    I show this clip to the javelin throwers I coach to let them see real
    rhythm in action. Talk about correct application of forces in a relaxed

    Tiger could not do this. But no one else can either. Fred was one of a kind
    and has no equal. I miss him along with a slew of others.

  • moshiee03:

    this is honestly one of the most impressive things ive ever seen

  • Gary Jones:

    Absolutely brilliant!!

  • Mi5oMi6o:

    Thats is bloody brilliant..I love how he really gets his front heel lifted
    and then plants it down through impact… For sure that should be a NIKE

  • aroonie:

    Fantastic. That, my friends, is a golf swing.

  • John Erickson:

    Fred had a great golf swing.. His use of vertical and horizontal ground
    pressures is better than most tour pros we see today. The heavier clubs of
    the past required more force grounding into the feet, and who better to do
    that than Astaire! Bravo Great One!

    Such poise – Fred is a great example that people from all sports can
    benefit from copying.

  • fennygolf:

    ive tried and this aint easy

  • FSU PGM'er:

    I read in a book I bought about ten years ago that after the dance routine,
    when the crew went to pick up the balls, all four of Astaire’s iron shots
    ended up within about twenty feet from one another and all five of his tee
    shots ended up about thirty or forty feet from each other. I’m not kidding.
    I’ll try to find the name of the book, if I still have it.
