The Single Pivot Swing – Ben Hogan’s Secret Revealed with Tony Manzoni (RIP)


GS#251 This is our initial introduction to the late Tony Manzoni from episode 251 published in October, 2010. It’s also the first weekly episode from our archives we call Mulligans that is now featured on Golf Smarter every Friday.
Tony developed the Single Pivot Swing after extensively studying Ben Hogan’s swing. Tony was selected by inventor Ted Caldwell as a knowledgable instructor who could explain the value of his new product (2010) called “Shot Watch” which was valuable swing aide that monitors rhythm, grip pressure and swing speed. Ted also joins in to provide more details.
