I'm going to invent my own golf swing. After a month shooting high seventies, low eighties I have suddenly learned to hit a shank. I can shank with Blake, I can shank with SA. I can shank with CG. I mean, I'm really good at it. It's a really interesting little shot. Just shoots off to the right and skippity hops along like crazy. I can hit it in all situations at will. I don't even have to think about it.

So, I am going to invent a golf swing that is all my own and owes nothing to any system. Book later.

Your symptom of 'shoots off to the right' reminds me of my 'fatal flaw'. See my response to Duke's complaint of shanking. SD

a practitioner of a particular method of swinging? Only two shanks today also. I've decided they are a sign of progress because my scores are good.

You are making progress I've also had occasional bouts of "lateral" shots...especially if he ball is below my feet. A golfing buddy/instructor told me to keep more weight on my heels in those situations.

I have dabbled with just about all the SA swings and Blake. For the last few days I've been using Moe's grip and SA setup. I'm trying to look like this at address, with the club shaft in line with the trail forearm.

do not open for me. So I don't know what you are trying to look like.
I assume, uh, Moe? The advice on stopping laterals sounds kind of like Jackie Burke, seniors advice to Ike Handy: "Just swing the club more inside the ball."

I played my best round ever with a similar image. Couldn't duplicate it or even close. There must be a missing piece of information that lies within that image but is not readily apparent.

From where Moe's eyes have to be he would see the fingertips of his lead hand (fairly weak). His lead thumb is separated from his first forefinger knuckle, not pinched into it as commonly taught. If you look in a mirror and duplicate what you see there I would be interested in knowing how it performs on course.

is pretty much what I am trying. The lead hand is extremely weak and the trail hand is strong. I've taken a respite from Blake in order to get a little more upright stance (easier on my back).

I must say the 3 days using this have been very encouraging. I fight the hooks/pulls, and the weak lead hand seems to help. The strong trail hand still gives me plenty of lag and powerful feeling strikes on the ball.

What happens if you use that grip with a Blake setup and swing? I ask because the grip turns the elbows into each other which would appear to facilitate Blake.

Am I missing something here? I can't see any connection with Blake. Ten years ago I made the fatal conclusion that the SA swing had something to do with the Blake swing. It took me some years to get on the right track. If you think the Norman grip has anything to do with Blake, please stick to the SA forum.
