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.
He won 5 Opens.
His mechanics were solid.
The old classic swings were a better option than todays contorted modern theory.
“I’ve had multiple that have perfect sequence with pivot and great lower body that lose structure of the arms and create slack in transition where right arm increases in flex and left arm moves more across the chest. It’s why GG emphasizes maintaining with or even widening arms coming down. A great lower body motion doesn’t ensure the arms work correctly. It makes it easier but doesn’t ensure it.”
That’s iteachgolf saying that on golfwrx, another one that don’t understand the golf swing.
A proper pivot always syncs the arms and whatever you all it perfectly. Obviously he don’t know what that is.
someone asked about his goat humping,
“Not enough forward bend and likely too close to the ball as well.”
That’s advice you get on golfwrx from a golf trainer who does not know he is wrong.
Monte don’t understand why he goat humps.
Adam lower back issues incoming with that pressure on the lower body.
No real power, compensated swing.
The other guy with a swing designed by me is both longer and more accurate.
Article and swing here with Adam.
Hans use the ground force going down to balance him, Adam use a change of direction adding more timing to his mechanics. Compensational swing mechanics from Adam, horrible.
In history only a handful have actually made it.
Thedanplan will fail. I root for him but he made a few mistakes, one he went with the modern swing and didn’t hire me. His back crashed and he got injured. Was not a surprise.
Second science states 10k hours is the key to make you an expert but there is a lot of people having 20k hours not making it and there are 1200-1500 players each year trying to make the tour facing amateurs, semi pros and actual tour pros that didn’t make the cut so your faced with 30 places for a card and 1200 other golfers going for it.
So why is it so difficult?
You cant simply do what a tour pro is able to do.
They have mastered the misconceptions and adapted to solve the equation to score low. While their game is good scoring wise they also can shoot 66 or 82 any given day as a tour pro.
So as I study this as I am coaching a guy I had no problem with this at all. I analyzed the deep practice 10k hours didn’t account for a superior strategy or a better mechanics in the golf swing or the putting system. I then devised to match or improve the stats a tour pro is able to do that should at least allow the player to play at their best in any event.
Then as that is happening I focused on the performance and consistency even more, as the golf swing allows you a superb confidence and the putting ensure you wont miss much at all you then can map and measure your worst and best in average to find out if your more consistent. Less bogies is a good thing as the more par and birdies you make the less you need to do to perform a lot better. In golf terms changing your game with one or two shot a round is huge over time.
Where does those shot come from then?
No one knows.
You can practice deep practice but without a solid mechanic and a better strategy you will not succeed. That’s the hard fact. Practice alone wont make it for you.
I measure stuff so if I am not able to measure something I find a way to do so as that allows me to know what to do. As I taught Hans the new swing he started to say he hit it more straight and his lower back stopped hurting and other things started to happen. While that was happening I also need to bring down measurement to where the ball went and what was going on and a lot of stuff he did and wanted to do had to go due to those didn’t allow him to play better. In terms of coaching it was, Hans but this is how I want to do it and me, don’t care cant do it that way need to do this that way I say. He went and tested my way, and then did that in spite of him telling me he didn’t want to.
My way worked better.
Golfers as well as business want results but if you have beliefs about what will make you create that result is false and flawed then your stuck without knowing your stuck.
Hiring someone like Monte, Iteachgolf, Waldron, Leadbetter, Haney, Foley, Como etc…will make you struggle with your game forever you never reach the level of your potential as its not doable nor possible with such golf trainers.
The modern swing isn’t good enough for the tour pro consistency you want.
So if you’re a semi pro and want to go tour then your faced with a decision to make – do I continue to do what’s difficult that I will struggle with my whole career or listen to a guy that can explain why to me? Hans knows stuff about the golf swing now that no one else knows except me and Larry to some extent.
