    And you're leaving out the fact that Stadler on his backswing he only comes back about 80% that has to caulk his wrist at the top of his swing to get the club over his head and with the golfer on the right he's so skinny and he Cox's back foot back a tiny bit that he can actually get the club behind his body in between the shoulder blade in between the shoulder I'm sorry because he's so skinny it's a fact that if you're thin your body twist better that's why young people twist better than old people I don't know why you put this misleading video out

    I have wide shoulders I'm 6 ft 2 and I'm about 210 lb but I have broad shoulders and I find it very difficult to do a one piece takeaway unless I put my back foot back a lot then I can get a nice in to out swing and when I say I put my back foot out I mean I step it back in my swing not away from the target but behind me

    You can be a big person that is lite on your feet! A key to golf swing. I am 175 lbs and in great shape but gravity glues those lbs to the earth like lead! So the golf swing is difficult to perform , this prompted me to try and develop a move similar to Moe Norman's. I am working around lack of natural timing and rhythm.

    I am VERY heavy set and recently (last week) discovered the LAWs (leverage, arc and width player) of golf from Mike Adams. I am 110% a width player who has always taken the vertical swing route, until now. I would appreciate your take on Mike Adams recommendations and insights for width players, and how it ties in with your rotary swing thoughts. The width player fundamentals are working for me.

    A couple questions: As a muscular/big guy, I use an upright swing, but my elbow breaks down a lot. Any suggestions to help stop that? Also, is there a golf school that caters to big guys (or at least understands us more than average pros)?

    For the most part, the only thing that matters is taking a slow smooth back swing, a smooth transition, and a smooth acceleration of the club on the downswing. A PGA pro is in complete control of their balance and have complete control of the club. This allows a PGA pro, to successfully complete many types of shots. Most high handicappers do a backswing too fast, have poor tempo, and loses control of their balance and lose control of the club, as soon as they reach the transition at the top, due to way to fast of a back swing, and they never recover their balance or control or awareness of the club and never recover (almost impossible. one in a million by blind luck, recovers). So Craig Stadler is a great golfer because he is in complete control of his balance and complete control of the club, and his body simply reacts in a way to maintain already established balance and control of his club. I know it sounds to simple what I am saying, but it is true, and most Golf Instructors do not emphasize the importance of a slow back swing, a smooth transition, and a smooth downswing acceleration. Most Golf Instructors skip ahead of the most important things, and start talking about other aspects of the game, that can not be accomplished with smooth tempo and complete control of balance and control of the club. Each individual has a maximum speed that can swing back and through, until they reach a little and lose control of their balance and club control. I suppose the lower your handicap is, the more you can experiment with faster tempo and faster back swing and faster downswing. I kind of doubt it, but I guess there are a few pros with fast backswing, jerky transitions and very fast downswings, but I believe they are in the minority rather than the majority. For me as soon as I swing the club back fast, then I wind up like a cork screw at the top, lose my balance completely during the transition, my balance, and any hope of hitting a solid, accurate, golf shot. In theory I should be able to wind up like a corkscrew and find a way to have a smooth transition, by just relaxing my body and allowing my club, arms, and the rest of my body, before starting my downswing, but I have not tried this out yet, as of yet, because my slow back swing and slow transition at the top has been working so good for me. I suppose this year now that I know how to keep my balance during my entire swing, I could experiment with a faster backswing, and see if I can still keep my balance, by achieving a smooth transition with a fast swing back and through.

    Regards

    i found a remedy for big golfers, go to my channel and watch the 2nd golf vid. ask questions and I can help you. btw I'm bigger than daly and sattler and any other big set pro golfer and figured it out and I can get a full swing to maintain power, balance, and accuracy

  8. fluffnstuff91

    if anyone wants they can view my swing. I have one vid on my channel, it's full speed no slow down. and I can explain better than most since I'm bigger than most of you "big guys. I'm about 385 ish. I also figured out how to maintain power as a big guy as well if any big people would like to know

    there should be more vids to help heavy set golfers. And for the fellow fat people like myself, a big necessity is weight distribution and weight transfer. I'm a big guy and started golfing recently and drive it easily between 250 and 300 consistantly. the main issue for heavy set golfers are the irons.

    Hi Clay. At 275 lbs, I am a big golfer but average height. I have wide meaty shoulders. If you see my swing at  /watch?v=wpENfhdhRxs  my left shoulder turns my head to the right. I have always had a problem with swaying in my take away (although at impact my head is same as at address). Today I tried your more upright swing – I feel less restricted. Have to put a little more weight toward my toes. I would like to progress in this.  ..if I can reduce the swaying.  Thanks, Bob
