(Today’s blog post will be succinct but helpful)
You have heard of both of these robots and we have been told they make perfect motions and we should copy them.
Science has yet to make a robot that works as wonderfully as the human body. These robots don’t have the same hinges or working parts as a human body. I want to yell several expletives at the people who want us to copy them.
I also want to fire curses at the people who want us to copy the swings of Ben Hogan and Moe Norman or some other system that is supposed to fit everyone(but you all know that already).
Let me say this loudly.
WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT, BOTH ANATOMICALLY AND MENTALLY. WE SHOULD NOT BE COPYING THE MOVEMENTS OF OTHER PEOPLE OR MACHINES.
FIND YOUR OWN GOLF SWING THAT MATCHES YOUR BODY AND SKILL LEVEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let me take that back. I am going to get a bad hair piece, become as arrogant as possible, have my own show where I tell people how they are not as smart as me, name everything I own after myself, ruin a fledgling football league, build crappy golf courses and say they are better than Pebble Beach and lie about my handicap. Apparently that will make me the richest man on Earth. At least according to myself.
Really folks, we need to get out of this rut we are in about “the right way.” On this blog I suggest a lot of ways to improve that fit natural body motions. Balance, rhythm and getting out of your own way by eliminating things that don’t need to be there. Again, that is the “right way” of doing things.
My semantic mantra. It’s not about doing it the right way. There is no right way, just wrong ways. It’s about avoiding the bad things that get in your way.
OK, maybe not so succinct. Rant over.
