  • About me

    I am a lifelong golfer who started taking lessons with David Leadbetter from age 13-15. This year I devoted to improving my game and have dropped my handicap from 13 to 5 in 8 months. Now, I am working with Martin Ayers, Roger Dunn, and Tim Terwilliger on my swing and I'm really starting to make serious progress.

    Finding Ben Hogan 2 01:07
    Finding Ben Hogan 2
    This is a follow up to the video I made 2 years ago that started my youtube channel. After two long years of hard work, I feel I'm getting pretty darn close to duplicating Hogan's swing. Of course, I will never duplicate his swing perfectly because our bodies, and flexibility are unique to ourselves. However, the overall mechanics can be achieved with some hard work.

    Eyeball I must admit that I enjoyed viewing this comparative video production. A nice film to watch while one sips their morning coffee.

  • Christo Garcia - created a new topic Maximum Driving Distance in the forum.
    I've always thought I was long enough. My smooth swing is about 270, if I really go for it I can get 285 or so with no wind, etc. I was contacted by a gentleman in Knoxville with a long driving program that he wanted me to try. I agreed to seriously do it for as month. He sent me a meter to measure my MPH and I bought his ebook, which is focused on increasing fast-twitch contraction in your swing muscles. I'm also stretching and working out (plyometrics). I have gained 10 MPH in 10 days!...

    Power Driving - Ep. 1
    This is an experiment in long driving that I am undertaking. I'm using a swing radar provided by golfspeed.biz along with a program described by Tom Slagle. I'm going to put my own twist on the program and see how much I can improve my distance over the next month.

    I'm sure Dirters have a lot of thoughts about lag!

    LAG in the Golf Swing
    I made this video hoping to clear up what lag is. I was confused for many years and trying to incorporate the conventional idea of lag into my golf swing was a disaster. Luckily, I have a better understanding of what lag is now. You don't have to create it. It should happen all by itself.

  • Christo Garcia added a new comment on the video Azmat Swing 21.01.12
    You have a nice motion and it looks like you hit the ball well. You do come "over the top" on the downswing, which is very common. The club goes back too the inside and then loops over the top. I would work on 2 things. On the backswing bring the club back more to the outside, and then do not rush the transition to the downswing.
