Mark Wilson Golf Swing Analysis

In January, Mark Wilson drained a 10 foot birdie putt on the final hole of the 2012 Humana Challenge (formerly the Bob Hope Classic) to notch his third victory in only a 1 year span!

The victory over runner-ups Johnson Wagner, John Mallinger, and long hitting Robert Garrigus marked Wilson's 5th career PGA Tour victory.

Mark Wilson golferThe 37 year old Wisconsin native turned pro in 1996 and has won a stunning 11.9 million dollars on Tour. Until his 3rd and 4th victories last season, he was the type of player that flew under the radar and was hardly a household name in the sport. That has all changed now.

At 5'8" and 145 lbs, Wilson doesn't make his living busting 300+ yard drives and hitting into the greens with pitching wedges like Garrigus and the other long guns. Even so, Mark averaged a very respectable 280 yards driving average (ranked 124/191) in 2011.

Where he excels is in the accuracy or "precision" numbers. Mark is typically top 20 in driving accuracy, and top 8 in greens hit in regulation (he hits 80% of greens from the fairway!).

In the young 2012 season his total combined numbers have him beating the majority of the players on Tour in scoring average and he is already ranked 2nd in the 2012 FedEx Cup points standing. He also continues to "play his way" on to the US Ryder Cup team, which is every Tour players dream.

When watching Mark Wilson hit balls, it is immediately apparent he has a powerful, "body powered" swing. It's interesting that players that are smaller in stature tend to gravitate to this type of swing [legendary Ben Hogan and Jonathon Bird (another 2011 winner) immediately come to mind].

Yet this type of swing is great for golfers of all sizes. 6'4" Nick Faldo won six Majors with this style.

I also prefer this type of swing as it maximizes golf ball compression at impact by reducing what I call "slop" in the swing. This in turn results in maximum ball speed (ala more distance) and spin control.

Body swingers supply the power in the swing through the rotation of the core (chest, trunk, thighs). The body is essentially the engine of the swing, and the arms and hands are along for the ride!

And here's some great news...

Virtually every golfer, including yourself, is a body swinger to some degree with your current motion! You are just not performing the move as efficiently as Mark and his peers. In your swing, things are simply out of alignment, sequence, and position, which causes slop in the motion.

This results in a myriad of issues including lack of distance, slices, hooks, topped shots, shanks, etc... All the frustrations that leave you with up and down rounds, and a stagnant golf handicap.

So to have an efficient swing, one must first start out in a solid, balanced set-up position where the weight is evenly distributed between the entire platforms of the feet. The feet, knees, hips, and shoulders are on a line parallel to the target line.

Wilson does this beautifully and it is a first indication of why he has a powerful, "slop free" golf swing.

Let's look at his Golf Swing...

On the left (1st image below), Mark is at the top of the backswing and everything looks great.

But the next 2 images start to tell the story of why he is so powerful and accurate.

Mark Wilson golf swingMark Wilson down swing

Can you see it? Look at the bend in that driver shaft. It almost looks surreal!

Mark has applied pressure to the grip at the start of the downswing. He is in complete control of that club. We call this "Loading the Shaft". And that baby is loaded as you can see below:

loaded golf club shaftgolf swing impact

Mark delivers that "load" into the ball at impact as well as anyone. There is no slop in that swing. This accounts for his accuracy with the driver as well as the irons. And that 280 yard driving average is nothing to sneeze at, especially given his size relative to his PGA peers.

Now I couldn't do this early on...

Early on in my career, I had fairly low swing and ball speed for my size (over 6'). I just couldn't bend or load the shaft like the better players. That translated into a loss of distance that didn't go unnoticed (or "un-teased") by my playing partners.

It would be a few years later while designing and testing golf balls for an industry leader that I made an important discovery on the testing grounds.

Working side by side with many top PGA pros (as they tested new ball designs) afforded me a close-up view of golf balls being launched deep down the fairways from seemingly effortless swings.

In one of these sessions, I made a discovery that I would later coin the "The Key To A Repeating Golf Swing" and it completely changed my game.

Most importantly, The Key automatically loaded my golf club shaft at the top of the swing, so I could deliver all that energy back through the ball at impact. It was an awesome feeling, and the sound of impact finally mimicked the players on TV (that snap and fizz of a crisply struck ball).

