This thread on GolfWrx is a beautiful thing…LOL.
Imagine if someone, who was a decent golfer, tried to improve their swing by reading this thread. “Do I want to be a swinger or a hitter…or a switter?”
I worked with a TGM guy and if you replace the “w” with an “h” that’s what it turned me into.
I guess I didn’t have my PP working…and there was no Viagra.
At worst I have a rudimentary knowledge of everything they were talking about and all I could think of was…
“Could I break 90 after reading this?
“How many penalty strokes could I accumulator?”
I don’t find anything about The Golf Machine terribly incorrect…or incorrect at all, but I do find it too complicated for a player at any level to comprehend. I find Homer Kelly a wonderful scientist, but do not think TGM has as much practical use as it is given. It is for informational purposes only, IMO. Instructors who use this information to do a better job teaching their students, are great. Instructors who teach the information directly to the students should be forced to go to and pay for “The David Leadbetter Experience,” out of their own pocket.
The analogy I can come up with is take a man on a deserted island with a library full of books on women. He then writes a book on how to pick up chicks. Reading that book would not help you get lucky if you are not a ladies’ man in the first place.
I will now duck as TGM pundits throw empty beer bottles at me and burn me in effigy. Like I said, I am through trying to avoid offending people who don’t like me anyway.
