First of all, if you listen very carefully to what Brandel Chamblee got Sean Foley to admit on television, I don’t know how he retains any of his students.
Foley basically admits that the Modern Golf Swing (which he supports and teaches) is not sound compared to the Classic Golf Swing way of pivoting which is “incredibly safe,” in his own words at 2:40 of the clip!
Now, if you want to know why this is so significant, ask yourself which way a pitching coach would teach his pitchers to throw – in a way that is incredibly safe thus reducing the risk of injury… or any other type of pitching motion?
How about a lifting coach teaching the way to clean and jerk a heavy weight?
How about someone teaching the use of factory machinery?
The safe way?
Or the “other” way?
The “money quote,” is at 3:40 where Foley says of the Classic Golf Swing way of pivoting, “you will start to see more of this…”
Not only that, Foley describes the Classic Golf Swing pivot method as “probably more natural to human movement…”
To which I have only one statement – it’s not “probably,” but “definitely…”
And one question…
“Why on earth would you be teaching anything other than what is natural to human movement?!?”
And Foley’s excuse for teaching and swinging in the Modern method after saying that?
Because everyone fell in love with a certain “look” to the swing when you matched the take-way shaft angle to the down swing shaft angle.
I kid you not… that’s why… my word, I’m speechless.
I really have nothing to add to this, as Foley is admitting to the world that the way he and all other Modern Golf Swing proponents have taught the swing to their students is not safe and that the Classic Golf Swing principles will come back in the future.
Exactly what I’ve been saying for years, but now you can hear it from the same guy who has raked in millions of dollars teaching a golf swing that isn’t mechanically-sound and that broke his most famous students’ back.
I wonder if Tiger Woods caught any of that?
I don’t know what Brandel Chamblee gave Foley in the form of truth serum, because that was a devastating segment to the Modern Golf people, but Chamblee needs to be putting it into all of the golf swing analysts’ drinks during televised events!
