I wonder if Mindy would have changed his swing to fit the modern 45" graphite shafted 460cc drivers? The clubs of his day were heavy steel shafted, shorter, smaller wooden headed (by FAR), lower COR, type tools...do the tools influence the swing...I'd have to say yes but I don't know how

I'm not talking great change...polevaulters had to do something a little different going from bamboo poles to fiberglass to whatever they're using now...you would throw a 12oz. ball a little differently than a 10lb. ball, even if the same size...that's all then again, maybe not...Blake did talk about the golfswing evolving and he didn't really say his current technique was the final word...You have a great swing but you're not pure Blake because you are using the golf swing of the future with clubs from the future (from when he wrote his books

Having recently switched from perimeter weighted irons to blades and seen my game improve I vote no.

I agree that irons haven't changed that much...pure strike is a pure strike...although blades are a little more forgiving than the old longer hoseled types from the 1960-early 80's...I'm using some pretty forgiving mac v-foil blades now and love them...but I don't swing them like my driver...I'd say the modern pro swings harder with his driver (percentage wise, closer to all out) than the pros of yore who used less forgiving equipment and always talked about swinging 80* power...

I think my elbow would snap if I threw a 12lb. shotput the same way I threw a baseball ...I think Mindy foresaw changes in equipment and left room for small adjustments...his philosophy and value system stays the same...you are a perfect example of his vision and your technique is fitted to your modern implements...his future is our present

I just don't want anybody to feel they have to be exact...unless you're using a 43" steel shafted 230cc wood headed driver...then the angles would be the same

HP, As soon as I say MacGregor clubs are passe, you're praising their V-foils. I'd have to say those are for a low-handicap player, like you. SD

There was a BIG change from bamboo poles to fiberglass. Pole vaulting became more like gymnastics.

SD, I grew up in the 1960s when Mac was very good...I must have 10 sets or so from 61' on so take my praise with a grain of salt...MacGregor has tried to make a comeback, I don't know if the direction they're taking will work...I love the irons..the driver is supposed to be very forgiving, long, and Loud...