The difficulty in scoring low in golf can spell consistency or the lack of it. No tour pro can have their A game day out and day in. They soon accept that but still struggle with it. A tour pro are getting paid with the result they do. Each shot and each putt and each chip and such counts and the pressure to know each failed shot can cause a bogie or double or worse are a difficult way to deal with performance.
When your game isn’t up for the tour pro level you think that its due to some stuff and then continue to do whatever you did more to next time. Tiger woods failed blocked shot with Haney and not knowing why he become blocked and cursed and hit the clubs into the ground due to the awful shot. The Sean Foley failed 5 years Tiger experiment of failure? If the best player the last generation struggle with the modern swing and he won 14 majors then if you’re an amateur as thedanplan don’t you start to think about that then??????????????????????
Some others like Dj Watts believe their recent more perfect mechanical action is now better than the previous perfect mechanical action and he don’t come and ask me as I already did define it?
Isn’t life strange?
So a lot of hurdles to make it as a tour pro.
So for me the goal was easy, define a way a map and path that allows the player to reach results they can qualify and make the tour and play there.
There was no plan and path out there that worked so I started to design one.
Each bit and step takes time to do and test and evaluate properly and tweaks been made is made ongoing as Hans practice and give me his review and perceptions.
So its difficult for an amateur not to say impossible and for a tour pro level your faced with 1500 other such to make a spot that only 30 can have. Its such odds one have to think about what to do to make such. Hans atm can play along the stats and is starting to implement the performance mode with RBim 5 and are in the coming weeks when spring happens able to test this out in practice and my estimate is that his scoring should go in an all time low for him.
The odds are the same for everyone so you really want to know that you can score low in any way beforehand. Both in practice, in some qualification and in actual competitive rounds. To be able to control and influence your own focus and performance to be able to press it on and off at will. So you can go easy and walk the course and then be able to bring it on when needed to make more birdies if needed.
And then obviously do it consistently over time bringing the performance level you’re a game in every round you go play.
Then you stand a chance.
Now while this is early and no statement from Woods himself its no secret when you have Chris Como an expert in biomechanics who really don’t know his stuff teaches a bad back from Foley experiment its spells “DISASTER”.
Is Woods career over?
It seems like the modern swing golf experts finally cut the last straw of the camels back.
However its still a rumor and maybe Tiger comes back to Masters and win his 15 major right?
The background is the following, the guy I coach fails to paly due to lower back pain. I tell him to change his swing and he refuses. I assumed he could do that easily as he could play you know the way he did. I was dead wrong. The tour pro can play but they have no real understanding of the process they engage into.
So I decided to study the golf swing, and as I did I choose Mike Austin.
For me that was enough to dwell into the modeling of what Mike did.
I started to hang around some golf forums, looked into Dj Watts work and told him he was off base so he banned me and if you check what he does he change his perfect mechanics every other week or so.
Ben Hogans pivot sucks.
Nicklaus had a hybrid swing same as many others like Mike Dunnaway.
I told Hans, ok start with this and I told him to lift his left heel and foot. He didn’t want to do that but at some point when you tried so much he caved in and started with that and hit the 4i longer than his 3i suddenly.
I then added upon that along the way as I am tired and been for 16 years my work gone slow and as I study and found and defined I then told Hans, do this. It always worked to improve what he did immediately. Its not like what Sean Foley or Chris Como or such teach as this works without then needing more practice, it just works.
When Hans swung as the above the Mike Austin trainers I have a contact with said, wow. Suddenly they saw something there. Its called identification from what they was used with Mike Austin. I then continued to define and work this along the way and now have a complete diagram of the biomechanics involved both in Mike Austin’s swing motion and the modern swing motion and why the modern swing sucks so much balls.
I didn’t need to use kinesiology or the golf machine book or whatever.
