From GlobalGolfPost comes a recent interview of Lee Trevino by Ron Green, Jr.

I choked as much as the next guy, but my swing for some reason would withstand pressure more than a flipper. I was a blocker. A blocker can withstand more pressure.

I could listen to Lee Trevino talking about golf clubs for hours on end.

What a fascinating personality. I would have loved to see him on tour in his prime.

Lee's comment at 30:41 mark - "Speed comes from the left shoulder. The faster you can move your left shoulder out of there...the more lag/speed".

Isn't this one of the core concepts of ABS? I'm sure I've heard Lag preach about this before.

Trevino is always filled with funny stuff, and yes the left shoulder comment by him is correct, keeping the shaft pinned to rotation, which Lag refers to frequently. The gear discussion was good too about bending a shaft on the run. :lol:- Trevino also used to mill wedge faces to the extent when the face was set wide open the grooves would be 90* to the start line, so conversely when the face was set 'normally' at address the grooves would be at an angle.

Good stuff NRG :)

I'm starting to think Ben who?. The drop is so pronounced and from the inside, and how it eventually hooks up to rotation, with Trevino's set up it feels like the shaft gets perilously close to the trail thigh around P3 because the clubhead is not getting in front of the hands. Pretty cool stuff, enjoying Trevino a lot, smart guy. Found this, what Lag talks about but don't know how to embed like YT. Any of you tech giants know how to download video from Golf Channel to PC. I tried some download platforms like Keep Vid, and a few others, but can't seem to crack it from Golf Channel. Where the hell is IOZ when needed. :lol:

Came across this video of a clinic Lee and John Daly recently did.

Some great stuff in there. He talks about accelerating the club so that the club head is not out racing the left hand, among other things.

It really is true that Trevino doesn’t get near enough credit for his swing. I was reading posts about him on Golfwrx and man the disrespect is unreal.

This year I started aligning down the target line at address. I’d get in position to hit the ball straight .... then move both my feet an inch or two directly to the left and then place the club face in front of the ball. I’d then move the club face behind the ball by slightly rotating my torso. I’d get a real sense of the inside quadrant of the ball. I would be totally swinging from the inside out which was great because I would crush draws and feel my shoulder rip high at PV5. For a poor player like myself ... the feeling was incredible. The easily forecasted problem is that sometimes my hands would close too much and I’d hit a duck hook ruining my score. That fear can then cause me to try to prolong the inside out feel and hit blocks. Nonetheless I had great stretches.

I genuinely want to keep the left side out of play though!
I experimented with the same setup but not releasing the club with a high right shoulder at PV5. I’d push the ball and keep the angle in my left forearm and left wrist flat post impact down the line which would have my right shoulder low through impact and post impact. Instead of my torso being completely vertical at the end .... it would be tilted on an angle to the right at around 1 or 2 o’clock.

I was hitting push fades or at worst very slight push draws for around 100 balls in a row.


Anyways hopefully I’m on the right track. I can see how this method isn’t as powerful as a high right shoulder at PV5 and how it can possibly be damaging to the spine.

All the posts in this thread seemed true from my observations.
