Here are a few more pictures from Howie Alter. You might want to frame this one:
This is very special photograph. Truly amazing. Here is what I love about this picture –
- Moe’s trail foot on ground, slightly rolled in with heel on ground
- Lead knee slightly flexed (stability)
- Right arm extended (after impact)
- How me maintains the posture of his body through the ball
This is the purity of technique Moe so often talked about. Seeing photos like this truly inspires me. It makes me want to practice to perfection.
I love this one for swing plane. Just look at the wrist and hand position – what I call “hand action”. Look how the back of the lead hand matches the clubface. Check out his overlapping grip. Many people think Moe always had a 10-finger grip. He actually changed his grip to 10-finger in 1994.
What can you learn from these pictures?
If there is one thing that helped me most – it was understanding the Moe Norman model. Looking at pictures and video helped me see Moe’s techniques so I could then apply them to my own golf swing. This is a very important step.
I would love to hear your comments on what you see.
