Made a video about the study I did with CMotion golf swing, graciously the developer himself visited and said this about what I did on YouTube
I am humbled.
Best in the world
Made changes yesterday, better today
Its like a puzzle, you know what it looks like the framework but you still haven’t got all the bits into their places yet but you know one thing, all the bits that are there are all that needs to be there.
So one then apply each concept at each point, then apply the skill and if the skill used don’t match the template one then change skill. (skill=behavior)
That can be daunting for some, talked to Hans, and he applied what I learned today, which refined things for him so he could improve.
So it took 6 weeks but then the pivot worked the way it should now.
Mike was known to hit it long, current world record in a sanctioned PGA tournament is 540 yards at 64 years of age.
Mike taught what he did, so he thought but evidence suggest that no one was able to do what Mike did.
My modeling of Mike Austin’s motion is seen with Hans here the first in history of golf I successfully transferred the motion from one golfer to another.
In a modern golf swing your limited with your movement and that means your swing integrity of distance/accuracy gets a toll at around 270 yards and after that you be all over the place. Todays equipment allows people tour pros mainly to add more distance vs old tech. The amateur however did not benefit.
An amateur hit around 200-220 yards.
Tour pros top 100 around 290 yards.
That difference are due to a tour pro is able to swing within their swing mechanic and technique but are also causing back problems and dispersion issues.
Using a throw mechanic your using a natural body movement allowing for mass to pivot around an axis for speed.
Modern swing don’t allow that as you need to muscle it and adding a extra variable for dispersion.
Mike Austin mechanics allows
The swing don’t make scores, its a tool to get the ball there but we have many skills in golf, putting, chipping, pitching and approach shots, course management and mental ability.
Mike Austin flew his ball over green in his 540 yard drive, didn’t make eagle or birdie. Hitting it long helps you keep more consistency but it wont do anything for your scoring. Jordan spieth for example if he shifted to this he be winning a lot more tournaments as he lost his Master title due to fighting his mechanics for 4 whole days.
With the RBIm swing system he wouldn’t had to.
It never goes wonky, you never loose the swing it always works.
Your modern swing always change tempo, timing shifts and you struggle with basic shots all the time.
Practice is a little like, do one thing, receive feedback, alter what you do to improve.
Simple concept really but to make it work requires some insight in how the brain works with learning. When I solved the way talent is created and built that also allowed me to improve faster than before.
In 6 sessions I been able to get the template down which I developed for Hans based on Mike Austin’s motion. Feels good.
While the template is known the next step is instructions.
While applying the template, first thing was to refine the feedback in the movement, that was feedback from day 1 and day 2 confirmed the new instruction worked. The next thing was to fix the throw mechanic and improve the pivot and that took 3 sessions and confirmed working session 6.
Conceptually we cant do positions in a golf swing. However everyone teach you that and then add drills. What you need is to know what to do, simplify the attention and then add effective quality feedback.
This is bad advice btw
He Nick Faldo leaves the whole body out of the movement, he already can move properly so he can show it that way but try it and you find your whole body mechanic is left out.
if your an amateur, you don’t know how a flawless effortless impact feels like. My sis kid was frustrated, he could not hit one good swing, I let him do that, when he was angered enough went and sat down with his phone, I said, hey lets try this and he wasn’t willing but he went with it as I told him what to do and then he swung and smoked it.
I said, that’s how it feels like.
He improved directly.
Without the feedback and some evidence your hitting it properly its basically impossible to do it and to find it on your own. Its a reason no one except me been able to model a golf swing and then transfer the motion to someone else in the history of golf.
Next up is myself and those I atm are working with.
There be 4 people then that are able to do what Mike Austin did do but couldn’t transfer and teach.
That’s how models and template works. You have a blueprint in how someone does things, then the code is transferred using instruction of the defined essential action in the result produced. The instruction set is getting updated along the way as teaching Hans was to easy as he already had things like impact. Applying this the recent week or so in 6 sessions have created a much improved instruction set.
Problem for anyone who can do things is to explain how your doing the things you do. Your just able to do them and the brain habituate everything so a lot of information is hidden as its synced with the coordination itself of doing what one does. Modeling is a way to uncover what one does, building a instruction set to transfer the essential skills and replicate the result or even improve upon.
So what people do watching a swing you wont be able to replicate what you see. If it was you be able to swing like Ben Hogan could or someone else but obviously that wont work, it wont work even if the individual themselves explain it either as seen with Mike Dunaway that couldn’t do it either in spite of being taught personally by Mike Austin.
