    1. +Erykvonkeith Two of the best swings in the game. This is what the rise in teaching with new technology will help with in the future in my opinion. A lot of the young players will have nearly flawless technique on tour. Everyone will bomb it and hit it straight too. Will be fun to watch golf over the next few years! Hope your doing great! ~Clay

  1. I need to go out and buy some white pants and a blue shirt. Should get me a few extra yards! Great video as usual.

  2. I think Jason’s ball position is perfect because he will catch it on the upswing. However, Rory’s ball position seems a little too far forward making it harder for him to square the club face. In other words, it looks like Rory is reaching for the ball as opposed to Jason swing which looks more natural. I don’t know. What do you think about that Clay?

    1. +God of War Great point. I would say Jasons is “stock” and would give a pretty level angle of attack. Rory’s is fine too. Would give a positive angle of attack. You would just have to align the body a bit to the right so that as the club traveled back up the arc, it will be square rather than left. It will result in higher launch, less spin, and a bit more distance (few yards). I would use Day’s 90% of the time and Mcilroys if there was a wide open hole and wanted to try to hammer one! ~Clay

    2. I’d say their swings are almost identical, two beauties of a swing. Jason’s might be a bit more orthodox (in the ball positioning like you said, among other things). Rory moves his head more (down just before he hits it and then up at the point of release), which I think gives him a bit more length off the tee but also less accuracy.

  3. So we direct downward pressure when hitting before the ball on the driver and after the ball with irons

    1. +BENNYBLANCO FROM DA BRONX Before with both. The driver is farther up in the stance, but other than that, is basically the same as an iron swing. Play well! ~Clay

  4. NONSENSE!! He just compared 2 totally different swings & tried to make them seem alike.
    E.g. notice that Jason’s shoulder turn is almost horizontal (2-plane swing) vs Rory’s shoulder plane (1-planer). Notice that their left shoulder positions against their chins are very different throughout their backswing.
    That was just 1 of the many differences.
    Also, take note of Jason’s high follow thru vs Rory’s FLATTER follow thru.

    1. He never said they were the same. He is comparing key parts of their swings that most good players do very well even if they have very different swings.

    2. +Jared Buck What’s the point of comparing apples & oranges?? Yes there are some similarities… eg. they are both fruits… but it’s pointless

    3. I mean you can make the argument that there is no point in comparing anything. It really depends what the goal is. If the goal in comparing apples and oranges is to show what makes them both fruit well then there is definitely a point in comparing them. With that in mind, the point in comparing these two swings is to find what things they do similarly that produce good golf swing.

      Furthermore I don’t think you actually listened to the video because he is talking about the 5 points he believes make a good golf swing and using their swings as illustration. If you had listened to the video, the point of this comparison would have been intuitive.

    4. Totally different swings is the NONSENSE!Very much alike and hitting all the right positions! Clay is an excellent teacher and knows what he is talking about.

    1. Haha, I like it. If a player has good mechanics, that is the end goal. Just let it fly! Play well! ~Clay

  5. Thank’s Clay, your videos are helpful, i play better since i subscribed you and learn from your video

    1. Hi Ardi
      Thank you for your comment. We’re glad your game is improving. Keep up the good work!

  6. Hi Clay, re the shoulder angle and head positioned behind the ball; would this swing be similar to a mid-iron swing too? I am struggling with “chicken wing” and perhaps spine angle is my key issue where I feel like I don’t have enough space at impact, hence my left arm feels trapped and just not enough extension at release. I video myself all the time on the range and just wanted to hear your thoughts? I slice my drive a fair bit too. Cheers

    1. Hi Mike, it would be similar but the head and shoulders wouldn’t be as far behind the ball because the ball is played further back in the stance for irons. Usually the chicken wing is caused by the hands racing out in front of the body. It’s likely that your hips are pretty square at impact. You want them to be about 45 degrees open. Here is a great video for you: https://topspeedgolf.com/vault/how-to-clear-your-hips-in-the-downswing/. Let me know if you have any further questions. Play well ~ Quentin | TSG Instructor

    1. Hi Rich, I would have to say that I agree with you. I could watch Rory swing all day. Both of them are world #1 swings though and I would kill to have either of them. Play well ~ Quentin | TSG Instructor

  7. I have always found it interesting that the best athletic performances are generally the most aesthetically pleasing. Jim Furyk would be one exception but in any sport, the best technique is generally the most aesthetically pleasing.

    1. Hi Craig, I would agree with that to a certain extent. I could watch Furyk all day though 🙂 Play well ~ Quentin | TSG Instructor

  8. Question for Clay: If I try to keep the spine tilt “still” (quiet) while still extending my left arm away from the body, I feel a lot of resistance. If you have a healthy spine, should you feel this?

    1. Hi M Raisor, you need to rotate about your spine. It’s not going to be perfectly still. You just don’t want it leaning toward the target at the top because you’ll likely fall away in the downswing. Just make sure you are freeing up your hips and allowing your shoulders to rotate about your spine just like you say Day and McIllroy in this video. I hope that helps. Play well ~ Quentin | TSG Instructor

    1. Hi Steve, the more loft you have, the less compression you have on the golf ball and you’ll also have more spin. You want to actually use the least amount of loft you can control. If you hit up on the ball a lot and have control of your ball flight then you can play a lower lofted driver and get more distance with less spin. Hope you’re playing great! ~ Quentin | TSG Instructor
