Here's what I see in Claude's swing video:

(1) a very controlled, compact swing, (2) vertical/upright backswing with lead arm coming inside target line only slightly, (3) feet firmly on the ground throughout with trail heel lifting just a bit at the end, and (4) lower body goes first in downswing.

Claude says he only recently adopted the open stance and his collegue at Beaconsfield Club, Don Hachey, still employs Blake's original square stance. I'm keen to see a face-on view of Claude's swing to observe where his trail elbow is at impact and to get a second perspective on clubface squareness. Is Claude's clubface square in terms of Mindy's concept of squareness? SD

Can you show this in a format that would allow dragging
the cursor thru a slo-mo? I would love to see the swing
at progressive positions. This swing is the closest I
have seen so far to Blake's own.

I wonder if he can adapt the action to hit a ball that
lies below his feet? What adjustments must be made?

Claude,

Great looking swing. You feet look really close together. How tall are you?

Hi CD,

I don't know how to do that. Perhaps someone else can?

I'm 5'9''.On the video, I was using a 7 iron. I like my feet to be closer together with my short iron. My stance was wider when I was using the square stance. For some reasons, my balance is better with the open stance and I do not feel to be as wide.

Thank you for your valuable input

You said you are 5'-9" tall.
How old are you, what do you weigh, how much carry do you get with your driver and 3 iron. Where I play golf you need to carry the driver 225 yds to clear the waste area off the tee box on some holes and I don't think the reflex swing will give me that carry distance.

Why I am asking these questions is that I have good success with my version of the reflex swing , but only with the higher irons. My drivng and long irons are the problem. If I could get some decent distance with the driver and long irons I might go back to the method. Currently I am part CG and Single Axis.

Do you have any suggestions for distance ball striking with the driver?

Hi Bdog, I am using a linux operating system. Cannot get the video to work. I get a frame with Claude at the top of the swing and then the still picture just flashes on and off. Tried on my wifes windows explorer(win98) with the same results.Is it possible that our computers are to slow? Regards duke

When you are changing for a totally different swing, you have to expect some lost of distances at first. In most cases, the distances with the short irons will not vary much, but as the club gets longer some distances lost are more noticable.

If with your old swing you were able to carry at least 225 yards with the driver, the reflex swing will allow you to do the same. You have to slowly train your body to fall into the exact positions in order for the swing to work.

I will be posting by next week different drills and exercises that I use daily. I use them to train my body to FEEL the exact positions. It takes many months of training for the body to learn and memorize these positions. If you have the time and dedication, you will eventually succeed and become a better player. It will be a very frustrating learning process because your game will get worst for a while but you have to be persistent.

I first learned with the square stance and then the open stance. The open stance version takes a much longer time to learn because the hips have to change position quit a bit throughout the swing and it is very difficult for the back muscles to adapt. Once your positions are improving, you can really start feeling the dragging effect of the club through impact.

Don't you just love computers

You need a flash player installed. Also,that is a fairly large video,so if you are on dial-up it could take a few minutes to load before it will play.
