Is Stack and Tilt for You?

Kregg Moyer guiding Mike Bennet
It’s controversial, it’s different, and it’s not necessarily for everyone, but the Stack and Tilt swing has a lot going for it, according to local PGA pro Kregg Moyer who teaches the method by appointment.   He explains, “The movement pattern of Stack and Tilt is perfectly natural, which you can’t say about the traditional swing.”

The Stack and Tilt Swing keeps your body centered over the ball throughout the shot, unlike the traditional swing which calls for a weight shift away from the ball during the backswing and forward during the downswing, hopefully finding the ball somewhere along the way. The biggest advantage of Stack and Tilt is your ability to hit the ball solidly—before your club digs into the turf.

Just before the season ended last year, I had the opportunity to try Stack and Tilt under Moyer's watchful eye. In just a couple of minutes, he had me hitting six irons with a little draw that flew about 50% higher than my normal ball flight and traveled just as far before landing soft and sweet. The really great thing was how repeatable it was! I'm really looking forward to putting it into action this year.

The swing was refined and introduced a few years ago by Andy Plummer and Mike Bennett, who have worked with more than 20 PGA Tour pros including Mike Weir, Aaron Baddeley, and Steve Elkington. Their eponymous book, The Stack and Tilt Swing, has clear easily understood explanations of the swing’s principles as well as hundreds of photos that show you how it’s done. Moyer can be reached for personal instruction at (914) 629-6122.
