JUSTIN THOMAS GOLF SWING AND POWER MOVE. Mark Crossfield golf professional talks about Justin Thomas and his powerful golf swing. Mark talks about power moves and long drives and how you can improve your tee shots for more power. With Justins amazing success and his driver being one of his huge skills lets see what we can learn from such a strong golf swing.

  1. You two killed it! (Both of your combined overall analysis is fantastic!) The pros with their more modern "power golf" swings are hitting the ball with at least a clubhead speed of about 120 m.p.h., creating a ball speed of at least 170 m.p.h., along with the consistency and physical talent they have to do it, to achieve the "tour distance" drives (280-320 yards) they now have off of the tee on the PGA Tour. (It goes hand-in-hand that the faster the controlled swing [e.g. Dustin Johnson, John Daly, and the like], the farther the ball will carry.) As stated by Mark several times in this video, the pros' current way of driving is way different than we older golfers have been taught, when we were just starting to take golf lessons and just starting to take the game more seriously, years ago. (I was always told by my teacher to "let the clubhead do the work", and to concentrate on a consistent, controlled swing. Coupled with the non-"game improvement", harder-to-hit clubs of the day that didn't help you and punished you when you got it wrong, I still have that consistency, now.) It's the reason why current young players (especially on The Tour) may have a "shelf-life", hitting so hard as a competitive golfer, regardless of their possible God-given superior talent. For the human body can only take so much of the accompanying abuse that goes with swinging so hard, over time. Swedes on skis: They put their kids on skis after they have just learned to walk, and they turn-out to be incredible, "second nature" skiers by the time they are in their teens. The same with aspiring pro golfers and the modern way of playing, I reckon. (I'll stick with a more controlled, slower swing. For I'll be able to play into my mature adult years, without the injury and the pain that may inevitably accompany "the longer ball". God is going to be cruel and slow you down as you age, anyways. So play it smart and don't rush the process along with potentially other physical problems with too much abuse, for a few extra yards. [Unless you're a pro and you can retire on your winnings and fame, regardless of the condition of your back, knees, neck, etc., over time…LOL!])

    Missed you glad the Coffee shop is back ☕️

  3. Right get the chiropractor on stand by!! Reach and Jump!!what could go wrong. I mean in my mind I’m 25 and fit as a butchers dog!! Shame I’m an unfit middle aged man with knackered knees and a dodgy back!!!

  4. Reminds me exactly of playing tennis in tournaments as a kid. They only way I know how to hit a 2nd serve is to swing as hard as I can and it generates as much spin as possible to make sure it goes in – I actually swung harder on my second serve (more spin) than on my 1st serve – flatter. For me, swinging harder was more control. In a way, I have found this to be true in golf if I want to hit that long high draw – my old standard drive was a 100mph swing speed trap fade that was automatic 245 off the tee – boring. I have a high draw shot, but it requires complete total commitment of aiming down the right (almost in the rough) teed up higher and then massive 100% commitment to go at it as hard as I can and to swing to the right completely – and then all of a sudden it is a 280 carry with a 3 yard draw and it looks nothing like my other shots. I can completely see what JT is doing – he grew up learning that swing and his body can do it. I learned it as a 30yr old, ex tennis player, but the margin of error is small but I know it is possible – High Launch / Low spin / swing right / high tee / 100% go for it – it's like a 2nd serve in Pro tennis – you have to swing hard or it doesn't work. The Canadian Brooke Henderson who just won the Canadian Open swing exactly like this all the time and she carries it 260.

  5. WOW this is extremely risky Guys!
    JT may only be 5 ft 8in, but he works hard on his physical fitness and flexibility. Ad hoc attempts to swing faster without a supporting training protocol will do wonders for the businesses of Chiropractors and Orthopaedic Surgeons!!!! Using an Overspeed training and body balancing training protocol will achieve similar gains in club head speed without having to change your swing or running the risk of serious injury!!!!!!!!

  6. When I pat pat. I’m not accurate at all. A very bad slice. But if I completely swing for the hills, like scrunching my eyes. My slice disappears. And I’m a lot straighter.

  7. I learned WAY back in 1973 when I was 13 and was taught to swing within ourselves as the game was being taught to keep ball in play and not loosing balls as they weren't all that cheap back in the day !
    Whats sad is I NEVER learned how to generate club head speed and now at 57 I am a short hitter and have struggled with scoring low , as Length is everything in golf .
    Now days its, Hit the Ball as HARD as you can to learn to develop club head speed , , then teaching how to dial it down and to keep it in the fairway later , knowing you have this extra in the tank when needed !

  8. It should be Finau, DeChambeau, Schauffele, and Tiger.

    It'll end up being Finau, DeChambeau, Mickelson, and Tiger.

  9. I think a recent study showed that the closer to the hole you are, the more likely you are to score, especially for amateurs. So as long you're not going wild, hitting it 290 and approaching out of the rough is statistically better than 270 from the fairway.

  10. I started trying this 2 weeks ago and I gained 30-40 yards on carry (190-200 up to 230-240) but injured something in my arm and couldn’t swing for a week. What was interesting is that I started turning better and hitting it higher and straighter as well. When I tried to hit one at 75% I ended up pulling and hooking it because I kept the same wrist angles but stopped turning.

    Not interested in pulling my arm again but I seem to have found a consistent 220 carry out of the experiment.

  11. Yes on the smash vlog!! I also want to say that I think you can learn to hit middle swinging as hard as you can. It’s a skill like any other. It does take practice focused on that task, but it can be done. And it makes finding middle at less than full speed a lot easier.

  12. The thing is that just like a gymnast JT had been keeping himself supple from a young age and as he has grown he’s maintained his elasticity, for us 40 plus’ers we could blow a gasket trying those sort of moves. This video should carry a “don’t try this at home warning”

  13. At 67 years old, I'm still in good shape, but, I can no longer hit that long ball swing and not hurt myself. I just hit some balls on the range to find my tempo and head for the 1st tee and swing ( 7 ) on the speed scale, to hit it solid and keep it in play and not cause any pain. I enjoy watching the young guys belt it out there though, but I want the fairway.

  14. After Brooks won the PGA the announcer said it. “This is the future of golf”. Athletic men that bomb 300+ yard drives. 270+ with a 3 wood and 150+ with a wedge means you’re eating par 4s and 5s all day long.

    You need to have ungodly levels of golf skill (I.e Tiger Sunday at the PGA) to keep up with distances like that.

  15. Mark…I've tried this method and the distance gains (15+ carry) is great, but I was spending too much time listening to the "the lovely boy" song…..As an older golfer I have to spend a lot of time in the gym…Father time never stops…
