You’ll recall it wasn’t too long ago (two weeks, actually), when I blogged about noticing a new terminologyin TV golf swing analysis – that of “vertical lift” to excuse the “flying foot” symptom of several notable pros, and to make that swing flaw into something positive.
Believe it or not, I completely missed yesterday’s 1st round of the Northern Trust – while in my mind I knew it was Thursday, I suppose, I was working on the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video all afternoon and didn’t have the TV on at all.
By now, everyone on the waiting list for the “MCS – Kinetic Chain” has received their email on the technical disaster that befell me to close out last week – thanks to everyone who responded with your supportive emails, as they were the bright spot this weekend.
Another de-bunking here, as I heard a couple of times on the PGA Championship broadcast that players like Justin Thomas get “vertical lift” by having a high trailing heel and having the front foot leave the ground at impact.
Of course, I’ve made my view clear that I think the analysts on TV have no clue why a player does the “flying foot,” so you hear a lot of bunk concerning this.
