PostSubject: New Swing?   Tue Apr 09, 2013 9:12 am

Anyone ever look in to the Mike Austin swing? I have done a little bit of looking in to it and am thinking about possibly trying it out. There isn't a lot on it and I was wondering if anyone else has ventured down that path. For those of you who don't know who he is, he set the guiness world record for longest drive in a pga tournament with 515 yards. He was in his 64 when he did it Shocked

I have never heard of it or him. But 515 yards is some bomb.

I personal wouldn't try a completely new swing. I'm not trying to be rude but your not pro or a low handicap and you can't dedicate almost every day to grooving a new swing. Think about this. It takes Tiger Woods 1 1/2 to 2 years to finally make a new swing his. And he can work on it for 8+ hours a day.

The principals of a different/new swing might sound great when reading or hearing about it but you have to literally learn how to get out of your old ways for however long.

You should find a PGA pro and have them help you. A good PGA pro will work with the swing you have and NOT try to get you to use a swing they use/like(if that makes sense). Before I started working with mine I was all over the place. I only had a drive of about 250 yards. After working with him I started getting an Average drive of 280 yards. And my misses are nothing of what they use to be.

This is just my opinion.

515 yards! Shit that is some distance. Especially for the equipment they were using back then

You should get some help from a PGA instructor. I did years ago and glad I made the choice to do so.

well I am self taught at this point. My best round is 93 and I have only been playing for less than a year. So my idea is if I do try to change up my swing now is the time to do it when I haven't really gotten to the point of my swing being ingrained. I know what you are saying though and have thought about lessons but I don't exactly have the time or money for that. And I'm not exactly trying to get to the Tour just win a couple bucks off my closest friends Very Happy

Pick up these two books. I have had mine for years and I refer back to them all the time. They great to help build a strong foundation for a good swing

I will check them out...I had a friend tell me to look at The Golfing Machine too. From what I see with that it is really in depth and just thumbing through and not fully understanding will end up hurting more than helping. But I think that is true with almost any type of instructional book.

Most golf instructors, from what I have noticed, base there teaching off of what both of those books have to say....IMO
