Golf Swing For BIG Golfers: Craig Stadler Analysis (Lag's #1 Instructor Clay Ballard)

There is a question I have been getting a lot lately. How do big golfers swing the club? what is the best way for someone of large stature to move and get both distance and accuracy.

Well, you may be surprised that the answer is different than what is commonly recommended. I always hear “big golfers need to swing flat and around their bodies”! When you start to look at it, that is almost impossible. The bigger the player the more upright the swing should be . It is the only way to have enough room to move the club if you have a bigger chest.

In this video I will do an analysis of Craig Stadler while talking about how he is able to move his body and create great golf shots.

I am looking forward to working with you much more in the future.

Anthony Dale says:

I have very stiff shoulders from weights and playing many years of
football. My problem is not having enough flexibility to get my shoulders
round and causes me not to have a constance smooth swing.

so how do you swing if your not built like Tiger or Matt?????

Hi Clay. At 275 lbs, I am a big golfer but average height. I have wide
meaty shoulders. If you see my swing at /watch?v=wpENfhdhRxs my left
shoulder turns my head to the right. I have always had a problem with
swaying in my take away (although at impact my head is same as at address).
Today I tried your more upright swing – I feel less restricted. Have to put
a little more weight toward my toes. I would like to progress in this.
..if I can reduce the swaying. Thanks, Bob

Scott Johnson says:

Yeah, I’m built exactly like Craig, have a very very flat and round swing
and hit a lot of blocks and block fades. Happy to try and get the club up
and vertical and keep it in front!
