"Otherwise you can go to college and play golf for a college. And if you're like Tiger Woods, you will end up on the PGA Tour circuit one day. But, that's how you become a professional golfer."

 

Ahahahahahahahahahaha Thank you for sharing.

At :57 in, "and then I swing normal"...Well..........we're waiting.

 

Looks like an octopus riding a ceiling fan.

Poor Romo, 3 months from now he'll be spinning his hips, on his back foot and his index will have gone up by 4 shots. z6_surrender.gif

To me it didn't look like Romo was taking it very seriously. I thought he was about to roll his eyes when he was talking about the clubface turning over.

Besides the obvious cock up with face and path, at what discrete point during the downswing is the club head traveling "in to in"? Through hyperspace, maybe ...

"In to in" would be the preferred swing path, right?  Club comes down from the inside, becomes tangent to the target line for only an instant, then goes back to the inside on the throughswing. As opposed to the other two scenarios of "out to in" and "in to out" which cross over the target line.

 

Ideally, of course, the ball is struck before the club reaches the tangency point.

He's saying that there's no real "in to in" because the path doesn't change much during impact. All swings are "in to in" at some point in the swing.

 

It's a smaller point to mention given the much larger errors elsewhere on the sign. I asked on Facebook how old that image is. Just curious. I no longer care much if other instructors don't know this basic info. I just hope everyone here (because I care about your golf games and want to see you all improve and enjoy the game more) knows why it's bunk.

All swings are "in to in" through the entirety of the downstroke, but there's no point where the club head is making that motion. It's going (in to) out up to low point and then (out to) in after low point. At low point it's going straight (down the baseline).

I believe it was taken in the last couple of days (if not yesterday). 

 

 

And while I'm at it, what I love most about that pic is the "Level, Steep, Shallow." Too funny e3_rolleyes.gif

I think that's how you hit a draw

post #125 of 177

Explains how to hit a draw by first aligning to the target, then closing the face. Then he hits a push draw that ends up right of the pin.

 

Remember guys:

"I believe in having my Ph.D in impact, and the inch afterwards, and I think that's what you should do too. That way, when you hit it good, it's not a big surprise. It's not like 'Well, my timing's good today.' "

This is so bad you almost suspect it's a deliberate wind-up. z2_scared.gif
