    I’m 14 h/c and in all my 30 years of golfing I have always fought the dreaded over-the-top move. No pro could ever find a cure, and every winter I am determined to change it through practice, and nothing ever happens and when I start playing again, its slice/pull/slice/pull once again.

    Then I remembered that I was really good at those long bunker shots (the most difficult shot in golf I’ve heard it called?) where the technique is to restrict lower body action and play more with the arms. So I thought, why not hit everything like this?
    Recently I was trying to swing ‘properly’ in a club competition, but after 7 holes I had 8 points. Nothing to lose, so I changed to a ‘swing’ that is all wrong in every possible way ie stand flat footed with chest facing the ball at impact for as long as possible and swish the ball away with my arms only. Result, 27 points on the remaining 11 holes and a win. There was a great improvement in accuracy, and almost no loss of distance. My question is, why does this work? Is there anybody that plays like this?

    short answer is, it doesnt!

     

    prob 7 wrongs making one right for one occasion, if that ‘move’ works consistently for 3 rounds my name is Butch Harmon.

    The fact you havent posted again in 3 weeks speaks volumes.

    Why dont you post a video of this statue swing
