Natural Leverage – So Much More Effective Than Muscle

I’ve compared the leverage of a proper golf swing in years past to that of a judo throw – you can throw someone bigger and heavier than yourself to the ground with relative ease if you know how to leverage the move.

In the same vein, I can affirm that, just as with a judo throw, you can be much more effective swinging your golf club with natural leverage than with brute muscle force.

Light Club Swing Should = Heavy Club Swing

I’ve said that the scourge of Modern Golf Swing instruction and practice is that people who have no business injuring themselves swinging feather-weight clubs in the modern age are doing so.

I mean, how do you hurt yourself swinging today’s driver?

How To Complicate A Golf Swing

I’ve finally figured out what it is that has certain swingers jumping off of their leading foot through impact.

I know, I’ve already said it has to do with them not shifting their weight to the leading foot on the down swing, but there’s more at play here than just that one thing.

If you asked me what the issue is in a nutshell, I’d say, “Let’s go for a spin.”

Driving The Ball 350 Yards With My Left Arm

You may ask me why I have fought so hard to fix my left-dominant right-handed golf swing if I could drive the ball 350 yards and beyond doing it that way.

In a word, because I hate disasters.

Why You Absolutely Don’t Want To Swing Like Bryson

There are two issues here – consistency & injury risk.

Taking a look at his latest video proffer, I can’t imagine what it must be like trying to hit a ball at full speed and still having to worry about and perform that leading foot twist through impact.

This Is Special – And Completely Bogus

Right at the outset, I’m going to give the gentleman doing the analysis and explanation of Bryson DeChambeau’s “pull up, pull down” approach to the swing a break – he’s a PhD but not in the field of Kinesiology or anything else sports related, so he’s a layman here.

That’s important – they really try to pull a fast one here on the viewer by introducing “Dr. XYZ, PhD for the segment, when he essentially wouldn’t be any more of an expert in the discussion than anyone else.

Bryson DeChambeau Is In Trouble – UPDATED

Update At Bottom

Let me preface this latest BDC offering by saying that anyone with a modicum of understanding of how the body works (which should include anyone who has played sports at a reasonable level, we’re talking high school varsity here) could have seen what was coming.

Even a layman in sports experience (those who participate mainly from a seated observational position) could see what was going to happen.

DeChambeau Is Giving Me Nightmares

Someone needs to pull the Mad Scientist aside and tell him he’s going to completely wreck himself if he keeps on his current track.

Someone, anyone – do him that favor and stop him going the way of Tiger Woods.

His impact & follow-through phase are truly, truly nightmarish.  Follow me over the break for some scary stuff.

Could Bryson DeChambeau’s Left Wrist Problem Be A Technical Issue?

Update: WOW – It looks as though I was absolutely on the money with my speculation, because you’ll find at bottom a clip I found just before hitting “publish” on this post.

Rather than re-write it, I’ve inserted it at bottom, but I’d love if you’d read the post from beginning to end instead of jumping to the evidence.
