Let me run something past everyone, because I can’t wrap my brain around the logic of what Modern Golf Swing proponents are always saying.
I’m talking about the restricting of the hip turn in the back swing by keep that leading heel firmly planted on the back swing, all to promote more stability and therefore consistency in the golf swing.
OK, everyone is talking about the posting purporting to “test” Brandel Chamblee’s assertions (and it’s news to me that Chamblee is the originator of something I’ve been saying myself for years now, and that Jack Nicklaus rejected in 1974, but whatever), that a restricted-hip swing is harmful to the lower back.
I was going to wait until tomorrow to post this confusing piece of non-analysis from Tom Stickney II over at Golf WRX, because I’m getting emails about it – you fellas are quick – so here goes, guys!
If you hear that Tiger Woods hit a 360 yard drive yesterday, just remember it was downhill, downwind, and that Mike Weir once had a 400 yard drive recorded on the Plantation Course in Hawaii… just saying…
Because I just got a look at the new Tiger Woods swing with a driver, and it’s – I am trying to find something positive here – not as bad as before, albeit with a lot less power than he used to have.
If you need any proof that the Modern Golf Swing is an unworkable theory that is also destroying players’ bodies and careers, look no further than the stats you get comparing numbers (actual and theoretical) between the longest swingers from the Classic Golf Swing era.
I haven’t posted since Sunday, as I’m deep in the task of finishing the “MCS – Perfect Pivot“ video, and really want to get it done and have it available this week.
As always, the task of winnowing out material to leave the best possible 1 hour of video is what takes time. So much material produced over the years, and so much to go through to make this hoped-for final video project on the MCS full swing as good as I want it to be.
