What will be the Legacy of Moe Norman? Will he be remembered for his quirky and eccentric personality and his failure to exploit his talent on the PGA Tour. Or will he be remembered for his contribution to golf – his amazing golf swing and what I consider the discovery of an easier way to play golf. This is a topic of conversation I often have with my brother and our team at Graves Golf Academy. I recently discussed this with David Carver, entrepreneur and producer, developing a movie about Moe.

Moe was great character. His personality and relationships left a trail of great stories and exploits. It seems that every golfer from his era has a Moe story, even the ones who never met him.

Websters Dictionary defines Legacy as: 1)a gift by will especially of money or other personal property : bequest or 2) something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past.

So what personal property did Moe leave us? Better yet, what can we receive from him even if he is no longer with us?

Yes, there is no doubt that Moe will be remembered for his quirky and eccentric appeal. His stories help us understand his character. They make us laugh and sometimes wince. But since Moe didn’t leave you with any money or the contents from the back seat of his car, Moe will be remembered his contributions to the sport of golf if we are willing to take advantage of what he left.

I believe that Moe discovered his legacy in the grassy fields at Rockway Golf club in Kitchener Ontario. That’s where his hands bled as he worked through his human insecurities to develop the greatest golf swing to ever hit a ball. I believe Moe’s inability to fit in to society fueled his passion for golf. He outworked everyone. “It’s hard work, you cant buy it” he remarked when I asked him about how he learned his golf swing.

I agree with Moe. You can’t buy a great golf swing. However, You can copy it. And so began my relationship with Moe Norman – the legendary 64 year old who was nothing more than a myth before I met him. He was not a young man but he was childlike and passionate about golf. We often talked about life, his tribulations on and off of the course. I always pushed and prodded him for more “secrets” to help me become a better golfer. At first it was a selfish endeavor. I wanted Moe to give me his secrets.

The problem with Moe’s “Feeling of Greatness” is that asking Moe to describe it would be similar to asking Pavarotti how he sings. There is really no way to describe it, not in any sensible way that makes it applicable to the average person. Over the ten years of practicing and playing with Moe, I learned that Moe didn’t have any secrets. He was the secret. He was the researcher, entrepreneur and developer of a technology. He was the product – an easier golf swing that could be copied.

This is where I came in and the Graves Golf Academy was born with the mission to bridge the gap between Moe’s feelings and the science of his swing. I consider myself the interpreter of Moe’s feelings into an understandable formula, based on the science physiology and movement. But Moe’s swing is not rocket science. It is easily transferred to anyone who wants to try it. It is simple once understood.

Today I teach the Single Plane Golf Swing – a system to teach Moe’s golf swing mechanics that every golfer can apply to, and simplify his game. Moe’s swing defies the established methods and thinking and mechanics. It defies convention.

Moe’s Legacy is more than his character or his golf swing. His legacy also includes how knowing Moe Norman can help our lives so that each one of us can take what he left us into the future and enjoy our own Moe-ments.
