Thanks, Jim. I´ve allway thought I have two swings, one a body swing and the other a ´swingy´ swing (à la Ernest Jones, as Murray comments) and I have allways felt caught in between. This is an excelent description of the ´other swing´. Maybe I should get back to the drawing board!

Comment from Murray Henley

Yes, Jim, you almost said it! "Swing The Clubhead." It's as simple as that. Ernest T. Jones must be smiling.

Here is a teaching pro who is a vocal proponent of the "swing the clubhead" concept. BTW, this is someone who could add something different to Revolution Golf. Ron Sisson on Youtube:

It's nice to hear a lesson that doesn't mention "core". Thanks!

Very interesting...So what method is used for the flexible type bodies compared to this body following the swing method? Would it be the swing following the body's lead then? Thanks

I want to take a series of private lessons from Jim. How can I do that?

Leslie King taught the "Free Arm Swing" in his book "Master Key to Good Golf". He goes into a great deal of detail. I recommend reading it if you want to master the free arm swing.

This a GREAT video clip!. I have tried the one piece all body type of swing and occasionally nail it.....but time and again when doing that forget to swing the club and hit the ball with my hands. This video is giving me permission to have a hands and arms dominated swing and finally to really understand that golf is definitely not a " one swing fits all " game. Thank you Jim I have posted it to "favourites".

I have been looking at this a little lately especially Chris Kirk's swing. I am a little quick and tense more often than fluid and I think this is the style of swing I need to change to to get better consistency and less muscle pain. I enjoy your tips and have and use your training videos.

Hi Jim. That looks like it could be good for me to stop the violence in my swing/hit. I cannot stop from cutting across the ball, outside in - could this help with that. John from sydney

Hi Jim, Thanks for this informative lesson. I think my swing has developed into this very type of style. When I am on, I am contacting the ball well and have quite repeatable distance through my club set. But even when I am striking the ball solidly, I seem to have very high trajectory with my irons (not though with my fairway metals and driver). This makes the game harder in windy conditions and robs me of some distance and rollout. The question I have is how do you get more forward shaft lean at impact (so I can flight the ball lower and probably farther) with this type of looser swing? Any thoughs on that would be appreciated.

Now were talking swing theory. Seems this is a natural swing. I grew up learning to clear hips and that they lead the way for arms and then club/hands. Puts more stress on the hips and now I feel it over the years
But sometimes if I don't clear hips hands turn over creating duck hooks. Seems like this swing isn't powered by lower body and is less consistent because timing of hands must be perfect.

I play this way even though I am very flexible. It seems to me it is simply the best way to play, certainly the most enjoyable way to play. Lack of flexibility originates in tension. There is no such thing as a relaxed inflexible body. The modern swing requires flexibility because it demands tension. And, it seems to me that it is all based on the shaky propositions that a short motion is a more accurate motion and that a body with fewer moving parts would move better. Can you imagine telling a gymnast that they would stick the landing better if only they would not move their head?

I like this idea. I wonder; can you have one method for some of your clubs, and maybe another method for other clubs. For instance, I find I score better if I think swing with my driver and 3-wood, body release with my long and mid irons, and back to a swing for my wedges. Is that good, or would I be better served to have 1 type of swing for all my clubs?

Great question! I'd love to hear McLean's thoughts...my intuition tells me that if the "variable swing" works for you, then stick with it.

Great observation---if only all teachers would first evaluate the capabilities of students! At age 74 my body cannot do the things it did @ age 25.

Jim,
would you advise this "swinging" type of swing for those of us who suffer from lower back muscle spasms? I find the more I work on lower body first, the more I am inclined to suffer spasms.
