You, too, can have a 'Symple' swing, sort of like Brian Gay's
One thing that struck me watching Brian Gay lap the field at the Verizon Heritage Classic at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, S.C., this weekend was how simple his swing is.
A couple of times during CBS’ telecast, David Feherty talked about how Gay has a swing that is a little short on distance but very high on accuracy. One of the reasons is because there are very few moving parts.
I don’t know about you, but I’d trade a little distance for that kind of accuracy.
With that said, you might want to check out a story I wrote on the Symple Power Swing by Simple Golf over on GolfInstruction.com if you’re looking for help. Now this isn’t Gay’s swing, but there are some similarities, one being the limited lower body movement.
The Symple Swing has an unusual grip with the left thumb in the 3 o’clock position, but I believe the Symple Swing is fundamentally sound and truly simpler than many methods.
Having tried it, I didn’t really see a decrease in distance like I have with some other “alternative methods.” The Simple Golf folks also promise you can learn this many times faster than traditional golf, and they support it quite well with constant email tips and drills.