You see, to get the club from the top of the back swing down to impact, there are a few things that must happen in a fraction of a second, and they are not intuitive.

Hence, the down swing is a totally Different Animal than the back swing!

power golf swingThe forces created are tremendous, even for the senior or slower swing speed player. Different muscles are engaged and dynamic balance must be maintained by calling on specific parts of the body. And it all takes place in less than 1/3 second!

From his solid position at the top (image to the right), Mark (and You) can initiate the down swing with The Key To A Repeating Golf Swing and ride the motion right to his finish position.

Mark and all great players, past and present, male and female, are performing The Key whether they are consciously aware of it or not.

When The Key is performed correctly, the down swing will be on auto pilot. You will be held captive by your own great swing.

Impact sounds like a gunshot (especially off the driver) and the golf ball is compressed as efficiently as possible. You will use all of your available swing speed with no power leaks or slop, just like Mark.

 

If you are not happy with your game and are looking for a new direction in the 2014 season, I would like the opportunity to help you by showing you The Key To A Repeating Golf Swing and my complete swing technique.

golf ball spin rateYou will benefit from my firsthand experience inside the ropes, working with some of the top players in the game. I am convinced you will benefit tremendously from my swing instruction, short game strategy, and expert Golf Ball Recommendations (learn more below).

In 25+ years of playing golf, I have concluded that a golfer can not break 80 without a repeating golf swing. It does not have to be perfect, but it must be reproducible. When a repeating swing takes form, a whole new level of satisfaction results as the golfer is now able to play the game the way it was intended.

My trademark move, The Key, loads the golf shaft at the top, and then delivers the club head right back through the ball with precision power and control. It is the star of the show. I can't play without it.

In fact my discovery of The Key was the very catalyst for my whole career in the golf industry. It was also the sole factor that..

Took my scores from the 110's to the 70's after struggling for years
with inconsistent ball striking and a stagnant handicap.

I'll show you exactly what I've shown over 10,000 golfers from 61 countries the last 19+ years (over 10 years online).

I have also added some great bonuses to my 2014 complete package including expert, yet brand unbiased new Golf Ball Reviews.

I recently introduced the 7th edition of "The Key To A Repeating Golf Swing" to the golf world and the response has been incredible. I invested many hours and dollars getting everything up to my standards and I couldn't be more pleased with the final results:

"First ever even par round"

"Hi Robert,

I just wanted to pass on that over the last few weeks I have being playing better and better, until the peak which was just yesterday.

I played at a local course and for the first time in my life I shot under 80, and not just under. I hit 38, 36. A day of firsts, first ever even par round, first time in the 70's, 4 birdies, just an all round amazing result.

I owe a fair bit of it to you as I am adhering strictly to your teaching.

Thanks again and best regards,

Dale N. - Maylasia

P.S. I have just received 2 dozen (name removed) golf balls, the ball you recommended for my game (although the score yesterday was with a (name removed), needless to say I'm starting to love this ball quite a lot) and the next time out I intend to try this ball. I'll check in with you early in the new year to see if there is anything else that you recommend.
"

 

"your instruction clears the head"

Robert,

"I am sure you have received many testimonials in the past but how many within the first few hours.

I purchased & read your e-book this morning - as usual, after reading I needed to go to the practice range to see if it at least worked sometimes for me before committing any further time - patience is not one of my virtues.

Whilst I hit the ball well & hit what I was aiming at most of the time that is not the reason for this reply.

For the first time in my 40 years of golf I felt & knew at the top when I was in a good position to hit the ball solidly & could predict the outcome from the top of my swing.

In short, thank you - I now have the new sensation of the correct feeling at the top - golf is not a game of perfect but given 5 minutes practice I am convinced that "simple" is the answer for the amateur/social golfer to play good golf without hitting hundreds of balls per day. - your instruction clears the head of the thousand thoughts that ruin scores & a good day out with the boys.

I started a skeptic who expected the same rehash of information, instead I am pleasantly surprised."

Peter V. - Australia

 

Same day, dramatic improvement... Nice going Peter.

I get notes like these all the time. It doesn't matter whether you are trying to break 105 or 70, the rate of improvement is typically rapid once the "bad data" is stripped from a golfer, and The Key to a repeating golf swing can begin working its magic.
