Very good notice, why do you think he was streaky and sprayed it the rest of the time?

Not sure what's in Module 2, but looks like Payne's (RIP) lower body is a little out of position- he missed the squat. Just an observation. Hey, I've come up with a new swing image which may help describe angular acceleration to and past the ball and the poor results if acceleration is lost. Let me know what you think. But first we have to go back to pre-school.

Remember Jack and Jill? Lets say Jack is on top of 45 degree hill and Jill is at the bottom of the hill but 45 yards off-line from Jack. Now you will have to visualize the right triangle formed with Jack standing on one end of the hypotoneuse and Jill the other, and the bottom of the hill representing the base plane line.

If Jack were to roll a bowling ball transversely across the hill (right down the plane line )on a direct line to Jill, the ball would have to be accelerated all the way to Jill. If acceleration is lost, the ball will be subject to outside forces and go off-line quickly (flex loss, toe drop, etc. ) much like a putt may fall off to the lowside. Kind of goofy maybe, but does this description work?

Fantastic Post(s)----Thread.

Let me ask.....

1. Is it the LEFT SIDE of the body that directs this "acceleration" ??
2. How VITAL is clearance of the LEFT SIDE. Look at Furyk in that last photo ???
3. Does "work" with a WHIPPY SHAFT help train the body.

I've worked with the Whippy Shafts before, but have had various results. I have felt warming up by hitting shots with ONLY my left arm swinging club ((I'm right handed golfer)) has helped me find better contact.

Thoughts ??

HappyGas: The short answer to your questions is no farther away that your local hardware store. Buy an old heavy sickle if you can find one these days. Then find a field with tall, narly weeds. Knock those weeds down with authority and pay attention to what is driving and what is powering the action- you are already born with those instinctive moves. However, with a light golf club in our hands it is very easy to overpower the club and get out of positions quickly. It is there that the modules @ ABS will be of tremendous significance for you. They will show you what dynamic positions you need to be in at certain points in time so that you won't overpower the action. And many people get confused with the sequencing with such a light object in our hands. Think that covers it. :) RR

I HAVE BEEN LOOKIING FOR THIS PHOTO FOR TWO YEARS!

I think about that photo all the time..

I used to have this posted on my wall above my bed when I was rebuilding my golf swing. It was that exact photo..
I was modeling my golf swing after it...

That just made my day!

Shouldn't this thing have two pivot points or two axis or rotation in order to be a viable representation of the golf swing? That's something I've always wondered about.....
