I'll tell you what. You take five random people and teach them from Hogan's swing and ill teach five from Mike Austin and Jack Nicklaus. .

You'll be lucky if you can get one to break 100 copying Hogan. My students would be driving balls over the driving range fence.

Do you even play golf? You sure have a lot of opinions on the subject...

Hogan was a tremendous athlete, and a true gentleman, but I would not copy his swing.

I showed evidence and stated facts and direct quotes, not my opinions. I quoted Jack Nicklaus's opinion on Ben Hogan being the best ball striker ever at the time.

I have actually never played ball golf. I play disc golf so I shift my weight like Ben Hogan and move my feet and hips and my head.

Oh. Got it.

You do not shift your weight like Hogan. Your head is moving from swing center to swing center like a Jimmy Ballard swing or a Ledbetter swing from the 1980s. Your head is moving nearly a foot in your swing video.

It's not the same.

Skip to six minutes.

Lol, that Ballard swing is exactly what I do, love that clinic! But I learned how to do it from Shawn Clement and Ben Hogan, just exaggerated his teachings.

I see more Hogan and Greg Norman than Nicklaus in your golf swing with the rear foot slide. As Mike Austin said in that 2hr clinic on your channel, it's bowling.

Do this. Stand on your front foot like you would with your throw. Now swing your arms around your lead leg. Both arms just loose and fully extended. You will find you can swing around,back and back and forth in a wide arc like a discus thrower on your lead leg. Your chest will not sway but will rotate. Your head will barely move. Now the question is... How are you collapsing the natural arm swing arc around your head over (over your lead leg on your front foot) so that your required to so violently dip you chest?

Put the disc down. Find the arc. I will give you a hint it is WIDE not close. The typical discer, through years of being told to "pull the disc close" has no concept of the wide arc that is the most natural throwing motion in sports. Typically, arc is collapsed at the beginning, due to the linear pull, and to try to get wide you will be late, like a golfer that tries to hold the wrist cock on the way down to the ball, when he should be throwing the head wide from the top. You must get wider sooner. You might even feel like your hand has to go straight out from your chest to start.

Practice without a disc. Then when you add the disc, really, really slow down. Throw half speed to start. Wide... Big arc.

Look at this. Just look at it.

She just threw a 12 lbs discus 250 feet. Nothing "linear" about it.
