Just a short posting and a picture which tells you everything you need to know about the deluded world of the modern swing instructors and their followers.
The cognitive dissonance the past week or so has led me to wonder if there is something in the water being used to irrigate the golf courses and driving ranges.
It is possible that there is a cynical reason – hype. Everyone knows that this new swing is still a dog’s breakfast (marginally improved from the Foley model, but still horrifically mechanically-incorrect), but it won’t help the industry to say that. So let’s just call it the old swing from the 90’s, and no one will know the difference?
It’s also possible that some people believe what they’re saying, which is even more frightening than that of cynicism.
But it is as simple as drawing a line, to see how absolutely stunning I find it that people are saying what they are saying about something.
You know, calling a cow a horse does not turn it into a horse.
And conversely, saying that a cow is not a cow does not suddenly make it not a cow. It’ll still be a cow, whatever you want to call it.
So, if this is NOT stacking and tilting, what on earth is it?
You see that golfer behind Tiger there? Yeah, I’d be avoiding looking at that move too..
It doesn’t matter what you call this swing model, because it is what it is, and that is – NOT what this swinger was doing in the ’90s and early 2000’s.
Call it what you want to call (the “Como-ver?”), but I know what it isn’t.
And anyone else who doesn’t, shouldn’t be teaching the golf swing to anyone.
