In the '89 Open video, he looks very similar to Norman in his leg action and follow through.

He was definitely a left sided player. Had a lot of lateral slide, and of course that caused some spine tilt and back out. Greg had a lateral slide of the left hip also. In both cases, I would guess the miss was right. I remember Norman hitting that 5 iron in the gallery right at the Masters. Actually, Calc's swing looks pretty good in the second video for a guy who was never know for his fitness regime.

Yeah, that was Norman's miss - the big block to the right. Hurt him in the '86 Masters and I think the '84 and '86 US Opens.

Here's an interesting video of Greg Norman talking about the swing. Very much in line with ABS principles. This was taken as part of a demonstration series for Tathata Golf.

The audio is a little shoddy in places but Greg is able to get a lot of his important points across.

Norman with some good goods there for sure. Visualizing the shot is so important, but I also think visualizing the swing needed to accomplish that flight is important too. When I'm not farting around with tinkering, my best swings are made, and over with, before I even step into, or find, my address orientation- I actually sense and see my entire motion beforehand while standing by the bag, then my body just kind of finds where it needs to be in order to do what it saw in my minds-eye. :shock:
