Damn. You must not only be the best coach in the world but also have the uncanny ability to know how far every single person reading this thread can hit a golf ball.

He also cut the video short so we would not see the ball land well short of the fence.

So it seems like some of you guys have past experience with soon tourpro. I have to ask...Is he some whacko that is a legendary teacher in his own mind? Or is he just a guy that likes to troll around?

Just think how far he could hit it with Key 3 ... we'll just never know.

Probably just trolling around. I mean come one, the first video was just the same swing put back to back. I can do that with windows movie maker in about 15 minutes.

 

At least I hope he's a troll, if not then that is just sad.

I wish he wasn't.

 

I'd love for someone who actually knows a bit about the Mike Austin swing (or the swing that has his name but that he doesn't teach properly) to be able to actually tell people why it's so much better.

 

Until then, Occam's Razor would tell you that they don't because they can't.

Oh Occam's Razor, such a cruel bastard

I hope you realize that the difference between the #1 tour pro in driving distance and the last tour pro is typically around 50 yards.  

 

If you could do that, with anybody, it wouldn't be a secret.  It would be scientific breakthrough of epic proportions.

I can throw a house over a hedge. True story.

Heck 500 yards for @Ernest Jones is just his pitching wedge.

Will you teach me? I'm a tour level house thrower.

The top video shows a really nice swing, but the speed of the ball does not look nearly fast enough to be over 250 yards, much less 350. I suppose some of it might be because of the cold? Unless, you are including the roll and slide you get on the ice in the background.

You really can't tell that kind of thing from a video like that. If the ball is moving straight away from the camera it will appear to be only shrinking in size, not actually going anywhere.

 

Let's not reach - there's plenty of actual material over which to quibble. :)

I may be wrong, but @soon_tourpro, don't I remember you posting that same bottom video quite awhile ago?
post #71 of 106
Soon_tourpro turned the modern golf teaching and how to improve at golf into a big conspiracy theory. Lol

Every time someone posts hooey like this, I think of Professor Harold Hill in The Music Man with his "think" method.
