  1. I’m ambidextrous , I can perform each swing, one fades the other draws,
    clubhead speed driver 117, irons 90-105 (depending on club)… Could I get
    more speed if I tried doing both at the same time.

    Is that even possible? Or do they contradict?

  2. Great video! Very simply explained.
    Would I be right in thinking that a hitter should play with a squarer or
    more open club face to stop left shots, ie toe up at p2 and p6?
    Were a swinger would be better with the club face slightly toe down at p2
    and p6?
    Thanks for your time and uploading this video.

    It’s perfectly acceptable to feel that in your left arm as well, even Mr.
    Kelly said there is no one perfect swing.

  4. How do I know if I am swinger or hitter? what about driver? Swinging better
    for driver?

    Most pro’s are swingers, easier to control!

  6. As I get older I find the ” hitting’ motion is easier on my old joints.

    great explanation! Just began studying Golf Machine and you did an
    excellent job showing the differences.

  9. My father as new golfer struggle with the pivot action and he flip at
    impact. do you recommend any drill to sync left arm and pivot. I’m teaching
    him to swing as you recommend for beginner.

  10. Are golfers purely one or the other? I pull with PP4 but keep PP3 firmly in
    place; I don’t push with the right elbow, however.

  11. I reakky like the video. I am having a difficult time breaking a habit of
    using my right hand just prior to impact causing a bent left wrist with my
    right palm facing the sky. Can you suggest any drills to help me. My handle
    is in line with my belt buckle one frame earlier than where it should be on
    video. Thanks

    I prefer to call it striking the ball as opposed to hitting the ball.

    swinging vs hitting

  15. i think annika was more of a hitter she uses a lot of right arm

  16. Tiger woods – a hitter. Ernie els – a swinger

    @hptpcl1 It really depends on your intent at the transition and getting
    your swing on film with a swing coach which we can do for you if you send
    us your swing. Generally a swing will function better with a driver, hope
    this helps.

  18. Gravity always play and affect to the swing,as of the clubhead weight. The
    centripetal reaction will happened, with or without the gravity.

    Great video and good explanation. One thing i am struggling with is that
    according to the golfing machine the left arm should be passive and
    inactive and controlled by the right arm motion? If that is the case and we
    feel we pull down through the shot to keep the handle in front then surely
    that pulling motion is coming from the left arm feeling active? Thanks
