I have to say, if the stuff below is what he’s working on, it’s no wonder he missed the cut and he’s way off.
I mean, way off.
Like, trying things I was trying in my 3rd year of swing research, which I could only do with actual range work about 6 months of the year due to winters off…
When I saw this, I didn’t even say, “Hmm, that looks familiar…”
I said, “Holy cow, how long ago was I swinging and practicing ballet at the same time?”
It was September of 2008, to be exact:
I’ll tell you another thing as well, which has to do with why you’re only seeing this much of my swing – it was so bad, I can’t even put it up here on the blog or I’d die of embarrassment.
It was so left-loaded, like a Classic Golf Swing version of the Stack & Tilt move, and go watch Bryson’s swing again with an eye to his weight balance and distribution.
And even here, I wasn’t spinning on my lead heel like a top.
Not to mention, at the start of the clip, Bryson is practicing that old “hold-off the release” move and then proceeds at 00:14 to make two more motions with a release action.
So, how to you hold off and release at the same time?
Methinks the young man is going backwards in his search for swing excellence.
