If you record the “Morning Drive” show on the Golf Channel, or you’re watching it now on TV – beware the segment on the “golf is like a baseball swing” analogy, because they completely screwed it up.
The baseball swing is NOT like the golf swing in one major aspect that was never touched upon, if you’re going to try what the lady instructor just did (apologies, I didn’t catch her name as I was writing my morning posting and just happened to catch it – I had TGC on to see what the players are doing at this week’s Honda Classic).
I have figured out a way to slow down the Mike Dunaway“stickman” swing gif. that I created years ago, and I found his positions to be illuminating.
There was a lot of discussion back in the Mike Austin days of the then-named DJ Watts Golfblog (later changed to Wax Golf when my swing theory diverged from the Mike Austin model in 2013), about their impact positions.
Just a quick posting with the down the line swings from Saturday, in gif. form.
The thing about having the extended release is that you’re not turning – I’ve said before, there is “no turn in the swing,” only the pivot, whereas if you’re actually trying to time a “turn” through impact, you’re just going to make things much more difficult than they have to be.
I have some video from Saturday, as I mentioned in the posting that day, on the concept of having more extended release action through the ball for more leverage, more power, more speed, more consistency – everything you want in a concept.