Modeling means you cut trough what someone does and are able to teach and instruct a way to transfer skills to someone else that then can replicate and do it to. There are several ways we can model, the most common one is to watch someone do it and then practice what they do, kids watch Ivan Lendl on TV bounce is balls 5 times then the next day the kids bounce balls 5 times when they serve. They see Tiger Woods swear and cuss and throw clubs on TV and the next day you see kid cuss and swear and throw clubs when they miss a shot. You watch Ben Hogan swing and read his book and then you try to copy it and many tried it but still they cant do what Hogan did.
That type of self modeling is common trough the ages. The Master have an apprentice picking up patterns from their Master.
However modeling that I developed works on a different level. I am able to identify what works and what’s needed and what isn’t needed to do to make it work.
Hans had lower back pain and that pain went away as he started to learn the new swing, and as I tweaked what he did his body and movement changed along the way. He can hit it longer now and with higher degree of precision which btw he still are adjusting to as he don’t believe he is doing better than Jordan Speith, Rory Mcllroy, Tiger Woods. However none of them can do what he now can do.
Now some might think well then if that’s true then you should shoot 55 every round right? First what happens is you hit a lot more greens and closer to the flag so your putting now receives a lot of pressure which btw is what separates the tour pros out there, the tee to green and putting gained shots. As soon Hans complained about his putting I then went and taught him the putting system I developed. His first response, but I make everything?
I removed variables in green reading, his green reading is now 100% accurate every time Now. No one can teach or do that out there in golf, none.
Green reading is so important but since you guess then you also have variance in your putting. Then I adjusted the stroke for him and he can putt the lights out each time.
Still for me it wasn’t enough with the Mike Austin’s swing motion as I tweaked it for precision and accuracy for golf scoring along with the putting and then the next bit.
The modeling I do is based upon what I calculated what was needed to do to do low scoring. It wasn’t the golf swing alone, it was putting also. Then the performance mode.
I didn’t build a golf swing and then was calling it a day.
I built a model to score low against the best in the world.
This means it contains a system now in how to perform a golf swing to be able to do a 4% dispersion which btw no golf swing system can do except mine in the world while retaining a 300+ yard driving.
If your not excited as a tour pro by now it most likely means you don’t understand the difference with what I am able to do for you vs what everyone else taught you to believe which you cant do.
A 4% dispersion means at 100 yards you hit the shot 2 yards left or right at an average. At 200 yards it means 4 yards left or right of your target. What for example anyone else teaches you they cant make you have such dispersion. Jordan Speith would shoot much lower scores if he could do that today but he cant.
I measure two things, proximity to the hole and dispersion. To do that as good as you can you want the RBIm golf swing system as it will allow you unprecedented precision and accuracy and make you hit longer in the process. You be also streamlining your putting into a higher consistency you cant believe atm.
I didn’t choose Ben Hogan as if you check his mechanics you find that it has to much timing involved and that shows up as he lost his game a few years after the “accident” as he started to do a move to the left faster and faster. He couldn’t play competivly as soon his leg gave up.
Nicklaus had timing issues and he also pushed his hips so he had to replace them.
Mike Austin was swinging at 300 yards even at age 77 with old clubs and balls with todays equipment he be at 350 yards at age 77. Imagine be beaten by an old guy hitting longer than you on tour. ouch.
Today Hans have no lower back pain, his chest area is also cleaned up as I showed him the physical movements involved in this golf swing.
His accuracy and consistency has improved along the way.
The performance mode allows him to adjust trough feedback what to do to make sure to be in the moment as he plays without distractions.
Todays modern swing that Leadbetter, Harmon, Haney, Foley, Como, Monte, iteachgolf, Waldron or whatever the name is makes you struggle with your game every day you go play.
You will score lower, have a game that always works and have a confidence you never knew existed based upon what you can actually do and perform when you play.
Don’t you love it when they have this best golf trainers in the world and then they show a swing like this from the world nr 1. Separated in 3 dimensions is the best they can do? The below shows Jordan Speith, horrible mechanics.
I guess what I teach a tour pro vs what everyone seems to do on tour is massively better. Want to lower scores and play consistently?
Yea lets talk.
