My Golf Swing in 1972

My Golf Swing in 1972

OK you can laugh!  Go ahead laugh!  The picture below was taken around 1972 by Dick Farley of Swing’s the Thing Golf Schools.  Dick was the poor soul that hired me to be the Director of Golf at Andalucia C.C. in Marbella Spain.  I was home in Miami visiting and taking a break while getting ready to start playing European Tour events and Dick gave me a lesson.  Dick took this photo of my golf swing with his shiny new sequence camera that would take eight pictures in sequence.  State of the art back in those days.

Here’s the down line view.  It’s no wonder I hit the ball so much further back then.  I took a BIG rip at it.  Let this be a lesson to all my senior golfing friends.  We just don’t have the flexibility we used to have.  There is still a lot we can do to get back some of that “zippity dooda” in our golf swing and I will revel those insider secrets in our one day golf school for seniors on Wednesday October 1st. 

Yes there are some techniques you can use to re-gain some of that lost distance as well as smarter decisions on short game, (we’re suppose to be older and wiser?).
