Thing Haven't Changed Much
26 September 2009 | by (Arroyo Grande, California) – See all my reviews

Famed golfer Bobby Jones gives a taught, nine minute lesson on how to swing a golf club. Couched in a simple history lesson on golf, this short moves along very quickly. After it is explained that the modern game was essentially started by men whacking a feather-filled bag with a small hockey stick (I wonder if they had a name for a 24 shot bogey back then), Jones then gives his own coherent ideas on the down swing.

Things haven't changed much since Bobby's day, as far as form goes. He explains eloquently, with slow motion visuals of his swing, what to do, and not do. I don't think Tiger Woods could explain it any better. The equipment has surely improved, but apparently, a good down swing has not.

This is an extremely well made instructional short for 1933, considering that "talkies" had only been around for a few years.
