…with something simple that makes perfect sense.
The simple, obvious answer that will make you better 6 months from now and hit the ball 20 yards farther, is not as fun as some complicated contrived BS that will take 10 shots off your handicap this week and add 100 yards to your drives.
…only to find out 6 months later you have to quit golf because the forced “miracle motion” does not allow your swing to work properly.
“Miracle” swing fads and cliches are exactly like those pills that promise to make your penis 6 inches longer.
Simple and common sense is not just in golf, it’s with everything.
I remember what an uproar there was when the second Star Wars Trilogy came out and Anakin Skywalker (the young Darth Vader), was a whiny, petulant, teenage tool.
Now if you want to say Hayden Christensen was a bad actor and Jar Jar Binks made you want to find George Lucas and flick him in the ear from behind, I won’t argue that. However, it makes perfect sense that the Galaxy’s greatest villain used to be a whiny, petulant teenage tool.
The golf swing is the same thing. If you just look for sense in the situation you will find the answer…and you will find that preconceived, grandiose notions usually turn out to be false.
Let’s take swinging inside/out for example. That is exactly what happens when you turn, keep your arms in front of you and turn. The club comes from inside the target line, out to the ball (target line) and immediately back to the inside. That is on plane as well.
If you force the club to go inside/out, it goes back too far inside and either comes over the top, or goes to the ball too far from the inside. That ends in a flip, or a club that gets outside the target line. What you end up with in either case is a forced situation that doesn’t work and the Galaxy’s greatest villains…early extension and a shank.
Learn to make a simple good golf swing and the cliches take care of themselves.
