Bobby Jones Golf Swing
Duh! Who DOESN’T raise his back heel?! ;-P
mickelson raises the left heel also
Tim Clark does a little bit.
Jones would dominate today just as he did in the 20′s
bubba watson brings his front heel way off the ground
do any modern day golfers raise the left heel at the top of the back swing? seemed to be the norm back then. I cant think of any – harringtons is so minuscule you wont notice it
@rt1jones The Grand Slam in men’s golf is an unofficial concept, having changed over time. In the modern era, The Grand Slam is generally considered to be winning all four of golf’s major championships in the same calendar year. Before The Masters was founded, the national amateur championships of the U.S and the UK were considered majors along with the two national opens and only Bobby Jones has ever completed a grand slam with these. No man has ever achieved a modern grand slam.
@scottishbobsled13 — jones never turned professional, if he was a pro when he achieved the grand slam it wouldnt have been possible to win 2 out of the 4, pros obviously cannot play in the british amateur or the U.S. amateur… and Augusta National was constructed because jones wanted to created the “ultimate” course and hoped to host the U.S. open….
@scottishbobsled13 In the movie “The Legend of Bagger Vance,” I compared Bobby Jones’ swing to this one, and I found one major difference. In the movie, he doesn’t lift his left heel at all. In my humble, opinion, I’d say Hollywood may have erred on this one. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself. Then, report back.

@scottishbobsled13. jones was not a pro golfer he was an amatuer he retired as well not only to be a good husband. But because he won the Grand Slam there was nothing else to do or compete for.
he retired because he had a desease that affected his central nervous system. he also never turned pro by the way.
jones was the only pro golfer to win the grand slam, not the only golfer to win the “career” grand slam, a grand slam is winning all 4 majors in one year. he retired because he wanted to be a good husband, so jones worked at a law firm and would put down his clubs for months at a time, then go win majors without hardly any practice, he crated augusta which was the first course with a “fringe” around the green, so his friends could have a easier more enjoyable time of playing…reasearch?
For a long time instructors taught students to have the feeling you were “sitting” on a bar stool. I always believed we should have been teaching people to feel as though you were “leaning” back on a stool. The last thing you would ever want to do is sit in golf. Sitting will cause the golf club to swing too level to the ground in the downswing, and you will have a tendency to hit the ground behind the golf ball. w w w (dot) golferbreak80 (dot) c0m
bobby jones was one of the best golfers of all time
Bobby Jones is the only one to win the grand slam,not Hogan,Nicklaus,Snead,or tiger……….a golfer would have to win the US Open,US Amateur,British Open, British Amateur, in one year. No Pro Golfer is eligible… Bobby was an amateur his entire career.
An old golf buddy of mine (pro) has a pretty good program out now that guarantees you’ll get under 80 in two weeks. Golferbreak80dotcom
Jones won 62% of the national championships he entered, and he’s not the only golfer to win the grand slam. Player, Nicklaus, Hogan, Sarazan and Woods have too. He’s the only Golfer to win the Slam in one year. He did not retire because he said golf was low class. He didn’t want to continue going through the strain of championship golf, and wanted to live a more normal life. My goodness, people do some research.
He won 62% of all golf tournaments he entered. It’s easy to see why he’s the only golfer to win the Grand Slam… and then retired at 28 years old.
