Ok guys and gals. Let’s get going on the backswing and the path of the hands and arms.
I am pretty sure this is my second day with Mike Austin. As you can hear, he gave me a hefty dose of his “enthusiasm”.
I took the heat, now you can learn from the comfort of your home.
The bottom line here is that unlike a lot of teachings (and many incorrectly teaching Mike Austin’s swing), the clubhead and arms do NOT go straight back on a line from the ball. They move on an “in curve”. This is crucial to a circular motion.
Hope this helps.
Happy New Year and thanks for all of your support this year. We’ve got some great things in store for your game next year.

Like many of you, I watched quite a bit of the U.S. Open yesterday. Two comments of Johnny Miller regarding Dustin Johnson caused me to pause. I’ll have to paraphrase the comments, but they went something like this:
1. “He’s a real solid player, even with that wrist bow.”
2.”Look at that old time leg action – like Weiskopf.”
Funny how today’s commentators view swing features that differ than that presently taught under the “modern approach” (flat left wrist, lower body steady with upper body torquing against the lower) as swing flaws. Here is a guy leading the Open and launching it over 300 yards. Perhaps that bow and leg action are far from swing flaws. Perhaps they are key factors as to why Dustin can stripe it huge distances under pressure.
I know one person who would love the bow in the left hand and that leg action – Mike Austin.