When you explain the individual needs to adapt to your instruction as seen with Sean Foley and Tiger and then when Sean explains to people that a baseball pitch works one way when it cant then one have to ask how people get a trainer certificate. Obviously explaining things like Mike Austin does,
The explanation is just nonsense. You wont be able to follow it and swing as he did.
Its in essence, worthless.
Once the template was formed the question is if the instruction set is good enough to transfer the skills. I then do two things at the same time, one is to do the practice follow the instruction set developed, if something is off I am able to track that down and improve on it.
Day 1, lack of power was evident, my distance improvement was there but I didn’t feel any power.
Analyze was shown what was missing, added that instruction.
Day 2 practice session, worked, felt power added distance.
Day 3, 4 and 5 was to improve the pivot and throwing action and the new instruction set developed and then tested on day 6 confirmed the action was now improved.
Pivot and proper movement was now happening and distance was added again. Day 7 will be more of what was happening in day 6 and further worked on if needed.
Improvement or building talent don’t take long unless you lack feedback. The issue with drills is a lack of that and there is no real way to improve them either. Its a simple concept, do – feedback either you improve which is good or you did not, if the improvement is lacking one analyze and then add something so you do improve.
You can build skills in such a short time frame that people have told me repeatedly is impossible.
I still did it. I am still doing it.
Felt good about todays session.
I talk about swing integrity a lot which means the balance between distance and accuracy, modern swings start to spread balls at a given distance then you want to keep your swing speed in that level to keep up consistency and especially accuracy with dispersion.
The Mike Austin swing mechanics adds around a 80 yard distance increase within the same or better accuracy.
The amateur can then expect a 300+ yard driving outhitting even the best on the PGA tour.
The logic is simple, easier more efficient motion allows you to add more speed without having to do a lot of gym and work outs. True, if your stronger and tall that will add more distance obviously than a shorter weaker individual.
However, most wont believe this due to Adam Young posted an article how to hit long that he has world experts on bio mechanics telling him he is correct.
Normally I ask, do those bio mechanical experts hit the golf ball 300+ yards?
The answer will be no.
Isn’t that fun say?
To do a complex action the way people do learn golf swings today is beyond even the best pros. They cant maximize their distance and improve their accuracy as if you hit longer you can also dial down and be even more accurate.
One issue is beliefs, when Hans tells me, dude I hit my 2i the same distance I hit driver last year and I say, isn’t that a good thing then? What typically happens is that people have a specific logic to how things works in golf and other fields, that logic btw is questioned when I come and do what I do due to I am able to do magic.
Atm I am working to implement the template I developed, 6 practice sessions and I have the essence down and expect to have it all working shortly. At age 53 and 165cm tall I am not 195cm tall like Mike Austin or as tall as Hans for that matter. Still checking what I just did yesterday with a 9i at 160 steps carry in the 1c temperature means I should be able to have a 9i into summer temps in the range of 160m or more. That is also with the early implementation as I found the core throw mechanic. The field I hit during this time of year is running short. Soon I be able to go to my benchmark range where there is a valley type so one can see where the ball lands as its uphill there.
I have no idea what distances I be able to do as this is the first time I am doing this.
I can only do what I do, measure the distances hit, then as I improve and stabilize my mechanic find out what that distances are for me.
The recent swing adjustment I did for Hans added up to 3 iron clubs of increased distance.
For any tour pro that’s a distance addition they have a hard time to accept even believe in due to people as golfers believe distance increase cant be done like that without gym and a load of talent. Your stuck in what people have told you and you then created this mental model of golf in how it works and then when someone as myself comes along all that is then in jeopardy as I can do shit people don’t even know exists.
I added 50 yards in less than 2 minutes first time with Hans in his old modern swing mechanic, funny thing he hits a lot longer now with the RBIm swing btw……………………
If it was simply the swing that did the scoring it be easy.
The golf swing distance is fun for sure but once you can hit it long you then as anyone else will ask, how do I do this more consistently hitting more greens, closer to the hole etc…
If Anna Nordqvist can make 75% of Gir, but loose out with 2.5 putts worse than the best each round there is a correlation between her proximity to the hole and her making putts. She is either to far away or are misreading putts all the time. Tour pros guess when they read putts, I don’t.
So, if one asks, if I can hit a given distance let say 300 yards then a normal golf course is short. If you can hit 350 yards than any golf course that people say is long is normal even short for such a player.
The increased distance allows you an advantage.
If your able to do better with it is unknown as we see with Anna that she cant score low due to her short game isn’t good enough in spite of her hitting 75%+ GIR on average.
So you want every skill that matters as good as possible not just distance even though it does help
