"Talent" is an elusive term......from a purely physical standpoint, the world is full of players who have all the shots, but not the ability to "get it done" (Ty Tyron, for a loose comparison). I think there are two different thoughts going on here.....one believing that Led Poision is to blame.....the other believing that Wiesy doesn't have the six inches between the ears to really get it done.....the truth probably is somewhere in the middle.....and I am of the opinion that Led is far, far less to blame than Michelle
Been working on casting - or more specifically what is causing me to want to cast so bad. Anyway - my wife is a former college softball player and, in general, much more athletic than me. When I was working with the shaft in the end of my grip (ie - don't whack yourself) she was able to do it right away.
She doesn't like hitting balls in the garage or making swing videos - but I got her to do it tonight - just a few minutes ago.
So she is big-time casting it, too. She just has a flat left wrist at the bottom of her swing which is at the ball. She starts dumping lag immediately in the downswing and when our hands reach our trail legs, we are identical (bad) position - with the clubhead and shaft in-line with our arms.
When I *try* to have a flat left wrist at impact - we are basically identical all the way through. It's just I let that go for right now since I realized I was making a better "circle" but the bottom was still at the ball. Instead I'm really trying to drop my hands, let the club fall, make a good pivot, go wide/narrow/wide, etc . .so who knows what my left wrist is doing at impact, lol . .can't keep track of it right now.
It makes me wonder how many people think they are not casting it but actually are. I bet quite a few . because you can totally hit good shots and make some decent impact even though you are dumping lag and correcting with your hands/lower body/or however you do it.
I also took a few dozen swings - just showing her the things I was working on. She was like "oh yeah - that makes sense - let me try another video" . . .the next video was identical to the first, lol. Welcome to my world.
