    Brings Sam Snead to mind.

    If you can do this it will get you a wee bit closer
    to Slammin’ Sammy’s swing. 🙂

      My reaction as well, except Sammy produced his famous squat move as he started the downswing. The right hip has to hold back as the hip turn begins.

      I like this video though because so many people are tryng to severely restrict their hip turn on the backswing, which produces an OTT downswing as well as a weak, upper body only move. Look at Bubba, big hip turn.

    Monte when doing this on the backswing I really struggle with where my weight is suppose to be, when I try to tilt at address my weight wants to get on the outside of my right foot when I turn, do you know the feeling I am talking about?

      Yes. This is why golf is so hard, you have to synchronize movements.

      Chabbs, don’t worry about that. That’s where your weight is supposed to be. Just don’t let it turn into a lateral slide or tilt. Look at vids of Sam Snead, Hogan or young Jack and they all got their weight on the outside of their right foot.

    Great video Monte, on back swing rotate hip up and away as far as possible!
    You mention for the downswing to get the left hip as far away as possible.
    A question or concept that I am trying to make clear has to do with your video on shoulder turn and the surgical tube. I guess I’m trying to marry the two concepts together. You said in the shoulder video you want to get the right shoulder as far away as possible and turn it toward the ball (by way of surgical tube feel). So am I correct to believe that the right hip on the downswing turns down toward the ball before moving up and away?

      The right hip moves up an away on the backswing, as does the right shoulder. I said nothing about the right hip on the downswing. The left hip moves laterally, then up and away on the downswing.

      To make fun of you a little…how could the right hip move up and away from the ball on the downswing…LOL.

        Me bad! Wait. Let me clarify. I said the right hip on the downswing moves down toward the ball, then (meant) it turns and moves up to finish.

        My point was does the shoulder and hip on the downswing turn downward toward the ball. In trying to get a feel or understanding of the shoulder and hip movement, I’m trying to relate 2 of your videos together (this one and the one on hip)

    I’m guessing you still need to maintain the flex in the right knee?

      As long as it doesn’t straighten completely, you are OK.

        Thanks Monte. Been working on the Transition video stuff all week without a ball, hitting it much nicer this week than last.

    When are you going to start selling tour issue surgical tubing? This will blow tour sticks out of the water as far as I am concerned.

    Yeah – Tour issue surgical tube with ultra special tour issue pegs for fixing it in the ground and a tour issue harness to connect the tube to your right shoulder. Must be worth at least $100 🙂
