Watching Video Swings:

  • Don’t look for a “position”, look at in a general Sybervision ** way. Look for similarities and/or differences of areas that may be of interest to you like:
    swing shapes, set-up/address looks, impact areas, swing motions, swing finishes ,etc.
    If your Pro/PGA instructor/me talks about how your arms should swing, look at how a certain player does it and how another may do it. The Tour Pros have wonderful hand-eye-coordination AND they are expert Manipulators of Impact. Your general visualization is more important than some magic position.

  • Understand that different camera angles can make certain positions “appear” a certain way, but are not what you might think you see because of the different angles the video could have been shot at.
    As an example, a camera set for a down-the-target- line will give a position one look, a camera angle down-body-line will give a different look, higher or lower will show another look.
    Video is a great teaching/communication tool, but only within the context of learning a feel that is individual, which is to say …yours.

  • We usually don’t know what kind of shot the players were trying to hit, which can affect its “look”. If the shot the player was trying to produce had a left- to- right shape, or right- to- left shape, that factor could easily affect the player’s different set-ups, hand/arm swing shapes.

    Some swings are taken on a driving range while others are on a golf course during play. The better players, (which all Tour Professionals have to be), always try to hit shots to targets and with some sort of shape to the ball’s flight. That requires “feel” adjustments, which could easily change a look of a swing at that time.

    The Loading Period:

    • The swings “Loading” may take a few seconds to load.

    • Give the page a full load time. Some swings may appear earlier than others, let them load completely. (they will run through a complete swing speed cycle, then stop in "ready still mode" for you to activate with the buttons)

    • If you just can't wait, no big deal, the swing may jump and stall a little at first, but will eventually run smoothly when fully loaded. You will find the next time you view this page, whether going back and forth today or the next day, month, etc. the swings will appear and load MUCH quicker.

      ** SyberVision or CyberVision has been referred to as Muscle Memory Programming, or as often referred to as“Repititous Sensory Stimulation”. Some would say SyberVision could be used as a “dramatic improvement in the quality and consistency of a player”. Basically, a theory based on viewing enough times and you will do it.





  Byron Nelson

There is a reason why the mechanical hitting machine used by today’s equipment manufacturers is called Iron Byron. The human, Byron Nelson was just that, a machine.

I just love watching this swing over and over. How the hands are clearly guiding his body motions throughout the swing. The loose, free hands and arms at address (call it a waggle) are getting ready to direct the body (the Pivot) to deliver the hit through the finish. The drop of the hands on the downswing, the leg/hip action at impact are from a player with an advanced Pivot, witch is to say the hands-club are being driven by the Pivot.

"Swing the club as though you were driving sixty miles an hour on the freeway. Not too fast, but not deathly slow. Once in a while, if the risk isn't great, you can push your swing to seventy, but never go faster than that."
--Byron Nelson

”You should have the feeling that the left foot, left knee, left hip and left shoulder all start the downswing together. This sequence must be carried out smoothly. Don't get too anxious to hit. Don't try to get the downswing started before the backswing is completed."

--Byron Nelson

Byron Nelson had the most incredible streak in golfing history in 1945, when he won 11 consecutive tournaments and a total of 19 tour events. The performance has been disparaged by some because most of the other top professional golfers were serving in World War II.
(Nelson wasn't qualified for military service because he had hemophilia.)


However, that's a simplistic view. For one thing, Nelson's scores would have beaten just about anybody. He averaged 68.33 strokes per round for 31 tournaments that year and, at the Seattle Open, he shot a record 62 for 18 holes and 259, 29 shots under par, for 72 holes.

For another, there were other good golfers playing in 1945. Sam Snead played in 27 tournaments, winning 6; Ben Hogan, discharged from the Army Air Corps, played in 19 and won 4; and Jimmy Demaret and Craig Wood were on the tour for the entire year.

Nelson had established his credentials as a great golfer before the war. He won the U. S. Open in 1939, the PGA Championship in 1940, and the Masters in 1937 and 1942, when he beat Hogan 69-70 in a playoff. By the end of 1945, he had finished in the money in 113 consecutive tournaments.

After winning six more tournaments in 1946, Nelson retired from the tour because of the strain of competition and bought a ranch in Texas. He competed in just a few tournaments a year after that, but tied for second in the 1947 Masters and won the 1955 French Open.

Nelson was named male athlete of the year in 1944, when he won 7 tournaments and averaged 69.67 strokes for 85 rounds, and again after his remarkable 1945 season.

"I don’t feel the iron swing is basically any different than the swing you use with a wood. It changes naturally because an iron is not as long as a wood. You should not consciously try to make any modifications".



Byron Nelson
(b. Feb. 4th, 1912, Ft. Worth, Texas / d. Sept. 26th, 2006)
