Jimmy Walker has a free-flowing golf swing that seems devoid of any surplus movement.  Smooth on the backswing, great transition into the downswing, and a full follow-through.  But the key component of this swing is the ability to keep the club moving from the inside.  This produces a consistent draw.  The move that helps him produce this swing is explained by Hank Haney for Golf Digest!  Enjoy!
