The one where Michelle says:
To start, do what I do: Take an extra-wide stance and plant each foot well outside your shoulders (photo, above). This broader base further restricts your hip turn.
Then push out your knees so you look a bit bowlegged, like I do, and squat down a bit, pressing your spikes into the ground. Your legs are now engaged—the tightness signals that you’re ready to start your backswing.
I mean, here she is telling people exactly what to do, and then we get this from Golfweek not even two months after the article’s publication:
Those who have watched Wie compete the past year can understand how her swing led to hip pain. Her pre-shot routine demonstrated her quest for an exaggerated load on the left side.
Leadbetter said the wide stance and drive down through the left hip and knee was to keep her hips from spinning out.
So… Michelle Wie was telling people to adopt an extra-wide stance and to restrict their hip turn – and doing this is exactly what has wrecked her hip, as evidenced by the now-much-narrower stance as she tries to piece her body back together.
So… I was just wondering…
Anything to say, Golf.com?
About giving outrageously incompetent swing advice from golfers who are destroying their bodies with the same moves, and readily admit it after they break down?
And I get it, actually.
You can’t even tell people not to kill themselves swinging this way, because a month ago, you were praising the same moves.
Admitting that now would be to admit you know nothing about proper mechanics, and the situation is nothing more than the blind leading the blind.
And now you know why I think the whole modern golf instruction industry is a big, steaming pile of misdirection, bad mechanics and junk science…
Because it is...
