fundamentally sound. Geoff himself calls it modern. If I HAD to call it something it would be passive release

Connected one plane swing would be wrong.  Geoff himself acknowleges that his students are both one and two-planers.

I'm not sure why you simply couldn't say that he teaches a Rotary Swing or Pivot Driven Swing.

If someone asked me about how to learn the golf swing, I would suggest Slicefixer's book, (hopefully out soon), and I would refer him to the 9-3 thread.  I would call it a system for learning a leveraged pivot controlled golf swing using drills and training aids.  I'm not sure what the swing would be called.

Since the original poster mentioned the 9-3 thread,he was referring to the leveraged release that Geoff Jones suggests.In this release both arms from elbows on up will be connected through impact.This is NOT possible WITHOUT an open body at impact.This is NOT possible with a crossover release.This is NOT possible if the arms are extended in front of the body..As  one poster suggested all golfers swing left .Swinging left is not the goal ,the goal is is connected release.
Would Connected Release Swing be a good name ?

I agree.  Lots of people will think of it like that anyway ... but ...

I called the Marketing Department and they said No.  :)
They said Swings need names :)

Body Rotation/Body-release swing.

The swing is powered by the rotation of the body, and the arms working around the body like a baseball swing or a discus thrower.

"Body-release" because the release of the club head and the squaring up of the clubface is controlled by the body's rotation as well.  Not by rotation of the forearms in the more "classic"  and more upright "two-plane swing".
