In honor of the Masters, here’s a fantastic lesson from the Master, Mike Austin.
Viewers are interested in how the club and hands move, so here goes – in vivid detail.
The first lesson is (drum roll please):
The blade always faces the ball.
That negates most everything you’ve heard about the Mike Austin swing – the forearms pronating, etc.
Second item: Remember the post “It’s an In-Curve”? Notice how the club doesn’t go straight back.
It faces the ball but moves in a circular path. That negates half of the other incorrect information out there about the Mike Austin swing.
Don’t believe it. Here’s the legendary Mike Austin himself.
Note too, the importance of the pivot. That’s why we have spent a lot of time on it.
Mike goes right back to it in teaching the action of the blade.
