Was that what you meant? Yeah, then the Norman clip wasn't a good example.
Way too much lateral movement for anyone who doesn't have the talent to consistently get the timing right, imo. Not sure if you were showing this as a model or just to show his "jumping". I have fought lateral movement my whole life and now focus more than anything else on making sure I "swing inside the barrel"
Just bad information imo. Good chance they haven't spent any time with a S&T instructor or attended a clinic.
Using the ground for power, ("jumping"), hitting the ball first, (compression), hands in, (utilizing angular momentum) are pieces all players use to hit the ball far. Here is Greg Norman pushing his hips forward, tucking his butt, hands forward at impact with a driver, and straightening the legs, jumping using the ground. Don't think he struggled with hitting it far enough :)
Is Bubba Watson a Stack and Tilt Player? I have been watching the Shawn Clements videos and Bubba appears to be a single plane and a stack and tilt. He has characteristics of both imo.
I don't know enough about his swing to say, but he hits the long ball and has very high GIR stats whenever he's in contention. An interesting, albeit polarizing, character indeed.
Bubba is not SnT cuppedTin. SnT isnt only one plane and centered backswing. Most pro's have these characteristics in their swing.
Correct, sorry didn't mean to confuse anyone, Bubba does not work with Andy and Mike. He does demonstrate an important piece S&T advocates, losing flexion in the rear leg. Norman illustrates another piece of the lateral shift, legs straightening to hit the ball far and high. These are power pieces, spine and legs are acting like a lever to launch the ball. Not going to see any long hitters that stay bent over with their torso on the finish.
