Greatest ball striker that ever lived, in some people's opinion!

Anyone who teaches the game I'm sure would have studied this guy's moves at some point.

Right Sided Coach? Shorthitter?

Love to hear ur comments..

I'm far from a pro, just an average weekend hacker, but I've heard of Moe Norman.

I believe Todd Graves studied under Moe and now teaching the "Moe Norman swing". Supposedly Moe held the grip and swung the club slightly differently before he got associated with Natural Golf (which is rumored that he changed to please the Natural Golf guys / Jack Kuykendall). So I'm not really sure if anyone today teaches the "Moe" swing besides Todd, or if Todd already made some changes.

I think Moe was "special" and he after he spent a lot of time just hitting balls (> 1 million by the time he was 19). Most of the time he was probably in a world of his own, and so he he kinda figured out how to get the golf ball to go where he wanted it.

You can go google more about Moe Norman and his many stories. It's a little sad that because he was "special" he couldn't really fit into the normal PGA golf circles.

Several months back, my last golf swing info "flavor of the month" was Sevam One's secret in the dirt (google it if you're interested) and Sevam also has some small bits of info about Moe and "hogan's secret"

Moe was most probably an "autistic savant".
He had strange,shy and reclusive behavior; was obsessed with certain weird routines, etc.
During his time autism was probably not understood and he didn't really fit in and was jeered at, etc.

A lot different to your average golfer



They all have different swings but the body shape is the common thing amongst the better ball strikers

for the newcomers in GR, one of my favorite thing is to dig out old threads in GR, around june-dec 2009. Many discussions on golf swing etc. lots of good insights.

I can see why TSS earned the name Grandmaster, although he only posts nite training stuff these days, I blame it on CCC Laughing

i recently watched Sevam1's videos. Going to try the secret move this month...

Not the original video from 2007-08, he posted another asksevam1 vid with picture of his foot and the feel he like to ingrained from the pivot points. Then He illustrated with his hands. Back heel planted/pressure towards target (clockwisefrom top) before lifting up. Back heel cant move counterclock wise (look from top) and up. Am using iphone so difficult to link the vid. Pls advise GM Very Happy

If there is one thing i learn from self learning to fix or improve my golf swing...don't do it, just messes things up.

Especially when you try and incorporate this secret and that secret and from this pro and from that pro...

all you get is a "youtube" swing.
