Speaker 1: Bobby Lopez here and today we're gonna talk about the three greatest lies of all time, keep a stiff left arm, keep your head still and I'm from the government I'm here to help you.
None of those are true.
Benny Crenshaw, where'd his head go? Not only back but it also went up.
All right, now, watch this.
We're gonna pick on the man.
Cause I think there were stories about Jack Grout grabbing his hair.
Surprised he still has it.
Now this guy right here's won 18 majors, I've won 18 Cuban sandwiches on Southwest Eighth Street in Miami.
Someone's gonna say "look man, you're full of crap!" Yeah, I might be but I'll tell you what, the video doesn't lie your honor, this is indisputable evidence, watch what's going to happen.
He's gonna pull right out of the stinking spine angle, do everything we tell you not to do, look at this.
Now watch, watch where his head's gonna go.
He's backing up.
Why? Because this left shoulder better get on top of that ball in a hurry.
Otherwise, he's off sides.
Look at this.
As if that's not enough you look at a couple guys like Bernhard Langer and also Gene Sauers and their head goes backwards.
I want your head to go backwards.
There it goes.
Why? Well, he's gotta get the tip of the left shoulder to the ball because if his left shoulder anywhere past that golf ball he's, off sides!
Now, you've got a couple of ways to go about this.
You know, you've got to think always ...
that's one thing that kills me, so many people they look at something they go "well, it has to be like this!" No, it don't.
I mean, Bernhard's is not just like Nicklaus' but they're very similar and why? Because, I know, Bernhard and I used to play golf together when we were, he was about 16 and I was 23.
We grew up in the Nicklaus era, we all wanted to copy Nicklaus.
Don't you think? So, that's why we went in that direction.
Same thing with Gene Sauers.
Nicklaus was this big hero.
We all had to have a hero of some kind.
Here's you know who.
There he is.
Let's put a line by his head.
Where does he end up? Tipping the left shoulder to the ball on impact.
You can't put your head on top of the golf ball and have your left shoulder on top of the golf ball at the same time.
It just ain't happening.
It ain't happening.
So, now, here's a couple ways you can go about this.
Cause they don't all do it the same way.
Here's John Riegger, pretty long hitter on the senior tour.
He's a big guy, it makes sense, he should hit it far.
Watch what he does.
He makes a big move back here in the first place.
Right off the bat.
Where Nicklaus and Langer, as examples, they stay steady here and then they back up on the way down.
Bottom line is though after impact their bodies tilted this way ...
his body's tilted this way.
That's the bottom line.
Whether you go there, stay there and swing ...
let's look at Benny, he lifts up and out of the spine angle a little bit here, see? Now watch, he stays back there.
What does he get? Tip of the left shoulder to the ball at impact, look at the tilt in his body.
So, whether you keep your head still on the way back and then you back up on the way down or whether you go back on the back on the back swing, and then keep it there while you come down, who cares, the bottom line is ...
here's where the misnomer was ...
all this information keep your head still like that was gonna help your golf swing, no.
It was get your left shoulder lined up with the ball on impact would've been a better thing to tell them.
You think? If you're not sure where you are, at impact, pick up your cell phone or whatever you've got, take a video of your swing and send it to me and I'll do a complete analysis and I won't charge you a penny.
Well, you've got to send me a Cuban sandwich we'll call it.
Bobby Lopez at quickfixgolf.com just send it to me and do a front view and a down view.
Just one swing each, don't send me 50 swings and then I'll take a look at it and send it right back to you and give you a complete analysis and attach a drill for you to do.
