Have a good day.

Oh, OK then!

You claim to shoot in the 70's and also to be a teacher .In your mind this gives you creditability and think people will be impressed by it.
I don't think anyone belives that you are a teacher Patrick. For me you gave yourself away by posting pictures of one of your "Students" and asked the forum for advice on how to fix his swing!! Patrick, no teacher would do this. I think you should do yourself a favor and get some help!!

 

I've been for help and I am trying to turn over a new leaf. Have you ever heard of a thing called forgiveness? I dared to question the hierarchy of this board and have been branded for life. I'm not seeking to be liked or believed, in fact, I don't give a holy.

BTW, coaching is my thing, and perhaps as I don't have a major in English, my brilliance doesn't seem to shine through.

Just a thought!

I have a major in English, and I can tell you language skills don't make you a better or worse troll. You're not even that good of a troll if the admins can outsmart you so easily. The big letters that say "Troll" next to your name are a dead giveaway. At least Fake WSimpson was committed, he didn't do such an amateurish job as you. And when he was found out, he had remarkable class for a fraud. By being reasonably well behaved, he's probably trolling us harder than ever.

 

Forgiveness is something you find in Game Improvement clubs. If you're looking for some, you won't find it here. Absolution? Go find a priest. But as Shakespeare said, "Riddling confession finds but riddling shrift". Go ponder that.

UM, so I guess I'll get called Patrick again but is it possible to discuss the content of Patricks post and not if he's a troll or whatever. The content of the post is interesting and controversial......to me that's interesting....thats good isn't it?. I reckon it's more interesting than "Patricks a troll"... "no I'm not"!!!......."yes you are"!!!

 

Patrick can you elaborate on your aim and other stuff please!

Sir Walter Scott wrote a wonderful piece about me...

"The wretch concentred all in self.
Living shall forfeit fair renoun
and doubly dying shall go down,
To the vile depths from whence he sprung.
Unhonoured, unwept and unsung!"

If this is a quoting contest, then I think I've won hands down.

Go ponder yourself.

I'd say this sums you up:

 

If poisonous minerals, and if that tree,
Whose fruit threw death on (else immortal) us,
If lecherous goats, if serpents envious
Cannot be damn'd, alas ! why should I be ?
Why should intent or reason, born in me,
Make sins, else equal, in me more heinous ?
And, mercy being easy, and glorious
To God, in His stern wrath why threatens He ?
But who am I, that dare dispute with Thee ?
O God, O !  of Thine only worthy blood,
And my tears, make a heavenly Lethean flood,
And drown in it my sin's black memory.
That Thou remember them, some claim as debt ;
I think it mercy if Thou wilt forget. 

 

Essentially, you can't resist the temptation to troll. You keep doing it and being punished, and it's worse because you know better. And you ask Eric for forgiveness even though you're causing trouble for him, because he has boundless patience and mercy (Except he doesn't, that's why he banned you and branded you a troll).

Hi Logman,

Its all so Petty. I start a thread with some substance and they all jump on my back again and again.

I will discuss GAASP, and so on, when I can find some time. I'm still trying to grasp the comment about aligning the body and aiming being the same fundamental. Thats like saying stance and posture is the same thing.b3_huh.gif

You forgot the commas at the end of the first 2 lines, and it's Hallowe'en, not Hallow'een. The apostrophe is used to denote a letter taken out. In this case, Hallowe'en is the festival of All Hallows' Evening, the "All" being left out, and the "Evening" being shortened to "Even" with the apostrophe replacing the "v". "Halloween", with no punctuation, is also acceptable, but since NuclearMike used up all the apostrophes in his other thread to make us aware of improper use of punctuation, I thought I'd point it out.

To say I am impressed with the correction would be an understatement. However I would have been even more impressed if you had any comments about the original post.

Could have taken the thread as a non-trollish thread until this post.

 

I also prefer cutting grass with a lawn mower.

I think the first three are the most important and 5SK is just a complicated way of explaining one and three. Knowledghe of D-Plane would help more with a physics major than the golf game.

'Concept' - A general idea derived or inferred from specific instances or occurrences.

Our body understands and can perform better when a simple concept is put in place instead of lengthy and complicated explanations of swing mechanics etc.

Beginners adopt a good posture when you use comparisons like 'goalkeeper, gun-slinger, skier etc' instead of trying to explain this using directives for every body part.

I find all of the four swing concepts simplifies the mechanics and the cutting grass concept encourages golfers to perform something that they are actually doing during the practise swing.

I prefer to give the command, "Jump" instead of saying, " Bend your knees and push yourself away from the ground."

Yeah, real complicated. It's even got the word "simple" right in it!

The problem with that is it's not going to help someone who doesn't know how to jump.

 

"Make a great golf swing!" Oops.

 

We use feels all the time while we're teaching. You've never seemed to understand that. Heck, one of our more popular videos has Dave throwing a heavy rock.

So you're going from Five Simple Keys down to four simple keys? I guess if I walked into a video store and saw the 5SK DVD sitting there and then saw your 4SK stuff right there next to it, I sure know which one I'd pick.
