I made mention yesterday of how Tiger Woods’ major winning ways basically came to a screeching halt when he left Hank Haney(although he was already in some trouble with his shifting address bias with HH) and embraced what I call the “Voodoo Biomechanics” of another coach.
Essentially, this is how I define something as “voodoo” anything – if you can’t find it anywhere but in the place it’s being sold, then there’s a strong chance it is voodoo.

It wasn’t until I cracked the riddle of the right-handed swing (using the right hand or “power” hand in a right-handed golf swing, meaning you’re “throwing” or “pushing” with the lower hand on the club) that I began to see clearly why certain swingers do things that others don’t.
I’m left-handed, as you know by now, with a peculiar habit – I play sports right-handed, which means I swing rightie in golf, baseball, hockey – but I use my left arm to control the stroke.
BT sent me this great find yesterday, and it left me wondering. The link he sent me was to a book the he found listed on GoogleBooks.
While I won’t buy the book by James Douglas Edgar, a British golfer and writer (1884-1921) nor recommend it (I don’t have a problem with my hips, so I’m not curious), I wonder if this book had anything to do with the development of the modern style “restricted hip” golf swing.

I don’t know any other way to put it, but the Modern Golf Swing has to go. It is unreliable and doesn’t work. There’s no other way to put it.
There is no other action or motion on this earth that is taught to people where they turn their torsos against a resisting lower body and then apply huge twisting forces to them in the opposite direction.
