Please name the popular swing styles... that are taught


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Can you guys please list/name the main/popular styles pros and ams are using that are TAUGHT, with a short description or not I can look it up? I don't know jack squat about the different swing styles, as I'm self taught and haven't had a lesson but it would be cool as I'm a par golfer and be fun to hear some insight.... I just focus on contact and don't think about the rest. Last weekend watched a vid about what the 6 points are.... oh so that's what you guys are talkin bout! 

 

If you want a gold star you could mention what's a great video describing it so I can watch it in my spare time......  I'm same way with guitar, we jam every Saturday night with our garage band and have some decent songs but dont know jack s4it bout music theory.... started learning tho... play in Key why fuss just make it sound good haha

 

I saw a new thread, asking if Jordy is using stacked and tilt and I have no friggin idea so its time to learn.... Thanks!

Many, many teachers do not fall in these methodology structures, but there are several schools of teaching that have followers.....just off the top of my head, I would say

 

Stack and Tilt-Bennett/Plummer

TGM (the golfing machine)

Single Plane/Two plane-Jim Hardy

Swing the Clubhead-Ernest Jones/Manuel de la Torre

another camp would be that type of swing taught by Jimmy Ballard, but not sure it has a catchy name.

 

If I've offended anyone by either not including your particular type of swing or have matched up two types that don't belong together, I"m sorry.  just trying to give the OP something to dig into.  But like I said, many, many teachers and students don't fall into any of these camps and just try to correct any deficiencies someones swing may have.

There's definitely something more important that I should be doing.

  • Home made or "...wouldn't teach that but it works for him."

       or

  • Classic

Lots of people are into pushing off of the ground. Other people try to rotate through the ball. 

I don't think it matters.  People eventually find what works for them and their physical strengths and limitations.

So many variations.  For me, I tend to look to see if they are a centered pivot vs.  moving off the ball pivot.  And then if they are shifting forward before transition or in transition.  And then if they have a flip release (high overtaking rate, slow rate of closure), a roll release (high rate of closure, slow overtaking rate), a flip-roll (high overtaking rate & rate of closure) or a drive-hold release (slow overtaking rate & slow rate of closure).  

 

Even then, tons of variations involved.

Hey Barf, I have never seen a Mog who was not scratch or better...   Mogs always come through with a clutch shot when it really counts also which is something that my wallet has noticed.  One of my friends says that the tail is an automatic swing balancer and should be outlawed!  Best thing about golfing with a mog though is that they will never fail to find a lost ball that is even remotely findable, I will nearly always finish with the same ball I started with as long as it is not under water or off the course property!

 

As for swing methods I could list the several million that I have tried to emulate but that would probably cause severe migraines for anyone stupid enough to try to read it.  

 

One interesting take on swing methods is based on the research by Dr. Wright.  Larry Rinker is a proponent and there are a lot of videos on youtube describing the swings for various core players.  I like their idea that there is not one swing method that is correct for everyone.  

Here are a few videos:

Hmmm... this can range from " two turns and a swish" @ John Jacobs to the 32 positions in a swing taught by some  guy who says you need to be in "E6"  at a certain position in the swing ?

For the garage band... Glen Campbell couldn't read music (great guitar player) and I play golf with a guy who is a self a taught drummer and toured with some rock groups years ago. Reading music is over rated unless you're a music teacher I guess.

Heck I bet 99% of rockers can't play unseen sheet music and can't read music lol.... even the session guys from back in the day could barely read music... the famous session guy that could and got all the Movie and TV work was Tommy Tedesco.

 

I was saying I don't even know music theory lol let alone reading music.... that's a million miles away.  I can play but gonna work on theory finally lol

Wow thanks Krt!!! 👍

 

Now that's the answer I was lookin for!

 

I would like to at least know what theories are out there as I rebuild my swing for the millionth time.... coming off Achilles surgery.  But I'm curious what my homemade swing really is as compared to the popular methods taught, and do I want to borrow parts of what I like or even take a lesson to learn more about a certain method

Mog Golf rocks and I'm my own best friend lol!!

 

Thanks for Dr. Wrights videos... just watched em!  Interesting approach.  Thing I don't like is he wants to figure out what natural biases you have, which is cool, but then he wants to change the other parts to fit one of those 3 Core types.  I'd say just because other High Core players have a weaker grip doesn't mean you can't use a strong grip etc... dunno i think it be fine to mix it all up as we are all different sizes and strenghts in so many areas that its cool to be completely different.  But it is cool how he can tell you what you do so you can break down the swing and also predict/prevent injuries and such....

You are a good mog Barf!

Per Homer Kelly's research presented in his book 'The Golfing Machine' there are billions of possible 'correct' combinations of swing mechanics.  The trick is finding a combination that works well for any particular golfer!
