You’ve actually seen the man responsible for this latest Golf Digest abomination before, when I wrote about Golf Digest trying to kill you – or destroy your back, whichever came first.
Now, Ron Kaspriskeenlists GD Fitness Advisor Ben Shear (which is an interesting surname, because these tips will aid you in doing exactly that to the discs in your lower back) to assist in the ongoing carnage.
OK, based on a comment fromDB Coop about “cooking” something up, I had a sudden thought about the golf swing along those lines – bear with me if you will, but it’s like baking a cake.
Now, I said yesterday that the golf ball doesn’t care how you swing, only about impact conditions. And if you want to play golf that same way (it doesn’t matter how you swing, the only thing that matters is getting the ball in the hole), then you can, but you will certainly be lacking something, especially if you’re risking injury simply because your technique is unsound.
Wax Nation member J.S. sent me a link to a Youtube video that uses something called GEARS technology to analyse motion in the motion on a swing, and this looks very cool.
Now, I’m not saying I agree with anything being said about the swing shown in the video, because I believe it’s an analysis of a modern golf swing, for which I have no use, but imagine if we could have hooked Jack Nicklaus up to one of these when he was swinging his best!
I have been a bit quiet on the blog this week as I prepare to begin the ’17 outdoor season, but I have to say, you can distill the essence of the golf swing motion into three concepts – the Swing Point, the Arc and the Hands.
Everything you have to do, regarding the stance, grip, mechanical action – it all comes down to the Swing Point and the Arc.
