    So simple isn’t it?
    You have to fall some before you can ride the bike tho.

    I guess there are two theories about this:

    1) Do something with the club. As a friend of mine says, the body follows the club. Route the club to strike the ball. (Maybe holding the lag would be good for this.)

    2) Do something with your body. The club follows your body, and the ball gets in the way.

    I got you on the “up and around.” The “down and out” thing I’m having trouble visualizing–or visualizing the feel of….

      Dump then turn ?? Dump is down and out is caused by the turn.

    Monte i have a weird question about perspective. Should the club be swung as if we were trying to move it as 1 solid unit through the entire swing or should we view it as if the shaft is super whippy and we are trying to whip the club head through as fast as possible?

      Good question, for which I don’t have a specific answer. You are talking about feels and the answer to our question is discovery by trial and error.

      Bobby Jones was a pretty good stick, and he felt like the clublead was attached to the hands by “a medium such as a string.”

      So, you could say that he wasn’t trying to torque the shaft in any way.

        Yup,, centrifugal force and angular velocity were a whole lot different back then.

      Arron Oberholzer was a Tour winner, I think had some kind of serious medical problem that took him off the Tour.

      On his “Playing Lesson with the Pro” (Golf Channel) he said that you hands are just there to hang on to the club.

      Bobby Jones: “ …I like very much the concept of a free-traveling clubhead at impact…”

      I’d put up the entire quote, but it’s on a video from another guru.
