There’s a Turn!

There are many Mike Austin self-appointed guru’s/ experts out there that have, as Mike would say, “the damn thing wrong.” That’s hurting a lot of the guys and gals that are trying to learn the real deal. There’s a turn in the Mike Austin golf swing. It’s not just a shift. Why else would Mike Austin be saying to keep the rear knee and hip going until it reaches the big toe? That action is driving the swing. It’s a shift of weight and a turn.

The Babe

Babe Ruth Playing Handball

Mike Austin often spoke to me about Babe Ruth. This guy wasn’t call the “Sultan of Swat” for nothing. He’d shift his weight to the back foot and then shift it to the front. Here’s the Babe playing hand ball.  Look familiar? He’s certainly not  keeping both legs flexed and twisting his upper body against his lower body.

The Long Driving Team

I recently watched some “highlights” of the Long Driving Championship. It made me wince thinking about how Mike Austin would have reacted to it. Here’s a great clip with Mike telling a story of his long hitting days while impressing upon me the importance of tempo. Enjoy.
