I came across Malaska late last year. Now, I follow Malaska and once the range was open at our course I started to work on his concept of the swing. What attracted me was his having transitioned from baseball to being a competitive golfer and the subsequent events of his career.
I did not play golf as a youth, picked up my first golf club shortly after graduation from college because of encouragement from the work place. My best sport in school was baseball. My first experience with golf was to use a similar swing. I actually got better and better, never had a higher score than a 99, which was my first 18 holes at Papago, Phoenix and regularly broke 80 within two years playing about once a week and then did not play for another 10 years. When I started again I was in the low 80's and improving till I got some golf instruction and was told my swing was all wrong. Suddenly golf became a much more difficult sport for me than it had been up to that first lesson from a PGA professional instructor. So, I instantly related to Malaska when I heard the story of his career.
I can't say I completely imitate the Malaska swing as I don't use a camera, etc., or have a good way to compare what I am doing to his video's. However, within a couple of small buckets, I was very comfortable with the changes I made. I decided to take it to the course. Contact was immediately improved, but I was reminded of my first exposure to the game. I was pulling the ball foul to left field. Each week I have seen improvement. Last round, even though I bogeyed 5 of the first 7 holes, I ended the round with a 79. What I really like is that once again the golf swing feels natural to me. I haven't yet, but I am now going to work on some of his short game concepts. Maybe the Malaska full swing is not for everyone, but imo if you are a baseball player or were in your youth, Malaska is worth checking out.
