I have said for years, based upon my own experience and seeing/hearing what golf “experts” have to say about athleticism in golf, that most of these people haven’t really ever played or excelled at any other sport.
Those of you who have followed my golf swing blogging for a certain number of years will remember that I came to this golf swing research already able to produce lots of speed & power.
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 PhDbut 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.
I’ve broken that long iron swing of Jack Nicklaus’ from yesterday’s post down into the 2 separate components of the back pivot (loading the trebuchet) and the down swing weight shift (leveraging the trebuchet).
This weekend, you’ll be able to watch all you want of today’s pro players contorting themselves trying to generate power from every wrong way, and you can compare them to Nicklaus’ weight shift leveraging his power effortlessly.
