I have a little unique move in my swing. I haven’t seen anyone else do it. I don’t think it’s wrong, per se, but it is unique. On the backswing, I let my head rotate with my torso, then when its time to start the downswing, my head quickly rotates back forward, like it was at address. It seems that when I try to keep my head from rotating at all, the dreaded OTT move shows up, and when I let it rotate, it doesn’t show up. I hit a lot of great shots today letting it rotate. Like I said, I have never seen anyone else with this move, but a lot of great players, have their own way of doing things. If it works right. Maybe this is an important part of my swing. Besides getting rid of the OTT move, this quirk in my swing, also gives me a lower ballflight. I think that’s because I’m coming in a lot shallower. I was a bit surprised at how straight many of my shots were today.
When you look at the PGA tour, a lot of great players have unique moves. Look at Jim Furyk, JB Holmes, Camilo Villegas, Lee Trevino, Jack Nickalus, etc. I don’t think my goal should be to have a text book swing, I think my goal should be to have the best swing, that I can have, based on my body type and what what works best.
