As we know, professional golfers are the best in the world at it – even with mechanically-unsound swings, they can repeat shots with near-robotic consistency when they’re on their game, and that’s the way it should be.
You’ve seen me complain every once in a while, in fact, that it’s ridiculous that pros play golf using what I call “training wheels on their bicycles,” namely in playing using the same ultra-forgiving equipment that amateurs use.
It’s not a huge surprise to hear that the Mad Scientist of golf has completely unraveled, but it is news to me.
When I mused in yesterday’s posting that BDC was going backwards in his quest for the swing he wants (the “perfect swing?”), it was simply due to observing him swinging in a way that I was when I had only had two seasons of swing research under my belt.
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.
