It’s not that I’m afraid to, I just don’t like the road it goes down when you tell someone who is looked up to that they’re full of rubbish. Bruised egos and whatnot.
On my humble blog and Twitter account however, I can step boldly onto the soap box and let fly without directly targeting anyone publicly, though I have and can do that if they catch me in the right (or is it wrong?) mood, so here is my afternoon Twitter rant from today in blog form with the relevant links (I sometimes clean out my Tweets, hence not just posting the Tweets themselves).
The problem with golf is that even the so-called “experts” & analysts for the most part are CLUELESS about proper athletic motion & biomechanics.
Stop saying that a flying leading foot provides power or lift, it is a COMPENSATION for not releasing the trailing foot through impact!
If the so-called “experts” & analysts can’t get this right, what chance does the casual player have to improve? Ball speed, launch angle & spin govern how far you will drive it, not your flopping/flying leading foot. How did golf get to this point?
Here is a 5-6 degree Positive AA producing 12-13 degrees Launch Angle with 8.5 degree driver, now tell me what my leading foot is doing, please.
Launch Angle is determined by Angle of Attack & flying/flopping feet have NOTHING to do with how to produce it.
Take Launch Angle, Add Ball Speed & Low Spin – THAT’S how you produce longer, powerful drives.
At 48 yrs of age, yours truly (who hits balls once per week on average) w/8 degree Driver producing 300+ carry with NUMBERS & NO FLYING FOOT thank you very much. Just absurd analysis out there to be honest.
You produce natural lift without having to “jump” for it if you have proper mechanics.
Calling a swing compensation a power or lift producer means the “expert” should be in kinesiology class taking notes instead of explaining mechanics. Sad but true.
Baseball players need LIFT & POWER too. Look at Mike Trout‘s home run swing & feet.
IF you TRIED to coach a Baseball player to keep his trailing foot anchored & “JUMP” off the leading foot you’d be ejected from the facility on your head & rightfully so. STOP THE MADNESS
