For Everyone That Says Baseball Ruined Their Golf Swing
Every time I encounter a golfer, I hear the same thing “My swing is bad because I used to play baseball” or some variation on that.
I would like to set the record straight (with video evidence) that baseball could be benefiting your swing and it might be one’s stubbornness or unwillingness to practice that is effecting your swing negatively.
All harsh tones aside, on to the videos:
This first one is a David Leadbetter drill where he uses a baseball style swing and gradually moves his swing plane down toward the ball in an effort to get a more comfortable feeling when swinging a club bent over.
Secondly we have a video with Jeff Ritter comparing a golf swing with The Kid, Ken Griffey Jr.
There you go, evidence that baseball can in fact help, not hurt your golf game
