Manuel de la Torre Golf Swing

This film was shot in 1990, when de la Torre was 69 years old.

It is so smooth and fluid–a model for you to follow.

BTW, this swing takes ~0.9 second from takeaway to impact. That’s really fast, but he makes it look so elegant nonetheless.

And notice that he never takes a divot. I don’t think he disturbs even one blade of grass.

So you want to know how to swing a golf club? Just do this.

  1. Yeah — I can relate to that “sweet swing” — looks a lot like me — in the video in my mind, at least. On the course, not so much!

  2. It looks like his left wrist is cupped from start to finish? Can we assume his left wrist is straight at impact? It’s impossible to tell in the video. Also, thank you for posting this.

    1. I believe the straight left wrist at impact is an indicator (a result, not a cause) that the hands have led the clubhead into the ball. Chasing that detail on its own can lead to trouble.

      1. Thanks for your reply. I’d like to see his swing face on but haven’t been able to find any.
