Whatever you do people will have an opinion about it.
It wont change things.
Whatever you do continue to do it either its wrong or not wont matter as you’re the one doing it. Now and then we might need a reality check so we don’t blow a nuke in a big city to prove a point its safe to do so….(it isn’t)
Now for example this video the guys spend 21 minutes explaining the golf swing.
I was bored the first 10 seconds.
They don’t know.
If you ask me, why would you want to know things your doing while your doing it?
Why don’t you show the motion, then explain what makes the motion works the way it does in a way without me having to conceptualize words and hard concept’s into meaningful stuff?
There is no plane.
There is no over or under plane.
If you study what you think is great when in reality it isn’t you end up with a flawed assumption without knowing it.
When you build a golf swing and it works, you never need to fix it again or even explain it.
I understand the need to explain things, I do that a lot I also understand the need to find out how things works as I do that to.
When I am done there is no need to explain it.
The issue with science is that they have as anyone else take what people do so if your successful in a sport then obviously they study that, if you did that before the Flosbury flop for example in high jump you would end up with a superb explanation that was awesome I bet and then you be coming in last in every high jump after that 1968 Olympics.
The PGA Tour for example are played by people who mastered the pressure playing and then don’t fix what is broken and play with what they know. Mike Weir won masters then went to stack and tilt swing system to change his swing and lost the card. There are players that want to be better but they often end up missing the point and often loose their card.
I understand that the swing is part of the equation the other is performance how to bring out your best every time. After producing a lady to be Olympic material in triathlon it just shows what I do works for physical endurance due to they are as well needed to be efficient in what they do. The more efficient the faster they can swim, ride a bike and run.
Our body and brain works by conserve energy as any unneeded action cost energy, it will also constrain the system so moving the body to a golf swing and your filled and riddled with compensations you will have issues with efficiency. First you hit it short and then try to master accuracy to compensate. (Luke Donald for example)
If you have better efficiency you hit longer. Then if you use better mechanics you hit it even longer with efficiency. I expect Hans to reach 350 yards in his golf swing mechanics hitting a normal drive not over extending his integrity. This is done trough better mechanics, efficiency and adjusting things like launch angles, driver shaft etc.. I don’t want him to toll out to much with a driver due to controlling distance then is really hard.
Having unwanted movements in a golf swing creates strain, compensations that then the tour player learned to play with. They also constantly need to fix their swings, like Tiger Woods who was so angry hitting balls after a Master round due to him couldn’t play the way he wanted and Hank Haney tried to smooth it over.
While the golf swing is important as people want to hit it long once you do that then we can focus on accuracy and efficiency creating a tighter dispersion but that is worthless without a performance model to go along with it.
I thought, let bring out the best of the player let them play their best game each time. Issue I had was I was also stuck in the way I been trained and the way any model works in a given field so NLP for me had to be abandoned so I did.
Naturally people will use whatever model they have to then try understand the new. Then opinions will flare, people told me on golfwrx how Hans swing sucked as his angles was wrong. I didn’t mind that as opinions as onions are layered with whatever model people come from so should I listen to guys who cant make someone hit a ball better?
I spend 20 minutes with an amateur on a range and he flush it every time. I don’t even know his golf swing system at all and don’t care. I increased his efficiency with the motion he had.
That how Hans gained 50 yards in 2 minutes. He hit it longer however today with his new RBIm motion mechanics and more fun he needs less energy to do so.
Obviously this is just my opinions.
I leave the onions to someone else.
Hans is going trough an adaption phase atm, his new feedback he has is now setting into an athletic action with instinct so he now can play better without being concerned with whatever his angles or planes might be or if his wrists are doing what they should or not.
His swing in other words are getting better over time without me needing to tell him what to do.
I like that as a coach I don’t need to do the work.
Time to get me coffee.
