    I’ve tried his swing style, it’s like a classic loop swing. You take it to top clubhead way across the line and loop the club to the inside on downswing or you’d miss the ball. It’s why his feet move backwards on the downswing in slow motion specifically the right foot, the clubhead being thrown from such across position to way inside causes that with the feet. Mine do the same thing when I try it.

    It’s not easy to do at a very high level golf but it works pretty well for him obviously.

    Can you imagine all the people out there going to try to copy his swing lol.

    “Monte, so I used to be scratch then I saw this guy with a weird backswing on tv and devoted the next year to swing just like him but now I’m a 25, please help”.

    There are many merits to what he’s doing. The problem, as you said, is he does things to an extreme that others will find difficult to manage.

    Not unlike bowing the lead wrist is good(great), but copying DJ is a losing proposition.

    The irony is his swing isn’t crazy. It’s just classically good.

    The only “crazy” thing he does is he has a different wrist position at the top which makes it easier for “him” to get transition wrist action correct. Miller Barber and others of the past did similar things.

    Transition wrist action is one of the most poorly understood and performed things in the swing...and where most ams go wrong.

    Is it just a later arm rotation and late right wrist extension?

    I saw someone on the range trying to swing like him. I have no idea why because he was absolutely terrible.

    I usually wouldn't notice but I'm a lefty and he was right in front of me. I just wanted to ask him "What the #

    Once learning that transition and impact are the only two variables that matter comes the day when back swings become less important than knowing how to use change of direction, from anywhere, as the advantage.

    Yes, but there are some back swing positions that are very hard to transition from. Besides getting across the line with his wrists, the rest of his backswing/pivot is solid

    Certainly so for those that see lines to be crossed, but some hold there are no lines in space, only pressures, both unseen but one more useful.

    This is a gem. If you don't understand this statement, I'd recommend trying to :smile:

    Well Faldo in his prime couldn’t hit it within 50 yards of the 🐺 with the same equipment. With all of Monte’s struggles with getting fast in the transition in the senior us open..the most amazing part of the 🐺 performance is to watch how his rhythm never changed

    His distance was good enough to win 41 times and 6 majors.

    I do not see how people's front heel raises naturally like that. I've tried and tried and mine stays on the ground no matter how much weight/pressure I put into the rear heel.

    It happens naturally if you pivot correctly.

    YMW is a young, gifted athlete with phenomenal hand-eye coordination who has been playing with this swing for years. A middle aged fat guy has no chance to learn this swing.

    Different era...he played in a ball control era not the bomb n gouge ...well I wouldn’t call it gouge for the most part the rough isn’t long enough to have to gouge it out. Faldo would be looking for speed in this era..he was short for how tall he was kinda like Kuchar.

    He’s just jealous because he 6 inches taller and 150 yards shorter off the tee.

    Faldo wasn’t that short and Wolff isn’t that long. Faldo was 18-20 yards shorter than the longest hitters in his day. Wolff is long don’t get me wrong but Faldo could certainly get within 50 yards of him. He averaged mid 260s with persimmon and his longest drives with persimmon were over 300

    Yeah Faldo was shorter and not super short, but 20 yards shorter is a huge detriment as he was even a club shorter than the middling hitters. It really showed and he hates it too. But no he isn't short by regular people standards. And his ball striking to this day is still on point (watch his Mizuno videos). It's pretty crazy. Faldo's standard for himself was to be the best, which is why there's the conversation. 99% of every other pro golfer would have loved to have his career. Faldo just kicks himself for not being a longer hitter (not that he didn't try changing his swing) because he could have been amongst the all time top 5 if he was longer is probably what he felt.

    Wolff has won one tournament at the age of 20 (have we heard that enough?) let's not get too excited, but he does seem to have a brighter future than most. People ridiculed Furyk for his swing but he just kept on winning and performing to a long successful career and a 58. Let's hope Wolff can do the same.

    In 96 Faldo hit long irons into 13 and 15 at Augusta, in 97 Tiger was hitting short irons into those holes. A huge inflection point.

    Faldo was above average in length. He certainly wasn’t “a club shorter than middling hitters”.

    Faldo is 17 years older..and was never considered long or straight off the tee. He was plenty long enough with the irons.

    Yes there was a little bit of hyperbole but my point was he built his swing on precision being the most important and a lot of the modern superstars has built a speed swing biased swing.

    I believe like a lot of older players despise how the game has changed to a power game instead of a control game.

    Wolff's coach George Gankas put a video on his instagram the other day after the win about Wolff's wrist action. He uses an extremely weak grip then flexes (bows) the wrist in transition to get into his impact position.
