By looking at tapes of Moe and emulating his mechanics, that's how! Mechanics which are completely different then what the NGCI's on the NG board are advocating, ie: straight back, along the target line takeaway, while Moe takes it back vertical and inside almost immediately!

The difference between a "pusher's" swing, and "pullers" swing is more radical then the difference between a palm grip and a vardon! If that isn't a lack of continuity, then why not just call NG a form of conventional golf?

No, No, No! The LTOBG has some nebulous semanitics that relate to what the feelings of the downswing are, they only go into the actual mechanics of a "pusher's" swing, which is not what is being hawked by the NGCIs on the NG board!

If Hazeldine was still the Vice President of NG in charge of instruction, there would only be one way of teaching it, not some hodge podge of whatever the NGCIs personal opinion of what the NG swing is supposed to be, as it is now!

Are you my caddy or something?? How do you know how I swing? For your edification, I use a hand and arm swing in a single axis setup, more akin to the Heard Super Swing, except not with the radical grip. Also check out my handicap at GHIN.com look up Charles Ford of Illinois, Old Oak Country club, I have a current index of 14.4.

Now exactly who are you, could it be Kirk???
